When should I consider treatment abroad?

6/11/2017 | By: Medix team

Obviously, if the treatment is not available locally, but other than that, we have some more advice for you

Deliberating between undergoing treatment locally or abroad is mostly based on the availability and quality of the treatment locally.

Here are three situations in which you should seek treatment abroad:

  The treatment isn't available locally.

  The treatment is available locally but physicians performing it have little experience.

  The given diagnosis is extremely rare.


Even if you meet some of these criteria, there are two more considerations that you should take into account.

  1. Home Advantage – When possible, it is usually best to be in a familiar setting with regards to language, customs, culture, weather and of course familial support. Most patients take this into consideration, but when it comes down to it have a hard time coping with difficult times while being detached and far away from home. The mental condition of the patient and her family has a significant impact on the odds of recovery.

  2. Finding a Specialist – finding an appropriate specialist is no simple matter and carrying out the research alone is difficult. The main criterion is experience, because experience creates knowledge and specialization. It is unadvisable to be treated by an inexperienced doctor but by the same token, experience does not always mean quality. In more populous countries, higher volume of patients can create more experience, while at the same time success rates may remain low.

    Some people believe that if they refer to reputable medical institutions they will be treated by the best doctor; however this too is no guarantee. There are quite a few small, not as well-known facilities which have specialized and offer excellent levels of services.

 

So remember, "Not all that glitters is gold". Healthcare services in Hong Kong are excellent and in most cases getting treated locally is just as good as anywhere. Ask yourself, does the medical gain outweigh and justify the heavy monetary and emotional cost.
