Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Medical tourism in Israel is a subset of the medical tourism industry in which patients travel to other countries to have procedures performed at a lower cost. Israel is emerging as a popular destination for medical tourists. In 2006, 15,000 foreigners travelled to the country for medical procedures, bringing in $40 million of revenue Medical tourists come to Israel because surgery and in-vitro fertilization treatments cost considerably less than in their home countries. Some seek relief for a variety of medical conditions at treatment centers and spas at the Dead Sea, a world-famous therapeutic resort. Israel's facilities are recognized throughout the world, with regular contacts maintained on a reciprocal basis with major medical and scientific research centers abroad. Another factor in choosing Israel is the comfortable climate and scenic locations which have a calming effect on patients. Israel is frequently the host venue for international medical conferences.show more
