Dental Tourism in Africa
Another popular aspect of travel to Egypt is its growing medical tourism. Egypt has some of the highest standards of cosmetic surgery in the world, and some of the lowest prices. The advantages of medical tourism are savings on medical procedures accompanied by a great escape from everyday life.
South African hospitals, clinics and high-tech facilities are attracting more medical tourists every year, especially those seeking high quality care and cost savings in procedures like cosmetic and plastic surgery, dental surgery and orthopedic and ophthalmic surgical procedures. Surgeons and facilities are registered and accredited by the South African Medical and Dental Councils. From accommodations to surgeries to taking advantage of exchange rates, medical travelers from the U.S. are generally able to save at least 50% of costs for similar surgeries back home.
