The Vallarta Medical Center Hospital hosted a team of doctors from Mexico City, Canada and the United States to relieve pain and suffering in two hundred people living in Puerto Vallarta, at no cost to patients.

Pain in the back, shoulders, neck, limbs, wherever it was, the international brigade of doctors went to work to end the pain caused by different affectations.

Hundreds of people were relieved from their suffering with the medical techniques provided by the team, which discards surgeries as long as possible and relieves different origins of pain. The team has also done this work in the tourist destination of Cancun.



“We do not treat with medication, but to the injury directly, we use very advanced techniques and we have ultrasound equipment, the moment the lesion is detected the treatment is applied, it is a hundred percent regenerative. With this treatment we are stimulating the immune system to send that signal of regeneration, repair to where it is most needed, and most importantly it is a humanitarian brigade, completely free treatments accessible to the people that require it,” said Dr. Edgar Plantilla.

Tom Clark, the doctor who led the project has been doing altruistic work for several decades, and in this case spent two days in Puerto Vallarta where they alleviated pain problems in a couple of hundred people, it is fair to say, at no cost.
