Bariatric Surgery Options in Mexico

Jacqueline Osuna-Rubio, MD, is a board-certified bariatric surgeon skilled at performing various weight-loss surgeries in Mexico. As a member of the team at Mexico Bariatric Center, Dr. Osuna currently offers all the major weight loss surgeries, including:

Types of Weight Loss Surgeries

Bariatric surgeries are divided into two separate categories: restrictive and malabsorptive. The restrictive technique is when the stomach’s capacity is reduced to facilitate weight loss. The restrictive technique is the main component of the Lap-Band system (gastric banding), gastric sleeve, sleeve plication, and gastric balloon.

Gastric Bypass in Mexico

Gastric bypass is a weight loss procedure that uses two techniques to achieve weight loss. Gastric bypass produces weight loss via two techniques: malabsorptive and restrictive.

The malabsorptive technique involves rerouting a patient’s intestines to reduce the calories absorbed. This powerful technique is used with restrictive techniques, such as the RNY gastric bypass and duodenal switch.

Gastric Sleeve in Mexico

Gastric Sleeve gastrectomy is a bariatric surgery that produces weight loss by restricting the size of the stomach. Dr. Osuna performs this procedure laparoscopically, removing as much as 80% of the stomach.

Duodenal Switch in Mexico

The Duodenal Switch procedure is one of the most complex and effective bariatric procedures. Done laparoscopically, Dr. Osuna removes a portion of the stomach and reroutes the small intestines so patients feel full faster and absorb fewer calories.

Gastric Banding in Mexico

Gastric banding surgery is commonly known as the Lap-Band system, a specific brand of implants. Only one other brand, the REALIZE system, is FDA-approved for weight loss surgery.

Gastric Plication in Mexico

Gastric Plication is an upcoming surgery that folds the stomach into itself to reduce the stomach capacity size. There are very few complications and risks with this procedure.

Jacqueline Osuna, MD, is capable of performing bariatric surgery revisions. Dr. Osuna cut her teeth to learn various weight loss surgery revisions. The most common revision surgeries are Gastric Banding (Lap-Band) to Gastric Sleeve conversions.
