Testimonials

“I found out that I needed an operation for a back problem which was causing severe pain to my left leg from the sciatic nerve. After speaking to my GP and realizing I was getting nowhere I decided to take the matter into my own hands as I could hardly walk. After speaking to private consultants and realizing that without private medical insurance I was not going to be seen to in this country without shelling out around 20,000 I decided to look elsewhere. After reading a newspaper article I decided to look into having the operation privately in India and was fortunate to come across Mediescapes India. From my initial enquiry when I e-mailed my MRI results to Mediescapes India I was amazed ..more.”

Mumbai as a treatment city at a Glance:
India’s most populous city, Mumbai, and its surrounding area are home to 20 million, making it the world’s fifth most populated urban center. Formerly Bombay (Portuguese for “good bay”), Mumbai is the economic and entertainment hub of India.

With six large private hospitals serving international patients and a number of specialty treatment centers, Mumbai now counts healthcare as one of its most important economic assets, along with engineering, information technology, and film. (“Bollywood” is king in India, and any hospital visitor with a television will be treated to some lively and colorful cinematic productions.) Mumbai is India’s New York, bristling with commercial activity and cultural diversity, extreme in every imaginable way.

Mumbai is headquarters to two large, multi-specialty hospitals, including the JCI-accredited Wockhardt Hospital and Heart Institute and the renowned Jaslok Hospital. Wockhardt’s treatment center in Mumbai has established five super-specialty clinics for cardiology, neurology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, and minimal access surgery. One of Wockhardt’s two super-specialty heart Institutes is here, offering a full range of cardiovascular diagnostics and surgeries.

Jaslok Hospital, one of the India’s oldest and most venerated, offers 35 specialties, with a fully loaded International Patient Services center. Mumbai also hosts smaller, prestigious, single-specialty clinics, such as the JCI-accredited Shroff Eye Hospital and the Rotunda Center for Human Reproduction.

About Mumbai City:
Known as ‘Bombay’ until 1996, Mumbai is the commercial capital of India. Its original name "Bombay" emerged from the Portugal term "Bom Bahai" meaning good bay or harbor. The city was formed by the reclamation of 7 islands on the central-western coast along the Arabian Sea. Mumbai lies 1400 km west of the Indian capital, New Delhi. It is also known as Manchester of India. Mumbai boomed into a textile city in the 19th Century. With the opening up of the Suez Canal in 1869 the city's future as India's primary port, was assured. Now it is the second biggest city in the world. The Glamour of a prolific film industry, cricket on the open areas on weekends, bhel puri (Indian snack) on the Chowpatty beach and red double-decker buses enhance the charm of the city.

GETTING THERE:
Access by Air:
Mumbai is well connected to the main Indian cities. It has regular flights to all the major Indian cities. The international Netaji Subhash Airport (Chatrapati Shivaji Airport) is 27 kms from the city. Most of the domestic airlines have direct services to and from Mumbai to other important cities of India such as Delhi, Kolkatta, Bangalore, Chennai, Patna, Varanasi, Lucknow, Goa, Cochin.

Access by Rail:
Regular train services connect Kolkatta to all the major cities in India such as to Kolkatta in Eastern India, New Delhi in North India, Cochin in South India, Chennai in South East India etc.

Access by Road:
Mumba's National Highway connects it to the major cities of India. The National Highway connecting Kolkatta is superbly made with long driving and motels in between kept while upgrading the highway for the welfare of the drivers in mind.

Climate:
Mumbai has three main seasons - Summer, Monsoon and Winter (milder summer). November-February, winter time, is the best time to visit. March-May is the summer with another hot spell late September. June to September is the monsoon season when the city is lashed by heavy rain. The city gets flooded 2 or 3 times and normal life gets disrupted during this season. Climate is humid pretty much throughout the year because it is on the coast

Sightseeing places in and around Mumbai:

Gateway of India:
A ceremonial arch built in 1927 to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary is located in the southernmost peninsula of the city. Constructed in honey-coloured basalt, the design of the gateway was inspired by 16th century Gujarati Architecture. The changing light of the rising and setting sun bathes this imposing arch with various hues of gold, russet and pink. The Gateway holds historical significance as the last of the British troops leaving Independent India by sea marched through its portals. 

Marine Drive:
It is most popular promenades and sunset-watching spots. Build on land reclaimed from Back Bay in the 1920s; the marine drive starts from below the hanging gardens on Malabar Hill, runs along the Arabian Sea and ends at Nariman point. This sweeping Queen's Necklace, flickering with a thousand lights at night, is a delight for the eyes.

Flora Fountain:Flora Fountain
It stands at a busy five-point intersection in the heart of the commercial Fort area. The beautifully sculptured fountain was erected in the memory of the Governor, Sir Henry Bartle Edward Frere, as a tribute to the contribution he made to the city.

Chowpatty Beach:
This stretch of beach is well known by locals and tourists alike as a great place to indulge your taste buds in the evenings. A 'food-plaza' of stalls offering a range of snacks like 'bhel-puri', 'chaat', 'kulfi' and fresh coconut water! Chowpatty, situated at the northern end of Marine Drive, is a great place to witness the annual Ganesh Chaturthi Festival in August/September when large images of the elephant-headed god are immersed in the murky sea. As a part of the city's cleanliness and beautification drive, Chowpatty is also being given a face-lift.

Elephanta Island:
Rock-cut temples on this peaceful Island, 10 km northeast of the Gateway of India, are the Mumbai's major tourist attractions. Believed to have been carved between 450 A.D. and 750 A.D, the temples are still worth a visit. The main cave contains large sculpted panels relating to Siva, including the astonishing 6 metre high triple-headed Trimurti - in which Siva embodies the roles of creator, preserver and destroyer.
