India continues to draw American patients for affordable obesity surgery. Recently a patient Abigail from Sydney underwent a lap band by Forerunners Healthcare Consultants. Says Abigail-"I had always been a vibrant, outgoing person who loves life. My weight became more and more of a limitation on my activities and social life. Seatbelts on planes were too tight and made traveling an embarrassing situation. Sporting events were no longer feasible because I could not fit in the chairs. Concerts were a thing of the past, for the same reason. I tried for a year or so to diet and exercise, with no success. I could barely climb a flight of stairs without having to rest, my knees constantly ached, my resting heart rate was astronomical, and I was only 23.

I would do well for maybe a month or two, but I always got frustrated and quit. At this point I started looking into surgical weight loss procedures and decided that the Lap-Band procedure was probably my best bet. After a few months of researching I met a lady who had gone for lap band surgery in India through Forerunners Healthcare Consultants. And I decided that this was the same path I wanted to follow. I am thrilled with the results of my surgery and would recommend India to anyone looking for obesity surgery.The quality of care, and the exceptional personal touch is second to none. I saved lots of money having my surgery in India and I now feel and look great, and have bags more confidence. Cost differences are enormous. I had to shell out only one tenth of the cost that I could have to in the Australia for lap band surgery in India"

Patients find it easier to pay out of pocket than claim insurance. These surgical options are attractive and patients are lining up to have their obesity surgery performed in India.

An added attraction at the successful conclusion of their surgery is recuperation in nearby resorts and spas. This added comfort mitigates to some extent the absence of loved ones by their side during recovery. At the conclusion of successful treatment, patients can choose to tour more of India before retuning home. The charms of Kerala's back waters, the idyllic Emerging collapse of Medicare in the US and the NHS in the UK are forcing ordinary folk to seek obesity surgery in India.
