Medical Tourism

Medical tourism is the process where individuals travel from their home country to another country to receive medical care. Medical tourism has been around for many years, and ranges from services such as yearly physicals and dental check-ups, all the way to complex procedures such as open-heart surgery. Individuals from the U.S. and Canada turn to Medical Tourism to avoid high costs and/or long wait times for medical treatment in their home country. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, up to 1,450,000 Americans and Canadians travel abroad each year for healthcare.

3 Myths about Medical Tourism in Mexico

After all this fantastic information about Medical Tourism in Mexico, you may wonder why you have heard so many negative things about medical services in Mexico. Sometimes negative media is based on politics or just prejudice. So, in this section, we would like to address 3 of the most common myths or negative ideas about medical services in Mexico. We will try to enlist facts that provide a foundation for reliable information. So, if you hear any of these negative ideas, you will know what to think.

  • The hospitals in Mexico are not safe

Myth: Medical services in Mexico are unsafe. Hospitals are not equipped, and they are dirty. If you get surgery in a Mexican hospital, you will risk your life.

Fact: Mexico has been consistently in the top 3 spots of medical tourism destinations worldwide. This means that hundreds of patients have undergone surgery in Mexico, they have recommended it, and some of them come back for other surgeries. What are the reasons Medical Tourism in Mexico is well-rated? Here are 4 reasons: 1) You can obtain all your medical care in the language you prefer; 2) Mexico is easily accessible by land and air, and the main cities where these international medical services are provided are very modern; 3) Clinics and hospitals have the latest equipment and therefore can provide the most advanced procedures, and 4) Plastic Surgeons and Bariatric Surgeons in Mexico are required to receive specialized training.

What should you do to ensure the best Medical Tourism? You must research your options to ensure safe and top-quality bariatric or plastic surgery in Mexico. So, take your time to check your medical provider options and ensure that the choices you are considering provide the 4 points we discussed in the previous paragraph.

At Health and Wellness Bazar, you will receive premium medical care in the best clinics and with health experts. We constantly ensure that the patients contacting us have the best experience possible. They always recommend us and often return in case they need other surgeries.

  • Surgeons in Mexico are not experienced

Myth: Doctors in Mexico are low quality. There is not enough training for Mexican doctors. You will get a bad result if you have plastic or bariatric surgery with a Mexican surgeon.

Fact: The same type of accreditation and training a surgeon needs in the US or Europe is required in Mexico. However, as in any part of the world, you must be careful with fake doctors. These “surgeons” use fake diplomas or certifications that do not accredit them as medical surgeons. A certified surgeon must have his medical license number and be part of the Mexican Association of Plastic, Aesthetic, and Reconstructive Surgery (AMCPER), equivalent to the American Board of Plastic Surgery in the United States.

What should you do to ensure the best Medical Tourism? To ensure that the doctor you select is trained and certified, research his surgeon thoroughly. Ask him about his training, medical license, experience, and if he is a member of AMCPER. If your doctor fulfills these requirements, you will be in the hands of an expert.

At Health and Wellness Bazar, we only work with the best plastic surgeons in Mexico. You can be confident that these surgeons are experts and have received extensive and highly specialized training. These experts will use the best surgical techniques available, ensuring a result that meets your expectations. They have the skills and professional trajectory necessary to provide the best medical service in the world. Additionally, they have the highest credentials, being prestigious plastic surgeons at a national and international level.

  • Prices in Mexico are so cheap because the materials and equipment they use are low quality

Myth: Hospitals in Mexico do not use FDA-approved materials and equipment. Medical services are not regulated. They are so cheap because they use cheap utensils and medicine.

Fact: The equipment you will find in private clinics and hospitals in Mexico is FDA-approved. The government regulates the facilities and equipment, and since medical tourism is vital for Mexico’s economy, they maintain high standards so that more come to Mexico. For this reason, private hospitals and clinics make an extra effort to be comfortable, modern, and safe for patients.

What should you do to ensure the best Medical Tourism? Don’t select your medical provider only based on their price. Sometimes cheap options can be costly eventually. So, take your time to check the facility and medical provider that you are considering in Mexico.
