Travel arrangements

If you are traveling abroad for medical reasons for the first time, these are a few points to help you plan your journey better.

  • Once you decide to continue your treatment abroad, keep your local doctor informed so that you can continue your follow-up treatment without a hitch.
  • When selecting the international hospital that's right for your needs, you should consider the hospital’s credibility that may reflect on their infrastructure, equipment, the caliber of doctors, accreditations, awards, and recognition, etc.
  • Check the credentials and experience of the doctor who will be treating you.
  • Find out more about the procedure and compare your expectations with what is achievable by the surgery; also enquire about follow-up care needed, the time required for recovery, physical therapy, etc.
  • Please note that in most cases the final decisions on your treatment will be made only after the doctor meets you and examines you in person. It is possible that your doctor, upon examining you, may decide that you are not fit for surgery, or he may recommend a treatment different from what you had planned.
  • Certain documents must always be with you. Ensure that you carry multiple copies of the same and keep the originals in a safe place when abroad. These include medical records like X-Rays, MRI's, medical history, photographs, immunization records, prescriptions, and any other health records relevant to the surgery. Remember to carry all these medical reports and any medicines in your carry-on luggage.
  • You will need a passport for yourself and your travel companion (if any). Depending upon the country you are traveling from, you may or may not need a visa.
  • Bring some local currency, traveler's cheque and one or two major credit cards and debit cards.
