Medical Tourism in Italy
Most people will not travel to Italy specifically for medical treatment. However, if you are in the position to afford private medical care and would like to delve into the rich, ancient culture of a country, then Italy is an exciting possibility.

The Italian healthcare system ranked second in the world in a World Health Organization (WHO) report in 2000 in respect to fairness and public accessibility. Private hospitals in Italy give clients all the comforts of a five-star hotel but the treatments available are often equivalent to those offered at state-run hospitals and are considerably more expensive for non EU citizens.

Italy, being the capital of fashion, is one of Europe’s major medical destinations for cosmetic surgery, with hair transplants among the best services on offer. General treatments and surgery are also on offer throughout the country, with bigger hospitals in the main cities providing better levels of care.

Italian doctors train for a minimum of 6 years with further study necessary to specialize in a particular area, taking 3 to 4 years. Thus, doctors are highly qualified and despite their time generally being divided between state-run and private institutions, they offer patients trustworthy and professional consultations.

If after your medical treatment, discovering Italy’s historical and cultural sites should be on your itinerary if your wellness allows. Its Mediterranean climate, wholesome food and delectable range of wines can be the perfect aid in recovering from treatment.

Although medical tourism is not considered a major tourism market by the Italian government, there are a number of professional outfits providing advice and direction in finding the best medical care available in the country.
