Mexico Bariatric Surgery

Leaving Canada For Health Care

Over 63,000 people left Canada to receive non-emergency medical treatment in 2016, according to Fraser Institute Report. Each year Canadians from BC, AB, SK, MB, ON, QC, NB, NS, PE, and NL travel abroad to receive services in the 12 major medical specialties: plastic surgery, gynaecology, ophthalmology, general surgery, neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, cardiovascular surgery, urology, internal medicine, radiation oncology, and medical oncology.[1]  The 2016 numbers show a 39% increase over the year before. Province of British Columbia reported the highest percentage of patients (2.4%) and Province of Ontario reported the largest number of patients (26,513). One possible explanation for Canadians traveling abroad could be the long wait times for medically necessary treatments (10.6 weeks).

The wait time for Canadians with obesity and comorbidities to get life-changing bariatric surgery is much worse – it average of 2 to 12 years. Mexico offers attractive packages for Canadians to get bariatrics abroad.

Why Undergo Bariatric Surgery in Mexico

In Canada, experts estimate that more than a million Canadians are morbidly obese- most have high blood pressure, diabetes, bad joints and increased risk of heart disease. Obesity is not about laziness or lack of self-control. The reasons may vary from physical to psychological reasons.

Now, researchers have found that the bariatric surgery is a medical necessity for all these people, which was once considered a vanity surgery. The weight loss surgery is an effective way for all these people to reduce the risks.

Canada patients wait times for bariatric surgery range from 5 to 6 years due to insurance and shortage of surgeons. If anyone does not want to wait to have to self-pay and receive treatment in a private facility. This private facility is more expensive.

The less expensive, affordable and convenient one would be considering the surgery in Mexico. The surgeons are efficient and hospitals are safe in Mexico.

By undergoing the surgery in Mexico most of the Canadians are reducing their wait time and health risks.
