Medical tourism is becoming increasingly popular all over the world. High quality services, impeccable level of professionals, lower price tempts to come to a foreign country to perform various types of surgery. Bariatric surgery – gastric sleeve, gastric bypass and even revisional bariatric procedures are no exception. But how to choose? Why should Turkey be removed from the list, and Lithuania appear at the top? Newman Bariatric Clinic surgeon Antanas Mickevičius answers these questions.

As he said, clinics in Lithuania are modern and deluxe, while doctors use the latest and most reliable treatment methods with state-of-the-art operating equipment. Lithuania’s medical equipment, quality of care and follow up are strictly regulated by European standards, while Turkey cannot offer the same quality guarantee. So why choose Lithuania instead?

Depending on the desired procedure scale it can save you a lot of money and time. You can still expect excellent treatment outcomes and the highest quality customer service despite lower prices. Also the waiting time for the procedure is not that long. Supposingly you don’t want to wait half a year or more to receive weight loss surgery in your country. In that case, you should consider Lithuania as an excellent alternative. You can book a free consultation with bariatric surgeon to find the waiting time for your desired procedure.

Lithuania is a hidden gem in Europe – you need to visit

Two international airports – Vilnius and Kaunas offer a wide range of flight routes for both, luxury and budget-friendly passengers. Regular ferry services connect Lithuania, Sweden and Germany. And there’s even a new railway route Rail Baltica that connects Lithuania to the rest of Europe via rail, so you can find your way here quickly and fuss-free.

Lithuania – a safe, reliable and top-class service country

Although Turkey still receives countless visitors in medical tourism, their services are not reliable. Many do not even know about unprofessional equipment, low-quality services, lack of education of doctors. Especially in bariatric surgery, where you often hear about severe complications, poor patient condition, poor weight loss results, or even death.

Therefore, choose responsibly – Lithuania and its professionals and impeccable reputation can be a great alternative in terms of price, but not quality.
