Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/0f6adc/health_tourism_in) has announced the addition of the “Health Tourism in India” report to their offering.

The quality of service coupled with comparatively low charges for common surgeries has made India an attractive destination for medical value travel. The main clientele comes from the neighbouring countries but an increasing number of non-resident Indians (NRIs) settled in the US and the UK have also been availing of the healthcare services in India. There is a good prospect of patients coming from the Middle East in future. The competitiveness of India in health tourism is enhanced by the attractiveness of the alternative systems of medicine, Ayurveda in particular, for the foreign tourists. A large number of tourists, both domestic and foreign, undergo treatment under Ayurveda not only for improving their fitness and well-being but also for curing many types of chronic diseases. The unique position that Kerala enjoys with respect to Ayurveda is due to the fact that the treatment in the State has proved effective in dealing with certain diseases, which are incurable by other systems.
