You are allowed to bring one person with you free of charge. All rooms are equipped to accommodate your guest throughout your stay. Your client coordinator can answer any questions you and your guest may have, including local recommendations. Please keep in mind that your companion can stay for free, but their meals are not included.
The facilities we work with are issued a special medical tourism pass to ensure a hassle-free border crossing!
Unfortunately, no we do not provide that service.
You are responsible for your travel to San Diego. Once you have your flight info, you send it to us so we can arrange for pick up at the airport and take you to your hotel and surgical facility in Tijuana, Mexico.
Nearly 40 million Americans safely travel to Mexico every year. Many of those people had already been and chose to keep going back. The more important question is about your medical safety. This is where choosing a trustworthy organization like TreVita is important. We do in-depth research on potential business partners and get to know them before working with them. So you can trust that you will receive high-quality care and overall experience when using our services. If you are unfamiliar with the area and/or do not speak the language, the chances of receiving the same quality of care and services you would have received through an organization like TreVita are low.
We have you covered.
Transportation to and from the airport is on us. One of our dedicated drivers will pick you up from the airport and take you directly to your hotel and surgical center in Tijuana. At the end of your stay, we will drive you back to the San Diego Airport.
All of our client coordinators and surgeons speak English and there is always a fluent English-speaking staff member on the floor at all times (even after hours).
TreVita has been in business since 2018, but our team and our subject matter experts have many decades of combined experience. Our partner facilities and medical staff are some of the best available with long track records of success and quality patient care.
The risks of a complication vary by surgical procedure. Your bariatric surgeon will review the potential risks and complications with you before surgery. If you have a complication after discharge from the hospital, your bariatric surgeon and their teams will assist you in solving the issue.
Your surgeon will advise on that. When you fill out your application and medical questionnaire, we send it to your chosen surgical facility. The doctor will review the information you provide and discuss your best surgical options with you. Then he or she will approve you for one of the procedures offered that best addresses your medical concerns.
Post-operative weight loss can vary greatly between patients and procedures performed, but historically we’ve seen somewhere between 50%-70% total excess weight loss in the first 6 months.
Surgery time and recovery is often specific to the patient and the procedure being performed. That said, most procedures take less than a few hours with a total hospital day not exceeding 3 nights. If, however, you’d like additional time to recover and relax, rooms are available in the hospital’s “hotel” wing for an additional cost. Specific instructions for post-operative recovery once you’re back in the U.S. will be provided by your surgeon.
After your surgery you retain the ability to communicate with your surgeon and their staff. Additionally, you will have access to the TreVita Wellness Subscription to empower and guide you as progress.
You must be at least 18 years old, or the age of legal majority in your jurisdiction of residence, to register with and use the TreVita service.
When shopping for medical tourism services you’ll likely find a broad range of prices between different procedures, surgeons, and facilities. This is because not all procedures cost the same amount and not all facilities/surgeons are made equal. The same can be said of services like travel, recovery accommodations and follow-up care. There are also differences between how providers will display their prices: some are all-inclusive, while others are full of hidden fees.
We accept several convenient payment methods. You can find more information here.
