Has anyone here heard of a Dr. Joya in Puerta Vallarta? He is advertising on his website a total package of $9.750.00 for air , hotel, tests, surgery, and hospital. If you sign up before the end of this month. Does this sound fishy?

This is strictly a personal, unscientific opinion. I looked at the site and read most of the material. 3 deaths in 1100 surgeries is a little on the scary side - the most commonly given average for this kind of surgery is 1 in a thousand. But the price is excellent, and the DS looks to me to be a better procedure than the RNY in some ways - it is less of a disruption of the natural state of affairs, there's no dumping, and the weight loss seems comparable to plain RNY. But DS is a much more difficult procedure to perform, there's more post-op pain (vs lap-RNY), a longer recovery, and higher risk of complications and death. And it's a long plane ride, at . I'm already committed to lap-RNY in about two weeks, but what I've learned about DS, and the low cost of offshore surgery, makes me seriously want to reconsider my options....

Had surgery with Dr Joya and he was excellent - as was his staff. Hospital was clean , up to date and wonderfully staffed. Much better than any hospital I've ever been to in America. Faye Davis [email protected]
