Costs


Consultation fees

We are a private facility and our surgeons work outside of RAMQ (non participating physicians within the meaning of the health act). This means that patients must pay all costs. Fees apply to all consultations, including those performed in the office, over the phone, and over video chat.

New Patient: $250

Returning Patient after 90 days post surgery: $100


Surgery Fees

The Surgery Fee includes the following:

  1. All medical, surgical, anesthesia, nursing and support staff fees.
  2. Operating room rental and operating room supplies.
  3. Admission to an accredited hospital for observation after the surgery to ensure the patient’s safety.

When you compare fees to other clinics please be aware that we are the only ones that admit patients to a private hospital for their surgery as well as their post-surgery convalescence according to the CURRENT STANDARD OF CARE.

Revision surgeries start at $ 12,000 (e.g. lap band removal) and are adjusted based on the complexity of the revision in close consultation by your surgeon and your billing agent, Weight Loss Surgery.

Please take note that these are minimum fees for patients who do not have a surgical history that complicates the procedure. They do not include the costs of preparation for safe surgery and proper post-surgery followup.

The above surgery fees do not include:

  1. Pre-operative medical exam and  verification of the medical file for safe surgery.
  2. Pre-operative testing (SMAC, FSC, Vit B12, Folic acid, Ferritine, HbA1c, Chest Xray, ECG).

  4. Post-operative Nursing and Dietetic follow-up up to 3 months.

  8. Remote Patient Monitoring (1 month preop and up to 3 months post-op).

Patients are responsible for the additional cost of these services, 1-5 being mandatory for safe surgery and long-term goal attainment. These additional fees can vary between $2,255 and $4,295 depending on the patients physical status and their preference for the auxiliary services aimed to help them attain their long-term goals.

Our bariatric surgery coordinators will be happy to discuss with you how to obtain these services.
