Medical Tourism to Mexico

Patients who consider bariatric surgery naturally want to entrust their weight loss procedure to a skilled and experienced team that will provide excellent results, as well as the support and guidance needed to succeed in your weight loss journey.

At Tijuana Bariatric Center, we offer just such a team, led by renowned bariatric surgeon Fernando Garcia, along with support from bariatric nutritionist Linda Cardona, plus nurse and caring staff. However, we also offer what bariatric surgery centers in the United States cannot: the opportunity to travel via medical tourism to one of Mexico’s most exciting cities.

Medical travel for bariatric surgery offers many benefits, with experiencing Tijuana, Mexico just one of them. At Tijuana Bariatric Center we will do whatever we can to make your travel experience as simple and hassle-free as possible. To this end, we now include medical tourism insurance coverage with our weight loss procedures at no additional cost to our patients.

If it’s time to change your life through bariatric surgery, consider the additional benefits you will get through our medical services. Schedule your initial virtual consultation with our staff today and the Tijuana Bariatric Surgery will help plan your trip.

The Top Benefits of Medical Tourism

The American Journal of Medicine notes that in 2017, more than 1.7 million Americans traveled abroad to access medical treatments. Weight loss surgery is one of the most popular reasons why patients consider the medical tourism industry. Obtaining health care in Mexico has several benefits, particularly when you work with Tijuana   to plan your trip. Every patient who works with our facility for medical travel receives the following advantages.

Cost-Effective, Affordable Bariatric Surgery With No Shortcuts

At Tijuana Bariatric Center you receive the same high-quality medical treatment that you would get in the United States with considerable cost savings. In most cases, undergoing one of our many state-of-the-art weight loss procedures with our highly experienced, board-certified surgeon will save you 50% to 75% of the cost of the same procedure for US citizens, even when you factor in airfare. Many health insurance plans do not cover the cost of weight loss surgical procedures, so patients often must pay the entire cost.

We are able to offer our services at an economical price due to several factors, including lower overhead costs. Our hospital meets the same high standards that hospitals in the United States must meet too, so you never have to worry about anything. All of our quality staff are highly trained, speak fluent English and are members of medical organizations such as the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery or the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders.

Reduced Wait Time

If you are from Canada, selecting a provider in Mexico for bariatric surgery can mean avoiding frustrating and lengthy wait times. Even though insurance may cover your treatment, it is not uncommon for Canadian patients to wait between six and 12 months, and sometimes years, before they can undergo a weight loss procedure. Long wait times in Mexico are virtually non-existent, and in most cases, you can expect to book your surgery within a few weeks of your virtual consultation.

We Take Care of Planning and Costs

Our patients also benefit from the planning we do for them, which shows how much we care for your individual welfare. We have designed all-inclusive medical tourism packages that provide transportation to and from San Diego International Airport, so you do not have to worry about transfers, and all ground transportation in Tijuana and your hotel room.

Our packages also include pre-and post-operative basic testing, medication, hospital, and medical coverage, along with $3,000 US Dollars in medical tourism coverage for peace of mind. You won’t find any other organization providing high-quality surgery in Tijuana that offers an included insurance benefit.

Aside from meals, we also pay for the cost of any support companion who may travel with you.

Tijuana is the Perfect Vacation Destination

As one of Mexico’s nicest, culturally rich vacation destinations, Tijuana is only minutes from the United States’ southern border. In recent years, the city has become increasingly safe for tourists, with crime rates dipping below many popular European vacation destinations.

You won’t find a better destination to begin your new life as Tijuana offers you the opportunity to relax and escape from the busy world. You and your support partner can enjoy stunning beaches like Playas de Tijuana or Rosarito Beach, view local arts at the world-famous Tijuana Cultural Center, visit historical points of interest or simply enjoy the mountainous vistas and breathtaking geographical features.
