How SkyMedicus Can Customize Your Medical Tourism Trip

As revealed by noted U.S. journalist Sasha Issenberg in his recently-published book Outpatients: The Astonishing New World of Medical Tourism, contrary to what some people believe, the overwhelming majority of people who seek treatment abroad aren’t high-flying wealthy elites getting elective surgeries like tummy tucks and nose jobs. Rather, the demand is driven by everyday, middle-class people who simply want quality healthcare at much lower cost.
And “much lower” doesn’t mean a few hundred or even a few thousand dollars. Even after all expenses are calculated – including airfare, hotel, ground transportation, and everything else – it’s not uncommon for patients to save tens of thousands of dollars.
For example, the New York Times profiled a Colorado resident who was quoted $65,000 for hip replacement surgery; and that didn’t even include surgeon fees, which would have taken his price tag over $75,000. Instead of selling his house or going deep into debt, he headed for a hospital outside of Brussels, Belgium – and paid a total of $13,360 for everything, right down to tips and taxes.
If you’re among the estimated 1.4 million Americans (source: Patients Beyond Borders) who head abroad each year for everything from smile makeovers to heart surgery to fertility treatments and the list goes on, here are 6 key ways that the SkyMedicus team can customize your medical tourism trip:
