Bariatric Technology We Use

Here at Mexico Bariatric Center, we believe in using only the newest and best bariatric technologies for patients. Even though our prices are consistently the lowest, we strive to buy the same supplies and techniques doctors in the U.S. use.

Patients can rest assured that MBC uses the latest technologies that the bariatric and metabolic community agrees are required to perform a safe procedure.

Surgical Stapling Products

For the gastric sleeve, below are the staples and sutures that we use in laparoscopic procedures:

  • COVIDIEN, such as Endo GIA™ Ultra Universal Stapler
  • ECHELON FLEX™ ENDOPATH® Stapler and ENDO GIA ULTRA™ Universal Stapler

The ECHELON FLEX™ ENDOPATH® Stapler enables our surgeons to:

Have optimal staple formation, even in thick tissue

  • An enhanced system-wide compression aids in proper staple formation, which is necessary to achieve a leak-resistant and hemostatic staple line
  • The use of compression before firing gently exudes fluid from the targeted tissue before firing
  • And utilizing alignment during firing ensures a uniform distance between the anvil and cartridge surfaces during firing

Stay focused on the surgical field without interruption

  • Allowing a natural, one-handed operation enables the surgeon to focus on the line of the transaction and place the anvil exactly where needed
  • It facilitates tissue positioning/manipulation with its wide proximal to distal jaw aperture
  • And it allows the surgeon to rotate, articulate and fire with one hand
