Obesity Control Center® has one of the most advanced systems and protocols in the industry. Our total and exclusive commitment to weight loss surgeries, all in a premier hospital facility, has separated us from others who seek to step into this arena with lesser resources and skilled surgeons. Having performed more than 12,000 weight loss surgeries, we are the unquestioned world leaders.
For this reason, the OCC was recently designated as an International Center of Excellence by an independent review board that demands its member achieve and maintain only the highest standards of operation. Many American hospitals do not achieve this status, but those that do are considered among the world’s elite.
We share this distinction with such prestigious medical centers as Princeton University Healthcare, New York University, University of California San Diego, UCLA, Washington University, Mount Sinai Hospital, and George Washington University among others.
Part of this achievement and designation is based on our superior pre-surgery protocols, including a full-time expert nutritionist who works closely with each patient for weeks prior to surgery. Her work is of such high quality that she is regularly invited to participate in discussions on the area of bariatric surgery at medical conferences.
Equally impressive is our follow-up program which is considered the best in the industry and unparalleled by any weight loss hospital. You can read more about this extensive and exclusive program in the section on this site entitled Follow-Up Care. This system has been shown to be a key factor in producing extraordinary levels of success in our bariatric surgery Tijuana patients. Thanks to our follow-up program, living a long-term healthy lifestyle is a real possibility for our patients.
But in the end, the most important factor is the skill of the surgeons, the knowledge and expertise of the attending physicians, and the support of the nursing staff. Along with premier hospital facilities, these expert practitioners ensure a positive experience for hundreds of patients that turn to OCC each year.
