With the cost of health care and wait times for surgery in North America becoming an epidemic, many people are looking elsewhere to find a solution to their medical desires. Medical tourism is by far the best answer; however, many questions arise when looking to go abroad for a procedure. Questions like: how do I know what destination is best suited for my needs? How should I go about finding the best hospital? How do I know that I will be working with an unparalleled surgeon? Thanks to WISE, all of your questions can be answered, without sacrifice.
The WISE management team created the World Institute of Surgical Excellence because, they saw first-hand the growing need in the United States and Canada for an alternative means to the health care "system" that is in place. Whether it was an insurance company dropping coverage of someone in their time of need, outrageous out-of-pocket expenses even after insurance covered their part, wait times sailing well in to the time frame of months, the lack of avaialbility of a procedure performed, or any of the many other reasons that people in North America were dissatisfied with the health care available to them, we at WISE decided it was time for a change.
After literally searching the world for the best place to send our patients, WISE management decided upon Costa Rica for many reasons; these include the fact that Costa Rica's health care is ranked considerably higher than that of the U.S. or Canada, Costa Rica is very close to the U.S. and there are over 20 direct flights per day, and many other reasons you can learn about here.
Through our team in Costa Rica, WISE has helped over 2,000 cheerful, satisfied patients attain the medical procedures they needed and desired so that they may get on with their lives, spend time with their families and focus on what really matters, being healthy and feeling happy.
