What is Medical Tourism in Mexico?

“Medical tourism” is an increasingly popular trend among people around the world seeking medical treatment. The term describes the growing inclination that individuals have to travel to a different country to receive medical care.

In fact, many of the patients that we treat at VIDA Wellness and Beauty do not live locally in Tijuana, Mexico. Instead, they travel from all over the world to receive treatment at our all-inclusive hospital. Many individuals come from San Diego, Calif., which is located just a short drive from us, across the Mexico-United States border. Others have come from as far away as Europe and Australia.

Find out why so many people are willing — and happy — to travel from both near and far locations around the world to receive surgical, medical, wellness and beauty treatments at VIDA.

Highest-Quality Care

Individuals who travel to VIDA from other parts of the world, whether they come from San Diego, Calif., our neighbor to the north, or from countries located thousands of miles away, are happy to do so thanks to our top-quality surgical, medical, wellness and cosmetic care.

This is because our patients know that the health, wellness and beauty experts at VIDA use only the most modern technology and most advanced treatment approaches. They also realize that our surgeons and other physicians are board-certified in each of their respective specialties. Many of our surgeons and physicians attended medical school and underwent advanced training fellowships at globally renowned institutions in the United States, and are licensed to work in both the United States and Mexico.

In addition, our surgical facility is internationally accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). We were the first surgical center in Mexico to receive international accreditation, demonstrating our commitment to upholding the highest standards of surgical care, safety, and sanitation.

Economical Care

Another incredibly important reason individuals travel thousands of miles to receive treatment at VIDA is that we offer cost-effective health, wellness, and beauty care. The cost of our procedures is generally about 50 percent less than the cost of the exact same procedures in the United States and Europe. Not to mention, our procedures are performed by equally qualified — if not more qualified — surgeons and other physicians.

All-Inclusive Care

Also, our out-of-town patients are pleased to travel to VIDA for care thanks to our all-inclusive, “one-stop” facility. At VIDA Wellness and Beauty, we offer a broad range of services, including plastic surgery, bariatric surgery, cosmetic dentistrydermatology, gynecology, urology, hair centerIV therapy, nonsurgical cosmetic treatments and so much more.

Furthermore, our surgical patients are able to recuperate in our comfortable, stylish recovery boutique. Our recovery boutique features single and double rooms with hospital-style beds, private bathrooms, high-definition televisions, free international calls to the United States and Canada and modern sleek interior design. Our recovery boutique also offers 24-hour nursing care, a dining room with delectable cuisine, a business center with free Internet access and a relaxing common area, among several other convenient amenities.

World-Class Destination

Finally, individuals come from all over the world to receive treatment at VIDA because we are located in a world-class vacation destination. VIDA is located on the Baja Peninsula in sunny, warm Mexico. With warm weather, access to the Pacific Ocean, rich culture and history, tasty local cuisine such as fresh lobster and so many sites to visit, Mexico is the perfect place in which to combine medical treatment and fun vacation.
