Mexico Bariatric Center® is Breaking Barriers and Changing Lives
Mexico Bariatric Center® performs surgery on a 700-lb patient.
TIJUANA, Mexico, February 14, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Mexico Bariatric Center® (MBC) is a leading provider of complex bariatric surgeries for patients with super high BMI (Body Mass Index). As an exclusive surgeon at MBC, Dr. Christian Rodriguez, M.D., is an expert in operating on out-of-the-ordinary cases.
Most surgeons will not accept super-heavy patients (BMI 55 and higher). Dr. Christian Rodriguez defies convention by treating patients ordinarily viewed as uneligible for weight loss surgery, earning him the title of "Super Surgeon."
The most recent was a 700-lb patient, who underwent gastric sleeve surgery (VSG) with Dr. Christian Rodriguez in January 2023. The procedure was completed in a 2-hour operative time with no negative side issues or complications.
The President of the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders, Dr. Antonio J. Torres, applauded Dr. Christian Rodriguez for performing cutting-edge, hard-to-do laparoscopic and endoscopic weight loss procedures on super obese patients.
The patient expresses his heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Christian Rodriguez and all the MBC members for making this possible and giving him a renewed life. Special thanks to Ron Elli, Ph.D., founder and director of Mexico Bariatric Center®.
"Using bariatric surgery as a tool, severely obese persons with comorbidities are given a second chance at life." - Dr. Ron Elli.
The patient is very happy with the support and care from MBC. Stay tuned to see photos of his journey.
