Ahmedabad is an upcoming city on the scene, and discerning foreigners find the potential of the place on the medical value treatment map. It has some of the top hospitals with excellent facilities.

Negligible wait time is the advantage of Bangalore, which also is home to some of the best hospitals in the country and very experienced and talented professionals.

Kochi, too, has some the best hospitals and brilliant professionals along with ample scope for tourism in the sylvan environs of God’s Own Country. The Ayurveda care it offers is another advantage.

India’s key advantage continues to be the price factor and the quality professionals to deliver care. The packaging with Ayurveda by some of the hospitals has come as an added attraction.
