Healthbase  Mexico Patient  - Stephen D

Hip Resurfacing 

Dr. Vijay C. Bose

Apollo  Specialty Hospitals, Chennai, India


Now I am back home in Mexico, I am just dropping you a line to give you my feedback on the whole experience of traveling to India for my Birmingham Hip Resurfacing surgery.

First of all let me say how impressed I have been by  You have certainly exceeded my expectations both in terms of the clear and accurate information you have provided and also the way in which you made everything so easy, whether it was choosing between the various potential locations for my surgery, to getting a visa and booking all the accommodation before and after the hospital stay.  I really appreciated Moe and his colleagues being so easily accessible and able to return my phone calls so promptly.

 Traveling half way across the world to a city like Chennai for major surgery

is in some ways a daunting experience.  But Healthbase and Apollo Hospital made everything run as smoothly as possible.  All the transportation was in place on time with polite uniformed drivers to meet me at the airport, and a couple of days later at the hotel to take me to the hospital.  The Platinum ward was very comfortable and all the staff incredibly welcoming.  Because all aspects of the care were of such a high standard, I can not single out everyone for special mention, but would like to thank Mohan, the chief administrator, especially: nothing was too much trouble for him, whether it was adjusting my lap top to pick up the wireless internet signals or choosing a place for me to buy saris for my wife!

 Focusing on the surgery itself, I can not praise Dr Vijay Bose and his team of doctors too highly.  From my first interview with Dr Bose, he inspired a massive degree of confidence that he was the right choice to undertake this surgery.  And so it proved, with a faultlessly executed operation, and follow up care of the highest standard.  So far my recovery has been far faster than anyone previously indicated, and now, four weeks after the operation I am walking perfectly with no crutches, and ready to start a more intensive exercise regime so I can get back to competitive showjumping with the minimum of d


I also have nothing but the highest praise for the Ideal Beach Resort: a perfect and inexpensive place to recover and exercise before the flight home, with a delightful beach and delicious food.
