How will my trip be organised?

You can see all the process here !

What happens if I decide to cancel my procedure?

You have the right to change your mind and to decide to cancel or put off your stay. In this case, you have up to 15 days in relation to your arrival date, to modify or cancel without charge.

After this time, 100% of the paid amounts will be retained due to late cancellation.

How is the post-operative follow-up organized?

After your procedure and during the recovery period in France, your physician may wish to see you again once or twice in post-operative consultations. During this time, a nurse will provide necessary post operative care, e.g. change of dressings, medication, etc. directly at your hotel.

When you return home, your surgeon will remain in contact with you through France Surgery’s secure e-health platform. If necessary, he may even contact your general practitioner to make sure your recovery is going fine.

One online control will take place at 1 months after surgery. You will receive an online scoring on your secure medical space on www.france-surgery.com that you will have to fill-in. This will allows your French medical team to optimize your follow-up and give you some additional advices if needed.

Should the recovery be unsatisfactory, the surgeon will indicate to you the procedure to follow, and will consider a possible return for another procedure. That’s why we highly recommend you to contract a medical travel insurance with our partner.

Can my medical costs be covered?

It all depends on the health system of your country. If you are from a country in the European Union, after your treatment stay, you will be given an invoice in English.

When you return home, this invoice must be sent to the health care received abroad form that has been duly filled in – this form is available from your health insurance fund – which you send to your insurance company to obtain reimbursement for the health care.
