Each year, millions of travellers leave their country of residence seeking healthcare in other countries. This kind of travel for healthcare is expected to increase as more and more countries become involved in the medical tourism industry.

Travel for medical purposes dates back to ancient Greece, where people would travel temple of Asclepius, the Greco-Roman god of medicine. Occurring thereafter throughout history, medical travel included travel to places such as Bath and Vichy by patients seeking treatment for various medical conditions.

In the modern era, the decision to seek medical care in another country is typically influenced by costs, privacy concerns, medical restrictions, and the appeal of the destination country, which can include the tourist attractions available, in addition to the quality of healthcare that can be provided in the destination country.

These days medical tourism refers not only to those seeking specific procedures outside of their country of residence, but also encompasses medical treatment sought by people already touring or visiting, who find themselves needing either acute medical care while they are travelling, or need to continue with maintenance care of ongoing medical conditions while they are outside their country of residence.

  • If you are looking for less expensive alternatives for medical or cosmetic treatment, but want the assurance of high-quality healthcare.
  • If you are visiting Canada and have a pre-existing condition that requires ongoing treatment during your stay.
  • If you are visiting Canada and require un-planned/unforeseen medical care.

Canada provides a quality option to travellers seeking medical care in an age where quality is of great importance, and patients are more and more concerned about safety, scams, and illegal operations. Medical tourism to Canada has been estimated in the range of $50 million dollars in 2013, with market increases expected.

The cost of healthcare in the United States is among the highest in the world, and more than 13 percent of Americans have no health insurance. Are you a U.S. resident seeking less expensive treatment? – look no further than cross-border healthcare. Choosing to have your medical treatment in Canada presents the opportunity to receive excellent quality healthcare, from highly trained doctors, at a fraction of the cost.

If you are not a Canadian resident, you do not need a referral to visit us at Wilderman Medical Clinic, however, please bring all relevant health documents and information with you to your appointment.
