I would recommend this practice go anyone seeking bariatric surgery. Dr. Lopez and the hospital staff at Hospital Guadalajara were great, and my coordinator Sandra was awesome. I felt safe the entire time and the hotel staff at the Marriott provided the best service Ive ever had at a hotel. No regrets here.

Turn Your Surgery into a Vacation

Many of our patients choose to emphasize the "tourism" in medical tourism. Tijuana, Guadalajara, and Puerto Vallarta are all beautiful destinations full of exciting dining options, sightseeing opportunities, and cultural experiences. If you'd like, you can choose to arrive a day or two before your procedure so that you can take some time to explore and make memories.

We will organize your hotel and hospital reservations and make sure that you are picked up from the airport by a reliable chauffeur.

"The absolute best place for weight loss surgery. The Doctors are very knowledgeable,  nice and very clean. I weighed 285 and couldn't loose weight. Now 7 months out I weigh 155lbs. My life has changed completely and I owe it to ALO Bariatric.  The hospital is very clean. All the staff they have working are very friendly. Thanks for my life change and for making me look GOOD" Leora Mae, 5-Star Google Review
