Before & Afters

Hear from Our Patients


Surgeon’s fee for the procedure. Anesthesiologist fee. Surgery center fee. (Unfortunately, not all patients will be candidates to have surgery at Outpatient Services East. If your BMI is higher than 59, your surgery will need to be performed at St. Vincent’s East. If the surgery has to be performed at St. Vincent’s East, the total price will be $9,999.) Post-operative visits for 90 days. Monthly support group meetings.

Consultation/Pre-operative office visit, which is $195. Pre-operative nutrition evaluation/education and post-operative nutrition follow-up, which is $80 in total. Post-operative visits at 6 months and yearly, which are $125 per visit.

Like every operation, there is a risk. Because our patients already have health-related problems, there is an increased risk of complications. However, our team makes sure they thoroughly screen you to make sure that there are no surprises on the operating table. If we feel that it is not safe to operate on you, we will not proceed. However, we will gladly work with you in order for you to be eligible for the operation. Your team will be behind you 100% before, during, and after the surgery.

No problem! We have multiple ways to get you prepared for surgery. We also accept multiple insurances and methods of payment. We even offer outside financing. Sometimes, insurance companies require patients to have a more in-depth workup before surgery. We will work with you one-on-one to start your weight loss journey. The best thing to do is to call our office at 205-833-6907.

Dr. Long charges so much less than other bariatric clinics because he wants to be competitive with his price and provide a phenomenal tool that will benefit the patient’s health and well-being at the same time. By offering a lower price, the patient receives the benefit of an affordable surgery, and Dr. Long receives the benefit of helping a larger amount of patients. The total price for sleeve gastrectomy is made up of the facility fee, anesthesiologist fee, and surgeon fee. Dr. Long has negotiated a very affordable rate from the facility as well as the anesthesiologist group. Those prices combined with his affordable cost have allowed him to provide one of the lowest prices for a sleeve gastrectomy in the country.

  • Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy – 2,083 and counting!
  • Laparoscopic Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass – 446 and counting!
  • Laparoscopic Band Placements/Removals – 222 and counting!
  • Total Bariatric Surgeries – 2,751 and counting!

We cannot stress enough the importance of being truthful & honest about your health & medical history, including but not limited to current medications and previous surgeries. This program is designed to identify low-risk patients who are a good fit for outpatient surgery. Each case is left up to Dr. Long’s discretion and will only be performed if it is deemed safe to do so.

Some of the hotels listed will give a discounted price if you let them know that you are having surgery with Dr. Long at St. Vincent’s East or Outpatient Services East (OSE). The prices are subject to change at any time.
