There was a time when major surgeries were considered out of reach for the common man. All that is past now as over the years India has created its very own health experts and many working on the Indian soil are the most sought after experts among the galaxy of world class doctors.
The expertise here is well recognised by the doctors and researchers of world renowned medical journals that have set standards of its own. Works of many Indians have started appearing on these pages for some time now.
About 15 years back perhaps things started changing for India as India stood tall in the field of clinical treatment and many in the West started looking up to India for the kind of experience and vastness of subject that the various experts had started handling.
People abroad had also started seeing many Indian doctors in their hospitals and it made them realise the kind of doctors that India is generating. Faced with the huge expense of medical treatment in Western countries, the people there started realising how they can get similar treatment at a lower cost and what is more it would also be a chance to see what India is all about. Is it still a place of snake charmers?
The invitation to explore India certainly holds out a big appeal. The roots of medical tourism could well have its origin here.
Our fourth generation Operation theatres are at par with the bests in the world.
There are more than 120 ICU beds for various surgical and medical specialties.
The fast pace of modern life leaves little time to keep a check on health.
