Dr. Topete Obesity Clinic specializes in bariatric surgery, and combines expert surgery with years of experience and high quality facilities. The clinic operates out of two accredited hospitals in Mexico City, Hospital CAMI and HMG Hospital Coyoacán, which both have ICUs (intensive care units) available for extra peace of mind. The clinic is led by an internationally-trained surgeon, who has worked both in Mexico and abroad, including in the USA.

The clinic offers a range of services for international patients, including online doctor consultations (via Skype), all-inclusive package prices, discounts on multiple procedures and private rooms. In addition, the hospital allows one family member or friend to stay overnight in the patient’s room with no additional charge.


Dr. Topete Obesity Clinic is located in Mexico City, 4 km or an approximate 5-minute drive from Mexico City Airport. The clinic is also close to the TAPO bus terminal in central Mexico City, which is well-connected to other Mexican states and cities.

The team can also operate on patients in their smaller clinic in Mazatlán, a resort town in the Mexican state of Sinaloa, if that is more convenient for patients travelling for their medical care.

The clinic location in Mexico City is close to several useful amenities, including popular restaurants and cafes, convenience stores, ATMs and even several beautiful green spaces and parks that offer a chance to relax in the busy city.

Gastric Balloon Treatment

+ More
  • Gastric ballon treatment involves inserting a deflated ballon into the stomach and then inflating it, in order to help lose weight. The balloon serves the purpose of limiting food intake by taking up space in the stomach and thus creating a sense of fullness after eating small amounts of food.

  • 1 - 5 days

    Patients may experience some pain, nausea or discomfort in the first days after insertion, therefore may need to rest before traveling.
