Traveling to other countries to have surgery isn’t that uncommon.
Even considering the time off work, travel, hotel room and the hospitalization, many people have found international surgery not covered by insurance more affordable than any type of surgery done in the United States.
Kaiser Health News said that because hospitals have begun to offer more affordable hospital costs, surgery-seekers are looking in to the U.S. for procedures.
However, http://www.medicaltourism.com/compare-cost.php?lang=en provided a chart with 2010 procedure costs.
Regardless of these contending sources, there are many hospitals all over the world where this information was obtained.
It is very wise to discuss surgeries with your doctor, as they understand issues many people have with insurance and are there to help you.
