Dr. Adolfo León Uribe Mesa
I am an active member of the Clinic of the Americas of Medellin Colombia for 25 years, where I practice as a member of the General Surgery and Laparoscopic Surgery Group; I have my office in the Medical Tower and I am also part of the Digestive Endoscopy Unit of the same institution. I am also linked to the Endoscopy Units of the VID Diagnostic Clinic and Las Vegas Clinic (Gastroestudio). I am an adhonorem Teacher of the Minimally Invasive Surgery Area of the CES University.
I studied General Medicine at the University of Antioquia (1981). I worked with CES University becoming its Head of Medical Education (1988). I did studies of General Surgery with this same University, obtaining the title in 1992. To date I have worked with the CES, with the General Hospital of Medellín and with the Manuel Uribe Ángel de Envigado Hospital. I did Digestive Endoscopy at the San Martín University Foundation; I trained in Double Balloon Enteroscopy in the Bogotá Police Clinic and in Endoscopic Capsule in the Marly Clinic in the same city.
I have been dedicated to Laparoscopic Surgery since my association as an active member of Clínica Las Américas for 25 years; I hold a degree in Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery from the CES University, which accredits me to do all kinds of minimally invasive procedures. I have focused especially in the area of obesity surgery (Bariatric) and for this I have my own service where I attend with the greatest respect, dedication and professionalism. For bariatric surgery, I did training at the Cleveland Clinic in Weston, Florida and at the Multidisciplinary Bariatric Clinic at the Dos Fornecedores de Caña Hospital in Piracicaba, Brazil. Additionally, with Dr. Roberto Fogel, Gastroenterologist, in Caracas, Venezuela, I learned endoscopic gastroplasty and intragastric balloon for endoscopic management of obesity.
I belong to the Colombian Society of General Surgery (Asocolcirugia), the Latin American Society of Endoscopic Surgery (ALACE) and the Association of Endoscopists of Antioquia (ASENDA).
