In an article by Mestrovic MD, Ph.D., (2018), he speaks about where medical tourism began back when developed countries offered services that were not available in their own country. As we have seen where medical doctors went to other countries and helped people as well as brought them to the US to do medical procedures that they could not get elsewhere. In doing so they were helping people, as a good deed without cost to the patient. This has now reversed where people are going to lesser developed countries for medical procedures that are not allowed by laws and/or regulations in their own country or are less expensive to have performed. Such as we read in our text, Gonzalez-Padron, T. (2015),
this week regarding, harvesting organs from prison inmates who are being put to death and the manner in which they took the organs not being according to regulations. You can go to other countries where people are killed or maimed to harvest a body part. Some in the sales of their own organs.
The main problem in doing this is that some countries as not as aesthetic in the delivery of services or maybe less than qualified to do the procedure where mistakes and infections can occur. As mentioned in the article, inadequate quality.
We all know the cost of medical treatment of all kinds is expensive. Medical professionals from school on up are required to have insurance in case they do harm to others. The guidelines set forth are there generally because an issue has occurred in the past. A certain amount of trust is put forth when we go to a medical facility. These people are there to save our lives or prevent the worst or just make an ailment better.

Many families have decided to wade the waters of medical tourism due to a a number of reasons. Most have taken the leap into traveling out of the US to complete medical treatment(s) due to the delay in procedures for pandemic related restrictions and a fear of larger medical bills that outweigh any other concerns from having treatment done outside of the country. With the need of care and medical access that is quick and affordable for many the risk is worth the reward. “Millions of Americans traveled to other countries for savings of between 40 to 80 percent on medical treatments, according to the global medical tourism guide Patients Beyond Borders” (Yeginsu, 2021).
