Why India is preferred by overseas travelers to get their medical treatments and crucial surgeries done? In present scenario, medical tourism is fast catching the eye of overseas travelers owing to its cost effective nature. The broken state of health insurance and sky scrapping prices of medical treatments in the First World Countries is the major reason behind budding popularity of medical tourism in India. If statistics are anything to go by, patients can save 80% of their treatment cost in India. The low cost does not mean poor infrastructure and bad services. Most hospitals have international accreditations such as Joint Commission of India (JCI), Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP), Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP) and International Standard Organization (ISO).
The most popular treatments that medical tourists look for in India are cardiac bypass, hip replacement, eye surgery, multi-organ transplant, cosmetic surgeries, neurosurgery, dental implants, Orthopedic and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Indian hospitals have imported latest technological equipments from countries such as U.K., U.S.A, Germany and China among others. The availability of latest modern technology has opened doors for patients seeking complex treatments. Adding to this is the highly skilled doctors of India that have studied and trained in western countries. The medical staff in the hospitals is very competent and makes sure that patients complete their recuperation period properly.
