                       The quality of care and the tradition of welcoming in France
                       are well known. For the first time, French Healthcare is
                       presented in a booklet for patients around the world.

                       France is a land of medical innovation. Our teams of doctors,
                       surgeons and researchers, trained at the highest level, are
                       used to world firsts in many therapeutic areas. In order
                       to help international patients benefit from their expertise,
                       French hospitals set new standards for people who choose to
                       travel for care.

                       One of the priorities of the association French Healthcare
                       (https://frenchhealthcare.fr), which brings together
                       institutions and health professionals wishing to promote
                       French know-how abroad, is to propose a framework
                       guaranteeing the satisfaction of patients and the quality of
                       care throughout their stay.

                       The objectives of this approach include easier access to
                       «French» care, obtaining visas for health reasons, optimal
                       reception in institutions for patients and their families,
                       customized services, and specially trained staff.

                       Patients who do not have the health care provision in their
                       country of residence will now be able to find in France the
                       best treatments and medical care, in terms of efficiency,
                       cost and quality of reception. Thousand and one treasures of
                       French cities and territories also await them.

     Interventional cardiology comprises coronary cardiology (dilated cardiomyopathy), structural cardiology (non-
     surgical treatment of heart valves) and electrophysiology (implantation of pacemakers and defibrillators and
     ablation of cardiac arrhythmias). French teams are pioneers in the field of coronary medicine – the first coronary
     stent in the world was implanted in France – and maintain a high level of technical expertise with extremely
     experienced specialists. These specialists are able to offer very complex non-surgical techniques to patients
     that can lead to shorter hospitalization times and faster recovery. Care is always thoroughly planned out and
     tailored to every patient.

      France has a long tradition of excellence in the fields of neurology and neurosurgery. Numerous
      therapeutic innovations have been launched and developed in France, such as deep brain stimulation to
      treat Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders, epilepsy surgery and treatments for vascular
      malformations and brain tumours. For the most part, the teams work in teaching hospitals with the most
      modern of resources at their disposal. Their extensive expertise means they are able to safely treat both
      adult and young patients.
