Our Featured Procedures

Gastric Sleeve

Gastric sleeve removes about 80% of a patient's stomach to restrict the amount of food they can consume. Patients typically lose up to 75% of their excess body weight within two years.

Explore Gastric Sleeve

Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass creates a small stomach pouch to restrict the amount of food that can be consumed and reroutes the intestines to restrict the amount of calories the body can absorb. The result is healthy, consistent weight loss. We also offer mini gastric bypass.

Revision Surgery

If you've previously undergone bariatric surgery and you're not getting the results you'd hoped for, Dr. Cabrera can repair the effects of your bariatric surgery, reverse your surgery, or convert it into a procedure that will improve your results.

Paying for Your Care

Bariatric surgery in Mexico is significantly more affordable than it is in the United States and Canada, all without sacrificing quality. Though your medical insurance likely won't apply in Mexico, patients can still expect to spend thousands of dollars less than they would in their home countries.

Our Tijuana bariatric surgery office accepts PayPal, Visa, cash, and traveler's checks so paying for your care is convenient. If you would prefer to pay for your care in low monthly installments, we accept financing through United Medical Credit and eFinancing Solutions.

Unparalleled Care and Experience "Top quality staff and procedures."

I went with a group of people to Dr Cabrera for a revision surgery from Lap band to sleeve. For the entire time I felt safe and cared for, I was kept fully informed at all times and given excellent pre and post op information and support. I found the facility clean and the nursing staff supportive and caring as well. Throughout the entire time Dr Cabrera and his team showed true professionalism, thank you Stop Obesity for offering this service that's appears to be so limited in other parts of the world.
