Travel Restrictions Have Been Lifted, Will Medical Tourism Continue to Thrive

 

Why is a nurse being featured on the Say Yes to Travel podcast? Well, Kelly Greytok, RN concierge nurse specializing in plastic surgery recovery, started out as a golf course coordinator straight out of college and then became a nurse. Greytok explained to Host Sarah Dandashy that she combined her love for travel with nursing by helping plastic surgery patients recover in hotels. She proudly maintains the motto of “exceeding the expectations of every guest every time.”

However, as one can imagine, the pandemic made Greytok’s job a little tricky with traveling and elective plastic surgeries nearly coming to a halt. Alternatively, plastic surgeons pivoted and adapted quickly, like hosting Zoom consultation sessions, and Greytok is ecstatic to see that change lasting.

Just in the U.S. this year alone, surgeons performed 15.6M cosmetic and almost 6M reconstructive surgeries, even with COVID-19 regulations. Greytok has noticed an increase in surgeries above the neck and believes it’s largely due to looking at oneself so frequently on Zoom meetings.

Greytok added that patients desire a seamless experience and the most qualified doctors since there is a hefty price tag associated with plastic surgery.

“More than ever, especially since the pandemic, people want safety, they want comfort, and they want connection,” explained Greytok. “And so I’m finding that instead of being at a house with all the other people and the crossover of nurses, they want to be in a private, luxurious hotel room… they want the privacy, and they want the great experience on their own terms.”
