Why Is the Cost of a Knee Replacement Lower in Turkey?

For those considering a knee replacement in Turkey, cost can become a point of confusion since it is generally drastically lower than in other countries. For context, every treatment costs less in Turkey; knee replacement surgery is just one of many treatments that people save on. The main reasons are as follows:

  • Lower labour and living costs: in contrast to various other European countries, wages in Turkey are generally lower, which influences the living costs. This means that treatments are not as costly, which is particularly helpful for foreign patients.

  • Plenty of medical staff: the medical travel market is large in Turkey, as is the turnover of medical school graduates. That's why there are a lot of well-trained doctors there. This naturally ensures plenty of treatment options, and hospitals can choose the most qualified staff.

  • Special packages: personalised packages are always offered to international patients, which include accommodation and drivers in addition to the procedure itself. These bundled offers are often cheaper than booking everything separately yourself.
