Turkey’s highly respected reputation has made this country a leading medical tourism destination in Europe and the Middle East, offering modern and progressive healthcare practices, new clinics and hospitals, highly trained medical professionals and attractive prices. For example medical procedures for which you would pay tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in the Unites States, will cost you only several thousands in Turkey. Medical Tourism in Turkey has quickly expanded, and could be characterized by two words: quality and professionalism.
In 2012, from the total of 37 million tourists visiting Turkey, almost 270,000 came here for surgical procedures, varying from liposuction and hair implants to serious ailments. People from all over the world are attracted by the cheap and reliable medical care, by new facilities and the Western-trained medics.
Turkey offers various types of medical tourism, including liposuction, lasik eye surgery, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, gender reassignment surgery, orthodontics, kidney dialysis, brain surgery, orthopedic joint replacements, cardiovascular surgery, organ transplants, stem cell implantation, fertility treatments and many others.
