Mauritius: Medical tourism is much appreciated
In 2012, 965 441 tourists lodged their suitcases in Mauritius for a few days of relaxation and rest well deserved for a holiday in the Sun.

21,000 visitors of them chose the Mauritius destination for health treatment, a figure growing by more than 70% compared to the year 2011. In 2005, only 5,000 tourists seeking medical care have opted for this formula.
 
Plastic, cosmetic surgery, cardiology, dental care, orthopedic, hair transplantation and fertilization in vitro, Mauritius hosted on its soil patients attracted by the quality of care provided by the many private clinics on the island. A medical tourism ceasing to see the curve of his patients go skyrocket over the years and the authorities count on achieving the symbolic barrier of 100,000 patients on the horizon of 2020, as lexpress.mu relates.

"The country offers a range of treatments and procedures that are not available in several other countries in the region... Services are also to international standards, not to mention that the country offers a friendly environment for convalescence", said a specialist doctor working in one of the most famous private clinics of the island.
