In turn, at times it also implies the movement of healthcare providers to different regions of the world to offer most advanced healthcare services to the patients. It is a relatively recent concept that has resulted from the globalization of healthcare industry. While considering medical tourism market, the name of India mounts to the top as one of the first countries to realize the potential of medical tourism. In the present scenario, India is one of the leading destinations for the global medical tourists. At present, India is having a share of more than 20% of the medical tourist arrivals in Asia. The country has witnessed a 30% growth rate in the arrival of medical tourists in India from the year 2009 to 2011. The prime reason behind India’s growth as one of the most sought after medical tourist destinations is its international standard treatments in the most affordable prices.
