Unlike other countries, 95% of healthcare system in Sweden is state-controlled and is highly decentralised. Nevertheless, state-financed Swedish healthcare system delivers high standards of treatment, both in public and private sectors.
The most popular fields of medical tourism are: orthopaedics, surgery, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, and oncology.
Orthopaedic surgery is surely the most demanded medical field among overseas patients. Most frequently they turn to private and state Swedich clinics for knee and hip joint replacement.
In the field of orthopaedics, they also perform examination and treatment in cases of undeveloped extremity bones or child skeletal dysplasia (dysgenesis), osteosynthesis, and child leg elongation surgeries.
Swedish clinics employ highly qualified professionals in the field of neurosurgery and brain disease treatment. Surgical interventions are performed applying the technology of medical computer visualisation of fine brain structures and gamma knife.
The following medical fields are also highly consumer-demanded: ophthalmology (glaucoma treatment, including child patients), oncology (examination and treatment of neuroendocrine tumours), obesity treatment using surgical methods (vertical banded gastroplasty, laparoscopic stomach stunting), as well as urogynaecology.
Medical care in Swedish clinics is characterised by perfect organisation and service provision. Before surgeries, a multilevel diagnostics of the whole organism and diagnostics by field is performed. Patient’s convenience and comfort are given foremost attention, as well as substantial nutrition during the whole period of stay at the clinic. After the course of treatment patients are offered to undergo a rehabilitation programme.
Recommended time for treatment: April through October.
Swedish Spa resorts have for decades been attracting the lovers of pristine Scandinavian nature and “natural luxury”. Many resorts opened back in the beginning of ХХ century, for example, in Loka Brunn and Medevi Brunn near Stockholm. Only here you can undergo one-of-a-kind recovery and relaxation programmes based on applying not only seawater, but also mineral water from Lake Vättern, as well as extracts of the northern berries and herbs.
Today, Riksgränsen has the most appeal for visitors from the USA, France, and the CIS countries among other Swedish Spa resorts. It is situated in the wonderful country of Lapland, 300 km towards the pole from the polar circle. Some procedures of local Spa were borrowed from the indigenous population of Lapland – the Sámi. The atmosphere here is most of the times like a fairy-tale alive: quiet, bushy dwarf fur-trees, endless sea, sandy shores with picturesque piles of stones, and the unmatched fresh and pleasant Scandinavian breeze.
Even a walk through such scenery fills the soul with calm and peace. Add also bathing in thermal pools, massage and special skin care with the local gifts of nature, and you will be able literally to soak up this freshness. By the way, all dishes on the menu are cooked only from natural and ecologically clean products grown or gathered nearby.
