What is Medical Tourism?
Medical Tourism is the practice of traveling to another country, state or city for the purpose of surgical procedures. Although medical tourism was popular in developing countries where the cost of medical treatment was lower, patients interested in cosmetic or plastic surgery have found New York City to be the destination of choice for their medical travel. With some of the best plastic surgeons in the world, New York City offers medical tourism visitors around the globe access to some of the world’s top hospitals allowing for peace of mind along with world-class entertainment and post surgical accommodations in five star hotels.

New York City board certified plastic surgeons offer a superior level of care and medical knowledge that is unparalleled by any other city in the world. The American Academy Board of Plastic Surgery requires a minimum of sixteen years of medical training to obtain board certification (link to NYC Beyond Excellence). And in the case of our doctors, many of whom are double board certified in both General Surgery & Plastic Surgery, medical training and education exceeds sixteen years.  Additionally, New York City boasts some of the most reputable medical facilities including, Columbia Medical, Memorial Slone Kettering, Cornell, Lenox Hill, MEETH, and many more.
