There are at least 120 different types of cancer — all of them frightening, worthy of serious attention, and
often demanding expensive treatment. Although modern medicine has greatly improved survival, there is still a general
fear of even discussing cancer, and facilities providing cancer treatment tend not to feature such care in their
promotions. If you would like more information on cancer treatment, look for facilities that offer “general” care —
especially the large hospital systems in Asia.
They also commonly include a broad variety of alternative and complementary medicine in the same facility.
In India, for example, you can have not only stateoftheart western medicine, but also ayurvedic treatment, with
practitioners working well together as a team.
The Medical Tourism Travel Guide is the essential
guide for anyone considering a medical trip overseas. It tells you
everything you need to know to get top-notch medical care in
world-class medical facilities at a cost far less than treatment in
the United States. The author, Dr. Paul Gahlinger, has personally
visited a great number of the facilities described in this book, and
here he shares information on hundreds of clinics, hospitals, and spas
in about 50 countries, as well as important tips on how to travel, how
to pay, how to prepare, what to do, and what to avoid.
