This procedure entails the insertion of the endoscope through the mouth and throat into the esophagus, stomach, and the initial segment of the small intestine, known as the duodenum.

Diseases I treat

as an endoscopist

in Mexicali!



A surgical procedure to remove the gallbladder, an organ that stores bile. It is performed when there are gallstones, inflammation or related diseases.



A surgical procedure to repair a hernia, which is the protrusion of an organ or tissue through an opening in the muscle wall that typically contains it, involves repositioning the organ or tissue to its proper location and reinforcing the muscle wall.



A surgical procedure aimed at addressing chronic gastroesophageal reflux. It seeks to correct the malfunctioning lower esophageal sphincter, which permits gastric acids to flow back into the esophagus, leading to heartburn and damage. The surgery may entail repairing the sphincter or, in certain instances, creating a new anti-reflux valve.


Surgical procedures designed to address conditions that impact the colon and rectum, such as hemorrhoids, anal fistulas, colorectal polyps, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and colorectal cancer. These surgeries can vary from the removal of polyps to the resection of segments of the colon or rectum, depending on the specific condition and its severity.



Endoscopic procedures aimed at alleviating inflammation of the stomach lining, which can result from infections, excessive use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, stress, or other factors. This surgery is seldom employed to treat gastritis and is only contemplated in severe and specific cases.


Surgical procedures employed to address inflammation of the colon. This surgery, such as a colectomy, is reserved for severe cases of ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease that do not respond to other treatments and may involve the removal of a portion or the entire colon.


Bariatric surgeries, such as gastric bypass or gastric sleeve, aim to facilitate weight loss and enhance diabetes control. These procedures are designed to enhance metabolic health and mitigate the risks associated with these conditions.

Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding

Endoscopic or surgical procedures employed to stop hemorrhage, which may involve surgery to mend injuries or remove bleeding polyps. The objective is to identify and cease the source of bleeding to avert potential serious complications.
