*Figures are indicative only, actual costs are shared by hospitals after evaluating patient’s medical condition.

The cost of treatment in India is much lower, starting from 1/3rd to 1/10th of the cost of such procedures in western countries such as the United States, Canada, UK etc. For example, in the US, for a Bone Marrow Transplant you will have to pay around $400,000; but in India, it will cost just about $30,000. Similarly, Angioplasty procedure in US would cost about $57000, but in India it will cost just about $3300; Heart Bypass in US is $144,000 and India it will cost $5200.

The table also shows that India offers a definite cost advantage vis-a-vis other medical tourist destinations like Korea, Thailand, Malaysia etc.

The Indian government has introduced medical visa at low cost for foreign nationals across the world seeking specialty medical treatment in India for extended periods. The visa process has also been fairly simplified for most nations.

Travel, food and accommodation are also fairly economical in India compared to western nations.

It should be however noted clearly that lower cost does not mean any compromise in quality. India provides the most advanced treatments in the world at reasonable costs. Whether you talk about Robotic surgeries, Cyberknife surgeries or Haploidentical Bone Marrow Transplants – Indian doctors are doing procedures that are most cutting-edge and most recent in medical science.
