Although Latvia suffered an economic slope in 2009, by year 2011 the economy started to recover, due to the increasing number of tourists reaching out for this destination.
Medical Tourism in Latvia
The medical services in Latvia are divided into public and private. Both provide excellent quality services, mostly due to the fact that medical professionals gained experience through exchange programs in Europe and in the USA. Latvia is one of the most affordable medical and dental treatments country, thanks to its cheap flights, friendly prices and convenient overnight stays in hotels, competing with Estonia, Germany and Finland.
Latvia provides Western European quality at Eastern European prices, offering a wide range of medical services such as: dentistry, neurosurgery, plastic surgery and orthopedics, both in public and in private hospitals. Most doctors communicate in Russian, German and French, besides the widely-spread English.
Especially on the background of an economic downturn, it is advantageous to combine the pleasant with the useful – not just to see the country with its beauties but also to see a doctor if only as a cautious measure.
