  • About Me

    Born and raised in Tijuana in Baja California, Mexico on the border with San Diego, Dr. Pompa explains that growing up so close to the United States has given her practice and patients the best of both worlds: the latest technology in a state of the art hospital that exceeds U.S. standards yet affordable procedures to help more patients with obesity around the world.

    Dr. Pompa (Board Certified, Mexican license #4644046) is an Associate Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery. She was named one of the “Leaders in Bariatric Surgery” by Newsweek magazine and designated as a Center of Excellence surgeon by the U.S. Surgical Review with the distinction of being the first woman to achieve this internationally.
    Dr. Pompa started her medical studies more than a decade ago achieving the prestigious award of academic excellence and later competing for a spot on Surgery Residence among thousands of applicants reaching first place in the Surgical Residency Nationwide Exam.

    Her natural surgical skills and brilliant academic performance were noted during her Surgery Residency at Tijuana’s General Hospital in Mexico, which earned her a rotation as a visiting resident at the world renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where she perfected new and advanced laparoscopic and bariatric surgical techniques. She completed her training overseas at the European Institute of Telesurgery in Strasbourg, France.

    In numerous occasions she has been designated as the professor of Laparoscopic Surgery Training programs, where she has taught novel surgical techniques and performed live exhibition surgery. She is also credited as one of the youngest surgeons to be certified by Allergan and Johnson & Johnson for gastric band placement in her country.

    Not only is she brilliant, but she is also an incredible woman with a great deal of compassion and professionalism and author of the book, "How Much Does Your Life Weigh?" specially created for the bariatric patient.

    Currently, Dr. Pompa is the Medical and Surgical Director of LIMARP, considered one of the top ranking and busiest weight loss surgery centers around the world and recently designated as an International Center of Excellence by the Surgical Review Corporation, a U.S. company and recognized healthcare leader committed to advancing the safety, efficacy, and efficiency of surgical care worldwide.
    Nearly 95% of LIMARP patients, who chose to come to travel to Mexico for surgery, come from the United States and Canada. The rest of Dr. Pompa’s patients are Mexican and from all over the world, including Europe.
