New Delhi's decision to cap prices of expensive stents — a device used to facilitate blood flow in arteries — is now benefitting hospitals in next door Himalayan nation where heart surgeons are offering rich patients the expensive tubes now banned in India. Interestingly, the patients are mostly Indians flying into the Himalayan capital for implants.Bulk of doctors conducting such stent placements are from India, all using high priced stents normally used to avoid heart surgeries but currently banned in India.

Indian Medical Association (IMA) rules do not prevent Indian doctors from performing surgeries abroad. For the records, Indian doctors have been routinely flying to Dubai every month to conduct operations. Now, Nepal, claim sources, will be the latest home of this growing breed of doctors who, over the last decade, have been developing medical practices outside India alongside their operations within the country.
