Mexico Bariatric Center Helps Patient from the UK undergo Bariatric Surgery
April 17, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsApril 17, 2014 - Mexico Bariatric Center (MBC), a leader in medical tourism for weight loss surgery, has helped a patient from the United Kingdom to get obesity surgery in Mexico. MBC has become a global brand and has attracted patients from all over the world, including United States, Canada, Europe, and South Africa.
"We are seeing more and more patients from all around the world," says Ron Elli, Ph.D., the founder of Mexico Bariatric Center. Ron continues "we are well-represented in the United States and Canada, and we're becoming popular in other countries too."
The patient travelled to Mexico to get the life-changing gastric sleeve surgery (vertical sleeve gastrectomy) in Tijuana with surgeon, Alejandro Lopez, MD. "Dr. [Alejandro] Lopez is a wonderful man and surgeon, and I'm happy that I chose him," says Patient.
"Five days out I am very happy and would do it all again, because the whole thing from start to finish has just been phenomenal." Patient continues, "I feel great like I have not had any surgery at all."
"This is somewhat common, many patients are well-enough to walk, do mild exercise and even go back to work after just a few weeks," says Ron Elli, Ph.D. "Our sleeve package includes 5 nights to ensure full recovery before they leave Mexico. We use full-service hospitals - that means we can provide the highest-levels of patient care possible," Ron Elli, Ph.D. continues.
