Medical tourism is the combination of rest and treatment abroad. In recent years, this trend in tourism has shown rapid growth, namely 10% per year, which is twice as high as growth in all areas of tourism in general. According to forecasts, by 2017 the world market of medical tourism will reach the amount of 678.5 billion dollars, which will constitute 16% of the total volume of the tourism market. Treatment abroad is popular both in countries with advanced medicine, and in those countries where the level of medicine leaves much to be desired. For example, in the US, despite the high level of medical care, treatment costs are prohibitive, so many US citizens prefer to undergo treatment in other countries where the level of medicine is not worse, and prices are several times lower. In Russia and other countries of the former USSR, the main problem is the quality of medical care, which is still far from world standards, so celebrities and ordinary people often prefer to undergo treatment, to undergo surgery and even to give birth to a child in countries such as Israel orGermany. Especially among the inhabitants of the countries of the former Soviet Union, Israel is popular, only about 25,000 people a year go to Russia for treatment. Such popularity is due to the fact that Israel is one of the world leaders in the field of medicine, especially surgery and in vitro fertilization( IVF), while the cost of treatment in Israel is lower than in Germany and many other European countries, and if compared with the US, the difference is even more palpable: for some types of services, Israel is 7 times cheaper than the US.In addition, for Russians, treatment and rest in Israel are comfortable because due to the large number of immigrants from the former Soviet Union countries in Israel there is no shortage of Russian speakers among medical personnel and tourism workers in general. Do not forget about the healing water of the Dead Sea, on the banks of which there are many medical centers.

Those who have thought about getting treatment in Israel or another country will inevitably face the choice of a suitable clinic, specialists, the collection of necessary documents for treatment, and the preparation of a medical visa( if required).You can deal with this issue yourself, but it's better to entrust these preparatory procedures to professional intermediaries, especially given that such services will be free for the patient, becauseintermediary companies receive commission directly from the clinics, while for the patient the price does not change, regardless of whether he addressed the clinic directly or through an intermediary company. One of the leading intermediary companies in Russia is DocLand. The site presents data on more than 260 clinics and more than a thousand doctors from Israel, Germany, Poland, Spain, South Korea, India.
