It is not scary at all just need to do a lil' bit more research. We don't talk here about third world countries but Europe. You do not have to assume anything- standards in Poland are same as here and possibility that something goes wrong are same as well. However I wonder how many doctors here are really good and honest to admit a mistake? They will always look for some excuse.
Have you ever wonder why you are not staying at the clinic after surgery? Why you have to deal with pain and doubts by yourself, especially in first crucial days of healing?
Answer is so simple, no matter what they told you- if you insist you will have to pay extra for that (average cost of day stay at the hospital is about $1500).
Finding good and willing surgeon to perform a revision surgery is another issue. Trust me I know, more than 25% patients went abroad not due to economical reason, simply couldn't find help here in U.S.
Anyway I have to agree with Stephanie it is better to have your doc here than a plane ride away and i wish that Americans could get what they desire here not abroad. But that it is just a life!
