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.
