Choose Taiwan as your next medical treatment

Taipei, July 12, 2021 – Taiwan is known for its amazing landscapes, delicious food, interesting and unique culture and friendly people, but did you know that Taiwan is also considered one of the best places in the world for medical tourism? Thanks to the high quality and the relatively affordable price in all medical categories, many Asians and Taiwanese living overseas come for general health tests, dental treatments, LASIK, IVF, cosmetic surgeries and more. To that end, Taiwan offers a visitor visa designated for medical purposes.

Taiwan’s national health system is subsidized by taxpayers, and while there are private clinics, even public hospitals and specialists adhere to the highest standards and make use of the most advanced technologies at particularly affordable prices for tourists as well. The cost of surgery in Taiwan is usually one-fifth to one-sixth the price of hospitals in the US or UK, while Taiwan is no less competitive with other Asian countries – for example, the cost of knee or hip replacement surgery is around 40% less than the price you will have to pay in Singapore and Thailand. After the cost of airline tickets and hotels, you will save a considerable amount of money.It is important to note that lower price does not mean a decrease in quality compared to medicine in the west.Many medical experts in Taiwan have acquired their education and medical skills in North America, resulting in fluent English.
