Thailand has been in the throes of prolonged gun battles between protestors and the police. Bangkok is the most severely affected city. Bangkok is the hub of medical tourism in Asia where most hospitals providing medical tourism are located. Americans head in large numbers for knee & Hip replacements to these Thai hospitals. These patients will no longer be able to travel safely to Thailand.
Now several countries like the US, Canada, UK, Australia have advised a travel advisory to their citizens to desist from traveling to Thailand. Most affected will be medical tourists as Thailand is the leading medical tourism destination in the world.
Obamacare synonymous with health care reform in the US is resulting in large number of patients seeking treatment abroad. New patients are finding that buying a medical insurance policy over the online exchanges is proving to be costlier. On top of that several hospitals have stopped accepting Medicare patients. Medicare patients constitute the largest group of elderly patients with hip & knee arthritis, heart ailments, cancers. Surgeon compensation has drastically been reduced under Obama care resulting in surgeons refusing to accept under insured patients.
With the route to Thailand unavailable temporarily, millions of these under insured, uninsured and Medicare patients are thus forced to look toward Indian surgeons and hospitals. For long Indian doctors have provided a matchless service in joint replacements like hip resurfacing, knee replacements. Indian hospitals have the best infra structure and several have JCI accreditation.
The situation in India is quiet. For long, Indian orthopedic treatment has been the cheapest for American patients. On many procedures, patients can save up to 80 percent.
Indian centers like the Madras Joint Replacement center score over other counterparts within and outside the country by offering the latest advances in Knee replacements at the most affordable costs. To mention a few, the Oxinium Journey knee replacement, stem cell treatment for Avascular necrosis, Autologous cartilage cell implantation for cartilage lesions, Hip resurfacing, Mini hip replacements are at the forefront of medical technology. The hospitals can justifiably boast about its service and infrastructure.
Recent American and Canadian patients will vouch for this.
