Bariatric surgery, more commonly known as weight loss surgery, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to cure obesity. Using 3 to 5 tiny incisions (1 in case of the single incision) over the abdominal region, the best bariatric surgeon in Mexico performs the laparoscopic operation. By reducing the stomach size and altering the digestion process, a specialized surgeon operates bariatric and metabolic surgery with one goal in mind – to reduce extra pounds and reverse comorbidities. As excess weight drops, fat-fueled health problems like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, etc. are often improved or even cured long-term.

WebMD published in a 2019 study which states, “as many as 7 out of 10 people with type 2 diabetes can achieve long-term disease remission after undergoing bariatric surgery.
