According the Web site of Dr. Alicia Sigler, Mexico represents a wonderful place to have surgical procedures, due to the experience of local doctors, the low costs of traveling and staying in Mexico, accompanied by the medical infrastructure of the private hospitals in the whole country.
- – Experience:
After obtaining their graduate degrees and respective specializations, many Mexican doctors attend foreign conferences and keep themselves updated with the latest developments in their fields. Languages are not a barrier, with doctors developing great competencies to communicate with patients. Also, most Mexican doctors treat a larger number of patients as compared to their American counterparts, which gives them the benefit of additional experience.
- – Affordable costs:
Surgeries performed in Mexico are very inexpensive compared to surgeries made in USA.
The low cost of living in the country translates into low costs of medical services, accommodations, medicines, meals and travel arrangements, without sacrificing quality. In addition, a consensus between Goverment and Surgeons lowers the prices to even a fraction of the original costs, making Mexico the second largest host of medical tourism worldwide.
- – Infrastructure:
The hospitals in Mexico are well-known for their excellent infrastructure, which is reflected in their cutting-edge technology, advanced equipment, ultra-modern labs, and well-equipped patient rooms. Many among these hospitals have received Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation, which serves as an evidence to the high standard of treatment and patient care. These healthcare centers are stringent about adherence to international norms of sterilization for ensuring the safety of all patients prior to, during, and after the surgery.
- – Proximity
After having a surgery, the distance to return home is key to take into account. Mexico eliminates the strains of an uncomfortable journey, having a better chance for recovery and being at home faster. An added advantage of traveling to a neighboring country also means limited transportation expenditure and fewer communication barriers.
