The Duodenal Switch is one of the most complex weight-loss procedures, only a very few surgeons are qualified to do this operation correctly. It’s complexity is due to the important malabsorptive and metabolic aspects of this procedure. Duodenal Switch patients in Mexico eat in a relatively normal and free manner meanwhile their metabolism behaves like the one of a thin person. The Duodenal Switch surgery has the best long term results for losing weight and keeping it off.
This weight loss procedure known as gastric bypass or Rouxen-Y is considered the Gold standard of weight loss bariatric proceduyres, and is one of the very few mothods proven to result in long-term weight loss. This bariatric procedure reduces the size of the stomach to alter a patient’s daily caloric intake and therefore help them achieve weight loss Dr. Gilberto Ungson and Dr. Rodolfo Wilhelmy, close friends and colleagues of the late Dr. Alberto Aceves, are experienced certified Mexicali / Mexico bariatric surgeons who have performed thousands of these procedures.
VSG/Gastric Sleeve Surgery, also known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is a recent and innovative procedure that restricts food intake in order to facilitate weight loss. At Mexicali Bariatric Center in Mexico, weight loss surgeons Dr. Esquerra and Dr. Rodolfo Wilhelmy perform this procedure laparoscopically, which removes approximately 85 percent of the stomach, leaving behaind a small tube or “sleeve” limiting food intake, thus reducing patient’s weight.
The Lap Band System, also known as laparoscopic gastric banding, is a classic surgical treatment developed to help you achieve significant reduction in excess body weight. Off all the surgical procedures for reducing the capacity of the stomach, laparoscopic banding is the least invasive. It is one of the few bariatric procedures that is reversible.
One of the most popular and safest procedures for patients who want to lose weight is the vertical sleeve gastrectomy also referred to as gastric sleeve. Dr. Esquerra and Dr. Rodolfo Wilhelmy with over 8,000 weight loss surgeries have enabled patients to successfully lose weight and keep it off.
Gastric sleeve surgery (VSG) is a very popular procedure that offers great results for many patients but for a % of patients there may be insufficient weight loss or weight regain due to different reasons, which we will discuss further down.
