Five year result of hip resurfacing India

Successful result of hip resurfacing

“good evening Dr V, 5 years on from my hip replacement I climbed the 8th highest mountain in Africa. It took 1.5 days to hike 20k to the top starting at 1200m and finishing at 4321m. Surely that is a testament to your brilliant surgery.”
SR, Uganda.

The following email is from a Birmingham Hip Resurfacing India patient. Andy from Cambodia informs that he is doing great after five years.

Hello, Dr. V,

I’ve been so Blessed with the results I’ve had with the Birmingham Smith-Nephew Hip Resurfacing Method!!! I can barely tell the difference between my right and left hip. Couldn’t be better. I still can’t play the Piano, and I don’t want to learn Muay-Thai fighting-don’t want to get kicked in the leg. Love you a lot and Bless you for your diligence!!

Best Regards,

Andy

Andy came for a Birmingham Hip Resurfacing from Thailand. He wished to continue with an active life which the Birmingham hip resurfacing procedure allowed him to do. His operated leg feels no different from the other normal one.

I am glad things finally worked out in such a way that my I could get my cells implanted properly. Dr. Venkat is a rare specimen with a sharp mind and heart of gold.  I commend him for being impervious to intrusion into his surgical decision-making and knowledgeable enough to ascertain the value of the protocol I had worked on with scientific advisers  for months.  In my estimation, Dr. Venkat is a true asset to the world and you.  He did a heroic thing – taking on a complicated surgery on a complicated case at the last minute.  Dr Venkat’s actions helped both you and I come out of this OK and without conflict and the entire time he acted with generosity, grace, intelligence, and excellence.  We should both be very grateful to him.

Stem cell treatment AVN India.

Core decompression, Ossron, BMAC for AVN

Avascular necrosis hip CD+ABI+BMAC.

Stem cell treatment AVN India.
Watch stem cell preparation in this video. A core decompression is the first part of the procedure. It removes dead bone and creates a vascular environment for in growth of stem cells. Following core decompression, various categories of stem cells were used to regenerate blood supply, connective tissue and bone.  The first product injected was Bone marrow aspirate and a bone substitute. This contains angiogenic cells plus mesenchymal stem cells which encourage growth of blood vessels into the affected area.  Then live cultured Osteoblast cells ( Ossron) was injected. Ossron is a trade name for ‘ Autologous osteoblast implantation”. Osteo blasts are bone forming cells.  The back end of the cavity was filled with matrix bone graft.

Hip resurfacing failure

Hip resurfacing failure with loose socket

 Hip resurfacing failure – treatment with short stem hip replacement. See our website, www.hipsurgery.in for more information. Short stem hip replacements preserve bone in the neck of femur allowing a revision hip replacement later on. Short stem hip replacements are thus a valuable option for failed hip resurfacing.

Medical tourism in India= free market option for Americans

In 2007 a fifty year old New York church official sought double knee replacements in India. He was unable to attend to his chores. Through his research he discovered a surgeon in Chennai, India. He got both his knees replaced for 14,000 USD. This would have been un imaginable for him in the US. Many more Americans and Canadians have been hopping on to the medical tourism band wagon since then. This year I have received more inquires from Americans for knee & hip replacements than in previous years. Most patients seeking treatment abroad are uninsured. Hip & knee replacements are the most common procedures that are sought.
Canadians too are seeking treatment abroad as their options are more restricted by socialized health care. In addition, many of them want durable options which are unavailable to them in govt hospitals. Eric Carlson, an engineer from Alberta, Canada got an oxinium knee replacement. Another patient is keen on getting a custom fit knee replacement with an oxinium knee. More innovations like PRP injections, stem cell treatment are available.

Many myths about treatment abroad are unfounded. Developing countries like India have UK qualified doctors, good hospitals, infection free environment. I have spent several years in the UK and have visited Europe, Australia and the US to observe and learn new procedures. I am able to adopt new procedures without much intervention. Implant companies supplying hip and knee prostheses in India are not much affected by unnecessary taxes. I accept cash payments, credit card and traveler’s checks. Since I am an independent doctor, I can pass on cost savings to my patients who readily welcome this. You can slash overhead charges that come from a medical tourism facilitator. Since the internet is a free medium, you can easily discover this site on knee & hip replacements. Use your own judgement rather than being coerced by some facilitator who will obviously have a vested interest.
Patients travelling to our facility can expect to pay one third to one tenth the cost of the same treatment in the US without a long waiting time. Typically one can expect to pay 7500 USD for a knee replacement with us in India in comparison to 50,000 USD in the US. This is a great free market option for Americans. Costlier implants are also available.
Distance, separation from family, climate and apprehensions may be hurdles to the uninitiated but these seem minor in comparison to the bang on the buck. Many Americans consider this is a valuable learning experience of the operation of free market principles.
We offer knee & hip replacements, stem cell and regenerative medicine options. With regenerative options some younger patients can avoid or postpone a joint replacement. Cartilage and bone regeneration help achieve this.
We provide a door to door service like airport pick up, hotel arrangement, local transfers, treatment, holiday and airport drop off.
