Medical Tourism in Panaji

The capital city of Panaji with its quite a few state-of-the-art multispecialty hospitals and assisted by other world class medical facilities offers lot of promise on the front of medical tourism. It is already the hub of medical tourism in Goa and is pretty much the face of Goa’s medical tourism. Goa’s humongous popularity amongst international and foreign tourists has also worked wonders for Panaji’s tryst with medical tourism.

Medical Tourism Panaji

However, medical experts claim that Panaji’s success in medical tourism largely hovers only in niche segment of cosmetic surgery and dental surgery. There are no precise or obvious reasons though to justify this trend, but these two niche segments are pretty much driving the growth of medical tourism in Panaji. With foreign tourists not surprisingly making up almost 90%, while Indian patients from other states hardly makeup 10% in cosmetic surgeries and dental operations.

As for which hospitals of Panaji city are considered best for availing these medical services, then it is Vintage Hospital and Manipal Hospital. They both are considered amongst most reliable hospitals when it comes to especially cosmetic surgeries. These two hospitals are absolutely world class in terms infrastructure & medical facilities, and they are pretty much the flag bearer of Goa’s medical tourism. Another world class hospital is Apollo Victor Hospital located in Margao city, barely few kilometers from Panaji city.

There is another very important piece of information that especially patients who want to undergo cosmetic operations in Panaji surely need to know. That all the leading hospitals of Panaji give 100% assurance that identity of patients undergoing cosmetic operations would be kept secret. So, you can come to Panaji city without any doubts and worries.

Overall, it is apt to conclude that Panaji’s or for that matter Goa’s medical tourism industry is still in nascent stage. Foreign tourists availing medical tourism services in Panaji and other cities hovers around 20,000 to 25,000, which is way too low when compared to number of foreign patients visiting Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore. But potential for growth is definitely and surely there.
