Medical Tourism in India

India is a perfect destination for medical tourism. India excels in providing quality and cheap health care services to overseas tourists. The field has such lucrative potential that it can become a $2.3 billion business by 2012, states a study by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). India’s medical tourism sector is expected to experience an annual growth rate of 30%. Most estimates claim treatment costs in India start at around a tenth of the price of comparable treatment in western countries. The most popular treatments sought in India by medical tourists are alternative medicine, bone-marrow transplant, cardiac bypass surgery, eye surgery and orthopaedic surgery. India is known in particular for heart surgery, hip resurfacing and other areas of advanced medicine.
