Her Mumbai-based clinic has been the referral centre for various doctors and hospitals from abroad besides India for a number of years.
Dr. Kapoor who regularly blogs to provide general skin care advice on her website, www.rinkykapoor.com, mentioned that besides foreign medical tourists, more and more Indians are getting conscious about their skin care. Dr. Kapoor’s clinic provides various cosmetic surgery, reconstructive surgery as well as skin cancer treatment, in addition to generic medical advice on regular skin problems.
What Dr. Kapoor says is indeed true. Various media sources have reported India becoming one of the top draws for medical treatment. In fact, the government’s initiative to promote medical tourism is only expected to push this status further and the country may well become the most preferred medical tourism destination in the world.
