Medical Tourism Your Questions Answered

How common is medical tourism?

Medical tourism is a rapidly growing trend worldwide, and has become especially common in the United States as American patients seek alternatives to the high cost of elective procedures in their home country. In 2017, more than 1.4 million Americans traveled abroad to receive health care, and that number is expected to grow by 25 percent every year.

Why should I choose Tijuana for cosmetic surgery?

In 2018, around 1.7 million patients and companions traveled to Tijuana for a medical procedure, and approximately 80 percent of the patients who traveled to Mexico were American. Why? Americans regularly choose Tijuana for medical treatment because of its proximity (immediately south of San Diego, CA) and because they can receive the same level of care they would in the U.S. for less than half of the cost. We also partner with Global Protective Solutions to offer medical tourism insurance.

Is medical tourism in Mexico safe?

When you choose a well-known hospital like the Cosmetic and Bariatric Surgery Center, medical tourism is absolutely safe. At our hospital, cosmetic surgery is performed just like it is in the United States, with all of the required safety protocols and cleanliness standards. Also, our facility is in a secure location mere minutes from the border, so patients have nothing to fear in regards to traveling abroad.
