“Exactly 1 yr today, I made one of the biggest but BEST decisions of my life. Some say I took the easy way out, but it’s been by far one of the hardest things mentally to deal with. Within the first month, I was off all my blood pressure and diabetes meds. I feel so much better! I believe without this surgery, I wouldn’t be pregnant today after being told I would never be able to have children. Now at a healthy 151lbs, we are expecting a healthy little boy! Thank you so much, MBC & Dr. Gutierrez! ”

“2.5 months can make a big difference! Finally broke down and got a smaller flight suit today and man, it felt so good. I was drowning in my old one. I’m no longer a nervous wreck about not making weight at my monthly base weigh-in. I just throw my gear on and hop on the scale! My energy levels are so much better and my confidence has gone up too. So thankful for Dr. Gutierrez and MBC for my new life!”

“So I have been sooooo nervous about posting, but why not. I had my surgery with Dr. Gutierrez in June 2020. I am 5’2 and was feeling the effects of being overweight so for my 34th birthday my dad called and told me to schedule my surgery, 3 weeks later (due to someone canceling so they only had that one opening) I was there during covid, traveled alone, but it was the best decision I ever made”

I’m so grateful to the team at MBC they were all so kind and professional, they make you feel comfortable and safe! The hospital was clean and also felt safe!

“I had the most amazing experience at MBC. From the lovely ladies that helped me over the phone to get scheduled, to the drivers, to the hotel to of course the nurses and doctors. I had Dr. Gutierrez do my sleeve surgery last year. Trust the process, listen to what they say and they will save your life.
Thank you all at MBC ❤”

“Dr. Gutierrez was the doctor who did my gastric bypass surgery. He did a great job and was very personable. I had the surgery July 13, 2019. The hospital was clean and the nurses were helpful. They kept up my pain med schedule and other meds too. They took good care of me. I am doing great six months later and no complications.”

“I cannot recommend Mexico Bariatric Center highly enough. It took me two years to finally decide to go ahead and have my surgery there and I so wish I hadn’t waited. They have everything down to a science there. The hospital is clean and recently renovated. My doctor, Dr. Guitterez was amazing. Had the best bedside manner. I can’t recommend this enough. My advice, if you’re on the fence about it, do it, don’t wait like I did.”
Jordan Bently, Gastric Sleeve Surgery

“Mini bypass done by Dr. Gutierrez 7/26/19. From my pickup in San Diego airport, surgery, hospital stay, recovery at Hilton to my return, everything was very well organized and professional. As a nurse, I did extensive research and I am only unhappy I didn’t go much sooner. Life-changing”

I had an amazing experience with MBC! The nurses and staff were so helpful and kind. Anytime I needed them, they were there. The drivers were professional and thoughtful. I will and have recommended MBC to friends and family!

8/16/2016 (Gastric Sleeve Patient) ★★★★★

I have spent 35 years struggling with my weight. I just wish I had been able to do this back then. Finally, the weight is coming off. I’m three months out and halfway to my goal weight. I’m able to do all the things I wanted to do before, like zip lines, paddle boarding, and hiking, but I was too embarrassed or too heavy for the equipment. I’m never going to be held back by my weight again. Thank you MBC.

No regrets! My husband and I both had the sleeve done with Dr. Gutierrez. We stayed on liquids afterward for a month just to give our bodies more time to heal with no pressure on the pouch. Just be sure and follow the diet guidelines.

Renee H A (Dec 2020)  ★★★★★

It has been 6 months today since I had my mini bypass. I want to say thanks to Dr. Gutierrez for doing my surgery and helping me have a healthy life. I have had a very very rough 6 months but I am officially down 95 pounds as of this morning. I also want to say thank you to Karla Ochoa for being so supportive and loving while I was in the hospital back in June. You are an amazing woman and I hope to see you again soon when my husband finally gets up with the courage to come. I also want to say thank you to my AMAZING husband for helping me every step of the way and ALL the days of being sick and just out of it. And all my new friends that I made while at MBC and on here. I have had a very rough 6 months but I have to say in the beginning I regretted doing the surgery but I had a lot of setbacks but now I have to say yes yes yes I would do it all over again. I am able to live to watch my kids grow up and that means the world to me. I am able to be married to my best friend for many many more years and that means absolutely everything to me. So thanks MBC for making this all possible!
