DUBAIWATER, March 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The healthcare industry has experienced significant challenges as a result of the COVID pandemic. The virus hampered the treatment of patients who had to fly to India for better treatments and procedures. The situation is gradually starting to normalize and foreign travel restrictions have been eased in India.

Previously, due to the pandemic, medical tourism suffered major setbacks and patients had to postpone their surgeries and other treatments due to travel restrictions. It impacted many lives and worsened the patient’s condition, increasing the risk of morbidity and mortality associated with treatable and preventable health conditions. The delay also contributed to additional reported deaths indirectly related to COVID-19. Many hospitals, after the ease of travel, have started to extend their services to international patients who wish to seek treatment in India for their medical conditions.

Manipal Hospital urges patients not to delay any more in their treatments and surgeries. With exceptional equipment, world-class technology and a team of experienced doctors, the hospital provides healthcare services to international patients while adhering to strict safety standards. At the same time, Manipal Overseas Patient Care Center provides excellent services to its international patients, such as visas, transportation, insurance, and many more. Despite the pandemic, the hospital successfully treated critical patient cases who required kidney, liver and heart transplants. With the opening of international borders, the hospital is now able to use its air ambulance services for patients from different countries.

Sir. Karthik RajagopalCOO, Manipal Hospital Enterprise, saidManipal Hospitals has always believed in the importance of making healthcare accessible to everyone. Many patients have had to postpone their treatments due to the pandemic, but now that COVID cases in India have been brought under control and international crossing points open up, we are happy to offer our services to our overseas patients. It is now essential to recognize that delaying emergency and routine medical care will increase the risk of worsening of underlying diseases and may result in mortality. With international borders open, we can now continue to help overseas patients whose procedures have been postponed due to the pandemic and travel restrictions. Nothing brings us more joy at Manipal Hospitals than giving our patients a new life, and we encourage our patients not to delay their treatment or surgery. We are now ready to maintain the same level of trust and clinical excellence among international patients, thanks to our incredible team of doctors.”

The medical tourism industry seems to be improving as the pandemic subsides and as the situation improves, patients are coming in for treatments they had to postpone due to the pandemic. Patients with chronic diseases and those in need of organ transplants are increasingly traveling to other countries for treatment.
