Posted on February 3, 2009. Filed under: Net Spy | Tags: , , |

The year 2009, also known as the “Visit India Year” corresponds to India’s provision of explore options for medical tourist who have gone to the country primarily for affordable plastic surgery and other kinds of medical care. These added activities are composed of adventure tourism, spa tourism and rural tourism which will be added on the regular affordable plastic surgery packages before.The cost for these packages will be borne by the government and hopefully will attract more medical tourists to India. The “Visit India 2009” initiative will allow patients to experience many frills that will turn their medical trip into a unique holiday in India.

The global research firm of Deloitte confirmed that in 2008, plastic surgrey in India received 4.5 million medical tourist. As the number of patients opting for affordable plastic surgery goes higher, the Indian medical tourism industry will reach $2.3 billion in revenue by 2012. The global recession will also have a positive impact since more patients will probably get plastic surgery in India, mainly from Western coutries that seek high standard intervention. Plastic surgery cost will sky rocket in their own country and as a result, plastic surgery in India will be a very alternative.

Dr. Naresh Trehan, one of the most experience and renowned cardio surgeon in India explains that “Medicities provide the highest end of healthcare in India.” He also stressed out that plastic surgery in India should have a separate counter for medical tourists to give foreign patients special privileges regarding the exchange rates.

As a medical tourism destination, India has many advantages like most of the top rank countries. First is the affordable plastic surgery cost, which runs about 1/10th of the U.S. price. The rate of plastic surgery cost in India makes the country even more cost effective with regards to its healthcare quality. Next is the establishment of international standard hospitals like Max Healthcare, Fortis, Wockhardt etc. And third is government’s ‘Open Skies’ policy, India, for the last few years, has been better connected to the world than it ever was before. It is no wonder then that analysts confidently predict a growth of 30 percent in the number of medical tourists that visited India in 2009. This figure, they add, is likely to increase to 40 percent in subsequent years.

These factors will open India to a more stabilized medical tourism destination and into a hopefull dream to be the best in the field of elective surgery.
