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 weight-loss surgery can undergo the procedure 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.
Why Should I Have Weight-Loss Surgery in Mexico?
Bariatric surgery or weight-loss surgery helps patients with extreme obesity to lose weight. There are various types of weight-loss surgeries in which the surgeon makes changes to the stomach or intestine or both in order to restrict the intake of food. The surgery is recommended only when patients have tried non-surgical methods of weight-loss such as a change of diet and regular exercise, and they have failed to see results. Mexico 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 world-class 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.
