Earnings on medical tourism - hundreds of millions of American dollars


Medical tourism is one of the popular tourist destinations. Every year Turkey's popularity among those who need high-tech treatment is increasing. The revenue from medical tourism in the first three quarters of 2017 was $ 600 million, which is 17.5% more than in the same period last year.

From January to September in 2017, about 235,000 foreign tourists visited the country specifically to perform an operation, rehabilitate or otherwise improve their health in the Turkish clinic. The income from medical tourism services amounted to $ 600 million. On average, one tourist arriving for treatment spends $ 2.5 thousand in the country. Normal vacationers leave about $ 630 per person in Turkey.

The popularity of Turkish medical services is easily explained. The doctors in the country are well trained and attentive, the clinics use modern medical and diagnostic equipment. And the cost of services is 40-60% less than in the so-called developed countries. This applies to medical surgery, and cosmetic manipulation. For example, surgery for hair transplantation is very popular with tourists.
