Testimonial for Bilateral Knee Replacement India – Kris Mann
Kris Mann, Whitefish, MT
Arthritis started attacking my joints about seven years ago, and by 2007, I needed pins installed in my ankle to alleviate the pain. I’d been intrigued by a 60 Minutes show on medical tourism, so I started my internet search and came upon WorldMed Assist.
I considered becoming a medical tourist then, but because I was allergic to many metals and would need titanium pins, I decided to stay close to home in case I needed to have the pins removed.
I gave it a year to be sure there was no reaction, and then connected back up with WorldMed Assist to arrange to have both my knees replaced with implants made of 100% titanium.
I’d been quoted $18,500 just for one implant in the U.S.- installation not included!
Totaling all costs, it would have cost me around $90,000. WorldMed Assist gave me options, and I chose Fortis/Wockhardt Hospital in Bangalore, India.
The price there was $17,000 (installed!) for both special-ordered knees, including the hospital stay in a deluxe private room that was over three weeks.
The attention I got at Fortis/Wockhardt was amazing.
The first thing I noticed was that the level of pre-surgery testing was a lot more extensive than I’ve ever had at home.
Then I noticed the difference in how much attention is given to every patient.
I couldn’t believe how many doctors came to see me every single day, and the nursing staff was very attentive.
My physical therapist worked not only on my knees, but also on the pain that had developed in my back.
One thing I’d recommend is if you can afford it, take a travel companion with you.
That long a stay was a bit lonely and isolating. I met several other American patients at the beginning of my stay, but they all went home before I did.
With my new knees now in place, I’m looking forward to living a better life.
My life had become very limited, and running our horse farm had become difficult.
I never thought I’d get back on a horse again, but thanks to the excellent results, I hope now to be able to do that.

I’d recommend checking out international options to anyone who doesn’t have insurance and needs this kind of surgery.
I’d also recommend WorldMed Assist.
They were great to work with.
