Tijuana is known for being one of the most visited destinations in Mexico for foreigners looking for medical treatment. Patients from all over the world, especially the United States and Canada, flock to Tijuana every year to receive affordable and high quality medical care.
One of the main reasons Tijuana is such a popular destination is its location. In fact, Tijuana is only 15 minutes away from the San Diego airport and just a couple of hours away by air from some of the main cities in the United States.
Another very important factor for Tijuana’s popularity in the area of medical tourism is the quality of the medical services and private hospitals, most medical staff is bilingual and surgeons are usually trained or have studied in the United States or Europe. In addition, these surgeons are certified by the health care system authorities in Mexico and some are also certified by international medical groups.
One of the reasons for Tijuana’s popularity is the variety of treatments offered in this city’s hospitals, from cosmetic procedures such as face lifts, bbl’s (brazilian butt lift), FUE hair transplants, to dental care procedures, bariatric surgeries, stem cell therapies, among other similar procedures.
Cost is another important factor that foreign patients take into consideration when choosing Tijuana.
