PlanetHospital is the admissions desk to some of the most affordable and innovative obesity surgeries from around the world. 


Thinking of going abroad for obesity surgery without follow up care?  Don’t even go there!  Follow up is the key essential ingredient to obesity surgeries and only PlanetHospital provides the 360 care for patients who want obesity treatment. Yes, going to another country for obesity surgeries such as the gastric bypass or sleeve is a lot more affordable, but is it worth the risk to your health? 


PlanetHospital does not think so, that is why their obesity packages include follow up care and a free flight to India, Panama, or Costa Rica for your plastic surgery to get rid of the excess skin you will have once you lose all that weight.


PlanetHospital has visited some of the top surgeons from around the globe and has created programs that include surgery and post operative follow up care for its American and Canadian patients; and if you are from outside of US and Canada, they will make sure one is arranged before you get your surgery.


Obesity surgery procedures are no longer just for weight loss, many are now getting this surgery done as a way of battling type II diabetes as well.

Why choose PlanetHospital for obesity and bariatric surgery abroad?

PlanetHospital started quite by accident in 2002, when the original founder was visiting Bangkok and became sick with a pre-existing condition. She was pleasantly surprised by the outstanding medical care she received in Thailand. A dedicated private nurse, bespoke catering and excellent treatment for a fraction of the cost back home.

Bariatric surgery abroad with PlanetHospital

PlanetHospital can arrange a variety of obesity surgery and weight loss treatments overseas:


Duodenal switch

With a combination of gastric reduction and malabsorbtion, duodenal switch has reported the highest percentage of long term weight loss against alternative bariatric surgeries.


Gastric balloon

A intragastric balloon is a silicone ball that is placed in the stomach to help the patient feel full easier for significant weight loss.


Gastric bypass

A gastric bypass is the removal of a portion of the stomach and bypassing the small intestine; it is intended to aid in weight loss for obese patients.


Gastric sleeve

A less invasive option for severe obesity cases. 


Lap band

A lap band is a silicone belt wrapped around the stomach to control hunger and feel full.


Post bariatric treatment

If you have had a lap band, a gastric bypass, duodenal switch or any other weight loss surgery chances are you have lost 50 lbs or more.
