Surgical Offerings
It is imperative that one chooses a highly experienced team of surgeons when deciding to pursue bariatric surgery. At Surgery for Obesity Group we understand that and have a dedicated practice to weight-loss surgery. Our team has performed over 6,000 procedures and is one of the most experienced teams in Latin America. Amongst our specialties, our patients can receive access to the following bariatric surgery options:

 
  • Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass - One of the most common and recommended bariatric surgery options. Well-suited for medical tourism.

  • Sleeve Gastrectomy - A restrictive procedure that removes approximately 80% of the stomach. Unlike gastric bypass, this is not reversible.

  • Duodenal Switch - Also known as BPD-DS. A restrictive and malabsorptive procedure.

  • Intragastric Balloon - Short term weight loss approach. Balloon needs to be removed after 6 months.

  • Adjustable Gastric Band - Popular operation, although not as effective as other bariatric surgery types.

  • Biliopancreatic Diversion - Sometimes combined with the Duodenal Switch.
