American's Hip Resurfacing in India

Rising medical costs and inadequate attention brings American to Indian surgeon for a Hip resurfacing operation.

New York, NY, December 20, 2008 --( American’s Hip resurfacing with Dr.A.K.Venkatachalam in Chennai.

Mr. Leonard Battipaglia relaxing at a resort two weeks after a right hip resurfacing.

An American citizen from New York Mr.Leonard Battipaglia underwent a hip resurfacing in Chennai with Dr. A.K.Venkatachalam of the Knee & Shoulder center Chennai. The affordable treatment provided saved him a lot of money.

In a vote of confidence for Indian surgeon Dr. Venkatachalam, an American citizen joined a long line of foreigners to undergo a Joint replacement. New Yorker, Mr. Leonard Battipaglia recently underwent a hip resurfacing for an arthritic hip. He will soon return to have his second hip also treated by the same surgeon. He is scheduled to undergo a Proxima hip replacement on that side.

Mr. Battipaglia had faced frustrating times with American doctors. Nearly for two years ago, he had been approaching a prestigious hospital in New York with thigh and knee pain. Every time he was shooed away by junior doctors without even undergoing an x ray. Finally an X ray revealed that he had advanced hip arthritis in both hips. He was refused a total hip replacement. Unable to bear the pain, Leonard then searched for other options.

He zeroed in Indian Orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. A.K.Venkatachalam for his expertise in hip resurfacing.

He arrived in Chennai with his wife and was accorded a warm welcome at Chennai airport on the night of the Mumbai blasts.

Within a day of arrival, he went under the knife of Dr. Venakatachalam. The surgeon performed a hip resurfacing on his right hip.

The left hp was destroyed beyond a hip resurfacing and will have a Proxima hip replacement shortly.

After enjoying another week’s holiday at a seaside resort, the couple has returned to Spain for recuperation.

Surgery performed at DR.Venkatachalam’s Hip & Knee surgery centre, Chennai, India.
