Medical tourism in Turkey - an opportunity to gain health and not go broke

Serious medicine - where and what to treat abroad

Medical tours abroad should in no way be confused with simple medical and health trips, although they may include rest in sanatoriums or resort centers as one of the elements. The term "medical tour" implies serious, full-fledged treatment abroad, often including surgical intervention. Of course, such trips are organized not by ordinary "mass" tour operators, but by special companies, which in their profile and staff are much closer to medicine than to tourism.

Medical tourists are patients of all ages who, for whatever reason, do not have the opportunity (or desire) to be treated in their homeland, and treatment abroad is the best choice for them. We will not analyze these reasons now (not about that article), but rather note that in addition to medical tourism itself - trips for specific types of treatment, there is also diagnostic tourism - travel for the purpose of examination and clarification of the diagnosis.

Despite the fact that medical tourism as an industry has appeared relatively recently, thousands of patients have already used its services. And there are many reasons for this growth. World-renowned specialists, medical centers, the technical equipment of which allows for accurate diagnostics to determine the further course of treatment, a high level of service, comfortable wards and caring medical personnel. all these are the advantages of foreign medicine.
