Weight loss in Spain is easy on the pocket for citizens of the UK and Scandinavian countries
When non-surgical methods such as diet and exercises fail while body mass index (BMI) is above average, Spanish surgeons apply gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, adjustable gastric band, or gastric plication. Here, weight loss surgery is usually performed at centers of excellence even though it is a subspecialty of gastrointestinal surgery.
A lot of UK and Scandinavian citizens choose obesity treatment at Hospital Quiron Teknon due to considerable cost savings (30-40%) and quick non-stop flight. In Spain, sleeve gastrectomy would cost you around $20,000 while gastric bypass, which is the most popular bariatric procedure in the country, can be found for less than $13,000.
