Going to Mexico for gastric bypass surgery has become the most popular option for patients seeking bariatric surgery abroad.

On January 14th Dr Jose A. Castaneda performed gastric bypass surgery successfully on patient Mr Raymond who arrived from the United States and left a video testimonial sharing his experience with people considering bariatric surgery in Mexico.

The operation took place in the beautiful city of Guadalajara, where Dr Castaneda performs most of his innovative bariatric surgeries on international patients at one of the best private hospitals in Mexico, also providing weight loss surgery in Puerto Vallarta.

Mr Raymond explains: "At 64 years of age I had reached 247 pounds of bodyweight and the problem was becoming increasingly more aggravating. If that wasn't enough, I had to endure other related diseases including diabetes, hypertension, pain in my joints, and sleep apnea. It was a bad health situation and that's why I decided to find information on the internet. It didn't take me long to find Dr. Castaneda's details online along with information published by several bariatric surgeons in Mexico. Some weight loss surgeons were based near the border which made them quite accessible and prices were competitive in most cases. But that gave me no confidence because the surgeries were done in clinics instead of hospitals. Then I spoke with Dr Castaneda and I felt that he was the right person, plus there are very positive comments about his work and career, and most importantly bariatric surgery is performed in certified hospitals.

"I gradually ceased taking medication for diabetes, and other diseases which did gradually disappeared up to a point. The risk of diseases such as cardiovascular problems, diabetes, cholesterol and bone problems due to being overweight, have declined dramatically. Now, when I look at a current picture of me and compare it with who I was before surgery, honestly I do not recognize myself, in the best sense of the world!. I would therefore like to thank Doctor Castaneda, not only by the amazing results, but also by the great human and caring treatment I received from him and the rest of the medical staff at Obesity Solutions, nurses and assistants were all very kind."

Gastric bypass in Mexico can be found at, one of the leading websites focusing on weight loss surgery and those patients researching Mexico as potential destination to treat morbid obesity and other associated diseases. The innovative online tools developed for patients by Dr Castaneda in 2013 won him the “Best Bariatric Surgeon 2013” awarded by the prestigious, for his contribution to delivering outstanding service to bariatric patients via his mobile friendly websites and bariatric app.

Dr Castaneda is a leading bariatric surgeon in Mexico, specialist in duodenal switch surgery, gastric bypass, gastric banding, metabolic surgery, whilst also leading the way by implementing new weight loss surgery procedures, and surgery for diabetes.

"When Raymond first approached us we spoke about his condition, and possible ways to improve it, followed by a personal in-depth nutritional and bariatric surgery assessment which helped the Obesity Solutions medical team to identify that gastric bypass surgery was the best option for him," says Dr Castaneda. "I am thrilled to have been chosen by Mr Raymond amongst the many other alternatives available for weight loss surgery in Mexico," says Dr Jose A. Castaneda.
