Has anyone used Dr. Ramos Kelly at International Metabolic Bariatric Center

Recommended Posts

I have been wanting to get the Gastric Sleeve surgery for a while, but my insurance doesn't cover it, and even with trying to save as much as I can. I'll be dead before I'm able to come up with the $25,000 cash to get it done here in the states. I have been too scared to consider getting it done elsewhere, but I have come to the realization that this is going to be my only option.
I have been trying to research, but with all the different options out there, and stories of bait and switches, I'm more confused then ever. I have read good reviews for Dr. Ramos Kelly, but most of them are older. I went to his website drramoskelly.com and saw that it is in fact for the International Metabolic Bariatric Center. Is this a reputable place? I really can't find any newer reviews on the doctor, or any reviews for IMBC.
I just want to be safe. I have 3 kids, I'm trying to get healthy for. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I have not heard of that doctor but I have heard of
It’s in Las Vegas and for cash patients I believe it’s under $7k. I did not go there as I have insurance that paid, but thought this might be one you can check out that’s more affordable and within the states.

Not sure if you ever got an answer, but Dr.Kelly did my sleeve over 10 years ago. No problems until this year and I have a hernia that now makes it so I need gastric bypass now. Going back to Mexico for it because my insurance won't pay.

      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.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
