If you are looking for credible surgeons begin by asking for recommendations from individuals whose opinions you trust. Here is are some other helpful tips.
Be wary. Many are tempted by the price offered abroad as they can be considerably lower, but you may be giving up many rights once on foreign soil.
Consider how much you are willing to, and able to, afford. Stick to numbers easy for you to cover. Only spend within your means. Procedures are expensive, but many can be within your budget.
Always ask for a consultation. During a consultation is a good time to ask important questions and discuss your personal needs.
Before undergoing any surgery, proper assessments must be done. Always have a complete physical done as well as making note of any medical issues.
Ask for Credentials.
Where did this provider study? Where did this provider intern? What papers, certifications can be provided? Is the provider licensed? Board certified in your state? How many years has this provider been in practice? Whatever type of surgery or procedure you are going in for, always be aware of the risks involved. Also take time to consider your recovery period and any needs you may have after the procedure is complete.
