Medical tourism refers to travelling across international borders with the purpose of availing medical treatment of some form. This treatment may include a wide array of medical services, however, the most frequently availed medical treatments include cancer treatment, orthopedic treatment, neurological disease treatment, fertility treatment, and others. The surge in medical costs associated in developed countries, has forced individuals to look for affordable alternatives. The affordable alternatives embark patients on a worldwide journey, supplementing the medical tourism market. According to Patients Beyond Borders, currently, more than 30 countries on four continents cater to the international health travels, with more than eight million patients visiting hospitals and clinics each year in countries other than their own. Such escalating figures will undoubtedly drive the global medical tourism market to new heights in the near future.
