Factors that affect Orthopedic Surgery Cost in India:

  • Technique of Surgery

    There are different techniques of performing the surgery which affect the cost to a great extent. For example knee replacement can be done as open surgery, minimally invasive surgery, using highly advanced computer navigation systems or with robotic technology. This affects the cost of orthopedic surgery to a great extent.

  • Whether or Not an Implant is Needed

    Many times you would need an implant or instrumentation that adds to the cost of the surgery. IndiCure recommends you to explore the surgical options by consulting our expert orthopedic surgeons.

  • Orthopedic Surgeon's Fees

    An important expense when it comes to your orthopedic surgery is going to be your orthopedic surgeon's fees. IndiCure recommends only experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering successful surgeries. Although the charges may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, you can be assured that you will be in safe hands when you choose IndiCure.

  • Surgical Facility

    Having your orthopedic surgery in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility also affects the quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be all inclusive and affordable.

  • Surgery-Related Expenses

    The surgery-related expenses include the pre- and post-surgical expenses. The pre-surgical expenses are associated with the age and medical condition of the patient and thus the number and type of investigations required. Post-surgical expenses may include prescription medications and follow-up consultations.

We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is inclusive and affordable at the same time.

Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the Surgeon.

Patient Testimonials

Having been home a few days now I can get my thoughts together and give my heartfelt thanks for the support and encouragement I got from IndiCure. Obviously, there was a certain amount of trepidation going to what has a reputation of being a third world country for a major operation like knee replacement, having received the type of treatment which I would think only the Royal family would receive in this country I wonder which is the third world country. From the organization arranged by your good self to absolutely first-class attention at the hospital and the service of doctors and his wonderful team all of whom spoke English, the nursing was one to one and my well-being was their only concern.

The operation has been a complete success. I am so happy with the results. The friendliness from everyone from consultant to ancillary workers was amazing.

Thank you,

  • The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
