Meet Derek Byrne, a computer engineer from Ballyfermot, Dublin, who found himself sidelined by knee pain. He had to stop all work due to his continued ongoing pain. Frustrated by the long wait for surgery in Ireland, Derek turned to Healthcare Abroad after hearing glowing reviews from his brother’s holiday encounter. Despite the challenges from home, with the help of Healthcare Abroad, Derek made his way to Spain for his much-needed knee surgery. Now, with his first knee fully recovered and hopes for a second surgery this year, Derek looks forward to returning to work and living a pain-free life.


“My brother has been on a holiday to Spain and met someone who had been with Healthcare Abroad for surgery, and they were raving about how good the service was.”

“Thankfully, I found Healthcare Abroad. Everyone was fantastic. The operation is so slick and amazing. It is a perfect system and it works like a dream”
