About Direct Healthcare International Limited - Torhout

Specailising in Obesity Surgery, (Gastric Bypass), Orthopaedic (hip, knee, spine, hand, wrist, ankle), Gynaecology, ENT, General Surgery and Internal Medicin, Direct Healthcare International was formed to meet a demand for low cost surgery using hospitals, primarily in Belgium, where the surgical standards are second to none. With this aim in mind we sought to use surgeons that we knew by reputation, CV history, and surgical history. These surgeons in order to qualify to be accepted by Direct Healthcare International Limited need to demonstrate a proven track record and in addition carry out a minimum of 250 surgeries a year in their discipline. This we felt sure were criteria that would find excellent experienced tried and tested surgeon and indeed have proved so.
