Medical Tourism, SPA & Health

Romania Medical Tourism offers decades of experience in natural therapies and a developing healthcare infrastructure with very affordable prices.

Although not at all known as a medical tourism destination, Romania actually has provided for decades various natural therapies (mineral and thermal water baths, asthma therapy in natural salt caves, mud therapy) to foreigners either coming for treatment or on a holiday.

For the last decades, the medical sector has had a steady development, therefore, privately owned hospitals and clinics are offering a wide range of medical services, treatments and surgeries, for locals and for many foreigners that consider Romania, as the suitable location for solving their medical issues at a convenient price while the care and medical performance is one of the highest ranked in view of quality.

Procedures such as cosmetic surgery cost a fraction of most European prices. It’s an excellent location to consider for affordable plastic surgery, dental, wellness and spa treatment

RNCOS’ latest research report “Romania Dental Market Analysis”, indicates that Romania has emerged as one of the best cosmetic dentistry destinations globally and thus more and more people are visiting Romania to seek cosmetic dental treatments that are quite cheaper than in their own homelands.

Romania becomes an attractive destination for medical treatment in specialties like dentistry, plastic surgery, ophthalmology (iLASIK surgery), bariatric surgery, aesthetic dermatology, orthopedics, medical rehabilitation, medical imaging.

With one-third of all Europe’s mineral and thermal springs, Romania has a huge potential for health treatment based on natural cure factors. The curative properties of Romania’s many spas and health resorts have been used since Roman times. Located throughout all regions of Romania, they offer natural mineral and thermal springs, thermal lakes and naturally therapeutic mud, in a variety of locations and bio-climates, from higher altitudes of the Carpathian Mountains to the Black Sea coast.

Determined to put Romania on the tourism map as one of the world’s top destinations for health and wellness tourism, the Romanian Government has stepped in by making funds available for promotion, and also by selecting and licensing those health resorts that offer treatment conditions complying with EU and international standards. In so doing, the tourism and medical authorities guarantee the quality of treatment. Romania Tourism has launched a spa resorts guide with useful information about health resorts, and treatments available in Romania.

Romania’s main spas include: Mangalia, Neptun, Eforie Nord, Covasna, Slanic Moldova, Vatra Dornei, Borsec, Herculane, Buzias, Sovata, Bazna, Ocna Sibiului, Baile Felix, Tusnad, Calimanesti and Govora.
