High-quality healthcare services: Turkey has made significant investments in its healthcare sector, and its hospitals and clinics are equipped with modern facilities and technologies. This achievement is further enhanced by the collaboration between the Joint Commission International (JCI) and the Ministry of Health, as demonstrated through a protocol fostering technical support and cooperation in the establishment of the National Health Accreditation System. This remarkable accreditation milestone reinforces Turkey's position as a leading destination for unparalleled healthcare experiences.
For example, the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) is the world's leading professional body for board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeons. According to ISAPS’s latest report, the total number of aesthetic/cosmetic procedures performed in Turkey is approximately 1 million, which makes Turkey one of top 5 countries in this field. The other countries with the highest number of procedures are; USA, Brazil, Germany and Japan. Turkey’s proximity to Europe and cost advantage offers a unique opportunity for patients who choose to prefer top-rated medical care.

It is worth noting that Turkish doctors have gained extensive experience in treating international patients, owing to the significant growth in medical tourism within Turkey in recent years. This experience entails expeditious handling of medical appointments, pairing patients with the most suitable medical specialists, and delivering top-notch medical care without any delays and long waitlists - which can be detrimental in millions of patients' lives who wait between 52 to 104 weeks to receive medical care.
