Guide to Finding a Trusted Weight Loss Surgeon in Mexico

The information we gather from this site comes from a lot of different resources. We scour the weight loss surgery forums for trusted patient reviews, testimonials, and input on surgeons. We cover boilerplate information from a doctor’s and sometimes hospitals’ website. We read reviews from patients on sites like ObesityHelp and the like.

Focusing solely on price is a bad choice for most patients. A surgeon performing more than four weight loss surgeries per day is too taxing to be sustainable. This is why we recommend patients find surgeons who work out of full-service hospitals, surgeons who perform their operations (rather than ghost surgeons), and surgeons who have better hand/eye coordination for endoscopic proficiency.

Edited by Medical Tourism Resource Guide: Complication rates are based on data, whenever available, about the doctor’s surgical complication rates for weight-loss surgery. When the icon is shown, the surgeon’s complication rate is deemed excellent.
