A whole new industry in health care is springing up as Americans go to other countries for treatment, especially surgical procedures. Not only is it considerably cheaper to have surgery in other countries compared to what it would cost in the US, but those who go often get to recuperate in a vacation atmosphere. This trend is known as medical tourism.
What are your thoughts? Would you go outside the US to have surgery that was much cheaper than at home? Would you advise a patient or family member to go overseas? Why or why not?
