When searching for affordable gastric sleeve options, you are sure to have come across medical tourism in Mexico. While you might be thinking that you’re better off going to a local clinic for the surgery, don’t be too hasty in brushing off the idea of going to Mexico for the same procedure.
Medical tourism in Mexico is becoming increasing popular, especially among U.S. and Canadian residents. This is due partly to the convenience of traveling to and from Mexico, and the fact that over the past few years, Mexico has become a global healthcare hub for medical tourism. But, before you make a decision about whether going to Mexico is right for you, here are a few facts to keep in mind.
Mexico is conveniently located for individuals who live in both the U.S. and Canada. Both of these countries are major markets for medical tourism, especially for Mexico, as flights to major cities are relatively cheap and there is an abundance of flights to choose from.
- Internationally Accredited Hospitals and Medical Facilities
Hospitals in Mexico are equipped with the latest, up-to-date technology and latest equipment required to perform sophisticated medical procedures including oncology, dentistry, cosmetic procedures, and gastroenterology. Medical facilities in Mexico are on par with the U.S., providing patients with a safe and comfortable environment for medical checkups, procedures, surgery, and post-operative recuperation.
- Highly Experienced Doctors and Medical Staffs
All medical professionals in Mexico are highly experienced, and trained with the necessary skills required to perform a wide variety of medical procedures. This is due in part to the unavailability of FDA approved procedures in the U.S. Therefore, medical professionals in Mexico have years of experience in performing complex procedures that are not approved, or just barely approved in the U.S.
Additionally, a good majority of Mexican doctors receive their medical training in either the U.S. or the UK, which allows for them to be able to work directly with international patients without any concerns.
- No Waiting Time
Medical treatment in Mexico comes with virtually no long wait times. Patients from other countries where seemingly unending wait lines for public health are common, find the speed of quality, safe healthcare in Mexico appealing. Due to the short wait times, many patients from neighboring countries travel to Mexico for timely medical care from a friendly, experienced, medical staff.
A good majority of procedures that are preformed in Mexico on average cost 50%-75% less compared to the exact same procedure in the U.S. For instance, a weight loss surgery in the U.S. can cost upwards of tens of thousands of dollars, where as in Mexico the same surgery cost only a few thousand dollars.
