India has tens of thousands of skilled physicians and nurse practitioners. Over the last two decades, the economic boom in India has led to the building of medical facilities & infrastructure that rival the very best that western medical care that the west has to offer. Many of the physicians that practice in these hospitals and clinics have returned (to India) from the U.S. and Europe, leaving behind successful practices.
The cost of treatment in India is considered to be the lowest in Asia, much lower than Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore and Hong Kong. Apart from the treatments being more cost effective, we can boast of the five star medical facilities, highly qualified doctors and most importantly there are no language problems. Furthermore, India also serves as a highly sought after tourist destination which is an added incentive.
