Is cost the most important factor I should consider when thinking about medical tourism?

Cost is not the most important factor to consider. Other factors to think about before you travel include communication levels, if you visit a country where you do not speak the language fluently; quality of care following the procedure; availability of good quality medications; and the safety of blood transfusions, if necessary.
