Each year hundreds of thousands of international patients seeking outstanding medical care at reduced rates visit hospitals in Mexico. Junomedical has partnered with Mexico’s top, internationally- accredited hospitals so patients seeking a male-to-female gender reassignment procedure can undergo this highly specialized branch of surgery at up to 80% less than the average cost in the U.K., U.S., and Australia and receive the same quality of care as they would in their homeland.
Male-to-female sex reassignment surgery involves a number of procedures where the ultimate goal of most patients seeking a full transition is to re-shape the penis into a vagina (vaginoplasty). Sex reassignment surgery is usually pursued by individuals who identify with a gender different than the one assigned at birth, known to the medical community as gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria is the distress that an individual experiences when the anatomical sex assigned at birth doesn’t correspond with the gender that the individual identifies with mentally, socially, and culturally. A handful of the world's top gender reassignment surgeons are based in Mexico, which is home to 8 JCI-accredited hospitals. JCI or Joint Commission International represents the gold standard in global health care, with accredited hospitals boasting the latest technology and the best doctors. Aside from its top notch hospitals Mexico is also an incredible tourist destination. Cancun and Playa del Carmen on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula are surrounded by Mayan and Aztec ruins, as well as natural attractions including the national park of Isla Contoy which has a variety of bird and plant species and the Isla Holbox where visitors can go swimming with massive whale sharks. Tijuana just across the border from the United States also has a lot to offer. As well as its shops, restaurants and bars, Tijuana boasts a dynamic urban art scene, contemporary galleries, and arty cafes.
