Why Orthopaedic Treatment in India ?



Patients from UK, Germany, USA, Canada and Australia with serious orthopaedic ailments are being attracted to India. Patients are flocking to India for a number of reasons, the major one being affordable cost. In India, patients can get cost effective cure, paying a quarter or sometimes even the 10th of the cost. 

Other factors that play a key role in drawing foreign nationals to India include personalised care, high quality low cost treatment, skilled surgery, clean hospitals and the absence of hidden charges and intermediaries. The average cost of a medical treatment in India is almost 1/6th of that in developed countries. 

Not only patients are turning to India in search of medical or health tours. They find it an excellent option to team up a tropical vacation with elective orthopaedic surgery. Even for people from countries like Africa, Bangladesh, Yemen, South East Asia and the Middle East, India has become the most preferred healthcare destination.

Day-to-day surgical operations like total knee and hip replacement and arthroscopic surgery of shoulder and knee are very much required by medical tourists coming to India.
People aged 60 years or above suffering from chronic ailments of the hip and knee are unable to afford surgical treatment in their own countries. Most of the people (45 million in the US) in the age group of 60-70 also do not possess insurance. A long waiting list of up to a year in the UK for elective orthopaedic surgery also happens to be a major deterrent for patients. 

Cost Comparison
In the US, a Total hip replacement surgery would cost around $35,000  whereas in India the same surgical operation can be done for a sum of only<  $6,000  Similarly, the cost of a Total knee replacement in the UK comes around 9,500 pounds , whereas the same in India costs just < 3,000 pounds.
