What is Medical Tourism?

What is Medical Tourism and why are so many Americans taking advantage of it?

With medical care expenses continuously on the rise in the US, and a dire lack of affordable healthcare treatment, it’s no wonder why so many people are turning to medical tourism to meet their needs. In short, Medical tourism is the act of traveling someplace different to receive affordable medical procedures you otherwise couldn’t where you are. This might look like leaving your state to receive plastic surgery, traveling to Turkey for a hair transplant or visiting Mexico for a gastric sleeve surgery.


In the United States, one of the most popular treatments that patients pursue outside of the US is bariatric surgery. The typical patient can expect to pay anywhere between $20,000 to $25,000 (WebMD, 2024) before insurance kicks in for bariatric surgery in the United States. Not only this, but several insurances don’t even even cover bariatric treatments, leaving thousands of Americans left with no other choice but to pay for these often life changing treatments directly out of pocket. Thousands of dollars get thrown away for a few hours in the hospital with little regard to your experience before and after your surgery. This is one of many reasons why so many Americans choose the medical tourism industry to meet their medical needs.


How to choose Medical Tourism and who to trust…


Medical tourism can be intimidating and there are several factors to consider before seeking treatment outside of the United States. As a medical tourist, one of the greatest challenges that people face when considering medical tourism is finding surgeons that they can trust. TreVita specializes in providing safe, simple and affordable bariatric surgeries for Americans seeking affordable bariatric care. For over four years, TreVita has partnered with world class bariatric surgeons in Tijuana, Mexico, connecting American’s with the best possible bariatric procedures they could receive outside of the US, at a price they could afford. Each of our trusted surgeons are US Board Certified surgeons and they’ve all gone through a rigorous vetting process before we established our partnership with them. No matter which type of bariatric surgery you choose through TreVita, you’re getting the absolute best.


Another aspect to consider with medical tourism is the travel and accommodation. When you book a surgery in the United States, you’re only paying for the surgery itself plus the hospital stay and care that you receive. You aren’t guaranteed transport to your appointments, a hotel stay if you’re traveling a long distance to your appointment or anything in between. Not only that, but you have to do all of the medical care coordination yourself, from scheduling your appointments and vetting out the best treatments, to meeting with the bariatric surgeons. At TreVita, we take care of it all. With our service, we handle everything from pre-surgery support and accommodations and transportation, to post-op support even after you leave our care. Our entire process is client-focused to support your well-being at every step of your weight loss journey with us. With TreVita, all you have to do is focus on you. We’ll take care of the rest.
