Medical procedures in the United States are some of the most expensive in the world. Yet they are the same exact procedures performed in almost every other country, and evidence shows that there is little to no difference in quality between the United States and most other countries.
In Mexico, the cost of medical procedures is a fraction of what it costs in the United States, and the quality of care, when provided by qualified surgeons and doctors, is comparable to what you would receive in a US hospital. Consider the following:
- Braces in the United States: $5,000
- Braces in Tijuana: $400
The dental procedures are the exact same, but the cost is a fraction. At Mexico Bariatric Center, where we have experts that provide gastric sleeve in Tijuana and gastric bypass in Tijuana, among other procedures, the costs – which include hotels, airfare, a driver, recovery time, and more – are as little as 10% to 20% the costs in the United States. Yet the surgeons are well trained, the hospital is clean, and significant attention is paid to each and every patient.
Safety is often the primary concern, but in the hands of qualified surgeons, the procedures are the same. Many doctors in the Mexico study medicine at American Universities, or learn from Ex-Pats that have moved to Mexico to teach and enjoy the weather.
