Dr. Juan Francisco Hidalgo is a highly trained, trusted bariatric surgeon who specializes in using minimally invasive surgery techniques to perform weight loss surgery that provides for a faster and superior recovery for his patients. Dr. Hidalgo has years of extensive experience treating obesity, helping patients who suffer from this illness and helping each and every one achieve the best possible result and goal weight. Dr. Hidalgo has performed thousands of successful bariatric surgeries, including on patients who are not considered candidates at other practices, due to extremely high BMI’s (up to 80), revision surgery type, or many other reasons that lesser qualified bariatric doctors choose not to help these patients in need. He and his team of surgeons have received specialized training in bariatrics and laparoscopic procedures and he is one of the only doctors in Puerto Vallarta that performs the Single Incision Gastric Sleeve. His exceptional technical skill in a number of modalities allows for him to meet a wide array of patient’s needs.
