World Medical Tourism & Healthcare Congress

Cosmetic Surgery Tourism

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — With its opulent hotels, fabulous golf courses and the world's largest shopping mall, Dubai established itself long ago as a first-class playground for the wealthy.

More recently, Dubai has been making a name for itself in another arena — luxury medical tourism. With the 4 million-square-foot Dubai Healthcare City, a place fabulous enough to make sheiks and celebrities feel at home, Dubai has been luring patients from all over the world who want to combine a nose job or tummy tuck with a glamorous vacation. The shimmering Middle Eastern city is merely one example of the growing market for cosmetic surgery tourism.

Medical Tourism Treatments

Having worked in international healthcare for the last five years, I had begun making some calls to healthcare providers known for the advanced orthopedic care that they provide to medical tourism patients. Tops on my list were facilities in Asia. I made the appointments and ensured I had copies of all my diagnostics — both in paper and disc formats — to show the doctors during my visit.

Not wanting to travel alone, I asked my mother to accompany me. Having never been to Asia, she was delighted. And, having gone through joint replacement in the United States, she was equally curious about medical tourism and healthcare overseas. We boarded our 16-hour flight to Hong Kong in Newark and off
we went.
