Bariatric Surgery Marketing Strategies

Bariatric Surgery Marketing Strategies to Bring More Patients to Your Practice

Millions of Google searches occur for Bariatric surgery every year in the U.S. Most potential patients will only find your practice online if it is positioned prominently to attract organic traffic.

However, most bariatric surgeons find it difficult to attract and retain patients with bariatric surgery marketing strategies like “before-and-after” pictures combined with patient reviews and testimonials. So how do you plan to compete in this competitive and over-saturated market?

As a bariatric surgeon, you understand the challenges all too well: Media stories scaring away patients considering gastric bypass or lap-band surgery, or low-paying HMO or Medicaid cases are starving your practice of revenue. Maybe your online presence is not showcasing the quality of care that you provide, or one bad review is hurting your practice.

With all these challenges, how will you attract more of the cash-paying, elective bariatric cases you want that pay you up to four times what insurance reimburses? This is where proven bariatric practice marketing services from Practice Builders will help you!

At Practice Builders, one of the most reputed and successful bariatric digital marketing agencies around, we know that you’ll need to utilize proven and result-driven marketing tactics to compete in a crowded market. This means creating a targeted marketing message for your practice that gets heard and drives the desired response.
