    Medical tourism is international travel with the intention of receiving medical care. Medical tourists travel for many reasons, including cost savings, limited domestic access to specific treatments, and interest in accessing unproven interventions.

Online resources are important to the decision-making of potential medical tourists and the websites of medical tourism facilitation (...)
