It was founded by Dr. Alberto Aceves in 2002 and during the last 12 years it has successfully treated thousands of Americans and Canadians overweight patients. MBC has a multidisciplinary team of bariatric surgeons as well as the support of psychologists, internists, nutritionists, surgeons, patient coordinators, chef, personal trainers and support groups. Currently MBC is led by board certified surgeons Dr. Gilberto Ungson, Mexico’s foremost authority on the Duodenal Switch Surgery, and Dr. Rodolfo Wilhelmy, one of the leading weight loss surgeons in the nation.

The Mexicali Bariatric Center team is honored to receive this recognition, which adds to the commitment to ensure optimal patient care before and after surgery in order to ensure long-term success in weight loss and on eliminating obesity-related comorbidities.
