Qdays Medical Holidays has long offered quality focused medical tourism services to the traveling tourist. In 2012, together with local authorities, Qdays Medical Holidays has pro-actively started to promote the Brasov as a medical tourism destination. Read on to find out how this is done, and why we believe there is no better medical tourism destination in Romania than Brasov.

Whenever you enquire with Qdays Medical Holidays about any sort of plastic surgery abroad, we will kindly ask you to send us one front and two side pictures of the areas which will undergo surgery. Read more about the reasons why we recommend sending pictures before plastic surgery abroad.
Once you receive a quote from one of the operating surgeons at our partner clinic and decide to book the surgery in Romania, the doctor will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for surgery, including guidelines on eating and drinking, and taking or avoiding certain vitamins and medications. Some surgeons suggest that their patients go on a diet before the operation. It is highly recommended that you stop smoking one month prior to the surgery.
You will have an appointment with the operating surgeon at least 24 hours before the surgery.
In my previous post I suggested some interesting activities for July. This time, I’ve got a really appealing proposal for the rest of the summer months.
If you’ve missed the medieval fortresses’ tournament in July and the beginning of August, you still have a chance to enjoy similar events in August and September, as events are scheduled in Bran, Fagaras, Rasnov and Brasov.
Bran 14 – 15 August
Fagaras 19 – 22 August
Brasov 4 – 5 September
Rasnov – 18 – 19 September
Calling the weather outside summer is an overstatement. It snowed in the mountain area just yesterday and a minimum of 6 degrees during the night is not exactly nice and warm. Still, there’s hope: the weather forecast for July and August resembles much more the hot season, with sunny days, light showers and overall warm temperatures. And with the weather straightening out, it’s time to set aside the movie packs and go outside and have some fun.
There are plenty activities scheduled for this summer in Brasov and the surrounding area, so make your pick: be it an art gallery, outdoor event or a visit to an important landmark.
On 24th of February Romanians celebrate Dragobete, a traditional Romanian holiday. It’s the day of the lovers, very similar to Valentine’s Day. Old beliefs say that whoever takes part and celebrates love on Dragobete will have a healthy and prosperous year.
On this festive occasion, we’re feeling romantic as well, and we’d like to share this with you.
Here’s what we offer: if you book medical treatment for you or your partner with Qdays until the 15th of March*, we’re throwing in a basket full of authentic Romanian goodies: fine wine, cheese, fruits and chocolate! Now, isn’t that a great way to pamper your partner?
Make sure to mention the coupon code – “DRAGOBETE” – when you make the booking!
*for holidays booked for the period 1st of April – 30th June.
It’s that time of the year again, when the Christmas spirit in Brasov comes to life. For all of you that can’t make it out until Christmas – here’s a taste of this amazing city during the Holiday Season.
They’ve really done an outstanding job this year decorating the old quarter of Brasov. As cold as it was yesterday, the crowds packed the streets to witness the lighting of the Christmas tree in Piata Sfatului, as well as the street decorations all around the Old Quarter.
With the winter season almost here and many of us dreaming of endless ski slopes covered with perfect powder snow, I’ve decided to focus this blog entry on an interesting initiative in Poiana Brasov, one of the best known skiing resorts in Romania. What does this have to do with medical tourism? Your traveling partner can take advantage of its location, in the proximity of Brasov – it’s a lovely 15 minutes drive from Brasov to the resort.
The local authorities of Brasov prepare a grand design for Poiana Brasov. This would be translated into up to 60% larger slopes and an artificial lake on top of Mount Postavaru destined to supply water for the 46 snow cannons to be installed. Besides covering the slopes in quality snow, the technology to be implemented would mean slopes will be open, in some cases until the month of May.
In total, there would be 13 kilometers of rehabilitated slopes and six kilometers of extended slopes.
Working in the medical travel field, I get to meet many people who are interested in medical procedures, but cosmetic surgery is the one that strikes me every time. People with great faces and great bodies still want to undertake surgery for that next step forward. I do understand that everybody wants to look great, and therefore feel great, but an article really caught my eye recently. Don’t get me wrong, I could not offer a service I don’t believe in, but what I do feel is that there needs to be a “need”, be it psychological or physical, not just a “want” in order to have plastic surgery.
According to naturalnews.com, 160,000 U.S. children had cosmetic surgery in 2008. Amongst the most sought after procedures we find breast augmentation, liposuction and Botox injection. This is when I decided to do some research on the subject. There are forums loaded with teenagers interested in cosmetic surgery and there’s no surprise that breast augmentation and liposuction were the most debated subjects. Moreover, parents feel that if they can have these surgery procedures, why wouldn’t their children have them?
