ACL Reconstruction

ACL Reconstruction Surgery A torn ACL will not heal without surgery and most ACL tears cannot be sutured (stitched) back together. To surgically repair the ACL and restore knee stability, the ligament must be reconstructed with an arthroscopic and/or mini-open surgery. Although it is possible to recover from an ACL injury and be active without pain, in the long run this could become a major problem

discectomy Spinal surgery has come a long way with recent technological advancements. Conventional open spine surgery meant large incisions, long recovery periods, painful rehabilitation, and high complications rate while not as high success rate.

Health & Wellness Bazaar saved my life. In September 2016, I injured my cervical spine practicing yoga resulting in 2 herniated discs. I refused to have surgery because of my young age and the future consequences of open spine surgery. Health & Wellness Bazaar works with the best orthopedic surgeons in Mexico who specialize in Stem Cell Therapy for spinal disc regeneration. I was impressed by the responsiveness of the HWBazaar team, they handled my case with extreme care and answered all my questions in a timely manner.

Dr. Mora and his medical staff are amazing professionals and human beings, I felt very comfortable and secure since the moment I was picked up at the San Diego Airport. The Stem Cell Therapy I had was very successful, I completely avoided surgery and saved considerable money compared to what this treatment would have cost in the US. I always recommend HWBazaar to anyone who needs medical treatment, even to those who have insurance with expensive deductibles and copays.

These guys (and gals) saved my life. No joke. I needed a double fusion but had no health insurance and one disc was 90% gone and the one next to it was 50% gone. I had bone on bone crushing a nerve cluster to my sciatic and couldn't afford a double fusion and didn't want one anyway. I am a yacht captain and have used to medical tourism before so I was ok with trying this stem cell with PRP treatment. Most people that saw me in my worst condition didn't seem to care very much and EVERYONE at Health & Wellness cared for me as if i was their own family. very sincere and very talented. No game at this place. Lots of love and LOTS of skill.

Being in Tijuana is a little disconcerting, but inside is actually just as clean as American medical places. Sometimes I had to remind myself of the reality of American medical places, compared to tv and movie sets that are not "reality". Then i could get over my thoughts, relax, and let them heal me.

Needless to say, it worked. Im 53 years old, the surgery was in August 2017 and now its march 2018; I feel great. Im working, playing, and installing a new engine in my boat. They're so nice, they call me to remind me to do the exercises and stretches but I feel so good that I've just been taking long walks instead.

Now the same people that didn't care if i healed or not have seen this miracle and ask me for the doctors phone number. I highly recommend this place. When I meet people that have a ruptured disc and they're not doing anything about it, I wish I could just drag them there and pay for it myself. It's that good!

  • Albany, OR, USA
I had the good fortunate of going to Health and Wellness Bazaar on March 19, 2018, for a total left knee repair. I had been in tremendous pain and in January of 2018, I started to research for facilities that offer this type of surgery. Virtually all the facilities in my area, Willamette Valley of Oregon, the cost was prohibited for my pocket book. I was between $42,000 all the way up to $65,000 dollars. I had previous heard about medical tourism, leaving the USA and having foreign doctors and hospitals doing the surgery. So I did a google search and found several clinic that offer this service. I contacted Health and Wellness Bazaar and began to communicate with them as they were not the most expensive or inexpensive. I spoke with David Mora, one of the patient coordinators and he and I discussed the surgery and costs. I provided Mr. Mora with the necessary x rays and lab results. The first offer was $11, 600 but on examination the surgical implant device would not of been the right fit in my knee so we opted to go with a more robust joint which raised the price to $12,300. I also went on you tube and check out Dr. Eliso Mora Sanchez, the surgeon and listen to him talk knee replacement. I wanted to make darn sure I was ready to make the trip to Tijuana Mexico. Health and Wellness Bazaar had my whole itinerary ready for me when I went to Mexico. My hotel, the pre op with the surgeon, hospital, the surgery, and the recovery at the hospital and the hotel. So what happened? I had a very successful surgery by Dr. Mora Sanchez. Every night one the clinic staff stayed with me while I was in the hospital to ensure I was well taken care. My pain management was very professionally handled. I stayed the hospital for two additional nights after the surgery and then moved to my hotel room for an additional two nights where the clinic staff monitored me constantly. It has been two weeks and one day after my surgery. I am now walking with a cane, going to rehab, and virtually everybody who is in the medical field who has looked at Dr. Mora Sanchez' work has been impressed. If I need any additional orthopedic surgeries I will be asking Health and Wellness Bazaar

