India as a Medical Tourism DestinationIndia is considered the leading country promoting medical tourism-and now it is moving into a new area of “medical outsourcing,” where subcontractors provide services to the overburdened medical care systems in western countries. Among modern India’s achievements is its really significant contribution to global healthcare delivery. It is now highly regarded worldwide as a quality provider of medical talent and healthcare delivery.

The combination of high quality, world-class, affordable surgery costs and Healthcare Services is attracting a regular stream of foreign patients to India in 2003; as many as 150,000 medical tourists came to India. The figure is growing at 20% year on year. According to a CII-McKinsey Study, Medical Tourism alone can contribute the additional US $2.2 billion in revenue to Indian Hospitals by 2012.

India offers several super speciality hospitals dedicated to providing cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery, orthopaedic surgery (including knee and hip replacement surgery), Neurosurgery, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Paediatrics, Reproductive Medicine, Urology and Cosmetic treatments. With a gigantic boost in medical tourism, India has seen a massive upsurge in private sector hospitals that are devoted to overseas patients.
