Review: hip replacement

Having fallen down, my mother aged 65 stopped walking because of the hip fracture.

We were recommended the replacement in Germany for about 15-20,000 EUR. My colleague told that the Czech Republic would be cheaper.

I contacted the medical center by myself and received the prices. All the procedures including the diagnostics cost 2 times cheaper.

After arriving we immediately noticed that the medical center was modern, the nurse and the doctor spoke Russian and the meals were quite good. It came out after the surgery that we could use the implant of Czech production, which would have been even cheaper.

My mom stood up on the second day after the surgery, and started walking in a week assisted by the walking stick.

The patient underwent hip replacement

Thanks to the great coordinator Maxim Privalov for organizing my trip to Prague for the operation, his professional advice greatly influenced my choice of the clinic for the operation of hip replacement. And now about the clinic of Malvazinka, I would like to express my gratitude to all the professional and benevolent staff of the clinic, especially Vladislav Goveraru, who operated me, the head of the department, Sergey Ryzhov, Dushan Bartosh, physiotherapist Market Trdlickova, doctors of the rehabilitation department. And also thanks for the support in the clinic for the coordinators of Vamed Irina and Olga, the translators Elena and Tatiana, thanks to their care, there were no problems during their stay. It was almost 3 months after the operation (October 20, 2017) and 2 months after discharge from the rehabilitation department of Malvazinka. I am very pleased with the results of the operation, the course of professional rehabilitation in the clinic (28 days), I continue rehabilitation at home every day for 1-1.5 hours doing exercises. Everyone who plans such operations, I recommend the clinic Malvazinki. P.S. If there is an opportunity to undergo a one-month rehabilitation course in the clinic, this really helps a faster recovery.

The patient underwent hip replacement

Very disappointed clinic Malvazinka, coordinators who do not perform their work in the clinic. The attitude of the doctors wants the best. I did not have the opportunity to talk to the operating surgeon., Not after the operation, nor before. Shov who promised 12-15 cm, turned out to be 25. Recommendations after rehabilitation, were not given. Even an elementary statement was issued without translation. Although coordinators of the clinic, they promised that the translation will be sent. It turned out that it was necessary to have it on. mesteplatit.Odnim word just kommercatsiya.Ne believe advertising, we are not particularly needed, our money is needed!

Response from the team working with foreign patients of the clinic Malvazinki:
"Good afternoon, dear Natalya. We hope that you and now are all well from a medical point of view, as well as when discharging from a hospital. And after a successful operation, you will postpone the crutches in a few weeks and forget about the pain while walking. After all, it is for this that you came to us and came! Yes, to save all the muscles and tendons in your physiological case, the doctor had to make a larger incision than usual, and if you could stay on the recommended rehabilitation after the removal of the sutures - it could be leveled with the skin by a medical laser.
We are very sorry that you were left with discontent with coordination, and we could not fulfill your expectations about a personal assistant 24 hours a day. According to the rules of the clinic, concierge-interpreters visit every patient for 1-2 hours a day to translate into Russian the doctor's visit and individual physiotherapy, as indicated in the operating programs. Once again, you are sent a postoperative reminder in Russian with instructions for postoperative measures and remind you to MUST register with an orthopedist for physical control at your place of residence up to 3 days after your discharge.
The translation of the statement will be sent to you by e-mail, and we apologize for the confusion caused by the introduction of a new European standard on the protection of patients' personal data. "

