Dr. Michel’s bariatric center is located in a newly built world-class medical facility equipped with state-of-the-art technology and latest patient safety protocols, meeting domestic and international quality standards. When Dr. Alberto Michel and his father decided to open a surgery center dedicated to the treatment of obesity and metabolic diseases they set the goal to become the weight-loss center in Mexico with highest success rates and patient satisfaction. To achieve this ambitious goal they put together a multidisciplinary team of experienced professionals to address all aspects of obesity in order to ensure high success rates.
