Blossom Bariatrics at the Forefront of Low Cost Weight Loss Surgery

14 January, 2015

Based on the “2014 Weight Loss Surgery Cost Survey,”’s report, “Cost of Bariatric Surgery: 2014 Surgeon Survey & Key Findings” lists Nevada as the 2nd “Lowest Cost” state for gastric sleeve surgery for 2014. According to the same report, gastric sleeve surgery was the most recommended procedure by bariatric surgeons in the United States.  This is gratifying news to Dr. Tom Umbach of Blossom Bariatrics. He says, “When we were looking around the country for places to start a new bariatric program, Vegas came up and I was very excited from the get-go about Vegas.”

Blossom Bariatrics saves obese individuals thousands of dollars every year by helping them lose their excess weight, which can reduce or eliminate obesity-related health issues and reduce health-related expenditures.

As one of the nation’s leading bariatric surgeons, Dr. Tom Umbach of Blossom Bariatrics provides weight loss surgery at a fraction of the cost of other providers, which saves individuals, employers, and employees considerable money, not only in insurance premiums, but also out-of-pocket expenses.

“As a patient who suffers from obesity-related health issues, imagine reducing, or entirely eliminating, certain insurance or out-of-pocket costs because you have reduced or eliminated the risks associated with obesity,” suggests Dr. Tom.

“When I see the good bariatric surgery can do, I can’t help but ask what I can do to help the most people possible,” confesses Dr. Tom.  “I love it when, 6 months later, I'm seeing people in the office and they're coming back to see me and they've lost 60, 80, maybe even 100 pounds, and they are excited about playing with their kids and their grandkids and they can walk and they can run, and they can do these things they were not able to do beforehand.  It is deeply gratifying I can be a part of someone’s life like that.”

Mary, one of Dr. Tom’s patients shares in a video testimonial, “I had my surgery July 12th, 2012, and I have lost a little under 150 lbs. Had I known about this 10 years ago, I would have done it; my whole life has changed.”
