What is Medical Travel?
Medical travel (Treatment Abroad) is the process of travelling outside the home country or country of residence in order to obtain medical treatment. High medical/surgical skill, affordable cost, high quality and no waiting time are generally the main reasons for seeking medical care abroad.

What is Second Opinion?
A Second Opinion is an opinion about your medical condition or medical care from a different doctor. Even though you may be hesitant to ask for a second opinion, it is very common to seek peace of mind and comfort while dealing with a medical problem. By seeking a second opinion, you can confirm your initial diagnosis & recommended treatment, compare different treatment options and, overall, become a better-informed patient. Take, for example, a University of Michigan study of breast cancer patients, in which more than half of them changed their treatment after getting a second opinion on their diagnosis from a board of medical, surgical and radiation oncologists.
Not only that, you can seek an opinion for even non-life threatening diagnoses. You can save time, money and effort by getting a second opinion for a condition that may affect you day-to-day life (such as back pain, sports injuries, toothache etc.
Why should you obtain Second Opinion?
Peace of mind
With the Second Opinion, you get a different perspective on your diagnosis that may confirm the original prognosis or may offer an alternative. Nevertheless, you will be confident that you explored all medical options for yourself or your loved one.
Avoid human error
At the end of the day, even your doctor is a human being. Even experts can make a mistake while reading your Ultrasound, X-ray or MRI. It could be because of a tough day in hospital, overnight work or simply inexperience. Many studies have shown that the diagnosis or treatment options were different in approximately 20% – 50% of cases.
Avoid needless treatment
In some cases, even with the right diagnosis, a patient can be confused by the various treatment options. Making that decision by yourself could mean that you undergo invasive and, sometimes, even harmful procedures. By opting for our Second Opinion service, you can ensure that you make the right decision while saving time & money.
