About Monterrey Gastro & Bariatric Group

MG-BG specializes in a comprehensive Bariatric Surgery Program designed to ensure the success of your procedure for life.

MG-BG is proud to serve patients from all over the US and Canada and was created specifically with this purpose. Let us take care of all the details of your medical trip.

Procedures:

The Mini Gastric Bypass is a less invasive procedure and requires less time for surgery and recovery, with the same benefits than the regular bypass. The technique for this surgery creates a narrow gastric tube that is attached to the small intestine approximately five feet (200cm) from its starting point, a placement that bypasses the highly absorptive section of the intestine without the necessity of a second intestinal reconnection.

The Gastric Sleeve. This procedure achieves weight loss results by restricting the amount of food that your body is physically able to take in. It involves removing a large portion of the stomach, anywhere from 60% to 85% of the total stomach. The portion left behind is a "sleeve" that will serve as your new stomach. No rerouting of the intestines is needed and there are no malabsorption secondary effects.

The Gastric bypass is a weight loss surgery that involves both restrictive and malabsorptive technique to achieve weight loss. Involves separating the stomach into a smaller, upper pouch and a larger, lower section, while the small intestine is divided and rerouted.

The Gastric Balloon. A soft and flexible silicone sphere is inserted in the stomach of the patient, by endoscopy, in order to achieve weight reduction. Its main mechanism is to generate a feeling of fullness or early satiety so the person lowers the consumption of food, which in turn simplifies the process of weight loss. In some cases it can be the first step to a weight loss surgery.

Obesity is a complex disease that requires a multidisciplinary team that provides prevention, education, treatment and follow-up.

We know that each patient is unique and treatment options should be decided according to the specific needs of the patient. MG-BG specializes in providing a proven and comprehensive Bariatric program, that includes a personalized nutritional plan and exercise routines.

This approach and constant monitoring enables us to provide quality care during post op for every patient, which is mirrored in the excellent results achieved by our patients.

Care for patients who are overweight or suffer from obesity requires special training, which our team is committed and dedicated to offering with the most advanced and up-to-date professional care.

Our team members have been selected through a process of quality control and have special attention and sensitivity to patients with overweight and obesity.

"The treatment I received was wonderful"
Clinic's favourite review
100%Reviewed 31 Aug 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Gastric Bypass
I had the mini gastric bypass with Dr. Barrarea on August 16th, 2017 in Monterrey Mx. It was a revision from the lap band I had had for 9 years. I was very pleased with the courteous medical staff the nurses and the Anstheoligist. The hospital was very nice, better than what I have in my home town in Georgia. The treatment I received was wonderful I couldn't have asked for a better hospital stay or hotel stay!

Now about my Doctor. He was the most helpful, kind, intelligent, friendly, professional Doctor I ever had the pleasure of meeting. Dr. Barrarea performed an awesome surgery! He even sent me home with the DVD of the laparoscopic surgery he did so I would have it in case I needed to show any of my doctors in the states. His level of care I have never had before here in Georgia. I couldn't say anything but great things about my experience from the driver to the coordinator and the mg-bg office staff. Everyone was amazing. It was the smoothest surgery I have ever had. I was shocked by being able to leave the hospital after one night stay because I just wasn't hurting. This doctor is a Gem and I just can't say or thank him and his staff enough for this wonderful opportunity to work with them! I am 2 weeks post op and down 20 pounds. I feel great and I am so thankful.

I give this clinic an A+++! If you are on the fence about surgery don't be, they will take very good care of you, just like they did me. I am a 33-year-old mother of 3 from the country in South Georgia.

"The treatment and experience was first class"
80%Reviewed 19 Mar 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Gastric Sleeve
I had the gastric sleeve done by Dr. Barrera. The treatment and experience was first class.

Monterrey is a big city, so the drive from the airport was diverse. The hotel as well as the hospital was very comfortable. The language barrier was somewhat of a problem, but not that big. I don't regret anything. Everyone was great.

"The price is super reasonable for Gastric Sleeve"
100%Reviewed 13 Sep 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Gastric Sleeve
I had the vertical sleeve done to lose weight and get my co-morbidities under control. I have high blood pressure, dangerously high cholesterol, and peptide hormone resistant diabetes and ALL my numbers have improved since having had the procedure. I could not get the VSG done in the United States because my BMI didn't meet the standard requirements. Also, because of these BMI requirements my health insurance would not pay for it no matter how sick I was. I would recommend this treatment for anyone in my position, or to someone who just wanted to get rid of their unhealthy weight. The price is super reasonable.

I had the best experience with MG/BG. Nydia, one of the coordinators, took care of all the arrangements, I just had to get to Monterrey. I really liked the fact that my procedure would be done in a hospital instead of a clinic, especially since I had never had surgery before and didn't know how I would do under anesthesia. The hospital was beautiful, and so clean. The nutritionist and internist were very nice and professional. The best of all was my surgeon Dr.Francisco Barrera. He was so knowledgeable and kind. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone thinking about having any kind of bariatric procedure.
