Knee Replacement Surgery

The knee is said to be the largest joint in the body and it comprises of the lower end of the thighbone (femur), the upper end of the shinbone (tibia), and the kneecap (patella). The ends of these three bones are covered with articular cartilage, a smooth substance that protects the bones and enables the bones to move easily.

When the Knee is severely damaged either by arthritis or injury, Knee replacement is considered.

Patient Stories

  1. My day to day life started to hamper, due to unbearable back pain and painful limbs. I was scared of surgery as I have never been admitted in a hospital ever before in my life. I was confused with all the options popping in the internet. I came across the site of Medtravels and started exploring it. The reviews and testimonials gave me a confidence. I contacted them explained my condition and also how scared I am of the whole process. The team was so sensitive to my situation and always reassuring about the services and the whole treatment process. They provided me with multiple opinions with detailed profile of hospitals and doctors and I made my choice. Once am in the hospital, a minimally invasive surgery was performed and I was out of the hospital in just four days. The attention provided by all staff nurses and doctors are commendable, they were very kind and considerate. The team of Medtravels has always been a companion through my treatment journey. I am now back to a normal life and have regained my quality of life.

  2. A couple of year back, I was diagnosed with arthritis in right leg and the only cure was a hip joint replacement surgery. I heard of Medtravels from a friend who happens to have some past business experience with the company. So, he helped me reach out to the Associates in Medtravels, who then asked for all my past medical reports, I shared the reports and almost within 24 hours I was given an estimate that actually suited my expenses. However, I went online for more information about the company and their hospitals and was very impressed by the response and tie-ups they had. I was to travel alone, so I was a little uncomfortable travelling to a completely different country. However, immediately upon arrival there was an executive from Medtravels to pick me up. It seemed much more organized than I expected it to be. That alone was comforting. Once I arrived at the hospital, I felt very reassured about my surgery seeing the world class facilities available in the Hospital. I felt very assured that I was in good hands as there was truly open communication between doctors and myself. After my successful surgery, I left India but with memories to cherish and a friend like Team Medtravels herein.
