and the medical tourism industry :
At the dawn of the 21st century, the crimson rays are smiling happily on
India. The new millennium has many economic opportunities for us, one of them
being medical tourism. For the uninitiated medical tourism refers to a tourist
visiting another country with the dual purpose of getting medical treatment,
which is more affordable in the other country and enjoying a vacation as well.
India with advanced medical services paired with her exotic natural bounties
has become a heaven for medical tourists. For us, the statistics show hope for
an annual income of up to 1 billion dollars and 40 million job opportunities
from this avenue.
A question that pops up: What does a medical tourist want? The panorama of medical
requirements that India can cater to is very vast starting from purely cosmetic
treatments like cosmetic surgeries such as breast augmentation to urgent and
critical procedures like joint replacement, heart surgery etc.
So what makes India one of the medical tourism destinations?
Primarily, it is the low cost of treatment and medicines in India. There is
no compromise on the quality of medical services, which can confidently compete,
with that of even the most developed nations. India has achieved universally
acclaimed standards in complex and significant procedures such as cosmetic surgery,
dentistry, joint care and heart surgery. And all this at 1/10th of the price
compared to developed nations.
bone marrow transplant procedure that takes $250,000 in the U.S. can be performed
at $25,000 in India. A heart surgery that costs 50,000 $ in USA can be availed
of at 10,000$ in hospitals with the most advanced facilities. A regular medical
check up, blood tests, X-rays and ultrasounds, which make one poorer by 574$
in London rounds is available at 84$ in most Indian diagnostic centers.
More over the overhead costs like traveling, lodging, sightseeing, food and
shopping are very affordable in India. The situation is further complimented
by favorable currency exchange rates for medical tourists and Indias reputation
A well-repeated argument posed against the concept of medical tourism in India
is that in the world community, India is not traditionally regarded as a health
conscious country. The stagnating drains and open latrines convey a rather dismal
message about our health care system. Moreover, not everyone can have fun in
the backwaters of Kerala after a major cardiac surgery or relax on the beaches
of Goa after a hip replacement.
Nevertheless, the statistics vote for India and the practical experiences vouch
for Indian medical services. No argument can deny the 95000 international patients
treated at the Apollo group of hospitals. With a 30%, annual growth in Indias
health industry India is certainly all set to become a global health destination.
