How is currently medical tourism contributing in the Greek economy considering the rapidly growing of visitors for hair transplantation in Greece?
Monica and Jerry from Indiana, USA, have chosen Greece for medical tourism. After the couple’s IVF(In Vitro Fertilization) treatment, Jerry underwent a hair transplant.
“The choice of Derma Hair Clinic, and skin surgeon Dr Karalexis, had already been taken from the United States when a friend of mine underwent a successful hair transplant by Dr. Karalexis in San Francisco before a few years. In this way we combined a recreational trip with medical therapy”.
At present the couple is in Santorini.
