“Though I was physically in a lot of pain and mentally miserable I didn’t lose hope. All this time I have realised that all that you need in moments like this is support of your family and the best healthcare tourism company working as a shield to introduce you to the best possible treatment.”
The one word Rachel used to describe India is ‘warm’. She add further that India has one the most hardworking and coordinating staff she had ever seen. Some other things she likes to mention are:
• Professionally managed surgery
• Rapid recuperation
• Modern facilities
• All the aspects of the total knee replacement trip were satisfactory
• Was most impressed by the doctors – very competent and have high training and easy to deal with
• Connected well with surgeon
• Had constant care
• Had been to India before felt satisfied
Rachel says that before she has decided to come to India and planned her treatment she actually did all the research and went through the stats of last five year. The average total knee replacement cost of total knee replacement in India is nearly half as compared to the developed countries. The success rates of total knee replacements in the country are huge.
After the surgery Rachel discharged in around 1week and returned US and has resumed her daily chores in around 6 weeks. Though she took 9months to entirely recover from the knee replacement surgery but soon the benefits started to appear. Rachel has started driving and other activities more frequently and hence her life stated to get back on track. She gives credits to the Joint Replacement Surgery Hospital India she was associated with and the hospital and skilled surgeons in India who has made it all possible.
“It is a slow process of recover but a therapist can help you with that as well. I am a strong person and this surgery left me stronger than ever. Coming to India was one of the good decisions. The staff there is amazingly passionate and is very helpful. The time of the surgery and every other important detail was explained to us by the doctors and the rest of the staff made sure to keep things in that exact order. While I was busy with my surgery I took some time to travel and see the culture and the beauty that the city holds.”
