U.S. sees increase in medical tourism

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.
