For medical tourism, the Philippines is fast becoming a sought-after destination. More than 2,00000 come to the country annually to avail expert services from medical and dental professionals. Filipino workers and expats staying overseas also travel back to the country to avail of medical and dental treatments. All these factors make the Philippines among the preferred medical tourism destinations of the world. The advantage for coming for medical tourism in the Philippines is that many healthcare providers in the country speak English.
Foreigners coming to the Philippines know that health and wellness facilities in the country are of high standards and are available at very reasonable prices. The country has an abundance of skilled cosmetic surgeons who specialize in face lifts, rhinoplasty, abdominal tucks and breast augmentation. The best part is, majority of these procedures cost much less than the cost in developed countries. Many surgeons in the Philippines are considered to be the best in their field.
However, the Philippines needs to continuously improve its healthcare services to reach the top spot. The Philippines is in a good position to compete due to the sector’s improved systems and top notch healthcare services, along with well-trained professionals in the country’s leading hospitals and medical clinics. Hence, the Philippines is a serious competitor in the global medical tourism market. Cosmetic surgery, wellness treatments and dentistry are just some of the specialty care that the country offers.
