Weight Loss Surgery at
ALO Bariatrics Mexico
ALO Bariatrics is the premier destination for The cost-conscious weight loss surgery in Mexico.
Millions of people struggle with obesity. It is the epidemics of the XXI. Alongside its comorbidities such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and more, it has become a major disease that affects not only the obese but their families as well. High costs of surgery in the United States have made bariatric surgery prohibitive to most American families.
Fortunately, ALO Bariatrics provides affordable world-class weight loss surgery options with some of the most highly trained, best bariatric surgeons in Mexico.
We’ve performed over more than 6,000 and more than 10 years of experience in weight loss surgery procedures and have one of the lowest rates of post-surgical complications in the profession.
Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
Also referred to as a Gastric Sleeve, this procedure results in weight loss by restriction of the amount of food that can be eaten. In this weight loss procedure, the stomach is divided vertically with 75-85 percent of it being removed. It is functionally similar to a lap band, however, a Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy doesn’t require fills and the patient typically experiences a greater weight loss. A Gastric Sleeve is not reversible, however, and patients should not consider this option if they are looking for a reversible solution.
Gastric Bypass Surgery Mexico
Gastric bypass surgery restricts food intake by creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach. The pouch is then connected to a section of the small intestine, allowing food to bypass the lower stomach and the first two parts of the small intestine. Although this should be viewed as a permanent procedure, gastric bypass surgery may be reversed.
Bariatric revision surgery is performed on patients who have had previous bariatric surgery and either regained weight, stagnated on their weight loss or complications related to the initial method require a second or third surgery.
Revision surgeries can be the most difficult bariatric procedures and thus require an exceptionally skilled bariatric surgeon and endoscopist to properly evaluate every unique situation and make a determination for the best course of action for the patient. Dr. Lopéz and his team have performed close to 1,000 revision surgeries and are highly experienced in the various technicalities of these procedures.
Mini-gastric bypass is a simplified version of the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. Mini gastric bypass surgery is a short and relatively simple procedure that has been shown by the available research to have low risk and result in good short and long-term weight loss.
Mini-gastric bypass is an optimal choice for patients with higher BMI’s or that would benefit from a shortened operation time.
Duodenal Switch Surgery In Abroad
Duodenal switch is a surgical weight loss procedure that is a combination of a restrictive and malabsorptive type. In a duodenal switch procedure, the stomach capacity is reduced by 70-80% forming a gastric sleeve and the connection to the intestine re-routed leaving only 20 – 30% of viable intestine for food absorption. The exclusion of a greater part of the intestine for absorption gives the procedure the benefit of not regaining weight in the long term. This is a procedure that offers all benefits of a gastric sleeve plus the shortcut of the intestine that will aid in the metabolic syndrome, but with very long term results.
The Duodenal Switch (DS) is the combination of two operations, with different purposes, developed in the last 50 years to treat obesity:
- Vertical gastrectomy. With it, the stomach size is reduced by 80% (restrictive) in order to eat less, and a second part,
- Biliary-Pancreatic bypass, reducing, the absorptive, effective length of the small intestine and thus the ability to absorb ingested food (Malabsorptive).
It is therefore a mixed or hybrid surgery. Neither factors (restrictive or poorly-absorptive) is carried so far that it alters the individual function and is designed for restrictive and malabsorptive join functions so that side effects are minimal.
