India is emerging as a favorite destination for medical tourism with technological advancements and highly skilled doctors


Medical tourism in India reached over $9 billion in 2021 and is expected to increase further with advancements in technology.

New Delhi: India has always been a favorite destination for travelers, but the growth of globalization has also led to the rise of medical tourism. As India celebrates its 75th Independence Day, it is evident that the country has come a long way since 1947 when the state reserves did not even have enough to care for its citizens.
This massive development of the health sector is nothing less than a matter of pride for all Indians. According to statistics, India’s medical tourism industry is the most sought after due to the best quality of treatment available at the lowest cost. Compared to 2015, when the value of Indian medical tourism was estimated at $3 billion, it has reached over $9 billion in 2021.

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.

Many hospitals have also made inroads in the Middle East and Africa, while setting up offices in these countries to market emerging Indian healthcare technology.

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.

Top Attractions for Foreign Medical Tourists in India

As medical tourism is growing by leaps and bounds, the city of Chennai has been dubbed India’s healthcare capital with over 45% of foreign medical tourists arriving every year. Some of the main reasons for these staggering numbers are:
  • Cost: India provides the best medical treatment at the lowest cost without jeopardizing anyone’s health and life. According to figures, the cost of cancer treatment in India is about one tenth of that in the United States.
  • Waiting time: In developed countries, the admission and operation procedures for patients even on the DI list are very slow, while in India there is no such waiting time.
  • Processing quality: No other country in the world can beat the quality of Indian doctors and the aftercare they provide.
  • Language: Although it is a country of diverse cultures and languages, English is spoken everywhere, so tourists do not encounter any language barriers, which makes things easier.
