Overweight Briton Underwent Successful Surgery In India Being Denied By NHS

A Briton underwent a successful life-changing operation in India and returned home satisfied, after being denied by National Health Service (NHS), for being// overweight.

David Rogers, 62, from Abbeydale, Worcestershire, was told by the NHS that he was too overweight for the double hip and knee replacements that he desperately needed. Weighing almost 140 kg, he was told that he was about 37 kg too heavy for the surgery.

"I can't speak more highly of the nurses and surgeons there. The treatment I received was first class," said Rogers.
