WHY CHOOSE TURKEY

One of the top 17 popular countries for medical tourism today is Turkey. In 2018, 700,000 foreigners visited Turkey just to take advantage of their excellent medical treatment and care services. Overall, 32 per cent of the country’s patients are medical tourists!

Some of the reasons behind Turkey’s popularity are the following:

  • The country has an affordable healthcare system

  • It has the highest number of US-accredited hospitals

  • Most doctors, having trained in Europe and America, choose to practice and take up their residency in Turkey

If these aren’t enough reasons for you to consider Turkey for your medical tourism, here are some advantages you should consider:

Surgeries are cheaper in Turkey

In general, surgeries in Turkey can be up to 90 per cent cheaper, and 67 per cent of those who travel abroad take advantage of this for their private hospital treatment. That speaks a lot about how affordable their medical offers are. Cosmetic surgery in Turkey is also 70 per cent cheaper than most of Europe. You get to save more without sacrificing the quality of the treatments you’re looking for.

Moreover, Turkish Airlines also offer a special discount for medical travellers. If you calculate the total expense of your surgery, your travel fee, and accommodation, the cost would still be cheaper compared to getting the same surgery in most western countries so why not have a holiday at the same time!

Quality hospitals and surgeons

The beauty of the medical industry in Turkey is how the country’s government helps develop and upgrade its health sector, keeping it at the very top of the industry. The government follows a PPP model (private-public-partnership) to improve the country’s healthcare infrastructure, and the private hospitals also invest in improving their health facilities. As mentioned earlier, in addition to investment, internationally trained surgeons decide to stay and perform their profession in Turkey ensuring the level of care is always the best it can be.

Well-rounded when it comes to treatment offerings

While some countries are popular for certain types of treatment, Turkey is different. People around the world travel to Turkey for various reasons, such as hair transplants, cancer treatments, dental treatments, low-cost in-vitro fertilisation (IVF), and more. They are also popular when it comes to smoking and mental health therapy.
