Boomers are Traveling for Health Care

Arthritis, osteoarthritis, mild forms of dementia, and heart problems prompt many otherwise healthy seniors to seek medical treatments that will improve quality of life. Concerns regarding treatment of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or dementia are also high on the list of medical conditions that seniors worry about. So is the growing need for therapies and joint replacement surgeries. Unfortunately, such care is growing increasingly expensive and many boomers wonder if they will be forced to suffer in silence.

The World Medical Tourism and Global Health Congress estimates that in the coming years , the U.S. will see nearly 17,000,000 Americans venturing beyond domestic borders for medical and healthcare in India, Thailand, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, Croatia, and dozens of other international destinations with growing reputations for providing some of the best medical and surgical care in the world.

Statistics define that nearly 60% of today’s bankruptcies are caused by staggering medical expenses as a result of emergency surgeries, diagnosis of chronic illnesses, treatment of cardiac and bone diseases and processes as well as treatment for dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

Increasing needs for medical care, the rising cost of that care and the outrageous price tag of prescription medications has many seniors these days choosing between paying their rent and paying for their medications.

PlacidWay, an international medical provider, is concerned about the growing needs of boomers seeking quality and affordable medical care and surgical services. That’s why PlacidWay has expanded markets well into Mexico and South America and Asia and Central Europe in facilities like the Wooridul Spine Hospital in Seoul, South Korea to Terme Selce in Croatia and offers qualified, highly trained and experienced providers such as fertility expert Dr. Demian Glujovsky of CEGYR in Argentina to CCPR, the Center of Plastic Surgery & Rehabilitation in Rio de Janeiro.
