Gurudwara Hemkunt sahib, is a spiritual holy shrine
in Himalayas where The Tenth Guru of the Sikhs, Guru Gobind
Singh, meditated for years, finally leaving his earthly form
and uniting with the Almighty. The star-shaped Gurudwara Hemkunt
Sahib, at a height of over 4,000 mt, is as such, a memorial
to Guru Gobind Singh and a reminder of the saints mission.
Set amidst towering snow-capped mountains and
lying beside a lake of pristine blue water, the Sikh shrine
of Sri Hemkunt Sahib looks, even to the not-particularly-pious,
a place of almost unbelievable beauty and peace. Seven peaks
- known as the Sapt Sring- surround the shrine, looming over
lush green pastures. The lakes rocky shores are covered
with snow through most of the year, but when the snows melt,
the almost mythical yellow-green flower known as the Brahma
Kamal, the `Lotus of the Gods, blooms amidst the rocks.
Its a place of a rather wild and untamed beauty- and
one of Sikhisms most important shrine.

since 1997. The interest in cosmetic enhancement is
greater than ever and so is the need for information on different
procedures and treatment available. Website created by us
is a step towards helping the patient in getting latest information
and treatment options.
Our 20 years experience of adorning the patient's body
has kept us in leading role in the field of Medical Tourism.
Every patient who has visited us has helped me in refinement
in my approach for excellence. Patients coming for cosmetic
surgery are very sensitive. Great patience is required in
handling them. Before I share my experiences with you, let
us understand "What Is Medical Tourism".
is a concept gaining very fast popularity. Professionals attached
with health care delivery system envisage patients coming
for the treatment of their problems to a competent reliable
institution from outside world. Persons visiting us are not
only patients, but also, guests willing to explore INDIA.
Besides medical treatment they come to know our rich culture,
hospitality, tastes, places of tourist interest and business
produces. Much needed foreign revenue is added to our country.
It is our joint responsibility to treat our national guests
as VIPs because our national pride is attached.
From our experience of 20 years dealing with varied foreign
national coming for cosmetic surgery has pointed out following
facts which are worth sharing here:
1. Credentials and Results of International standards :
Projection of "International Board Certified Cosmetic
Surgeon" is well understood. EXPERTISE CERTIFICATION,
helps them in selection of a Cosmetic Surgeon who can deliver
what they want and on whom they can safely depend. To earn
confidence of a foreign national or NRI our certificates are
displayed in website which projects our hard earned knowledge
in the field of my specialization - cosmetic surgery. Detailed
display of pictures of our work speaks out of our 20 years
experience helps the patient who is looking for a right specialist.
Our results of cosmetic surgeries comparable to the International
standard, available at our websites with comprehensive details
of the procedures, supported with before and after set of
pictures of the patients, have helped us winning patients
confidence from different parts of the world. Photo gallery
on our websites contains many such sets of wide variety of
cosmetic surgery operations done here so far. Aiming for a
project like Medical Tourism, expecting patients from far
off countries, for treatment in our specialty, we have to
show some thing special that we can deliver which others cannot.
If we can do little more than others in a better way, it gives
us immense pleasure.
2. Affordable Low Cost:
Finances are important for every one. Looking into the
international market patients wants best to their money. Any
one will like to do the same. After being satisfied with the
credibility and work experiences as seen in the results, now
focus is on COST.
Running a health care delivery system and
keeping it up to international parameters does have its cost.
Not compromising with the standard or working and results,
we have a 'Rate List' prepared. This helps in establishing
our credibility and winning the confidence of the patient.
Our cost is 10-20% only of the prevalent cost in other countries
like UK, USA, Canada or Australia. Therefore, we face no difficulty
in keeping our working standard, patient care and results.
Emphasis is on more turn over so that we gain from second
and third round patients and so on. We are thus gaining.
Keeping a rate list and strictly adhering to it helps establishing
our credibility that for us all patients are alike. In our
profession, I feel, there is no place for bargain or duel
standards. This has given us peace, no regrets.
3. Attention to the patient Needs :
Patient is a human being. He/ she is much more that a 'Nose
job' or 'Liposuction' or some procedure. Patient deserve fullest
attention even to their small needs, besides medical attention.
we have support staff and infrastructure to pay attention
to such humane needs and provide much needed personal attention
and care to give homely feel, than that of a hospitalized
patient. We clearly convey them "Yes, we are here to
look after you, you are going to be my GUEST, not only
Patient's concern are about travel arrangements, transportation
to the hospital, hygienic food of their taste, Non alcoholic
drinks and water which are safe. We need to guide them to
make their travel arrangements for the nearest airport. We
ensure them that pickup will be waiting for you at the airport
and you will be transported safely to us without any hassle.
Cozy, comfortable air-conditioned accommodation is kept ready
for them. After initial welcome and drink patient is allowed
to relax after a long tiring journey for some hours, then
only medical discussion start.
4. APPOINTMENTS :
This is very important. Fixing appointment for surgery
is desired by the patient and by us also. As a rule we do
not operate without prior appointment which is done after
a part of payment is send in advance.
5. Multi specialty Approach :
It always pays to have specialist of other specialties attached
to your unit. Joint operational facilities and coordinated
approach helps the patient to get more problems attended and
treated in short time. This saves time of the patient who
are almost always have limitations with available time. It
is economical for them, and, we get extra work and revenue.
6. Working to undo misconceptions about INDIA :
very sensitive aspect which needs careful attention and action.
International patients including our NRIs have very wrong
notions about India as regards security, hygiene, sterilizations,
working conditions etc; Lot of time and energy is spent to
dispel their fear.
Security is a valid concern for every one. No one will
like to risk themselves by landing into an unpleasant situation.
Safety and security of all our visitors is ensured.
We, for this reason provide pick-up to and fro; and ensure
full safety at our responsibility. Hygiene matters,
as most outsiders suffers from GI upset. Their concern for
it is attended by ensuring specially prepared home made
food for them.
Our experience says, that, to win over patient's confidence,
we have to keep our nerves, and, it is our duty to ensure
that their fears, whatever, is well taken care, and are unfounded,
so please relax. This approach has helped us.
7. India Medical Tourism Expo June 2005 and 2006 London
Participating there was a great experience. We got an opportunity
to project ourselves in all aspects of patient care, and to
understand needs of our foreign nationals planning to come
for cosmetic surgery treatment to India. This has increased
the potential of international patients coming to us. We appreciate,
it is a huge responsibility. We are prepared and ready.
In spite of all of the above, we admit that we are still learning.
