Medical tourism has slowly taken hold in India, with the momentum gained over the past two and a half decades when private hospitals opened up to the latest medical technologies and emerging treatments and reached out to neighboring countries to help their patients, who came mainly from Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh.
Why do people choose India?
Advanced medical facilities, highly skilled and specialized doctors and low cost treatments have made India a favorite of patients across the globe. Apart from curing most diseases, India also promotes yoga and Ayurveda for wellness which has always grabbed the attention of the world.

The care and treatment provided here is world-class, along with state-of-the-art medical services.
