arriving to the airport in Monterrey, Mexico or Reynosa, Mexico, you will travel
through customs as everyone else. You must make sure you have
a driver's license and birth certificate or a current passport.
The airport is very easy and there are English speaking people
that work there. You will go to baggage claim, then through a
glass door. When you reach this point we will have a chauffeur
standing there, with your name on a board-your lapband procedure
is close at hand.
chauffeur will carry your luggage to the car and bring you to
the hospital, where your lapband procedure will be performed,
or your hotel depending on your prior arrangements. If you go
to the hotel, someone from our office will call you to make sure
you have everything you need and then pick you up and take you
to the hospital, where your gastric lapband surgery will be performed.

be accompanied through admissions (you will need your driver's
license) and then you will go to your room. Dr. Rodriguez will
be notified of your arrival and he will meet you either at your
hotel room or hospital room.

or eat anything after 9 PM. We want you to relax and take it easy
that evening. There is TV in the room and a wonderful café
in the hospital if you get hungry.

blood and place the I.V. in your hand. They will attach the monitors
to you and then you will be taken into the operating room.Once

up at the hotel. They will take you to the airport two hours
before your flight. It is important to allow extra time at the
