Why Should You Opt For a Physician in Mexico

Posted by Dr. Santiago Hernandez, June 3, 2015

ID-100184687Last year, people in the US spent a staggering sum of $3.8 trillion on medical expenses. With the health costs soaring and the economy suffering, many people are now making their way to other countries which offer trusted medical help.

Mexico has been at the forefront of medical research for a long time now. Like many developing countries, it first started out as a struggle, but as time goes on, Mexico has made many breakthroughs in medicine. With doctors and physicians in every field in high demand for their expertise, Mexico is becoming a very favorable place for people with medical problems. In fact, many people who have visited Mexico for medical purposes have reported receiving the same high quality treatment as they did back in the United States, albeit at a significantly lower cost, making it affordable for many.

Quality treatment and affordable travel

Throughout the years, there have been many misconceptions that medical training in Mexico is below par, but with physicians being trained in the U.S and other countries, they have proven this to be wrong. Choosing a physician can be difficult and challenging, and choosing one based on their success in the field is crucial.

People are flying from many countries to be treated in Mexico because they get quality treatment at a low cost and have a shorter waiting time. Statistics show 6 million people travel overseas for medical purposes every year, and for many, Mexico is their destination. Switching from a previous doctor is not easy, but if you find one who is better suited to your case then it can work to your advantage to have a physician who knows your case better if they have dealt with similar cases before. With the increasing number of people coming to Mexico every year, it would not be a surprise if the doctor has not already seen a case like yours before and knows how to deal with it.

Mexico is a developing country, but the increasing numbers of medical success stories are enough to convince anyone. Physicians in Mexico are being favored because they do not come with the baggage of expensive costs, and with the trip, many people make a holiday out of it. If you are going for a heart surgery, not only is it cheaper in Mexico than in America, but also comes with the assurance of proper physicians attending to you.

Medical research in Mexico

Mexico is also excelling in research and helping the medical world achieve many breakthroughs, and leads the pack when it comes to many medical procedures. Institutions for stem cell therapy, cancer research and even plastic surgery are now accepting doctors from all over the world and helping them in their respective fields. Many doctors in the U.S. have praised Mexican hospitals for their cancer treatments such as Systemic Ozonized Hyperthermia (SO3 Hyperthermia) which can, at times, successfully treat even late stage cancer without side effects or invasive therapies. Mexican clinics have had great success with their medical practices and with the prediction of more than 10 million people seeking medical assistance to travel there in the later years, Mexican physicians have a bright future.

Choosing a physician is difficult if you don’t have good choices, but as doctors in Mexico reach new heights in medicine, people are turning their attention to such better options. Mexico was once a struggling country, but with time, hard work and determination, Mexico has become one of the most favored places to go to for medical treatment in the world.
