Medical Tourism Corporation, a leading medical travel surgery facilitator helped Brisbane resident Yasin Odeh travel to India for affordable Pectus surgery - a complex and rare surgical procedure.
After facilitating out-of-country medical treatments for over 2000 patients from the West, Medical Tourism Corporation (MTC) proved helpful yet again by aiding Yasin Odeh, a twenty-eight-year-old man from Brisbane, NSW, who decided to get Pectus Excavatum Surgery in New Delhi, India because of his debilitating chest constriction and difficulty in breathing.
Odeh was diagnosed with pectus excavatum, commonly known as sunken or funnel chest – a chest deformity that affected his breathing. Wanting to be sure of his condition, he investigated and searched for proper medical treatment and possible surgery alternatives in Australia.
“I went to lot of places in Quinson, to get checked up, went to a lot of specialists. They said to me that there is nothing with you,” Odeh says. “Even when I did the breathing test exercises in front of them and it was bad, they still turned around and said it was good.”
Upon further research through the internet, Odeh acquired comprehensive information from medical tourism websites. He discovered that the standard procedure to relieve him from his current situation was called the Nuss procedure – a complex surgery of the chest area involving the surgical placement of a titanium plate under the sternum to make it “pop” out.
He also discovered that this procedure was quite expensive in his home country and only a few surgeons in the world perform it. Via MTC, Odeh was linked to a leading medical travel surgery facilitator that offered to help him with his predicament by providing the option of Pectus Excavatum surgery abroad - at a very affordable rate.
After carefully weighing his options, the young Australian finally decided to get Nuss Procedure in India, a country with steady influx of medical tourists, with the aid and guidance of MTC.
According to Odeh, the refusal of Australian surgeons to perform the procedure, expert surgeons in India and large amount for savings helped him make his life-changing decision. He reveals that he did not regret his decision and that it was the best choice for him.
Unlike Odeh, who is now recuperating in the MTC network accredited hospital in India, thousands of patients from affluent countries such as United States, Canada and Australia who need immediate medical attention have been on month-long waiting lists—one of the reasons that drive people to seek medical assistance abroad, Mr. Deepak Datta, chief executive of MTC, says.
Other reasons include the country’s lack of appropriate facilities and medical expertise as well as high surgery costs. “India provides a very good, cheap option, along with world-class facilities,” he further adds.
India, with its rapidly growing medical tourism industry, has attracted about 700,000 overseas patients last year, a report from the Deloitte Centre for Health Solutions reveals. For years, the country has offered medical and surgical options such as surrogacy, cosmetic surgery and heart treatments at very low prices. Orthopedic procedures like spine surgeries, knee replacement and hip replacement in India also attract offshore patients because of the cheap costs and high quality results. In fact, the cost of spine surgery in New Delhi, India lies 50 – 80% lower than in the United States or Europe.
Apart from that, getting medical assistance in India can also make the patient’s treatment a memorable one. The health trip becomes a vacation to one of Asia’s culturally rich and breathtaking countries. If permitted by their physicians, medical tourists can visit historical landmarks such as the Qutab Minar, the Red Fort and others.
