Outsourcing surgery to India - Medical Tourism

NPR's All Things Condidered discusses patients travelling to India for top notch surgical treatment. One patient reports that his knee replacement surgery, flight to India, and 21 days in a luxury hospital room cost $8000, less than half the cost of the surgery alone if performed in the US. McKinsey says medical tourism will be a $2 Billion for India by 2012.
