Medical tourists traveling from the United States can now obtain a pass from Mexican doctors granting them access to a special lane at the US-Mexico border, according to an article written by Jude Joffe-Block and published on the Fronteras Desk website on April 30, 2012. It is no wonder that so many foreign patients are traveling to Mexican cities such as PVR (Puerto Vallarta) and GDL (Guadalajara) for minimally invasive gastric sleeve.
