The ranges of treatment the medical tourists obtain vary widely. They start from simple comprehensive medical check up to elective procedures such as rhinoplasty, liposuction, breast augmentation, orthodontics, and LASIK. Often they do visit for larger
and life-saving procedures such as joint replacements, bone marrow transplants, and cardiac bypass surgery etc. Medical tourists can now obtain essentially any type of medical or surgical procedure abroad in a safe and effective manner for a fraction of the cost that they would face in their home countries.
