If you are interested in traveling abroad, or are a tourist always on the go for visiting new places and ready for new experiences, or if you have been after a treatment procedure or a specific surgery for a long while and have started to look for different doctors or compare prices, you probably have come across the phrase “medical tourism.” Compared to other types of tourism, medical tourism is relatively new, and has attracted people’s attention all across the globe in recent years, as it may sometimes sound too good to be true. What Is Medical Tourism? Medical tourism is a type of tourism in which you travel to another country for medical consults, procedures, and surgical or non-surgical treatments. Medical tourism is often divided into two wide branches: Therapeutic and Cosmetic. Therapeutic medical tourism mainly focuses on treatments with the purpose of curing a specific condition or illness. However, cosmetic medical tourism which is becoming more popular every day, focuses on getting different types of surgical or non-surgical procedures for aesthetical purposes. Many different agencies or private companies in different countries provide medical tourism services and often fulfill all of your needs and requirements during the time of your stay. The medical treatments are often offered in different types of packages to the patients which include the cost of the procedure, hotel and transportation and can vary in price based on the type of the procedure and the type, quality and quantity of services. Why Medical Tourism? By now, you may have asked yourself this question: “Why should I travel such a long way to receive medical treatments?” The purpose behind medical tourism is quite simple and yet not as straightforward as you might think. There are many reasons behind a decision to travel abroad for receiving a certain type of medical treatment. These reasons are discussed in below: 1. Quality: The most crucial factor to consider when receiving any type of medical treatment is the quality of the provided services. World renowned and board certified doctors are not present in every country of the world and often specialists can be employed in less developed countries offering top-notch, high quality procedures to their patients. For this reason, it might be worth the travel, finding the best and most experienced doctor with the best results in the field. 2. Affordability and Expenses: Not always the most important factor, affordability is one of the main issues to consider carefully when it comes to healthcare and receiving medical treatments. Most surgeries or treatments can cost thousands of dollars in first world countries, and especially for cosmetic procedures, the cost is not always worth the result. That is when medical tourism comes to aid, as agencies around the world can offer the same procedure half the price or even less, due to currency differences. 3. Availability: The specific medical procedure you are seeking for might not always be available in your country, or the specialist needed for consultation is not always present. For instance, many complex, difficult and new types of surgeries and procedures are not yet available in many countries worldwide. Why Choose Iran for Medical Tourism?
