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.
