Poland is located in Central Europe. This large state borders Germany, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Slovakia, Belarus, and Lithuania and has access to the Baltic Sea. It is a beautiful country with a rich history.

Currently, it is among the popular countries for medical tourism. The country's 1.5 thousand clinics and large hospitals actively accept foreign citizens. Along with the European quality of services, the country is characterized by not too high prices. It is much cheaper to be treated here than in Germany or the USA — prices are 50% lower than in America and 40% lower than in Western Europe.

Below we will tell you about the Polish healthcare system, how a foreigner can come for medical treatment in Poland, and which sanatoriums and hospitals in Poland are considered the best.

Features of the Polish medical system

According to the Polish Constitution, all citizens who have issued an insurance policy have the right to medical treatment in Poland. Furthermore, the state policy applies to all holders of a European passport without exception.

The Polish Ministry of Health manages and regulates medicine and medical tourism in the country. It is supported by the National Health Fund (NHF) regional offices, which guarantee the availability of medical treatment in Poland for residents and foreigners working in the country.

There is a well-connected network of private hospitals in Poland where extra-class specialists work, and the service in such institutions meets the highest standards. But the main burden falls on the public health sector, which is traditionally very developed and well-funded by the state. In Poland, all employed persons and their family members are covered by compulsory health insurance, which the National Health Fund provides.

Among the advantages of medical tourism in Poland:

  • Prices. The cost of diagnosis and treatment in Poland is 30-40% lower than in Western Europe and 50-70% lower than in the USA.
  • Qualified specialists. Doctors in Poland hospitals undergo advanced training in Germany, France, Sweden, Great Britain, USA.
  • Compliance with European standards. Hospitals in Poland are interested in providing the highest quality services to compete with European medical institutions.
  • The ability to combine rest and medical treatment in Poland. There are spas, sea and mountain health resorts, balneological clinics (mineral waters), and salt.

Since 2004, Poland's medical care level has been steadily increasing. The government and other EU countries fund local research in the field of medicine. Doctors practice in advanced European clinics.

Best field of medical treatment in Poland

The quality of medical care in modern Poland will pleasantly surprise any patient. Taking seventh place in the number of SPA and wellness centers, Poland actively promotes a healthy lifestyle, body care, and a constant good mood.

Poland remains one of the leading centers for infertility treatment; a dozen hospitals in Poland using assisted reproductive technologies are located in the country's territory. In addition, there are 160 centers for invasive cardiology. That is the highest rate in Europe. Moreover, the clinical research market in Poland is about 1 billion zlotych. That is 3% of the total clinical research market.

Cancer medical treatment in Poland hospitals

The oncological departments of Polish hospitals use advanced methods for diagnosing the exact stage and type of cancer. They can detect the tumor's location with an accuracy of 2 mm, the presence of metastases up to 1 mm in size, and identify the damage to surrounding tissues.

The latest technologies allow irradiating only malignant formation. That minimizes the impact on healthy organs. Also, unique immunotherapy is used here to fight tumors, activating the human immune system and stopping the pathological cells.

Surgical medical treatment in Polish hospitals

More than 95% of all surgical operations in hospitals in Poland are performed using minimally invasive endoscopic surgery. Interventions are carried out through small incisions and punctures. The doctor gets access to the operated area using thin and flexible endoscopes equipped with a video camera, a light source, and microsurgical instruments for surgical manipulation.

As a result, oncosurgery, plastic surgery, neurosurgery, cardiac surgery, and orthopedic surgery are in great demand in Polish medical tourism.

Neurosurgery medical treatment in Poland hospitals

Neurological departments of hospitals in Poland are engaged in treating all nervous system diseases, including such severe ones as Alzheimer's, epilepsy, Parkinson's, and others. Polish neurologists use modern medications and effective non-drug techniques that allow a short time to restore the normal functioning of tissues.

Orthopedics medical treatment in Polish hospitals

Patients from many countries come to Poland to treat various injuries and their consequences. In Polish clinics, fractures and curvature of the spine and inflammatory diseases of the musculoskeletal system are treated, joint replacement operations are performed, intervertebral hernias are removed, and ligaments are restored. After the primary treatment, patients can undergo rehabilitation, allowing them to return to their daily lives faster.

