Consult a qualified medical professional to know if you are fit enough to travel distant places
Make sure the hospital you wish to go to is licensed and preferably accredited by a recognized healthcare agency
Cost and quality of patient care should be kept in mind before finalizing the hospital for your treatment
Get details about the treating doctor, including professional achievements, qualifications and credentials.
Cross-check with existing patients if possible or do an internet search to look for details of the hospital you are considering
Educate yourself about the medical procedure that is considered and compare your expectations with what is achievable.
Note the necessary follow-up care, time required for recovery, and physical therapy if any
The decision on treatment can be made only after the patient meets with the doctor. Most hospitals do not guarantee any kind of medical treatment without personal examination which may include diagnostic tests. The exception is if it is a very clear case wherein the possible outcome is absolutely clear or the procedure is common place
In some cases your doctor, upon examination, may decide you are not fit for surgery or may recommend treatment different from what you had planned
You must ensure that you always carry necessary medical documents like X-Rays, MRIs, Medical records, Immunization records, Prescriptions and any other records relevant to the treatment
