Edmonton, Alberta Bariatric Surgery Seminar – 2018


Seminar Information

Mexico Bariatric Center’s informational seminar in Edmonton, Alberta, offered medical tourists thinking about weight loss surgery. The workshop was a complete, informative, and open-forum discussion of everything related to bariatric surgery. Additionally, the face of Mexico Bariatric Center®, Ron Elli, Ph.D., was accompanied by top bariatric surgeon Alejandro Gutierrez, M.D. Dr. Gutierrez not only dives into types of bariatric procedures but also answered all questions for those who attended.

Similar to the 2016 Edmonton bariatric surgery seminar, the overall outcome of the 2018 Canada bariatric surgery seminar was a great success. The purpose of this meeting was to bring former patients together with men and women considering bariatric surgery in Tijuana, Mexico, for a one-of-a-kind educational event.

The presentation covered bariatric surgery options, the benefits of surgery, information about MBC, cosmetic surgery options, a Q&A session, and more. After completing their presentation, Ron Elli and Dr. Gutierrez invited former patients to stand up and share their inspirational success stories throughout their weight loss journey.

It’s not just about Mexico Bariatric Center, it’s also about former patients helping individuals by sharing their experiences, story, and success for a better understanding of what to expect.

Special promotional offers provided by MBC at the seminar were:

  • $15 Amazon Gift Cards for 35 select attendees
  • Random drawing where one lucky winner received a large credit to the all-inclusive gastric sleeve surgery package with Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez
