February 4, 2008, Deerfield Beach, FL – The producers of Health Forum, an innovative, educational television series, are pleased to announce that they will feature MedTrava Group, in a segment on “Medical Tourism: Improving Access to Quality Affordable Healthcare,” as part of a “Healthcare without Borders” series.
As the costs for medical insurance and health care in the U.S. continue to escalate, medical tourism is fast becoming a very appealing alternative. Dedicated to empowering individuals and organizations in their effort to receive the highest quality healthcare at the most affordable costs, Austin, Texas-based MedTrava Group connects its clients to a network of leading medical experts and facilities. Its hand-selected, rigorously pre-screened, internationally accredited network allows its clients to save as much as 70% over the cost of like procedures in the U.S. India is one of the company’s most popular locations.
Known for its five-star facilities, international quality treatment, internationally qualified and experienced specialists, and affordable healthcare services, India is a much-desired medical tourism destination. The cost of healthcare there is considerably lower than healthcare in the U.S. For example, heart surgery in India can cost as little as $6,000, but in the U.S. the same surgery can cost $60,000 or more. And the cost for a bone marrow transplant in India is approximately $26,000, compared to $250,000 in the U.S.
In addition, India offers the latest equipment and infrastructure, like the Da Vinci surgical system for Robotic Cardiac Surgery, 64 Slice CT Scan, and Linear Accelerators, like those used at Sloan Kettering in New York. It is also home to one of the two Brain Suite installations in the world, and enforces strict blood safety and infection control processes.
“There is nothing more important to MedTrava than the quality of care for our patients. We evaluate and assess our partner facilities and leave no stone unturned to guarantee our clients obtain the best care anywhere,” says Poonam Dhawan, MedTrava CEO. “Our goal, and our passion, is to broaden our clients’ horizons and give them the assurance of a healthy and happy life.”
The segment will feature the many benefits of medical tourism, and will include interviews with MedTrava representatives and clients. To learn more about medical tourism and MedTrava Group.
