Similarly, a bone marrow transplant which costs about $2,50,000 in the US can be done at $69,200 in India. The staggering differences in prices for various quality treatments lure tourists to avail them.

International standards– While being cost effective, the facilities are internationally accredited and state-of-the-art. There are 30 JCI accredited hospitals providing quality treatment to international & domestic patients.

Expertise– The trust established by the highly qualified physicians and surgeons having years of experience, among the international and domestic tourists seeking treatments in India is another reason why India is a preferred destination.

No Waiting– Unlike in certain nations, where certain procedures have months and even years of waiting lines, treatments in India pass up the waiting lists and patients can seek treatment without having to wait.

Attractive Travel Packages– Tailor-made or personalized services can assist medical travelers to combine treatment and travel so they can also engage in the culture and beauty of the place.

Holistic Care & Alternative Medicine– With alternative therapies like ayurveda, yoga and meditation in practice since several thousands of years, medical tourists can opt for such treatments and experience a holistic recovery.
