Last summer I was in terrible pain and needed a hip replacement. My orthopedist quoted $45,000 in Miami and I don’t have health insurance. My only choice was to live with it for five years until Medicare kicks in. Guatemala Medical Travel found me an excellent surgeon as well as cheap airline tickets. I paid for all the travel expenses, surgery, physical therapy and three weeks recovering at “Casa Muriel” without even maxing out my credit card. I’m so grateful to finally be pain free – I know I could never get this sort of care at home.
