Has you Health Insurance Provider Denied you for a Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

Don't worry now you can get Life-Changing Results with Master Bariatric Surgeon, Dr. Guillermo Alvarez

With more the 17,000 patients achieving the weight loss they wanted after Bariatric surgery, Dr. Guillermo Alvarez and his team have many reasons to hold their heads high. These patients dreamed of a chance at life and, with bariatric surgery, they have just that plus a beautiful body and a better relationship with food.

To top off the countless journeys Dr. Alvarez helped set forth, he is also internationally certified as one of the six Master Bariatric Surgeons in Mexico.
The author of six books about the Gastric Sleeve process, as well holding certification by the Mexican College of Surgery for Obesity and Metabolic Diseases (CMCOEM) and internationally for ASMBS, IFSO and SAGES, Dr. Alvarez takes great pride in leading his patients to a healthier, better life with a more active lifestyle.

So, What Exactly is a Gastric Sleeve?

When choosing bariatric surgery, it’s important to know your options and what is best for your body, health, and future goals. A Gastric Sleeve procedure involves removing 70% to 80% of the stomach. This causes a satiated feeling of full when eating so the patient eats less at meals. By eating fewer calories and feeling satisfied earlier in the meal, it is easier to lose weight. In addition, most of the hormone Ghrelin (better known as "the hunger hormone") is eliminated from the body.

Imagine a world where hunger isn’t a battle; where food becomes fuel rather than an enemy. With a Gastric Sleeve, it’s possible to live an active lifestyle focused on well-being with a healthy relationship with food.

There are other options for bariatric surgery, but the Gastric Sleeve is a simpler procedure than most. Since it doesn't require any reconnection with the intestine or deviation of food to cause malabsorption, it’s safer than a Gastric Bypass or Duodenal Switch. Unlike the adjustable gastric band (Lap-Band), the Gastric Sleeve does not require foreign materials inside your body.

The Gastric Sleeve procedure takes about only 25-minutes with Dr. Guillermo Alvarez and his team.
