Bariatric Surgery Seminar in Fort Mcmurray, Alberta – 2018


Mexico Bariatric Center (MBC) held a bariatric surgery seminar in Fort McMurray to allow former patients and individuals considering weight loss surgery in Tijuana a unique experience to all come together in one place.

Ron Elli, Ph.D. (Founder and CEO of MBC) spoke to the guests about a large array of topics including bariatric surgery and the services that MBC provides followed by an open Q&A session.

Seminar Information

It is not every day that patients get to meet one another in person after surgery or share their testimonials and this event provided just that opportunity. One after the other, former patients stood up front and proudly shared their success stories and about life after bariatric surgery.

Alongside the valuable experience and information, MBC also provided:

  • $15 Amazon Gift Cards for select attendees to do some online shopping, our treat.
  • A large discount off of the gastric sleeve surgery package with Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez for one randomly selected winner who attended the event.
