I have heard about people traveling more and more often to other countries to have surgical procedures because they cost so much less than they do in this country. Sometimes they are for cosmetic procedures but there are also more serious surgeries, like heart or back procedures.
It seems worrisome to not be in your own home country when you are having surgery but clearly there are a lot of people who do it and are fine. Is this a good option for someone who needs a procedure and can't afford it or is uninsured? How would a person even start researching such an option?
