Obesity Affects All Aspects of Life
Obesity's impact on patients is profound. It hinders daily activities and brings about health problems like diabetes and heart disease. Visibly, weight gain affects self-esteem, and society often adds to the burden with discrimination and bias. This not only strains patients’ emotional well-being but can also pose financial challenges due to medical bills and job limitations.
Dealing with obesity is more than just a physical challenge; it has profound emotional and mental impacts.
Many individuals grapple with a poor self-image, often feeling they don't measure up because of their weight. The repeated attempts at weight loss, without success, can be incredibly disheartening. This struggle can lead some to retreat from social situations, concerned about perceptions or judgments. There's also the looming worry about potential health complications and missing out on life's significant moments. It's a multifaceted challenge, touching both the body and the soul.

Spotlight on Nutritionist Linda Cardona – Dietary Counseling for Long-Term Health
Weight loss surgery isn't the only step for lasting wellness and a healthier future. To help ensure that patients lose weight and keep that weight off, our licensed bariatric nutritionist, a member of the American College and the ASBS, Linda Cardona, will provide advice on long-term dietary needs. Ms. Cardona can work closely with you to help develop a diet plan after surgery. She is always more than happy to go over which foods and beverages will be best for you and your needs and discuss what vitamins and supplements you may need to take to maintain your health.
The Benefits of Medical Tourism
Since we are located near the San Diego-California border, it is very easy for patients throughout the United States and Canada to travel to our practice. Thanks to medical tourism, you can undergo advanced surgical procedures at a lower cost than you would pay in other places in North America. We have excellent medical tourism packages and payment plans to help you navigate through this process.
All Tijuana Bariatric Center patients receive comprehensive medical tourism insurance to ensure their health and financial security. While our procedures are safe, any bariatric surgery incurs some unforeseen risks. This insurance covers complications that may occur during your bariatric surgery along with additional time you may spend for total recovery. It is part of your bariatric surgery package and incurs no additional cost.
Flexible Financing Options
We know the cost of a procedure can be high, which is why we offer options to help put the surgery within your reach. Our staff will take the time to discuss these financing and payment options with you by phone or email.
How Can I Get Started?
Upon submitting your online application, you will receive a packet of information that includes a link to provide your medical history. This information is critical in determining which procedures may be right for you as our recommendations vary per individual.
Once this has been filled out, your doctor and our team of medical professionals will review your application and history, make any necessary observations, and determine whether you are eligible for surgery. After approval, our bariatrics staff will schedule your appointment, and you will fly to San Diego International Airport.
Arriving in Tijuana
The Tijuana Bariatric Center team handles your care from the moment you land at San Diego Airport until your departure. A designated driver will chauffeur you to your hotel in Tijuana, where you can relax for the first night. The morning after your arrival, you will visit the hospital to undergo several pre-operative tests and to meet with your support staff, consisting of your bariatric surgeon, internist medical doctor, anesthesiologist, and follow-up care doctors prior to your scheduled bariatric surgery.
After your surgery, you will remain at the hospital for one to three nights to monitor your progress. During this time, your doctors and nutritionist will visit to advise you on proper post-op care and diet, as well as provide information about the tests you will need to undergo at your follow-up exams. Once your doctors approve you for discharge, you will spend one to two final nights at the hotel before a driver takes you back to the San Diego Airport.
