Costa Rica and Guatemala are recognized as leading destinations for affordable maxillofacial and orthognathic surgery. American patients often discover that quality maxillofacial and orthognathic surgery is cost-prohibitive in the USA. For the past two decades, many of these patients have discovered affordable dental surgery solutions from talented oral and maxillofacial surgeons in Costa Rica and Guatemala at a fraction of the price charged by oral surgeons in the USA and Canada.
One such patient, Alexandra was quoted more than $50,000 for a complex TMJ surgery in New York. She received that same surgery in Costa Rica for less than $22,000.
“I would never have imagined that it was possible to go to another country for surgery. Yet, here I am, six months later, after surgery in Costa Rica with a new outlook on life and the confidence I never thought I would have again. I suffered from massive headaches, jaw pain and a constant popping of my jaws when I spoke or ate. It’s all gone now.”
