As has been stated many times on this forum by knowledgeable posters who have lived/worked/travelled in Cuba for many years the Island is NOT a medical tourism destination like many other developing countries.

Not even the most fervent supporter of the Revolution would advise anyone visiting Cuba for anything other than routine medical work unless you have a recommendation from a trusted source regarding a specific doctor working out of a specific facility.

There are many developing country destinations where top-notch medical care in available for prices much, MUCH less than in North America... Cuba is NOT on that list.

There are a few dentists who provide perfectly adequate care for routine work, but beyond that the same rule applies... outside of a very specific situation you'd be nuts to travel to Cuba for any complicated medical procedure, including dental work.

Cancer patients have been waiting two months for radiation treatment because of a broken part and you are interested in a tummy tuck? Take your chances and hope for the best, but don't be surprised if you have problems.

If Terry says you'd be Nuts to go to Cuba for complicated medical care, I'd go with that.

For heaven's sake, we pay big $ for travel insurance that will fly us home, right away, for medical care.

Are they even doing elective surgeries on foreigners in Holguin? I thought the only place for that was in Cira Garcia in Habana?

Proper diet and excercise is a better answer. Kids are starving all over the world (including Canada) and someone would actually spend thousands on a cosmetic surgery procedure after spending thousands on overeating?? Shame.
