Have you thought about leaving the country and finding a cheaper or better health service somewhere else in the world? If so, you are not alone. Many people through out the world are doing just that. Whether it’s to save money or to take advantage of the cutting edge science in the field, people are leaving their own countries and venturing out to others for surgeries and advice.
