1. How do I know which is the right hospital for me? How do I review/assess a hospital?
Following things can help patients find the best hip replacement hospital in India:
• Is the hospital certified to provide healthcare facilities by a government organization (NABH or JCI)?
JCI (Joint Commission International) is an international association that has determined the standards for medical care providers that help in protecting the patients.
NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare) is a similar association that analyses the quality of treatment provided by Indian hospitals.
• How is the infrastructure of the hospital? Hip Replacement surgery requires a hospital stay of 5 to 7 days making it important that patient feels comfortable with the services and the infrastructure of the hospital. We recommend patients to explore the gallery of the hospitals before making their final choice.
• Is the hospital equipped with the technology required for the surgery? It is important that the hospital has the resources to allow the surgeon to perform a successful surgery. Patients should seek a second opinion before a major surgery like hip replacement, that will help them explore new surgical techniques which can potentially cause less damage and result in speedier recover.
• What are the qualifications of the surgeon? How much experience does the doctors and staff at the hospital have? Experience and qualifications play an important role in determining the quality of treatment delivered by a healthcare professional, so ensure to read the career profile of doctors carefully.
