Price: Why are prices so low overseas?
Many countries don’t have hefty mal practice premiums like in western countries. This in the hospitalization and medical care reasonably priced for the medical tourists.
Hospitals: What is the level of quality?
It depends on where you go. The quality is all across the spectrum. The JCI accredited hospitals are generally of excellent quality and compares well with American hospitals. Trent accreditation and ISO are also respected. But at the same time, watch out for the medical facilities with much cheaper prices than the established hospitals.
Doctors: Can I trust these doctors?
Good question. Again, it varies upon where you choose to go. In some countries, the specialties are not well regulated by Medical Boards/ governments. In some countries, it is not rare to see a general surgeon perform a spine surgery. Again, go for hospitals with highest accreditations. They generally employ the best doctors with highest training and international exposure. The same thing cannot be said about the other bottom feeders.
