Our Four Stage Process:

1. Pre-Surgery

You will need to complete a thorough weight loss medical questionnaire which helps us ascertain if you are suitable for the surgery. You will also get a free consultation with your doctor.  Prior to the surgery you will also need to complete a psychological review to ensure you are mentally prepared and suitable for the procedure.

2. The Procedure

Your procedure will be completed by Dr. Juan Lopez Corvola, one of the top ten weight-loss surgeons in the world. He has performed more than 5,000 laparoscopic surgeries, of which 1,500 were gastric band surgeries. He currently is a staff member at Hospital Angeles, Tijuana. Dr. Corvola is supported by a team of doctors including a nutritional specialist.

3. After Care in the Hospital

After the procedure you will be treated as an in patient in a private hospital room. Additionally, your surgeon will check on you regularly to make sure that the procedure has gone as expected. You will also spend time with the nutritional specialists who will talk you through the dietary requirements and aftercare. You will be given full aftercare documentation before you are discharged from the hospital.
