Blossom Bariatrics Revolutionizing Bariatric Surgeries for Traveling Clients

Blossom Bariatrics has taken many of the traditional stumbling blocks associated with bariatric surgery — long and painful hospital stays, costly, out-of-pocket expenses and risky trips outside of the U.S. — and eliminated them to make the surgical options available to more people.

  Gone are the days when bariatric surgeries required large incisions on the patient’s body, hospital stays of multiple weeks and exhaustive physical tolls from the surgical procedure. Also, medical advancements have helped to reduce the mortality dangers — both during procedures and afterward when infections post-op complications were previously major concerns.

  With the Las Vegas-based Blossom Bariatrics leading the way, bariatric surgeons have used technological advances to ensure minimally invasive procedures with significantly higher safety profiles. Also, with surgeons being more detailed about patient selections (taking into account health conditions and medical requirements), many of the surgical procedures can now be performed as an outpatient process rather than ones that previously required hospital stays. 

  Whereas past experiences often required patients to spend six to nine months of consultation with doctors over several visits and to follow strict guidelines against gaining additional weight, Blossom Bariatrics has managed to streamline the process to reduce the amount of time, expense and stress for the patient.

  “We have enhanced recovery protocols to get patients back home and get our patients on the road to recovery, so that they can start feeling normal as soon as possible,” Blossom Bariatrics surgeon Dr. Matt Apel said. “We use unique anesthesia protocols to minimize post-op complications such as pain and nausea, while simultaneously reducing the patient’s risk of post-op narcotic use, constipation, and risk of perioperative complications.”

  Blossom Bariatrics caters specifically to traveling clients who are seeking permanent solutions to their weight loss issues. At Blossom Bariatrics’ Las Vegas office, patients can transition from consultation to surgery in as short of a time as five days. The total costs include processing fees, testing, hotel stays for traveling patients, VIP transportation to and from all appointments and all post-op checkups.

  There are also major benefits, Dr. Apel said, to having the bariatric procedures performed in a specialized ambulatory surgery center, such as Blossom Bariatrics Las Vegas location. Most importantly, this practice has led to the number of complications risks plummeting and costs dropping. Also, it has helped increase patient satisfaction and comfort levels dramatically.

  “For example, if you own a Cadillac that needs work, do you take it to the shop that fixes all cars and costs more?” Dr. Apel asked. “Or do you take it to the shop that specializes in mechanical work and repair on Cadillacs, specifically, and it also costs less?”

  All the specialization and advancements made has helped Blossom Bariatrics grow into one of the nation’s most successful options for bariatric surgery centers since its start in 2008. Whereas it performed four bariatric procedures a week in its infancy, Blossom Bariatrics has the capability of handling approximately 150-170 clients a month now.

  Also of major importance to potential patients: They no longer have to make risky trips outside of the United States for procedures that often lead to complications and poor results.        

  “We have a specialized team that only works specifically with bariatric surgery patients,” Apel added. “So, our team is especially fine-tuned to the unique needs and struggles of each patient.”
