On-site Orthopaedic Surgeons Identify Options for Alberta Patients
CALGARY, Alberta, June 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Global MedChoices-TCI, Ltd, the leader in orthopaedic medical tourism, announced today it is sponsoring a series of Clinics in Alberta for patients concerned about knee, hip or shoulder conditions. Each Clinic will feature guest, local Canadian Orthopaedic surgeons who will discuss options for care.
"Individuals who are in knee, hip or shoulder pain are still very interested in staying active," said Richard Boddington, COO of Global MedChoices. "Growing up in South Africa and being an avid outdoor enthusiast myself, I appreciate the active lifestyle of Albertans, as well as the need for Global MedChoices to offer both affordable and timely access to surgery in order to reduce joint pain. These clinics are a great starting point to identify if medical travel to Turks and Caicos with continuum of care back home is the right route for the patient."
Global MedChoices offers orthopaedic medical travel to the Turks and Caicos Islands. Patients that require knee, hip or shoulder surgery travel to the islands where the surgical procedure is performed at state-of-the-art hospitals by leading Canadian orthopaedic surgeons. The close-to-home location in the Caribbean combined with access to care by North American surgeons and a commitment to continuum of care on-site in the Caribbean and back home in Canada, provides patients with options for care.
"The clinics will provide Albertans in need of hip or knee replacement or arthroscopic shoulder surgery with an expedited yet affordable choice in medical care," continued Boddington.
