Officials announce the creation in Merida of a dental cryopreservation laboratory.
MERIDA — With the increase in the exchange rate of the dollar, health tourism in Yucatan will generate even more than the three million dollars per year previously received. Mérida receives and treats between three thousand and four thousand patients, said Armando Noguera Aguilar, general director of Dental Perfect, a company that will invest 25 million pesos in the city during 2017.
In a press conference at El Gran Café, held in February, Noguer Aguilar said that dental health tourism treats seven million people each year in Mexico, so as Mérida turns into a cluster for the medical sector, there is an enormous potential to attract new customers.
The reason why there is health tourism in Merida, he explained, is because in the United States a dental implant can cost between five thousand and six thousand dollars, while in Yucatan only one thousand dollars.
To the state also come visitors from Europe, for the same economic benefit, he said. People prefer to go to Mexico, because they find the same quality with better prices, he said.
The investment of 25 million pesos to be held in Merida has as its objective the creation of three clinics and a laboratory for cryopreservation of dental stem cells, spaces that will create 150 direct jobs for skilled workers and 450 indirect ones; Its presence will increase dental health tourism by 25 percent, he predicted.
In about 10 years, dental stem cells will regenerate neuronal, bone, muscle, heart and some organs to treat problems such as Alzheimer’s or brain tumors.
With this scenario, he said that the quality of life of the human being is expected to increase in 10 years over the next decade, due to research in the branch worldwide, in places such as Germany, Switzerland and even Mexico.
