Best hospital i have ever visited. I am an expat on a short term assignment in Monterrey. I faced some emergency health issues and went to urgent care at this hospital. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Dr. in urgent care "Dr Rocio Aridna" was great and kind. Since i could not speak Spanish, she took me around and got all tests done. She truly went over and beyond her role to help me out.

Aunque nunca esperamos estar en un hospital , de tener que estar en uno desearía que fuera en uno como este. Los cuartos para los pacientes parecen un hotel. Muy limpios y cómodos. En la parte baja encontrarás buenas opciones de comida y café para los que se tienen que desvelar o pasar varios días ahí. Excelente el trato de los especialistas.

We came to to Hospital Angeles from Canada for the Functional Oncology Clinic. The clinic definitely saved my husband’s life...however, you need to be prepared for less timely and reliable customer service once they get your money, and especially if you need to go back for follow-up treatments. When you try to talk to them about this, the response is, “I’m so sorry you feel this way.” No accountability and no reparation. Although they initially come across as being 100% about caring for people, please remember that it is still a business to them. It is still about the money. Just a heads up so you’re not disillusioned like we were.

I came here to visit a special friend of ours. She was an employee of the hospital (which we did not know) Our friend was hit by a car while walking across the street. She was hospitalized here and had surgery also. When we arrived the staff showed us to their little breakfast/lunch bistro area. We ordered some food and coffees and some tea. We were awaiting our turn to visit our friend. When we tried to pay for our meals and drinks we were told that it was on the hospital and that any friends of their employee (our friend) were friends of theirs also. We had a wonderful visit. We noticed how the great care our friend was receiving. The nurses were also amazing. What a great hospital. We are so happy to know our special friend worked there and received such professional and courteous service. Thank you...Jay

Five stars and cheers to my husband's wonderful team of caregivers. From our initial contact with Alex, our patient coordinator, to our RN team --Jonathan, Mariela, Alejandra, and Isay --- to the terrific folks in ancillary services - Manuel, Armando, Miriam, Karina, Noe, Jose and Arturo-- we were blessed with people who made us feel welcome and valued. My husband received the best possible care and we felt they were vested in his return to terrific health. They delivered with expert training, compassion and service beyond the call of duty. We hope we don't need major medical care (hip replacement in this case) in the near future. If we do, we will certainly head for Mexicali and the team that supports my husband's wonderful orthopedic surgeon Dr. Juan Alvarez at Hospital Hispano Americano. They deliver truly excellent medical care.

I recently visited Dr. Castaneda and Cosmed Clinic in Tijuana, Mexico for gynecomastia surgery and lid surgery. This doctor and clinic are top of the line. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, the clinic clean and modern and the doctor top notch. The work performed beats all expectations that I had and the scarring is near invisible only 5 weeks out. Don't be afraid to go here down in Mexico; I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Adriana his assistant was so professional and walked me through the whole procedure and everything that was said was exactly how it went. I am so happy I did my research and found an amazing Plastic Surgeon. Sometimes going to Mexico may seem sketchy but I can assure you these Doctors know what they are doing. There office is so nice. The operating room was also very nice. Thank you Dr. Castaneda love my new body!!!

I had a wonderful experience in May 2019 at Cosmed in Tijuana. The doctors, nurses and facilities are wonderful, comparable to any in the U.S. - and I could not have received better care anywhere! The work that they did was magnificent (surgeon that I followed up with at Kaiser Permanente agreed and said the work was excellent). I felt very safe and very well taken care of during the entire process in Tijuana.

I asked for a minor consultation here for a fall I suffered not too long ago, thinking that I was going to break the bank for the service I was going to get. Not so, it seems.

En cuanto a seguridad deja mucho qué desear. Cualquier persona puede pasar sin necesidad de registrarse. Las escaleras de emergencia están cerradas y sólo puede usarse el elevador, el cual tarda demasiado tiempo en atender las llamadas de cada piso. Pésimo si se llegara a necesitar una salida de emergencia (escaleras).

The experience was amazing I basically got anything I needed and everyone was very nice, although I am vegan and they couldn’t make any food vegan for me but other than that everyone was very nice and professional and the driver took me to some vegan places in mexicali and I was able to see the city. The surgery I had went really well, and the doctor was able to answer all of my questions. It did help that I speak Spanish but if you dont there’s a translator by your side when ever you need her. The room was very clean and you get your own personal bathroom and around the clock kitchen staff when ever you’re hungry. Overall it was a great experience and I wouldn’t mind doing this all over again also try to explore a lil the food here is great and they have have starbucks.

Fantastic, trustworthy and knowledgeable are just a few adjectives that come to mind. I've known the management at Vida for some time now and have to say that they not only know what they are doing when it comes to cosmetic / plastic surgery & dermatology, but they are definitely a cost effective solution in the saturated surgical space.

I visited VIDA Wellness & Beauty on February of 2019. My experience was beyond amazing. I travelled from Miami because a close friend recommended me this wonderful clinic. The staff was very friendly, professional and attentive to all my needs, not to mention the faculty was super nice and very upscale. I love the way its designed, it felt very comfortable, clean and gave me very relaxing vibrations once I was there. Dr Fuentes performed Botox injections to erase my frown lines. The procedure was very quick, and my results are wonderful! I'm definitely going back and I HIGHLY recommend this place.

Questions and answers

What is weight loss surgery?

Weight loss or bariatric surgery is an intervention aimed to reduce the volume of the stomach and accelerate the food movement along the gastrointestinal tract reducing the amount of food you eat. Surgical intervention is the only weight loss method that gives a long-term and guaranteed result.

