Medical tourism in India means traveling to India for health and touring to famous Indian destinations after or before getting the surgery. If you need any medical treatments like invitro fertilization (ivf) in India, the cost is far cheaper than in the US or Europe. So the foreign patients can get their treatment done in India, get world class treatments, and get a tour holiday, all this at a low price. Here the facilities offered are of world class and hence it is believed that the facilities are more suited for International patients. Many highly qualified doctors have had some form of training from abroad, especially USA and UK. Indian surgeons and doctors are known for their skill and research throughout the world. Many couples from different countries travel to India to get infertility treatment because it offers some of the cheapest pricing options, offers a good holiday, there are no waiting lists and doctors are highly qualified.
The infertility treatment in India is conducted by various methods like Artificial Insemination Assisted Reproductive Techniques, Cumulus Aided Transfer, Donor Oocyte Program, Embryo Cryopreservation, Female Sterilization, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Surrogacy. Techniques for assessing the viability of an embryo when genetic issues are present are cell biopsy and evaluation and pro nuclear biopsy and evaluation. The pregnancy rate by age is similar to that of normally conceived pregnancies: 37% among women younger than 35 years and 28% for those aged 36-39 years. The success rate is about 13% in those older than 40 years. Pregnancy in women older than 44 years is rare. The rate of miscarriages with IVF pregnancies is the same as that with normally conceived pregnancies. Ectopic pregnancy occurs in about 3-5% of cases. An ectopic pregnancy is a serious condition that requires emergency medical care. The embryo is growing outside the uterus and does not survive.
