What are prices and risks of having surgery or treatment in the Czech Republic?

The Czech Republic is one of the leading destinations for medical tourism in Europe. Low prices and high standards of care are tempting hundreds of Brits each year to take the short flight to Prague for medical treatment.

The Czech Republic can meet all your healthcare needs whether you're interested in fertility treatment, orthopedics, or plastic surgery. It's also a wonderful country to visit for a short break with a rich and varied culture and history.

The Czech Republic offers some of the lowest prices of medical treatment you will find anywhere in Europe. Costs are generally 40% to 50% lower than in the United Kingdom. For example, rhinoplasty in the Czech Republic costs in the region of £2.500. In the UK, you would be unlikely to find the same procedure for less than £5,000.

The Czech Ministry of Health controls all private clinics and hospitals in the country. Standards are, on the whole, very high with many clinics just as good as those you'll find at home. As with most countries around the world, The Czech Republic does have a handful of inferior clinics and surgeons. These should be avoided, despite their low prices. The risks of complications are not worth taking simply to save a few pounds.
