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 saint’s 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 lake’s 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. It’s a place of a rather wild and untamed beauty- and one of Sikhism’s most important shrine.

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".
"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 a patient".
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.
