About VSG

Sleeve Gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss tool in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples, glue and possibly cauterization) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.

  1. hi,,congrats on your sucess,i too am from canada and thinking about Jerusalem hospital for my sleeve,,,i am a little concered about it though,,why is it soo much cheaper than the other hospitals in tijuana,,,would you recommend that hospital? how was your experence? i would love to hear back from you.....thanks, nat

  2. Hi Nat, thanks for your comment. That location is a clinic, not a hospital so that's the main difference in price IMO. In retrospect, I would have preferred a hospital expereince. If you poke thru my tags to the right for the Jerusalem clinic, surgery etc, you should find all of my documentation on the experience I had.
    If you're looking for a great surgeon in a hospital environment, as well as full follow up/follow along with someone who has been down this road before, please check out the company at the top "Weight Loss and Beyond". I'm a client coordinator for that place and everyone involved has your best interests at heart. We even go with you to ensure you're comfortable! If you decide to submit a info request on there, just let them know it was Cheryl that told you about them. They want to keep track of word of mouth vs print advertising :)

    Feel free to send me any other questions, or an email! I wish you luck researching this journey!
