Guide to Mexican Weight Loss Surgery

The information we gathered for this site comes from a lot of different resources. We scour the weight loss surgery forums for patient reviews, testimonials and input on surgeons. We cover boilerplate information from a surgeon’s and sometimes hospitals’ website. We read reviews from patients on sites like ObesityHelp and the like. After all the content is gathered, we provide a detailed review of the weight loss surgeon with a relative (star) rating.

Focusing solely on price is a bad choice for must patients. A surgeon performing more than four weight loss surgeries per day is generally too taxing to be sustainable. This is why we recommend patients find surgeons who work out of full-service hospitals, surgeons who perform their own surgeries (rather than ghost surgeons), and surgeons who have better hand/eye coordination for endoscopic proficiency.
