India has been steadily growing as a preferred destination for medical services in the last few years. Quality treatment, low costs, availability of modern medical technologies and English-speaking doctors have turned this into a $3 billion industry (2015), which is growing at a rate of 15-20 per cent per year; this is nearly 18% of the worldwide medical tourism market. It is estimated that nearly five hundred thousand people travel to India every year for surgeries or treatments such as heart bypass, knee/hip replacement, coronary artery bypass, transplants, oncology treatments, infertility treatments, cosmetic surgery, ophthalmology, and even life-saving procedures. Even the biggest surgeries are performed at a tenth or fifth of the cost compared to any USA or UK hospital. There is hardly any waiting time (unless in case of a transplant).

Medical tourism companies are in all major Indian cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Bangalore. These companies facilitate the procedures for getting in patients and getting them treated at the best hospitals in the country. They have tie-ups with good hospitals and doctors for that particular condition, get the best packages, help with the visa and other documentation and take care of the accommodation and other aspects for the patient’s family as well. They ensure that the treatment is prompt and efficient and also provide post-operative care. Those with language and communication barriers are taken special care of to make them feel at home and secure.

Some of the ways in which a medical tourism company will help you get the best medical care in India are:

  • Getting you in touch with the best doctors from your own country. You can discuss with the doctors about the possible surgery, its complications and risks, required pre- and post-operation treatment, and medications before taking a decision to travel.

  • You can also check out the quotes from different companies and opt for the best one.

  • The companies will help you get a VISA to India and also other required documents such as fitness certificates to travel.

  • They take care of accommodation, food, money exchange, travel arrangement such as airport pickup and drop off, cabs, tickets, and other things that you will need for your stay in India.

  • They get you the best packages from hospitals which are much cheaper compared to what the hospitals will charge you for a direct consult.

  • Most companies provide 24X7 support so that you have a hassle-free stay in the country.

  • Some companies also provide private chefs, a translator or coordinator, dedicated nursing staff, private rooms and local tours.

  • Diagnostic support such as sample collection from home, reports sent to email/phone, and consultation with doctor by phone so that the patient need not be moved.
