Balaban added: Medical tourism in Turkey began to attract Europeans, mostly from France, Germany, and Britain, in the previous year due to reasonable prices, good results, and high technology, where tourism is combined with treatment.

The field of Infertility Treatment has developed in Turkey due to modern technologies and methods used in treatment, and we receive inquiries about it from most Arab and European countries. One of the methods currently used is to take a biopsy with a very small percentage of sperm for fertilization, and it is examined via a microscope to reach 65% positive results.

This percentage confirms positive results, which means, there is an opportunity to obtain IVF, and solutions can be reached without hormones.

About the language barrier, it has been surpassed by talking with patients directly, in addition to the presence of interpreters to avoid embarrassment.

The Turkish Minister of Health Fahrettin Koca told Anadolu that the medical tourism sector has achieved remarkable and great development during the last 18 years, similar to a revolution, that is why the Turkish government wants Medical Tourism in Turkey to be registered as a trademark in the coming years.
