    1. 1. MEDICAL TOURISM What is medical tourism? The practice of travelling abroad to obtain medical and health care services is called medical tourism. Why would you travel out of the country for medical or health care? The main four reason to why people do medical tourism are Affordability , accessibility, availability and lastly Quality. Cost is a major factor. Medical and dental procedures often cost half as much (or less) outside the U.S. as inside the U.S. Even when you factor in the cost of travel and a hotel stay, it can be cheaper to have procedures done out of the country than to have them done at home. Medical tourism used to be practiced primarily by those who did not have health insurance.. Advantages:- Much cheaper to get medical treatment outside of the country.In some cases Disadvantages:- Companies may be charging you for unapproved treatment  MEXICO(Cost 25% less) Weight loss Dental Surgery  HUNGARY DENTIST Cancer Surgery  INDIA( Upto 45% less ) Cardiac surgery Orthopaedic surgery  BRAZIL (40-50% less) Cosmetic surgery Organ Transplant  ANTIGUA ADDICTION AND RECOVERY 12 step addiction and recovry program  TURKEY(Upto 50% less) Vision  AUSTRALIA Cardio  BARBODOAS (Upto 50% less) Fertility/ivf THAILAND  EVERYTHING (Upto 30% less) Neuro Orthopedic surgeries The cost percentages are as compared to US.  SINGAPORE(Upto 40% less) CANCER Ranked 6 IN HEALTH CARE WORLD WDE
