Medical Tourism: More Efficient and Affordable Ear Nose and Throat Surgery at Apollo Hospitals, India. Rajeev Rameth is an engineer project lead and department head for Atkins Middle East and India .While residing in London for several years he suffered from chronic nasal obstruction, diagnosed as hay fever by his UK physicians. Hay fever during winter is not normal so I knew it was not just hay fever, said Rameth. My nasal passage each morning was air tight. Only after a couple of hours would my speech be normal and not until in the afternoon would I be able to breathe easily. It was a poor quality of life. While on a recent assignment in Bangalore, India, Rameth consulted Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist Dr. Kumaresh Krishnamoorthy. [http://www.drkumaresh.com/profile.html]. My initial impression was that he is very thorough, speaks clearly, and his explanation and diagnosis were very convincing, said Rameth,He asked to take a CT scan of my nose immediately. The efficiency with which the physician could schedule the CT scan and discuss the results with the patient speaks volumes about the advantages of trusted medical tourism destinations like the Apollo Hospital chain in India. “Within five minutes the CT was scheduled, reports Rameth, “and I only waited about an hour before the doctor was able to review the scan results with me and show me exactly what was causing my problem. According to Rameth, none of the physicians he consulted in London ever suggested a CT scan. He described his medical care in UK as It didn't go well there. I don't know how it is in America, said Rameth, but in the UK maybe if I faint and they take me to the hospital they might take a CT scan but because I am healthy and fit they say it's just hay fever.On May 22, Rameth had Laser Turbinoplasty performed by Dr. Krishnamoorthy at Apollo Hospital in Bangalore, India. The surgery cost less than $2,000 (US) including the overnight stay in the hospital for tests run to make sure he was fit for the day surgery. The cost of the procedure and hospitalization was covered by his company insurance through International SOS [http://www.internationalsos.com]. The result so far is really fantastic, reports Rameth,I can intake as much air as I wish through my nose. The velocity is really good.
