Dubai, 23rd March 2011. Recently media has been ablaze of reported stories regarding medical tourism of botch surgeries, lack of legal recourse for patients and post-operative complications. All these stories have led several patients to believe that medical tourism is unsafe and leads to risk. Addressing this issue, Dr Prem Jagyasi, author of recently launched Medical Tourism Guidebook argues that travelling across borders to access healthcare won’t put a patient at risk, rather the lack of meticulous planning and preparation will. He emphasised that medical tourism is an age-old concept that has been occurring since the period before Christ.
