Mud treatment

Israel has become a centre for people seeking specialised  treatment who want high levels of expertise and substantially reduced costs. Firstly, the therapeutic benefits of the Dead Sea mean that many international medical tourists travel there every year. There are three categories of patients that seek treatment at the Dead Sea; those with dermatological conditions, those with rheumatological diseases and those with lung diseases. Treatments are based on a mixture of factors that are unique to the Dead Sea; mineral salts, Dead Sea mud, the oxygen rich atmosphere and the mineral sulphur springs of the region as well as the attenuated ultra-violet radiation.


 

Today, Israel has become a world-leader in cancer treatment. Most hospitals offer full-service and high-quality facilities and an expertise in oncology that has become world-renowned.

Whilst the global average success rate for IVF is 20% per cycle, the success rate achieved in Israel is 25-30% per cycle. Not only is the treatment cheaper, so is the medication.

Another area in which Israel ranks amongst the best in the world is in the orthopaedics industry. Patients arrive from all over the world for treatment for bone, ligament and joint deficiencies.

Aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery techniques used in Israel have been adopted by doctors all over the world. These range from corrective procedures to more commonly-known cosmetic procedures.

 


Medical centres and hospitals offer treatment to overseas patients and have multi-lingual staff in order to be able to communicate with overseas patients.