  • Microdiscectomy & Stem Cell Therapy
  • Calgary, Canada
I was off work due to a lower back issue in March 2018. After getting an MRI performed in Calgary, Alberta, Canada it was apparent I had a severely herniated disc at L5 and the disc above it was mildly herniated. Even with our excellent health care system in Canada we were told that I would be put in the long line to see a specialist for possible surgical options to help me. The pain was beyond bad. I needed relief and started to look at private surgical opinions to help me. I contacted 4 different clinics throughout North America and 1 in Europe. 3 clinics had nearly the same diagnosis that scared me. The 3 told me I needed spinal fusion. Fusion scared me. My doctor, who is a good friend, told me I should look at other options.

Dr Mora and his team at Health and Wellness were the only professionals that told me I didn't need anything so drastic as spinal fusion. With his decades of experience he told me I was a good candidate for his minimally invasive discectomy and stem cell treatment. I was so happy to hear this from him. After doing more research on his team from Mexico I was confident he was the person to help me. David and his father Dr Mora were truly first class. They made me feel at ease with the lead up to surgery and did everything possible to make both myself and my wife comfortable when we arrived in Mexico. Our driver Michael, was awesome and accommodations and logistics were excellent. The surgery was textbook perfect and post operative care was good. It was all that I could have hoped for, especially when we really took a leap of faith and put my health in their hands. I would recommend Dr Mora and his team to anyone, anywhere! 6 weeks later as I write this review and I'm having some post operative questions. David has been prompt in all his replies to me and even offered me Dr Mora's personal cellular number for questions. Can't ask for much more than that! Daren O. Calgary, Alberta, Canada

  • Santa Rosa, NM, U.S.
The Health & Wellness Bazaar has been nothing short of a miracle for us. My husband has struggled and suffered with excruciating pain from his herniated discs. He was losing function of his left leg and the pain in his left leg was horrible. He didn't have a life because he could not focus on anything except the pain. It was to the point that he couldn't sleep or eat anymore either. The pain medications were just making him sick and not helping the pain.

He was out of options and doctors in our State wanted to do microdiscectomy and fusion in his lumbar spine. That was when I knew there had to be more options. I found Dr. Mora online and discovered Spinal Stem Cell Therapy. We were determined to get this procedure done. From beginning to end the whole staff was completely amazing and caring. David Mora stayed in constant contact with us and made us feel comfortable. We were picked up at the airport upon landing. Our driver, Michael Pino was fantastic! He explained things further to us, answered all our questions, and was always there when he said he would be. Dr. Mora is a fantastic doctor that really cares about his patients. He takes the time to explain things to you and listens to you. My husband had the procedure done on July 20th, 2017 and felt immediate relief that he had not felt in years. Dr. Mora had informed us that my husband's herniation was pretty bad and may require a second Ozone Procedure. We hoped that he might not, however 3 months later his pain did start to return. We rescheduled with David Mora and were back in Dr. Mora's care December 12, 2017. Once again we were very well taken care of. After the second Ozone procedure my husband was pain free in his left leg. He is currently in the healing process but doing well.

I highly recommend the Health and Wellness Bazaar and Dr. Mora and his team. We are always telling our friends, family and people we meet about how great this Ozone procedure has been for my husband. Having been to so many different doctors and clinics and watching my husband be treated like just a number or someone who just wants pain medications, I was extremely, pleasantly surprised at the way Dr. Mora and his staff cared for their patients. Even though my husband is still in the recovery stage, he has felt the most relief from the Spinal Stem Cell Therapy than any other procedure he has gone through. Seeing Dr. Mora has been the best decision we have made.

