Medical Tourism in Mexico

Medical Tourism in Mexico - Medical tourism to Mexico is growing increasingly popular each year, particularly among US patients. It is for this reason that cities in Mexico on the border with the US are among the most popular medical tourism destinations in the country. Tijuana, not far south of San Diego, for example, boasts some of the finest medical facilities anywhere in the Americas. Popular treatments include high-tech eye surgery and bariatric surgeries such as lap band surgery.

Mexico Cosmetic Surgery - Cosmetic surgery in Mexico is particularly popular among US patients who have long been crossing the border for low cost plastic surgery. Tijuana in particular boasts several excellent clinics catering to medical tourists with breast procedures such as breast lifts and body and facial procedures such as vaginoplasty, tummy tucks and face lifts available.

Mexico Dental Tourism - Dental treatments are widely available in Mexico and thousands of US citizens make the journey south of the border each year for the quality services that are offered at very favorable rates. Crowns, dentures and implants can all be sought here as well as cosmetic procedures such as laser teeth whitening. Popular clinics are located in cities such as Los Cabos, Tijuana and Baja Sur.

Mexico Alternative Medicine - Specialists practicing alternative medicine can be hard to find in Mexico, but the country is becoming popular for its alternative cancer treatments where herbal remedies and diet supplements are used to combat the disease.

Mexico Health Spas - Mexico boasts many resorts to choose from on the lower Baja peninsula, on the Pacific coast, and also along the Caribbean. A number of resorts are incorporating spas, which now commonly feature in medical tourism packages. An ideal package, which tour operators working in cooperation with medical tourism facilities are able to organize, can include a period of recovery at a secluded seaside resort. One popular Pacific coast resort uses seawater from the Pacific Ocean in its treatments.

 
Baja California Medical Tourism Campaigns

By Janet Lavelle  - Hospital Angeles in Tijuana caters to medical tourists seeking lower cost procedures or treatments that aren’t performed in their home countries. For decades, U.S. residents have crossed the border in search of cheap dentistry, alternative health care and pharmacies providing easy access to prescription drugs. Now, health providers in Tijuana say they have much more to offer in the way of sophisticated medical office procedures and hospital care, and have created business groups aimed at getting that word out to U.S. consumers.

“In the past, the focus was on low cost. But in the last five years, doctors have been offering more complex treatments, hiring more bilingual personnel and doing more professional marketing,” said Flavio Olivieri, executive director of the Tijuana Industrial and Economic Development Corp. and cofounder of the Tijuana Medical Tourism Association.

 
Mexican Government Promotes Medical Tourism

"Mexico Medical Tourism" -  The Mexican federal government’s Tourism Secretariat has a new initiative to rejuvenate medical tourism in the country, expecting 650,000 visitors, who will spend $US50 million by 2020. Secretary of tourism Rodolfo Elizondo explained that the project sought to enlist all private hospitals of international status and create a specific offer that will be primarily promoted within Hispanic communities in Texas and California. Most of this community has no health insurance; so several thousand people living over the border could be interested in the services that Mexico has to offer.
