The reason why medical tourism in Chennai is growing fast is that there are many hospitals with state of the art facilities providing medical and surgical treatments along with neuro surgery to their patients. People from all over the world come to Chennai to get medical treatment. This includes people from underdeveloped countries where good medical treatment is not available and also people from advanced countries where procedures like neuro surgery are extremely expensive.
Many astute travel agencies have realized this niche and have started providing facilities for medical tourism. These agencies take care of not only the appointments for medical tests and the dates for surgery; they also provide facilities for care givers. Sometimes the patients and caregivers have to stay in hotels till the time that they are admitted in the hospital and the travel agencies take care of that aspect also. As mentioned above one has to look out for uncouth elements, but with the help of these medical tourism agencies that fear is alleviated because they tie up only with good hospitals with a good reputation.
