About Mario Del Pino, MD

Dr. Mario Del Pino is a thoroughly educated surgeon specializing in bariatric surgery. Dr. Del Pino has competed advanced training in bariatric surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and he has also received fellowship training in minimally invasive surgical techniques. As a result, Dr. Del Pino performs most bariatric treatments laparoscopically - through several small holes in the abdominal wall as opposed to one large, open incision. This approach reduces the risks of infection and bleeding, and it results in faster recovery times.

In order to help all of his patients achieve their weight loss goals and improve their overall health, Dr. Del Pino offers several bariatric procedures, including Lap-Band, gastric sleeve and gastric bypass in McAllen. Prior to recommending any treatment, Dr. Del Pino performs thorough consultations during which time he evaluates the patients' body mass index, overall health and psychological readiness for surgery.

Because weight loss surgery requires long-term patient monitoring, Dr. Mario Del Pino and his medical team offer comprehensive post-surgical programs that help patients maintain proper diet and exercise habits.
