Secret Surgery’s Guide to Surgery Abroad – Part 4
Choosing a Provider
When you choose to have surgery abroad, knowing where to go and how much you can afford is just the beginning. You need to pick the very best when it comes to medical providers too, and it can be tricky to know which company is right for you.
First off, make sure you feel comfortable with them. Any doubts, and you should probably look elsewhere. Of course you want to ask questions; of course you want to be reassured! If the company is becoming impatient or seems unsympathetic to your concerns, it’s probably safe to say that they’ll be as rushed when it comes to your surgery.
So ask away, and expect firm answers. It’s no light undertaking to decide to go abroad for surgery, so be prepared to give all you’ve got in terms of pushing for total costs. Even if you’re opting for an all-inclusive package, the broker should have all the information at hand to let you know who your surgeon is, and the proof of his or her accreditations
Ask questions, and then ask some more. You need to feel confident with the answers given, and you may have to undertake some extensive research yourself. Once you’ve verified the surgeon’s qualifications and credentials, know all there is to know about the procedure you’ve elected for. You should feel confident that you can afford everything involved in the experience, be able to affirm ‘This is the right provider for me.’
Here at Secret Surgery, we don’t hide away from questions, no matter how many you have to throw at us or how taxing they may be! All of our surgery is performed at our EMC Specialist Hospital and Outpatient Clinic, distinguished by both the Polish Ministry of Health and the Polish Association of Surgeons. Our surgeons are fully qualified, and we provide fully-inclusive packages with no ‘hidden costs’ to worry about.
In our opinion picking a specialist surgeon for the procedure you want is a MUST! For example you want a qualified and registered plastic surgeon to carry out your cosmetic surgery procedure – Not a general surgeon who dabbles in a bit of plastic surgery here and there… So research the appropriate plastic surgery associations for the Country where the surgery will happen as well as International & European associations too! An example of which if it is a Polish Plastic surgery you should check the following links to see that they are recognised. Ask yourself the question why are they not registered if they are what they say they are?!
So get in touch and ask away. After all, our aim to is to obviate the stigma that surrounds medical tourism, and our priority is to make sure that you and your health are taken care of.
