Choosing a Bariatric Surgeon

We understand choosing a bariatric surgeon is an important decision and the team networking with Tijuana Bariatric Center can guide you through the process. Generally, patients traveling to Tijuana, Mexico, for treatment are encouraged to consider several questions, such as how long a surgeon has been practicing and specifics regarding their education and training. Throughout the process, our team will be available to address your concerns, answer your questions, and help make the process as comfortable as possible for you.

Important Factors to Consider

Once you have decided that bariatric surgery is right for you, your next step will be to work with our center to find the right surgeon. During this time, you will want to ask questions about the doctor’s experience and learn as much as possible about them. To help you feel comfortable with your final decision, it can also be helpful to ask for before and after photos of previous patients. By having as much information as possible about the doctor, and a good understanding of their work, it can help ease any trepidations or concerns you may have.

Common Questions to Ask

Patients are encouraged to be active participants in their treatment. Some good questions to ask may include:

  • What type of experience does the doctor have?
  • How long has the doctor been in practice?
  • Does the doctor have specialized training?
  • Can I view before and after photos?
  • What do patients say about the doctor's standard of care?
  • How often do the doctor's procedures require revisional surgery?

A Network of Highly Qualified Doctors

The doctors networking with Tijuana Bariatric Center are specifically chosen because of their dedication to quality care, their experience, and their focus on delivering optimal results. These practitioners hold their treatment to the same standards as doctors within the United States. This means that when you travel to Mexico for your procedure, you will receive safe, effective care, and the same surgical abilities offered by surgeons near your home.

Our goal is to help patients choose a surgeon they can trust, who makes them feel comfortable and can deliver life-changing results.

Dr. Fernando Garcia has successively performed over 5,000 weight loss procedures. Dr. Garcia also has vast experience, and has participated in fellowships in gastric sleeve surgery, minimally invasive gastric bypass, and LAP-BAND® procedures.

High Quality at an Affordable Price

Bariatric surgery can dramatically enhance patients' quality of life, but the total treatment cost for patients in the U.S. is often prohibitive. When patients choose a surgeon in Mexico, they can receive life-changing care at a more affordable price. In fact, for a fraction of the cost, patients can undergo a weight loss procedure performed by a well-trained and highly experienced doctor. We take extreme care to ensure that each patient that contacts us will receive the very best care possible.
