“I was suffering from knee joint pain for the past few months. It was diagnosed as osteoarthritis of the knee and I was asked to undergo Knee Replacement surgery. My friend suggested me to go to India for this surgery which I later agreed was the best advice. The surgery was successful and I can now walk comfortably and even play with my grandchildren. I would just like to thank everyone in the Hospital for making my stay a very good one. From when I arrived at the airport to leaving 13 days later I never had a complaint. The surgeon was reassuring and looked after me well.
From your top nurses all the way down to the guys who cleaned the room it was all done well and made me feel very comfortable. The food was very good and I had no complaints there either.
If anyone in the Nigeria was thinking about having surgery in India and was worried or apprehensive about it don’t be, you will be looked after well. I must say a special thank you to the team of safemedtrip for coordinating all this superbly.Refer a Patient
