Our team of surgeons dedicates themselves to the field of bariatric surgery. Our surgeons are consistently expanding their expertise through verified, and ongoing medical education. They are all board-certified as general surgeons by the highest certifying authority available in Mexico and its equivalent in the United States.
All surgeons have a learning curve. This means it takes time to master a technique before the complication rate decreases and the long-term outcomes are better. At Obesity Control Center our surgeons are not only masters of the techniques they perform, they teach other bariatric surgeons on how to perform safer, more effective procedures. We exceed the SRC Standards of Excellence requirements with over 1000%* of experience. A thorough documentation of each procedure through a medical chart review has been performed by a third party credentialing system.
*Each surgeon is required to have performed at least 80 procedures in a lifetime.
Our team of physician extenders provides education and care to bariatric surgery patients. Our bariatric program coordinator is the liaison between the facility and surgical practice, supervises program development, patient and staff education, interdisciplinary team meetings, and ongoing Centers of Excellence in Bariatric Surgery program compliance.
Our patient care doesn’t start when you see the doctors, it starts from the moment you first contact us. That is why, unlike other companies, we do not work with brokers. We hire our own coordinators and work hand in hand with them to provide you the best and most personalized attention possible. Our coordinators work only with OCC and are all patients themselves. Our coordinators are well prepared to answer all your questions regarding your surgery and, when necessary, or at the patient’s request, can arrange phone consults with our surgical team to provide you the best service.
