Daylight in Tijuana, Mexico

Dental work completed, I was delighted to meet-up again with Dr. Jorge Serrano, one of the Directors of BajaMedGroup.com

Dr. Serrano and I met a few weeks ago at the MediTourExpo in Las Vegas. Coincidentally, one of the group’s facilities is located in the Grand Hotel. Consider… all the conveniences in one “Grand” location for both, AmericanBio and BajaMed.

The handsome and charming Dr. Serrano hooked me up with Dr. Francisco Gonzalez,Bariatric Surgeon in Tijuana for the last 15 years, who was equally as good looking and most charming, as well. Dr. Gonzalez is so obviously dedicated to his profession and passionate about the benefits and results of of Bariatric Surgery for his patients.

BajaMedGroup is located on the 16th floor of the Grand Hotel Mall, a quick elevator ride up from AmericanBioDental.

The day/outpatient, and longer stay rooms are comfortably appointed with incredible views of this growing city. The busy operating room is first class. Safety from hospital acquired infections is assured because the numbers in Tijuana are less than 1%. Whereas, in the US, UK and Canada, hospital acquired infections are astounding – more than 60% – reason enough to consider surgery in Mexico.

Cost for Bariatric surgery at JajaMedGroup is around $6,000. compared to the U.S., where prices range anywhere from $17,000. – $35,000. depending upon which state you choose to have the procedure. That’s an incredible savings! The www.BajaMedGroup.com website also offers a payment plan.

I’m not affiliated with BajaMedGroup, but as I discover more information, I’m considering it for the future. I was really impressed with the education, experience and caliber of these Mexican surgeons, as well as their idea of follow-up. Questions? Don’t hesitate to contact me. I took a few photos. Don’t hesitate to check out their website for more info and better pix.



American Bio Dental Center is the only clinic in Mexico certified to provide 100% of the “Huggins Protocol” for Dental revision and detoxification. The clinic received it’s training personally, from Hal Huggins, DDS, MS, who is noted for pioneering the field of Holistic or Biological Dentistry with his outspoken insights on the hazards of mercury fillings nearly 30 years ago. American Bio Dental Center has perfected the procedure for mercury removal, safe dental revisions, detoxification, body chemistry analysis and re-balancing.
After hearing from a good number of people about the great work and prices here, Dr. Kim, my acupuncturist and I, decided to investigate. The trip from LA to Tijuana took approximately 2 1/2 hrs. It was easy freeway driving, going against traffic. We parked the car at a highly recommended family lot on the U.S. side of the border in San Ysidro, and strolled into Mexico.
