    Vertical Sleeve Surgery in Mexico with Dr. Alvarez

    I do one thing very well. I do gastric sleeves. That’s it. Nothing else. No distractions. Nothing to steal my focus. I’m not kidding myself that I can be good at everything, so I don’t try to conquer the whole world. I just conquer my bit of it. So each day I come in and craft the best sleeves, and use the best quality in surgical materials available worldwide. I craft the stomach with an expert eye. And then, ‘The A-Team’ and I, take care of the rest. -Dr. Alvarez
