Shiv Preyan Shanker Nair optimistic about inflow of medical tourists in Indian metros
Shiv Preyan Shanker Nair Consulting & Medical Services, a Delhi based start-up is all set to ride high on the booming medical tourism industry.
Shiv Preyan Shanker Nair, CEO of the firm announced today that India is strategically poised for manifold growth in this sunrise industry thanks to the availability of advanced medical facilities in metros and a pool of world-renowned medical practitioners with expertise across major medical specialties and sub-specialties.
Shiv Preyan Shanker Nair, though an outsider to the medical fraternity (he is by profession a qualified lawyer) portrays tremendous experience in this industry. At just 28 years of age he exudes confidence akin to a veteran and provides valuable insight into what really spurs medical tourism in the country and in which direction it is headed.
He made this announcement on the occasion of signing- off of a strategic partnership with a Kabul based non-profit organization that aims to serve young children who are victims of bombings or are borne with congenital disorders and are left untreated in Afghanistan due to lack or complete absence of advanced medical facilities. As per industry sources most cases of medical tourism in India relate to joint replacement (knee/hip), cardiac surgery, dental surgery as well as genetic disorders.
Shiv Preyan Shanker Nair said "It is very unfortunate that innocent kids have to bear the fall-out of the war. Our organization has a mission to rescue and cure such children so that they are able to lead their normal lives again. I am hopeful that families will benefit from our consultancy services and our modest contribution will help alleviate their problemsâ€?. Shiv was positive that while there has been a steady increase in the number of tourists over the years, the second half of 2014-2015 will see a still greater inflow once a new government is set up at the centre and policies/ rules regulating medical tourism are improved.
