Greece is a newcomer in the medical tourism market which is often associated with Asian and Central American countries that combine modern medicine with low costs.
However, as the birthplace of modern medicine, Greece is proud to have some of the best professionals in the healthcare system. Greek physicians practice with as much care and professionalism as other more well established destinations. Also, the majority of the Greek physicians have been trained at schools located in the U.S.A, the United Kingdom, and Germany and combined with modern private hospitals and state of the art equipment, Greece is a force to be reckoned with in the medical tourism scene.
Most people who arrive to Greece for medical care are going for high-quality cosmetic/plastic surgery, advanced dental procedures, and Greek physicians’ expertise in fertility treatments like in vitro fertilization (IVF), which is particularly popular because of its high rate of success, affordable prices, and the outstanding follow-up care provided by the country’s modern treatment centers.
Greece is also gaining a reputation for being a reliable medical tourism destination because of:
- its top-notch private hospitals;
- its diversity of medical specialties;
- its physicians reputation;
- the rapid provision of personalized treatment due to one of the world’s highest doctor-to-patient ratios;
- its accessibility, seeing that entry to Greece is relatively easy (visa-free for citizens from European Union countries, the USA, Canada, Japan, and Australia).
As with most leading medical tourism destinations, Greece not only delivers high-quality care, but it’s an unbelievable leisure destination; and the Greeks’ welcoming culture, warm climate, endless beautiful beaches, safety and overall healthy lifestyle make it an ideal location for recovering from your treatment.
