Why have Lap-Band® Surgery in Mexico?
Safe, Affordable, and Professional Lap-Band Surgery with Dr. Kuri & Hospital Angeles in Tijuana, Mexico
State of the Art Medical Facility
The $70 million dollar Hospital Angeles is a full-service facility featuring the most advanced medical equipment, a fully functioning Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Care, Blood Bank, MRI, CT as well as Emergency Services. Patients stay in Suites which include a private bathroom, Cable TV with DVD, and restful accommodations for a companion. Expertise Dr. Kuri, a general surgeon for over 30 years, has chosen to specialize in the Lap-Band procedure for the last 18 years. He has personally performed over 5,500 Lap-Band procedures. Considering that the Lap-Band was only recently approved in the US, most US surgeons do not have the extensive experience Dr. Kuri has, nor the impressive track record. Affordable The financial benefit to surgery outside of the US is significant. Our price is usually a fraction of our US competitors. Even those that have the option of using their insurance sometimes find that their out-of-pocket expenses exceed or match what they would pay Dr. Kuri for his all-inclusive package. Also, any medical related expense, including travel expenses, are tax deductible. Many patients have found that they get back a large portion of their expense in a tax return. (Always check with your tax specialist to see what will work for you.)
Travelling Is Easy
We have traveling for surgery down to a science. No matter what route you choose, we provide cross-border transportation to make the process as safe and simple as possible. We recommend a two night stay at the Palacio Azteca Hotel. If you choose to stay in a hotel, we provide transportation to and from the hotel and hospital as well. Bottom line is: you are cared for from the moment you arrive.
Availability of the Surgeon and Staff
One of the things Dr. Kuri’s patients appreciate most is the availability of he and his staff. Our office is open Monday through Saturday 8:30am – 8:00pm. During off hours, our phone rings directly to Dr. Kuri. Patients are frequently shocked when they get their surgeon in the middle of the night. You can’t get that sort of attention in the States!
Support – At Home and Abroad
Dr. Kuri has nearly 5,500 patients that are available to each other for support. We have an online support group called the Kuri Patient Board, in addition to a Patient Educator, team of Patient Facilitators, and other support staff.
Fill Providers: We have an extensive list of fill providers in various US cities and Canadian provinces. Included is information on how to contact the provider, how much the fill appointments cost (they vary), and any other additional information available. Many patients choose to sometimes use a local provider, but to check in with Dr. Kuri now and again for a fill and check up. Dr. Kuri’s fills are FREE FOR LIFE. He loves seeing his patients post surgery!
