Surgical Procedures

Determine if You Qualify for Bariatric Surgery

In order to start treatment, we first have to make an assessment through our health questionnaire. This provides us with the information needed to determine whether or not you qualify for bariatric surgery.


Gastric Sleeve

With the gastric sleeve procedure 80% of the stomach is removed through small incisions made laparoscopically. The small remaining portion of the stomach (sleeve) enables the patient to eat smaller portions whilst maintaining a feeling of fullness.

Gastric Bypass

With the gastric bypass procedure a small stomach pouch is created and attached to the middle of the small intestine. This changes the amount of food that the body can digest. It also alters the signals that travel between the digestive system and brain.

Duodenal Switch

Gastric sleeve procedure can be revised to various weight loss surgeries including a Duodenal Switch surgery. This effective weight loss surgery is a great option for people who have significant weight to lose, being both restrictive and malabsorptive.

Single Incision Surgery

Single-Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS), is the newest technological advancement in bariatric surgery. Single incision surgery allows bariatric surgeons to perform the same procedures, including gastric band and gastric sleeve, using only one incision.

Intragastric Balloon

The intragastric balloon is a non-surgical option for weight loss. A balloon is inserted endoscopically into the stomach and left for a period of 6 months to 1 year before removal.

Our Surgical Staff

On the day of your surgery we will take care of everything, you will only rest and recover. After your surgery, we will give you the necessary instructions for continued care at home and we will be available anytime to assist you, help you in the process, or answer any questions.

Medical Tourism

Our specialized staff, both in the United States and Tijuana, Mexico, work together throughout the entire surgery process. Hotel and hospital stay are both included in our surgery packages. Our drivers in Tijuana will provide transportation to and from the San Diego airport as well as between the hospital and hotel. From assessment to recovery, you are in good hands with our medical team.

Who is a Candidate?

Patients may not be right for single incision weight loss surgery, because the surgery requires a clear viewing of the patient’s internal abdomen. Lighter patients are more likely to be a candidate for the surgery. Patients are urged to contact our care specialists to learn about their candidacy at 855-768-7247.
