At the rate by which hospital and doctors’ fees are increasing, we understand that people sometimes sacrifice much needed checkups and surgeries because of lack of funds.

Traveling for Surgery

In reporting about global medical tourism in November 2010, the World Health Organization used a study by consulting company Deloitte. The report stated that an estimated 750,000 Americans traveled outside the US for various health services in the year 2007. This number is expected to go up to 1.6 million by the end of 2012.

Many patients travel to other places where they can obtain high-quality healthcare for much lower costs. It is common to find patients traveling to get knee or hip replacement in Mexico, as they can find Mexican orthopedic surgeons who were educated or trained in the US or Canada.

Bariatric surgery in Mexico’s border cities like Tijuana, Ciudad Juarez, and Algodones are common among those wanting to lose weight. There are also plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures like liposuction, facelift, and blepharoplasty in Costa Rica. People with eyesight problems can also choose to get LASIK surgery in Mexico, and those who need knee or hip replacement surgery will find some of the best orthopedic surgeons in the Tijuana and Juarez hospitals in our network.

How to plan a Safe and Successful Medical Trip?

The common concerns of a medical tourist when deciding on a medical tourism destination are:
  • Quality and cost of healthcare services
  • The state of hospital or clinic facilities and availability of advanced medical equipment
  • International certifications of hospitals by standard bodies like JCI or ISO
  • Qualifications and experience of surgeon, especially in treating foreign patients
  • Travel-related concerns like travel time, and other expenses like airfare and hotel rates
  • English communication skills of surgeon and the medical staff
  • Over-all safety of travelers in the destination
  • Tourist attractions found within the destination and nearby areas

At Medical Trip, we know that these factors are vital to making any trip comfortable and successful, and we work with our clients to ensure that they are getting the best quality health services possible, for the lowest amount of fees we can negotiate with the hospitals.

In contrast to traveling to save money, some people travel to other destinations because they are unsatisfied with the quality of health services in their own state or city. Domestic health travel in the US can be exemplified by people getting lap band in Las Vegas. In some cases, the amount they have to pay in Las Vegas may not be too small compared to those in their home states, but the outstanding reputation of bariatric surgeons and clinics cause people from other states to visit Las Vegas for bariatric surgery.

Medical travel for higher quality of services is also common in Asia, where patients from surrounding countries prefer to travel to India, Singapore, and South Korea to get treatment in more advanced facilities. Cosmetic surgery in India is also popular among European and Australian medical tourists, because of highly-qualified surgeons that perform procedures that can cost very little compared to European and Australian prices.

Medical-Trip facilitates discount medical treatments at a number of international medical tourism destinations across the globe. The company is committed to providing complete assistance to its clients in planning a safe and satisfying medical trip.
