Medical Tourism In Hungary



Medical tourism in Hungary first started receiving attention in the 1980s. In all these years, the country has gained recognition and the local doctors have earned experience in treating international patients. Travelers from Europe and other parts of the world head to Hungary to get quality dental services and other healthcare treatments, of which dentistry is by far the most popular. Other medical treatments that are commonly sought after include cosmetic surgery, cardiac surgery and infertility treatments.  

Moreover, Hungary is home to an array of attractions that speed recovery and de-stress the mind. Most of these are outdoors and amidst the green, so naturally it has a pleasing and relaxing effect on patients.

Why Choose Hungary?

Hungary has established itself as Europe’s dental capital. Hungary offers a wide variety of topnotch medical treatments and the wait times are on the low side.  Plus, the doctors are trained and experienced and can personalize their services and treatment plans as per your needs.

Hungary has a rich culture and several medical spas and thermal baths where patients can recover and rejuvenate after their surgeries. The country has more than a thousand mineral springs that provide the ultimate healing experience for individuals seeking Wellness Tourism. Patients reel in the rich nutrients, enjoying the natural beauty around them and feeling completely relaxed and at ease. The water from the thermal lake in Heviz can relive patients of pain, whereas the Sarvar town offers thermal treatments that smooth the skin, introducing a natural glow. This is because the local water is rich in hydrogen carbonate. Moreover, flights to Hungary are easily accessible and affordable.

Healthcare and Medical Tourism in Hungary

Hungary is known all over the world as an affordable medical tourism destination, with some of the best doctors, dentists and medical professionals.

Dentistry in Hungary is the most heard of, with the highest number of dentists per capita in the world. Generally citizens of European cities, Middle East countries and western Russia visit Hungary for regular dentistry services like a complete checkup or examination and simple teeth cleaning. However, north American patients travel the distance, not just for general services, but for more elaborative treatments like dental implants and full mouth restorations. Even when doctor’s fee, medical procedure charges, travel and accommodation are included, the total trip expenses are only half the rate of similar treatments in the US.

Hungarian dentists are required to pass a five year training program and register themselves with the Hungarian Medical Chamber before they can practice. The State National Health Commission and Medical Service and Hungarian Medical Chamber set standards that must be complied with at all dental clinics and medical facilities.

Though streets in the towns and cities are lined with dental clinics, the offered services and expertise do vary. Also not every clinic may have dentists that speak English fluently. Generally, it is best to ask for recommendations or work with a knowledge medical tourism facilitator.

Most sought-after procedures in Hungary include full-mouth restorations, implants and cosmetic oral surgeries. With a simple dental implant costing around $3,900 in the United States, many people flock to Hungary each year, not just for implants but also for the country’s breathtaking beauty.

But it is not just dentistry that Hungary is good at. The country also boasts of state-of-the-art healthcare in all medical treatments. Other than dentistry, Hungary also offers plastic surgery, fertility treatments, anti-aging treatments, cardiac and cosmetic surgeries.  

Lodging and Hotels

Staying in Hungary is quite economical. The starting rates are $9 per night for a basic dormitory room. Private rooms can be booked for around $20 per night. Wi-Fi is free, and so is breakfast at some of the hostels. Budget hostels are available for around $22 per night for a single room. The charges for a double room are a little higher at around $36 per night. 3 and 4 star hotels cost around $43 and $86 per night, respectively.

If you prefer a little excitement, you can set up a tent and camp on open grounds. As for the food, your daily expenses should be around $9 to $12.
