Surgery abroad is also called medical tourism, which is described as obtaining health care treatment or non-emergency surgery in a country other than your own country of residence. A growing number of Americans are having surgery abroad, mainly to save tens of thousands of dollars.
People obtain surgery abroad for a variety of reasons from cost, to avoiding long wait for non-emergency surgery, to non-covered treatment such as cosmetic surgery. But trying to figure out where to obtain surgery abroad can be overwhelming. That’s why IHT World created a medical tourism destinations directory, to help people find a desirable hospital and area to obtain surgery abroad.
“Rather than people having to go to various websites to figure out where to have surgery abroad, we’ve made a one-stop-shop at IHT World,” commented Pam Brammann, President and Managing Director of IHT World. “Visitors will find a wealth of medical tourism information, including our new addition of a medical tourism destinations directory, which will help people find a desirable place for surgery abroad.”
Mrs. Brammann also commented that domestic medical tourism, which is receiving treatment within your country, but not in your hometown is also growing, and encourages hospitals and clinics in the United States to become listed in the directory.
Hospitals, clinics, and businesses that cater to surgery abroad must be approved by IHT World before they are allowed to advertise their services. “IHT World is striving to offer quality choices,” said Mrs. Brammann. “IHT World wants to become well known for excellence.”
