Patient Care – Pre-Op and Post-Op

Questions we receive from abroad range from the safety in Colombia, travel arrangements, why the prices are so low, doctor qualifications and what the patient pre and post surgery care is like.

At MEDtour Colombia we bring that standard of excellence that you would receive in the USA or Europe and take it to the next level by ensuring our clients are prepared before their procedure or surgery as well as taking great care to give them the most comfortable recovery possible while here in Colombia.

Typically in the United States, a surgery candidate would go home after having a procedure to avoid paying the extra fees to recover in a care facility usually recommended by the surgeon. This means you would have friends or family take care of you while you can’t move, shower, get up to grab a bite to eat or cook as well as take care of everyday responsibilities.

Depending on your budget or if you have the luxury of hiring a post-op recovery nurse, you could have a trained professional handle those things for you. The extra cost could send your final price soaring depending on the procedure.
