Dr. Juan Francisco Hidalgo in Puerto Vallarta

Recommended Posts

If you are considering surgery in Mexico, I would highly recommend Dr. Juan Francisco Hidalgo with the Weight Loss Team in Puerto Vallarta. I am 4 days post-op from VSG surgery and everything went so smoothly. The hospital, CBQ Riveria Nayarit is new, state of art, absolutely spotless, beautiful, much nicer than any hospital I have ever seen in the U.S. I was actually sitting on a balcony watching the sunset over the ocean the evening after my surgery.Gerald, the Executive Patient Support Manager is wonderful! I only stayed in the hospital one night, but most patients stay two. The next two days, I enjoyed a beautiful resort with my family before traveling home. I was in Puerto Vallarto for 4 nights, but most stay 5. I feel like I had a surgery while on a tropical vacation!

I have had absolutely no nausea or refulx, and very minimal pain. I really wouldn't even call it pain, just a little soreness. I'm not sure why my surgery seems to have been so much easier than my friends' surgeries in other places, but it truly was, and Dr. Hidalgo has a few protocols post and pre surgery that were different than my friends' surgeries. He only does 1 or 2 surgeries a day.

Please feel free to message me if you have questions.

Hey Rene,

I am considering him right now. Do you know of anyone else who was his patient? And may I ask why you chose CMQ?

It's a very nerve wrecking process as I'm sure you know.

No, I'm sorry I don't know anyone else who was his patient. Dr. Hidalgo does surgeries at a few different hospitals in PVR, and CMQ seemed to have the best reputation. Good luck, and yes, I know it is a very nerve wrecking process and you want to make sure you make the right decison. I am over a year out now and have had no problems. I'm 3 pounds away from my orginal goal, but I seem to be holding steading at this weight, and that's okay with me. Wishing you the best!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
