What is all included when I travel for a hip or knee replacement to Costa Rica and how much will I save?

Stock PhotoQuality of treatment, affordable cost with great savings and a delightful travel experience are the three qualities that sum up what travelling to Costa Rica for orthopedic surgery means. Hip and knee replacements can be quite an expensive surgery in certain countries but Costa Rica is not one of them. On the contrary, this country has come to be identified as a centre of excellence in terms of quality and cost of hip and knee replacement surgery.

Travelling to Costa Rica becomes much easier when all arrangements are made through a competent medical tourism company. Internationally recognized companies have the mandate to organize for the patient the treatment they need and prepare for their stay while in the foreign country.  Worthy of note is that cost of treatment in Costa Rica can save the patient up to 70 percent off the cost they would have incurred in the U.S. To break this cost factor further, it means that a hip replacement that will cost over $50,000 in the U.S. will cost about $12,000 in Costa Rica. A similar price for knee replacement in the U.S. ($40,000) will cost the patient only $11,000 in Costa Rica.

Allowing a reputable and accredited medical tourism company to take charge of your travel to Costa Rica is very advantageous. Hip and Knee Replacement Center a Division of Passport Medical is one such competent company and it aims to provide you with essential services as you prepare and receive hip and knee replacement surgery. Therefore, what is included in your travel plans consists of a number of services. Firstly, the patient receives accurate information on where exactly in Costa Rica they will find treatment and whatever other information they would like to know about their destination. Secondly, the patient also gets informed about service providers and even initiate direct contacts with them if the patient so desires. Hip and Knee Replacement Center stands in the gap to co-ordinate the whole experience and further does this by organizing for airport pickup, accommodation bookings and even flight coordination if the patient wants it that way.

The rising trend of medical tourists’ influx into Costa Rica (mainly from North America) is a true reflection of the benefits of seeking treatment specifically in Costa Rica. Not only is the country safe but it also meets international standards of healthcare being rated as having one of the best healthcare systems, worldwide by the World Health Organization.
