Leading bariatric surgeon Dr. Jose A. Castaneda Cruz is launching a new campaign in February 2014 destined at helping patients looking for bariatric surgery in Mexico whilst improving the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes. Weight loss surgery is performed at CMQ Premiere hospital in Puerto Vallarta, considered one of the most beautiful and safe destinations in Mexico.

Dr. Jose A. Castaneda leads the Obesity Solutions medical team, integrating a group of bariatric surgeons all specialists in laparoscopic duodenal switch, and duodenal switch with one anastomosis. Dr. Castaneda Cruz is one of the first bariatric surgeons in Mexico to perform both: traditional laparoscopic duodenal switch surgery as well as duodenal switch with one anastomosis laparoscopically.

“The single anastomosis duodenoileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy is a simplified duodenal switch procedure that is safe and quicker to perform. It delivers excellent results for the treatment of both morbid obesity and its metabolic complications. Other important advantages of the technique are a shorter operative time, the reduction to only one anastomosis and the non-opening of the mesentery or division of bowel”, explains Dr. Castaneda.

Duodenal switch is a very unique and specialized surgery that only a handful of bariatric surgeons are able to perform, which can cost up to $50,000 in some countries. However, undergoing duodenal switch in Mexico with Dr Castaneda and his medical team will save patients thousands of dollars, and the new duodenal switch packages start from $7,500 exclusively for patients booking their surgery in early 2014. In most cases, the long term benefits generally outweigh the cost of surgery. Other great benefits to consider when having duodenal switch in Mexico are stunning locations such as Puerto Vallarta and Guadalajara, that will help patients in recuperating after weight loss surgery. For residents of the United States it´s a short and fairly inexpensive trip across.

Dr Castaneda is an advocate of medical tourism in Mexico, he explains: “Practitioners in Mexico are certified and government
regulated as well, so the risks associated with this kind of invasive surgery are minimised. Mexico is the most popular medical tourism destination for US and Canadian patients seeking weight loss surgery, and at Obesity Solutions we guarantee a successful track record of thousands of satisfied patients that now enjoy a better quality of life back home.”

Duodenal switch is just one of a wide range of bariatric procedures performed by Dr Castaneda and his medical team, other popular bariatric procedures include gastric bypass surgery, gastric banding and sleeve gastrectomy. “We encourage patients to speak with us for an initial assessment in order to identify the best procedure, as each patient is unique in their metabolism and needs,” says Dr Castaneda.
