India is the Eternal Spring for Medical Tourism

July 22, 2022

India has got beautiful monuments, ancient history, sandy beaches and award-winning restaurants, but that is not only what is making India a magnet for attracting foreign tourists across the globe. They are also coming to India for Health Care.

Medical tourism, more broadly health and wellness tourism is booming in India because of excellent quality of Healthcare, economical cost vs developed countries, good healthcare infrastructure and of course preferred tourist destination. Medical tourists come to India for health care treatments like Oncology, Cosmetic Surgery, Cardiology, Organ Transplant, surrogacy and IVF and at the same time, visit the local attractions of that country.

India is in the second spot after Thailand amongst the Global medical tourism corridors viz. Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Mexico and Costa Rica. It is projected that the volume of medical tourists to grow to $7–8 billion by 2020.

India receives around 1.27 million tourists from countries such as the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada, as well as visitors from neighbouring countries such as Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and China.

Major corporations such as Max, Fortis, Wockhardt, and Apollo Hospitals have made significant investments in setting up modern hospitals and tourism-related services to cater to the new brand of visitors from abroad.

Tourists travel to India for economic and commercial reasons. Choosing English-speaking India for some operations clearly has economic benefits. In the United States, for example, a heart bypass treatment without insurance costs over $140,000. However, the identical treatment costs roughly $7,000 or Rs 3 lakh at one of India's best medical centres. When compared to the United States, procedures such as hip and knee replacement, face lifts, and gastric bypass are significantly more economical in India, including travel and lodging costs.

Furthermore, most insurance companies in Western nations do not cover these cosmetic operations. India offers multiple top-tier open-heart surgeries and paediatric cardiac surgery centres that are equipped with cutting-edge technology comparable to that found in Western nations.

India is also acutely conscious of its visitors' quality views; many Indian facilities that cater to international tourists satisfy the criteria of US health standards such as the Food and Drug Administration and Joint Commission Accreditation for hospitals, in the hopes of combating this impression.

India also has a number of alternative medicine treatments that are popular among foreigners, including Ayurveda, Sidha, Unani, Yoga, Acupuncture, and Homeopathy. Such treatment options give India an advantage over competitors such as Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, and the United Arab Emirates.

With the increasing medical tourism traffic into India, more and more companies have specialized in the area of facilitating medical treatment for tourists and hand-holding them throughout the trip.
