Country profile

Why choose Latvia for treatment?

Latvia is an attractive destination for the medical tourist as treatments and consultations are available at very competitive prices. For example, a hip or knee operation in a Latvian centre will cost around half the price of other European private clinics, particularly those in Germany and the UK.

Private hospitals have modern medical equipment and experienced doctors/surgeons often further their studies on exchange programmes in countries such as Sweden, Berlin, the UK or the US, and speak several languages. Patients requiring knee, hip or shoulder surgery and all types of orthopaedic operations are treated at the Latvian Hospital of Orthopaedic and Traumatology, one of the largest orthopaedic hospitals in Eastern Europe (in Riga) and along with very good value for money, highly professional surgeons with a very good attitude and quality of care, MRSA regulations are compliant with European regulations.
