Great Reviews for Our Specialists Quality Bariatric Procedures in Tijuana, Mexico

Oasis of Hope is a great place for Gastric Sleeve surgery. They are welcoming from the time you are picked up from the airport until you are dropped back off at the airport. They are efficient, friendly, helpful, knowledgable and supportive during the surgical and recovery process. Dr Camelo is the best!! He is professional and personable. He made me feel safe with my decision to undergo gastric sleeve surgery. I am 9 days post OP and can hardly tell I had surgery (the healing incisions are proof). Very, very minimal pain, no nausea. Amazing experience!

My procedure at the Oasis Bariatrics was a wonderful experience for me. I had surgery one month ago and everything went just as they said it would. From the moment they picked me up from the San Diego Airport to the moment they dropped me off every moment was as explained to me. The facility is clean and the staff are warm and attentive. Dr. Gonzalez has a great sense of humor and made me feel at ease knowing he would take good care of me. I have had zero problems and my recovery has been great. I would recommend this facility to anyone who is thinking about having weight loss surgery.

Our Skilled Surgeons Achieve Life-Changing Outcomes

When considering tourism for medical treatment, seeing real results from real patients is important. Below is a small sampling of people who traveled to Oasis of Hope for bariatric surgery:

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

This patient was able to lose a significant amount of weight thanks to gastric sleeve surgery. This procedure removes a portion of the stomach while reshaping the remainder into a sleeve-like tube. The recipient is then able to feel full after eating less food than was previously necessary to feel satiated. 

Learn About Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric Bypass

This patient's proud before-and-after is a great example of the efficacy of our gastric bypass procedure. This bariatric surgery divides both the stomach and small intestine before rerouting the small intestine into a newly formed stomach pouch. This restricts the amount of food your stomach can hold, reduces calorie absorption by your body, and increases feelings of fullness by changing gut hormones.
