Medical Tourism is where people travel outside of their community and even outside of their home country to receive medical care for one or more of the following reasons:
Novatio is the pioneer in Full-Circle OrthopaedicsTM, meaning that our treatment options address the whole person. Full range of both surgical and non-surgical treatment options are available with the goal of helping you live a more pain-free life.
In some countries, patients can remain on waiting lists for years for non life-saving services. At Novatio, waiting is minimal. Our goal is to get you back on your feet and living a pain-free life again. Also, in many cases the services a patient needs are not available within their community.
Environments can have an impact on the speed and quality of recovery from surgical procedures. Whether you visit us in St. George or Las Vegas, you’ll be able to recover in a beautiful setting.
The facilities we work with offer bundled payment options that can be up to 1/3 of the cost of using a traditional hospital.
Most importantly, it is our priority to put together a plan that best fits your needs and wants.
Your body and pain is personal, so we fully believe that your care should be that way too. We want our patients to feel safe and confident. As a new patient, here are some things you can expect from us:
You will be seen by one of our providers promptly. Waiting is minimal.
Your first visit is scheduled for one hour to give you the time you need with your doctor.
Our surgeons check in with you over the phone the night before any scheduled procedure.
After a hip or knee replacement, you can walk up to 400 feet the same day.
Most often, you’ll be able to recover from home within 24 hours of a hip or knee replacement.
The majority of our joint replacement patients utilize less than two weeks of pain medication after surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should I bring someone with me?
Absolutely. 86% of global tourists bring a companion to reduce the stress of undergoing any kind of medical treatment. Studies show that anxiety can make pain worse, as well as make it harder to cope with the pain. Traveling with a companion reduces anxiety and provides peace of mind.
How long do I have to stay?
Patients are typically free to travel soon after surgery. However, we work with each patient to determine their post-op recovery plan based on health history, type of procedure, and method of transportation.
So whether you take one day or two weeks to explore all that St. George or Las Vegas has to offer, we assure you that quality care and your recovery are our top priority!
What’s the follow up procedure?
Follow-up is decided after discussion with each patient, but can include options such as video calls, phone calls, and transfer of care to a physician in your local area. In addition, our services in acupuncture are proven methods to reduce stress and quicken recovery.
What are the payment options?
Multiple payment options are available, including cash, credit card, insurance, and financing through CarePay.
