Despite the prevalent number of state-owned medical centres in its health care system, Canada offers guaranteed high quality of medical services. The majority of medical tourists arriving in Canada are citizens of the United States of America. They chose the neighbouring country due to the possibility to receive top-class treatment at more affordable prices. In average, patients from the USA can save up to 20-40% on services in Canada.
Medical centres in Canada are facilitated with cutting edge medical equipment and apply the latest scientific methods and technological developments, and many of them even conduct scientific research themselves. In 2010, international organization Medical Travel Quality Alliance (MTQA) compiled a list of top ten clinics of the world which offer foreign patients supreme class medical services, ensure their safety, and present the widest range of services. Along with clinics based in Germany, Thailand, and Singapore, the top list also included Shouldice Hospital located in Toronto.
The most demanded medical fields among foreign patients in Canada include: surgical orthopaedics and traumatology, dental services, and checkup. In their work Canadian specialists apply latest achievements of nanotechnologies, biomechanics, innovative methods of visualising medical information, laser and ultrasonic technologies, methods of ultrasound bone cutting and fusion. Along with US citizens, visitors from other countries come to Canada to undergo prosthetics of hip and knee joint, and superficial hip joint endoprosthetics. Canadian professionals perform traditional surgical interventions, as well as microsurgical interventions and mini-invasive surgeries. Recuperation process takes place in comfortable rehabilitation centres, where special recovery programmes are designed for patients amidst pristine nature and healthful climate. Moreover, complex checkup and dental treatment can be excellently combined with recreation at Canadian ski resorts.
