Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, December 14, 2010 — People in America and Europe are increasingly traveling to developing countries to get better medical services at a lower cost. Factors that have led to the increasing popularity of medical travel include the high cost of health care, long wait times for certain procedures, the affordability of international travel, very high standards and state of the art installations that compete with the best of its kind in the USA and Europe.

A forecast by Deloitte Consulting published in 2008 projected that medical tourism originating from the US could jump from 1.5 million by ten times over the next decade. The Dominican Republic is emerging as a destination for such medical travel because of its proximity to the USA and its fine weather, which allows patients to experience a vacation along with medical treatment.

Dr. Alba Reyes Sagiv, an American Board Certified Surgeon, operates the Skin and Hair Transplant Institute from the Dominican Republic for more than 10 years, using the latest surgical techniques to help hair loss patients get full hair restoration with a personalized treatment. All patients receive personal attention and their total satisfaction is the goal of the clinic. This is in contrast to factory-like approach of many surgeons in the USA.

In the case of hair transplant surgery, cost plays an important role because lower surgery cost enables many more hair loss patients to go for hair restoration. Patients of Dr. Alba Reyes have saved 50-70% cost compared to surgery costs in the USA (average round trip cost from any part in the USA is only $350-$500). The clinic offers four packages with the highest quality hair transplant surgery along with the opportunity to enjoy the Dominican Republic as a mini-vacation during the surgery trip. Details of these packages are mentioned at:
