Medical tourism specialty: Fertility tourism

Medical tourism isn't new. It has steadily grown for years, more rapidly in recent years as medical costs spiral up and quality of care plummets in the west. Now we are getting medical tourism specialties. A story in early April in Newsweek's online international edition has a web page titled "Fertility Tourism: Childless Couples Try India". The story focuses on a British couple that went to India to find a surrogate. That part of the story is quite interesting and includes some of the issues that make finding a surrogate in the UK so difficult. But the thing that caught my eye was the term "fertility tourism". I suppose all sorts of related terms could be coined, dental tourism, etc. As the popularity of medical tourism grows the specializations and specialized terminology are bound to grow as well.
