"Can only ask myself "why didn't I do this a long time ago?"
100%Reviewed 08 Aug 2016 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Gastric Sleeve
Hello, my name is Claudia. I received the gastric sleeve surgery and can only ask myself "why didn't I do this a long time ago?" I considered having the balloon insertion but quickly learned that it was a much better choice to get the sleeve. Frank was helpful in explaining the differences between the 2 treatments. I have lost the 100 pounds that I needed to lose and have only gained 10 pounds since the surgery 2 yrs ago. I seem to be stuck at this weight no matter what I do. Which is great!

The surgery was done at the Obesity Goodbye Clinic. Which is not a hospital but it feels just like one. The staff and attention I received was more than what I expected. Frank was kind to me on the phone and was so patient with all my questions. "Thank you Frank, you are an angel". I actually got to meet Dr. Verboonen and not only that but he spend a great deal of time with me. In fact, he received me in his lobby himself. I rate this clinic 100%

I also want to mention that the beach house experience was great. I recommend staying here if you like the ocean. It is isolated from the big city and that was very relaxing to me. I think the house belongs to Frank

"My surgery went smooth, and my results are amazing!"
100%Reviewed 15 Feb 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Gastric Sleeve
I chose the gastric sleeve because I knew it would help me loose weight fast with out struggling. In 30 days I lost 30 lbs! This is a great value but the service I received form the entire staff and all the time from the doctor himself is unmatched.

My experience with Frank, the patient coordinator, has been amazing! From the first day when I was inquiring about weight loss surgery, Frank answered all my questions. He was informative and well versed in everything I wanted to know about medical tourism, and the different bariatric surgery options. His knowledge and professionalism left me feeling confident in choosing DR Verboonen for my gastric sleeve procedure. When I arrived and seen the clinic I was impressed. The staffs attentiveness to my needs and the doctors candor left me feeling at ease. My surgery went smooth, and my results are amazing! If you are looking to start your weight loss journey, I highly recommend working with Frank at My Medical Destination and dr. Sergio Verboonen and his Obesity Goodbye team. Choosing them gave me a great experience, with amazing results, for a very affordable rate. Additionally, Frank and Dr. Verboonen were able to accommodate my husband and 1yr old for a total of 4 days. All included in the price!

"I saved thousands by going here"
100%Reviewed 08 Feb 2016 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Gastric Sleeve
Gastric Sleeve is the treatment that I received. I have heard so many good things about it form other friends that visited Dr. Verboonen. I saved thousands by going to here. I would definitely encourage anyone that is thinking about it to do it!

I cannot recommend this surgery enough. The picture of before and after says it all, and 7 months later I am 65 pounds lighter. The experience was fantastic at Obesity Clinic in Tijuana and Dr. Verboonen is a wonderful man and surgeon.

Frank Nunez was my personal patient coordinator. He explained the entire process to me and made me feel very sure of my decision. Also, if you plan to get surgery at Obesity Goodbye, make sure to get the Beach House Promotion. It is truly wonderful, private, clean and transportation is included. Ask Frank about this. (It is his home)

My husband is deployed and when he returns he is having the surgery next. Any health issues I had due to my obesity are gone and I feel better than I have ever felt before. This journey isn’t a piece of cake and I still struggle with food choices and have to exercise 4/5 times a week, but I am 100% better than I used to be and shopping for small tops is the most amazing feeling, not to mention size medium pants. Coming from a XXL and 16-18 pant, it’s a miracle. I would encourage anybody who is fighting the fat fight and the yoyo dieting to consider this surgery, it will be the best investment you can make for yourself.

Bariatric Surgery Consultation
Gastric Balloon

A gastric balloon aims to reduce feelings of hunger and help you feel fuller for longer after eating only small meals. Also known as an intragastric balloon, this type of weight loss treatment can help you lose weight without invasive surgery.

During the procedure a soft balloon is inserted into your stomach through your mouth, using an endoscope (a thin, flexible telescope). The balloon is then filled with saline solution to partially fill your stomach, leaving less room for large amounts of food or drink. A gastric balloon is designed to be a temporary weight loss solution, and will usually be removed after six months. It is sometimes used to help you lose enough weight to undergo gastric banding or gastric bypass surgery.

This treatment costs:

Tijuana starting at $3000

Cancun $4300

Gastric Band

Gastric banding, also known as lap banding, is a procedure which aims to make you feel full after eating a small portion of food. It works by restricting the capacity of your stomach, so that you eat less and, over time, lose weight.

Tijuana: $4500-$5400

Cancun: $5500

Gastric Bypass
Mini Gastric Bypass

the Mini Gastric Bypass is a short, simple, successful, reversible laparoscopic gastric bypass weight loss surgery. Teh operation usually takes only 30 min., hospital stay may be less than 24 hours. The Mini Gastric Bypass is low risk, has excellent long term weight loss, minimal pain ans can be easily reversed or revised.

Tijuana: $6500 - $7500

Cancun: $8500


Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass surgery (most commonly the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass) is a procedure which aims to reduce the amount of calories absorbed from your food whilst helping you to feel full after eating smaller meals.

This weight loss procedure works in two ways:

  • By restricting the capacity of your stomach, and by
  • Bypassing part of your digestive system

Tijuana: $7500 - $8500

Cancun: $9500

Gastric Sleeve Sleeve Gastrectomy

Gastric sleeve or sleeve gastrectomy surgery is a type of weight loss surgery. It may be appropriate for you if you have a body mass index (BMI) of 35 or more. It is a more significant operation than having a gastric band fitted, however it is not considered as major as a gastric bypass since it involves fewer changes to your body’s digestive system.

Sleeve gastrectomy can be performed on its own, however it is sometimes performed as the first part of a two stage procedure. For patients considered too high risk for gastric bypass for example, the gastric bypass can be performed sometime after the gastric sleeve surgery once the patient has lost some weight.

Tijuana: Starting at $4500

Cancun: $5500
