Organizing and receiving medical treatment in a foreign country can be difficult and generate anxiety.  There are multiple issues : Administrative and logistical to be managed.  Distance and language barriers increase the feeling of isolation.

Our department commits to provide a recommendation including :

  • A letter from the neurosurgeon confirming the care agreement and treatment recommendations. This documents will be necessary to receive international medical treatment, including visa request.


Our administration will submit a Medical care costs quote.

The acceptance of the quote by the patient leads to a mandatory prepayment of the care hospital group finances board (a postpayment is allowed for some specific organizations which benefit from some pre-agreements). When the payment is certified an hospitalization date will be communicated to the patient giving him the possibility to get a medical visa at the French consulate, if necessary.

Prior the final confirmation of treatment and surgery, a consultation with your neurosurgeon will be organized, either in advance or at least 5 days before the scheduled surgery.
