About Dr. Luis Pasten

Dr. Luis Pasten graduated with a Doctoral degree from the University of Guadalajara, one of the most prestigious medical schools in the nation of Mexico. Since 2012, bariatric surgery has been not only his profession, but his passion. Through the course of performing approximately 3,000 bariatric surgery procedures, he has remained true to a singular vision: to help his patients improve their quality of life by overcoming obesity.

In addition to performing bariatric surgery, Dr. Pasten is an accomplished general and trauma surgeon, having worked at the General Hospital in Tijuana. He served a residency of general surgery at the hospital from March 2010 to March 2014 and is certified by the Mexican Council of General Surgery. He is also accredited in the Specialty in General Surgery

Dr. Pasten is committed to advancing in his field through regular continual education in ambulatory and laparoscopic surgery. He is an active member of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). He has a particular interest in hiatal hernia repair surgery; indeed, this was the topic of his thesis, which was published in a well-known professional journal in Mexico.

In his professional and personal life, Dr. Pasten believes in treating others with dignity, respect, courtesy, and compassion. As a bariatric surgeon, this is reflected in how he interacts with patients, as he takes time to answer their questions, address their concerns, and listen attentively to their stories, fears, and goals. As a human being, this is reflected in his charitable efforts, such as his contributions as a volunteer for the Mexican Red Cross.

We are truly thrilled to add a bariatric surgeon of Dr. Pasten’s personal and professional caliber to the Tijuana Bariatrics team. We look forward to working with him for many years to come.
