Dr. Alcides Branco has been working with laparoscopic surgery since 1994. From general surgery cases that had been managed laparoscopically to bariatric procedures, his clinic has successfully performed more than 30 thousand laparoscopically surgeries since then.

He is specialized in bariatric and metabolic surgeries, and over the past 21 years, he has operated more than 11 thousand patients.
