Medical Tourism in Iran, among the best and cheapest in the world

Tehran (IP)- Chairman of the Board of Directors of 'Harris' Healthcare Tourism Organisation has said Iran's healthcare tourism (medical tourism) is one of the best and cheapest in the world.

Iran Press/Iran news: In an exclusive interview with Iran Press on Thursday, Mehrdad Mahmoudi, Chairman of the Board of Directors of 'Harris' Healthcare Tourism Organisation said: "Iranian doctors and specialists are world-class ones, and they are first-class professionals." 

"Healthcare tourism aims to offer the best possible medical services and treatment at the lowest possible cost, to offer the best medical facilities to patients from neighbouring countries who come here to receive medical treatment, and top Iranian doctors and specialists visit them", he continued.

"The patients while enjoying their visit to Iran might go sightseeing and visit historic and religious places. They can also get the best medical treatment with the highest international standards", Mehrdad Mahmoudi added.

"Currency fluctuations have created an opportunity for patients from neighbouring countries to come here and receive first-class medical treatment at very low prices. The high-quality medical services we offer is incomparable with some European countries. For example, patients with prostate cancer can be fully treated and cured in Iran at a total cost of just 20000 Euros, whereas of course, the same patient in Germany must pay at least 70000 Euros to receive more or less the same quality medical services and treatment. So it makes sense for patients to come to Iran and be treated here. We offer first-class medical services at a fraction of the cost here in Iran", he added.   

The Medical Tourism press conference was held in Tehran on Thursday, 5 September 2019, bringing together some of the best doctors and medical specialists from Iran as well as other countries.
