The Doctors are joined by the President of the Medical Tourism Association, Renee-Marie Stephano, and Harvard professor and author of the book “Patients with Passports” Glenn Cohen to discuss all you need to think about when traveling abroad for a procedure.
Professor Cohen tells us potential patients have to look beyond accreditations, which are often more about process and procedures than outcomes, and consider the risks of travel itself. He says bacteria, the risk of being on an airplane while your body is in a compromised state, and the continuity of care once back home are all concerns. Additionally, he shares that it is much more difficult to sue for malpractice if treated in another country.
Renee-Marie Stephano lists Singapore, Thailand, and South Korea as three excellent examples of countries with superior medical expertise met by government regulations.
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra asks how to avoid a bait and switch after you research your doctor.
To avoid possible problems, Renee advises requesting that specific doctor in your surgery contract and Professor Cohen suggests you travel with someone who speaks the language, as well as having somebody there for support.
