Dr. Cabrera, a Mexico Bariatric Center Surgeon, now is one of the five Bariatric & Metabolic Board Certified Surgeons in Tijuana, Mexico.

Dr. Ismael Cabrera Garcia met the strict requirements to receive his specialty board certification in Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery. His credentials were examined and verified by standards of excellence in the field of bariatric surgery by the distinguished Mexican College of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgeons (CMCOEM). Dr. Ismael Cabrera is an accomplished weight loss surgeon in Tijuana, Mexico providing surgical care to patients from Europe, Canada, and the United States. 

“The Metabolic and Bariatric Certification is absolutely instrumental in the optimal care of the bariatric surgery patient,” Ron Elli, Ph.D. The certification is to achieve one goal: to improve the health and welfare of the patients. The best care is given by a board-certified surgeon, as it is:

  • Decreasing readmission

  • Decreasing complications

  • Better failure to rescue rate

Dr. Ismael Cabrera will continue to offer the highest standards of surgical care to his patients as outlined by Mexican College of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery. Since 2009, Dr. Cabrera has performed over 4,000 bariatric surgeries, including Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve), Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass, Gastric Mini-Bypass, and complex Revisional Surgeries to rescue failed and unsuccessful weight loss surgeries. 

Dr. Cabrera has close to a zero complication rate and has outstanding patient outcomes. He is so highly trusted by his own colleagues, that the leading bariatric surgeon at MBC, Dr. Louisiana Valenzuela, had Dr. Cabrera perform her life-changing gastric sleeve surgery (VSG) in December of 2016. He performs on average, no more than, 3 surgeries a day for the maximum safety of the patients.

Kevin Ayala Former Gastric Sleeve Patient of Dr. Ismael Cabrera Turned Bodybuilder 

Recently, a former patient of Dr. Ismael Cabrera transformed himself completely. While following dietary and exercise guidelines, Kevin Ayala managed to transform his appearance (view his transformation video here). At the age of 24, Kevin went into surgery weighing 300.7 pounds at a BMI of 45.7, putting him in the “Extremely Obese” weight range. By the age of 26, he’d dropped his weight down to 162 pounds at a BMI of 23.2, putting him in the “Normal” weight range. He made such a remarkable change in his physique that he was able to step onto the stage at a bodybuilding competition and show his results with pride.

When asked about his experience with Dr. Ismael Cabrera, Kevin stated, “Dr. Cabrera and his staff were very informative throughout the entire process.  They carried himself with the utmost level of professionalism.  If I had to do the surgery again, I would definitely choose Dr. Cabrera.” You can view more about Kevin Ayala on the Mexico Bariatric Center blog.
