MEDICAL TOURISM CONSULTANTS
Mexico has long been a popular tourist destination and is now also becoming a world leader in the medical tourism department. It has top quality hospitals, clinics and surgeries, some of the best trained doctors of anywhere.
Mexico’s close proximity with the US has helped to elevate it to the popular medical tourism destination it is today, with more Americans than ever before foregoing the extortionate surgical rates at home in favor of the same, or better, treatments in Mexico for half the price.
Most major cities and resorts in Mexico have high-class hospitals tailored to medical tourists, with Mexico City, Cancun, Cabo San Lucas, and Puerto Vallarta being some of the most popular places. In addition, many of Mexico’s top surgeons have been trained and have garnered their expertise in top US hospitals.
Common procedures performed in top Mexico surgeries include most kinds of cosmetic surgeries, like breast augmentation, face lifts, liposuction, and nose jobs. Obesity treatments are also popular in Mexico surgeries, while hip replacements, knee replacements, and even heart bypass operations are performed with precision. Mexico gastric lap band surgery is particularly specialised here.
Post-operative care in Mexico also leaves the US and Europe for dust. Mexican doctors and medical staff seem to have more time for their patients. So much so that patients may even find themselves staying longer than needed in a plush hotel-like hospital room with all the trimmings and caring staff.
