Opinion: Reforming Stem Cell Tourism

Opinion: Reforming Stem Cell Tourism | Medical Tourism News | Scoop.it

“As with many new areas of technological advancements, stem cell research has received its fair share of hype. Though much of the excitement is warranted, and the potential of stem cells promising, many have used that hype for their own monetary gain. Some market beauty products containing the rejuvenation powers of stem cells and vitamins that claim to boost adult stem cell function while others have established stem cell clinics offering treatments for major diseases and injuries. Although creams and vitamins may (hopefully) be relatively benign, the same is not true for stem cell treatments. Young and elderly patients have died from receiving illegitimate stem cell treatments; others have developed tumors following stem cell transplantations.”

Medical Tourism on the Rise

Medical Tourism on the Rise | Medical Tourism News | Scoop.it

Medical tourism is defined as obtaining a medical procedure outside the country of residence. This may sound far-fetched but business is booming globally. More countries are trying to attract patients to travel for medical reasons, and spend money in their market. Some locations even offer medical tourism facilitators to help with all medical arrangements, including choosing doctors, a hospital, transportation, hotels and sightseeing tours, if requested. The bundling of services acts as incentives to travel for medical care. It is estimated that 1.3 million Americans will seek medical care outside the U.S. in 2011, with 35% annual growth (Source: Deloitte).
