MOSCOW, December 25. /TASS/. More and more foreigners are coming to Russia for medical services. The structure for seeking medical help has changed and now it consists of high-tech kinds of treatment, not just dental and eye care, Russian Healthcare Minister Veronika Skvortsova told reporters on Monday.
"Over 60,000 during the first half of 2017 were chalked up. The flow is not merely from the CIS; the geography is rather wide. If it was dental care earlier, now it covers all high-tech kinds of care. That is replacement arthroplasty - German pensioners come to us. Now they receive this assistance from us via German insurers," the minister said.
Stent angioplasty, clinical cardiac electrophysiology, corrective surgery and IVF services are among kinds of medical care sought by foreigners in Russian centers, Skvortsova said.
