Dr. Luis Cervantes had a patient death about three weeks ago at Hospital Guadalajara in Tijuana. I suggest looking for another surgeon. There are quite a few good ones in Mexico! No need to put your life at risk.

May I ask what your source of information is. I researched this doctor and facility and the company associated with them for a year. I couldnt find anything wrong. Please share your info with me.

Thanks

I'm in Tijuana at the moment and I'm normally here every month. The TJ Bariatric surgeons and nurses know one another and nothing happens without the entire town knowing about it, especially a patient fatality. I just called two surgeons to double confirm and I'm 100% this occurred. All I know is the patient passed away. I don't have details about the complication(s) that occurred.

I talked with Eduardo Zompa and the Hospital Guadalajara and they both said that there have been no deaths occurring at their facilities or with Dr. Luis Cervantes who does Bariatric surgery through Mexico Bariatrics.

You mean Eduardo Zonta. He's currently Dr. Luis Cervantes's personal assistant.

Eduardo Zonta used to be Dr. Carlos Altamirano's personal assistant.

It's a small world......Dr. Cervantes used to be Dr. Altamirano's surgical assistant.

Hospital Guadalajara is covering up this death as they've covered up Dr. Altamirano's patient deaths at the same facility.

Please don't select your bariatric surgeon based on price. I suggest doing more research before selecting your surgeon.

I was really wanting to go with him, but the thing that turned me off is he does not speak English. That really makes me nervous for some reason.

If you look at it another way, maybe HE'S the one nervous because we dont speak Spanish !!

Dr. Cervantes is an excellent, caring doctor and he has his own Facebook page as he is no longer associated with Mexico Bariatrics. I don't regret my decision for even one moment. I just regret not doing it earlier. Let me tell you something tho. Please, when asking other surgeons or asking advice about other surgeons be aware that even on this forum, the doctors smack talk each other. One doctor on this forum told me that the hospital I was going to and Dr. Cervantes had just had a death on the table. I heavily investigated it and found it to be a lie. The smack talker doctor that told me that also told me not to have surgery based on price. I researched for a year and a half before deciding on Dr. Cervantes, and I did a lot of praying. I am so happy with my choice. Dr Cervantes has a great translator and a great team.

I agree 1000%. Dr Luis Cervantes is simply the best. My Surgery was May 8th 2017. I’m down 50 lbs and kept it off. I love that doc and would do it all over again. He is wonderful !!!

As a nurse, who has practiced 33 years, If this, Dr who I am scheduled to have surgery with on June 13th, has only had 1 death then I am all the more comfortable. Thats a small percentage of the amount of surgeries he performs. Also, he is caring for 100% obese patients who are unhealthy for the most part when they walk in the door. Things are going to happen. I pray for Gods grace and mercy for my scheduled surgery coming up but 1 death does not constitute changing doctors..

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