Who benefits the bariatric operation in Mexico?

The operation is necessary for overweight people with the body mass index (BMI) over 40 kg/m². To calculate your BMI, you need to divide your weight in kilograms twice by your height in meters. For example, your weight is 150 kg and your height is 1.7 m — BMI = 150 / 1.72 = 51.9 kg/m².

Obesity surgery in Mexico is also prescribed for people with concomitant diseases — hypertension, diabetes mellitus, joint damage. In this case, the operation is carried out with a BMI of 30-35 kg/m²

After calculating your body mass index, consult with a surgeon. Only a doctor can decide if you need this procedure, choose the most effective bariatric surgery method in your particular case, answer all your questions, and predict the results after the operation.

What are the types of weight loss operations?

Sleeve gastrectomy

During the surgery, 80% of the stomach is removed. Surgeons form a tube 2-2.5 cm in diameter. Thus, the volume of the stomach and the amount of food absorbed are reduced.

Gastric bypass

During this operation, surgeons form a stomach pocket with a volume of 15-30 ml. Food from the pocket gets to the small intestine directly. As a result, patients have a sense of fullness even when taking a small amount of food.

Gastric band

In this case, bariatric doctors put the upper part of the stomach in a silicone cuff or gastric band. It narrows the stomach cavity and regulates the speed of food movement through it.

Gastric balloon

During the procedure, surgeons place an empty silicone balloon into the stomach. Then specialists fill a balloon with the physiological saline to the required volume. The operation helps to simulate a sense of fullness in the stomach.

Stomach stapling

During this surgery, metabolic specialists decrease the stomach volume and form a smaller diameter gastric tube. A part of the stomach is not removed, and the gastric wall is sewn with a multi-row suture.

What are the contraindications?

Bariatric surgery in Mexico is not performed for teenagers and people with alcohol or drug addiction. Other contraindications include: 

  • body mass index less than 30
  • pregnancy
  • Cushing's disease
  • thyroid disorders
  • peptic or esophageal ulcer
  • inflammatory bowel disease
  • coronary artery disease
  • lung diseases
  • active cancer treatment
  • mental illness (psychosis, severe depression).

What is preoperative preparation for obesity surgery?

Before the operation, you should stick to some rules and follow the doctor’s recommendations. The most important among then are:

  • Preoperative diet — a short-term (2-6 weeks) diet before the surgery will lower your body mass index and reduce the risk of complications. The preoperative diet usually consists of foods high in protein and low in carbohydrates, plenty of water. 
  • Quitting smoking — at least 6 weeks before undergoing general anesthesia, as smoking before the intervention increases the risk of postoperative complications (heart attack, stroke, thromboembolism, infection, pneumonia, and death).
  • Physical activity — in the preoperative period improves well-being, general tone, lung, and heart capacity. In addition to your daily activities (work, shopping, and cleaning), try cycling, walking, or swimming for at least half an hour a day. The healthier you will be before the operation, the faster the recovery after the operations will be.

More about the presurgical program you can find here.

What is the process of weight loss treatment?

The operation plan mainly depends on the method of obesity surgery. Each of them differs in the technique of performing. Generally, the procedure takes about 3 hours.

The hospitalization is required. Usually, the patient stays in the hospital for 2-3 days:

  • 1st day — the surgery
  • 2nd day — stay in the intensive care unit
  • 3rd day — stay in the inpatient department 
  • 4th day — discharge from the hospital.

What are the risks during the surgery in Mexico?

Bariatric operation is a serious surgical intervention, so has some risks:

  • bleeding
  • wound infections
  • intestinal or bowel obstruction
  • internal hernias
  • vomiting
  • ulcers
  • low blood sugar.

However, the operation is minimally invasive and the success rate of weight loss operation is 98%.

How long is the recovery period after the bariatric operation?

  • In the first 2 days after the operation, the patient can consume only liquids.
  • On the third day after the procedure, the person takes food in small portions 5-6 times a day. Gradually, the patient develops new nutritional habits. 
  • Getting out of bed is allowed on the second day after the weight loss surgery in Mexico. Gradually, the physical activity increases and step-by-step the patient comes back to the common lifestyle. 
  • In two weeks a person can return to work if the activity is not associated with heavy physical exertion.
  • Intense physical exertions are forbidden for two months. 
  • Then physical activity is required: walking at least three kilometers a day, swimming, cycling, or aerobics will help to overcome the difficulties during the recovery period and return to a full-fledged lifestyle faster.

Read more about the rehabilitation after the obesity procedure here.

How soon after weight loss surgery can you get pregnant?

If you are planning a pregnancy, postpone it for at least 18 months after the procedure. This is the time when your weight is reduced so pregnancy will be a big burden for the body. 

After this period, pregnancy is usually safer than before the surgery — for both the mother and the baby. You should inform your gynecologist what type of intervention you had and if there were any complications after the procedure (blood clots, blood transfusion, etc.).

What results can you expect after obesity surgery in Mexico?

During a year after the operation, a person loses up to 60-70% of excess weight. In rare cases, it takes about 1.5 years. It is important that losing weight is irreversible if the patient follows all doctor’s recommendations — the weight will go away and won’t come back. This is a major advantage of the surgical treatment of the overweight. 

Besides, after the weight loss surgery in Mexico, the patients also notice regress or get rid of other diseases associated with obesity — type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension (high blood pressure), cardiac pathology, hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol), arthritis, infertility.

Do you need to take vitamin or mineral supplements?

Yes, usually you need to take vitamins and minerals. Supplements provide the patient with essential nutrients needed to maintain good health. A diet that must be kept after the surgery may not always provide the full range of nutrients.
