What is Medical Tourism?

Medical tourism, also known as medical travel or health tourism, is a term initially coined by travel agencies and the mass media to describe the rapidly-growing practice of traveling to another country to obtain healthcare.

For nearly 10 years, we’ve worked closely with medical tourism companies and patients to obtain affordable bariatric surgery at Blossom Bariatrics, instead of traveling abroad. We’re excited to announce Blossom’s Fast Track program – designed to directly assist our traveling patients instead of using a third party medical tourism company! Our program includes hotel accommodations and ground transportation during a 5-day stay in beautiful Las Vegas!

US Standards vs. Standards Abroad

Medically & Legally

Mexico clinics do not have to adhere to the same guidelines as clinics and surgeons in the US. In the US, patients are protected by healthcare laws and practice standards.

Mexican law prohibits lawsuits. Yes, you read that correctly. Suing a physician for malpractice is never an option just south of the border because Mexican law does not allow for the same sorts of tort (personal injury) lawsuits that are common in the U.S.

Blossom Bariatrics has completed over 10,000 cases since its inception in 2008! We are one of few clinics in the United States with 3 board certified, fellowship trained bariatric surgeons on staff. Our team of over 50 dedicated bariatric professionals adhere to the strict guidelines of the ASMBS and take client care and client outcomes extremely seriously. Most procedures are performed at our dedicated surgery center, WarmSpringsSurgicalCenter.com
