Picking a bariatric surgeon in Mexico is tough in today’s market with so many doctors offering bariatric services. There are some general qualifications you should look for, like a surgeon who is board-certified, necessary surgical experience and education.

Other factors to consider when looking for a qualified bariatric surgeon is a surgeon you feel comfortable with and the doctor who speaks basic English. Other factors you should consider are specialists who are dedicated tirelessly to the eradication of obesity.

Research has suggested that a doctor’s daily surgery count has an effect on surgical outcomes and success. High surgical outcomes are why Mexico Bariatric Center offers top bariatric surgeons who choose to limit their routine operations to reduce surgical complications and increase patient outcomes.

It’s important to research your prospective surgeon, discovering their latest reviews from patients, qualifications, surgical techniques, and more. The more research and reviews you gather the better-informed decision you can make on picking a surgeon.

Some weight loss surgeons who are new to medical tourism in Mexico will offer more affordable packages to entice patients to choose them over a more established bariatric surgeon. Don’t fall into a trap; there is a reason so many new, and unheard of surgeons, are offering surgery for so cheap.

The right choice is to choose a company like Mexico Bariatric Center, who has been in business for years and has helped thousands of individuals achieve success.

In Mexico, the key driver for bariatric services is the sleeve gastrectomy (gastric sleeve) procedure. Choosing a competent gastric sleeve surgeon, you should find a surgeon who has performed the surgery laparoscopic under the guidance of a renowned surgeon. This allows the surgeon to experience the proper reactions during surgery that isn’t going as planned.

When you’re choosing a metabolic or bariatric surgeon in Mexico, there are important considerations that are often overlooked. Remember, with Mexico Bariatric Surgery; you are choosing more than a surgeon; you’re selecting a hospital facility & support team: a doctor’s team, before and after care support and hospital staff.

Surgeon’s Team

It’s important to consider the surgeon’s anesthesiologist, instrumentation and support staff. These members should be experienced with bariatric patients, helping to minimize surgical risks and to increase postoperative patient care. Mexico Bariatric Center team of surgeons are using leading, brand-name instrumentation and equipment, such as Ethicon (made by Johnson & Johnson) and Covidien (made by Medtronic).

Research the Facility

Depending on which you choose, a clinic or a hospital, it’s important they have a full Intensive Care Unit, a medical necessity in case something arises. Most of the time, and especially for gastric sleeve procedure, the surgery will go smoothly. But for more complicated procedures, including fixing a failed Lap-Band, the operation be problematic due to scar tissue.

Hospital Staff

Lastly, hospital staff should be part of your consideration. The criteria to look for is the hospitals’ dedication and experience with metabolic and bariatric (weight reduction) surgery. Staff dedicated to bariatrics mean that everybody from the nurses to administration will be thoroughly knowledgeable about all the topics and questions that can arise from patients.

Obesity is linked to diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, heart disease, sleep apnea, cancers, getting pregnant & pregnancy problems and chronic diseases (like Hodgkin’s lymphoma). It may also cause emotional health issues and the ability to be physically active. The obesity epidemic can be contributed to the modern environments, such as the food we eat, lack of exercise, stress, inadequate sleep and weight-gaining drugs. Lifestyle modification, including diet & exercise, and Pharmacotherapy are ways to lose weight, but the bariatric procedure is the most effective long-term treatment for obesity. Non-surgical dietary weight loss and exercise are NOT an effective long-term option. Read More: Set-Point Theory
