Giving You Hope

Tijuana Bariatrics offer an array of weight loss treatment options at the bariatric surgery practice of Dr. Fernando Garcia, each designed to improve the health of patients who are morbidly obese. Depending on your specific needs and goals for treatment and your medical history, our qualified weight loss specialists, with recommendations from the surgeons, will help you decide the surgical option that is right for you. We offer:

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Also known as Roux-en-Y, this long-term weight loss treatment requires your stomach to be divided into two pouches, an upper pouch and a lower pouch. The Gastric Bypass surgery has both a restrictive and malabsorptive component to treatment. The small upper pouch is attached to a lower portion of your small intestine, diminishing nutritional and caloric intake as your food breaks down and is digested.

Single Incision Laparoscopic Sleeve (SILS) Surgery

Dr. Fernando Garcia's skill and use of modern technology enables him to perform the gastric sleeve surgery with just a single incision instead of the traditional sleeve gastrectomy that is done with 5 small incisions. This modern technique is called the Single Incision Laparoscopic Sleeve (SILS) . It is performed through the belly button therefore, it involves little scarring, faster recovery, and minimal pain coupled with excellent cosmetic results! Too many patients this is a very important factor that makes the difference when they choose the surgeon that fulfills their expectations.
