Overview

Medical tourism is movement of patients in search of skillful and affordable medical care to countries having a highly developed healthcare system. Also known as Healthcare Travel, this industry comprises of two distinct groups of people, one traveling from highly developed countries in search of affordable treatments to and the others traveling from poorly developed and developing countries in view of absent infrastructure.

Services typically sought by travelers include elective procedures as well as complex specialized surgeries such as joint replacement (knee / hip), cardiac surgery, dental surgery, and cosmetic surgeries. Individuals with rare genetic disorders may travel to another country where treatment of these conditions is better understood. However, virtually every type of health care, including psychiatry, alternative treatments, convalescent care, rehabilitation and physiotherapy are available.

India is growing as a preferred destination for medical treatments with an increasing number of patients visiting various Indian hospitals for the required treatments. Advantages for medical treatments in India include reduced costs, availability of latest medical technologies, and growing compliance on international quality standards. With a large number of foreign students studying in India, language interpretation too does not come as a hindrance for international patients.

Why India ?

India has been growing as a favored destination for medical tourists worldwide. Indian healthcare offers specialties in various medical disciplines and has highly experienced medical practitioners having trained in UK and USA. Medical treatments are carried out in state-of-the-art facilities that have been accredited to conform to international standards.

The typical current scenario of the international medicine, where the cost of medical treatment is skyrocketing in the United States and Europe, India's healthcare service comes as a relief to patients from all over the globe. India certainly and confidently boasts of a medical care that supersedes in quality and affordability.

The disparity is proof of the cost-effective nature of Indian medical treatment. This leaves scope for combining a holiday along with the medical treatment for many holiday seekers. Amazingly, you still spend only lesser than what you would have, in order to undergo the same medical treatment in some of the western countries.

Equally proficient doctors and nurses, offering round the clock service to the patients, complement our healthcare facilities here. With great hospitality and service being our practice, a comfortable stay in fully equipped and luxurious rooms is then assured. The biggest advantage is perhaps the fact that the faculties of the hospitals are English speaking, facilitating proper communication and interaction. Hence, it erased any alien feeling for foreign patients, who are given the opportunity to relate with an identical nationality.

Indian healthcare serves you at every point of your journey; from the point where you access our healthcare services, arrive at our airport till you departure from India. The simple touch points of service provided helps you to plan your treatment in India with much ease.
