South Korea is a rising star in medical travel, with a modern, fully digitized network of more than 20 international hospitals, including six that are American-accredited. In addition to the usual range of procedures, these hospitals and clinics are known for cosmetic surgeries and treatments for spinal disorders and cancer. This exhaustive guide covers everything travelers need to know about planning a successful medical travel journey to Korea. The first section deals with the basics — an overview of health care in Korea, financial considerations, budgeting for and planning the journey, working with a health travel planner, communicating with caregivers, what to do in case of complications, tips for traveling companions, and other essential details. The second part of the book profiles Korea’s top 20 international hospitals and clinics, while the third offers a comprehensive list of resources and references, a medical glossary, and treatment index.
