Why consider Turkey for medical tourism?

Turkey is a country with a captivating culture and history, warm friendly people and a pleasant climate with refreshing breezes from the Aegean.

Turkey’s private hospitals and clinics offer an affordable solution in a vacation-like environment.  This, in itself induces a more positive result as medical tourists immediately feel more relaxed about the treatment they are undertaking.

Clinics/hospitals are typically located in the country’s capital, Istanbul, the city where east meets west and Izmir the third largest city in Turkey on the Aegean coast, conveniently located for accommodation, shopping and sightseeing.  Guests staying in Izmir, for example, can enjoy a few days relaxing on Çesme or Kusadasi beaches before/after treatment or take in some of the remains of ancient civilisations with a trip to Ephesus or the classical City of Pergamum.  In Istanbul they can soak up the atmosphere in the old city are where churches, mosques, palaces, museums and bazaars abound.

Cosmetic surgery is popular in Turkey and surgeons work in technologically advanced operating theatres. A rhinoplasty (nose re-shaping) in Turkey would cost €2000* while a facelift can be arranged from €3250*. (*Prices supplied by Ota & Jinemed Hospital, Istanbul)