In April 2015, I was blessed to have found Dr. Mora through Health & Wellness Bazaar. I broke my ring finger and was force to seek treatment outside the states because of lack of medical insurance. Dr. Mora and his staff are absolutely wonderful! I received surgery to my ring finger and his care and professionalism for me were above and beyond. before and after surgery the procedure was explained. His facility is well maintained and secured. I felt safe at all times. My recovery was great and fast! One more thing He was able to help me with my State Disability paperwork as well. that was super important to me. I do tell everyone of my great experience with Dr. Mora and his staff. If you are like me looking for a trust worthy Doctor I recommend you give him a call.

I received a stem cell treatment for my lower back and removal of hardware. Before my treatment I could barely get out of bed and had lots of pain. I'm currently going through a police academy now and my back is 100% This was done January 2017. I flew in from the New Jersey to San Diego and was picked up at airport and driven to the Tijuana clinic. The staff was great and they exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Health & Wellness Bazaar. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Thank you Dr. Mora!
  • Andrew Kapur

  • Knee MPFL Reconstruction
  • Alameda, CA, U.S.
I twisted my knee playing tennis in June of 2017. After over a month of rest and ice it was not any better so I saw an orthopedist. The diagnosis was that I had dislocated my patella, damaged my medial patella-femoral ligament, and torn cartilage. The recommendation was surgery but the cost was prohibitively expensive.

Searching online I came across Health & Wellness Bazaar. At first I was skeptical but they reviewed my medical records and answered all my questions without charge. In September 2017 I flew to San Diego for a consultation with Dr. Mora who has his office right across the border in Tijuana. It's less than 30 minutes from the San Diego airport and transportation is included. Dr. Mora has over 30 years of experience and had successfully performed the surgery I needed hundreds of times. The price they quoted me was less than half than what it would cost in the United States. More than that, the entire Health & Wellness Bazaar team is invested in the patient having a positive experience and outcome.

In October 2017 I had surgery to repair the damage to my knee. The surgery was a success and I came away very impressed by both the surgical facilities and the skill of all involved. Everybody (Dr. Mora, the nurses, the anesthesiologist, and my driver back to San Diego) really took the time to make sure the surgery went well and I had everything I needed. This is truly individualized treatment and care; I never once felt rushed or treated like just another nondescript patient. I strongly recommend Health & Wellness Bazaar to anybody who needs orthopedic surgery.

  • Total Hip Replacement
  • San Juan Capistrano, CA, U.S.
HWBazaar was a godsend to me, when none of the doctors in the US seemed to care at all about my hip, and severe pain. HW Bazaar put me in contact with Dr Mora Sanchez and his team.

Dr Mora Sanchez is a stand up surgeon. I just had my hip replaced by Dr Mora, and I couldn't be happier. In, out, and back home in 4 days. This option totally beats the treatment one gets in the united states. After meeting with Dr Mora, I felt at ease, and confident in his skills as he explained the procedure to me. His staff is outstanding. His son Dave is an excellent coordinator, his associate/driver Michael is a fantastic man. Mora's right hand man Sergio took great care of me, and made sure my pain level was well managed. His clinic is clean, and the hospital (Guadalajara) is exceptionally clean and sanitary.

I will be scheduling going back for my knee replacement soon. I am completely confident that if any problems should arise down the road, that Dr Mora will be right there to address them. I have total confidence in this man, and you should too. His son Dave sent me an itinerary of what to expect with a detailed timeline, and it was followed almost exactly to the minute. It's been over a week now, and I'm progressing as fast or faster than others I've come across online who have had this procedure elsewhere.

Sure, it's a little scary leaving the country for surgery, but Dr Mora's driver Michael made all the difference in making me feel like I was right at home. He is also quite knowledgable about many medical procedures, and was able to answer my questions with excellent communication skills. Again, I would not think twice about using the services of HWBazaar again. Their understanding, compassion and immediate attention to your health concerns are so complete and fast, it's mind boggling.

Thanks again to everyone involved in my treatment!!!!!

  • Spinal Stem Cell Therapy and Peronius Tendon Repair
  • Cave Creek, AZ, U.S.
Luck was with me when I discovered Dr. Mora and Health & Wellness Bazaar! I have seen him for 3 different procedures in 2017, the first one in May for a Peronius Tendon repair. David Mora, my contact, was concerned and concise with my issue and the treatment required. Dr. Mora is a very experienced and learned man, and he thoroughly explained exactly what the surgeries would entail, as well as the anesthesia used & rehab recommendations.

