Memphis, TN. July 12, 2013 – This week in the Turks & Caicos Islands, Global MedChoices-TCI, Ltd, the leader in orthopaedic medical tourism, successfully facilitated the company’s first arthroscopic shoulder surgeries, the latest in the companies orthopaedic offerings. The surgeries were performed by Dr. Ian Lo of Calgary, Alberta.
“I had been waiting for almost two years in Calgary to see a surgeon about my shoulder. I called Global MedChoices and within two weeks I was in the Turks and Caicos, at amazing facilities, with my surgeon” said Lisa Neff, a Global MedChoices shoulder surgery recipient. “The hospital staff is exceptional, the island is beautiful, and having Global MedChoices coordinate our transportation, accommodation and meals allows me to focus on recovery.”
Global MedChoices currently offers orthopaedic medical travel to the Turks and Caicos Islands, where patients can undergo knee, hip and shoulder surgery performed by a US or Canadian surgeon who travels to the islands. The patient receives post-op physical therapy in the islands and continuum of care back home. Canadian patients enjoy the benefit of expedited surgery versus waiting long periods of time for an operation date.
“Considering my age and the extensive damage, I could not risk much waiting time – at least six to eight months in Canada,” said Don Harris, another shoulder recipient. “I’m looking forward to golfing, lifting up my grandchildren, and enjoying retirement.”
“I am delighted I can offer my patients yet another option to suit their needs. Global MedChoices provides an opportunity for Canadian patients wishing to receive world-class expedited care,” said Dr. Ian Lo.
