"From the first time I contacted the hospital the staff was very kind. Answered all my questions. Made me feel safe and comfortable before I even arrived. They had all transportation arranged both ways. The hospital was quiet and clean almost like a resort. My surgery went perfect. I had a great team and would recommend them to any one." Hidi, an Oasis of Hope Patient
Am I a good candidate for this surgery?
In order to undergo gastric sleeve surgery, you should have a body mass index (or BMI) of over 30 and under 50.
Patients who have already undergone gastric bypass surgery are not good candidates for this procedure.
Patients who have had a heart attack or suffer from a heart condition may be disqualified from this surgery.
Weight Status: Overweight
We can connect you with our patient care coordinator. If you are eligible for bariatric surgery, your procedure can be scheduled within two weeks.
Although preparing for gastric sleeve surgery will vary from patient to patient, the process usually consists of six simple steps:
When you contact us via phone or e-mail, we will put you in touch with our patient coordinator.
You will be asked to fill out a medical history form to help our team evaluate whether you are a good candidate for bariatric surgery.
Within 24 hours of submitting your forms, we will inform you whether you have been approved as well as answer any outstanding questions.
When you are approved, we will schedule your surgery and ask you to pay a deposit of $500.
We will put you in touch with our diet consultant, who will provide a detailed dietary plan.
What happens during the surgery?
During gastric sleeve surgery, part of your stomach is removed to reduce your caloric intake.
On the day of surgery, our anesthesiologist Dr. Oscar Contreras will place you under anesthesia to ensure that you are fully asleep during your surgery.
Although the length of your procedure will vary, most gastric sleeve surgeries are completed within one and a half hours.
Following your surgery, you will spend four nights at our hospital. Every room is equipped with Netflix, a companion bed, and private bathroom for your comfort.
The results? Life-changing.