My additional procedures have far exceeded my expectations. Dr. Mora performed Stem Cell Therapy with Ozone Discolysis with P.R.P. in several locations in my back in July 2017, and a Bunionette removed in November 2017.

I love that Health & Wellness Bazaar will provide travel assistance if required: I live close enough to Tijuana that I can drive, and they helped me find accommodations in Tijuana and the easiest ways to get around. They will also provide travel to and from the San Diego Airport, and/or a hotel, which really eases the border crossings.

The staff is nothing short of professional and gracious and they have been instrumental in me learning Spanish, although translation is NEVER an issue! My road to Health & Wellness Bazaar began because I did not have insurance nor the money to pay for the treatments in the US, but to be honest, I would travel there for any health issue, my confidence in them is so great!

  • Manitoba, ON, Canada
In October of 2015 I had Spinal Stem Cell Therapy done to 2 of my lumbar discs which proved to be very successful. I was very nervous going in as I had never heard of this procedure before. With such excruciating pain in my lower back and losing function of my leg I had no choice but to trust that this was the right thing for me. I have not regretted it since. Dr. Mora is undoubtedly a great surgeon/doctor, I wouldn’t hesitate to go back! I couldn’t have asked for better staff, they were so friendly and made me feel very comfortable. I especially recommend anyone who suffers with back pain to check him out. He will not disappoint. Many thanks, Elma Krahn

  • Cindy Richardson

  • Total Hip Replacement
  • Whitecourt, AB, Canada
I researched out of country total hip replacement surgery in January of 2017 because I had been suffering with severe osteoarthritis in my right hip and being less than 50, wasn't being considered for surgery in Canada. I was assisted with great detail and patience throughout the entire planning process.

On April 3rd, I had the surgery in Tijuana. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the vacation/medical experience. I received excellent aftercare during my stay there, as well as upon returning home. Although the area surrounding the hospital in Tijuana looks quite rough, the facility itself was excellent! I received excellent care during my stay there and the food at the hospital was miles above any Canadian hospital food I've ever experienced (great attention to freshness, food preferences and nutrition). If the language barrier ever became a problem, it was easy to use online translators to make sure everyone was understood. I would definitely recommend anybody I know to consider using this company for out of country orthopedic surgeries. In fact, I've given the info to many people and have a friend who just returned from Tijuana with a new hip! The only thing I would do differently, is make sure to have a plan in place upon returning home for follow-up physiotherapy (at least in the case of hip replacement).

  • Wrist Fracture Open Reduction - Internal Fixation
  • Queen Creek, AZ, U.S.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Mora and his staff. I had broke my wrist September 2017. I had lost my healthcare because of a divorce and could not afford the high premiums. I had started researching the cost of the surgery that was required, an open reduction internal fixation surgery and looked into Orthopedic surgeons in Tijuana. I contacted the Health & Wellness Bazaar and spoke with David. He was absolutely wonderful and very knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable with them right away.

Dr. Mora by far is one of the best doctors I’ve ever experienced. He was professional, he took his time with me to explain the break and the procedure needed. It was a great overall experience. The staff at BajaOrtho were top-notch, friendly and treated you like family.

Had I had this procedure done in the United States my savings would have been depleted. The cost was a fraction of what it would’ve cost me here in the US.

I would highly recommend Dr. Mora to my family, my friends and anyone who is considering going to Tijuana to have Orthopedic surgery.

It has been three months since my surgery. I am 57 years old and I am doing great! I am doing my own physical therapy and I know if I have any questions or concerns that Dr. Mora will response to me personally.

Again a BIG THANK YOU to Dr. Mora, your wonderful team and David for making this such a positive experience for me.

