One Fixed Price
One Fixed Gastric Bypass, Banding And Sleeve Gastrectomy Price
Everything from just $6,950
If your private health insurance covers weight loss surgery, and you have not had a previously had any form of weight loss procedure in the past, then your program fee is $6,950, whether it’s a gastric bypass, banding or sleeve gastrectomy. Our price is a once off, all-inclusive fee. It covers your surgeon, assistant surgeon, and importantly, your anaesthetist’s fee (this alone usually costs $1,500) as well as our highly regarded comprehensive aftercare program with all the necessary dietary, medical and psychological appointments to help you reach your goal weight by our in-house highly experienced team.
Generally, the only other cost under normal circumstances would be your health fund excess. Further costs would only apply for things like additional pathology, radiology or referred physician consultations if needed during your stay if something unexpected occurs. (This is uncommon, and is a standard pricing policy which applies to any patient within a private hospital). You will not ever be charged further costs from OClinic however. We pride ourselves on being upfront and transparent. Click here to get the full details of our comprehensive program.
Or, if you don’t have insurance don’t worry, we can still help. Ring us on (02) 8197 9595 to discuss your options and costs if you do not have private health insurance. You will need to pay your hospital fees, but you may be surprised at how affordable this can be. Conditions apply.

That’s our promise to you.
How do I know if my private Health Insurance will cover me for weight-loss surgery?
All health funds cover bariatric (weight-loss) surgery, however you may need to be in a high level of cover. To check, simply contact your health fund and quote the following “item numbers” and ask if your hospital costs will be covered at the Mater Hospital Crows Nest or the Sydney Adventist Hospital Wahroonga. It’s that simple! If they say yes, then your complete out of pocket cost will be $6950 plus excess.
What if I already have a gastric band, or had stomach stapling 20yrs ago, and would now like to change to a sleeve or bypass?
The cost for our revisional surgery program is $9950 if you have valid private health cover. This is more expensive than our standard program, as revisional surgery is more complex and requires greater skill and longer operative time. If you are not covered by private health insurance then your hospital costs could be significant- phone us to discuss this.
