FAQs about Medical Tourism
Medical tourism is when patients choose to travel to another country to acquire more affordable, quality health and dental care. A rapidly advancing industry, although not new by any means, medical tourism is the solution to dental and health challenges that many patients face, worldwide. There is an array of terms used for this industry: global healthcare, heath travel, medical travel, cross-border healthcare, heath care abroad and medical vacations just to name a few. Currently, India, Thailand and Malaysia are of the most popular destinations within this industry.
In Europe many will cross borders to enjoy the benefits of alternative and less expensive health and dental care offered by their neighboring country. However, few people know that Mexico has fantastic health and dental care for a fraction of the price and without the long and expensive international flights!
Why travel to Mexico for dental and health care? The answers are simple: Cost of care, quality of care, proven alternative medical and dental treatments not available in the U.S. and proximity to the United States and Canada.
The cost of dental and health care can be as low as 30% of the price for a treatment in Mexico compared to prices in the United States. Patients can also take advantage of the affordable accommodations including hotels, resorts, vacation homes, RV parks and more. In addition, Mexico offers amazing cuisine, fresh organic fruits and vegetables and if by the ocean will offer a whole slew of freshly caught seafood daily at a fraction of U.S. prices.
The dental and health care offered to patients in Mexico is of the highest quality. The service and “bedside manners” provided by the physicians, nurses and staff are above expectations providing a plesant experience. House calls 24 hrs a day still happen and a long conversation with your Doctor is not out of the question.
Mexico, like many other countries involved in medical tourism, is a destination for many progressive, alternative treatments and integrative procedures. Doctors are able to customize treatments and procedures to each patient. For example, in Tijuana on the Baja California Penninsula (about 20 minutes south of San Diego) there are many excellent doctors that have extended the lifespan, increased the quality of life and in some cases cured the terminally ill using holistic, alternative and integrative approaches.
Surgeries, whether cosmetic, orthopedic, cardiac, optical, dental and more, are performed at world-class standards. There are excellent, high-quality hospitals and clinics within metropolitan Tijuana, as well as, a number of great private clinics and hospitals just down the road in the beautiful beach towns of Rosarito and Ensenada. Many physicians, surgeons, nurses, dentists, etc. are bi-lingual and have studied and trained in the United States and Europe. In many cases, Mexico will have access to new technologies and are able to perform proven, safe, extensively researched procedures years before the U.S. introduces these same procedures to the public.
And finally, Mexico’s convenient location to the U.S. and Canada allows for less expensive travel than locations in India, Thailand and Malaysia. If flying to receive treatment in Tijuana, there is no need for international flights as patients fly into San Diego and travel just 20 minutes south to the border making travel time significantly less.
Now, wait a minute… you mean to tell me that one can travel to Mexico to get high-quality, affordable health and dental care, as well as, take a vacation AND it costs less than the procedure alone in the U.S.? Yes, that’s right! Mexico has the answer to the increasing economic and medical needs for the average U.S. citizen. With its easy access, gorgeous scenery, caring medical and dental professionals, Mexico offers hope and solutions to patients worldwide.
