Has anyone had surgery with Dr. Alvarez?



Recommended Posts

I'm currently looking into surgery with Dr. Alvarez instead of Dr. Kelly

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with him?

He's more expensive but I like that he has state of the art equipment such as the stapling tool

and I like that the sleeve is the only procedure he does

I also like his surgery time

Just looking for some insight from people who have been there before me

Thank you in advanced

I had my vsg surgery with Dr. Guillermo Alverez this past April. Just hit my 6 months post op. I can't say enough about Dr. Alverez and his team. I will say that the surgery was the easy part for me, it has been the post op life that has been a struggle, especially with expectations. I had no issues and after the first 2 days, I didn't feel like I had surgery of any kind. I was up walking all over the neighborhood and then all over the Alamo/San Antonio area. Everything went exactly as I was told, no surprises.

I still wouldn't change my decision.

If you have any questions feel free to post or send a message.

Thank you so much for sharing your story. I would love Dr. A to be my surgeon. Do they offer any financing? I am waiting to hear back from Susan.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
