This year's Medical Tourism Congress (Oct. 26 - 28 in Los Angeles) features Costa Rica in its portrait of the growing trend of going overseas for affordable care.
In the video, we see Bob (his last name is not provided) from Orlando, Florida as he flies to San Jose, Costa Rica, to have a double knee replacement at Clinica Biblica, one of the top rated facilities in a country known for its high-quality care. Bob consults with English-speaking doctors, jokes that this is the first time the doctor was waiting for him, and sings the praises of Costa Rican medical care. He even fits in a visit to the rainforest aerial tram at Braulio Carillo National Park.