  • Bilateral Knee Arthroscopy & Stem Cell Therapy
  • Plano, TX, U.S.
Thanks to Health & Wellness Bazaar I am able to walk and move freely without any pain. In 2016, I was diagnosed with severe arthritis in my left knee and was recommended a knee replacement. I am a very active person and consider myself too young to have my knee replaced. Because of this, I researched online for alternative solutions to knee replacement and found Health & Wellness Bazaar and its medical tourism network of specialized surgeons. The Health & Wellness Bazaar team was very helpful and efficient in coordinating the review of my case with their doctors and were great in explaining their findings and recommendation. I agreed to undergo Knee Arthroscopy with Stem Cell Therapy to regenerate the cartilage and I couldn’t be happier with the results. In 4 months after my treatment I was completely recovered and I am now able to enjoy all the activities I used to do with my biological knee. Since my last visit my right knee started bothering me and I am scheduled to get Stem Cell Therapy on it on February 2017, I cannot wait!

Health & Wellness Bazaar makes medical tourism a very simple and quick process. I was assigned a case manager since the first contact and he was in constant communication with me to answer any question I had and help me coordinate the logistics of my trip. Additionally, and the best part, Health & Wellness Bazaar also provided me all the documentation necessary to file a claim with my insurance company to get reimbursed for the knee arthroscopy part of the treatment.
  • Steve Paradie

  • Bilateral Total Knee Replacement
  • Los Angeles, CA, U.S.
This is a long review but I wanted to share my total experience of my double knee replacement surgery.

Dr. Mora is an amazing orthopedic surgeon! I had been on workers comp for 3 years fighting with the insurance company for double knee replacements. I was only 50 years old but had been a tractor trailer driver/delivery driver my whole life. I live in southern California but am originally from New Hampshire. After seeing the care that I had gotten for my knees or lack of, in California. I decided I would never allow them to do the surgery on my knees. Finally after 3 years, a cash settlement was reached. After 3 years of trying to walk with 2 bad knees, I had a 40% lower body disability. Not only were my knees screwed up but also my hips, my thighs, my calves, my feet, I was in rough shape!

I asked my wife to look on the internet for an orthopedic surgeon anywhere in the world. If it was $10,000 cheaper and it cost $5,000 to travel, we would be $5,000 ahead of the game. I wasn't looking for cheap. I was looking for the best all around deal. Of course I wanted a great doctor for as cheap as possible, who wouldn't, unless money wasn't an issue. My wife had contacted many places around the whole world and David Mora was the first to contact us back. He sent me their website to look over and a price for the double knee replacement surgery. I saw the price and was in shock but in a good way! My uncle had knee replacements in New Hampshire (with insurance), they charged the insurance company $180,000 for each knee! Let me just say, the price I was quoted wasn't even 1/10th of that!

I read the reviews for David's father, Dr. Mora. Every review was 5 stars and had nothing but great things to say about him. I asked David, What if there is an infection? He told me, his dad has been an orthopedic surgeon for 35 years and had done over 1500 knee replacements and it has never happened. We decided to have Dr. Mora do my double knee replacements. My wife and I drove to San Ysidro border in San Diego where we were met by David Mora and their driver Mike in a parking lot at the border of Tijuana Mexico. We left our car in the very safe parking lot which is patrolled by border patrol. Mike is a very professional driver whom turned into a great friend still to this day. He is more than a driver, he was more like my personal liaison seeing as though my wife and I don't speak any Spanish.

