Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Mexico



Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm new to this forum but would like to receive some feedback from those that have had gastric sleeve surgery in Mexico. I have been thinking about having this surgery and researching the surgeons in Mexico for quite a while now. I believe that I have narrowed my search to 3 doctors who specialize in this type for procedure. Their names are Dr. Juan Corvala who based on my research is one of the leading doctors worldwide in bariatric surgery. Dr. jaime Ponce de leon who also has performed extensive surgeries and Dr. Armando Joya..only negative information that I could locate on him was that one of his patients didn't believe that he did a good job at pain management. I couldn't find any additional negative feedback on him. Is anyone in the forum familiar with the work of these doctors are know anyone who have had any type of bariatric surgery with any of these doctors? Thanks.

I had VSG done in Mexicali Mexico and it was the best experience. The hospital was a top notch facility, even better than some north American hospitals. I got such attentive care from both the doctors and nurses. I had a doctor visit every day, sometimes twice a day. I chose this location because its a full fledged and equipped hospital in case there were any complications. Most of the nurses spoke English but I used my cell phone and a translator which worked well and all in all I know I got better care and attention there than if I were in Canada or the USA. They go OUT OF THEIR WAY to provide the best client service. I would highly recommend where I went. They assign a coordinator for you to help you organize everything. You get picked up from the airport in San Diego, you drive to Mexicali and then they drive you back after 3 days. If you have any questions about them feel free to ask. I posted the hospital below.
