Healthcare in Romania
Romania has top medical schools and state of the art equipment, especially in the private sectors. Healthcare workers are very well trained and can do a great job for very low prices. For example, getting a tooth extraction can only cost you around $12, and getting a new one can cost yo around $25. Compared to the US these prices are a steal!
The tooth example was not completely out of the blue. The number one reason medical tourism clients travel to Romania is for the dental care system. The number two reason is cosmetic surgery. From a recent study it appears that whoever travels here for each of this reasons is very satisfied and will most likely further recommend Romania to a friend or relative.
Medical Tourism in Romania
Lately, Romania has done a big “export” of doctors. Usually our trained staff leave for Western countries, where they can find better wages and life conditions.Source: https://www.politico.eu/article/doctors-nurses-migration-health-care-crisis-workers-follow-the-money-european-commission-data/
Despite that, a lot of very well trained staff still remains in Romania. So visiting Romania for medical purposes will for sure not be a disappointment in any regard.
Also, Romania has some perks of its own when it comes for tourists. Firstly, a lot of citizens now perfectly speak English. Especially in large towns like Cluj, Brasov or Timisoara. Another great thing about this country is that you can visit beautiful tourist attractions. You can view a list we made, right here.
We know of cases in which US citizens were staying in very nice hotels, while having their medical issue solved, and traveling throughout Transylvania (Home of Dracula and Vampires), and still saving up to 50% of what they would have payed in the US.
