At our clinic located in Cancun, Mexico, your comfort, health, and safety is our top priority. Our surgeon has a wealth of experience performing several types of bariatric surgery, including gastric bypass and gastric banding surgery. However, the gastric sleeve surgery is by far the most common procedure performed by our staff.
The gastric sleeve surgery is the least invasive bariatric surgery option. Additionally, it has the highest success rate of all of the operations. The successfulness of gastric sleeve surgery relies on two key factors. First, the stomach is reduced up to 1/10th the size. As a result, the amount of food, and therefore, the amount of calories is significantly limited. Second, the part of the stomach that is responsible for producing the hunger hormone “ghrelin” is removed. Without ghrelin, the patient feels less hunger.
The patient is required to travel to our clinic in Cancun, Mexico, where they receive treatment in a state-of-the-art facility. Our highly trained surgical staff operates with the most modern equipment available. We offer specialized care and focus heavily on providing each patient with the individual attention they need.
