Taking charge of one's health: The ever growing appeal of medical travel

More people are finding out the large difference in the costs of surgical procedures offered by healthcare institutions within and outside the US. As the costs of medical care have grown significantly over the past few years, many individuals who need operations and therapy for their condition have thought out of the box and have gone with treatment overseas.

Medical travel has become increasingly popular with people who are either dissatisfied with the healthcare delivery in the country or simply cannot afford to get the treatment for their condition because of the high costs.

However, many people have expressed their doubts on going to other countries for their treatment.

Steven Lash, president and CEO of Satori World Medical, highlights the importance of the spread of information about medical travel options amid the rising costs of health care so that patients do not choose to forgo treatment because of the perceived lack of affordable alternatives.

Healthcare facilities in other countries tend to be judged as inferior to the ones in the US for various reasons. Among the prevalent reasons for this fallacy are the lower costs, which tend to remind many consumers that they pay for what they get.

However, with enough research and a little openness, more people will be able to see that medical travel continues to increase in popularity for a good reason. Countless patients have already traveled thousands of miles to receive treatment for their condition for a fraction of the cost and they couldn’t be happier with the results.
