Significant Cost Saving
Saving money is by far one of the biggest reasons why people prefer Mexico for medical treatments. Many people wonder if the cost saving on their medical treatment in Mexico will be counteracted by the airfare and accommodation costs of traveling south of the border. However, the financial benefits of choosing medical procedures in Mexico are still substantial. Most of the treatments in Mexico cost up to 50% and 75% cheaper than those in the U.S.
For example, lap band surgery costs in U.S are between $14,000 and $17,000, while in Mexico same surgery costs merely around $7,000 in a top clinic. That is why most patients
remain satisfied knowing that even after having travelled across the border, they
can still save a considerable amount of money.

wait times in Mexico are virtually unheard of, and in many cases, you could expect
to be able to book in for your procedure within a few weeks of your consultation.
