Robert Walter Beeney was not competent to walk due to a stiff hip when he landed in India January 24. Twenty days afterward, he not only improved after a atypical hip substitution surgery at Apollo Hospital here but also visited the famous Tag Mahan in Agra after that. So India is now becoming well known for its medical tourism.

The 64-year-old real estate expert from San Francisco underwent flourishing surface substitution surgery using the anatomic surface replacement (ASR) hip system January 27, purportedly becoming the first US national to come to India for the cure.

A medical team of doctors, headed by orthopaedic surgery treatment specialist Vijay Bose, sustained the procedure for Beeney.

Jayaramchander Pingle, a member of the medical team, told a news seminar that while in the usual hip replacement surgery, the total hip was replaced, in the new system, the patient's unique head and neck of femur were conserved and only their surface is replaced with metal on metal enunciation.
