Testimonial for Birmingham Hip Resurfacing – Curt Caprine
Curt Caprine, Orange, California
My right hip suffered two sport related injuries between ten and fifteen years ago and about four years ago I started to feel pain and stiffness whenever I did anything physical which progressed to the point where I could not do anything without considerable pain. This was greatly affecting my work as well as my personal life.
Due to unforeseeable circumstances I did not have medical insurance and after consulting an Orthopedic Surgeon I was told that I had Arthritis in my hip and the only option was to replace it.
I had already heard about Medical Tourism so I started researching the internet and learned that I wanted the birmingham hip resurfacing procedure so I can continue to do all of the activities that I love to do. My original
reason to go abroad for hip surgery was primarily based on cost but as I learned more
I could also expedite the process much faster and surgeons elsewhere had far more experience with hip resurfacing since it was only approved here in the U.S. in the middle of 2006.
I contacted several companies that organize the trips for treatment and chose Worldmed Assist because right from the start they
listened to everything that I had to say and answered every question, and there were many! I was not taking this decision to go abroad for treatment lightly but I felt much more at ease as I built a relationship with them. This was important to me because they really did understand what I was going thru in making this kind of decision.
I checked out
surgeons over many months of research, but one of the surgeons that they recommended had the highest qualifications and experience of all that I had seen: Dr. Kaushal Malhan at Fortis Hospital in Mumbai. Fortis Mumbai is associated with Harvard Medical International and accredited by Joint Commission International.
I was going to organize this trip myself but my decision to go with Worldmed Assist was the right choice.
They worked with me the whole way and made it very easy to do everything necessary for a trip like this including great airfare and hotel accommodations. Everything was taken care of and nothing was overlooked.
I went to India by myself but Worldmed Assist kept in contact with me the whole time and made sure that there were no problems of any kind! I never felt alone.
Fortis/Wockhardt Hospital and its staff were first rate and I was
treated very well. It
is now almost 8 weeks after my hip surgery in India and I am feeling better everyday, and the people at Worldmed Assist are still in contact with me to make sure that everything is going well and if there is anything that they can do.
My trip to India was an incredible experience and I very much enjoyed getting to know the people at Worldmed Assist, I have already and would recommend them to anybody that needs to get medical attention abroad!
