Medical Tourism: Your Doctor is Halfway Around the World

Description

Medical tourism, in which patients travel across international borders to obtain various forms of health care, is rapidly rising in popularity. Most patients travel from developed countries to developing countries, seeking procedures ranging from highly invasive medical treatments to recreational medical procedures. In 2012, the medical tourism industry generated over $100 billion in over 50 countries.
