Budapest and Hungary have become massive hubs for the medical tourism industry. Their services range from corrective eye surgery and dentistry to elective cosmetic surgery and beyond. This should be of interest to businesses working in the medical field. Also, travel agencies and services looking to take advantage of medical tourism in this part of Europe are paying attention. But getting into the Hungarian market will require professional Hungarian translation services. GlobalVision can assist you as you try to get ahead in this lucrative field.
Hungary’s Medical Tourism Boom
The medical tourism boom happened during the 1980s and 90s. This accelerated after the end of communism in Central and Eastern Europe. People living in Austria and Germany discovered that they could access quality, well-trained surgeons in Hungary. The universal healthcare system for its own tax-paying citizens is at a fraction of the cost of other countries.
Soon, word spread about how inexpensive cosmetic, dental, eye and other surgeries were in Budapest. Hungary grew in popularity further afield (in the UK, for example) as a medical tourism destination. With internationally recognized medical standards and training, and the advent of inexpensive airfare from a variety of destinations in Europe and elsewhere, medical practitioners and companies were able to capitalize on Hungary’s stellar reputation for providing excellent medical services and cutting edge technologies at extremely reasonable prices. This attracted more clients from aboard.
Hungarian Translation Services, Dentistry and Elective Surgery
Hungary is now the “World Capital of Dentistry opens in a new window”. When it comes to dentistry and oral surgery, Hungary apparently has more dentists per capita that any other country on the planet. Many are centered around Budapest, but also in towns like Mosonmagyarovar and Sopron.
An army of dentists, plus a ton of qualified doctors and surgeons are offering the latest in laser corrective eye surgery, hair transplants opens in a new window, face and neck lifts. They also offer plenty of other cosmetic procedures. This is enticing “tourists” to flock to Hungary to fix their teeth, and other body parts as well.
This reserve of affordable medical talent means surgeons are seeking new customers. Companies working in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries now have a fertile ground to hunt for new opportunities.
Also, tourist agencies are looking for clients to send.
Hungarian, and international businesspeople, need to rely on quality Hungarian translation services for document translations and medical translations to tackle local regulations, set up shop, attract new customers, and sound the horn about doing business in Hungary.
