LDS Hospital is accredited by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and the American College of Surgeons (ACS) under their MBSAQIP program, and each of our surgeons have performed hundreds of successful bariatric procedures.
Our nurses and aides give you highly individualized medical care and also treat you with respect and concern. LDS Hospital has newly renovated rooms and special equipment just for our bariatric patients. We will work together to help you with all your needs — nutritional, physical, emotional, and more.
If you live outside the area, your experience can be completed in one trip. Our partners have helped make this process seamless by working to provide hotel discounts with local businesses.
Surgical options we offer:
- Lap Band (Adjustable gastric band surgery)
- Gastric Bypass, or the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
- Biliopancreatic diversion with a duodenal switch
- Gastric sleeve surgery (Sleeve Gastrectomy)
You and your physician will decide which procedure is right for you.
Many insurance carriers will cover part or all of the costs for weight loss surgery. Check with your insurer to find out what they'll cover for you. Some insurance providers accepted by LDS Hospital include:
- United Healthcare
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Many others
Deductibles and co-pays can often be paid with your Health Savings Accounts. If you don’t have insurance or your insurance does not cover the surgical procedure, our partners will work with you to discover other financing options.
