We provide you with customized packages to suite your specific requirements. Our team works 24*7 to ensure your safety, security & comfort.
Our elite network of hospitals & doctors is created after stringent high level evaluation. The hospitals in our panel meet with international standards & are JCI (Joint Commission International-An international accreditation), NABH & ISO (top benchmarks in healthcare standardization) approved. All the doctors in our panel have rich international experience along with exceptional skill & expertise in their respective fields. We also offer all healthcare related services that match international standards.  All this ensures that trouble is taken out of treatment & your recovery is fast, satisfactory, comfortable & absolutely safe.

Medical Tourism: How can I expect a High Quality Medical Care at such Low Costs?

We collaborate with state-of-the -art hospitals & world renowned doctors with exceptional skills & experience. Thus, low cost does not mean any compromise in quality of treatment because the cost savings are due to other factors like favorable foreign exchange, economical medical education & low medicare expenses as against the exorbitant costs which have become the sad reality of the healthcare system of the West. Thus, Wyzax Medical Tourism offers world class quality of treatment at cost-effective prices.

Medical Tourism: Is it Really Affordable? How is this Possible?

Treatment in USA/UK = Treatment in India + Tourism + Savings - Waiting Time

Even after the cost of airfare, travel, stay & food, a medical procedure through Medical Tourism costs 5-6 times less as compared to any other advanced country. There are many reasons for this like favorable currency exchange, low cost of healthcare staff & absence of fringe expenses which have become the hard reality in developed countries.
Moreover, different economies are at different stages of development As compared to the US. Thus, many countries have world-renowned health care system in terms of quality and technology, but have not adopted the legal system completely as in the western countries. For e.g. doctors in the US are required to pay medical malpractice insurance that usually cost over $100,000 annually. Foreign doctors are required to pay medical malpractice insurance as well, but their costs are as low as $4000 annually. All this reduces the cost of treatment, but in no way means that their healthcare technologies and institutions are behind the US. In fact, most of the private hospitals in India use exactly the same machines and instruments as the most advanced hospitals in the west. Moreover, the package that will be devised for you will not only include your treatment cost, but will also include the cost of airfare, travel, food & stay of all your companions.

Why should I select Wyzax Medical Tourism (WMT)?

Our primary aim is to provide you with world class medical facilities at highly affordable cost (Why Wyzax Medical Tourism). However, since Medical Tourism is not yet an organized sector, therefore, in the absence of a credible intermediate (healthcare facilitator) like us, sometimes the foreign nationals get cheated with respect to the quality & cost of treatments. As the table below shows, the foreigners end up paying 30% to 80% more if they visit some of the hospitals directly or through non–professionals.

Comparative Cost – Indian V/s Foreign Patients

Procedure                      Indian Patient (Rs/$)                          Foreign Patient ($)
Heart Surgery                Rs. 2,90,000 ($6170)                        $ 9,300
Knee Replacement       Rs. 2,95,000 ($6276)                        $ 9,900

However, if the foreign nationals come through us, we not only ensure their complete treatment, but also ensure that they are charged similar to the Indian patients.
Moreover, we can also help our foreigner friends in the issue & extension of M-Visa (Medical Visas) & Tourism Visas.
It is also our endeavour to provide you with an opportunity to explore the natural beauty & the rich cultural heritage of our 5000 year old civilization.
