Medical Tourism: India (Medical Tourism Guide Book 1)

Author: Steve Larson

Year published: 2013


When we consider medical tourism or are just seeking medical treatment abroad, we have to consider three main things. Is it safe? Is the treatment of a high standard? Does it save us a lot of money? So I would like to share my medical tourism experiences with you. It just might answer many of your important questions. I saved roughly $40,000 (USD) or about 25,200 (GBP) on my treatment. How about that? Pretty nice, I think… This book was written so it could be read and understood easily. It is a fun, hopefully entertaining, and most of all useful read. I intentionally wrote it this way because too many medical tourism books are overly complicated, leaving the reader more confused than when they started. And they can be very expensive! By reading my book, you may not have to buy another medical tourism book. Why? Because I provide you with information on resources that just might make it possible for you to make the arrangements yourself, saving you time, frustration and possibly even money on a middle man. I did it and you can do it too! This is my story...

The Ultimate Medical Tourism Manual: How to Save Thousands of Dollars on State-of-the-Art Treatment Abroad

Author: Bill Heid

Year published: 2011


Because of the new health care legislation, many doctors are now refusing new patients or simply taking up their shingle and closing shop. A system that has boasted the best and the brightest now appears to be akin to the Titanic, sinking into the political waters of graft and corruption that is the hallmark of this current administration. However, there are still medical options available. Overseas medical care is coming to the forefront in state-of-the-art medicine, and the prices are nowhere near what you'd pay in the United States. With the new socialized medicine paradigm, we have no choice but to shop outside the country for our continuing medical needs.

Author: Maggi Ann Grace

Year published: 2007

Website: http://www.stateoftheheart.name/


This book is a nonfiction narrative that depicts the journey Maggi Grace and Howard Staab underwent when unexpectedly Howard's heart valve malfunctioned. The local hospital in Durham, North Carolina estimated the cost to fix it as $200,000. They faced the total bill because Howard had decided against availing health insurance, so instead they travelled to India for surgery.
The book to some extend is a travelogue, critique of the medical system in U.S. and healthcare drama. The record reveals the desperate search for alternative options to mortgaging their lives as substitute for Howard's life. It includes the journey to the Escorts Heart Institute and Research Center in New Delhi, the surgery, and the after effects. It is also the tale of a woman, lonely and extremely worried, who traversed the Third World streets blocked by cattle to get basic items such as chocolate and pencils and friendship.
