Default Medical Tourism in India

I would be interested to hear comments from travellers who have received Health Care in india.
I fancy spending some time there but need Hemodialysis every second day.

Medical Tourism refers to going there for a specific operation-----hip/knee replacement etc. There was a special visa for this, I presume there still is.

There is no problem getting good health care however obviously it would be private and expensive.
Your problem would be that you would have to stay in just one city to have regular dialysis at one hospital. Your own doctors would need to liaise with a specific doctor in India to give information about your medical condition. So it would not be much of a holiday.

I have done it in Germany and Portugal. Plan to do it in Bulgaria. Why not in India ? I cannot see what is wrong with the plan. No problem in spending 2 weeks in one place !

You want to condemn me to spend the rest of my life where I am ?

If you are happy to spend 2 weeks in one city ---then no problem. Pune might be a good choice. Remember that travelling to get there will take one day----getting to airports, 8 hour flight--onward domestic journey. Quite tiring.

There are expats in Thailand who have gone to India for treatment for cost reasons. I know of one guy who went for chemotherapy. What to look out for are private hospitals. Many are run by docs who worked overseas for many years. Hygiene is important. I have an Indian friend here in Bangkok. Will ask her if she can point you towards a possibility.
As an alternative: Bangkok has many dialysis facilities.
