Medical tourism in the UAE is booming.
According to new figures released by authorities, medical tourism sales in the UAE crossed the AED 12 billion mark last year.
That's a 5.5 per cent year on year increase from 2017.
The rise is being attributed to more government-led initiatives and the rising number of international patients being treated in the country.
Experts say the UAE's medical tourism sector will be valued at AED 19.5 billion by 2023.
