In Costa Rica, Mexico and Colombia, obese patients can undergo a mini gastric bypass for $6,000 or £4,000. Bariatric surgeons in Latin America often study in some of the best medical schools in the US and UK, and most doctors and nurses speak English fluently. Hospitals are modern, clean, and equipped with the latest tools for laparoscopic surgery. Before a mini gastric bypass, the doctor will thoroughly examine the patient to make sure he or she is a good candidate for the procedure. The hospital staff will counsel the patient on post-op care, and perform numerous follow-up exams after the operation. Recovery time can be several days to a week. Extending one's stay in Latin America is very affordable since food and lodging are inexpensive.
