Why consider Belgium for medical tourism?

Offering some of the best medical treatment in the West, an excellent reputation in its hospitals and clinics and with many of its doctors fluent in English Belgium is a top choice for surgery abroad.

The high level of surgical expertise evolves from many years of training - all doctors are trained for a minimum of seven years and specialists for 12 years and the high quality health care system is renowned world-over. For example Belgium was top of the list for best heart treatment in Europe according to a European Heart Journal analysis of 24 European countries.

Belgium has a large number of private hospitals and the independent status of its hospitals means that revenues and profit are ploughed back into new equipment and technology. In a recent study by The World Markets Research Centre (a leading provider of independent business and industry intelligence) Belgium ranked top for medical purposes out of 175 countries, not least because secondary infection rates average less than 1%, lower than many other countries in Europe. Hygiene and post operative care are first rate and international statistics show cases of MRSA in Belgium are among the lowest in the world.
