Medical Travel to Turks and Caicos Islands Provide Options for Patients with Knee/Hip Arthritis
CALGARY, Alberta, Oct. 21, 2013 /CNW/ - Global MedChoices-TCI, Ltd, the leader in orthopaedic medical tourism, announces Calgary Knee and Hip Clinics. Local Calgary surgeon, Dr. James MacKenzie, will be available to assess patients for suitability to have out-of-country hip or knee replacements.
"Individuals experiencing knee and hip pain enjoy the idea of having surgery and recovery during the winter months to allow them to participate in spring and summer activities such as golf and hiking," said Dr. James MacKenzie. "At the clinic, I assess patient condition, and determine if medical travel to Turks and Caicos is right for that patient. In December, I will travel to the Turks and Caicos and perform these surgical procedures at a state-of-the-art hospital on the island. Care on the island is facilitated through Global MedChoices, while I provide follow up care back home in Calgary. Global MedChoices handles all the logistics from travel, to accommodations and hospitality to concierge services."
