Till recently unreported, Poland’s ‘golden age’ becomes more and more observable and appreciated by the international society and tourists flooding polish airports, cities, mountains and also medical facilities. In a quite surprising short span of time, from 2015 till now, Poland has become a recognizable tourist and recreation destination. The number of tourists visiting Poland shot up in 2017, with an increase of 9.6% in two years to 18.3 million. The Polish booming economy quickly rose from 30th place to 22nd this year and has become the 7th largest economy in the EU with a total GDP of €524 billion. It is still on the rise consequently changing the country and its market, making it easier for foreigners to come, sightsee and participate in this positive change of atmosphere in the country, especially that it’s a very English-friendly environment classified as number 13th of 88 countries worldwide and number 11th in Europe according to EF English Proficiency Index (EF EPI) – the world’s largest ranking of countries by adult English skills – with a high proficiency EF EPI score of 62,45 (average 10th position in the last decade). This means that you have over 60% chance of talking to someone in the English language when looking for guidance or information on the streets of Polish cities.
The country’s greater than the average in EU domestic consumer market, covering of 61% of national GDP, as well as the over 5,3% real wage increase over the last year alone, Family 500+ – an important government programme introduced in 2016 – have added about 2 to 3% to disposable income per year. Additionally, the fact of leaving young people under 26 untaxed, rise in pensions, and a general tax cut by 1%, which is currently being introduced by the government driving the growth of wages and GDP, is as we speak in effect producing wealth and diminishing poverty in Poland. This, in turn, means a bigger demand for higher quality services and products in the country, which is fortunate for all the prospective foreign tourists that look for services outside their own countries, but still are afraid of possible unmet standards or unskilled specialists. Recent statistics of inbound movement of regular and medical tourists seem to support this sudden ‘golden age’ of Poland, since 15,8 million – and rising – tourists come to Poland annually. Why is it so? Poland now becomes more and more well-known destination for the perfect holiday owing to its beauty in terms of medieval architecture, nature – which is overabundant and still mostly well-preserved and clean – good air condition, long history, strong cultural bonds to the land and traditions and unique regional cuisine. However, Polish Tourism Agency explains such an increase in influx and interest by safety reasons. It seems that more and more Europeans and Americans agree with PTA’s explanation that: “Poland is an open, friendly, hospitable and safe country. The last aspect is now particularly significant for tourists, regardless of their place of origin.” Most of the tourists come from Germany, Ukraine, Russia and Great Britain. Nationalities that are on the rise in arrivals to Poland are Chinese (54.5%), Israeli (49.7%) and South Korean (18.2%) – less dynamically inclined to come to Poland but still on rise are Indian, Russian and Australian tourists. Other factors encouraging tourists to decide on Poland as a place of treatment destination are the local prices and access to new technologies in the country, which ensure a high standard of services offered by Polish clinics. Joanna Szyman from the Upper Finance consulting company estimates that cities that combine several features have the greatest chance to benefit from these trends: they have a base of high-class medical facilities, provide convenient communication, above all by air, and offer unique tourist attractions.”
For years now Poland was known as a strong high education centre in Europe ranked by the study of Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OCED) as the 5th in Europe and 11th in the world for its educational system with well-educated graduates, often continuing their careers or PhD studies abroad at academic centres in UK and USA, and most of Polish youth having university diplomas. The fact that so many patients from abroad decide on treatments in Poland seems to prove the educational and practical credentials of Polish medical specialists. Few years ago Poland was ranked the 5th European medical tourism destination on the Medical Tourism Index provided for 2016-2017 International Healthcare Research Center (IHRC), however the tendency is still on rise along with the number of incoming medical tourists. According to consulting companies and press media the Polish medical travel market may be worth even 100 mln USD currently.
Medical tourism market in Poland is analysed by various institutions and agencies that refer to different methods of estimation, thus obtaining precise data on medical tourism in Poland is complicated. First press mentions of numbers of foreign patients visiting Poland in 2009-2010 based on undocumented sources cited numbers oscillating between 800,000 and even 1 million of such tourists. However, we know the factual data about people coming for health purposes to and using spa facilities in Poland. The Central Statistical Office of Poland (GUS) claims 386,000 tourists have visited our country in 2015 with or without a declared health-related goal. The data from 2017 shows that Poland in 2016 accepted about 466 thousands of foreigners, which is an increase of as much as 22% compared to the previous year, however, this data can be very confusing at first glance: the undeclared non-residents visiting Poland for one day should be distinguished from these numbers. Additionally, those undergoing medical and cosmetic procedures in Polish clinics should be treated as a different category of tourists from those using wellness and spa services available in Poland. Thus, according to the CSO statistics, the total number of people that have visited Poland for treatment in 2015 was 93,000, in the corresponding study in 2016 it was already 155,000, in 2017 the number increased to 172,000, while in the following 2018 year about 244,000 non-residents arrived for health purposes. As you can see, these studies do not take into account SPA patients, one-day patients or uninsured Poles coming back to Poland looking for treatment in our clinics and hospitals. Nevertheless, this number is noticeably increasing systematically confirming the attractiveness of Polish medical base and Polish medical and recreation offer. If you add the one-day medical tourists to it, you will receive about 400,000 patients from abroad in the last year. With an average number of 15.8 million tourists visiting Poland, less than half a million can be included in the category of health tourists, however, this upward trend and the numbers themselves are still impressive and testify to the great trust of potential customers in the quality of services offered in Poland.
