I had the duodendal switch surgery with Dr. Ponce de Leon on June 14, 2012. I had excellent care at the hospital and the surgical team is awesome. I can say that I had better care in Mexico than I would have at home. The doctors here check on you maybe once or twice in the time you are in hospital. Doctor Ponce checked on me twice a day. I don't think and hour went by with out a nurse checking on me changing IV bags or giving me antibiotics. I was really scared about going to Mexico, I have never left Canada before. I was really impressed. The hospital was spotless, they changed the bedding everyday need it or not. That doesn't happen in manitoba, they change it when you leave unless there is a mess. The only problem I had was my medical guide didn't show up. ( her name was Laurie Wolf aka Laurie Carr) She received the money and only booked the flights. The doctors looked after me and my 2 family members got them the other stuff that was promised me. Also there was another coordinator there who helped us out her name was Trish. I really wish I had booked through her, but it all worked out in the end. Doctor Ponce also gives you a dvd of the surgery. any other questions you can pm me.
ps. I emailed my med guide after I got home, she hasn't replied yet. I don't expect she will
