About Gastric Sleeve Procedure:

Sleeve gastrectomy, otherwise known as the gastric sleeve is a restrictive weight loss procedure. Gastric sleeve is performed by removing as much as 85% of a patient’s stomach, leaving 3.5 to 4 oz. stomach capacity behind. Many surgeons prefer gastric sleeve to gastric banding and gastric bypass for a few simple reasons.

Reasons Gastric Sleeve is Superior

  • Low complication rates similar to gastric bypass. While a recent study reports 33% of gastric banding patients will revise their surgery.
  • High Expected Weight Loss, similar to Gastric Bypass.

Recent Bariatric Surgery Testimonial: March 26th, 2013

Hi [Mexico Bariatric Center],

I just wanted to let you know that everything went really well with the surgery. It was so much easier than I expected, and it was a great experience. Dr. Diaz is the best. He was so attentive and explained everything before, during, and after. I did not see anyone else’s doctor come to check on them nearly as much as Dr. Diaz checked on his patients. Awesome!

All went really smoothly and I am feeling great. Thanks for all your help!
