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.
