Turkey Medicals, AA correspondent said in a statement, International Health Tourism continues great results and interests in general are paralleled to the topics, “That patients from abroad shows most interest in male and female hair transplantations, especially in vitro fertilization, dental diseases, aesthetic plastic surgery, eye diseases and thermal tourism,” was said.

A member of the Medical Tourism Board made important statements, “Health tourism is the shining star of Turkey. It is currently the most popular health service in Turkey as a locomotive service. Eye diseases, Plastic Surgery and Thermal tourism are also among the health services that attract serious tourists. Such organizations are extremely important both in terms of increasing interest in health tourism and in our country. If we manage to create interest in other areas of medicine, as in hair transplantation, I believe that in the near future Turkey will be one of the important actors of health tourism in the world.“

“The fact that the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Culture and Tourism and TÜRSAB have created serious projects aimed at developing health tourism in recent years also encourages the private sector. Our country’s hospitals, which already provide health services above world standards, can get a chance to attract large investment with very small budgets by increasing their overseas promotions. The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium were until recently the countries that sent the most patients to Turkey for hair transplantation. The largest agencies were coming out of here and patients were choosing our country for hair transplantation. But in recent years, the star of an unexpected geography has also begun to shine in this regard. For example, Dubai has recently become one of the countries that sends the most hair transplant patients to Turkey. Of course, turkey’s foreign policy decisions have a very important share in this. Is not able to distinguish between them. Increasing business volume with Arab countries and the Middle East naturally affects the number of patients who come to Turkey for the purpose of affordable Turkish health tourism.“

He also stated that the success of congress and fair organizations feeds the sector. Turkey Medicals added that he congratulates the organizations, participants and it’s member medical agencies.
