Cannot afford hip surgery in us. What would happen if I go to india for it?

Not good. Many of india's best doctors come here and even then only 50-60% maybe less can pass the licensing test that 93% of us docs pass. U have no recourse if something goes wrong and no idea what they will do for u if it does go bad. U may want to look at conservative measures like wt loss and glucosamine for now. Soon u will be required to buy health insurance by law and then have the surgery.
