Medical Tourism & Plastic Surgery

Medical tourism can be very risky, says Dr. Ricardo Castrellon,
Medical Director of the Burn Center at South Miami Hospital, because although the surgery goes well, the patient needs follow-up. In most of cases, patients don’t realize that.

He affirms he sees very scared patients when they’re going to his
office. “They have drains, they have concerns and they’re looking for someone who answers that”.

Patients try to do telemedicine with the physician in other country,
but it’s not possible, he says.
