DUBAI, UAE, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Recently media has been ablaze
of reported stories regarding medical tourism (Medical Travel) 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
cross border 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,
it has lots to offer if planned meticulously.

and medical travel industry via the launch of Dr Prem’s Guidebook – Medical

location might seem like a seemingly simple process, there are several
intricacies, challenges and issues associated with the industry that all
potential medical travellers should be made aware of.” The decision to avail
medical services abroad is a crucial aspect on whether or not your journey
will be successful.

In order to ensure meticulous planning, the comprehensive guidebook lists
all the essential preparation steps to ensure a safe and successful medical

before they travel, appropriately budget for medical tourism and pack the
essential items they would require during the trip.” added Dr Prem, who is
