Cost of Band Salvage/ Late Band Complications
Major band complications often occur many years after the original surgery and can present as medical emergencies. The chance of this happening has been reported to be as high as 60% in some European Bariatric Centres, although most UK surgeons currently report serious band complications in 10-20% of patients, so the true risk is still unclear. The Phoenix Irish Health team has expertise in treating this kind of problem and wherever possible will try to salvage the band.
For non-Phoenix patients and those opting for the Silver Care Package, an accurate personalised quotation for the cost of treating a late band complication can be provided on request.
Typically, this costs between £4,750 (simple band removal) and £8,950 (repositioning of a slipped band).
Cost of Treating Weight Regain after Failed Gastric Bypass
The treatment of failed bariatric operations resulting in weight regain requires a high degree of skill and expertise. Patients treated by Phoenix Irish Health have access to some of the most respected and experienced surgeons in the UK and Ireland. Most gastric bypass revisions are carried out by the Phoenix Health senior surgeons in England, with post-op aftercare delivered locally in Belfast by our Northern Ireland team.
Prices for treatment of the failed gastric bypass start from £9,450
