Why consider Poland for medical tourism?

Medical tourism has been on the increase in Poland over the last few years, and the number of medical procedures, particularly in the area of cosmetic surgery and cosmetic dentistry has been rising dramatically. Medical tourists started to arrive in significant numbers from around 2003 and today, people from all over the world choose to have their private cosmetic surgery or dental treatment in Poland.

Poland joined the European Union in 2004 and its capital city is Warsaw, known as Warszawa. Other major cities include Krakow (or Cracow), Gdansk, Poznan, Lodz, Szczecin and Wroclaw. Clinics tend to be based in the major cities of Warsaw or Krakow. Warsaw is the business and the political centre of Poland and lies almost in the middle of the country while Krakow in the south west, is the former capital and recognised as a UNESCO Cultural World Heritage site.

English, German and Russian is spoken in most of the urban centres in Poland, and most tourist facilities have good linguistic abilities.  A number of medical tourism companies offer packages which include dentist abroad treatment and a recovery stay in resort style accommodation with recuperative facilities.

Before or after their cosmetic or dentistry treatment visitors can enjoy a tour of Warsaw’s Old Town with its Renaissance, Gothic and Baroque buildings, and enjoy any of the atmospheric cafés in Old Market Square. Poland has a changeable climate, with plenty of snow in the winter months and a hot summer. Spring begins in March and the climate can be quite pleasant during the months of April, May and June, becoming very hot in July.
