Bahamas Medical Center and our excellent Orthopedic Surgery Program Hi, my name is Dr. Dane Bowe. I’m an orthopedic surgeon with training
in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I did five years in residency training
there and one year fellowship in arthroplasty — specifically total hip
and total knee replacements. I’m happily married to Dr. Colleen Fitzcharles who is a plastic
surgeon. We love The Bahamas. We spent many years abroad, but
decided to come back home because The Bahamas to us is that one of the
greatest places in the world. We have sunshine three hundred and sixty
five days of the year. We love the outdoor life. There’s lots of water sports, specifically with me and I love to go fishing. For those avid golfers we have
some of the best golf courses in the world as well. Most of my patients come to see me for hip and knee problems. A lot have torn menisci which is the
cartilage in the knee. I do arthroscopic surgery so this could
be easily be done as an outpatient procedure. Bahamas Medical Center has the
facilities available to do this and patients are easily admitted. to the facility and discharged within an
hour or two after the procedure. Patients with arthritis not relieved with pain medicines or cortical steroids injections usually
seek advice from individuals like myself. These individuals are candidates for total
knee replacements. Total knee replacements in The Bahamas is the same as total knee replacement in North America vis-a-vis Canada or United
States of America. The operation usually lasts about seventy
minutes, by the time is the patient is admitted to the time the patient is discharged to
the recovery room. At the Bahamas Medical Center we can
offer up to our patients a savings of anywhere from 20 to 40 percent
when compared to our North American counterparts. We are willing to pick you up at the
airport, bring you to the center, keep all of your appointments, introduce you to the necessary doctors. So, at the Bahamas Medical Center we offer the same quality care as our North American counterparts. Our patients can have the
same services offered, as well as enjoy The Bahamas as a
vacation after they’ve had their complex operation. The Bahamas has it all… leading healthcare specialists,
world-class resorts, stunning beaches, international dining, shopping, spa treatments, and the kind of
personal care and attention that makes you feel completely at home even when
you’re away from home. Better weather, better healthcare and
better prices. Why not choose to get better in The Bahamas? Come, get better in The Bahamas!
