You Ask. We Answer.
What is Medical Tourism? What kinds of medical treatments do tourists generally obtain in India?
Medical Tourism involves traveling to another country for receiving medical treatment in that country. India provides a range of various medical options to tourists. Usually, medical tourists get elective procedures such as reconstructive surgeries, hip and knee replacements, dental treatments, infertility treatments as well as other medical options that are often not covered by their insurance policy, or have a lengthy waiting period in their place of residence.
Why should I choose India over other destinations?
India has some of the most highly qualified and experienced physicians in the world. With a cultural emphasis on education, most of these physicians are specialists in their fields, enabling them to become experts in their respective medical specialties. India is also famous for Ayurvedic and herbal treatments. You also have a chance to visit popular destinations like the Taj Mahal, the beaches of Goa, the backwaters of Kerala, and experience the rich heritage of Rajasthan to name a few.

Cost and Payment
How are the cost savings comparable to the expenses in my country?
Cost savings can be quite generous and are a crucial factor for most tourists who decide to obtain their treatment in India. However, costs for each patient differ depending on their need and requirements. Generally, an elective medical treatment such as a knee replacement costs around $40,000 in the US, whereas, obtaining the same treatment using similar quality parts in India will cost 40 – 60% less than the costs in the US, including a stay at the hospital, all procedural and medical costs, and transportation to and from India. Costs compared to the UK, are also lower by about 40 – 60%. This is mainly due to favourable currency exchange rates.
Do these cost savings mean lower medical standards in India?
How are payments made?
You will be required to make payment as per the respective hospital’s policy. This normally involves paying a deposit before undergoing any diagnostic tests or procedures. A final bill will be presented to you prior to discharge from the hospital. Usually you will pay direct to hospital.
