Bariatric Surgery World Launches Weight-loss Surgery Specials in Tijuana
With lowered-costs of weight-loss surgeries in Tijuana, Bariatric Surgery World has brought a great opportunity for the obese to get the required medical intervention and go for a bariatric surgery in Tijuana, Mexico.
May 30, 2013 (Newswire.com) - A leader in medical tourism for bariatric surgery abroad, Bariatric Surgery World, is now offering affordable weight loss surgery specials from its trusted network of hospitals in Tijuana, Mexico. U.S. and Canadian citizens who are obese and desire to lose weight, but can't afford the expensive surgeries in their hometowns, can now find excellent deals on gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and lap band in Tijuana.
With these latest offers, the company sees the life-changing weight-loss surgery becoming accessible to those who had settled with obesity and its related co-morbidities, primarily because they feared the expenses associated with such procedures in their local healthcare systems.
Tijuana is one of Mexico's most popular medical tourism hubs. Its hospitals and clinics see thousands of foreign visitors each year who are coming for discounted rates on everything from dental work to knee replacement surgery. Weight-loss surgery, being expensive, important, and often not-covered-by-insurance, is among the most-sought.
The prices start as low as $5,000 but vary with individual case and patient requirement. To find out about the estimated expenses in your case, all you need to do is to contact the company via a simple form on their website and let their representatives get back to you with all the details you need.
Bariatric Surgery World works with a number of the city's leading hospitals. These fully integrated medical facilities are some of the best hospitals in the country, and attract the most skilled surgeons from all across Mexico.
One of Bariatric Surgery World's most trusted partner hospitals is often the top choice for foreign patients seeking low-cost sleeve surgery in Mexico. Its bariatric surgery division is fully equipped with the latest surgical technologies. This enables the hospital to offer the same cutting edge procedures, such as laparoscopic surgeries, as hospitals in the United States. The hospital also boasts an in-house laboratory, an intensive care unit, and an in-house pharmacy.
Going under the knife, and that in a foreign country, can be a stressful ordeal. In order to make foreign visitors as comfortable as possible, the hospital has private rooms that are air conditioned and outfitted with televisions, wireless internet access, and telephones which patients can use to call the U.S. for free.
The most convenient aspect of this hospital, however, is its location. Indeed, Tijuana has an advantage over other cities in Mexico in that it is directly across the border from San Diego, California. This proximity to such a large metropolitan area in the U.S. makes it possible for American patients to take only domestic flights, in effect saving even more.
But Bariatric Surgery World takes this level of convenience one step further by offering pick-up service at the San Diego airport for patients coming for sleeve, banding, or gastric bypass in Tijuana. This gratis transportation has been cited by former satisfied patients as one of the best perks of their services. It cuts out another potential source of stress for patients, as they don't have to worry about the logistics of getting around in a strange place with very different traffic laws and practices.
Those interested can find a number of testimonies from the satisfied customers of Bariatric Surgery World on its website. One such customer was Susan Spencer from Texas. Bariatric Surgery World helped her plan a trip to Tijuana for gastric sleeve surgery and she was very impressed with the care she received.
"I was taken care of. I was picked up from the airport [and] driven everywhere I wanted to go. There were always medical professionals looking after me and then they took me back after they were sure I was on the road to recovery," said Spencer.
She paid only 5,200 dollars for her gastrectomy, a procedure that she goes on to say cost a friend of hers 41,000 dollars in the U.S. After receiving such quality care at such a low price, Spencer unreservedly shares her experience with others and dispels the myth that the quality of healthcare in Tijuana is not as good as what they would receive at home.
