"Like manufacturing, Medicine has globalized, in search of lower costs for services. But a cheaply-made, second-rate cell phone isn't deadly—shoddy medical care can kill. The promise of medical tourism is bargain liposuction at a sunlit beachside resort in Thailand, but the reality is dark and dangerous in an entirely unregulated marketplace that too often puts profits well above patient well-being. This brave book dissects the realities of medical tourism, and offers bold prescriptions for change and safety."


Laurie Garrett, Senior Fellow for Global Health, Council on Foreign Relations


Book Description

A growing number of people are arranging health care abroad to avoid high costs, long wait times, or substandard care. These so-called "medical tourists" travel for a range of medical procedures, including orthopedic surgery, dental implants, fertility treatments, and stem cell injections. This book examines the risks and benefits.
