At this website, medical tourism becomes Medical Tourism. It’s basically a global one-stop shop for any ‘overseas’ medical procedure: heart bypass, tummy tuck, root canal work. You can clock on the map of the world, to check out what particular regions have to offer, or you can just browse through the site, enjoying the peaceful, soothing layout and the photographs of fishermen and rocky beaches, deck chairs and cherubs. What fishermen and rocky beaches have to do with having an operation, I cannot say — let alone cherubs.
One amusing, small US-centrism: the flight times to particular regions are all calculated from LA and NYC. Thailand, for example, is “a very long flight.” You can also obtain an online quote, I guess for the cost of the trip, the surgery, hotel rooms and maybe a bus tour thrown in.