Once we got to Dr. Mora's facility, it did look a little scary but Mike made us feel secure. Once inside, Mike communicated to the receptionist for me who I was. They actually made me feel important like, I was their only patient. I knew I wasn't but in California when you go to a doctor for a scheduled visit, there are like ten people in the office and you don't get in for about an hour but if you're late, they make you reschedule. They started me right off with an EKG for my heart then x-rays of both knees. After that, I was ready for the surgery the next morning. Mike then brought us across the street to a very secure hospital. My wife needed a badge and every day, a security guard would come and issue her a new badge. We had arrived on Wednesday, March 29th 2017 and was released on Saturday, April 1st 2017. The room was nice but I had asked for a couch or a recliner for my wife over and over again and didn't receive it until I called David Mora. I was very upset about that because it was getting late, my wife was tired and she didn't even have anywhere to sit. Finally, the recliner arrived, late Wednesday night. I also suggest that if you can't speak Spanish, get a translator app on your phone. It worked great for me but the WIFI was a little off and on so I would say what I had to say to my app, it would translate it and I would screenshot it. Then, I would call for the nurse and show them my phone. The television was great! Many channels including HBO and Showtime. Now either the hospital wasn't climate controlled or they were saving on A/C so i asked for a fan in my room and opened the window. Luckily it was only in the low 70's. The food was great! They have a cafeteria which my wife would eat at and she told me that the food was very good and pretty cheap. David told me that they had addressed the issues that I had with the hospital and things there have gotten better and apologized for any inconvenience. 7 am Thursday morning, they came and wheeled me out for surgery. I was very impressed at how clean and sterile the surgical center was. They gave me an epidural for my surgery because I have severe sleep apnea so they didn't want to knock me out. It was very strange to be awake for the whole surgery which was 8 hours long. There looked to be about 5 surgeons and 5 surgeons helpers doing the surgery. The anesthesiologist sat and talked with me the the whole time. He draped a sheet up so that I couldn't see what was happening but I heard everything. I never felt a thing though, totally painless. After the surgery, they brought me back to my room at about 3 pm. 8 hour surgery, YIKES! I was in a lot of pain Thursday night and Friday night. I didn't sleep at all. I was hoping that I could so to pass the time. I had liquid fentanyl taped to my chest going directly into my spine where I was given the epidural. It still wasn't enough. I just kept ringing the buzzer and telling the nurses that I needed more pain meds. I just wanted to be knocked out I was in so much pain and I have a great tolerance for pain. The next morning, they had me stand. They made me do it by myself which I did. It was tough but I did it. Friday night, didn't sleep at all again with pain. Saturday morning, they came back in and had me stand and walk with a walker. I did it! I could only take a few steps at a time and then had to sit. Saturday afternoon, Mike picked my wife and I up to bring us back to our car. We stopped at his favorite taco place and we all got the best taco's ever! When I arrived at home, I had the help of some neighbors to get me up the stairs of my house. Those 5 steps were rough but I did it by swinging my legs up one step at a time. I continued walking with a walker getting stronger everyday. By the 3rd day, My neighbors helped me take a shower in a handicap bathroom and re-dressed my knees. By the end of the week, I was walking with a rollator. A couple days of that and then I needed no assistance at all.

In one week, I was walking without the aid of anything or anyone. I went back for a follow up in one month and they couldn't believe how well I was walking but told me to slow down and relax a little more. It has now been 9 months since my surgery. I have had many problems with my legs but none had to do with my surgery. Like I said in the beginning, I had a 40% whole body disability. The most important thing I would say to do is, ride a bike, stretch out your legs. Work out your legs. Don't just walk because you don't get the stretch that you need to. I have gone to an orthopedist here and showed him the x rays of my new knees and he said, they look perfect and that Dr. Mora did a great job! 9 months later and you can barely even see my scars. For me, Both of my knees were gone and I was in so much pain for 3 years, having both of my knees done at the same time was the best choice for me and I don't regret a thing. I am still on the road to recovery because of all of my other leg problems which were caused by my bad knees for 3 years. If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely choose Dr. Mora again. He is a great doctor and did a great job on my knees. Thank you Dr. Mora! To this day, they are still in contact with me and told me if I need anything at all, just to let them know.

I had been suffering with Osteoarthritis on my right Hip for about 3 years and it kept getting worse. I finally went to a Chiropractor with a sore Hip one Day only for him to tell me after he X rayed my Hip he could not do much for me. I kept going to him for about a year to relieve the Pain somewhat but it kept getting worse. I saw our Family Doctor and tried to get a referral to see a Specialist for over a year. All he kept telling me was I was too young and there were other Options. I asked him what they were and he said it was Painkillers and Cortisone Injections. After a bit I got frustrated and went to see another Doctor. He did give me a referral and a little while later I went in to see a Specialist. We met, he reviewed my case and agreed that total Hip Replacement was the only Option but he did Mention that he thought I was too Young ( 47 at the Time ). I was put on a waiting List for Surgery..... and would still be waiting.

