Bariatric surgery consists in making changes on the digestive system to help with weight loss, reducing the risk of medical problems associated with obesity. In other words, bariatric surgery contributes to weight loss.

I am a certified general surgeon from La Universidad el Bosque. I received my training in bariatric surgery in 2002 in Brazil and the USA. In SADI-S I trained at the San Carlos Hospital in Madrid, Spain, where this technique was developed.

I have 26 years of experience in laparoscopic surgery and 21 years of experience in bariatric surgery where I have performed more than 9,600 successful procedures.

I am currently Proctor for Latin America of Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgery at Jhonson & Jhonson, training Surgeons from: Ecuador, Venezuela, Peru, Brazil, Panama, Bolivia, among others. I am the Coordinator of the Bariatric Surgery Program at the Reina Sofía Clinic, where I perform Gastric Bypass procedures, SADI-S, Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve) and Revision Surgeries for complications or failures in the results.

In several of my procedures I operate with 2 bariatric surgeons with extensive experience, Dr. Valencia and Dr. Jiménez, with whom I constitute a team widely recognized in Latin America.

Additionally, I have a multidisciplinary team for the evaluation of my patients that has specialists in the management of obese patients: Nutrition, Internal Medicine, Psychiatry, Pulmonology, Endocrinology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Gastroenterology, Cardiology, Anesthesiology and Plastic Surgery.
