Disney-like treatment. From the moment you get picked up in San Antonio until 3 days later when you return for your flight (or drive) home you will be treated like one of our family.
Simple one-price payment. Your hotel and hospital stays, the surgery, the nursing care, the take home prescriptions and sleeve-acceptable snacks and drinks are all included in the price. There are no hidden costs or after-you-get-home physician or anesthesia bills arriving.
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 we charge, but to stay current with the latest technology requires considerable investment and we guarantee our world-class surgery center 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 4 sleeve patients per day. You are not just a number when you chose Endobariatric. To offer a lower cost, other Mexican physicians have to perform more surgeries per day. Dr. Alvarez is committed to quality over quantity. He has perfected his technique and takes his time with each patient that complications (possible leak, nausea, severe pain) only occurs in less than 1% of patients. Which is part of the reason he was given the highest designation of bariatric surgeon of excellence (only 11 other physicians world-wide have this designation).
100% unconditional satisfaction. If you are the 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 his personal email and phone number and can contact him with any questions.
