These are medical, and travel companies specialising in medical tourism - usually for cosmetic surgery, fertility treatment, dental surgery, eye surgery, or other specialist treatments - in overseas destinations.
NB. You may not enjoy the same level of financial security and protection if things go wrong when you book directly with an overseas company.
Furthermore, both the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons and ABTA warn that customers cannot be certain of the standard of surgeons and medical care abroad, will not be covered by travel insurance if complications occur, and in that event may need further expensive treatment back in the UK.
And, just to be absolutely clear, on this page my site-wide disclaimer goes double: I have nothing to do with these companies, am not recommending them, and have no information about the quality of their service. They could be surgical geniuses or dangerous quacks!
