"I had my Sleeve Gastrectomy done in January of 2018. I was astounded at how fast I recovered from the surgery. I am even more amazed at how fast I started losing weight. I feel great and have had no medical issues since my discharge from Oasis. I’ve lost around 40 pounds in 6 months since the surgery and I feel great. My knees stopped hurting, I feel good after eating and I have a lot more energy. My kids are happy that I’m much more active and for once I feel like life is good !! Thanks Dr. Gonzales"

I was very pleased and had a wonderful experience. Dr. Gonzalez and his staff are top notch. They are highly educated and skilled medical professionals. They were so caring and gentle. They always explained everything and told me if I had any questions to let them know. The facility is modern and beautiful. My room was very accommodating, spacious and attractive. They even provide a personal safe for your money or passport. I would highly recommend oasis of hope bariatrics to anybody considering bariatric surgery.

Everyone was so nice and friendly! They genuinely care about your well-being and your health is always #1 to them. I spoke to at least 2 doctors, 4 nurses and the coordinator and nutritionist once a day. Everyone is so eager to watch you succeed. The rooms are comfortable and they bring your food to the rooms, I brought my mom as my guest and they had a whole bed in the room for her with me and the bathroom looks like a hotel bathroom, very comfortable and clean.  They have a cafeteria with vegan food and I personally couldn’t eat it but my mom loved it and it smelled amazing. Definitely a 10/10 experience. I highly recommend it.

Oasis of Hope Recognized for Our Patient Care 

Medical Tourism An Increasingly Popular Option

Bariatric surgeries like gastric sleeve surgery or gastric bypass surgery can offer life-changing benefits. However, in some countries, the cost of weight loss surgery is prohibitively expensive. That is why an increasing number of patients are turning to medical tourism.

In 2017, according to the American Journal of Medicine, more than 1.4 million Americans traveled abroad to receive medical care, and that number is expected to increase by 25 percent every year.

At Oasis of Hope Bariatrics in Tijuana, Mexico, we offer an enticing medical tourism package that offers more than financial benefits. We hope to make your experience with bariatric surgery feel as much like a luxurious vacation as possible. Our resort-like bariatric campus features:

  • Spa-like amenities
  • Private room and private bathroom for you and a companion
  • Relaxing outdoor spaces
  • Two security checkpoints
  • Sunday service on Sunday mornings
