Carol had been on the wait list for knee surgery in Canada for months. With class four arthritic knees, the pain had become so severe that she could hardly walk. Although Canada’s public health system covers the cost of knee surgery, Carol decided to jump to the front of the queue and travel to Mexico for a knee replacement through medical facilitator My Orthopedic Vacations.
After witnessing the success of her husband’s knee replacement surgery
through My Orthopedic Vacations (MOV)
, Carol decided to talk to her doctor about the possibility of surgery for herself. The doctor quickly recognized her need for a knee replacement and placed her on a wait list for surgery. When the simple task of walking became too painful to bear, Carol decided not to wait. She booked an orthopedic vacation through MOV and traveled to Cancun, Mexico
for new knees. One of Carol’s biggest concerns about visiting a hospital in Mexico was cleanliness. But when she arrived at Playamed Hospital
in Cancun, she was immediately relieved to find a spotless and exceptionally clean facility. Carol found her orthopedic surgeon to be top class and after the surgery was introduced to her own physiotherapist Cynthia. She was taken through stretches to help recovery and had regular TENS machine treatment to help with healing. Carol was more than satisfied with her accommodation at the hotel Laquita with every facility needed for relaxation and recovery- including a pool and a hot tub. The hotel was located close to everything and MOV would take Carol and her husband wherever they wanted to go, whenever they wanted to go there.

“I’d just like to say to people in Canada that this has been an exceptional experience. If they are waiting on the list in Canada and want to get their knees done sooner, talk to My Orthopedic Vacations and improve your quality of life. I want to do so much more in my life, and this was one way to help me do that.”
