Due its culture and reputation as a holiday destination, Spain attracts tens of thousands of British visitors each year. Spain has, however, become a popular destination for medical tourism. Patients travel to Spain for its high quality yet reasonably low cost medical treatments in some of the most advanced medical facilities in Europe.
Popular Treatments in Spain
- Cosmetic surgery
- Orthopaedic surgery
- Obesity surgery
- Eyesight Surgery
- Elective surgery
One of the many reasons medical tourism is becoming so popular is the availability of a holiday while receiving treatment, which is no exception with Spain. Most patients can be found recuperating around relaxing beaches in the sun, all at a low price compared to the UK. Patients can save anything from 30 – 70% with medical procedures in Spain.
Longer waiting lists and rising costs in the UK have led to most patients seeking alternative sources like Spain. With the majority of their facilities housing the most up to date technology, well-trained surgeons, excellent aftercare and professional treatments more and more people are travelling each year for their treatments.
As always patients may want to consider carefully when going abroad for treatment and should query their surgeon about all their needs and worries.
