Medical Tourism and Cash Pay

If you are looking for medical tourism and cash pay options I have affordable choices for you. I have substantial experience with destination orthopedic care based upon an inclusive bundled payment package. Over 400 hundred patients have come to see me and have their surgery in Phoenix. These patients have come from as far away as Alaska, around the Continental U.S., all across Canada, Central and South America, and Asia.  I work closely with an entire care team from in office support staff, anesthesiologists, hospital partners Honor Health Deer Valley Medical Center and CORE Institute Specialty Hospital, physical therapists, other medical subspecialists when needed for patients with complex medical problems, and even a personal concierge to assist with appointments, travel needs, etc., in order to create a complete package for your care. This collaborative effort offers my patients the best in available technology, excellent healing environments, and comprehensive yet cost effective destination care.

My patients coming to Phoenix for destination orthopedic care often recover in the comfort of a rented local home. With extensive experience in this area of medical tourism my staff and I have many resources available to assist with housing needs.  These homes typically offer patients and their accompanying friends or family a comfortable environment for their recovery.   Many patients have found this home rental option cost competitive with hotels while providing more comfort and freedom.   For those who prefer to be in a hotel we also have many references and access to some significantly discounted rates.   Phoenix is a great place to recover from your hip or knee replacement almost year around.  In the winter, spring, and fall walking outdoors for exercise is wonderful.  In the summer many homes have pools and my patients are allowed in the pool immediately after surgery.  Walking in the warm water has been very therapeutic for many and the families enjoy it too!

If you can’t get the care that you need close to home and are seeking other options I can help. Read more about hip and knee replacement as well as knee and shoulder arthroscopy. I look forward to helping you with your orthopedic problem.
