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.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
