Our treatments

Gastric tube

Today, Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy, gastric tube or Sleeve gastrectomy is the most physiological mechanism surgery and that will give you a higher life quality of all surgeries. This surgery will reduce the size of the stomach making a sort of tube, which reduces the amount of intake.

Consiste en reducir el tamaño del estómago convirtiéndolo en una especie de tubo, lo que reduce el volumen de la ingesta.

Gastric bypass

The most performed procedure in the world. It is slightly more effective than the Sleeve Gastrectomy against type 2 diabetes.

The stomach is reduced in size (much smaller than in the Sleeve) and we perform a bypass in digestion. This causes digestive juices to get together with food in a more advanced point of digestion, which determines that a part of it, especially fats, are not absorbed.

Intragastric balloons

It is a safe and efficient method for a controled weight loss. This balloon is inserted in your stomach by endoscopic means occupying a certain amount of space and causing a feeling of being full. This helps you lose weight and adquire healthier eating habits.

Procedure recommended in certain patients with overweight and low obesity level refractory to diet.
