CIUDAD JUAREZ, CHIH (PRWEB) November 23, 2017
Obese Americans can transform their bodies at a fraction of the price by opting to have bariatric surgery in Mexico, through the scheduling firm TrueSelf Surgical.
“American healthcare costs are outrageous,” said Daniel Calvo, a spokesperson for the firm. “We connect patients with healthcare providers who perform the same high-quality medical procedures at significantly lower prices so that anyone who can benefit from surgery, can.”
In the United States, bariatric surgery can cost anywhere between $20,000 and $30,000 without insurance. In Mexico, the cost is between $6,500 and $7,000. Weight loss surgery is excluded from many insurance policies.
Medical Tourism is an increasingly popular option for Americans looking for more affordable healthcare alternatives. According to Patients Without Borders, while estimates vary, the number of patients traveling to Mexico for medical purposes is anywhere between 200,000 and 1.1 million.
“Often Americans equate cost with quality,” Calvo said. “But our equipment and facilities are first class, and Dr. Diaz is a trusted surgeon with over 12 years of experience performing weight loss surgeries.”
TrueSelf surgical connects patients with Dr. Antonio Diaz. Diaz has been practicing medicine for 17 years, has received advanced bariatric training in the U.S., is certified by the National General Surgery Association, and is a member of the Mexican Association of Endoscopic Surgery.
According to Mexican bariatric surgeon Dr. Rosales, U.S. surgeons are constrained by their relationships with medical supply companies and fear of malpractice lawsuits. Mexican healthcare providers commonly reduce patient costs by minimizing excessive, expensive unnecessary testing, and using smaller facilities.
In addition to the weight loss surgery and related healthcare services, TrueSelf Surgical’s bariatric packages include transportation from El Paso, Texas to the Lourdes Surgical Center in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and accommodations for both the patient and a supporting loved one throughout the process.
