With 50+ years of combined experience and 25,000 successful bariatric surgeries performed, Obesity Control Center, located in Tijuana, Mexico, is a world leader in weight-loss surgery. The team of international weight loss surgeons offers globalized bariatric healthcare to get the best from around the world.

Obesity Control Center and Dr. Ariel Ortiz are pleased to announce that their team of surgeons has reached more than fifty years of combined experience in completing 25,000 successful bariatric surgeries. The mortality rate for these procedures is zero, with less than .2% infection and complication rate. The IGS Improved Gastric Sleeve® surgery uses modern technology and innovative techniques, following the highest US safety standards and comprehensive post-op support. The Center helps people worldwide reach their weight-loss goals.

Obesity Control Center has multiple board-certified and accredited surgeons from around the globe and a US-based patient-coordinator team. The three master surgeons are revision surgery experts and innovators in surgical procedures, including bypass, sleeve, and band rescue. They are all board-certified and fellowship-trained bariatric surgeons. Throughout the surgeries, the team has trademarked innovations and techniques. The Center is fully accredited with the highest safety standards based on top US medical standards. The result is an extremely low complication and infection rate.

Adults with excess weight are at even greater risk during the COVID-19 pandemic. The link between obesity and COVID-19 has encouraged many overweight individuals to take the proactive step of scheduling weight loss surgery at the Obesity Control Center. Reducing one or more of the risk factors for the Coronavirus may also lower the risk of diabetes and heart disease. Today, advanced technology and products can mean obesity can be controlled.
