- Medical Tourism: Is It Worth It?
Having out of country surgery, especially cosmetic surgery, there's a very high-risk. We're seeing this especially in South Florida, where we see the patients coming back with infections that are very difficult to treat. Recently the CDC, Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, put out a warning about going to Dominican Republic cause 27+ patients return to the North East with a type of macro bacteria infection that is very difficult to treat. And it's directly related to the cleanliness of their operating rooms and supplies. You're also seeing complications: bad results, infections, bleeding, scars uneven. And a lot of these surgeons, though there are few that are very well trained, the patients don't know who the rights one are. So for the sake of a few hundred to thousands of dollars, depending on what you're looking procedure wise, why risk your life. It's your life.
