Demand for qualified medics in Latvia has always been high, which is why medical education is also at a high level. Professional knowledge has significantly aided the development of medicine in Latvia. Nowadays, Latvia’s clinics are high level treatment institutions, where quality diagnostic and treatment services are ensured by a combination of the professional knowledge of our doctors and state-of-the-art equipment, cutting edge technology and high safety and quality standards. Here, services are received by patients from both Latvia and abroad.
The compact size of Riga, landscaped environment and outstanding education opportunities are attractive not only to foreign patients, but also to budding doctors from various countries around the world, who are doing their medical studies in Latvia.
The healthcare available in Latvia corresponds to the highest level offered by the world’s leading clinics. The clinics use certified apparatus corresponding to international quality standards. Operations are performed using materials and equipment made by the world’s leading manufacturers. Alongside European specialists, Latvian doctors conduct scientific studies in various branches of medicine in order to improve disease diagnostics and therapy.
Latvia’s clinics typically offer patients a sensible pricing policy with no hidden charges. Service prices are competitive within the Baltic Sea region and lower than in Western European and Scandinavian countries, enabling patients to make cost savings of 50-70%. See a price comparison table here.
EU Directive 2011/24/EU on the application of patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare stipulates that patients are entitled to choose a service provider in any EU country. In accordance with the said Directive, the patient will be compensated with the sum that his or her country of residence would have paid to doctors within its own system for the same or equivalent service. Since regulations in various EU member states may differ, we recommend studying all compensation terms and conditions beforehand. More detailed information can be found here.
The date of consultations and operations can usually be arranged within the next two weeks, sometimes earlier. Examinations are available with no waiting lists in accordance with a carefully planned schedule. The equipment and apparatus required for diagnostics and treatment are available under the roof, meaning that both examinations and required treatment can be performed in the shortest possible space of time.
The education of Latvia’s specialists corresponds to the highest international standards and the country’s top medical practitioners regularly continue their further education, thus mastering the latest healthcare practices. Doctors continually augment their qualifications with foreign training and in experience exchange programmes (in the USA, United Kingdom, Austria, Denmark, Sweden and other countries). Our doctors are member of Europe’s most important industry associations. Latvia’s foremost specialists conduct international model operations, as well as giving lectures and addressing international conferences.
Latvia’s clinics are continually introducing cutting edge technologies that are widely acclaimed within the international medical community. Healthcare institutions maintain close working relationships with leading medical equipment manufacturers and their equipment is regularly upgraded so that corresponds to the latest industry standards. Diagnostics are performed using state-of-the-art equipment, resulting in examinations that are as fast, efficient and as precise as possible. In healthcare, the latest apparatus makes it possible to perform less invasive manipulations, which means a short recovery period and reduces the risk of complications. Latvia’s clinics offer innovative treatment methods, which guarantee the most effective results possible. Some of the methods are unique in the Baltics or Northern Europe.
The infrastructure, environment and work organisation at Latvia’s clinics correspond to Europe’s best patient care standards. The country’s state-of-the-art healthcare institutions conduct sterilised procedures according to the highest EU quality standards. These clinics have received ISO quality certificates.
