Frequently asked questions

What documents do I need to send you?

There are a few documents that will help to speed along the process. If they are available, we ask that you provide the following documents:

  • Medical and diagnostic reports in English or German
  • Diagnostic data
  • Medical images, such as ultrasound, CT, or MRT files (if you have DICOM files, please be sure they are saved in a ZIP file)
  • Laboratory results
  • A description of your current symptoms
What kind of treatment do you specialize?

In different countries, we offer different specialized treatments. While Iran is the most famous destination for fertility and cosmetic treatment. Germany is well known for cancer treatments. So based on your own personalized case, we would recommend you the best medical destination, hospital, and doctor.

Am I allowed to bring along companion to my treatment?

Yes. In fact, we encourage it; having support during your medical treatment can make a substantial psychological difference.

How Much Should I Budget for My Medical Tourism Trip?

Your particular preference, the medical tourism destination, and the type of medical tourism procedure you will be undergoing will dictate how much money you will be spending. In choosing your destination, you can also simply compare the prices. Iran is considered a cost-effective destination which is mostly because of its economic status. Not only the procedure is cheaper than in other countries but also the accommodation and food.

‍The other most important thing is your lifestyle preference.  Do you plan to stay at a five-star hotel or are you comfortable “roughing” it at a local bed and breakfast? Some adventurous souls prefer to immerse themselves in the local culture and will literally live on a low budget. The type of medical tourism procedure or medical tourism treatment you are undergoing will also play a large part in your decision of where to stay and what you will do. A medical tourism patient undergoing open-heart surgery or a knee replacement will require extra care and very comfortable conditions after leaving the hospital. Not the case for someone coming for a dental bridge or an eyelid lift. Wherever you decide to stay, make sure it serves your needs as a medical tourism patient.

Many of the expenses of a medical tourism trip will be the same as those of a “normal” trip or vacation. At the very minimum, you will need to budget for airfare, hotel accommodations, transportation requirements, and meals. Sightseeing tours and souvenirs are also a real possibility, particularly if you are traveling with a companion.

What are the Risks Associated with Medical Tourism?

Although there are many benefits associated with medical tourism, there are also certain risks that must be considered before making a final decision to travel abroad.

Varying standards and Medical Tourism

Varying standards with regards to hospitals and physicians can be a problem if you are searching for options within multiple countries with dozens of hospitals. Each country will have its own licensing and certification protocols which may vary significantly from your own country.

Travel after surgery

Traveling long distances after surgery also poses certain risks such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism. DVT may be defined as a blood clot that forms in a vein deep in the body. If the blood clot breaks off and travels through the bloodstream to the lungs, a pulmonary embolism may occur which is potentially fatal. Using simple preventive measures, however, medical tourism patients can reduce the chance of blood clotting and increase their likelihood of surgical success.
