South Korean hospitals are modern, well-equipped and they rival many of the best hospitals in the West. As a medical tourism destination, South Korea is underrated and under-estimated by its competitors.

Coupled with relatively low prices, Korea's highly advanced healthcare technology and procedures are gaining in popularity. For instance, health screenings in Korea may cost as little as 20% of the equivalent price in Europe and the USA.
