Lynda is a busy mum and sales assistant who faced significant challenges due to a misdiagnosed back injury, which was later identified as a hip issue caused by chronic arthritis.
After being on a waiting list for over a year in Ireland with no hope of timely treatment, Lynda’s friend recommended Healthcare Abroad after they heard about it on a podcast. Within two weeks of contacting Healthcare Abroad, Lynda travelled to Denia, Spain, for a full hip replacement, and the entire process, from initial contact to surgery, was excellent, including assistance with travel and accommodation.
From the moment she arrived, the hospital staff made her feel at ease, explaining every step of the procedure and ensuring she had no waiting time. She was impressed by the cleanliness and professionalism of the hospital, comparing the staff to those on “Grey’s Anatomy.” Her surgeon, Doctor Henkel, provided thorough explanations and reassurance along with constant support from Healthcare Abroad. While recovering, Lynda formed friendships with other patients thanks to the community atmosphere. Now, she looks forward to resuming her active lifestyle and highly recommends Healthcare Abroad for its outstanding service and support.
