DELHI as a treatment city at a Glance: 
Most health travelers heading to India come to Delhi for super-specialty cardiovascular or orthopedic treatment. One Hospital Chain alone, headquartered in Delhi,  India’s largest healthcare provider owns 37 hospitals and 7,000 beds.

New Delhi is sprawling, busy, noisy, and as the name implies, relatively new. Although startling cultural and economic contrasts exist, travelers are likely to find themselves more at home in Delhi than I other Indian cities such as Mumbai or Chennai. Delhi is the nearest medical center and point of departure for those patients willing and able to visit India’s star tourist attraction, the Taj Mahal in Agra (about 200 kilometers, or 120 miles, away).
