Deciding to undergo a medical procedure out of the country is an important decision to make, and oftentimes people do not know where to begin the process. The good news is that over the years as international travel for medicine has become more common-place, companies arose to fill a need. That need entails helping patients navigate making arrangements, including everything from selecting a surgeon, to selecting a hospital, to arranging for airfare, and booking hotel accommodations and transfers.
The cost of medical care has skyrocketed for a number of reasons, and the result is that patients are now flocking to places like Mexico where excellent medical care is available, and is available at a price far below what is otherwise offered in the Unites States and elsewhere. The Canadians face a slightly different dilemma and that entails having to wait indefinitely for a needed procedure. This has prompted patients from Canada to also seek medical care out of their country as a way to ensure autonomy over medical decisions.
A Little Effort Upfront Goes a Long Way
If you are considering a medical procedure in Mexico, there are a few key concepts that will help you along the way. Firstly, ISA Surgical has established itself with highly qualified doctors within the private healthcare system. These relationships allow ISA Surgical to coordinate for patients affordable care, and yet handsomely pay these surgeons in Mexico for the work that they do. As one would expect, when healthcare is privatized, the most qualified and best-performing doctors are the most successful. When a patient works with ISA Surgical, these are the doctors they have access to.
Similarly, ISA Surgical is not only acutely focused on fostering partnerships with top-notch providers, but also ensures that patients are given the opportunity to specify their individual and unique needs. This thoughtful pairing of patients to doctors ensures that both parties will find it to be a good fit, which is important for the patient’s surgical success and recovery.
ISA Surgical is also the patient’s advocate. This is an important role, especially given that some patients will be traveling to a country they have not previously visited and therein will undergo an important medical procedure. This is a lot more important than coordinating a holiday cruise, and ISA Surgical acknowledges that. As the patient’s liaison, ISA Surgical is able to oversee all aspects of the process, from start to finish, and middle too. One patient put it this way, “If I’d take a guided tour at the art museum, why would I not enlist the services of a ‘guide’ for a medical procedure impacting my life.”
