Specialists in orthopedic surgery, endodontics and reconstructive surgery made presentations during the event. The chief of Medical Tourism, Ms. Arlen Perez, was in attendance on behalf of the Hospital Metropolitano. WellMed will only provide services through accredited centers, according to the press release. Investors in Central America and countries throughout the world predict large successes for the endeavor. In addition to the healthcare industry in Nicaragua, the country itself is expected to see many lucrative returns from medical tourism. The boom in demand is expected to expand the services and health-related professions currently available in Nicaragua.The increase in patients traveling to the region will also encourage the immigration of well-educated physicians from around the world. Here, they will be able to provide valuable experience and advance the existing healthcare systems already in place.
