Yes! Getting your surgery in Mexico is just as safe as it is in America.
If you only take your information from the news then you'd think that Mexico is dangerous, but that's simply not the case. It's just as safe in Mexico as it is in Michigan.
All of the hospitals our surgeons practice out of are in clean, upscale areas that are well protected by a 24/7 police presence.
Like anywhere, some surgeons are more skilled than others. We submit each of our surgeons to a rigorous verification process to determine if they're at least as good as the best surgeons in America.
We qualify our surgeons based on:
- Education history (most of our surgeons have studied and trained in America)
- Professional history
- Experience and success rates
- Memberships within prestigious medical societies
- And much more
Depending on the surgery you choose you could be back home within 4 days of arriving in Mexico. Most people only require 3 - 5 days before they're recovered enough to travel back home.
The average costs of bariatric surgery in Mexico:
- Gastric Sleeve ($4,000 - $7,000)
- Gastric Bypass ($5,500 - $10,000)
- Duodenal Switch ($6,500 - $11,000)
Surgery in Mexico is cheaper for many reasons:
- Favorable exchange rates
- Low cost of living
- Smaller wages for medical staff
- More efficient healthcare system
Arguably, Mexico tends to offer the biggest bang for your buck when compared to the outrageous prices of the American healthcare system
Usually, the only thing not included in the package price are your flights. Everything else is covered including:
- Transfer between airport, hospital, and hotel
- 4 or 5-star accommodation
- All pre and post-op guidelines and instructions
- All pre and post-op evaluations
- Two Surgeons in the operating room with you
- Operating room costs
- Pre and post-op medication
How It Works
1. Compare Surgeons
We work with the top surgeons in Mexico and Costa Rica to get you the care you need without breaking the bank. After you reach out, you'll get detailed information so you can choose who best fits your needs and budget
2. Message Instantly
After you've selected your top surgeons, you can contact them instantly with all of your questions. They'll walk you through everything step-by-step
3. Book It
After your surgeon has confirmed you're eligible, you'll choose a date that fits your schedule, pay a small deposit to reserve your spot, and get your pre-op instructions
The big day is finally here! We take care of all the logistics from airport transfers and accommodation to translators and food. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the journey
Upon arrival, you'll go to the hospital to meet your surgeon and his team in person. You'll get a few pre-op tests to make sure you're good to go, and then it's time!
Post-surgery, you'll stay a few days in the hospital to ensure you recover as expected. As soon as you're cleared for travel we'll drive you back to the airport and say our goodbyes
