What is medical tourism?
Medical tourism is simply the process of traveling abroad to a specific destination to obtain certain medical procedures. Medical tourism is certainly not a new concept. Canadians and Europeans have been traveling outside their regions for years to obtain medical procedures due the long waiting periods associated with socialized medicine. The global elite have been traveling to the US for years as well to our world renowned hospitals, such as Johns Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic and MD Anderson. Now US citizens have an excellent opportunity to seek top quality procedures outside the US, where they can recover in anonymity and luxury at more affordable rates.
Who are medical tourists?
Medical tourists are generally residents of the industrialized nations of the world and primarily originate from The United States, Canada, Great Britain, Western Europe, Australia, and The Middle East. But more and more, people from many other countries of the world are seeking out places where they can obtain their medical care at an affordable cost.
What kind of healthcare do medical tourists obtain?
A myriad of options exist for medical tourists - from purely elective procedures such as face lifts, liposuction, tummy tucks, breast augmentation, dental crowns, and LASIK, to more serious procedures such as joint replacements, spinal disc replacements, hysterectomies, and cardiac bypass surgery - medical tourists can now obtain many types of medical or surgical procedure abroad in a safe and effective manner for a fraction of the cost that they would face in their home countries.
What services are included?
There are a host of services incorporated in our medical travel program. We will walk you through the entire process. You need not be aware of anything about the medical tourism process other than your wish to receive a medical procedure.
Why should I consider medical or surgical procedures outside my Country?
The cost of the medical procedures in the iran that we participate is generally 50 to 80 percent less expensive than the same procedures in the countries . This cost differential enables you the opportunity to have a vacation in an exotic country, recover in a 4 to 5 star resort in complete anonymity, and then return home having spent less than the procedure alone in the your country .
How can I trust the quality of the iranian doctors?
To begin with, one of our key service offerings to you is to provide all the information to you about the doctors in order for you to make the most educated decision possible. We will provide you with resumes and facilitate phone conversations or even video conferences. If you are still not comfortable, we will work to provide you with the information about the doctors that is important to you.
Why should I work with a medical tourism agency?
You don’t have to work with a medical tourism service agency. You can contact an overseas hospital directly, schedule your appointments, and book all your arrangements on your own. Many people have done this. However, if you work with a reputable service agency, they have taken care of all the guesswork for you. They have personally inspected all of their affiliate hospitals, met the doctors, and have established strong relationships with their affiliates. They will have a direct connection to all the administrators of your hospital. Equally important, they will have many past clients that have had your procedure, whom they can refer you to speak about their experience with the destination, the doctor, the hospital, and even the hotel. Pages could be written about the value of working with a service agency, versus attempting to manage the process on your own.
Are the hospitals safe?
We will do all that we can to insure that you are comfortable with the hospitals that you review. A large part of our value to you is that we have visited these facilities personally and can attest to their standards of hygiene, modernity and use of technology. We will also be your advocates to assist in obtaining necessary statistics for your chosen facility. Additionally, even though the hospitals in our network have accreditation from iran government and non-government entities, we will continue to work with the executive management teams of the iran hospitals in our network to seek accreditation from the Joint Commission International.
