What Is Medical Tourism?

Medical tourism could be the answer to all of the medical or surgical problems that you thought were impossible or at least impossible without breaking the bank. If you have found that there are no specialists in your area for the procedure or treatment that you need, then you’’re a candidate for medical tourism. Even if there’’s a specialist in your area, you may want to get a second opinion. We can arrange for this, so that you can rest assured that you’’re making the right decision and getting the best treatment for your medical needs.

Medical tourism combines fulfillment of medical needs with peace of mind and relaxation. Medical tourists travel away from home to receive care, and then they stay in resorts or hotels with the best care in the world for their recovery times.

Some destinations are better known for their specialists than others, making medical tourism an attractive option for many patients. For example, Mexico and Panama are leaders in stem cell treatments. Colombia and Brazil are known for their world-class cosmetic surgeons. Costa Rica and Mexico are also famous for their bariatric and dental surgeons. The United States is a good option for Canadian and European patients looking for any number of specializations.


Who Travels for Treatment? Who Are Medical Tourists?

Anyone who wants the best treatment in the world, without a high price tag or a long waiting list, can be a medical tourist. Our patients include:

  • Patients who are uninsured or underinsured for the procedure or treatment they need
  • Patients who cannot afford to wait any longer for surgery or medical treatment
  • Patients who want to make sure that they’’re getting the best care available by traveling to see a specialist for treatment and/or a second opinion

Our clients have a number of reasons for reaching out to us, but they all have one thing in common. They all want the best care possible, and they know that sometimes the best doctors and surgeons aren’’t local to them. When you come to us For your peace of mind, we work hard to match you with the right doctor, in the right location, so that you can get the treatment you need without any hassle or stress.

Medical tourists want the best for themselves and their families. They want to be able to recover from their treatments and procedures in peace and comfort. We provide that service.


What Is Included in My Trip4Care Package?

When you contact us at Trip4Care, we’’ll determine what kind of treatment you need and where you want to go. We’’ll discuss your budget, timeframe, and needs, and we’’ll match you with the doctor and location that will serve you best. Then you’’ll decide what package you want, where you want to stay, and for how long. We’’ll take care of all of the details.


Why Should I Travel to Have Procedures Performed That I Can Receive at Home?

Unfortunately, for economic and bureaucratic reasons, some of the procedures that many people want and need are too expensive or will take too long to obtain locally. Whether you’’re looking to save money on treatment, or you just can’’t wait any longer to get it done, you have options when you travel for treatment.

You may also want to consider that the doctors or surgeons in your area may not be the best in their field. Getting a second opinion is always recommended before undergoing serious treatments or procedures. If there is only one specialist in your area, it may be wise to travel for advice from another doctor or surgeon.
