ThumbSince I did not have insurance and was retired from my services, I was searching for a very cheap option for my knee surgery so that I can pay out of savings in order to get rid of my worn out knee joint that was causing too much of a pain over the years. The doctor here in US told me that I need a knee joint replacement surgery and that would cost me anywhere between 40000 US Dollars to 45000 US Dollars.

That is a very big money for a retired person Iike me. I knew there are many people like me in the US who are facing the same problem. Then I started searching on internet to find out what these people do when they need a surgery ? While doing so, I came across a new terminology called medical tourism. I did more research and found out that a lot of Americans are going to faraway countries to get their surgery done at a very low price when compared to US. I thought let me give it a try. I started writing mails to people in Mexico, Thailand, Singapore and in India since I had found out that these are the countries where people are going in large numbers to save money on their medical treatment. I think I had sent 25 to 30 mails in one single day. But out of these one company called in just 5 minutes of sending my query online. That company was Mentors Ethicare Pvt. Ltd..

I was very impressed to see their speed. I think it was very late night in India at that time and I did not expect a call so soon. A lady called me from Mentors Ethicare Pvt. Ltd. and asked me to send the x-rays and medical reports by email. I did that and next day morning I got a reply from Mentors Ethicare Pvt. Ltd. which had surgeon's opinion, cost of surgery with all inclusions and exclusions clearly mentioned, details of the hospital and the location. The cost estimate that I had got was truly unbelievable, just 7000 US Dollars which also included the cost of implant and a stay of 6 days in a private room at the hospital. The surgeon was a very senior surgeon who had an experience of performing more than 3000 joint replacement surgeries. The hospital was JCI accredited. What else can I ask for? But still in order to completely satisfy myself I kept on writing emails and calling Mentors Ethicare Pvt. Ltd. for the next few days. Every time I did that, I got a very fast , complete and courteous response. After collecting enough details finally I landed in India for my knee surgery and I was very pleased to see these guys waiting for me at the airport with a placard in their hand. Took me to the hospital and on second day I had my surgery which was followed my physiotherapy sessions after few couple of days. I was discharged from the hospital on the seventh day and to my surprise my hospital bill was still 7000 US Dollars. I could not believe that after getting such a fantastic service and care. The Mentors Ethicare Pvt. Ltd. officers helped to find hotel accommodation near the hospital where I stayed for another week before flying back to US. I did some sight-seeing and shopping ehile I was in India. What an experience it was ! I had my great medical tourism experience with Mentors Ethicare Pvt. Ltd. and I strongly recommend their services for so many people waiting for their surgeries.
