What is medical tourism? Why is it so popular?
Medical tourism, also known as medical travel or healthcare tourism is getting more popular. A large number of patients are striving to travel abroad for medical care – from dental work to knee surgery – to save money and to combine a visit to the doctor with a vacation. What pushes patients to seek medical treatment abroad? People go overseas for the purpose of obtaining health care for various reasons: it’s much cheaper, they face with long waiting lists at home, their home country lacks quality facilities or the medical procedures they need are not available or illegal in their own country.
The main reason for seeking health care abroad is the cost of medical procedures. In Ukraine you can save 40-70% on your treatment, even after you have paid for your travel and accommodation.
Ukrainian clinics are modern and equipped with the advanced technologies and state-of-the-art facilities.
Doctors in Ukraine are well-educated and experienced. Most of them constantly continue their professional development, training in the USA or in other countries in Europe.
Medical travelers have an opportunity to access medical services that are illegal in their home country (for instance, IVF). Apart from this, you can obtain immeadiate treatment, while your home country can face long waiting lists and waiting times in health care.
Leisure and tourism
While the main factor for medical tourists heading abroad is affordable health care, the opportunity to visit a new travel destination and enjoy great leisure activities is an additional benefit. Ukraine, the second largest country in Europe, has so much to offer. Kyiv, Lviv, Chernihiv, Kharkiv, Odessa, and more… Every city is unique.