The country also develops other areas – urology, gynecology, pediatrics, gastroenterology, dietetics, etc. As a rule, medical tourism in Poland is words of gratitude from patients for a great job done at an acceptable cost. On our website, you can get acquainted with the reviews of patients treated in hospitals in Poland.

Diagnosis in Poland

As a rule, the diagnosis in Polish clinics lasts 3-4 days, as in most European countries. The first day is a meeting with a doctor. Then, the doctor examines the patient's medical history and directs him to a diagnosis.

The second and third days are various laboratory and instrumental methods, which may include:

  • blood and urine tests;
  • X-ray examinations;
  • CT;
  • specific studies (depending on the disease, for example, myelography, scintigraphy, and so on).

After carrying out all procedures, a team of doctors establishes a diagnosis, based on which they develop an optimal regimen of medical treatment in Poland. This approach allows you to achieve a successful result in the shortest possible time.

The average cost of medical treatment in Poland

First of all, this country attracts prices. The cost of medical treatment in Poland is significantly lower than in Germany and Israel. So, if the standard check-up in Germany costs $4.000, it costs half as much in Poland hospitals. At the same time, healthcare quality in many areas is equal, even to German medicine.

Medical treatment in Poland has a different cost depending on the following factors:

  • varieties of the disease;
  • duration of treatment and stay in the hospitals in Poland;
  • specific diagnostic or therapeutic procedures;
  • the need for rehabilitation, etc.

Most of all, patients are interested in the prices of surgical medical tourism in Poland. It also depends on the complexity of the intervention. So, the simplest operations cost 3-6 thousand euros; complex ones can cost 10 thousand euros or more. For example, cancer therapy in hospitals in Poland (which includes surgery and conservative medical treatment in Poland) costs from 5 to 35 thousand euros, depending on the complexity.

The exact cost of medical treatment in Poland becomes known after all diagnostic procedures.

How about free healthcare?

Medical treatment in Poland can be both paid and free. The policy covers part of the expenses of the state's citizens. In addition, foreigners belonging to one of the following categories are also eligible for free treatment in hospitals in Poland:

  • Officially employed. All employees are insured — the employer pays contributions for them.
  • Family members of the insured. Suppose the father has a policy in the family. In that case, it is automatically issued to the child, spouse, and parents if they live together with him.
  • Children under 18, disabled children, or continuing education under 26.
  • Refugees.
  • Unemployed registered at the Employment Center.
  • School-age children, even if their parents are in Poland illegally.
  • Foreigners are legally residing in Poland.
  • Tourists – have the right to free medical treatment in Poland within the insurance framework.
  • Foreign citizens who are doing business in Poland.
  • Clergypersons. The insurance contribution, in this case, is made by a monastic or diocesan body.
  • People with insurance in other EU countries or the European Free Trade Association.

In addition, Poland provides various privileges, including free medical care, spa treatment, and employment conditions, to people with disabilities. However, the state pays only partially for the technical means of rehabilitation for a disabled person.

Medical tourism in Poland

Over the past years, the Polish government has been providing comprehensive support to the development of medical tourism in its country, creating new institutions and agencies engaged in quality control of services and support for the industry.

The Polish Association of Medical Tourism, for example, is created by the European Union and managed by the Polish Ministry of Economy. The activities of the association cover all issues related to the promotion of Polish medical tourism in the world. Hospitals in Poland, such as the Carolina Medical Center, the American Heart of Poland, the Mavic Medical Center, the University Clinical Center, and the Orchid Clinic, are among the best hospitals in Europe. They offer the most complex procedures.

Today, thanks to the high standards of medicine and developed infrastructure, medical tourism in Poland steadily grows yearly. The most popular medical tourism services and directions are cosmetic surgeries, dental services, eye surgery, joint replacement, cardiac surgery, infertility medical treatment in Poland, hydrotherapy, and physical rehabilitation.

The best hospitals in Poland are the Medicover Hospital, the Indexmedica Hospital, the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Clinic, the Mavic Medical Center, the American Heart of Poland, the Orchid Clinic, and the Karolina Medical Center Gdansk, which we mentioned earlier.
