“Now that it is over, I am just amazed at the whole thing and plan to come back to get my other knee done,” said Derek Clarke from Dublin after recently having a knee replacement through Healthcare Abroad. “I found out about you through my dear sister, who was in palliative care. I visited her every day and she noticed I kept rubbing my knee. I told her that I had been suffering for a couple of years and couldn’t even enjoy a game of golf or take the dog on a little walk. She talked to her best friend of 50 years, who had a friend who had had an operation in Spain, and she got the contact information for me. My sister was always doing things for others and even planned her own funeral down to the last detail so we wouldn’t have to worry. Getting me the information to get taken care of was the last thing she got to do for me.”
“Even though it sounded too good to be true, I decided to give it a go as I was not getting anywhere with treatment at home. I discussed everything with Paul and only four weeks ago finally decided to go ahead. Everything was booked within minutes, and the same great service continued from the time I arrived. All the communication has been wonderful. The drivers are so efficient and caring. The hotel is first class. The surgeon and hospital staff set me at ease right away, and the post-surgery physio visits are setting me up for success.”
“I already feel that I can look forward to getting back to joining my wife on her long walks with our Border Collie, many rounds of golf and, of course, helping with the grandchildren once again. I love hill walking and can’t wait to get back to the Caha Pass in the Shehy Mountains.”
“I have nothing but good things to say about the whole process. I will be sure to tell everyone at my golf club and soccer club about Healthcare Abroad and how great this experience has been.” 🩺
