India has become the hotspot for medical tourism and Chennai is one of the preferred destinations for people who come to India for health related problems. India has a skill pool of highly qualified medical professionals and the rates for complicated procedures like cardiac surgery, cancer treatment etc. are quite affordable for people from advanced countries. In western countries such treatments can actually make you go bankrupt if you don’t have the proper insurance. In fact at times even with insurance the amount that you would spend in these countries on any advanced treatment like cardiac surgery will be very high. On the other hand in India these medical procedures are available at a fraction of the cost.
Then again there are the underdeveloped countries which do not have such good medical facilities and people from these countries also come to India for treatment. This entire section of medical tourism is something that even the government of India is supporting with its rules and regulations. The Indian rules and regulations for medical tourism are quite consumer friendly and this makes it even more convenient for the patients from other countries to come here and get themselves treated.
