Mohali, March 23: Even as medical tourism in the country has picked up faster than anticipated, the multi billion industry is now attracting foreigners and overseas patients to advanced Indian medical specialty centers more than ever before.

While sharing details of the operation with media here today Dr Ajaiwant Cheema, Director, Cheema Medical Complex, Mohali said that Elaine and her mother opted to undergo surgery through their careful selection of CMC after visiting many hospitals in Chandigarh and Mohali. Even as the duo was slated to come to India and Chandigarh for a visit otherwise, having treatment done for Nasal Polyps sounded a good option. With most affordable tertiary care available, Cheema Medical Complex was their obvious choice, said Dr Cheema.
Further Dr Sartaj Buttar, M.S. (ENT), Cheema Medical Complex who operated upon Elaine said a number of patients have been coming to Cheema Medical Complex for treatment from overseas. Elaine and here mother too found the ambience and staff too friendly, dedicated and professional.
Dr Cheema said that Cheema Medical Complex is taking overseas patients in a number of specialty departments including ENT, orthopedics and plastic surgery. While knee joint replacement and hip joint replacement at CMC are finding favor amongst foreigners, cosmetic and plastic surgery is again very popular.
