Angeles Health Opens Doors To Bone Marrow Tourists in Mexico
Bone Marrow Transplant Mexico, part of the Angeles Health group, have opened their Bone Marrow Transplant Unit to medical tourists, adding yet another outstanding facility for medical tourism in Mexico. The unit offers lifesaving bone marrow transplantation and peripheral blood stem cell transplantation to individuals with bone marrow diseases and disorders. Medical tourism Mexico is a growing market, as the Mexican Government continues to promote and improve the experience of tourists coming to sample what Mexico has to offer, from climate to culture to world class medical tourism at lower costs. Angeles health is Mexico’s largest network of hospitals. With 22 hospitals, 1,700 beds and over 11,000 specialists, the network continues to contribute to medical research and advances, opening their doors to not just Mexican Nationals and medical tourists alike. Angeles Health International’s state of the art Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, based in Hospital Angeles Lomas, was established in 2000 and, since then, has performed successful lifesaving bone marrow transplant procedures on patients with inherited or acquired bone marrow disorders. These procedures use the patients’ own stem cells or bone marrow cells (an autologous bone marrow transplant), donated bone marrow or stem cells (an allogeneic bone marrow transplant) or umbilical cord blood. Many individuals with bone marrow disorders, such as aplastic anemia, leukemia and Hodgkin’s’ disease, are unable to access the treatment that they need within the timescale they need it. This is where Medical Tourism in Mexico steps in. Bone Marrow transplant Mexico offers lower cost bone marrow transplant with the added benefit of full supported accommodation for up to 6 months after the procedure and recovery in a sunny climate. With the capacity to treat up to 5 patients a month, the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and allows access for patients at any time. This enables people who opt for medical tourism in Mexico to access lifesaving procedures without lengthy waiting times.

Dr. Ovilla says: â€œhematology is a complex and exciting specialty that enables me the opportunity to serve my patients.. I have the chance to implement medical therapy such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy and stem cell transplants to treat my patients and change their lives.â€? Bone Marrow Transplantation is just one of the exciting, cutting edge procedures that Angeles Health offers as they continue to make valuable contributions not just to medical tourism in Mexico but to the world of medicine in general.
