Gastric bypass surgery is a weight loss (bariatric) surgery for obese people who are looking for a quick solution to their obesity problem and want to see significant improvements in their health. Commonly performed using the minimally-invasive laparoscopic surgery, gastric bypass has several variations, the most common version being Roux-en-Y.

Gastric bypass is the most effective bariatric surgery, resulting in a significant weight loss in people suffering from severe obesity. It is the second most common weight loss surgery after gastric sleeve.

In this article, we are going to explore gastric bypass surgery, its pros and cons, cost, and recovery tips, and provide you with some information about this type of weight loss surgery in Iran.


Gastric bypass is a very popular bariatric procedure in Iran. There are well-skilled and professional bariatric surgeons in Iran who have remarkable experience in gastric bypass and other weight loss surgeries. These doctors are not only highly experienced but also aware of the most recent scientific findings. In addition, some Iranian surgeons have developed surgical techniques that have proved to be far more effective than classic operation.

Both Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and mini gastric bypass are performed in Iran at well-equipped hospitals in Tehran, Mashhad, Isfahan, Kish Island, Tabriz and Shiraz at very reasonable prices. The low prices do not at any rate indicate that the quality of care in Iran is also low. It is simply a result of Iranian Rial’s recession against other currencies.

It’s not just the quality of doctors and hospitals and affordable costs that do count, Iran is a wonderful country to visit; just ask someone who’s been there. Most of the people who have visited Iran report that their attitude toward the country was completely changed after their trip.


Gastric bypass cost in Iran varies depending on the surgeon, the method of bypass surgery, clinic, and especially, the country. In Iran, gastric surgery is more affordable than in other countries. Regular gastric bypass cost in Iran is around $5,500 while a similar procedure is $24,000 in the U.S on average, $20,000 in Canada, $17,000 in Australia, $10,400 in India, and $10,500 in Thailand.

An average mini gastric bypass cost in Iran is around $5,500, whereas the cost of the same surgery in the United States stands somewhere between $15,000 and $25,000. An average mini gastric bypass in Canada is $22,000, $7,000 to $10,000 in Mexico, $26,000 in Australia, and between £10,000 and £15,000 the United Kingdom.
