Infertility cures draw medical tourists to city

Infertility cures draw medical tourists to city- The Times of India: This article highlights the fact that the internet has now empowered patients to look for medical treatments well beyond their own country. I personally dislike the world "medical tourists". These are patients who are looking for medical treatment, so calling them "global patients" or "international patients" or "overseas patients" would be far more appropriate. In any case, this just shows how patients can break the shackles of the limitations imposed by their local medical system, to find the treatment which is right for them. Thus, patients may look overseas for treatment options if treatment is too expensive in their own country; is not available locally; or is not allowed by their local laws. The internet has facilitated this search tremendously, adding considerably to the clout the patient can wield !
