Why health tourism in turkey?
Turkey is a leading player in the medical tourism/healthcare facilitation industry. It is increasingly emerging as the destination of choice for a wide range of medical procedures.
Turkey’s advantage in medical tourism is the high number of accredited hospitals in ophthalmic surgery, bariatric and metabolic surgery, plastic surgery, transplantation and oncologic treatments as well as its affordable prices, high-quality services, and is a leading touristic destination with several historical, cultural and natural attractions.
Health tourism has become a booming sector in Turkey. Many people come to Turkey due to the low cost, high quality, short waiting periods and high standard facilities with ultimate patient satisfaction in the healthcare industry. In 2018, Turkey hosted over 550,000 visitors for medical tourism and 46 million overall tourists visited the country.
Turkey provides better quality treatment at lower costs as compared to Europe, the U.S. and other western countries, upto 90% cheaper prices than other countries. However, the infrastructure and healthcare facilities offer world-class standards. Also, Turkey combines the best of healthcare with an exceptional holiday.
For example, the cost of angiography is $47,000 in the U.S., $13,000 in Singapore, $11,000 in India and $10,000 in Thailand, while it is only $5,000 in Turkey. Similarly, the cardiac valve surgery is $150,000 in the U.S. and $17,000 in Turkey. Furthermore, procedure waiting time was a maximum of two weeks excluding transplantation, but this process could reach upto 18 months in western countries.
Turkey was ranked third in medical tourism by the International Medical Travel Journal (IMTJ). The U.S. was the first and South Korea the second in the list, while Thailand was the fourth and Germany the fifth. On top of its impressive accreditation credentials, some hospitals have partnerships with top American hospitals such as Harvard Medical Center and Johns Hopkins and are staffed with many highly skilled, English speaking, and western trained doctors. Also, many hospitals offer 5-star accommodation for patients and their families.
