Bariatric Surgery

Weight-loss surgery is an elective procedure that helps people lose weight by making changes to the digestive system. Weight-loss surgery is usually not covered by U.S. healthcare systems or Health Canada and individuals need to pay out of pocket for these treatments, which can be as high as $30,000 USD. With Health & Wellness Bazaar, traveling to Mexico for Weight-loss surgery is safe and easy and can save you up to 80% on the total cost of treatment, even including travel expenses.
Bariatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the causes, prevention, and treatment of obesity. Overweigh and obesity are a rising concern in the United States, Canada, and Mexico due to their detrimental health effects. Individuals with a BMI (Body Mass Index) exceeding a healthy range have much greater risks of medical issues like heart disease, high-blood pressure, diabetes, gallbladder disease, gout, cancer, asthma, obstructive sleep apnea, and chronic musculoskeletal problems.
Often times, overweight individuals find it difficult to lose weight on their own after having tried many failed diets and not being able to exercise regularly. The poor physical mobility experienced by obese people is the result of pain in their hips and knees caused by the overweight in their body. Ironically, these individuals cannot lose weight with exercise due to their orthopedic problems and cannot resolve their joint pain without losing weight. If you have had little or no success with diets and other non-surgical treatments, and fall within the range of acceptable operative risks, our bariatric surgeons will help you achieve your weight goals.
