  1. Awesome post, thanks. Been trying to lose weight with the Cambridge diet these past couple of months and it’s going amazingly well. Will try and update soon to let you know how it’s going, so far I’ve lost 25 pounds in 4 months!

  2. Hello,
    I was not the one that invented the Lapband procedure but one of the first doctors in Mexico to per for the procedure for treating obesity.
    I also was the first doctor in doing a Gastric Sleeve in Mexico but also I did not invented the procedure.

  3. I just left a letter to Dr Rodriguez on the page that talks about lapband surgery in Mexico. After I sent my letter…. it said awaiting moderation. I am not sure what this means. Do I need to redo my letter?

  4. Hello Georgeann,
    It was great to talk to you today!
    I have already answer your questions and you can call me back tomorrow if you still need to talk with me.

  5. Hi Dr. Rodriquez!!:)

    This is Tracy from Canada:)

    I have, I believe, a Johnson band, and have had it filled to 11 cc, which is overload, but before that, I did not lose enough. Band worked great at this level for 1.5 yrs. Now the restriction does not feel the same and I can eat more. When I get filled, I feel, and have lots of experience at it, as I had my band placed by you in 2008, that the band is filled. However, it does not seem to be restricting. I have recently had it studied by fluoroscopic procedure twice. The first time was with chalk to view it, and results were band is fine. Second was by Bariatric specialist and fill Dr., and they said band is fine as well. My Dr. will not put more than the 11 cc in. Do you know of people who require more fluid to restrict as time goes on and would it be safe to go to 11.5 cc? Also, the specialist asked me if my fill doctor uses huber needles, and I did not know. Is the use of huber needle completely necessary, as my research online on one webite says statistically there is no damage caused by other needle types.

    I may have to come back to see you for help. Can you give me any sort of cost base for you to look at the band, and repair as necessary? I am scheduld for a fill on Jan. 24, and will really watch for the yellowing of fluid, but I do not think this is the case.
