LeAnn Weaver - Total Knee Replacement Testimonial

» return to Testimonials

I’m Lee Ann Weaver from Tulsa, Oklahoma. I came down for a total knee replacement. I decided to look into medical tourism when I found out what it was going to cost in the States. We’re self employed, and our insurance for the last 8 or 9 years, we had the same policy, the rates kept going up, and we had to keep adjusting the deductibles went up also. And we couldn’t go anywhere else because I had knee surgery earlier, and it was a pre-existing condition, so I couldn’t find another carrier. And finding out it was going to cost $54,000 to have it replaced in Tulsa, I decided to start looking into options, and someone told me to check abroad. So, I started doing some research, and that’s when I found MedToGo. I liked what I saw, checked into it, talked with them and did a lot of research on MedToGo, and found that they are a very upstanding company with great people, and when I was doing research on countries, Dr. Max Greig’s name kept coming up on my researches over and over and over again. That’s when I decided to have my procedure done in Mexico. I’m 12 days out, and I’m doing great. I’m having no problems. I’m getting around. I’m just doing great.

Besides the savings and cost, I found the hospital to be immaculate, very clean. I have had very little troubles with communication. Everybody knows English. I know very little Spanish, but I was able to communicate very well. I was very pleased with the level of care, the cleanliness, just the caring. Everybody on staff has treated me like family. Going to Mexico I had a lot of concerns, because I didn’t know the medical care down here until I did more research. I found that I would be going to a new, state-of-the-art hospital. This surgeon, Dr. Greig is using the same equipment, same techniques that American doctors were, so that set me at ease. I just put it off too long. I should have done it much sooner. I have a second chance now to get back to life with a new knee, and wouldn’t wait, I would just do it.

Hi Robert,
It was good to talk with you yesterday!
It’s been four months since my total knee replacement with Dr. Max Greig in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. After years of limited mobility. I finally have my active life back!! I am swimming an hour daily, biking, and working out at the gym five days a week. All things I thought I’d never be abet o do again. I just can’t say enough good things about the excellent care Dr. Max and his staff gave me while in beautiful Puerto Vallarta! LeAnn Weaver

Hello Dr. Max!

This morning I had my one year check up with my local Orthopedic doctor. (Surgery was Sept 26, 2013)

After looking at new x-rays and checking my numbers (135 degrees – WHOOOO HOOO!!), he said he was very pleased. He also said that he thought my surgery outcome was one of the best he’s ever seen! This is from a doctor, who at my initial visit was not pleased that I had gone out of the country for my knee replacement, and was very critical of my decision. At that visit he was also skeptical of the good results I was getting from deep massage and dry needling my PT was doing to keep my tendonitis under control. I visit my PT for dry needling about every 6 weeks to work on my handstring/calf muscles.

Today, he had nothing but praise for your work, my PT’s care, and my hard work to get my knee back to 100% again.

Thank you so much for everything, Dr. Greig. I know it’s a cliché you’ve probably heard many times, but you really did “give me back my active life again”.

Hugs and much love,

Le Ann Weaver
