Minimally Invasive Surgery Programs
In the last decade, the techniques of Minimally Invasive Surgery have taken huge leaps. These procedures involve conducting surgeries through small openings to remove organs and perform several surgical procedures, avoiding large wounds and possible scaring. These techniques have the following advantages:
- The patient may be discharged early
- Social life of the patient may restart a few days after surgery.
- Patients have fewer complications than with traditional techniques.
Cuba has multidisciplinary medical teams composed of endoscopy surgeons, specialized radiologists, experienced anaesthesiologists, highly trained nursing staff and technicians with expertise and high quality instruments and medical technologies.

Starting August 1, 2015, please be advised that CubaHeal will request a $100.00 USD initial deposit for the submission of medical profiles to the Cuban Medical Authorities for assessment. This is due to the fact that it has come to our attention that a number of applicants who have been granted approval for treatment in Cuba were only interested in receiving free consultation and diagnosis. In our opinion this is an unfair conduct since:
1. The Cuban Medical Authorities have taken the time to review and assess the patient’s condition, develop an appropriate program and reserve a spot for the patient to be treated in, and
2. The allocated spot is reserved to the specific patient for an assigned number of days creating a longer waiting period for other patients with a possibility of more urgent need for treatment.
Please be aware of the following facts:
1- Should the Cuban Medical Authorities approve a treatment and should a patient agree on such treatment, the initial deposit will be deducted from the total cost of the program.
2- Should the Cuban Medical Authorities refuse a treatment for a patient due to the extent of his/ her condition, CubaHeal will refund the full amount less the wiring fees.
3- Should a patient reject a treatment program proposed by the Cuban Medical Authorities, CubaHeal reserves the right to retain the deposit and treat it as a consultation fee.
