Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Dr. Wilhemy and Dr. Esquerra perform this surgery with great accuracy by narrowing the stomach to create a long sleeve that connects the esophagus to the small intestine. The stomach is then stapled and the rest of it removed. This limits the amount of food the patient consumes, giving the feeling of satisfaction with less food intake.
Gastric Bypass Surgery
RNY is the preferred bariatric surgery in the US. Most of our patients have successful long term weight loss results with minimal weight regain because of Dr. Esquerra’s and Dr. Wilhelmy’s impeccable technique. This procedure limits your food intake and it reduces the amount of calories the body absorbs.
Duodenal Switch Surgery
The procedure could be labeled as a Gastric-Bypass-Gastric-Sleeve consolidation. Dr. Gilberto Ungson is Mexico’s leading bariatric surgeon in this procedure. Dr. Ungson and Dr. Esquerra reduces the stomach creating a sleeve and connects it to the intestine which has a chance to digest food before it enters the colon. The DS is both restrictive and malabsorptive.
Patients consider revision surgery as an option when not enough weight was lost following surgery, there was weight gained back or had long term surgery related complications Dr. Esquerra and Dr. Wilhelmy have performed thousands of lap Band, gastric sleeve, and gastric bypass revision surgeries, ranking them as the leading bariatric team in the nation.

Marilyn Hall, I have accompanied appx 40-50 patients down for procedures – this is a personal free mission of mine. This was so life altering that I never want anyone to be afraid to go down. I am in the business of Physician Management here in the states and I have had some of my clients use the services there. It is a wonderful facility and the surgical skill of Dr. Aceves and Mexiali Bariatric Center is absolutely second to NONE.Marilyn Hall
Dr Wilhelmy gave me a 2nd chance at weight loss. I had a sleeve done in 2012 and had already regained 40 of the 50 lbs I had lost originally. Mexicali Bariatric Center is known for doing the best revisions so I contacted them and am happy that Dr Wilhelmy took me in as his patient. The restriction I feel now with my sleeve is nothing like what I felt the first time around. Seeing the difference in my sleeve before and the sleeve after surgery I knkow I will do well and can only thank the team at MBC for giving me this 2nd chance. I wish I had been there the first time I had surgery. The experience from the time Ernesto the driver picked me up to the time he took me back was outstanding. Almater hospital is comparable to any US hospital, really clean and even better than some of the ones I have been at! Thank you everyone!BlueJackets
I love everyone at Mexicali Bariatric Center! Recommend them to all who will listen! I drove from Las Vegas to Mexicali to have my sleeve done by this excellent surgeon and was met with the entire team of doctors, nurses and coordinators that treated me like a human being. I was scared and nervous and second guessing my decision. They put my mind at ease and took very good care of me during my 5 day stay. My nephew had just had his sleeve with Dr Wilhelmy and I followed! He will write his review too. Thank you Dr. Wilhemly, thank you Dr. Campos, Thank you Dr. Beltran, I wil be seeing you soon with my husband for surgery. Oct. 26, 2014FloweryStreet
