Medical Travel: Fad or Wave of the Future?

A mere decade ago, medical tourism was not taken very seriously. Much the same way as online schooling or dating, the thought of traveling across borders for medical care was scoffed at. Today, online schools provide accredited educations for millions of students, and online dating has become a norm. No longer is medical tourism thought to be only for people desperate for cheap medical procedures.

Today, medical tourism is the booming and growing industry. Individuals seeking cosmetic dental treatment, plastic surgery specialists, treatment for cancer, custom Lasik eye surgery, fertility treatment abroad, bariatric surgery centers, cardiac bypass surgery, or orthopedic surgeons may find excellent, highly trained, and world-class surgeons, procedures, and facilities around the world.

Medical tourism is not a joke. It has turned into a multibillion dollar industry that continues to grow. Medical destinations are not limited to Mexico or Southeast Asia, but may be found today throughout Switzerland, South Africa, and the Middle East, from Croatia to Guatemala to South Korea.

Treatments for stem cell based therapy, chronic disease treatment, joint replacement surgeries, professional skin care, and plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries are available in facilities that are JCI (Joint Commissions International) accredited or certified by international accreditation organizations.

Facilities such as the Florence Nightingale Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey, or the Jordan Hospital, in Amman, Jordan are just two of such facilities. Facilities and organizations such as the Wooridul Spine Hospital in Seoul, South Korea to Surgical Bliss in Cape Town, South Africa offer medical travelers today state of the art technologies, highly trained physicians and surgeons as well as world-class facilities for a variety of medical care options that also offers affordability and convenience for medical patients.
