Has anyone here had any experience with River Medical in N.I. or the R.O.I.?
I originally was looking at Dr. Karidis
for surgery, but as I will be needing to borrow money off my father for the surgery, I'm taking his input as well. He thought it would end up being much more expensive than getting it done locally, and suggested River Medical instead. I looked on their website, but they don't seem to have any before/after pictures and don't have a wealth of information it. I know it's quite a simple surgery, but I'm hesitant to jump in with a place without a lot of evidence as to their previous surgeries, as I'm quite worried about scar tissue. I don't know how much this really comes down to the surgeon though, maybe I'm overestimating their importance.
Although, I know the standard price for Dr. Karidis
is around £4/5000, and really I think it would be the same at River Medical, that seems to be a general price. That said, I know there would be extra costs involved with having it one abroad, and I know this would bring up other problems.
So just asking really, if anyone has dealt with River Medical and can offer any review? Also your thoughts on whether it's worth travelling to someone who is seen as the top surgeon, or better to have it done without boarding a plane and that additional stress.
