Are you ready for this fast growing and rapidly emerging medical business? Hard to imagine that this is the opportunity du jour for healthcare but yes…it is true that people are flocking all over the globe to save money, yes? Well…not really but does involve getting more “bang” for your bucks.
So…do you have the intestinal fortitude to brave both an out of country medical procedure (heart transplant as an example) and also consume “off shore” cuisine and water? If so, medical tourism might just be for you. Buy 1 trip and get 2 for the price of one..i.e., a vacation in a place you’ve always wanted to go and then a kidney transplant while you’re at it.
Wow…did I just say this??? I mean…aren’t kidney transplants supposed to be kind of sacred acts like…donating hearts or something? To think about leaving USA soil and going somewhere else for a kidney transplant frankly gives me the willies.
Oh well…for those “medical-trekkers” who fashion themselves after Spock “who went bravely where no one has gone before”…I say “good luck” and bid you adieu!
