Choosing a Bariatric Surgeon in Mexico

Patrizia Barrueco from Taqtik explains more about choosing a bariatric surgeon in Mexico, a favorite destination for international tourists seeking weight loss surgery.

Mexico has become one of the favorite destinations for international tourists seeking for weight-loss surgery. Bariatric procedures help you lose weight and lower the risk of medical problems associated with obesity. Bariatric surgery contributes to weight loss in two main ways:

  • Surgery is used to physically limit the amount of food the stomach can hold, which limits the number of calories you can eat.
  • Surgery is used to shorten or bypass part of the small intestine, which reduces the number of calories and nutrients the body absorbs.
Bariatric Surgeons in Mexico

There are many bariatric surgeons in Mexico, but not all are board certified by the CMCG (Consejo Mexicano de Cirugía General, Bariatrica y de Transplante), the CMCOEM (Colegio Mexicano de Cirigua para la Obesidad y Enfermedades Metabólicas), and the AMCE (Asociación Mexicana de Cirugía Endoscopica).

Being board certified by the CMCG, CMCOEM and AMCE is a must in Mexico, and there are also surgeons that go beyond and become double board certified in Mexico and in Europe, by IFSO (International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders).

Dr Sergio del Hoyo

Dr. Sergio del Hoyo is double board certified in Mexico and Europe. He received his BSC in Medicine in Guadalajara, Mexico, where he started an amazing career in the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders. Years later he completed an advanced course on Obesity and Metabolic Diseases in Strasbourg, France and regularly attends the World Congresses on Obesity.

He is an expert in laparoscopic gastric bypass, laparoscopic gastric sleeve, duodenal switch. He also treats constipation, gallbladder, haemorrhoids, appendicitis, gastritis, colitis, colon and hernia and is well known for the top-quality healthcare. His team of experts includes a nutriologist, endoscopist and anaesthesiologist, and they perform all of their interventions in world-class level hospitals in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit.

Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is one of the most cherished destinations in Mexico.  The sunsets at Los Mertos Pier, the cobblestone streets, Malecon, Zona Romantica for LGBT escapes, the Botanical Gardens, Whale Watching, and the famous church of our Lady of Guadaloupe are world-wide known by visitors from all around the world.
