Knee replacement in India

Treatment: Knee replacement (Total)
Provider: Knee India
Date: Sep 2012

Mr Brian Troughton, from Stafford, had been experiencing severe pain in his left leg for quite some time but had been told by his doctor that the waiting time on the NHS for a knee replacement was nine to 12 months.  He looked into having the operation done privately but discovered that a single knee replacement would cost £9,000.  He searched the internet and found Dr A K Venkatachalam’s details.   He was quoted a ‘package’ which included accommodation, food, surgery and physiotherapy and when Mr Troughton arrived in India the x-ray showed that both knees needed operating on.

Even with the cost of his flight (£500) and accommodation (he stayed in hospital for 10 days and later moved on to a holiday resort by the sea in a beautiful two bedroom cottage costing £10 per day) the overall cost was just £4,300 - a quarter of what he would have paid privately in England.   Said Mr Troughton:  “I was immensely relieved to be able to get the surgery dealt with so quickly and cost effectively - the service couldn’t have been better”.
