What do you do when your most trusted local doctor tells you, there is little they can do about your health situation? Your whole entire world curves in. That is the situation many people find themselves in today. And yet, with globalization, the world has become one big village. You can now access quality and affordable healthcare from anywhere in the world. Yes, medical treatment abroad is possible at affordable rates. There are now companies that help patients access these services. They are called Medical Tourism Facilitators and they do a good job and are reliable. One such company is called Anavara and they are only one contact away.
It is no doubt that seeking medical treatment abroad can seem a daunting prospect. For many it is unthinkable and unattainable. But with Medical tourism agencies available, all things are possible. These are companies that specialize in facilitating the treatment process, taking care of arrangements such as access to clinics and specialists, travel, visas, accommodation and, in some cases, sight-seeing and leisure activities.
But one may ask, what is medical tourism? Well, Google ‘Medical Tourism’ and before you blink, about 36,000,000 results would be lined up for perusal. In precisely 0.56 seconds. Not so far in the hoary past ‘medical tourism’ was not even deemed obscure terminology. Flip through statistics and you would find it gloating about the incredible increase in international India for treatment ranging from surgery for that obdurate artery to that falcon nose that needs to be sutured to look like the one that Cleopatra had.
Walk into any in Indian hospital and you might stumble upon countless faces that look different, most even whispering their pain in a language that not many locals understand. Packing for partying in Chennai is passé, tourists are opting for a ‘healthy holiday’ in an Indian spa. Look at the peripherals and each one would justify its reasons — from language interpreters to travel agents to cabs that are needed for pick up and drop offs, glib guides for that essential sightseeing after days in a room laden with the whiff of ether. So many professionals. So many hospitals. So many etceteras so that one ailing man from a foreign land can live happily ever after. All this without blowing a hole in his wallet. Put simply, cost-effective treatment.
Cost-effective? Well, that is the catch. Along with competency, of course. That is why India and other Asian destinations are fast becoming the favourite recuperating bed for thousands from across the world. The statistics of 2015 according to a CII – Grant Thornton white paper, cost is a major driver for nearly 80 per cent of medical tourists across the globe and shows that India’s medical tourism market is expected to more than double in size from USD 3 billion at present to around USD 8 billion by 2020. The majority of patients come from the US, Britain, Africa and South Asian countries. With so many footfalls and occupied beds, the coffers are spilling with crisp dollars too.
Now here is a list of benefits you can expect when using the services of a bona fide medical travel facilitator like Anavara. A reputable Medical Travel Facilitator:
