Each year, more and more citizens travel abroad for receiving medical services. Their main drive is absence of insurance policy covering fully or in part the cost of required medical procedures in the resident country. However, there is another side of the medal, as they say. According to recent data, a considerable amount (about 60 to 85 thousand) of foreign patients chooses the USA among other countries to obtain highly qualified medical services.

The US medical industry of all others has developed and actively applies a great number of advanced medical technologies. This is why health care system of this country justly deserves to top the rating list of the leaders of international medical tourism. As individual experts inform, the largest number of scientific medical research studies in the world are conducted in the USA. Since 1975, Nobel prizes have become a traditional award for American medical scientists, who become laureates more often than nominees from other countries. Consequently, US medics employ the whole range of the most vanguard technologies and innovative medical equipment.   

There are few procedures or treatments that aren’t offered, with everything from general surgery to joint replacements and hair transplantation available. Anesthesiology, cancer treatment, dermatology & plastic surgery, digestive disease, endocrinology & metabolism, head & neck, heart & vascular, neurology, ophthalmology, orthopaedics & rheumatology, rehabilitation, surgery, urology & kidneys, wellness & prevention are advanced developed areas of medicine. In the USA both private and public clinics provide a wide range of quality and effective services. The two leading medical centres in the USA offering such services to overseas tourists are the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic.

Quality services and high attendance standards of elite medical centre Cedars-Sinai Clinic are also demanded among wealthy overseas patients. Especially the ones from the CIS countries. Many of them come to this medical centre for delivery and gynaecological treatment. Besides, many patients from Western Europe and Japan come to the USA for undergoing reproductive programmes, in particular, with donation and surrogacy. And this is despite the fact that the cost of IVF and surrogacy in the USA is the highest in the world. Probably, most potential parents are attracted by the possibility to receive US citizenship for their children born in the USA. A significant plus is also the liberality of legislation in most states in regard to surrogacy programmes even for people with non-traditional sexual orientation.      

It is also worth noting that it was in the USA that the Joint Commission Organisation (JCO) was established for accrediting health care institutions. It designed the most perfect system of assessment of the quality of medical services for today. This well-reputed organisation has also established its international subsidiary, Joint Commission International (JCI) assessing the quality of medical service of patients outside the USA.

Today the United States of America is rarely viewed as the destination for recovery and resort recreation. However, this is a misconception: the USA has a great number of thermal springs and balneotherapy resorts that have gained popularity since the XIX century. They were established taking over European standards and hosted visitors from the elite. Unfortunately, today’s fashion for “simple” beach recreation has taken the palm of victory away from the US balneological resorts, so they nowadays receive mostly “the gourmets of recovery and recreation”. 

The major US balneological resorts are: Saratoga Hot Springs, Hot-Springs and Tyson.

Hot-Springs (State of Arkansas) is one of the most popular balneological resorts in the USA. There are about 50 hot springs located in this area which have given the resort its name. The therapeutic properties of these waters are beneficial in the treatment of musculoskeletal apparatus. Although, this resort has lost its former fame by today. There are only drinking fountains left with cool salty water (Saratoga spring waters applied in case of joint and heart diseases). Water enriched with silica acid, calcium, and soda is used for water procedures and drinking courses.

Saratoga Hot Springs (State of New York) is a mountain resort with chloride-sodium and carbon dioxide alkaline waters. Treatment profile includes heart and joint diseases. Some time ago, famous writers and artists came for recovery courses here. However, today this resort has undeservingly fallen into oblivion. There are several mineral water fountains on the territory of Saratoga springs.

Tyson balneological resort (State of Arizona) specialises in tuberculosis treatment. Positive results of treatment and recovery process are achieved owing to climatotherapy and solar activity. Weight reduction and anti-stress therapy programmes are also much demanded here. They take place amidst orchards, parks, and lakes.

At numerous sunlit beach resorts of the USA overseas guests are offered to take relaxation, cosmetological, tonus increasing, and many other spa procedures. Some outstanding resorts are Boca Raton, San Diego, Laguna Beach, Malibu, Key Biscayne, Santa Monika, and Santa Barbara, the areas of Miami and the Hawaii Islands. Spreading on the azure ocean coast, along the endless golden beaches, in the shade of coconut palms, these locales hold fashionable hotels, spa and thalassotherapy centres. The list of their services necessarily includes a variety of massages, face and body care procedures, all kinds of water procedures, wrappings, mud procedures, and much more.
