University Hospitals in Germany
German hospitals invest in technology and many of the best treatments in the world are found in the USA, Germany and Japan.
The USA is expensive for medical treatments and Japan is not an easy place for many international patients to visit, whilst Germany is more accessible.
Why university hospitals in Germany?
University hospitals are where most of the latest treatments and medical technologies are to be found and there is the greatest concentration of expertise.
In Germany only university hospitals are allowed to perform transplant operations.
Whilst some hospitals or departments are busy, there is generally good capacity so international patients are not kept waiting to obtain treatment.
In Germany this is not allowed. By law all prices in public hospitals are fixed, so you pay the same as a local patient.
Compared to many countries, German hospitals are much more likely to employ their doctors directly, rather than them visiting from outside. This makes for more consistency and helps us to identify centres of excellence for you.

It can be difficult for an outsider to know which hospitals are both particularly good and likely to repond to international patients for a specific area of treatment, but this is where MHL can assist.

One patient reports
'I had to push for an Xray (demanded by Germans) to check healing is OK. Now I'm trying to find out whether it really is healing, having had the Xray.
Mrs L was injured in China and was treated there and then in Germany for a broken wrist. She then had follow-up checks at home. She writes:
Bone consultant here had never heard of the magnesium reabsorbable screws, which I now have fitted!
I'm so glad I went to the hospital in Germany. If I had not, I could look forward to a life of trouble for that wrist!
In China and Germany Xray was available within seconds to view. In local hospital here they still use photographic plates (seems like I'm in a time warp and gone back 100 years) and it won't be ready for 7 to 10 days!
In most countries it is quite common for international patients to be charged higher prices than local patients. This is partly because they ask more questions and may check several hospitals, so they use up experts' time but are less likely to actually come for treatment.
