Medical/Health Tourism
« on: January 01, 2022, 09:13:07 PM »

Has anyone here travelled abroad for treatment or surgery?

Personally, I'm considering it since there is no guarantee that TriCare will cover excision/grafting

No, but I wish I had.  The care in the USA seems much more progressive than it does in the UK.  Over hear there is very much a “wait and see” attitude.

However, some of the costs for medical care and operations etc are eye watering!

Where would you go T6Pilot? I tend to think that one of the (few) advantages of the US healthcare system is that it is quite progressive and forward-thinking compared to the rest of the world. Most Peyronie's specialists worldwide are in the US from what I've read.
