    Lots of people have gone to India or any number of other countries for various kinds of surgery. It's nothing new. I can say there's no possible way I'd travel to a third world country for major surgery though, no matter how good the surgeons are. What happens three, six, 12 months later if you have complications? Who yuh gonna call? Not to mention the expense of getting there and back and staying there for however long it takes to recover.
