Medical tourism adds to appeal of Turkey's Antalya


Leisure tourism may well be Antalya’s greatest attraction, but there is another reason why people from around the globe make a beeline for Turkey’s famous Mediterranean resort city – medical tourism.

With its pristine beaches and natural beauty, rich history, and modern facilities, Antalya remains Turkey’s undisputed tourism capital, drawing millions of visitors every year.

The city also boasts high-quality medical infrastructure, including top doctors and state-of-the-art health facilities.

Hospitals in Antalya offer treatment in all areas, including major surgeries and organ transplants, dental care, hair transplants, and cosmetic surgeries.

Marianella Bustamante Calancia came to Antalya from Colombia for dental issues that had been bothering her for five years despite a surgical procedure back home.

“My treatment was in Turkey was quick and very effective. My pain is completely gone,” she told Anadolu Agency, praising Turkish doctors and health staff for their professionalism.

Natalia Evrikova, a 35-year-old Russian woman, said a friend advised her to seek treatment in Turkey for a persistent dental problem.

“The operations were painless. I am leaving Turkey as a very satisfied patient,” she said.
