Obesity Surgery at the Monterrey Gastric & Bariatric Group Mexico


Obesity Surgery at the Monterrey Gastric & Bariatric Group reaches a new milestone by successfully treating patients from the US and Canada


olorado, 27th Nov, 2016: The rising cost of bariatric surgery and increasing medical complications associated with obesity has led to people looking for treatment plans available outside the US. According to CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), one-third (36.5%) of U.S. adults have obesity. A National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey revealed that almost 3 in 4 men (74 percent) in the US are either overweight or obese.

In light of increasing severity of medical conditions caused by obesity and over-weight amongst people in the US and Canada, PlacidWay, one of the leading medical tourism providers in the world offers a medical solution to patients through its service partner in Mexico, the Monterrey Gastric & Bariatric Group.

The Monterrey Gastric & Bariatric Group (MG & BG) located in Monterrey, Mexico is a renowned obesity surgery center, which offers its patients a proven and comprehensive bariatric program including a personalized treatment plan.

Pramod Goel, CEO of PlacidWay said: "This is a significant step towards PlacidWay's expansion plans. It will not only enable patients from across the US and Canada to find a low cost medical solution but also strengthens our global position as one of the leading medical tourism company. Patients will have access to a variety of weight loss surgeries like mini gastric bypass and gastric balloon."

The most important aspect of this tie-up of PlacidWay with the Monterrey Gastric & Bariatric Group is that patients from the US and Canada will have quick access to weight loss solutions at an affordable price. This will not only unlock the future potential of weight loss surgical solutions but also provide a deeper perspective to addressing the rapidly growing epidemic of obesity problems in the region.

Dr. Francisco J. Barrera Rodríguez, Bariatric Surgeon at the Monterrey Gastro & Bariatric Group, said: "Monterrey Gastric & Bariatric Group has an excellent reputation in the healthcare and medical tourism market of Mexico. Obesity is a complex disease that requires a multidisciplinary team that provides prevention, education, treatment and follow-up. Our approach and constant monitoring enables us to provide quality care during post op for every patient, which is mirrored in the excellent results achieved by our patients."

MG-BG and PlacidWay share the same mission, which is of granting cross border patients access to high-quality, efficient, and safe medical care. Monterrey has been one of the most approachable major city in Mexico and now thanks to technology and high quality medical care; it is becoming a top destination for bariatric surgeries. As a result of this strategic tie-up, PlacidWay will now be able to provide full-service weight loss solutions from a single convenient as well as secure platform.

Dr. Barrera Rodriguez believes that if MG-BG can maintain the superior quality of medical attention as well as competitive costs then this will lead to rapidly addressing patient’s needs who are seeking cheaper but reliable options for weight loss problems.

Although, obesity and overweight are burning issues in the healthcare industry but weight loss surgical options as offered by MG-BG can and will bring down the rising cost concern and also address the issue in an effective way in the near future.
