Guadalajara, Jalisco (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
In recent years medical tourism in Mexico has become very popular with local and foreign patients. In fact, a recent study published by several media outlets across the USA, Canada and the UK confirms that Mexico has become the most obese nation in the world, surpassing the USA for the first time. The term medical tourism can be applied equally to international travelers seeking healthcare abroad, as well as patients traveling domestically inside their own country in need of weight loss surgery.
Mexico delivers one of the best private health networks worldwide, highly trained medical staff which in many cases studied and practiced medicine in the US, Europe and Asia before settling their private medical centers back home. Many private hospitals in Mexico hold JCI accreditation and well exceed international standards of care. When you combine all that with surgery prices that can be as much as 60% lower than those in neighboring countries, undoubtedly thousands of patients are attracted to receiving medical treatment in Mexico.
One of the leading bariatric surgeons in Mexico is Dr. Jose A. Castaneda. The launch of his new bariatric website GastricBypassMexico.com has grown exponentially over the past few months and is now considered one of the best online resources for national and foreign patients seeking weight loss surgery in Mexico.
“At GastricBypassMexico we provide several options for patients suffering from obesity, diabetes and weight related diseases; Gastric banding, gastric bypass, duodenal switch by laparoscopy, gastric sleeve or metabolic surgery, and very soon we´ll be adding new innovative procedures to improve the lives of our patients”, says Dr. Castaneda.
Dr Castaneda has been at the forefront of internet innovation for many years. He recently launched the new BariatricApp dedicated to helping patients seeking bariatric surgery, or patients that have already undergone a weight loss operation with him. The new website WeightLossSurgeryinMexico.com launched in early summer 2013 has received thousands of unique visitors and is also a great resource for patients.
Undoubtedly, the increasing costs of health care in the United States combined with a huge obesity epidemic in Mexico as well as the USA are key motivators driving more diabetes sufferers and obese patients toward medical tourism in Mexico and expert bariatric surgeons like Dr. Castaneda.
