More from this show

Recently, four people were kidnapped in Mexico, while one was allegedly there for cosmetic surgery. This is part of the growing trend of medical tourism.

A growing number of people are traveling internationally to seek medical care, sometimes to save money, sometimes because a procedure is not approved. Medical tourism can be dangerous.

Today, Dr. Frank LoVecchio, Medical Dir Clinical Research at the ASU College of Health Solutions, joins Arizona Horizon to take a look at whether the risks outweigh the benefits.
