New Zealand is a newcomer in the medical tourism industry but not a newcomer to providing high quality treatment at a significantly lower price than the UK or US. Quality of the care received in New Zealand is equal, if not greater, to medical care in Europe or the United States. As English is also the primary spoken language in New Zealand patients should have no problem with language barriers.

Private hospitals in New Zealand are at their all time best in quality due to personalized care. A lot of private hospitals feature hotel-style rooms to cater for medical tourists and are all in accordance with national standards to make sure foreign patients receive no compromise in quality.
Patients can save more than 60% on their treatment in New Zealand which also includes consultations, the treatment itself, accommodations, nursing and aftercare. Many people travel to New Zealand to have complex surgeries, such as heart surgery, performed at a much lower cost (the US cost of heart surgery is around $60, 000 whereas New Zealand compares with $13, 000).
Many people will benefit from the links New Zealand has with the UK and US. Patients can carry out their consultation online or through an online agency with free quotes and sometimes free consultations within the package. Surgeons will also stay in contact with patients long after their treatment and even when they return home to ensure the healing process runs smoothly.
