Consult a qualified medical professional to know if you are fit enough to travel overseas and can withstand long-distance flights

Choosing a hospital

  • Make sure the hospital you wish to go to is licensed and preferably accredited by a recognized healthcare agency
  • Cost and quality of patient care should be kept in mind before finalizing the hospital for your treatment
  • Get details about the doctor, including professional achievements, qualifications and credentials. Cross-check with existing patients if possible or do an internet search to look for details of the hospital you are considering

Educate yourself about the medical procedure that is contemplated and compare your expectations with what is achievable. Also note the necessary follow-up care, time required for recovery, and physical therapy if any
