Patients have been receiving treatment through medical tourism during the COVID-19 pandemic safely and effectively. Hospitals, surgical facilities, and hotels in Mexico are kept very clean to protect patients and staff.
The New York Times recently reported that medical tourism is still alive and thriving in Mexico during the pandemic:
The U.S. / Mexico border is technically closed but those travelling for medical purposes are permitted to drive through and back. It’ll be important to find the right ground transportation company to safely drive you across the border. At TreVita, our medical tourism packages include private ground transportation to get you there and back.
At TreVita, we have put in place additional safety measures to protect the health of our patients and the medical staff. Read below or visit our COVID-19 page for more information.
Safety Precautions for Medical Travel during COVID-19
- All patients and travel companions required to take PCR Test 5 days prior to surgery. NOTE: please bring negative test results for the doctor to review.