According to the International Society of Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), breast augmentation, liposuction, breast lifting, abdominoplasty and eyelid surgery were the most often demanded plastic surgeries internationally in 2018. On the other hand, foreign patients are most interested in Polish dental services, because dental patients constitute the most numerous group of medical tourists coming to Poland. Collected data and expert interviews allowed the Institute of Research and Development of Medical Tourism to estimate that in 2016 Poland was visited by 75,000 dental patients. No wonder, dentistal services market in Poland is estimated at PLN 9.6 billion with a perspective of 12.5 billion in 2020, which means that the demand for dental services in Poland is growing, and small dental clinics are consolidating under strong brands similarly to those in Western Europe in order to marketing and provide the highest quality services to their clients. The main factors affecting such a large number of foreign dental patients are the clinics’ attractive prices and their experience in providing services to foreign patients, as well as the need for private financing of some dental procedures in Western European countries. The second group of foreign guests that was the largest in 2016 were the plastic surgery patients, of whom as many as 22,000 came to Poland in 2016. Already in 2015-2016 the aesthetic medicine market recorded a 10-12% increase, and is currently estimated at 200 million and is still growing.
The medical tourism market comprises of three main areas:
The greatest popularity in recent years among medical tourists has enjoyed health resort and spa sector and the least medical sector. However at present, we can observe a reverse in this tendency: medical area, especially the field of dentistry and plastic surgery, develops faster and is becoming a fundamental part of medical tourism in Poland. This is confirmed by the president of the Polish Association of Medical Tourism, Artur Gosk, who claims that the medical area is recording double-digit growth on the medical tourism market every year and is already playing a significant role in it. In 2015 alone, the medical tourism market in Poland reached almost 1.5 billion PLN worth. The vast majority of patients come from Great Britain, Scandinavian countries (Sweden, Norway, Denmark) and Germany. Their main incentive to travel is the price, which in those countries can cost up to 50% more than in Poland for the same high-quality treatment.
According to the data, medical tourism in Poland is becoming a highly developed sector of services and from year to year the interest in Polish clinics grows. The most often visited Polish cities are Warsaw, Kraków, Wrocław and Gdańsk. This is primarily due to a very well-developed network of air connections, high reputation of clinics and tourist attractions at these locations. Clinic Hunter has created a map of medical tourism in Poland by selecting clinics active in the industry according to set criteria.
Ultimately we decided to present the most active clinics on the medical tourism market in Poland. Clinics of course, usually do not provide official data on how many patients from abroad they serve yearly, and it is unknown for certain what percentage of revenue is the result of treatment of foreign guests. We decided to show the most active, and therefore the ones that strive the most to target prospective foreign clients.
Methodology of selection – How did we pick the most active clinics? Those included in our list have been selected based on:
We focused on several medical specialties: dentistry, plastic surgery, bariatrics, orthopedics, and hair transplants. We know that there are clinics in Poland that actively recruit patients with medical conditions from other specializations, for example, infertility, gynecology or neurosurgery, but due to the fact that Clinic Hunter does not actively provide services in these specializations, we decided to omit such clinics in our ranking.
Factors such as the size of the clinic or the country of origin of the patients were not taken into account.
Below are the standing out on the medical tourism market in Poland clinics which, in our and our patients’ opinion, deserve special recognition. The clinics’ list is organized according to the city key:
This is a leading direction among Scandinavians, but also gaining popularity in countries such as Germany and Great Britain.

At the DENS Specialist Dental Center in Wrocław implantation procedures have been performed for 15 years and almost two thousand implants have been implanted here. Dental implants are the most modern and most comfortable solution that contemporary dentistry offers to patients with missing teeth. From year to year, the number of people who despite large teeth deficiencies can enjoy a beautiful smile is growing. Implants are an investment in yourself – your well-being and health, and thus the comfort of life. The experience and knowledge of our specialists, as well as cooperation with the best laboratories, guarantee the durability of the work performed. Dental implants, i.e. artificial tooth roots, are most often made of titanium, which is a metal tolerated by the human body and undergoes a quick integration process – permanent fusion with the bone. It does not cause allergic reactions and discomfort. We also use ceramic – zirconium implants. Zirconia from which the artificial root is made is fully biocompatible, i.e. ideal for the human body. Zirconium imitates the natural bone to the highest degree and is very resistant to mechanical damage. The implantation procedure is preceded by a thorough diagnosis of the patient’s health and oral health, based on computed tomography. The three-dimensional image of the jaw and jawbones represents the density, height, and width of the bones, guaranteeing precise planning and implantation. Center has the most modern apparatus for digital x-ray diagnostics – Vatech iPax 3D Green, which minimizes the dose and time of radiation. Implants supplement individual missing teeth. In the case of extensive deficiencies and edentulous, sometimes two to four implants are enough to rebuild all missing lower or upper teeth. Treatments are completely painless. Another way to replace missing teeth is autotransplantation, i.e. the displacement of the tooth or its bundle to another place of the dental arch.
