Total Knee Replacement Surgery – February 20, 2007

I had total knee replacement surgery performed by an orthopedic surgeon in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I had health insurance in the United States, but due to a pre-existing condition (3 previous knee surgeries), my insurance carrier would not cover me. With the assistance of MedToGo, I chose to have my surgery in Puerto Vallarta with a surgeon they knew well and trusted.

Before deciding on this physician, I did some checking on the cost of having the surgery done in the states and learned that I would have to pay in the neighborhood of $45,000 for my surgery, hospital stay, rehab and follow ups some 400% more than what I wound up paying in Puerto Vallarta.

This did not include my flight and hotels or any incidentals that I had to pick up while staying in Mexico. It did include the surgery, 3 nights stay in the hospital, follow-ups by the surgeon in the hospital and in my hotel room, 4 sessions of rehab performed by a qualified doctor and physical therapist, all medications, and a walker, which I only used 2 days.

My experience in Mexico was amazing. I feel that the operating-physician was a well qualified, detail oriented, and experienced orthopedic surgeon, and I was very lucky to have him doing my Total Knee Replacement Surgery. He took the time to call me every day and to visit my room on numerous occasions to see how I was doing. I would recommend him highly.

While I would have liked to do the surgery in the United States, the monetary angle was monumental in my decision to go to Mexico. Now after going through the whole procedure, I would say it was the best decision I ever made.
