Ken Snowden CA, USA - Healthbase - Dr. Bose - Hip Resurfacing

This was one of the most successful and life changing experiences of my time on the planet. From the time I started to investigate hip resurfacing online it was a rapped unfoldment of events and details so that my wife and I found ourselves in Chennai, India anxiously awaiting hip resurfacing with Dr Vijay Bose at Apollo Specialty Hospital. I suffered for 2 years following a bicycle accident that broke my hip socket. It was surgically repaired but deteriorated quickly turning into advanced osteoarthritus. The pain and increasing disability was destroying my career as a professional coach. My insurance coverage was minimal and that cost of going to India under Dr Bose care was 20 % of the cost of having surgery in the US and that included everything for two weeks, one of the weeks at a luxury resort. Most importantly, my research was telling me that Dr Bose is the best surgeon in the world at this procedure.

Healthbase not only helped me immediately transfer my X-rays review but took charge of all the details and communications involving the trip. Visa's, reservations in hotels and surgery dates, payment transfers, and conference calls with Dr Bose, and any other requests we made, Moe was invaluable to the smooth working out of the trip.

The surgery was remarkably successful and I was walking without pain 10 hours post surgery. I know that is hard to believe, but it is true. Dr Bose is not just a surgeon, he is almost a genius. I was riding my bike two and one half weeks after surgery and there has been virtually no pain since the surgery. Every day is better than the last.

To anyone in a similar position as I was, I would whole heartedly recommend you investigate Dr Bose at Apollo Specialist Hospital in India and contact Moe at to take care of all the details for you. And also look up web site on the internet. I can't thank all those involved enough for helping me get my life back.

A very grateful and healthy patient,

Ken Snowden

Dear Moe,
Things are going very well here. I am getting stronger everyday. I'm starting to do more and more things I couldn't possibly do over the last 2 years. I am really grateful for all you and those involved have done.
