Gastric Bypass Abroad: Why Men And Women in The UK Choose Bariatric Surgery Abroad
Traveling abroad with a goal to have a medical treatment in another country is known as Medical Tourism. More and more people each year choose to go abroad for various types of surgeries: orthopedic, heart surgeries, cosmetic and obesity surgeries.
According to Andrius Jonutis, General Deputy Manager at the leading private hospital in Lithuania - Kardiolita: "There are a few reasons why people come to our country and choose our hospital for medical treatment: first, our surgeons are known worldwide for the high success rates of surgeries of various difficulty levels. Second, the prices for diagnostics, surgeries and medical treatment are still very low in Lithuania compared to other European countries. Then there comes a perfect geographical location and convenient travel (short distance), and non-existent infection rates.”
Over the past few years, the number of patients who had gastric bypass surgery done in Kardiolita, has been increasing steadily. Another reason for this is that additionally to saving up to 60% on the surgery, patients do not need to worry about anything else as the patient and the leading person are being taken care of, from start to finish, including the rehabilitation if needed.
