Why Is Turkey Cheap For Surgery?


Health tourism is among the fastest growing sectors in Turkey and it is estimated that it will bring about 4 billion dollars to the country's economy every year.
The popularity among medical tourists is due to the affordability and accessibility of a wide variety of procedures. Also, an important reason is a shorter waiting time. In other countries, such as the UK, patients can wait up to a year and a half for a knee replacement due to the National Health Service overload.
Turkey offers excellent medical care and cosmetic treatments or procedures at a lower cost than most other countries in Europe or the USA. However, some of the various reasons behind Turkey's low prices for all types of plastic surgery are the low cost of living, taxes, exchange rate and the advantages that the Turkish Government provides to health tourism. This affects pricing, allowing Turkish clinics to offer reliable procedures at inexpensive prices.
Traveling to Turkey for plastic surgery can save you money. There are great professional surgeons in Turkey, and to control the standards of hospitals in July 2018, the Turkish Parliament passed a bill establishing International Health Services, which aims to regulate and improve the healthcare industry and labor standards. However, to ensure your safety, you should still do your research before making the final decision. During the review you should work with national accreditation companies and hospitals.
