Medical Tourism FAQ
What airport should I choose?
Because of our close proximity to San Diego, CA, many of our patients from other countries choose to fly in and out of San Diego International Airport. Driving time between this airport and our hospital is only 30 minutes and we are located within walking distance of the border.
Do I need to stay overnight?It depends on your procedure. Some cosmetic procedures like liposuction are performed on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to return across the border the same day as their treatment. Other, more involved procedures like a gastric bypass or gastric sleeve surgery usually require a few days of recovery at our hospital. We also partner with luxury accommodations including the Quartz Hotel, Pueblo Amigo Hotel, and Hotel Lucerna Tijuana.
Can someone help me with travel arrangements?
Of course! Our bilingual patient care team is available to answer any questions you may have about transportation and accommodations. If you'd like, we can recommend airlines, hotels, and even activities for your companions to enjoy while you recover from your bariatric or plastic surgery.

"I'm So Happy I Went to TJ" 5-Star Patient Reviews
I am so happy I went to T.J. to have Dr. G as I call him do my surgery. It was a very pleasant and awesome experience. I had a extended tummy tuck and breast lift with implants done. The whole staff was great, friendly and professional. After the surgery the Dr. G. Called me everyday for a week to check and see how I was doing and feeling and if I had questions about anything.
I can't wait for total recovery to show my confidence.
