Mexico Bariatric Center® is a family-owned, U.S. based corporation whose entire foundation is built on providing patient care. Our accredited bariatric center is located in Tijuana, Mexico, just a short drive from San Diego, California.
Our Mission is to provide safe and affordable weight loss surgery. On top of that, we emphasize patient care and support.
We work with the best board-certified bariatric surgeons and operate within a certified, state-of-the-art hospital facility.
We believe it’s more than just providing surgery. That’s why we include a nutritionist, medical expert, and an amazing support group as part of our all-inclusive package.
Every patient is assigned to one of our U.S. based Patient Coordinators so you don’t get passed from person to person. This provides personalized support and creates a real relationship which our most of our competitors don’t offer. Your Patient Coordinator will be by your side throughout the entire process.
2. Board-Certified Bariatric Surgeons
We work with the best bariatric surgeons in all of Mexico. Out of only nine board-certified surgeons in Tijuana, Mexico Bariatric Center has three of them working exclusively on our team. Most of our surgeons have trained in the U.S. and each of them have lower complication rates than what is recorded in the United States.
3. Daily Surgery Limit
Our Board-Certified Surgeons are limited to no more than 4 surgeries per day (in most cases only 3). Nearly all of our competitors, or any facility in general, do not place surgery limitations on their surgeons, which usually leads to higher complication rates for patients. This is one of the major reasons we have such a high success rate.
4. Experienced in All Types of Weight Loss Procedures
We always have your desired surgeon perform the entire surgery, which so many other providers don’t. Instead of an assistant, intern, or surgeon in training performing your procedure, we never put profit over your life and safety. MBC’s skilled team of surgeons are experienced in Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass, Duodenal Switch, Gastric Balloon and Revision of Failed Surgeries.
5. Certified Hospital with ICU
Mexico Bariatric Center works with only top-quality hospital facilities in Tijuana, Mexico. Hospital Mi Doctor is a full-service hospital (not clinic) that has an Intensive Care Unit (ICU). We use state-of-the-art operating rooms and medical grade equipment.
6. Easy 1-2-3 Scheduling for Surgery
You can quickly get approved and get scheduled for surgery as opposed to long weight times that can be experienced in other countries such as the United States and Canada.
7. Support Webinars
We host monthly Support Webinars to help all our clients prepare not just for their upcoming surgery, but long after. These webinars, hosted by our nutritionists, help our customers maximize their weight loss.
