DR. ROBERTO RUMBAUT
Dr. Roberto Rumbaut pioneered and perfected laparoscopic gastric surgery in Latin America. He was the first surgeon to perform the laparoscopic gastric bypass in Mexico and is one of the few certified surgeons in Latin America performing Robotic Obesity Surgery with the Da Vinci Robot. Dr. Rumbaut attended one of the most prestigious medical schools in Mexico and mastered bariatric surgery with one of the fathers of the laparoscopic Lap-Band procedure, Dr. Franco Favretti at the University of Padova, Italy. Dr. Rumbaut has performed over 8,500 bariatric procedures in his 24-year career and is actively involved in several research projects with Dr. Santiago Horgan at the UDSD Bariatric and Metabolic Institute.
Having served as President of the Mexican Society of Obesity Surgery and currently an active Professor of Surgery at the prestigious School of Medicine ITESM in Monterrey, Mexico, Dr. Rumbaut opened the Obesity Surgery Center in 2001 to solve obesity and metabolic disorders through a personalized holistic approach involving your mind, body, and soul. Additionally, Dr. Rumbaut is one of the few bariatric surgeons with extensive experience in revision surgery, allowing him to treat difficult cases that other bariatric surgeons are not prepared to touch. Under his direction, his surgical team has been working together for more than 15 years with the highest success rate in the industry thanks to his medical team of specialized physicians. Obesity Surgery Center’s multidisciplinary team of surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, cardiologists, psychologists, nutritionists, and physical trainers will review your case in depth and provide a tailored solution especially for you. In addition to his busy private practice and thanks to his remarkable skills and experience, Dr. Roberto Rumbaut has trained hundreds of bariatric surgeons in minimally invasive Lap-Band placement throughout Latin America and the United States.
Dr. Rumbaut and his highly specialized bariatric team understand that diets do not work for everybody and many people who suffer from obesity find it impossible to reach their ideal weight without a medical help. Research and innovation are at the core of Obesity Surgery Center and Dr. Roberto Rumbaut will review each case individually to design a holistic plan with medical, psychological, nutritional, and physical support to maximize weight-loss and reduce possible complications.
