Medical Tourism for Knee & Joint Replacement Patients @ Bone & Joint Center

SurgiNovi in cooperation with the Bone & Joint Centre, has a value proposition to present to the international and local, Tourism companies. SurgiNovi has a medical tourism business model to solve a recurring problem in the American, European, African, Gulf and Arab countries. The cost of a Total knee/hip replacement operation ranges from $50-65K in the USA, to 7-10K Sterlings in the UK, to similar 7-10K Euro in Europe, and around 150K Dirhams in the UAE, while being inaccessible in African and Arab remote regions. SurgiNovi, PSI & custom surgical guides technology allows all these regions to benefit from such efficient & rather cheap technology.

Who we are?

•SurgiNovi is specialized in using Computer-aided Techniques, in surgery, with a focus on bone & joints.

•SurgiNovi designs & produces surgical guides & instruments, to help surgeons in planning & implementation of surgery.

•Our aim is to improve accuracy, function & long-term outcome.

•We have extensive experience in using our techniques in total knee replacement with laboratory & clinical validation.

•This experience is now extended to other joints like, shoulder, spine & hip surgery.

•We also have our preliminary results in using our technology for the production of cases-specific knee prosthesis for Canine.

Problem we solve;

•Invasive, expensive and limited market for joint replacement (arthroplasty).
1.Conventional arthroplasty techniques are invasive, the patient takes minimum 12 weeks for recovery.

2.Expensive arthroplasty procedures, surgical kit costs $25K, plus added cost, sterilization, logistics, highly specialized training, and inventory costs.

3.Inoperable conditions, and easy cases, still rarely operate, bilaterally.

Value Proposition;

•Less invasive, less expensive and unlimited market for joint replacement (arthroplasty).
(Conventional arthroplasty techniques are invasive, the patient takes minimum 12 weeks for recovery. PSI 3 weeks recovery.

•Robotics CAOS is expensive

•Less pre-operation waiting time, faster recovery and lesser cost.

•Number of PSI Companies period 2015 – 2018, increased from 20 to 63 companies

Added Value;

•Product / Service is Patient Specific Instruments ( PST and PSI).

•Custom orthopedic surgical guides.

•Fully developed, with 14 modifications.
• ISO 13485:2016 and ISO 9001:2015 quality system standards are applied in all production related activities and process operations.

Benefits of PSI

Minimally invasive as it does not violate medullary canal, short operative time, short hospital stay & early recovery.

Less bleeding & less risk of blood transfusion.

The technique is good for complex cases that cannot be done by conventional techniques.

Can be used for bilateral knee replacement: 90 % of our cases are done bilateral

Scientific papers;

  1.     Egyptian Community arthroplasty register (>1000 cases): 
    
  2.     A study on Blood transfusion: Rate was 5% for unilateral & 16 % for bilateral, as compared to 100 % for bilateral using conventional technique,
    
  3.     A study on operative time: It was less than conventional
    
  4.     A study on 200 bilateral simultaneous TKR for OA with severe articular deformities (>10 degrees): For PSI: Hospital stay 4 days, operative time reduced from 30-50 % & walking within hours from surgery & less complication rate
    
  5.     A study comparing conventional, navigational & PSI techniques on 150 TKR: PSI accuracy is comparable with navigation but PSI has the shortest operative time & is the least expensive
    

There are 14 award winning patents for PSI technique;

  1.     UK Alumni Award Entrepreneurial Award, British Council, Cairo, Egypt, 2017 & 2018
    
  2.     Semifinalist for Business Plan Competition for Innovations, Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS), USA, 2018
    
  3.     Gold Medals with Distinction from Geneva inventions, Switzerland 2014 & 2016
    
  4.     IFIA Laurel of 4th World Cup of Computer Implemented inventions from International Federation of Inventors Associations (IFIA), Hungary 2014
    
  5.     Hap Paul award ISTA, USA 2010
    

Bone & Joint Centre is offering packages ranging from 4-5K, for the surgery and 4 day hospital stay for recovery, this can be coupled with custom tour programs, visiting local touristic sites in Egypt, before and after the operation. There are possibility also to add 1 month personalized physiotherapy program, with extra cost.
We are willing to cooperate with corporate and non-corporate entities, that are able to market in the USA, Europe and Gulf regions to attract knee & hip replacement surgery patients, that coward from overpriced operation fees and the long waiting lists, for CT scans and joint replacement operations.

Please contact me in case you have interest, in cooperation, or have a patient or need more information.
