I went to LTVSG in Tjuana, Mexico. Dr Maytorena at the JLP Surgery Center. Let me start by saying this place is terrific. I had a previous gastric bypass done back in 1996 by a USA Doctor. About 9 years ago my weight started coming back on. Before I had my gastric bypass I was weighing 350 lbs. After my bypass I got down to 150 lbs. So I went to my regular doctors and had X-rays done and discovered a row of my staples had come out. My family has a history of high blood pressure, gout, thyroid and cancer. So with my weight coming back on it scared me something awful. So I wanted to have my gastric bypass repaired. But my insurance refused to pay for any revision surgery. So I started researching an I came across LTVSG in Mexico. The reason I went with them was because of the price. And they said they do revision surgery. And I'm so glad I did, because Dr Maytorena is a miracle surgeon. I had complications with my surgery because of so much scar tissue from my previous gastric bypass. I had a leak and infection. But Dr M and his staff took such excellent care of me. They had to cut me open to get to the leak but I already had a long scar on my stomach from my previous gastric bypass so I didn't care not one bit. They were so caring. From his nurses, his extra doctors, his anesthesiologist everyone of his staff was so great!!! These people treated me as though I was family. They made sure that I was never in any pain. His nurses took care of me 24 hours. The facility was clean. Not to mention they gave me cable tv. Dr Maytorena came by on a regular basis just to check in to see if I was healing ok. I can't give this man enough thanks or praises for doing such a wonderful job on me. And his staff. When I went in for surgery I was weighing 250 lbs and now I weigh 196lbs. And I'm steadily losing weight everyday. My goal is to get back down to 150lbs. I would suggest anyone who's looking to get a sleeve done go to Dr M, they are going to take excellent care of you. Not to mention don't worry if you don't speak Spanish because his staff does know English. I highly recommend LTVSG. I'm very satisfied with my results. Thank you Dr Maytorena ,God Bless you and your staff

Approaching 1 year

Hello everyone it's been a while since I've been up here. I'm 11 months in and I'm currently weighing in at 165lbs. I'm very happy with my results. My weight loss has slowed down but it's my inches that are coming off every week. My final goal is 150lbs . And I'm not far from it, I'm now wearing a size 14 and my final goal is to wear a size 12. It's been great going shopping and not worrying about if clothes will fit me, because everything fits just right now! I'm thankful and grateful to Dr Maytorena and his staff for working so hard for me. God bless

Amazing and gifted Doctor!!

I had surgery with Doctor Maytorena in October of 15. My results were excellent. He and his staff are amazing to say the least. My surgery was a little complicated because I went in for revision surgery. Most doctors won't touch you if another doctor worked on you. But they didn't mind whatsoever. I was nervous but they made my stay there comfortable. I had a leak and they worked hard to fix it ,also from  my pervious gastric bypass (which they confirmed they had never seen done like that

before) they went in and fixed my stomach the way that it was suppose to be! I was scared and nervous but Dr M's beside manner is amazing. His staff speaks English as well so you don't have to worry about a language barrier. The facility is clean and very safe. You can't just walk in ,you have to be buzzed in by there staff and they have to know that your there for surgery. His nurses are 24 hours and check on you constantly to make sure your not in pain. When he left for the day he still called in to his staff to check in on his patients. The surgery room is very warm and inviting and they have music playing. When I came out of surgery, I had very little pain, but I was hooked up to pain medicine all the time. There recovery house was beautiful ,I had a private room with once again 24 hour care and cable tv with so many channels. I can't praise him and his staff enough. And the price is just right!!!  Also they picked me up from the airport and transported me to there facility and took me back. There driver Annette is a sweetheart. Believe me if your considering a gastric sleeve you can't go wrong with Dr Maytorena. Go to there website and give them a call you won't be sorry. God Bless you Dr Maytorena and your staff.
