Medical Tourism in INDIA
With the ease of travel in today’s increasingly globalized world, more and more people are traveling for medical treatment. Each individual has a different motivation for seeking medical treatment abroad, but most people travel for one of two reasons: to save money, or to have access to treatment that isn’t available in their home country.
India is an increasingly popular destination for medical travelers. There are rapid growth of medical tourism in India. Its affordable and high quality of care, strict ethical standards and quick access to specialists make it an attractive destination for medical care. Medical care in India also has an excellent cost-to-quality ratio. India is not the cheapest medical destination worldwide, but the cost of medical care in India is significantly lower than in many other industrialized nations.
Background: the India healthcare system
India has an excellent international reputation for the quality of its healthcare system. The standard of care in Indian hospitals is extremely high. But what makes it so great? For one, highly trained doctors, nurses and other medical specialists. Medical professionals in India must go through extensive training before they are allowed to practice medicine, and doctors and surgeons are expected to continually educate themselves to stay abreast of the latest developments in their field.
The medical technology and treatment possibilities available in India are also state-of-the-art. Nearly all India hospitals are equipped with high-tech imaging technology such as 3D ultrasound and MRI, and many specialized clinics have state-of-the-art equipment to provide patients with the latest treatments. Surgical robots, heart catheters and targeted radiation therapies for cancer patients are just some of the pieces of technology that can be found in Indian clinics.
Patients and treatments
While there are no exact statistics on the number of people who visit India for medical/surgical treatments YOGA or health and wellness reasons, estimates vary from 200 thousands per year. Experts are certain that the number of medical tourists is rapidly growing.The current medical tourism industry in India is estimated to be worth $3 billion and is expected to double in the next 3 years.
Many other countries offer a range of treatments and surgical procedures to the medical tourist. But, in many countries the number of specialties is narrower than one could expect in India . Some countries only specialize in cosmetic or heart surgery or joint implant surgery and dental care. India can offer excellent care in all those specialties, but has also developed a sterling reputation in other areas. These include (but are not limited to):
- Treatment for cancer
- Fertility treatment
- Cardiology and cardiac surgery
- Orthopedic surgery
- Neurology and neurosurgery
- Obesity treatment
- Treatment of kidney ailments
- Alternative treatment for many maladies
India is also a top destination for diagnostic work ups as well as comprehensive health and wellness check-ups.
India is home to top tier Spas, Health and Wellness Resorts, Yoga Centers and Rehabilitation Centers – many of which have been offering treatment and cures for hundreds of years. So, it should be no surprise that of the millions of tourists that visit India each year, many of them will visit the therapeutic baths, health spas and wellness resorts that offer a full range of treatments.
Appointments for many medical treatments and surgical procedures in India can often be made quickly and easily and do not involve long waiting periods. Our most of the medical staff and doctors are bilingual and speak English.
