My mother was experiencing problems with some level of pain and a lack of mobility in one hip. Locally she was advised that she could not have the appropriate treatment for 22 months . At eighty years of age that was a poor option.
We were advised to contact Nordorthapaedics.
The clinic was comparable to any private facility in the UK.
Everything about the experience at Nordorthapaedics was positive. Everything from our first contact to our journey home was professionally managed by a team of courteous individuals. I would thoroughly recommend this service.
The whole experience was excellent from making travel arrangements, all the pre-operation checks, making the payment. The clinic was so well run beautifully clean and the staff were marvellous. I would highly recommend taking a few days at the rehabilitation center as the post-op treatment received was outstanding and a great aide to recovery. I received every day physio, massage, hot and cold treatment, things that you wouldn’t get on the NHS. I can highly recommend having the operation in Lithuania it truly was a memorable experience.
Hi, I'm Ronnie Kelly from Randalstown, Northern Ireland. From my initial inquiry Jurate at Nordorthopaedics was fantastic answering all my question almost immediately. I booked the flights, gave her the dates and the rest was plain sailing. Everything was organised with professional precision.
From being met at the airport, to surgery, to recovery at rehabilitation center and back to the airport every detail was covered with constant emails and messages.
I couldn't recommend this Clinic and Rehabilitation Centre any higher for its total professionalism and after care.
Th clinic looked almost too good to be true but everything they claim is accurate. The care I received from the physician and nursing staff was very caring and excellent. Also there is the option for aftercare at a rehab facility that I highly recommend. It gives you time to recover from the surgery before the long flight home. The customer service representative Jurate is very efficient and will promptly answer any questions you have. Canada may seem like a long way from Lithuania but I feel it was totally worth the trip and I am planning to go back and have the other hip replaced.
This is very simple because I recommend everything about nordorthopaedics. Firstly the administration staff are very professional and helpful with any problems you may have,and I would especially mention Aurelija along with her colleague Jurate for their attention to detail. Travelling to a different country can be daunting but the trip is carefully planned with collection from airport, transport to hotel and clinics.
The clinics and rehabilitation center are of the highest quality and all the staff, nurses and doctors are really caring and helpful.
Everything from airport to being picked up , hotel , hospital , loved it all it was the best decision I ever made , I tell everyone here in Ireland about it , I had the whole thing organised with Agnes help in four weeks , staff at hospital fabulous , care fabulous , doctor and anethnetist fabulous , honestly have nothing but good to say . If I need another hip I’ll be there in a heartbeat I’d never wait years here at home never . Thank you all
My experience from beginning to end was one of the utmost pleasure. Not just my own surgery, rotator cuff repair but that of a fellow patient who was up and walking within hours after knee surgery. All made possible by the administration staff, nursing staff and the highly qualified surgeons. Nordorthapaedic deserve a gold medal for their obvious high standards. I award them one as such.
After searching the web for a suitable clinic it was an obvious choice to select this clinic. And how happy am I that I did. The high standards of cleanliness and professional care shine out.
Having been rejected by the NHS I chose to look abroad for my options. My friends all thought I was mad to consider Lithuania, nothing could be further from the truth. From my initial contact phone call I have experienced the highest standards of professionalism and service throughout . I must declare that I am quite a tough person to satisfy as I have had a career as a Quality Management Consultant and auditing suppliers. The clinic is first class. It is equal to any private hospital in the uk.
I would wholeheartedly recommend the clinic to anyone in a similar position.
I recently had a total hip replacement at Nordorthopedics. The whole experience from the initial contact through to the rehabilitation treatment was flawless, Dr Saraunas Tarasevicius and all at the hospital were unbelievably open and efficient, putting any doubts at rest. I was up and walking with crutches the day after surgery. At the rehabilitation centre the aftercare resulted in being able to walk 2 miles with 1 crutch by the time I left for home 9 days after surgery. Jurate deserves a special mention for organising almost every aspect, nothing seemed to be much trouble. I cannot recommend Nordorthopaedics enough.
