Addressing the protocols and permissions required to collaborate with agencies, Usta emphasized their prompt preparations and reiterated the expectation of more patients from Georgia, Azerbaijan, Iran, and Gulf states. Furthermore, Dr. Celal TekinbaĊŸ, the chief physician at Karadeniz Technical University’s (KTU) Farabi Hospital, emphasized the significant impact and high-quality care provided to the more than 4,000 patients treated under the health tourism program at their hospital during the past year.

Demonstrating their commitment to quality, ongoing studies are being conducted to enhance the health system’s standards. Moreover, Trabzon’s health tourism facilities boast a multilingual staff proficient in English, Russian, Georgian, and Arabic. These dedicated professionals support international patients throughout their journey, from diagnosis to treatment and safe return to their respective countries. Agreements have also been established with authorized companies specializing in international health tourism, further ensuring comprehensive care and services.

Trabzon’s rapid emergence as a hub for health tourism demonstrates its commitment to providing exceptional medical care and a positive experience for both local and international patients, solidifying its reputation as a premier destination for health-related services in Turkey.
