What is Medical Tourism?

Medical tourism, also known as health tourism or medical travel, refers to the practice of traveling to a different country or region to receive medical treatment or undergo medical procedures. It involves combining healthcare services with travel and tourism experiences.

People opt for medical tourism for various reasons, including seeking specialized treatments, accessing advanced medical technology, receiving more affordable healthcare options, reducing waiting times, or simply combining medical procedures with a vacation.

Medical tourism can encompass a wide range of medical services, such as elective surgeries, cosmetic and plastic surgery, dental treatments, fertility treatments, organ transplants, cardiac procedures, wellness and rehabilitation programs, and more.
