Medical Tourism In India

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ashlynn @ 8:26 am

Medical tourism is a great way to combine your dream vacation with a much needed medical or dental treatment. It can be generally defined as provision of cost effective private medical care in collaboration with the tourism industry for patients needing surgical and other forms of specialized treatment.

Medical Tourism In India

The medical tourism industry in India offers world class medical facilities, comparable with any other country in the world. India has some of the best international hospitals and doctors. Medical tourists are an expanding group and one of the leading in the field is India.

Other highly attractive benefits include:

  • the opportunity for patients to save money;
  • no waiting lists;
  • and a great way to see the world.

Affordable Medical Procedures

Medical tourism in India offers low-cost treatments for heart surgery, joint replacement, gastroenterology, ophthalmology, transplants, cosmetic surgery, and dental care.

Located in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, is the Krishna Heart Institure and Specialty Clinic. It is one of India’s leading medical facilities and offers quality medical care for its international patients at affordable prices.

Benefits Of The Medical Tourist

As a medical tourist you’re getting the best of both worlds, not only do you receive affordable, quality healthcare you also get the chance of a lifetime to see the world. Before or after your medical procedure you can tour the world famous India Gate, Red Fort, Taj Mahal Rajasthan, or swim at the serene beaches in Goa, or hike the mountains of Himalaya. The total price of an overseas treatment with airfare, hotel accommodation and even a few days of vacation is often far less than just the procedure cost back home.

India’s Growing Medical Tourism Industry

The medical tourism industry in India is growing up to 30% annually (as per research). India is quickly becoming a “global health destination.” A newspaper article recently in “India Abroad”, showed the potential for medical tourism, when it outlined a deal where India could earn more than $1 billion annually and create 40 million new jobs by sub-contracting work from the British National Health Service. The deal would have broad appeal. It would slash waiting times dramatically in the UK and create huge savings in time and money for patients. The potential for medical tourism in India from the UK and US looks set for major growth as India becomes a preferred destination for medical tourists from these countries.

Benefits of Medical Tourism in India

  • Costs of comparable medical procedures in countries like India are far cheaper than western countries.
  • The choice is entirely up to you as to where and when you would like your medical treatment performed.
  • Hospitals in India sometimes provide help with visas, travel arrangements and accommodations.
  • One of the main advantages of medical tourism in India is that the English language is freely spoken and understood in India.
  • Even after adding the costs of airfare and accommodation the final price is far cheaper than what similar treatments cost in countries like the United States. In many western countries because of a shortage of doctors and hospital beds patients have no choice but to wait for medical operations. Patients, who opt for medical treatments aboard in countries like India, need not wait for treatments.
