In terms of up and coming hotspots for North American medical tourism, Tijuana shines. While Mexico acts as a magnet to millions of Western visitors every year to its exotic beaches, novelty attractions, and virtually unlimited options for recreation in perennially gorgeous weather, Tijuana has developed a well-respected, fast-advancing medical tourism industry, with clinics performing high-quality work at affordable pricing.

Compared to North American neighbors to the North and other nations of the West, the price differences are truly astounding. For nose jobs, you can save 54% when you visit our Medical Departures clinics in comparison to the Western average. For tummy tuck procedures, expect to save 50%. You can save 63% for your knee replacement. For gastric bypass, save 67%! The savings go on and on – for most medical procedures, you will pay less than half what you would expect to pay in your hometown!
