Dr. Hector Perez Corzo

 

Dr. Hector Perez Corzo is a leading US-trained, board-certified bariatric surgeon in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico. He has been practicing weight loss surgeries since 2006 and has significant global exposure since his educational and professional pursuits have taken him to several South American, North American, and European countries.

Dr. Perez has nearly 0% complications in over 3,000 surgeries performed in 10 years of practice. “Our expectation is to continue at the same rate,” said Dr. Perez while discussing weigh loss surgeries with our marketing head.

He further added: “I was always passionate about helping people to overcome obesity. After my medical internship at the Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida and my four-year residency in Mexico City, I underwent 1-year training in bariatric surgery and decided to come down to Cancun to help those struggling with obesity.”

Dr. Perez is invited by various groups around the country to demonstrate the procedure involved in weight loss surgeries. “Unfortunately, in Mexico there aren’t as many bariatric surgeons as are needed. So many general surgeons are willing to take up weight loss surgeries. Mexico has mere 8-10 well-established programs in bariatrics that aren’t sufficient to absorb the demand for WLS training. I get invited by organizations around the country to teach bariatric surgery,” said the surgeon.
