Patients Flocking Turkey for Low Cost Medical Treatment

(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 12, 2009 ) New Delhi, India – According to our new research report titled Emerging Medical Tourism in Turkey, the medical tourism market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of over 50% between 2009 and 2013 on the back of low cost of treatment and improved healthcare infrastructure.

Turkey is gaining the reputation of providing excellent medical and healthcare services in many fields, including cosmetic and plastic surgery, cardiac procedures, vision, orthopedics, dentistry and many more.

A Senior Research Analyst at RNCOS says that one of the major driving forces for the Turkish medical tourism industry is the country’s improved healthcare infrastructure. Turkey is continuously improving its healthcare infrastructure as various hospitals are being developed by the government. In fact, the country has the highest number of Joint Commission International (JCI) accredited hospitals in the world, making it one of the most promising medical tourism markets worldwide.

Low cost of treatment is also driving the medical tourism industry in Turkey. Medical costs for procedures and surgeries in Turkey offer international medical travelers’ huge savings that generally amount to as much as 50%-75% of costs for the same surgeries and procedures in the US and other developed countries of Europe. To further boost the number of medical tourists in the country, Turkish Airlines have recently announced 25% discount on listed fares for a medical patient and companion in possession of a note from a doctor or an acceptance letter to a Turkish medical facility.
