Spain has long been favored by patients coming from overseas. According to the World Health Organization, Spain’s health system is ranked the 7th in the world. Primarily private clinics are engaged in the system of medical services for foreign patients. Notwithstanding the high quality of medical services, the prices here can be delivered at fraction of the cost compared with Austrian or Swiss clinics. This is the reason why patients from the USA, the UK, France, and the CIS countries strive to come to Spain every year.
Medical establishments in Spain apply the cutting-edge medical equipment, vanguard medical technologies, especially in microsurgery, robotized and laparoscopic surgery. Moreover, doctors receive very advanced training, and friendly and attentive personnel ensure comfort and pleasant stay at the medical establishment. Personnel of most medical establishments speak not only good English, but also German, French, and Russian.
Overseas patients come to Spain for receiving high quality medical services in aesthetic dentistry, plastic surgery, orthopedics, ophthalmology, oncology, cardiology, neurology, and reproductive medicine. Each year increasingly more female patients choose Spain for delivery and post-delivery care.
Plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine are two of the most popular medical fields today. Spanish surgeons perform their job seamlessly. The range of surgeries is quite wide, including correction of drooping eyebrows, upper eyelids, removing the bags under the eyes, face and neck lifting , jaw implants, rhinoplasty, hair transplantation, liposuction, breast correction for men, and many more procedures. After the surgery patients go through a rehabilitation program in the mountains or at the coast of the Atlantic Ocean or the Mediterranean Sea.
Another highly demanded sphere of medical services in Spain is ophthalmology. The clinics offer comprehensive treatment and diagnostics of practically all eye diseases: cataract treatment, heterotrophy, eye orbits, retina, vitreous body, and tear-ducts.
For many overseas patients it has become a good tradition to combine recreation with complex diagnostics of the organism, which implies biological testing of the organism, genetic test, and preventive medical examination.
