Pietra Global has a team of multilingual experts serving both medical and logistic needs of our international patients.

We support both the patient and the medical team throughout the treatment process, help them with reports, translations, documentations and other similar complementary 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 particular 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 remainder 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. Studies also suggest that longer hospital stays increase your risk of infection or contracting an illness. Bottom line, if your doctor says you are good to go – then go.
Will I have to pay for hotel costs after surgery? This will depend on the medical tourism procedure package you purchase through your international hospital or medical tourism facilitator. Even if your package does include the cost of post surgery lodging, it doesn’t hurt to check and see if you can save money by purchasing your lodging separately.
Will rehabilitation therapy be included in my medical tourism procedure package? Again, this will depend on the particular hospital you choose. Orthopedic procedures such as hip and knee replacements will require extensive rehabilitation therapy, so make sure to ask if this will be included as part of your procedure package.
What if a complication happens while I am overseas? 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 or nursing visit to your hotel. Other complications may require that you be interned again in the hospital.
