If you are travelling abroad for medical reasons for the first time, here are certain pointers to help you plan your journey better.
  • Ask your doctor if you are fit to travel overseas with your medical condition.
  • Once you decide to continue your treatment abroad, keep your local doctor informed so that you can continue your follow up treatment without a hitch.
  • When selecting the international hospital that’s right for your needs, you should consider the hospital’s facilities, infrastructure, etc
  • Check the credentials and experience of the doctor who will treat you.
  • Find out about the procedure and compare your expectations with what’s achievable by the surgery. Also enquire about follow-up care needed, time required for recovery, physical therapy, etc.
  • Please note that in most cases the final decisions on your treatment will be made only after the doctor meets you and examines you in person. It is possible that your doctor, upon examining you, may decide you are not fit for surgery, or recommends treatment different from what you planned.
