- Why is an eye surgery more expensive in Europe?
The central-Europe countries are some of the most expensive countries of the world. This is because the staff is more expensive as well as the high expenses on rents and infrastructure. In addition, advanced and high technology machinery is also too much expensive. And therefore, it is desired to have a large number of patients in order to have a profitable investment.
- Why are the prices so reasonable in Istanbul?
According to an OECD research, you only pay 45 Euro in Turkey for something that worths 100 Euro in Germany or Australia.
As a result, the fee of a surgeon in Turkey is lower than the payment his Europaen colleague receives. Furthermore, Istanbul has a greater potential in terms of number of patients as its population is over 12 Millions; and this makes it possible not only to purchase high-tech laser machineries for the same price in Europe but also to offer lower costs of surgery.
That’s why, Istanbul welcomes thousands of patients from Europe every year and that is the reason why MedicalTravel can offer you reasonable prices for a high quality service.
- Why is it better to schedule my travel with MedicalTravel when I can also schedule it myself?
Of course, you may plan your trip on your own. Yet, this is usually very exhausting and risky. And MedicalTravel offers an “All-inclusive” principle.
