“Dr. Gutierrez was amazing and I’m so happy I went with him! And all the doctors and nurses were awesome! I’m glad I didn’t let people (family) scare me out of doing this! And I’m glad I had my mom by my side the whole time. I’ve already encouraged my sister and a friend to use MBC with my same surgeon, Dr. Gutierrez because I’m so happy with my journey! ”

Madison – Gastric Sleeve Surgery, September 2017

It was the best decision of my life to have the gastric sleeve. I chose Mexico Bariatric Center because of all the rave reviews I had heard from my friends and clients. The staff was so friendly and my husband and I had an awesome experience while we were there! I stand as a hairdresser all day so losing the weight, for me, meant feeling better at work and then having the energy to come home and play with my 2 children!

I was sleeved through MBC in August of 2019, and my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner! My surgeon Dr. Gutierrez was wonderful, the staff was attentive, and the entire experience was positive.

Dr. Gutierrez changed my life and I’m forever grateful for him and the staff at MBC. Dr. Gutierrez and his staff treated me like family. His bedside manner was very reassuring. The anesthesiologist put my mind at ease as he could see I was a nervous wreck. We even joked around right before he gave me “the juice”! I’m only 2 months out but my gut is shrinking! If you have an upcoming surgery scheduled and you’re worrying let me tell you, I was worried too but I’m just so thankful I went through with it.

Lisa I, Gastric Sleeve

I had gastric sleeve surgery with Dr. Gutierrez in January 2022, and it was the best surgical experience I have ever had!!! I have had many surgeries in the states and can honestly say I was more impressed by the level of care I received at Mexico Bariatric Center than I have ever been by one of the hospitals in the United States!! I have had no complications and feel amazing!

Pam Meier – Gastric Sleeve Surgery, June 2020

I had gastric sleeve surgery two weeks ago with Dr. Gutierrez! Getting along great!!! All precautions are taken for cleaning and disinfecting!! Thank you MBC staff, nurses, and doctors!!

I would just like to let those watching the live webinar that there is such much information on the MBC website—pre-op diet, post-op diet, vitamins.. print that information off, highlight really important stuff and study it!! Watch as many webinars prior to surgery. I learned something new each time I watched!! Best wishes to everyone!!
