Who was your Mexico Surgeon?



Recommended Posts

7500-9200 in Canadian dollars , but the OCC is one of the more expensive places. I do believe many people had great Success with Dr.illan , I think... at a much lower cost like 5500 Canadian. Just ask around in here, but make sure you pick a well known place, you need to have heard from lots of others, not 2 or 3...(I'm my books anyway)

good Luck!

Thanks veryyyy much. It seems like these Dr's are constantly moving around. I called Trinity Medical. Nice guy. Great price. He said they just hired a new surgeon. Younger guy but has done over 1000 sleeves. Dr Luis Pasten. Ever heard of him?

I haven't, to be honest I went with the OCC, cause they were on Operha , Dr.oz and another day time news show.... I would stick to there or with Dr.illan at oasis I think. Why go to the unknown.

I used Dr Elias Ortiz through ALM. My surgery was March 27 and I doing really well! I do wish I had taken 3 weeks off because I do a pretty physically demanding job and I was EXHAUSTED when I got home. As long as you can make peace with "Mexico time" and how everything takes a little longer down there- you'll be fine! (I used to live in Hawaii and Island time is a very real thing-it's similar to that)

Dr. Alvarez for me. I think he's the most expensive option for the Mexican surgeons, but he knows his stuff. He only does the VSG and I think he's done over 10,500 now.

I'm using Dr. Gerardo Garcia Alvarez at Bariatric Mexico in Cabo.. I chose them because of my personal relationships locally with several of his patients.. good luck!

Dr. Ponce de Leon... very good experience.

I scheduled my surgery with Dr. Ponce July 10th. I am very nervous. Could you share your experience? Thank you!

I used Dr. Illian and his team. I had surgery April 24th. The following days were wonderful due to the valets and their constant attention to my and my companions needs.

I also used Dr. Jalil Illan and had a great experience. I am 3 1/2 months post op and have lost 50 lbs. The hospital rooms were modern and the nurses were friendly and attentive. The valets with BariatricPal are wonderful. I am going back next month as my sister's companion. Believe me when I say that I wouldn't let her do this unless I had 100% confidence in Dr. Illan. She is my baby sister, best friend and a mother to two small children.
