Surgery Abroad

By: Ankur Patel

"Hip resurfacing surgery is a comparatively new process in many country like, USA, UK & Mexico and so is not easily available in the country," says Ankur Patel CEO of, a Gujarat, India-based medical travel facilitator that connect people from all over the world to reasonably priced and easily available health care services available in Gujarat India.

Even in the United States, the hip resurfacing procedure, which is an additional bone-conserving practice than total hip replacement, was approved by the FDA only in May 2006.

According to "Most of our customers from the US, Canada and UK seeking hip resurfacing prefer to go to countries in Asia and Europe like India, Thailand, Belgium because the surgeons at our partner hospitals in those countries are much more experienced than their American, Canadian or Mexican counterpart."

Hip resurfacing, which is suggested for the younger active patients, is a technology that replaces the worn surfaces of the hip joint with caps of high carbide cobalt chrome. It differs from the conventional hip replacement in that it removes only the unhealthy bone and preserves the normal hip bone whereas the conventional total hip replacement procedure sacrifices a large quantity of normal bone.

Attesting to the top quality of care he received in India, Adam says, "My surgery went very smoothly. Dr. Patel is a fantastically nice person, very knowledgeable and experienced. All the personnel at the hospital in Ahmedabad- beginning with maintenance and going throughout nurses, waiters, executive personnel, doctors, healthcare technicians, etc. - were surprisingly professional, kind and lovely people."

Experience comes with practice, being a relatively new process in USA there are not many orthopedic surgeons there who are well experienced in this surgery. In contrast - "Many surgeons on our source network, for example, have performed more than a thousand such surgeries each," says Patel.

Thanking for all their efforts, Adam adds, "I want to give a very special appreciation and sincere thanks to, since without all their efforts, hard work, consideration, serenity and compassion I would probably have not decided to have my surgery done in India. Thanks for removing all my concerns and leading me throughout the whole process."
