Samuel Adebayo is a 30-year-old Nigerian who desperately needed a hip replacement procedure following a rather severe accident and hip dislocation. Unfortunately, he couldn't find the services he needed in his native land. Through PlacidWay, he found one of the best orthopedic surgeons and joint replacement facilities in the world; the Madras Joint Replacement Center, located in Chennai, India.

Samuel's Experiences in India
Upon his arrival at the airport, Samuel was pleasantly surprised to find staff from the Madras Joint Replacement Center waiting for him, relieving him of the stress of arriving in a foreign land with which he was unfamiliar. "The tests and procedures went very well," says Samuel, who states that he felt very comfortable with the attentiveness of staff and his care during his stay. Not many patients say that these days regarding a hospitalization and surgical procedure.
Following two months of rehabilitation, Samuel anticipates a full recovery and return to his formerly active lifestyle, without the pain and stress his immobility has caused. Samuel received an advanced ceramic on ceramic hip replacement to replace his hip joint, severely damaged in a car accident.
"Lack of medical facilities to treat such injuries is unfortunately fairly common throughout Nigeria," states Pramod Goel, CEO and president of PlacidWay, and international medical tourism resource and provider. "PlacidWay is happy that Samuel found the quality care he was looking for, and deserved, and is now well on his way to restored mobility and function."
The ceramic on ceramic hip replacement procedure is one of the newer technologies in hip replacement procedures, offering biocompatibility and resistance to long-term wear and corrosion.
"Hip replacements have an 80% chance of lasting at least 20 years," says Dr. Venkatachalam. "These days, joint replacements are designed to glide smoothly without causing pain, friction, or damage caused by normal wear and use."
Samuel is glad to hear about that, and twice as glad to get back to his daily activities, thanks to PlacidWay and the experience and expertise of Dr. Venkatachalam.
