Our surgeons are ready to relieve your pain with the most advanced orthopedic procedures in a beautifully relaxing & stress free rehabilitation facility for just a fraction of the price of orthopedic surgery in the US or the UK!

Hungary has an all-inclusive health system for every tax payer which is similar to the NHS in the UK and which was set up in 1945.   While there is a waiting list for example for elective surgery, it is nothing compared with the UK and a lot is done privately.  The private system doesn’t work through insurance schemes however as it does in the UK (like Bupa or PPP), but on a treat and then pay scheme.  The private hospitals and dentist surgeries are equipped with state of the art modern technology and facilities, largely due to the influence of the German clients who have been visiting the country for over fifteen years to take advantage of the very competitive prices for their dental and surgery needs.

All doctors have to be registered and receive permission to practise from the government department, Orvosi Kamara, (the Chamber of Medicine) and having passed their cosmetic surgery exams they become members of the Hungarian Association of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgeons. 

Surgeons and doctors are known simply as Doctor or Mr and doctors state their speciality.  Hungarian dentists and surgeons’ qualifications are acknowledged in the UK, and in fact many do work internationally/in the UK.  All clinics and hospitals have to be approved and registered with the government health department and all doctors have to also be registered, declaring their diplomas and qualifications to the same department, before they are allowed to practise at a particular institution. This also applies if the surgeon works at more than one institution then he/she has to be registered at all places of practice.


Why is the cost of orthopedic surgery in Budapest, Hungary so much cheaper?

Medical researchers in the U.S. recently went undercover to study the cost of hip replacement surgery.  Most hospitals did not want to release the total price of hip replacement surgery, but the ones that did had a wide range of prices:  the cheapest surgery was $11,100 & the most expensive was $125,798!
