Medical tourism is a growing sector in India. India’s medical tourism sector is expected to experience an annual growth rate of 30%, making it a Rs. 9,500-crore industry by 2015.[1]Estimates of the value of medical tourism to India go as high as $2 billion a year by 2012.[2] As medical treatment costs in the developed world balloon - with the United States leading the way - more and more Westerners are finding the prospect of international travel for medical care increasingly appealing. An estimated 150,000 of these travel to India for low-priced healthcare procedures every year.[3]
Advantages for medical tourists include reduced costs, the availability of latest medical technologies and a growing compliance on international quality standards, as well as the fact that foreigners are less likely to face a language barriers in India. The Indian government is taking steps to address infrastructure issues that hinder the country's growth in medical tourism.

Most estimates claim treatment costs in India start at around a tenth of the price of comparable treatment in America or Britain.[4][5] The most popular treatments sought in India by medical tourists are alternative medicine, bone-marrow transplant, cardiac bypass, eye surgery and hip replacement. India is known in particular for heart surgery, eye, dental and other areas of advanced medicine.

Also, world-class medical infrastructure, and the latest medical technology are now available in India, and hospitals now offer treatments and surgical techniques similar to those carried out at the best hospitals in the West.

India, as a destination for medical tourism is not new, though with recent revival of ancient forms of treatment has revived its lost glory. For many tourists India offers a much cheaper option for medical treatment (General or Surgical) without compromising on quality, which is important when traveling away from home.

There are now numerous Hospitals in India that have been accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI), the international arm of the organization that accredits American hospitals – proof that select Indian Healthcare is as safe and has as high clinical outcomes of those hospitals in the West.

Similarly, a knee replacement with six days of physical therapy costs about one-quarter ($6,900- 7,300 USD) of what it would in the United States ($25,000-30,000 USD).
