Medical Tourism Industry a Growing Trend Among Those Frustrated with U.S. Healthcare System

Wednesday, 25 November 2009

In 2008, it is estimated that approximately 1.3 million Americans traveled abroad to seek healthcare and this figure is expected to double by 2010.1 Frustrations related to U.S. healthcare combined with emerging facilities from distinguished companies like Atlantic Health International (AHI) are molding medical tourism into a low-cost, viable option for quality healthcare. Houston-based AHI is highly recognized and respected in the U.S. healthcare market as having significant experience in healthcare development and management. It is because of this reputation that AHI is able to attract board-certified U.S. physicians with the highest standard of medical/surgical care, including Scottsdale-based Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Amit Sahasrabudhe.

"A common misconception is that patients traveling abroad for care are seeing physicians who practice in those countries," Dr. Sahasrabudhe said. "I am proud to be among AHI's group of U.S. physicians who will be making frequent trips to Mazatlán to perform the same procedures I offer from my Scottsdale location at a fraction of the cost."
