Medical tourism has for many years been a priority area of the medical industry in Hungary. Thousands of private medical centres and practicing doctors are employed in the sphere of medical tourism. Cost-effective price for medical services along with its high quality make Hungary an attractive destination for patients from Germany, Austria, the UK, France, Spain, Scandinavian countries, Russia, and Ukraine.
The country is considered a European leader in regard to affordable dental services. Hungarian dental clinics are facilitated with cutting-edge equipment and apply innovative technologies, and professional training is among the best in Europe. Many dentists have an extensive practical experience both in local and in the best world clinics. However, the prices for dental services are several times lower than in the EU countries. In Hungary it is possible to receive all types of dental treatment, and also the services of dental implanting and prosthetics.
Hungarian clinics also provide other types of medical services. In particular, this is the destination for performing a complex checkup. Every year overseas patients arrive to have various types of surgeries in the sphere of cardiology, neurosurgery, oncology, orthopaedics, traumatology, gynaecology, radio surgery, and ophthalmology. An especially great number of patients have plastic surgeries performed here (liposuction, all-round face lift, breast augmentation (enlargement) and reduction, eyelid plastics, alteration of ear form, rhinoplasty, etc.), as well as non-surgical methods of aesthetic medicine.
Hungarian professionals have a good reason to recommend their patients combining medical treatment with recovery and recreation at the thermal resorts of the country. This ensures faster recovery after the performed surgery or treatment. At resorts you will be offered various rehabilitation programmes developed and suited specifically for each individual patient. Today Hungary has to offer thermal spa centres in over 85 towns and communities.
Recommended time for treatment: spring and autumn.
Hungary has for many years kept the position of one of the most visited countries in Europe when going for recovery and resort recreation. There are especially a lot of visitors from the CIS countries, Western Europe and the USA. Foreign patients are attracted by high standards of services, quality and professional treatment, all at affordable prices.
Over 100 of bath-houses and 400 mineral springs of Budapest every year return health and endow with longevity the patients with the disorders of peripheral blood circulation and metabolism, diseases of musculoskeletal apparatus, digestive tract, and gynaecological problems. Foreign patients take drinking courses with sulphurous mineral and thermal hydrocarbonated mineral waters, water procedures, mud treatment, therapeutic massage, and also attend salt chambers.
Patients with acute respiratory diseases, lingering colds (particularly with complications) come to the Tapolca Lake for undergoing a very unique course of inhalations in local thermal caves.
After a stay at the Heviz Lake patients note that each natural component here has a healing effect. Main indications for stay here are the diseases of musculoskeletal apparatus, digestive tract, skin, gynaecological problems, female hormonal and male potency disorders. The Lake is fed by thermal springs, and the water is replenished every 28 hours. This water is used for swimming, therapeutic baths, and water drinking courses. During cold seasons, high temperature causes the steam to rise above the lake and creates a healing microclimate. This time period is ideal for patients with respiratory diseases. The silt is also applied for treatment and/or recovery. Its bacterial flora produces a natural antibiotic.
Wealthy foreign patients travel to Sárvár to strengthen their immunity, replenish their vital energy, and become healthy and youthful. The complex of spa procedures includes hydro massage, specially developed programmes of face and body treatment using therapeutic spring waters, rationally and carefully planned diet, and therapeutic physical exercises with a personal trainer.
