Dallas Medical Tourism

Traveling for Medical Treatment

The twenty-first century has been one of change and advancement. In design, architecture and education, our society has come a long way in the past 20 years. Clearly, the advancements most beneficial to human health and longevity have been made in the medical field. With growing access to specialized clinics across the country, many people choose to travel for medical care.

Quality of life is the largest indicator of good health, and that extends beyond physical well being. Happiness is an important factor in one’s quality of life, and Dallas is a city where you can enjoy yourself by treating both the body and the mind.

Choosing Dallas for Medical Treatment

Dallas medical tourism is on the rise as of late. The city has always been a tourism hotspot, but with the expansion of the medical district in Northwest Dallas, it has seen an influx of visitors. People visit for treatment, and then make a vacation of it at the many restaurants, shopping districts and museums in the city.

Great BBQ in Dallas

North of Downtown Dallas, near the Galleria Mall, a small BBQ restaurant nestles in a commercial office park called Cattleack BBQ. The shop is only open Thursday and Friday from 10:30 AM until 2:00 PM. If you don’t show up by 11:00 AM, you may find yourself waiting in a line that runs out the front door. If that happens, don’t worry—it’s worth the wait. With brisket so tender you can cut it with a spoon and ribs prepared with Cattleack’s secret rub, you’ll need to be careful to not overeat.

Dallas History at the JFK Museum

On Elm Street in downtown Dallas, you’ll find what used to be the School Book Depository where Lee Harvey Oswald lay in ambush for John F. Kennedy’s presidential limousine. Now the building houses the 6th Floor Museum, which commemorates the JFK assassination. You can walk through the expansive floor and view displays that cover JFK’s rise in politics and his policies while president. Keep walking, and you will reach the window where Oswald waited in hiding behind a stack of boxes for his opportunity to change history. The museum displays JFK memorabilia and offers short films on related subjects. Serious history buffs can take a stroll down to Elm Street itself and stand on the exact spot where JFK was shot. A white “X” marks the spot on the road.

Cell Therapy for Lung Disease in Dallas

In March of 2016, the Lung Institute opens its Dallas Clinic to serve patients across the region. This alternative treatment uses cells from the patients’ own body and may improve the quality of life for lung disease sufferers. In a region already well-known for medical advancements, the Dallas clinic will forward the Lung Institute’s goal of helping lung suffers across the country.

    Hello Claus,
    That shouldn’t be a problem. Our Dallas clinic will be opening in the early part of 2016. If you schedule any follow-up appointments, just let them know and they can set you up. But I would recommend you drive the speed limit no matter where you go. State troopers don’t follow autobahn rules. – Matt

    I am scheduled to have the stem cell treatment at Nashville facility. In case I have to get any follow up treatment can I get that an the future Dallas facility? I live only 2.5 hours away from Dallas, but it takes 14 hours driving to get to Nashville – maybe less if I drive my “German style” lol
