2. Safety

SurgeryEuropa works with a team of highly qualified professionals in state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment centers. Depending to the type of procedure, the patient is assigned to one of these medical centers or, if additional tests and consultations are required, to a professional’s private office.

hospital State-of-the-art medical facilities
Surgery takes place in the state-of-the-art medical facilities of QUIRÓN Hospitals and NISA Hospitals. Both are private healthcare groups, leaders in their sector who have been providing safe, high-quality health care for more than 30 years.
hospital They offer the most highly-qualified human resources and the most advanced technical resources required for each different branche of medicine. These hospitals have high-complexity equipment for all specialties, diagnosis and treatment services as well as hospitalization and ambulatory attention.

On a par with leading hospitals in Europe and the USA, both the NISA hospitals and the QUIRÓN hospitals make a consistent effort and investment to ensure that they have the most advanced technology.

hospitalContrast this with many third world country medical facilities where the equipment and techniques may not be state of the art. In 'Orthopedics Today', a respected industry magazine, John CY Leon, the chairman of the Editorial Board, asked an important question about third world country surgeries:
hospital "How is quality assured?...It is unlikely that they [foreign governments] will implement a system of quality assurance to ensure that the medical doctors and institutions offering medical tourism services are up to international standards."

iso2000 International standards
The hospitals and medical personnel of SurgeryEuropa either meet or exceed all international standards for medical care. With a view towards guaranteeing the service offered to their patients, NISA Hospitals and QUIRÓN Hospitals have set the goal of standardizing their working processes according to the internationally-recognised ISO 9001:2000 Quality Standards. By adopting these standards, these hospitals make a public commitment: they guarantee that their customers will receive the same, excellent quality service in every one of their hospitals.

3. Affordability

savingsThere are many reasons why healthcare is less expensive in Spain than in other countries. Some of them are:

  • Less bureaucracy/red tape
  • Less expensive medical supplies/equipment/medications
  • Lower government taxes
  • Less administrative paper shuffling
  • No accounts receivable collections issues with medical tourism patients (cash/credit card payment before surgery)
  • Lower cost of malpractice insurance nationwide - fewer law suits
  • Lower cost of labor
  • Some examples
    The National Coalition on Health Care has declared that "...the United States has $480 billion in excess spending each year in comparison to Western European nations [...] The costs are mainly associated with excess administrative costs and poorer quality of care". Read more: http://www.nchc.org/facts/cost.shtml.

    Quoting an article in the New York Times, "Health care costs are far higher in the United States than in any other advanced nation [...] This is mostly because we [americans] pay hospitals and doctors more than most other countries do." Read more: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/25/opinion/25sun1.html

    "Look behind the receptionist at your doctor’s office, and you will very likely see a staff of people filing claims to different insurance companies [...] The administrative costs of American patchwork bureaucracy eat up about 25 percent of health spending, [...]". Read more:

    One good way to understand the problem is to look at the share of health spending that the elderly account for in different countries. In the United States, people 65 and older have Medicare, which has administrative costs roughly as low as those of other countries’ universal plans. Younger Americans, by contrast, have private insurance, with all its inefficiencies. Yet, as economist Arnold Kling has noted, elderly Americans’ share of national health spending is similar to that of the elderly in other countries.

    The reasons and causes of the low prices of health care in Europe compared to other countries are many and too complicated to be further explained here.
    But the low prices of health care in Europe are a fact, even after considering the exchange rate.

    4. Guarantee

    guarantee SurgeryEuropa offers a GUARANTEE: There is absolutely no charge or obligation for our assistance should you choose not to proceed with your surgical plans.

    In most other medical care situations, if after making the arrangements, you choose not to receive the hospital's services, there can be a cancellation fee - sometimes as high as 80% of the total procedure costs. We want to avoid this type of situation, so we have implemented the policy below.

    Our Guarantee
    If, for any reason, you decide not to have your surgery even as late as after meeting with your surgeon and touring the hospital in Valencia, your deposit will be refunded to you by SurgeryEuropa.

    - There will be no charge to you for your initial consultation and hospital tour in Valencia if, prior to your surgery, you decide to cancel.
    - The deposit that you will have sent us to book your surgery (before you leave your home country) will be refunded to you if you choose.
    - We will not collect any money from you unless you commit to our services once you are here.
    - The only costs you will be responsible for will be your airfare, hotel/lodging, and any other travel expenses or medical expenses you have incurred up to that point.

    Please note: Surgery Europa is not responsible for any travel, food and/or accomodation arrangements or expenses. However, Surgery Europa can recommend which travel accomodation might be most suitable for you.

    Why we offer a guarantee
    At SurgeryEuropa, we offer a low-risk guarantee to allow our patients to take the leap of faith in moving forward with their medical travel. We are very proud and confident in the high quality level of our surgeons and facilities. We would like you to feel completely comfortable in moving forward by knowing that even after you arrive in Spain, you have the option to cancel your procedure at no surgical cost to you.

    We feel very comfortable in providing this guarantee - to date, we have never had a cancellation for any reason.
