Alberta Obesity Statistics 2012

As contributing factors such as fast food, sedentary lifestyle, sedentary work, environment, and the distraction of social media grab ahold of Canadian residents, the obesity rates are reaching alarming levels. Being obese is a life-threatening ordeal that can lead to diabetes, cancers, Alzheimer’s disease, sleep apnea, and other obesity-related comorbidities.

The purpose of our hosting these seminars is to spread awareness of an affordable option for those struggling with obesity. Bariatric surgery in Tijuana cost is extremely low when compared to those in Canada. Another factor that can be an issue is the wait time to get approved for surgery. Our process is much faster, making the option of surgery a reality within less time.

Why choose us? The surgeons with Mexico Bariatric Center are specialized experts in bariatric surgery, focusing a limited number of procedures performed per day to limit complications. Because of this, Mexico Bariatric Center has maintained a complication rate below 0.5%.
