Medical tourism has become a common form of vacationing, and covers a broad spectrum of medical services like epilepsy surgery in India. It mixes leisure, fun and relaxation together with wellness and healthcare. A combination of many factors has lead to the recent increase in popularity of medical tourism. Exorbitant cost of healthcare and medical facilities in advanced countries, ease and affordability of international travel, favorable currency exchange rates in the global economy, rapidly improving technology and high standards of medical care in the developing countries has all contributed their share to this rapid development of medical tourism. This process is being facilitated by the corporate sector involved in medical care as well as the tourism industry - both private and public. Medical tourism can be broadly defined as the provision of 'cost effective' private medical care in collaboration with the tourism industry for patients needing surgical and other forms of specialized treatment like epilepsy surgery in India.

 Epilepsy surgery can be especially beneficial to patients who have seizures associated with structural brain abnormalities, such as benign brain tumors, malformations of blood vessels (including disorders known as arteriovenous malformations, venous angiomas, and cavernous angiomas), and strokes. Epilepsy treatment has evolved to include consideration of the patient's quality of life, not just the number of seizures. Both continued seizures and high doses of medication impose costs on all areas of a person's life-intellectual, psychological, social, educational, and employment. The individualized approach that should be used when prescribing seizure medicines is carried over to the surgical treatment of epilepsy. State-of-the-art technology is applied to perform the safest and least-invasive procedure that will help the patient to achieve the highest possible quality of life.
