CDC WARNING: Health Alert: Tijuana (Mexico), Reports of Antibiotic-resistant Infections Following Surgery at Grand View Hospital with Dr. Almanza

Recommended Posts

We were just notified that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the US embassy in Mexico have issued an urgent health alert.

The U.S. Consulate General advises U.S. citizens of several cases since August 2018 of antibiotic-resistant infections affecting U.S. patients following surgery at the Grand View Hospital in Tijuana. U.S. citizens considering seeking medical care overseas should carefully review the risks associated with Medical Tourism provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

The Grand View Hospital is owned and operated by none other than Dr. Mario Almanza. Weight Loss Agents is their booking agent.

There's already a class action lawsuit against Dr. Almanza and Weight Loss Agents. They're personally responsible for many patient deaths or major medical complications. It's surgeons and companies like these that give all Mexican surgeons a bad name.

We urge BariatricPal members to stay far away from any of the above-mentioned individuals, companies or facilities.
