Dr. Verboonen performed my gastric sleeve surgery one year ago. I flew from Texas alone and was naturally nervous but once I arrived in Tijuana, Mexico  he and his staff took great care of me. He’s an amazing surgeon and I wouldn’t change a thing! I’ve presently lost 166 lbs and counting. Thank you Dr. Sergio Verboonen for changing my life!!!

Featured Bariatric Procedures

Gastric Sleeve

Also known as a sleeve gastrectomy, a gastric sleeve is a bariatric surgical option for patients with a BMI over 40. During a sleeve gastrectomy, the surgeon creates a smaller stomach pouch–roughly the size of a banana–to minimize your caloric intake. Our skilled surgeons perform gastric sleeve surgery in about an hour.

Single Incision Laparoscopic Sleeve Surgery

Single Incision Laparoscopic Sleeve Surgery (SILS) is a newer laparoscopic surgical approach that is minimally invasive. This technique involves less scarring, less discomfort, and a shorter recovery time. Because of these benefits, it is quickly becoming a popular bariatric surgery option. Good candidates for this weight loss surgery have a BMI between 30 to 39.

Mini Gastric Bypass

Mini gastric bypass surgery is considered a restrictive and malabsorptive weight loss surgery. Similar to a traditional gastric bypass, a smaller stomach pouch is created to restrict how much you can eat, and the gastrointestinal tract is modified to restrict the calories your body is able to absorb. However, the intestines are only rerouted in one location instead of two. This weight loss surgery is best for patients with a BMI of 35 to 60.

Duodenal Switch

Similar to other restrictive and malabsorptive procedures, a duodenal switch is a weight loss surgery that involves removing a portion of the stomach to create a smaller stomach pouch. A large portion of the intestine is bypassed to further reduce your caloric intake. The procedure also bypasses or removes more of the gastrointestinal tract than gastric bypass, reducing hunger-causing hormones. This form of weight loss surgery is intended for those who are severely overweight.

Revision Weight Loss Surgery

Patients who have previously undergone bariatric surgery and experienced complications or failed to achieve good results can often benefit from a revision or a conversion surgery. Our bariatric surgeons can convert or revise your previous surgery, such as converting a Lap-Band® into a gastric sleeve. This gives patients a better chance at achieving healthy and lasting weight loss.
