People from countries with heavily congested health systems welcome the opportunity to choose the time of their surgery together and saving 40 to 70 percent, which is more affordable than European countries. While those from less-developed nations are attracted by Western-trained medics and new private healthcare services available in Turkey. Patients from western countries, whose medical insurance do not cover Orthodontic treatment and cosmetic surgery, prefer Turkey due to its low-cost labor and affordable holiday prices.
As a result of state led health system reforms and an influx of private investments to Turkey's healthcare landscape, the country is now a strong alternative for international patients. With 51 Joint Commission International- JCI accredited hospitals, Turkey's private medical infrastructure is now a well-built option in the global medical tourism arena.
In the EU and Middle East, medical tourism is often driven by the lack of timely access to quality care nearby. Therefore, some patients choose to travel in order to receive treatment in a matter of weeks. In other areas, quality healthcare does not exist so travel is the only option.
