Stem Cell Therapy in Tijuana Mexico

Tijuana is located right across the border to San Diego, California, making it one of the most transited border crossings in the world. Located within the state of Baja California, this makes places like Tijuana, Mexicali and Los Algodones, ideal spots for medical tourists from the US looking for world-class stem cell therapy

Stem Cell Clinic Tijuana

Tijuana is also known to be one of the locations in Mexico with stem cell clinics. A useful advice is the importance of inquiring about licenses and laboratories within their own facilities. Most stem cell clinics in Mexico do not have official COFEPRIS (Mexican equivalent of the FDA) licenses and laboratories in their own facilities, because they tend to purchase stem cell vials from external providers and just infiltrate them to patients. 

The cost of stem cell therapy in Tijuana usually ranges between $4,500 USD and $28,000 USD, depending on the condition to be treated, the amount of stem cells to be used and the type of infiltrations required. Please verify that a licensed doctor provides the treatment plan, because some commercially oriented clinics mainly provide information to interested patients via sales staff, without the support of a medical director. 

In a study conducted during 2021 (1), it was found that out of the 110 stem cell clinics in Tijuana that offer their services, just 13 clinics claimed licensing and only 1 was able to be verified:

"Our structured online searches resulted in 110 unique websites located in Tijuana corresponding to 76 confirmed locations. These clinics’ online presence consisted of direct-to-consumer advertising mainly through a dedicated website (94.5%) or Facebook page (65.5%). The vast majority of these websites (99.1%) did not mention any affiliation to an academic institutions or other overt tokens of scientific legitimacy. Most clinics claimed autologous tissue was the source of treatments (67.3%) and generally did not specify route of administration. Additionally, of the Tijuana clinics identified, 13 claimed licensing, though only 1 matched with available licensing information." - Chavez, J., Shah, N.A., Ruoss, S.
