Case Study : An 87 year old US citizen who needed a mitral valve replacement turned to India as no hospital would touch him being a high risk patient. He underwent a triple by-pass surgery years ago that cost him $40,000 in contrast the mitral valve surgery, a more complex and expensive surgery cost only $8,000 here in India. (The patient’s damaged mitral valve was replaced with a bio-prosthetic valve whose life is said to be 15 years.)

Qus . : I always thought India was a poor nation of snake charmers and rope tricks. How then can it offer world-class health care, that too at minimal costs ?

Ans.: India has all along been a knowledge-oriented nation. However, it never had a chance to showcase its expertise. The revolution in Information Technology changed the rules of the game. And India made complete use of the knowledge base built by its English - speaking engineers to come out and display its immense capabilities.

And now for the costs. India is a diverse economy where a family of four can live comfortably, without debt, on a monthly income of just $300. As a result, the costs of services and products too have stayed at extremely low levels.

Now, thanks to the world becoming inter-connected and people being more willing to explore other nations, India has emerged as a preferred source of low cost healthcare. An extremely welcome alternative to the prohibitive costs prevalent in the western countries.
