SOME OF THE PATIENTS
ASSISTED BY POONAM FOR THEIR SURGERY IN INDIA
Bent Larsen from Denmark who
got operated for Microdiscectomy Surgery (Spine Surgery)
I found out that I needed an operation
for a back problem which was causing severe pain to
my left leg from the sciatic nerve. After speaking
to my consultant and realizing I was getting nowhere
I decided to take the matter into my own hands as
I could hardly walk. After speaking to private consultants
and realizing that without private medical insurance
I was not going to be seen to in this country without
shelling out a lot of money, I decided to look elsewhere.
I decided to look into having the operation privately
done in India and was fortunate to come across Poonam
Mathur of Forerunners Healthcare. She sent rapid
replies to my e-mails and assisted me at every step.
Within 3 weeks I was in India having the operation
done. My back has been great ever since and I can
not thank Poonam from Forerunners
Healthcare-India enough for the attention given
to me and my wife during our stay in India. The hospital
was incredible and again the attention given was second
to none. As for cost I did the whole trip with first
class flights, family run guest house accommodation,
medical treatment and Incidentals for much less as
compared to the cost of the operation in Denmark.
I highly recommend going to India for medical treatment
highly. I wouldn't hesitate to go back If I had need
for more medical treatment.
Mr and Mrs Moeller from Denmark
who both underwent Cosmetic Surgery In India.

rare and valuable individual, a true artist of the human
body. He respects and recognizes the fact that every
one is unique (having different shapes and sizes) and
tends to each different goal and expectation with careful
attention. Poonam was available to us through the entire
treatment process and the care that we were getting
in India. From the calls to the consultation, to the
surgery to the follow-ups, every single person of Forerunners
Healthcare has been a complete pleasure to work with.
I am thankful to Poonam and the
