Why consider Hungary for medical tourism?

Hungary has for a long time been a popular destination for the Germans and Austrians, once they cottoned on to the fact that it was much cheaper to have their surgery in Hungary than at home.  Consequently over the past fifteen years or so the market has expanded and an increasing number of surgeons have emerged giving greater access to top class, affordable cosmetic and plastic surgery, general surgery, dental surgery and other treatments.

Until fairly recently however, Hungary hasn’t been a particularly popular option for medical tourists from outside mainland Europe.  With the increased mobility offered by world travel, with cheaper deals by international airlines, this has all changed and Hungary is now a much better prospect. Just as well, because Hungary offers a range of excellent healthcare which visitors can take advantage of at a lower price than in their own countries. A face and neck lift in Hungary still costs around €2,000* (excluding flights etc). It’s also true that many of the dental and cosmetic surgeries run medical tourism programs, organising the entire trip from flights, transfer, accommodation and surgical or dental treatment. This may not be available for medical tourists from all international destinations – but it is always worth making an enquiry at your chosen clinic.

Hungary is renowned all over the world for its high standards and advanced medical procedures, with many of their medical profession teaching and practicing internationally.  The country has some of the lowest MRSA rates in Europe, and provides access to high class and affordable elective, cosmetic and plastic surgery and to cosmetic and therapeutic dentistry. Procedures are carried out in Budapest clinics with modern up-to-date facilities and run by internationally trained, English speaking doctors and surgeons. With the high level of professionalism and the premium service available you can effortlessly combine your treatment with a relaxing break. The city of Budapest is a particularly relaxing place to recover from surgery with the many rejuvenating thermal spas.
