Press Release Summary: La Paz Saturday 18th October. Simon Agius Simon Agius, Editor in Chief of MedicalTourism-Directories.com interviewed Medical Tourism professional George Adams during the "Latinoamericana de Medicina Congreso de Turismo."
Press Release Body: Port Vila, Vanuatu, October 29, 2008 -- MedicalTourism-Directories.com has been popular with attendees at the Medical congress including leading Medical Tourism operators and clinics. The interactive website has been engineered with Web2.0 functionality to ensure targeted exposure to consumers engaging in the booming medical tourism boom.
Nip and Tuck Solutions is a luxury medical Tourism facilitator presently offering medical travel to Panama, Colombia, Brazil and Argentina (and, in the near future, Australia).
When I asked George why medical tourism clients from the U.S. should choose Australia over such destinations as India and Singapore, which are well-known for offering medical procedures at a fraction of what it costs in the U.S., the answer was surprising. On average, heart bypass surgery costs between $110,000 and $125,000 in the U.S., but would cost only $38,000 in Australia.
An added bonus for medical tourists choosing Australia is the Exchange Rate on the Australian Dollar is almost 40% lower than the USD Dollar and the comfort level of being treated in an English-speaking country that shares much in common culturally with the U.S.
George went on to say that the private hospitals and medical specialists contracted are of the highest standard, having received specialty training in North America or the UK as well as New Zealand or Australia.
Nip and Tuck solutions works direct with Hospital and Clinics in arranging a client's medical tourism experience. Australian-based Nip and Tuck Solutions is the leading provider of medical tourism in Australia for North American patients.
Nip and Tuck Solutions handles both the medical side of the business and as an can handle the travel options, George says. Nip and Tuck Solutions assists patients on every step of the journey, arranging Premium Economy flights, four- or five-star accommodations and meeting patients at the airport. Nip and Tuck Solutions books the client's specialist appointments, surgery and after-care while in Australia.
George said he is very excited about including Australia as part of their destination portfolio and a new area of travel. "Watching US health expenses skyrocket," he said. "Here we have an opportunity and responsibility to help people save money, yet get world-class medical treatment in a stunning destination that every American has always wanted to visit. As the current U.S. economy causes cost-cutting pressures to mount, we are thrilled to be able to offer a desirable alternative." The individually tailor made medical packages that Nip and Tuck Solutions provide have days built in for clients to acclimatize themselves with their new surroundings before they go to the hospital or clinic.
Popular treatments for medical tourists include orthopedic, cardiac, general surgery, urological surgery, plastic reconstructive surgery, gynecological and fertility. The Cairns Fertility Centre in Queensland has recently combined its clinic with a five-star luxury resort, complete with masseurs and a spa. The clinic specializes in assisted reproduction and in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures, and plans to take in patients early next year. The facility hopes to attract 50 percent of its patients from around the world and 50 percent from within Australia.
George says that the medical tourism market does not rely on rely on seasonality, medical tourists will shift from thinking of Australia as desired destinations for leisure travel, to compelling money-saving destination for medical tourism in a market that will continue to grow as boomers age. Also, as medical tourism grows, more and more insurers are getting on board as a way to keep their own costs down.
