Specializing in Bariatric Surgery for Patients Seeking Medical Weight Loss

Patients with a body mass index (BMI) over 30 are at a higher risk of developing medical health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and sleep apnea. Despite this increased risk, the struggle to lose weight and keep if off can be a long and frustrating experience for many individuals. Fortunately, the doctors networking with the Tijuana Bariatric Center provide bariatric surgery and nutrition counseling to promote medical weight loss for patients who undergo treatment in Tijuana, Mexico. We understand that choosing a bariatric surgeon is an important decision and can provide all the information you need to move forward.

What is Medical Weight Loss?

During a medical weight loss program, the physician will help guide the patient through the various steps of treatment, assisting in the management of diet, fitness, and other healthy lifestyle behaviors.

By combining surgical and non-surgical practices, the two options can work hand-in-hand to deliver the most transformative, long-lasting results.

While some practitioners and medical facilities focus primarily on non-surgical weight loss solutions, the doctors within our network specialize in surgical techniques.

How Bariatric Surgery Can Improve Your Health

Severe obesity is a serious stage of the condition that has both mental and physical effects. Obese patients often experience a reduced quality of life and major health complications that can develop into heart disease or depression, among other concerns, and even result in death. During bariatric surgery, the gastrointestinal tract is altered, which causes physiologic changes in the body. By combining surgical intervention with a structured treatment plan, patients can achieve long-term success and improved longevity. For the right patients, achieving a healthier weight can also also improve fertility and improve their chances of becoming pregnant.

Bariatric Surgery Options

Depending on the overall health of the patient, their goals, and the recommendations of their doctor, patients will have various options for surgery. Some of the of the most common and effective types of bariatric surgery include:

Before and after gastric sleeve surgery

Gastric Sleeve

Consists of the removal of up to 85 percent of the stomach, resulting in reduced hunger

What is Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Single Incision Laparoscopic Sleeve:
A less invasive technique that removes a portion of the stomach to promote weight loss by reducing hunger
Gastric Sleeve Plication:
By creating an internal fold in the stomach, the stomach size is restricted, but the procedure does not alter nutrient absorption
Gastric Bypass:
Associated with substantial weight loss due to the combined restrictive and malabsorptive effects
Mini Gastric Bypass:
A safe and effective modified version of a traditional bypass procedure
Duodenal Switch:
Combines restrictive and malabsorptive techniques, as well as rearranges the patients’ digestive tract

Live a Longer and Healthier Life

Morbid obesity and excessive weight can make it extremely difficult to participate in physical activities and comfortably complete everyday tasks. An inability to lose excess weight can result in mental anguish and frustration, and more concerning, result in serious medical conditions.

For many overweight patients, the cost of surgery is simply too expensive, leaving them with few options. At Tijuana Bariatric Center, we can help patients achieve amazing results with affordable bariatric surgery procedures.
