Oscar Mendoza Helguera MD Verified

Oscar Mendoza orthopedic clinic is one of most established physiotherapy treatment facilities in Guadalajara providing high standards of medical care and advanced technology which earned renowned acclaim in Mexico and North America.

I did a lot of research before coming to Mexico for such a major surgery. When I found Dr. Mendoza and read about his experience around the world with minimally invasive hip replacement, I felt fairly sure he was the surgeon I wanted for my procedure. I then made contact with his assistant, and from that point forward, I knew I had made the right decision. She and Dr. Mendoza are warm and friendly, as well as professional and quick to respond. After viewing my x-rays, Dr. Mendoza told me things about my hip, and why I had developed my problem, things my American doctors had never bothered to explain. My American doctors always treated me as if they didn't want to be bothered and were trying to get rid of me as soon as possible. My first visit with Dr. Mendoza lasted 45 minutes, and he treated me as if he had all day to spend, answering any questions I had. My hospital room was a beautiful suite, where my husband had a nice leather couch to sleep on. The nursing staff was very knowledgeable and prompt to respond if I needed anything. After leaving the hospital, I had a lot of pain on my first night, and Dr. Mendoza called my husband and prescribed a heavier medication. It says on his letterhead in Spanish "house calls"! I can't say enough good about my experience with Dr. Oscar Mendoza and his staff. Thank you, Dr. Mendoza!

We were recommended to Dr. Mendoza by Dr. Torres in Mazatlan as a highly skilled and meticulous surgeon. I had waited in pain for close to 3years in Canada for treatment ; The surgery was completed 2 days after arriving in Guadalajara. The surgery was perfect and there were no significant pain levels. The follow up after surgery items ei. walker, ambulance trip back to our hotel, and daily visit by the physiotherapist were all organized by Dr. Mendoza's professional staff. This is medical care at its best and incredible value for the price. I see a golf course in my future.

Orthopedic Surgery Mexico

If you are in need of routine orthopedic surgery that you are partially or fully responsible for financially, consider these key points: Medical tourists in Mexico regularly report that their medical experience in Mexico was just as good as in the US; Many report a less rushed, more personalized care, rather than the conveyor-belt treatment often experienced at US hospitals.

Even those with partial insurance coverage can benefit by getting their orthopedic surgery in Mexico, since many American insurance companies will process claims for procedures done at Mexican hospitals. A patient required to pay even a small percentage of an operation that is tens of thousands of dollars in the US, can find the coverage applies equally to getting the surgery done south of the border.

The amount the patient is responsible for paying turns out to be much less because of the lower overall cost of the surgery.
