Therapeutic Tourism

    Patients travelling from developed countries to the other places in the world for medical and therapeutic issues, often for finding low-cost treatment is called therapeutics/health tourism. In least developed countries, many patients are forced to travel to developed countries due to lack of medical facilities in their own countries; but as noted in the definition, therapeutic tourism are different from such trips. Services sought by travelers include advanced surgeries such as joint surgery (hip/knee joint), cardiac surgery, dental surgery and cosmetic surgery. People with rare genetic disorders usually travel to countries that are well-known for treating this type of disease. Some travelers also travel to other countries for traditional treatments, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, etc. Over 50 countries have recognized therapeutics/health tourism as a national industry.
    The first recorded example of therapeutic tourism came back thousands of years ago, when Greek immigrants from all over the Mediterranean lands traveled to a small, sacred place in the Saraonic Bay called “Epidauria”, where it was known as the territory of the god of healing and treatment, Asclepius. Sometimes mineral springs are also known as the first form of therapeutic tourism. For example, in the 18th century in England, patients referred to mineral springs for the treatment of diseases such as gout, bronchitis, and liver disease.
    Creating a world-wide global healthcare destination is very complicated and difficult. We consider various factors. Including:
    • Government and private sector investments in the infrastructure of medical units
    • Quality assurance, transparency in work
    • Political transparency and social stability
    • Excellent infrastructure in the tourism industry
    • Credibility in medical advances
    • History of medical innovations and achievements
    • New and modern therapeutic technologies
    • Availability of experienced and trained staff internationally
    What are the medical needs of travelers?
    • Cosmetic surgery
    • Dentistry (General, Surgery, Cosmetic)
    • Cardiovascular (angiography, transplantation, CABG)
    • Orthopedics (joint and spine, sports therapies)
    • Cancer (usually as the last option)
    • Sterility
    • Weight Loss
    • Tests, scans and ... for doctors review
    How big is this market?
    Finding the answer to this question can be a little bit difficult, because among the world's largest research companies, forecasts and estimations are widely different. This difference is due to the contradiction in defining the term “therapeutic travel”. Also, there are little reliable and accurate data. Our definition of a therapy traveler is anyone who travels abroad to receive treatment except for tourists who are in emergency need, those who are exiled from their country or patients' companions.
    Is this market growing?
    Yes. People’s age is constantly increasing therefore there will be less access to high quality care resources. It is estimated that the growth rate of the therapeutic tourism market is rising between 15% and 25%, with the highest growth rates for the north, southeast and south of Asia.
