Dr. Carlos Sala is a specialist in General and Digestive Surgery since 1995 with specialized training in the United States.

Morbid obesity is a serious social and health problem.

In our UNIT we have the best specialists, coordinated by Dr. Sala, as well as modern and specific installations necessary for the proper care to these patients. These conditions allow us to be at the forefront of comprehensive treatment of overweight patients and obesity.

Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass
Laparoscopic gastric bypass adds a controlled malabsorption to the gastric reduction, excluding the duodenum from food transit. This is the most widely accepted all over the time procedure of all bariatric techniques, and is considered the Gold Standard. LGB has been the most frequently performed technique in the bariatric surgery world.
Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is the most promising technique. LSG reduces the volume of the stomach and indeed the food intake. It also has a metabolic effect on intestinal hormones (Incretins) that corrects diabetes and improves other comorbidities such as dyslipidemia, hypertension or OSA.
