Weight Loss Surgery in Puerto Vallarta Mexico

Puerto Vallarta’s and all of Mexico’s Medical Tourism exists because of us! Dr. Joya started doing Medical Tourism more than 14 years ago… We were the first practice in Mexico to offer vacation packages for surgery and have done more procedures than any other doctor in Mexico.

Many people see lower priced doctors in the dangerous border towns, and everyone has heard the horror stories of the guest houses being robbed at gunpoint, the dangers of the border town, the violence in those towns, etc etc… and that is why you should consider coming to beautiful Puerto Vallarta, a safe, vacation town, far from the violence of the borders.

Now you may ask why should I pay a little more money for my surgery? Well for one, in Puerto Vallarta you get quality, safety, a modern state of the art hospital, no sitting in border traffic for hours on end, and medical supplies purchased directly from the Medical Supplier. Dr. Joya has never and will never use Black Market Medical supplies that you may find being used by the lower priced doctors. We do not use Chinese manufactured supplies or inferior supplies. All of the Medical Equipment is disposable and purchased directly from the manufacturer. We strongly recommend that you do not go to Tijuana as you may end up with substandard care and or facilities.

Now let us try to show you a few differences so that you can evaluate your options when choosing to have surgery in Puerto Vallarta with Dr. Joya or in a border town where you may save a few dollars…

This is the San Diego Border Crossing… if you can see the traffic both going into and out of Mexico, you will sit in a van for hours trying to get into and out of the border before and after your surgery (even though the airport is supposedly only 25 minutes away).

Here is Puerto Vallarta’s International Airport located 5 minutes from the 5 Star Beach resort we use for your stay and recovery and only 5 minutes from our State of the Art Hospital… no sitting in a van in traffic, and when you leave Vallarta most of the time you will be home before your plane would have even taken off to get home from San Diego…
Next, here are some of the border town facilities…

These are the facilities that are used in the border town… they are nothing compared to the actual hospital you will have in Puerto Vallarta.

Now if you do choose to save a little money and go to the border towns, postop you will either go to a guesthouse or a smaller hotel… In Puerto Vallarta we include a Beach Resort which was ranked top 4 hotels in all of Puerto Vallarta on Tripadvisor. The Sunset Plaza Hotel.

As you can see, coming to safe and beautiful Puerto Vallarta is not only a better value than going to the border for your surgery, but you will have far superior facilities, a real hospital, and the foremost doctor in Mexico doing your Bariatric Surgery.
