Susan has Total knee replacement surgery TKR in India

Susan, an uninsured American, received Total Knee Replacement surgery (TKR surgery) in India after sustaining a knee injury while skiing and living with pain for 32 years. According to Susan,

In my Internet surfing I discovered the world of "medical tourism ". I chanced upon an organization called Healthbase . They act as a liaison between patients and doctors from other countries. From the start I felt a sense of comfort and confidence working with Moe, the Healthbase representative in the US. He is from India and now lives in Boston. He became my source of information for doctors and procedures offered across the globe.

Susan had her knee surgery performed by the renowned knee surgeon, Dr. Sanjay Pai at Wockhardt Hospital, Bangalore, India. She comments the following about her patient experience,

As the week in Wockhardt was coming to a close, I felt so fortunate to have had such good care from so many skilled and compassionate care givers. Early in the week Sam, my PT came in with the x-rays of my knee before and after surgery. It was such a remarkable picture. My knee which was crippled with arthritis and painful bone on bone was replaced with this rock solid bionic joint. Again I feel just so lucky that this procedure was available to me.

For $7,000 the hospital provided transportation to and from the airport, all of my pre testing including x-rays and MRI?s for both knees, my surgery and night in ICU, a week of care in a very gracious hospital suite with meals for both Ruth (travel companion) and myself, all of the medication including enough for the week at the hotel, Physical Therapy everyday and a Walker and Cane. It is remarkable and in sharp contrast to the medical costs we pay in the States.

Total knee replacement surgery (TKR procedure)

A total knee replacement surgery, also known as knee arthroplasty, replaces the damaged bone and cartilage of the knee joint with artificial prosthesis called implants to provide a new healthy joint. It is an orthopedic surgery often performed to relieve pain and disability from degenerative arthritis, most commonly osteoarthritis.

A knee replacement surgery can be unilateral (involving one side or single side) or can be bilateral (involving both the sides, double side or two sides).
