It is a pleasure to announce France Surgery as a sponsor of our upcoming 7th World Medical Tourism Congress in Washington D.C. (Sep 20-24). We had the opportunity to sit with Carine Hilaire part of the management team at France Surgery and this is what she told us.
Q: Why is it important for France Surgery to attend the 7th World Medical Tourism Congress?
A: It’s important for France Surgery to attend the 7th World Medical Tourism Congress because it’s the biggest event for medical travel in the world. French hospitals and healthcare teams have only recently begun promoting their services on an international level and we are convinced that Europe and specially France, are the best compromises for medical travelers.
By taking part at the 7th World Medical Tourism Congress in Washington DC, our physicians will explain how by coming to France, one can easily save 30% on orthopedics, 40% on bariatric surgery, 50% on vascular surgery and up to 70% on Gastrointestinal enjoying comparable level of service and technology than in the US. They will also introduce the best French Centers of Excellence we have selected, taking care of the patient’s special medical needs, all oriented towards complex surgeries in a system where the doctor-patient relationship is excellent and technological innovation internationally renowned.
Q: What would France Surgery like to achieve this year at the 7th World Medical Tourism Congress?
A: There is no better way to gain the favor of staff or customers than to offer them an all-expenses paid trip to a destination like France which suggests luxury, elegance and the best quality of healthcare at very competitive prices. While the proposition may seem overly generous, this is a true win-win situation: Insurers and companies can reduce costs significantly while patients receive outstanding care with comparable services offered in the United States while enjoying an exciting travel opportunity to the continent of their ancestors.
We hope to meet and speak to many health insurers and self funded companies about the possibility of collaborating with France Surgery in the future. We have many exciting projects which we’d like to discuss with like minded companies to become, over the coming years, the #1 facilitator of medical treatment, surgery and assistance in France, and Europe.
