Joint Replacement is one of the most common surgery for which patients are coming to India from all parts of the world. The most common surgery amongst the joint replacements is the Total Knee Replacement Surgery. While a Bilateral TKR costs USD 17000-20000 in Thailand it costs USD 9000-12000 in India. The low cost of surgery coupled with a very high success rate has made India the favourable destination for Joint Replacement. Joint Replacement is being done at more than 300 hospitals in India. Out of these atleast 15 hospitals are now having the facility of Robotic Joint Replacement Surgery. Robotic Surgery is slightly expensive as compared to the manual or the Computer Navigated Surgery but gives far better alignment and a very high precision.
A large number of patients coming to India for treatment include the patients who come for spine surgery. The neurosurgeons in India have mastered the art of Spine Surgery and have been giving excellent results in the last 15 years in this field. Whether it is spinal instrumentation or spinal tumours the expertise level in Indian Neurosurgeons is extremely high. The advent of high resolution microscopes have made endoscopic spine surgery the preferred choice for most neurosurgeons. Spine Surgery is very advanced in India with a very well developed Post Surgery Rehab programme. Patients from all parts of the world come to India for different types of spinal surgeries. Indian Neurosurgeons are considered amongst the best in the world when it comes to Spine Surgery.
The cost of joint or spine treatment in India is in the range of USD 3500-7000 in which most of the surgeries can be done. This cost is significantly lower than the costs in Thailand or South America.The other costs like travelling, boarding and lodging are also quite low at around USD 40 per day for an airconditioned room in a guest house for a couple of people which includes breakfast. This plays a major role if the length of stay of the patient is going to increase due to the complexity of the case. Post surgery Rehab costs around USD 20 for two sessions per day which also makes it attractive to come to India for 3-4 weeks for the surgery and the post surgery rehabilitation. Indian Phyiotherapists are also considered best in the world due to the varied experience which they get in the course of their practice.
