Weight Loss Surgery Turkey Price
Weight Loss Surgery Turkey Price: “Why is weight loss surgery less expensive in Turkey?” is a common question we get. Medical equipment and standards in Turkey are just not as tightly regulated as they are in the United Kingdom and other EU countries. Because Turkey is not a member of the European Union, it does not have to follow the same rigid criteria as France and Germany do. You might save a little money, but the risks of a low-cost operation much exceed the advantages. If a problem arises, you are unlikely to be insured; you are not protected by the CQC or EU legislation, and in many situations, there is no aftercare at all.
Take, for example, gastric sleeve surgery. Standard equipment prices for this treatment range from £1,500 to £2,000, however some Turkish hospitals are asking as little as £3,000 for gastric sleeves that include “5-star” lodging for several nights. The quality of the instruments in the UK and Turkey is likely to be similar, but the fundamental difference is that UK surgeons discard their instruments after each treatment, but Turkish surgeons are more likely to reuse disposable instruments like staplers. They are employing lesser grade instruments and equipment if they are not reusing disposable instruments. Regardless, one of the most significant cost-cutting considerations for bariatric surgery in Turkey is the cost of equipment, but it is not the only one…
Turkey isn’t precisely impoverished (it ranks 20th in the world in terms of GDP), but their employees (surgeons, anesthetists, nurses, porters, and ward staff) must be paid less to accomplish surgical procedures at this price. Why? Several things come into play here: The value of the Turkish Lira has dropped dramatically due to the country’s currency crisis. Surgeons are paid less because they are not held to the same standards as those in the United Kingdom. Turkey does not follow the same data governance rules as the UK Bariatric Registry, which examines a surgeon’s surgeries every year.
