ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. & SÃO PAULO & BARCELONA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sphera International, a multi-national company that works with medical travel facilitators in the U.S. and abroad to simplify the experience for patients by providing a network of world-renown facilities and affordable, quality treatment in Brazil and Spain, announces the opening of its offices in Brazil (Sao Paulo), Spain (Barcelona) and the United States (New Jersey). Both countries emerge as desirable locations for medical travelers because of their longstanding traditions for delivering exceptional medical care, exemplary health care facilities, and English-speaking physicians.

“Building on its robust economy, established reputation for safe, first-world accommodations, and anticipated activities related to the 2014 FIFA World Cup and International Summer Olympics, Brazil is a destination of choice for medical travelers seeking high quality, affordable medical care,” says Alex Lifschitz, CEO of Sphera International, the only company of its kind to maintain offices and executives in the U.S. to directly assist American companies and the public regarding medical travel in the business-to-business and direct-to-consumer sectors. “Spain has been a top medical tourism destination for European, Arab, and African countries for years. Medical travelers can choose from JCI-accredited hospitals in Barcelona, Madrid, and Marbella. As one of the main ports of entrance to Europe, Barcelona is known for its high-quality medical facilities, which are frequently utilized by the Spanish Royal Family.”

Organized to provide healthcare consulting, administrative services, and medical travel guidance, Sphera serves as the gateway for individuals who want to enjoy beauty, cultural diversity, and comfort while benefiting from top-notch medical facilities -- many of which are accredited by Joint Commission International. These Centers of Excellence offer cosmetic/plastic surgery, dentistry, as well as complex specialized surgeries including cardiac, bariatric (weight-loss), ophthalmologic, and orthopedic.

“Medical practices and care excellence in Brazil and Spain are held in high regard by clinicians and patients worldwide,” says Lifschitz. “Now, Americans can access this level of care at rates well below those offered in North America – resulting in substantial savings for individuals, employers, and health plans.”
