State-of-the-art surgical equipment with US medical trained Dr. Alvarez as the lead surgeon. It is possible to have sleeve surgery in Mexico at a price less than what we charge, but to stay current with the latest technology requires a considerable investment, and we guarantee that all of our patients will have their surgery at Endohospital, which is designated as a Center of Excellence located in a real and complete HOSPITAL under 24-hour medical care.
Results without complications. Dr. Alvarez and his surgical team of bariatric doctors and nurses only accept 3 to 5 sleeve patients daily. You were not just a number when you chose Endobariatric. To offer a lower cost, other Mexican physicians must perform more daily surgeries. Dr. Alvarez is committed to quality over quantity. He has perfected his technique and takes his time with each patient so that complications (possible leak, nausea, severe pain) only occur in less than 1% of patients. Dr. Alvarez achieved SRC accreditation as a Master Surgeon in Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery in 2012 and is recognized for his commitment to delivering excellence in patient safety and care.
100% unconditional satisfaction. If you are a rare patient who develops a leak. Dr. Alvarez will perform surgery at his facility to fix the leak at no additional cost. Once you become his patient, he stands behind his work 100%. When you leave the hospital, you’ll have a direct line to contact us for any questions.
