About Certified Bariatric Surgeons
Dr. Huacuz and his Surgical Team
At Certified Bariatric Surgeons in Tijuana, Mexico, Dr. Daniel Huacuz offers bariatric surgery to traveling patients in a convenient locale. We are proud to combine affordable care performed with an unfailing adherence to safety standards. All procedures take place in a state-of-the-art hospital, and we use advanced laparoscopic techniques to perform minimally invasive surgery. Our team will also provide complete follow-up care. International patients will spend a few nights in a nearby hotel so that we can monitor their healing and progress before they return home.
Thanks to our location, our care is both convenient and reasonably priced.
Areas of Expertise
At Certified Bariatric Surgeons, we perform a wide range of weight loss procedures. Because of its proven success rate and low risk for complications, our doctor often recommends gastric sleeve surgery. During this procedure, the surgeon will remove a portion of the stomach to reduce the amount of food a patient can eat at one time. Dr. Huacuz also performs a number of revision bariatric surgeries. Most frequently, he converts the LAP-BAND® System to gastric sleeve. In this way, he can help patients achieve more dramatic weight loss.
Our surgeon is unique because he not only performs bariatric surgery but also offer body contouring after massive weight loss. After reaching a stable weight, many patients struggle with sagging, stretched skin. During an arm lift, thigh lift, or tummy tuck, our doctor can eliminate the excess skin to give patients a trimmer, healthier look. Often, Dr. Huacuz can combine body contouring procedures in a full body lift.
Rigorous Safety Standards
During all bariatric and body contouring surgeries, our doctor adheres to the strictest safety protocol. All procedures take place a nearby hospital that follows the same standards as medical facilities in the U.S. We also use laparoscopic technology to reduce recovery time and surgical risks. Laparoscopes are small lighted cameras attached to flexible tubes. With these tools, our doctor can access the stomach and small intestine through tiny incisions. After the procedure, scarring will be negligible.
Specially Adapted for International Patients
Most of our patients travel to Tijuana from out of the country. Dr. Huacuz chose to establish his practice here because he could offer more affordable care. At the same time, we are close to the U.S. border and easily accessible from the San Diego airport. Our office is located in one of the best neighborhoods in Tijuana with plenty of shopping centers and hotels near the hospital. Thanks to our location, our care is both convenient and reasonably priced.
We offer special services to accommodate our traveling patients. After their procedures, patients usually stay two nights in the hospital. Then they spend an additional two to three nights in a nearby hotel. With this close proximity to our office, we can monitor patients’ recovery and address any concerns that may arise. After our patients return home, we will conduct all follow-up appointments over the phone. We are always available to answer questions.
To help make our patients’ weight loss goals a reality, we offer a number of financing options. Often, bariatric surgery is partially covered by insurance. Our office staff will inquire about coverage and make sure that our patients get the most from their healthcare plans. We also offer third-party financing through myMedicalloan.com, MedChoice Financial™, and Medicard®.
