THE medical tourism industry looks to be in the pink of health again.

Things are looking up after the recession - which hit last year and continued for much of this year - caused some pain.

As many countries' economies have stabilised, industry folk like Dr Wong Seng Weng are more upbeat.

Dr Wong, medical director at The Cancer Centre, said the end of last year was 'a quiet period but there's been a return of confidence'.

Over at Parkway Health, its spokesman said it has seen a 'steady recovery' since the middle of this year.

'Generally, in a downturn, patients tend to postpone non-critical surgery,' noted the spokesman.
