High-Tech Healing Opportunities in India

The health care sector in India has witnessed an enormous growth in infrastructure in the private and voluntary sector. The  private sector, which was very modest in the early stages, has now become a flourishing industry equipped with the most  modern state-of-the-art technology at its disposal. It is estimated that 75-80 per cent of health care services and  investments in India are now provided by the private sector.

An added plus has been that India has one of the largest pharmaceutical industries in the world. It is self sufficient in drug  production and exports drugs to more than 180 countries.

The privatization of the medicare sector has brought with it five-star facilities and world-class treatments. The country can  now boast of a number of corporate hospitals. India is a source market for professionals in the medical field for most of  the  renowned hospitals around the world. Hi-tech medical facilities have become a necessity following consumer demand  along  the world’s fastest growing middle class. India offers at its own comparable success rates and service levels  directly  in proportion to the high – value system and natural caring that comes with its millennia heritage. Indian hospitals  are becoming known internationally for standards of health care delivery, comparable to the best in the world. India has  technology and the skilled super specialists coupled with sound infrastructure and paramedical staff to take on  international  competition.

Major hospitals in Chennai, Mumbai, Hyderabad and New Delhi have recorded a twelve per cent patient flow from   neighboring and South East Asian counties. This is because people have realized that they can now have access to  international quality medicare at much leser cost in comparison to other countries. The average cost of a cardiac surgery at the  best hospital is very nominal with a success rate of 98.5 per cent, which is comparable to the best institutions in the  world. A bone marrow transplant costs are also unbelievable low in comparison to the international market.

Technologies for the new millennium including electro-cardiography through conferencing will soon be introduced in India,  making it feasible for doctors to benefit from the advice of other experts. 

Indian doctors recently performed the country’s first robot-assisted heart surgery which reduces the risk and trauma  associated with critical conditions. This operation, performed at the Escorts Health Institute and research Centre (EHIRC)  is incidentally, the first of its kind in any developing nation.

You can also avail the bicarbonate dialysis facility at these centres. Round the clock service available at these hospitals for the critically ill patients in the intensive care units who may need fluid, electrolyte management and renal supportive therapy. The cost of getting a dialysis is very less in compared to to another countries.  Similarly a kidney transplant package in India is available for far lower cost which is comparatively much cheaper than what it would cost in another countries.

High intensive care treatment at much cheaper rates than in the west is available at most of these centers.

Refractive Surgery

Refractive surgery is gaining popularity in India both among the public as well as among    ophthalmoloists. Till a few years ago only a few centers performed high volume radial keratotomy.   Today, the highest international quality of eye care for cornea, cataract, squint and glaucoma is   available in over 40 centers, all over India. When it comes to reliability, India has the best   ophthalmic surgeons with clinics – academic expertise honed to perfection in the best possible   institutions.

Facilities for PRK, myopia and astigmatism are now available  in almost all parts of the country. Hyperopics and LASIK are available and even supra hard cataracts are treated using just  1 mm incision instead of the 3 mm incision size. Photo-refractive keratectomy or PRK treats the surface of the cornea with  the Excimer laser while LASIK treats the inner tissue of the cornea. For this reason, with LASIK there is less area to heal,  less risk of scarring, less risk of corneal haze, less post –operative pain and vision often returns very rapidly.

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine is now commonplace. As it involves use of radioactive isotopes in very  small doses in diagnosing and treatment of diseases, radioactive medicine is injected or  administered orally and the distribution in the organ is scanned using a Gamma camera.  Tariffs are low and following treatments are tests are offered at very nominal cost. Thallium rest (SPECT), Lung  perfusion and venogram of upper or lower limbs, Ventilation study,  whole body skeletal study, Thyroid scan. Various non-cardiac  planar / SPECT studies for bone, thyroid, liver and lungs scanning functions are performed at  specialized centre in India. Diagnostic imaging of the brain, stomach, kidneys, heart,  adrenal glands as well as sites of occult infection with the help of sophisticated  Gamma Gacera with tomographic facilities linked to computer systems can also be performed at many of these centre.
