MEDICAL TOURISM IN HUNGARY
Medical treatments & Medical Spa
Hungary is one of the flagship countries of European medical tourism. It is a well known fact that Hungary has one of the most demanding medical and dental educations in the world.
A quarter of all medical students at Hungarian universities come from abroad, and many Hungarian specialists teach and practice internationally. The main reasons for Hungary's leading role in European medical tourism are its long experience and practice on the international market. The success story began in the eighties, when Hungary was a popular destination for German and Austrian patients seeking top-quality dentistry and dental prosthetic services of Swiss standards. Since Hungary joined the European Union, medical tourism has become more varied and more international.
In fact, the cost of treatments and patient service is some much lower, that you can afford to fly to Hungary, undergo treatment, enjoy the sights, the culture and shopping offers in Budapest and still save up to 40-70 % on what you would have to pay in the UK, USA and Scandinavian countries.
The most popular treatments and procedures amongst international patients are dentistry, plastic and orthopaedic surgery, cardiac rehabilitation, fertility treatments, dermatology and anti-aging treatments, obesity treatments, addiction programs and eye surgery (both general and ocular implantation), cosmetic surgery.

Since the primary motif of medical tourism is recovery and rehabilitation, the main target groups are guests suffering from chronic diseases or those wishing to ease their pain.
During this period, the patients chiefly require medical treatment but often make use of tourism services as well. Between medical and tourism services built typically on natural medicinal factors (mineral water, medicinal cave, mud and microclimate), the emphasis remains of medicine, supplemented by tourism services and attractions. Here we must mention medical tourism, which covers treatments of the non-health resort type, like surgical-, dental-, beautification-plastic and laser interventions but these can only be listed in this category if paired with tourism services.
