Dr. Jaime Ponce de Leon



Dr. Jaime Ponce de Leon is a Certified Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgeon practicing surgery for the past 19+ years currently practicing in Tijuana, Mexico

He's received his Medical Doctor Degree in 1991 from Saint Nicholas University in the Mexican State of Hidalgo as a General Surgeon. After that, he made a 4 year residency in Tijuana's General Hospital where he obtained his speciality as a gastroenterologist surgeon. By 1995, Dr. Ponce is certified to practice laparoscopic surgery, which is what many people refer to as keyhole surgery, it is a minimally invasive type of surgery, generally performed in the abdomen and pelvic area that leaves little or no scarring and patients generally go home the next day.

He got his certification from the Mexican Association of Endoscopic Surgery in 1997, and since then he has attended many courses as a student and also as a teacher, earning the respect from his peers, as well as his patients. Dr. Ponce is so well-respected for his ability and technique that he frequently is invited to speak at surgical events. He is recognized as one of the best bariatric surgeons in northwestern Mexico.

Dr. Ponce started Bariatric Surgery with Laparoscopy in 1998 when he got his Certification from the Mexican Association of General Surgeons. He later learned various techniques from courses he took in the United States and France. He received authorization to perform Obesity Surgery with Gastric Bypass and Lap-Band from the Mexican Society of Obesity Surgeons in 2004 after having received formal training and authorization in 2001 directly from Bio Centrics Corporation. Dr. Ponce is currently Chief Surgeon at various Baja Hospitals, and Mexico Extreme Makeover. He performs an average of 4 to 6 surgeries per day and he has a very high rate of success.
