Read Book About Medical Tourism

I very interested with Medical Tourism the topics. Western patients are increasingly traveling to developing countries for health care and developing countries are increasingly offering their skills and facilities to paying foreign customers. This is more than 20 billion dollar business and the expert said that the amount double in 2010. From simple health care like spa to big surgery. In Thailand they offer sex change surgery! OMG!

So, if you want to do a Medical Tourism, or you just want to cure your sickness together with traveling, I recommend you to read these books before booking a seat:

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Medical Tourism
The Complete Idiot's Guide(r) to Medical Travel covers the financial advantages and treatment options for those who choose to travel abroad for health care. The guide will also show readers how to minimize risks as they search for the right countries, facilities, and doctors to meet their medical needs. Readers will learn how to identify and work with travel agencies that specialize in medical travel and what to expect in terms of follow-up care.

Medical Tourism in Developing Countries
The authors propose that medical tourism is not a universally feasible growth strategy. Instead, it is successful only in countries with economic and political advantages that enable them to navigate around international and domestic obstacles to trade in medical services. It is also suggested that a successful medical tourism industry, when coupled with cooperation between the private and public sectors, may lead to public health improvements in developing countries.
