Renown writer and travel guru Peter Greenberg recently challenged me to provide examples of what I call "medical travel no-brainers," which popped up this week on PeterGreenberg.com.

While many travelers may not yet be ready to head to a far-flung destination for major surgery, medical tourism offers money-saving choices for smaller, less invasive procedures as well. Every year, millions of international travelers partially or fully offset the costs of a leisure or business trip with a little planning ahead to make room for a medical or health procedure while abroad.
