Patient's Name
Ed Frazier
Austin, TX
It's not every day that you fly halfway around the world for a knee replacement and come home with a new hip instead.

But that's exactly what happened to Ed Frazier of Austin, Texas. Ed suffered from debilitating pain in his knees for years and saw several specialists in the U.S. who told him he would need a knee replacement.

Ed, who is uninsured, was quoted prices he could not afford. He knew other countries offered quality health care, so he contacted MedTrava for professional information on the global options available to him for his surgery. Acting as his trusted advisor, MedTrava helped him select the surgeon and hospital best suited for his needs, scheduled the surgery and coordinated his entire medical journey. Ed chose India as his medical destination as it offered an unbeatable combination of expert orthopedic surgeons, some of the lowest prices in the world, and a rich culture he could explore.

Upon arrival in India, Ed was taken to Artemis Hospital near Delhi. Dr. Goel, his surgeon, simply looked at Ed walking across the room and immediately declared it was Ed's hip giving him trouble, not his knee.

Ed's x-rays and MRIs in the U.S. had only been taken of his knee. When Dr. Goel ordered additional tests on the knees and the hip, the diagnosis was confirmed. The damage to Ed's knee was minimal compared to his hip, and his knee troubles were being caused directly by his hip--in other words, fix the hip, and the knee will feel better. As a leading orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Goel is just as adept at performing hip replacements as knee replacements, and Ed was able to receive his surgery on his first full day in India. In less than 4 days he was walking around with crutches and a walker! In fact, a couple of weeks later he was enjoying a beautiful evening in a lovely palace hotel in Agra after spending an unforgettable afternoon at the Taj Mahal!

After three weeks of stay in India (Ed opted to stay longer than necessary to take advantage of additional physical therapy), Ed is now back home in Austin and gaining more mobility every day.

In fact, he's improving so well, he's already talking to MedTrava about planning his next trip to India to fix his other hip!
