Costs

The cost of gastric bypass surgery at Wakefield is $35,000 - $45,000.
This covers:

- All hospital costs
- Surgeon and anaesthetist fees
- Additional tests required while in hospital
- Routine follow-up visits and investigations related to the bypass during the initial 24 months post-op


Currently, Southern Cross Medical Care Society is the only New Zealand health insurer who will assist with the cost of a gastric bypass operation. They may contribute up to $7,500 depending on your policy and providing you have held the policy for at least 3 years.

The fixed price agreement of $35,000 - $45,000 does not include the two pre-operative consultations which cost $250 each.
