Mexico  Medical Tourism

Medical tourism is becoming increasingly popular in Mexico and other developing nations. This is because there are many qualified doctors and dentists in Mexico that can perform life-saving medical procedures and high-quality personal health care services at a fraction of the cost of the procedures when done in the United States.  Medical tourism companies, the Mexican government, hospitals and health care facilities are all working together to make Medical Tourism Mexico grow.  Mexico ranks within the top 100 of the World Health Organization’s list of countries that provide quality health care. A patient from the United States no longer needs to travel half way around the world to experience the same level of service from hospitals in Southeast Asia.  Of course, just like in other countries some doctors are better than others. Be sure to get as much information about the doctor as possible before agreeing to undergo treatment or surgery. Mexico surgery performed by a competent surgeon is not any different from surgery procedures done in other parts of the world, also by competent doctors in terms of quality. The only difference you’ll experience is in the price and in the quality of the service.  Health workers in Mexico are warm and courteous and extend the best possible service to patients.

Traveling to Mexico for medical services not only allows patients to save on medical expenses, it also allows them to save on traveling costs.  Mexico not only offers world-class health care services at affordable rates, the country also has so much to offer in terms of allowing a patient to enjoy the sights and be able to relax during the period of recuperation. This makes Mexico plastic surgery an appealing option for patients. A patient can undergo an operation and relax in a beautiful resort waiting for surgery wounds to heal. The operation then becomes not just relaxing but also discreet.

Mexican surgeons are also competent and well-trained. Plastic surgery in Mexico is safe and the procedures usually cost half the price compared to rates in the United States or in the United Kingdom.   Dental surgery is also more affordable in Mexico than in the United States. A dental implant which will cost at least US $2,500 per tooth in the United States only costs US$1500 in Mexico. Weight loss surgery in Mexico is also safe and affordable so the different procedures are becoming more popular among medical travelers. A lap band bariatric surgery can range from US $5,000 - 10,000 in Mexico whereas the operation costs US $20,000 in the United States.

  • Hi. Thought you really should know that your lap band price for Mexico is not very up to date -the top surgeons and hospitals are charging no more than $6500. Your implant prices are quite high - this should be more like $900-$1,000.

    I’d also like to request that you add Mexico to your list of choices on the sidebar survey - more Americans travel to Mexico than any other country for medical and surgical care, so leaving it out is ignoring reality - and there is learning to be had, certainly, if Mexico doesn’t rate as highly in the survey as it does in real life, no?
