"One of the Best Medical Experiences I've Had in My Almost Fifty Years"

After  careful consideration, I chose the Tijunana Bariatric Center for several reasons and I am so glad that I did.  From the first time contacting Lanelle, the coordinator for the USA clients, to the selection of date of surgery, to the shuttle service that is employed, to the Tijuana Marriott Bonvoy and the majority of the staff, to the CERHospital's staff and nurses, to the Tijuana Bariatric Center's nutritionist {Linda Cardona}, anesthesiologist {Cabrera}, to the surgeon himself {Fer.Garcia}, to the follow up doc {Dra Valezco}; I am well satisfied and recommend this program. If you do your homework on the front end, you will be well pleased with this service; Tijuana Bariatric Center is one of the best medical experiences I've had in my almost fifty years.  Kudos to them!

From start to finish, this has already been a fantastic journey!  Lanelle was incredibly helpful & patient, and ultimately got me set up for a successful surgery.  My stay at CER was absolutely amazing, beautiful facility and friendly staff.  Transportation was top notch, Fransisco and team are very flexible and professional! At one month post surgery, I'm feeling great! I haven't had any pain, discomfort,  complications, or struggles at all. Highly recommend Dr Garcia and everyone at TBC!!!

What Are My Options?

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

During gastric sleeve surgery, nearly 85 percent of your stomach is removed. The sleeve-shaped portion that remains greatly reduces the amount of food you can consume and promotes dramatic weight loss. Patients who undergo this form of weight loss surgery get fuller faster, feel fuller longer, and lose weight at a rapid rate.

Learn More

Gastric Sleeve Plication Surgery

Gastric sleeve plication is designed to reduce the size of the stomach. During surgery, the doctor will create an internal fold to reduce the organ’s size, and skillfully suture the fold closed. Gastric sleeve plication is effective at helping patients lose weight and can be reversed if needed.

Learn More

Single Incision Laparoscopic Sleeve (SILS)

This minimally invasive surgery is performed by laparoscopy through only one incision. This procedure results in minimal visible scarring because this single incision is created inside the navel. Tijuana Bariatrics offers this weight loss surgery in Mexico for patients up to 39 BMI!  

Learn More

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery works by dividing your stomach into two separate pouches and then reconnecting the smaller pouch to the lower portion of your small intestine. Gastric bypass surgery creates a smaller stomach pouch that holds only one cup of food, you will be restricted in how much you are able to eat.

Learn More

"Mini" Gastric Bypass Surgery

Similar to gastric bypass, a mini gastric bypass will help you consume less food and 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 or processed within your system prior to exiting your body.

Learn More

Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery uses minimally invasive techniques to access the abdominal cavity through very small incisions. Compared to traditional techniques, laparoscopic surgery reduces recovery time, minimizes post-operative discomfort, and reduces your risk of developing complications. 

Learn More

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 and you can feel fuller for longer.

Learn More

Duodenal Switch Surgery

Duodenal switch surgery has proven to be one of the most effective forms of bariatric surgery available. During surgery, the small intestine is rearranged to differentiate the flow of food from the flow of stomach bile and pancreatic juices. This restricts your digested caloric intake. 

Learn More

Bariatric Surgery Revision

If gastric bypass or another bariatric surgery was successful initially, but over time you have not reached your goal weight, you may be an ideal candidate for revision surgery. Revision surgery can correct your surgical complications and improve your weight loss results.

Patient Education: More Information about Our Services

High-BMI Bariatric Surgery

In some cases, a patient with a very high BMI may not be eligible for weight-loss surgery. Some surgeons may not be willing to operate until significant weight is lost, which can be difficult (if not impossible) for patients. Fortunately, we can often approve surgical candidates with very high BMIs.

Learn More

Low-cost Bariatric Surgery

With most bariatric surgeries costing tens of thousands of dollars in the U.S., even some patients in great need simply cannot afford a bariatric operation. ​Fortunately, you can rely on Tijuana Bariactics to coordinate safe, cost-effective bariatric surgery at a fraction of the price you can expect to pay in the U.S.

Learn More

Preparing for Bariatric Surgery

Successful weight loss after bariatric surgery begins well before the procedure. In addition to eating well and becoming more active, you will be provided with pre-operative instructions to make sure you understand special items you will need to have on hand, such as pureed foods.

Learn More

Malabsorptive and Restrictive Surgeries

Bariatric surgeries promote weight loss through restriction or malabsorption, or by combining the two techniques. Restrictive surgeries permanently or temporarily reduce the size of the stomach while malabsorptive surgeries modify the gastrointestinal tract so the body absorbs fewer calories.
