Recently, Argentina has followed its neighbouring countries and appraises itself as one of the leading destinations for medical tourists. Argentina has now developed itself with massive resources, top of the range procedures and a willingness to please all foreign patients who venture to Argentina for their treatment. Most Northern American and Canadian patients travel to Argentina due to its quality medical care and close proximity.
Argentina’s most popular procedure is cosmetic surgery, performed by qualified professionals in hundreds of clinics across the country with close communication links to patient’s home countries.
Most private clinics in Argentina are located in or around the capital or larger cities, with a distinct European flavour so patients can enjoy a small holiday while receiving treatment. Argentina offers:
- Dental treatments
- Cosmetic Surgery
- Hair transplants
- Infertility treatment
- Gastric bypass surgery
- Reconstructive surgery
Due to current exchange rates most patients can find that their treatment in Argentina can be up to a third of the amount they would pay in their own country. Private clinics have low costs, higher than standard care and no waiting lines for its patients.
Patients will have to consider the flight time to Argentina (13 hours) and must be aware that any occurring complications may not be dealt with in the UK. Patients considering treatment in Argentina should always address any concerns to their surgeon before undergoing any type of procedure.
