description

For 13 years, I have served as head of bariatric surgery at the Remedios de Cali clinic, performing 7,100 procedures on obesity patients with the lowest morbidity and mortality rate in Latin America, according to reports from the International Federation of Bariatric Surgery. (IFSO), which has allowed us to gain the trust of the different health entities in our city such as: Sura, Nueva EPS, comfenalco, suramericana, SOS, Emsanar, Coosalud, Colmedica, Coomeva, Colpatria, Ecopetrol. 

 

Similarly, we have published seven papers in the journals: Colombian de cirugia, Obesyty surgery and BMI (bariatrica metabolica iberoamericana), which has allowed us to participate as a guest lecturer in the last world gastric sleeve congress held in New York City on last December 2010. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVjUQI86UlQ. 

I currently have international recognition from the comprehensive obesity care center (Total Patient Care), based at the ABC hospital in Mexico City, where our training as an interdisciplinary work group for obese patients was certified.
