Ask someone who knows the best for you.
Pietra Global has a team of multilingual experts serving both the medical and logistic needs of the international health tourists.
We are able to offer our patients the best possible prices for any type of treatment. Thanks to our role as an active facilitator we have special price and service agreements with Turkish hospitals.
Our team builds up excellent treatment plans with exceptionally best prices for international health tourists.
We support both the patient and the medical team throughout the treatment process, help them with reports, translations, documentations and other similar complimentary services before and after the treatment, in order to allow our patients recover quickly and travel back to their homes safely.
What will the aftercare be like overseas after my surgery? Depending on your hospital and or surgery package, you will either spend most of your recovery time at the hospital, or more likely, you will transfer to a hotel or a recovery facility for the rest of your stay. This only makes sense as a night in the hospital may cost two or three times more than one at a hotel or recovery retreat. Your doctor will decide on the hospitality duration of your treatment and accordingly, we will arrange all the details for you and for your caregivers.
This will depend on the medical tourism procedure package you are going to purchase through your international hospital or medical tourism facilitator. Even if your package does include the cost of post-surgery lodging, it will be better to check and see if you can save money by purchasing your lodging separately.
Again, this will depend on the hospital and the treatment package that you are going to choose. The health professionals who are going to oversee your treatment will provide you with concrete information about the requirement of rehabilitation and its duration, so make sure to ask if this will be included as part of your procedure package.
In the event of a medical tourism complication, your international hospital and physician will arrange for proper action to be taken. It is therefore important to have a list of hospital contacts with you while you are recovering at your hotel. Some medical tourism complications may be very minor and require nothing more than a short doctor’s or nursing visit to your hotel. Other complications may require that you be interned again in the hospital.
