Your Digital Destination for Health Tourism
No two patients are alike — from their medical needs, to their emotional demands and comfort levels, everyone has different priorities and requests when it comes to handling their healthcare. For some, it’s getting an appointment quickly, for others it’s getting a treatment done that doesn’t break the bank, and for others it’s feeling in control of their process by having all the facts before walking into the clinic.

How can I find out how much it costs?
You can easily find out how much your specific treatment costs by clicking on our no obligation 'Get A Free Quote' button, which also shows you how big your savings are with our unique 'savings calculation' element.
Why does it cost so much less to have surgery and cosmetic treatments abroad?
In countries abroad offering surgery and cosmetic treatments living costs are typically much lower. This includes not just labor costs, including doctors', anaesthetists', nursing and other associated medical staff, but other overheads, such as premises rent, utilities, laboratory materials, insurance and administration expenses. These other 'hidden' expenses can amount to a sizeable chunk on top of your medical bill, and so any reduction in these costs will result in considerable savings to you.
What about the quality of care? Is it as good as at home?
Yes - Colombia has world-class facilities with excellent reputations, many of which are established, recognized centers for international patients. Booking with Discover Colombia ensures that some of the precautions you should take when booking medical care abroad have already been done for you.
We work closely with our clinics and perform background checks on the qualifications and expertise of clinicians. We have people on the ground who undertake onsite inspections, and we also gather real patient testimonials. All these elements taken together give us a reasonably good picture as to the quality of our clinics and doctors, so that our patients can book with confidence and be realistically assured as to the outcomes of their treatment.
Are the surgeons highly qualified and experienced?
Yes - Discover Colombia has partnered with leading specialists and surgeons who are highly-qualified and experienced in the fields of surgery, including cosmetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery.
How long will I need to stay?
This really depends on what procedures you have. Some cosmetic procedures, such as Botox or fillers and medical checkups can be carried out in a matter of minutes, and there is virtually no downtime so you won't have to stay longer than 5 days. Surgery is a different matter. Although many surgical treatments can be carried out as an out-patient these days, you will usually have to stay around for a week or so to have stitches removed. Other big surgical procedures may necessitate you staying for longer. We can advise you, but the final decision rests with your surgeon.
Is it safe to travel alone for surgery?
Yes it is, we provide a virtual or in-person concierge that guides you throughout the process. But you will probably feel much more at ease if you travel with somebody who can support and assist you. Some of our patients opt to have surgery together - the shared experience helps the recovery time to pass quicker, and supporting and taking care of someone else can help you take your mind off your own discomfort.
How and when do I pay for my treatment?
You will pay for your scheduled treatment(s) and travel needs before your trip in US Dollars via credit card or bank transfers. Eventual additional tests or treatments if needed will be paid in Colombia. Some treatments are possible with a payment plan, please ask the appointed Customer Care Team after filling in the quote request form.
Do the doctors speak English?
Yes - Our doctors are used to treating international patients.
Can I speak with a doctor directly?
Yes, of course we offer the virtual appointment option. Just speak to our Customer Care Team who will arrange it or just click on the virtual appointment button on the top of the website.
Do you arrange flights and accommodation as well?
Yes, we arrange all your travel needs, from flights, to transfers, appointments, and all types of tours and activities including wellness, cultural, relaxation, adventure and shopping.
Can I claim for my treatment on medical insurance?
In some cases you may be able to, but you will need to check with your insurance provider to see if they cover for 'out-of-network' care, which may allow you to reclaim your expenses when you return home
