I had the Gastric Sleeve surgery performed by Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez at Mexico Bariatric Center in February. The staff and doctors followed all protocols set for me which made my US physicians and myself feel safe. My surgery went smoothly and without any complications. I have lost 78 pounds and am still progressing. I feel great and healthy. Dr. G is an amazing surgeon; my gastroenterologist commented that my Sleeve looked like an ARTIST had done it!!! I’m blessed to have had the opportunity to have my surgery and I’m so thankful.
My experience with MBC was excellent. The staff and Dr. Gutierrez were caring and skilled and made me feel very comfortable. I have had no complications and I’m feeling great, down 90lbs in less than 7 months! I battled with the decision for 5 years! Why?!? I turn 36 this week and feeling fabulous! MBC helped me take my life back! I wish I would have made the decision sooner!
I had VSG surgery with Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez. I had a fantastic experience! He met with me before surgery, spent time answering what little questions I had and took time to reminisce with me about my time coming to TJ back in the 1990's and how much it had changed! He is very kind and relaxed. My surgery went extremely well and I'm happy to report that between pre-op and today I've lost 115 lbs which is so much better than my highest weight of 256 lbs!!! Thank you Dr. Gutierrez and MBC for the gift of a better life!
