According to a recent report from the Swiss Tourism Board, more than 35,900 foreign patients visited Switzerland for medical treatment in 2019. This generated a boost for tourism accounting for 490,000 overnight stays. One medical practice that has experienced an increase in foreign patients is a urology practice in Basel.
Dr. med. Alexander Deckart, who is a urologist in Switzerland has welcomed the efforts of the Swiss Tourism Board who are promoting Switzerland as a leading health tourism destination. The practice based in Basel provides a range of urology services including prostate screening, fertility, vasectomy, diagnosis, operations and more.
One of the main reasons for patients visiting Dr. med. Alexander Deckart is the excellent service they receive and the cut in waiting time. Urology patients in the UK and the USA are becoming fed up with the long waiting list. By flying to Switzerland and visiting the Basel Urology clinic they can be seen and treated much quicker than they could at home. With the urology practice in Basel providing superior service, they expect even more foreign patients to visit the clinic in 2020.
When asked how he felt about the increase in foreign medical tourism to his practice, Dr. med. Alexander Deckart replied: “It is nice to see that we are being recognized not only in our own country as a urology clinic that provides a professional and dedicated service, but also in other countries around the world.”
