Can I use HSA for for a much needed Sleeve weight loss surgery?

My insurance does not cover weight loss surgery but I have put lots of money away in my health savings account. Am I allowed to use that money to pay for a much needed sleeve?

You can use your HSA to pay for weight loss surgery

That's what the HSA is for!  You can use it to fund your surgery.  Shop around, as there is a large spread in the cost of self-pay weight loss surgery.  We have negotiated a reasonable price with the local hospital, so self-pay patients can have the surgery done for $11,000.
