WORLD CLASS, AFFORDABLE BARIATRIC SURGERY

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

This advanced form of bariatric surgery at our Tijuana facility offers a great surgical management for morbid obesity. During gastric sleeve surgery, nearly 85 percent of your stomach is removed. The portion of your stomach that remains will take the shape of a sleeve, reducing the amount of food you are able to consume. Patients who undergo this form of weight loss surgery get fuller faster, feel fuller longer, and lose weight at a rapid rate.

Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery

Gastric sleeve plication surgery is designed to reduce the size of the stomach so the amount of food you will be able to consume is limited. During surgery, Dr. Garcia, Dr. Vazquez, or Dr. Pasten will create an internal fold within the stomach, to reduce the organ’s size, and skillfully suture the fold closed. This procedure is effective at helping patients lose weight and can be revised for amplified results.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

If regular diet and exercise haven’t proven to be effective in your attempts to lose weight and you continue to struggle with obesity, then gastric bypass surgery may be right for you. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery works by dividing your stomach into two separate pouches, an upper pouch and lower pouch, and then reconnecting the smaller pouch to the lower portion of your small intestine. By creating a smaller stomach pouch that holds only one cup of food, you will be restricted in terms of how much you are able to eat. By limiting your food ingestion and caloric intake intake you have both the malabsorptive and restrictive component of weight loss. With both restrictive and malabsorptive components, you can lose a significant amount of weight in a relatively short amount of time. Most patients who undergo gastric bypass surgery lose 10 to 20 pounds every month for a year. Most patients who undergo gastric bypass surgery lose 10 to 20 pounds every month for a year.

"Mini" Gastric Bypass Surgery

This weight loss procedure requires that your stomach be divided into two pouches, an upper pouch and lower pouch. The lower portion of your small intestine is fused to the smaller upper pouch. The creation of a smaller stomach pouch, which holds less than a cup of food, will help you to get fuller more quickly and feel fuller longer and you will ultimately lose weight faster. By surgically resecting the small, upper pouch to the upper portion of your bowels, food will not be completely broken down, absorbed, or processed within your system prior to exiting your body. Much like the standard Gastric Bypass procedure, the mini-bypass is considered both a restrictive and malabsorbtion procedure giving you the ability to obtain significant weight loss in a relatively short amount of time.

LAP-BAND® Surgery

The LAP-BAND® system was the first adjustable gastric banding device to be approved by the FDA. The system works by reducing your stomach’s capacity. With this restrictive procedure, the amount of food and drink you are able to consume at any given time is limited; you will feel fuller for longer, you won't eat as much, and you will end up losing a significant amount of weight. The LAP-BAND® system can be adjusted over time to more precisely fulfill your needs and promote longer-lasting, optimal results. This form of bariatric surgery is not appropriate for everyone; during the review process, Dr. Fernando Garcia, Dr. David Vazquez, or Dr. Pasten will thoroughly evaluate your health and medical history to determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Duodenal Switch Surgery

Duodenal switch surgery has proven to be one of the most effective forms of bariatric surgery available to-date. This procedure helps patients quickly shed pounds because it is both a restrictive and malabsortive procedure. During duodenal switch surgery the small intestine is rearranged to differentiate the flow of food from the flow of stomach bile and pancreatic juices. By adjusting your small intestine, Dr. Garcia can restrict your digested caloric intake.

Bariatric Surgery Revision

If your bariatric surgery was successful initially, but over time you have noticed a significant decline in the amount of weight you are losing, you may be an ideal candidate for revision surgery. By performing revision surgery, Dr. Garcia, Dr. Vazquez, or Dr. Pasten can reshape your stomach, making it a more suitable portal for weight loss. Revision surgery can correct your surgical complications and improve your weight loss results.
