Country profile

Why consider Slovenia?

Slovenia provides the ideal environment for medical tourism, with warm, Mediterranean summers, friendly, welcoming people and stunning countryside. It’s the perfect place to take the stress away from your surgery and leave you feeling refreshed and revitalized.

The country is readily accessible from elsewhere in Europe or from international locations. Once there, you’ll find it easy to get around, with hundreds of miles of brand new highways built over the last decade and an excellent rail network.

While Slovenia is certainly a country on the up, its development is being carefully planned, with a green agenda dedicated to preserving the incredible beauty and natural diversity of the landscape. The Slovenian landscape, from Alpine mountains to ancient forests, has much to offer its visitors and they are determined to keep it that way. If you can take the time, before or after your treatment to explore a little of this extraordinary country, and you will find yourself enriched by the fine food and wine, breathtaking views and hospitable people of this young, yet ancient land.

You’ll also find your finances enriched too, with significant savings on treatments compared to other European and US centres. The Slovenian Association of Medical Tourism works on the simple principle of maintaining high levels of service at competitive prices. This has succeeded in steadily building their reputation across Europe over the last few years. And it’s a strategy that works, with around 33,000 people visiting Slovenia for treatment each year, spending an average of 1,100 Euros. Orthopaedic surgery is a popular option with knee and hip replacements readily available and people also come here for all types of cosmetic surgery and cosmetic dentistry.

One medical tourist requiring a full mouth restoration from a cosmetic dentist, saved over €10,000 compared to the cost of private treatment in his own country, and most patients save up to 60% of their treatment costs. Combine this with simple, affordable travel, stunning locations, modern infrastructure, friendly people and a culture of wellness, and Slovenia is sure to score highly whatever treatment you are considering.
