In the “Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” Maggie Smith was a medical tourist to India going for a reasonable, safe hip replacement. That was the first time I had heard of such an idea. Then 60 Minutes ran a piece on trips to Asia, including India, for expensive medical procedures including orthopedic replacements, face lifts, and even a liver replacement.
There may be one of my readers or a family member who is in need of one of these operations. I honestly can’t think of any reason not to go for it and would definitely consider it, myself.. . . . . . state of the world medical procedures with excellent care, rehab and a vacation in India all for 1 /5 of the cost as in Britain?
I thought it encouraging and forward thinking that medical tourism is being encouraged and supported by the Indian government. They see this opportunity for their country as second only to the IT business in Bangalore!
This Is Incredible India!
