So, You’re Considering Surgery in the Lake Chapala Ajiji Area?

January 6, 2009

I’ve had several people ask about the quality of care here and I always tell them it’s GREAT.

But recently, I had a question about a possible Gall Bladder operation. The question was,”Are the doctors in nearby Guadalajara still using the older invasive type surgery or do they use the better non invasive type?”

My first thought was… well I know that many of the doctors here go to the USA or other countries for advanced studies, but was not for sure on this particular procedure.

After some research, I discovered that Yes, Yes, Yes they are not only aware of this procedure for the gall bladder, but also for various other previous invasive surgeries as well.

OK, before I go on I want to give you my disclaimer. The rest of this article was gathered off the Internet website of the doctors referred to below and I have no personal knowledge of these doctors.
