What are the typical prices of private healthcare and surgery in India?

Few countries around the world have experienced more growth over the last ten years than India. This huge country has developed all aspects of its economy including its private medical industry.

India has a number of world class clinics and hospitals with state of the art technology, and highly skilled staff. All forms of medical procedures are available including cosmetic operations, obesity surgery and infertility treatment. From minor operations to major surgical procedures, India can meet all your healthcare needs.

Prices of medical treatment in India compare extremely favourably with those found in the UK. It's not uncommon to find savings of over 40% on a range of surgical procedures. For example, rhinoplasty costs in the region of £4,500 in the UK but in India you can expect to pay little over £2,500.

India boasts very high standards of medical care. All Indian surgeons must be certified by the Indian Medical Council, and registered with the Association of Surgeons of India. Many are trained in the finest colleges and universities around the world. Assuming, you choose a well-established clinic or hospital, the risks of travelling to India for medical treatment, should be no higher than those of having the treatment at home.
