Patients from UK, Germany, USA, Canada and Australia with serious orthopaedic ailments are being attracted to India. Patients are flocking to India for a number of reasons, the major one being affordable cost. In India, patients can get cost-efficient cure, paying a quarter or sometimes even the 10th of the cost that they are supposed to pay in their native countries. Other factors that play a key role in drawing foreign nationals to India include personalised care, high quality low cost treatment, skilled surgery, clean hospitals and the absence of hidden charges and intermediaries. The average cost of a medical treatment in India is almost 1/6th of that in developed countries.
Not only patients but travellers also are turning to India in search of
medical or health tours. They find it an excellent option to team up a
tropical vacation with elective orthopaedic surgery.
