Medical tourism is a growing phenomenon as more and more people cannot afford medical treatment at home. Many procedures that people want to #LookGood and #FeelGood are not covered by social insurance schemes such as:
- Cosmetic dentistry: dental implants, crowns, sinus lift,
- Cosmetic surgery: tummy tuck, liposuction, breast augmentation, hair transplant
And even if some medical procedures are covered by the national health system the waiting times are months and sometimes years.
- Medical diagnosis: MRI scans, PET/CT scans
- Orthopedic surgery: hip replacement, TKR, Total Knee Replacement, hip revision for metal-on-metal implants that are defective
Enjoying the benefits medical tourism and travelling a couple of hours to a low-cost destination for high-quality treatment with no waiting time is now common practice in Europe.
