Bariatric Surgery Procedures
Gastric sleeve surgery is one of the best and most popular weight loss surgery procedures which works by resecting a major portion of the stomach by creating a “sleeve” or banana-shaped pouch without disrupting normal connections with the esophagus and small intestine.
Cost Starts from US $5000
The surgery makes the stomach smaller in size, which reduces the amount of food that the stomach can accept, thereby reducing the food intake. The food bypasses a section of the small intestine resulting in lesser calorie absorption by the body thus resulting in weight loss.
Cost Starts from US $6000
Intra Gastric Ballooning
Intra Gastric Balloon, (IGB) also known as the Gastric Balloon is a simple, non-invasive procedure to treat excessive weight. It involves placing a balloon inside the stomach to reduce hunger and food intake, thereby resulting in weight loss.
Cost Starts from US $4000
Mini Gastric Bypass
Mini gastric bypass, also called One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass, is surgery for morbidly obese. The procedure gives excellent results and the major benefit is that it is less invasive than a classic gastric bypass.
Cost Starts from US $5000
Single Incision Laparoscopic
As its name suggests, SILS is laparoscopic surgery performed through just one small incision. While SILS can be used successfully in a variety of surgeries, it is now becoming a very popular choice for patients who are looking to undergo bariatric surgery.
Cost Starts from US $6000
Duodenal switch surgery is usually advisable for people who are significantly obese, have a Body mass index (BMI) of 50 or above, or a BMI of 40 or above as well as serious type 2 diabetes and other serious health issues.
Cost Starts from US $6500
Revision Bariatric Surgery
Revision Bariatric surgery is used to change or repair one of the many different forms of weight loss surgery used to treat severe obesity. While the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and Mini Gastric Bypass operations are both effective, they do require adjustment from time to time.
Adjustable Gastric Banding
Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, popularly known as “Lap band” or “Gastric band” is a minimally invasive, swift, reversible, and adjustable weight loss surgery procedure that entails placing an inflatable silicone device or band around the top portion of the stomach.
Cost Starts from US $6000

IndiCure has changed our lives forever. The planning from the beginning to the end was of high quality and all questions asked were explained as well as the procedure.
My Fondest memories always of India will always hold a special part of my heart.
My son had a gastric sleeve in Delhi last September 2017. A year later my son is a different young man. Our reason for traveling from Australia was his age is 14. You saved my son’s life and I will be forever grateful for that, the care and service were immaculate. yes, it can be a culture shock, in another country. But it, not any less of what we would have received here.
Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.
One thing that stood out for me, as long as the hospital and the service in the US were compared to the hospital here, it’s better here. And working with IndiCure was that the service was amazing!”
Bariatric surgery also known as weight loss surgery refers to the surgical procedure which changes the digestive mechanism of the body so as to limit the food intake or absorption of nutrients by the body, resulting in weight loss. They are referred to as restrictive or malabsorptive procedures.
Restrictive procedures are Intra gastric ballooning, Lap Band, and Sleeve gastrectomy. They limit the amount of food that the stomach can hold but do not interfere with the body’s normal digestion. Malabsorptive procedures like Gastric bypass and mini-gastric bypass, bypass the small intestine so that fewer calories are absorbed by the body.
The amount of weight loss is quite individualistic and depends on the procedure and the individual. With a lap band, you can expect to lose between 50-60 percent of the excess weight over a period of 2-3 years, while with Gastric bypass, you can lose up to 80 percent of the excess body weight in one to two years. A regain of up to 10 percent of your excess body weight is common. Your goal weight would be set by you and the surgeon determined by your height, lifestyle, and other things.
You are a good candidate for bariatric surgery if:
- Your BMI (Body Mass Index)is above 40 or between 30 to 40 and you have other associated diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, or painful joint condition arthritis
- You are Obese for more than five years
- You do not have glandular diseases such as hypothyroidism
- Are not suffering from depression or other major emotional disorder
People with an inflammatory disease, severe heart or lung disease, esophageal, stomach or intestinal problems, cirrhosis, or who are pregnant are not candidates.
You would be asked to fill out a questionnaire for the assessment by the surgeon and he shall accordingly guide you with the option best suited for you.

There is absolutely no compromise on the quality. The cost of bariatric surgery in India is less because of two main reasons:
