Urology Treatments Abroad and Their Costs
In this video
Urology is a field which works closely with other fields to check for, prevent, and cure problems with kidneys, bladder, urethra, and male reproductive organs. Anything related to producing and passing urine falls into the field of urology. Because of this, urologists have to work together with gynecologists, internists, nephrologists, venereologists, etc. Finding skilled and experienced urologists is not easy, as there are only a few in most countries. However, with the advent of medical tourism, people from around the world now travel beyond their borders to have their urinary tracts checked for problems, to get a second opinion, or to cure a disease related to the urinary tract or male reproductive organs. Most of the time, urologists deal with diagnosing the problems related to urinary tracts, but they are also called upon when it comes to treatment.
What is the cost worldwide?
There is a significant difference in cost when comparing countries around the world for urological treatments. The reasons for this are similar to the reasons for different prices in other medical fields: different overhead costs, staff salaries, importing or purchasing the equipment, taxes and liabilities, etc. The price is one of the reasons why people go to other countries to seek urology treatments.
The average price of a urological procedure around the world is $6,070. However, it is possible to find options which are much cheaper, it just depends on the country you look into. For example, the cheapest urology procedure that can be found on Placidway is for a circumcision in the Philippines, which costs just $36. It is also possible to find a wide variety of procedures and check-ups for under $100. On the other hand, the most expensive procedures have to do with penile implants and urethra and penile surgeries. These can cost up to $27,000, which is the highest priced urology package that we have on Placidway.
