Traveling for surgery

Patients travel for surgery for different reasons, some find themselves uninsured or not covered for gastric sleeve or bypass surgery and unable to pay the excessive self-pay price for surgery in the United States.

While others prefer the experience, charm, and attentiveness of affordable private medical care in Mexico.

We will care for you and be by your side regardless of your reason from the moment you decide to have surgery to the time you achieve your weight loss goal.
