Dear XXXXX hopkins,

There are several different types of weight loss surgery and they are detailed in this very helpful article: http://www.uptodate.com/patients/content/topic.do?topicKey=~M/dMOpAexEBIp7

The cost depends greatly on the individual surgeon and the institution as the technologies available vary widely as does insurance coverage.

I hope this is helpful and please let me know if you have more questions.

DrS
