The modern world is witnessing the internationalisation of medical services. There is a tremendous growth in the flow of patients travelling beyond their own borders in pursuit of quality medical care. This phenomenon, called 'Medical Tourism' has grown for many reasons: high costs in the home country, excessive delays in accessing medical/surgical intervention, and to seek treatments that may be considered inadequate, unsafe or unavailable in the home country.
Several countries today offer world-class medical tourism services, and India has emerged as one of the top destinations - the preferred choice of medical tourists from around the world.