The Pain was getting crazy, went to see the Doctor here and I received stronger and stronger Painkillers. They did nothing for the Pain. Then one Day the Richardson Family called me, they heard about my Dilemma and said if I was looking for Options to call this Clinic, so I called. I was pretty nervous because going out of the Country was a pretty big step for me. IT WAS THE BEST PHONE CALL I EVER MADE. Thanks to this Clinic, I have my LIFE back. Dr. Eliseo Mora Sanchez is one of the most amazing People I have ever met, he is an incredibly Talented Man. The People working with Him and Service are second to none. They are true Professionals and are very good at what they do. From the second we stepped off the Airplane at San Diego we were looked after every Step of the Way. Thanks to you and your Staff again for a Life altering Experience and for giving me my Life back. From my experience I would recommend this Clinic to anyone. Very Grateful, Burk Krohn

I went there in May 2015 for Ozone treatment and everything has gone as planned. The whole staff at the clinic were outstanding and the treatment so far beats what they wanted to do here in the US! I wish I had gone there 3 years ago instead getting passed from DR to DR here! Dave will take good care of you!

I am glad I found HWBazaar and I had crippling pain in my left hip and was getting to the point that even a short walk to the mailbox, twenty yards was an adventure.  My daughter in law is from Mexico and I had been in the country before and as far as medical or dental care there I felt very comfortable with the services there. After all I currently live in the US where the third leading cause of death is the health care system. The staff and the facilities are great. HWBazaar works with a boutique surgery center so there is less exposure to infection like you would get in a large hospital and you also receive a one-to-one nurse attention. The surgery went well and I recovered rapidly.  Furthermore, the cost savings can not be beat, I saved at least $40,000 compared to what I would have paid in my home town including airfare and the stay at the hotel.  If I ever need medical attention again I would not think twice about going back to HWBazaar again.

Prior to finding HWBazaar my knee had failed me several years ago. I was on a waiting list for a consultation for over 9 months at that point and I wanted to find a high quality medical care that was also affordable.  HWBazaar was exactly what I was looking to and I am very glad I found them.

Quite frankly, I found HWBazaar and its providers no different than the 'care' we receive in Canada.  In Canada I have to travel at least 6 hours to find a surgeon, I don't know them on a personal level, and you only have the word of other people to go on as to how good the doctor is.  I can honestly say the only thing I should have done differently was learn more Spanish to make my experience more memorable and enjoyable.  This wasn't an issue though as Dr. Mora and the HWBazaar staff made sure someone was about who spoke English.

My experience was very positive, especially the people.  Everyone I met was definitely worth meeting, good folks all around.  I have recommended HWBazaar to a lot of my friends, all I have to tell them is: “Quit messing about with the doctors in Canada. Just go, they'll fix you. Even if you have to take out a loan, go."

I decided to look for alternative options because I have had severe back problems and, within our Canadian medical systems, the wait times were too long and my pain was unbearable.

Before moving forward with HWBazaar I researched Dr. Eliseo Mora Sanchez credentials and history on the Internet. My mind was made up I needed help for my herniated discs. The treatment was successful. I left home in a wheelchair and came back after my Ozone Discolysis walking fine.

I had a very positive experience overall. Since my initial contact with HWBazaar to the Airport pick-up in San Diego and transportation within Tijuana. I can't forget the staff, caring. Then I met Dr. Eliseo Mora Sanchez and he explained the procedure and I was good to go, confident that I had come to the right place. When I was in the Dr.'s presence I became totally at ease he had that calming effect on me.

I have already recommended Dr. Eliseo Mora Sanchez and his clinic, I boast about my successful treatment. Initially David Mora played a major role in my decision-making to proceed and made all arrangements for all appointments to flow smoothly, to this day he still remains in touch with me. Very comforting.

The wait list in Canada was too long to receive treatment for my ankle problem and my pain was unbearable.  My biggest fear in looking for alternative options was the unknown.  I went to a foreign country with a foreign language, so it was intimidating. The care was wonderful and professional, and I returned home very satisfied and happy that I made the decision to go out of country.

The satisfaction I feel today is enormous in knowing I made a good decision and returned home after a successful surgical procedure.  I would recommend HWBazaar’s services to anyone and I would advice them to communicate directly with your office and allow your clinic to present the best option for his particular case. The communication would ease any fears or doubts, and I would encourage him to make the trip.
