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.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
