Medical Tourism
The availability of high-quality healthcare infrastructure at reasonable prices makes Kerala an ideal destination for medical tourism. Ayurvedic cures that combine herbal medicines with yoga, massage and meditation were the most sought after by international visitors, but now centers providing conventional medicine are attracting a huge number of patients from abroad. With state-of-the-art computerized technology, meticulous service and aesthetically furnished environments, tourists enjoy some of the best of facilities they can find anywhere in the world.

The cost advantage -- While a liver transplant could cost $140,000 in Europe and double that in the US, it costs about $45,000 in some Indian hospitals. Similarly, heart surgery in the US costs between $30,000 and $45,000 but only $5000 in the best hospital in India. In 2005, more than 150,000 patients, mostly from Europe and the Middle East, came to India and the number is rising by 30% annually.
