477056649

First off, believing that the term medical tourism applies only to overseas tourism is a misnomer. Travelling in one’s country, probably to some other state also counts as medical tourism. Needless to say, it does enhance the reputation of the country in the established and necessary field of medicine. In fact, medical facilities for every citizen irrespective of religion, caste, color or creed is a constitutional right and no one can take that away from you.

The advent of medical tourism in countries like Poland and Columbia is partly due to the affordable cost of healthcare in such countries as compared to other countries in Europe and in North America. The technology driving medical tourism is just as important as the doctors and trained staff available. In fact, a medical traveler makes informed enquiries about the facilities available before purchasing a medical tour package.

shutterstock_70231246

Medical tourism has been fast catching up to mainstream tourism, being an equally profitable market for profit and encouragement of tourism. It is true that most of medical tourism finds basis in people travelling across borders for special treatment or exclusive procedures. Cosmetic surgeries and skin tucking treatments are very popular as medical procedures people travel for, though that isn’t the only thing which is causing such a tremendous outflow of patients from a country.

Geographically speaking, Cyprus is ideally located at the crossroads between the Middle East, Asia, Europe, Americas and Africa and therefore very easily accessible. A little known fact is that travellers would visit Cyprus to be treated by Crpriot doctors as far back as 9500 BC, and Cyprus was one of the early entrants in European Medical Tourism.
