“Before you get to Cancun, you are going receive an email from the transportation service, where they are going to explain you how they will pick you up at the airport, where to be at. They will take you to your hotel.
The next morning, they will bring you to your check up at the hospital with myself and my team. They are going to do all the pre-op work – EKG, chest x-ray, draw some blood and you will have a medical evaluation, nutritionist, psychiatrist, everything. Then as soon as we get clearance of all the evaluations for your surgery, we will take you to the OR, do your bariatric surgery and usually you stay for two nights at the hospital. After that, you get discharged, two days after surgery. But before getting discharged, we do something called in bariatric surgery leaking test.
What we are going to do is, we are going to give you a blue dye, that you have to drink that we will check the drain for no leaks but also, we are going to an x-ray – live, dynamic x-ray where you will see your new stomach, how it works, how small it is and everything passes through very well, indeed there are no leaks.
After you get discharged, you have two options because this is paradise, you can stay for a couple of days and enjoy Cancun or we have lots of patients, the same day that they get discharged, they fly back home to the United States or Canada.
The places where we get most of our patients are the United States and Canada. But, particularly in Cancun, we get a lot of Canadians coming from Saskatchewan, Calgary, Alberta, even Vancouver and from the United States, we get a lot of patients coming from South Carolina, North Carolina, New York, Washington, Florida, this part of the coast.
But, we get patients from all over the United States and Canada but mostly those parts I was telling.”
