As with most medical interventions there are a number of tests that may be required to ensure safe undertaking of the procedure in mind. We will be happy to carry out all necessary tests here in Budapest but we would advise you to perform them locally. Your GP or private practitioner can help you arrange such tests. This has a number of benefits. Firstly your surgeon would know in advance of your travel if it is safe to carry out the procedure. Secondly if there are any concerns it would give you and your GP time to address those concerns ahead of your travel and reschedule your booking accordingly.
