FAQ

Medical tourism is simply the process of traveling abroad to a specific destination to obtain certain medical procedures. Canadians and Europeans have been traveling outside their regions for years to obtain medical procedures due the long waiting periods associated with socialized medicine. Now they have an opportunity to seek top quality procedures, where they can recover in anonymity and luxury at more affordable rates.
People consider seeking medical care abroad for a number of reasons. An increasing number of people are having major medical procedures done abroad due to the staggering difference in cost. Many people in the United States find themselves without insurance or with insurance that has limited coverage or pre-existing conditions. When faced with the need to have cardiac, orthopedic or other major surgeries, many people have traveled abroad for care in order to save money. For example, one can travel abroad for heart bypass surgery in a prestigious medical center with a three-week recovery for under $20,000. The total cost for the medical procedure alone in the United States would routinely be in excess of $100,000.

Costs of the medical procedures in India are approximately 1/5th to 1/10th of costs in the west. This cost differential enables you the opportunity to have a vacation in an exotic country, recover in a 4 to 5 star resort in complete anonymity, and then return home having spent less than the procedure alone in your country. There is no waiting time for any surgical procedures.
