What is Medical Tourism?
Medical tourism is a term used to describe patients traveling to another destination to receive medical care. It is estimated that close to 50 million tourists travel each year to undergo a medical tourism treatment. Tijuana is an especially popular destination for patients traveling from the United States due to its close proximity to the Mexico-U.S. border and its numerous attractions.
