Although there are many benefits associated with medical tourism, there are also certain risks that must be weighed before making a final decision to travel abroad.
Varying standards and Medical Tourism
Varying standards with regards to hospitals and physicians can be a problem if you are searching for options within multiple countries with dozens of hospitals. Each country will have its own licensing and certification protocols which may vary significantly from your own country. As you have no way of actually visiting the hospital or meeting the physician prior to your trip, you will have to do research to make sure hospitals are accredited and surgeons are licensed. MedicalTourism.com offers a wealth of information and tools that will make this job much easier.
Travel after surgery
Traveling long distances after surgery also poses certain risks such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism. DVT may be defined as a blood clot that forms in a vein deep in the body. If the blood clot breaks off and travels through the bloodstream to the lungs, a pulmonary embolism may occur which is potentially fatal. Using simple preventive measures, however, medical tourism patients can reduce the chance of blood clotting and increase their likelihood of surgical success.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends:
Medical Tourism is the globalization phenomenon where people who live in one country travel to another country to receive medical, dental, and/or surgical care.
Medical travelers often engage in medical tourism to save money, but this does not mean they are sacrificing quality for savings. Medical tourists typically receive equal or greater care than they would have in their own country, and are traveling for medical care because of affordability, or better access to a higher or more specialized quality of care. “Domestic Medical Tourism” is a subsection of medical tourism where patients do not leave their country, but travel to another city, region, or state to receive medical care.
Medical/Health Tourism safety is linked to the following: your chosen destination, its healthcare system, the professionals who will be treating you and your insurance policies.
Obviously, a destination with social conflicts or troubles would not be an ideal destination for safety. It is always advisable to find out about a country’s current situation before considering it as your chosen destination. Hygienic and sanitary aspects should also be taken into account. Hospitals may be modern and their medical staff well qualified, however, there are certain places in the world that have high endemic disease rates. Therefore, you should always be aware of exactly where you are travelling to. Moreover, you should always consult your doctor before going abroad, especially when you are travelling to another continent, in case you need to take any preventative measures.