The patient underwent hip replacement

I went through the replacement of the hip joint in the MALVASINKA Clinic with subsequent rehabilitation from 18.03.2018 to 11.04.2018. After finding the house for 4 weeks, he systematized his initial and final impression. His stay and the quality of treatment, rehabilitation in the Clinic Malvazinki would like to appreciate in the following way: 1. PLUSES: - Excellent operating surgeon Vladislav Hospodar; - Excellent and very professionally attentive physiotherapist Dana Braxova; - Responsive nurses, especially Andrea. 2. MINUSES: BASIC FAT MINUS - ASSISTANCE OF CONSERVER TRANSFERS UNDER THE IMMEDIATE THE MANAGEMENT OF OLGA SKATKOVA (Olga SKATKOVA) - As it is written in one of the previous reviews - "Everything is almost fine before it paid off.  Then no one has anything to do with you! "- I absolutely agree, after leaving all my letters completely  were ignored by the concierge O. Skatkova, despite the status of "Delivered" and "Viewed." - In particular, the extract / anamnesis was issued without translation, although the coordinators of the clinic promised that  the translation will be sent in 2-3 days after discharge, without results, wait a month (!!!!!). After 3 weeks of waiting and inquiries received a short answer that they have "force majeure" without any specifics when the translation of the statement will be made, and the time allowed for the registration of the disability goes and it is not my dimensionless,  I no longer see the point in writing. A reference image sent after 6 weeks after the operation (on the recommendation of the clinic's specialists, to determine the progress of rehabilitation and the time when it will be possible to refuse crutches) was sent last week, just after a 6-week period, as ordered, see the result above - the status of the message to O. Skatkova "Delivered" and "Viewed" the reaction is ZERO. The subsequent reminder of the picture and the translation of the extract is still left without any answer. - If "According to the rules of the clinic, concierge-interpreters visit every patient for 1-2 hours a day for  translation into Russian of a doctor's visit and individual physiotherapy, "then there were days when they did not visit me at all or came to me  with a significant delay (in particular - Elena), which entailed the admission or reduction of rehabilitation procedures, changing the schedule, etc. - The rehabilitation is rather weak, at first there were only 2 procedures a day, physiotherapy individual and group, after my repeated  requests, during the third week of stay, more procedures were added, however it was already the final week and, for example, a massage duration of 10 minutes a session, was only 2 times for the entire period of rehabilitation. I recommend to all who plan treatment, to keep this moment under the control and remind the concierges about the need to add to the schedule of additional procedures, for some reason they themselves are not particularly concerned about this, despite the rather large, in general, cost of rehabilitation. Two of my friends have already refused treatment in this clinic, after my recall, in favor of German clinics, where although slightly and more expensive, but the services are performed in full and without extra reminders.

The patient underwent gastrointestinal examination

Services were provided only for 30% of the agreement. The refund was partially and only after proceedings. Without trial, the agency side of the incident was silent. The doctor did not look conscientiously and very short. He did not appoint any examinations. The only advice I received from Dr. Urbanek: "is that I can and do not eat what I can not, (given the fact that I have been sitting on a baby's diet for a year)," Excellent, advice! Thank you! For this it was worth to fly to the Czech Republic and pay money. I saw the disdainful attitude of the doctors and the enormous pressure from the administrative staff who served me. The trip was extremely dissatisfied and disappointed. I got the worst result that I could only imagine. As for the coordinator of Svetlana Kalishnichenko, she performs the work at the highest level. Very intelligent, professional person. It's very pleasant to work with her.

The patient was treated of uterine fibroids

Good morning! Since I was waiting for an operation for gynecology, I wanted to once again consult an independent opinion, so I turned to you. On arrival, I phoned with the medical consultant Lyudmila, met at the Motol clinic. Very quickly registered, along with the translator Ada passed to the doctor Roman Khmel. The doctor at first listened to me, then he examined the ultrasound. I was very surprised that my situation is not critical and the operation should not be rushed, but only observed. Thank you very much! Thanks to Lyudmila and Ada! Later I was sent to the post office for a check-up, on Monday I go to my doctor. It's such a joy, to avoid surgery! Thanks again!

The patient was treated of bladder cancer

The clinic, in the category "like - do not like", I can not evaluate. Meeting at the airport with an interpreter and transfer to the clinic - standard. Accommodation in the guest house, before the operation, leaves much to be desired. But, who is familiar with India, I do not think for special comfort and does not count, otherwise - to Germany. Immediately the next morning, without delay and delay, a primary appointment with doctors and diagnosis. Prices for a visit from doctors, examinations and tests are very reasonable, commensurate with Moscow or, even lower. Communication with doctors through an interpreter is somewhat difficult, but quite informative and understandable. Knowledge of English will remove all embarrassment, but in general - not critical. The attitude of doctors to the examination and refinement of the diagnosis is "meticulous". After five days - a summary and proposal for a treatment program. Hospitalization, surgery, 3 days in the intensive care unit and postoperative placement in a two-bed room (together with an attendant) for 12 days. And an extract. The level of training, skill and attitude of doctors, from my "ambitious" point of view of the accompanying person, is beyond praise !!! About the surgeon who performed the operation - DR. MURUGANANDHAM K, I want to say that he has "golden hands and heart" !!! The attitude of the average medical personnel, despite the language difficulties, is very friendly. In the intensive care unit was invited immediately after the operation and "woke up" the patient with me. Opening his eyes and seeing his native face after anesthesia - a person "comes alive"! Postoperative treatment and care in the ward are very worthy. Having repeated his own experience in hospitalization, I can not even compare. The account is not in our favor. In fact, treatment in the clinic saved life! This is especially evident now, a year after the treatment. A year ago, options were considered: Germany, Israel and India. In terms of price-quality ratio and recall of acquaintances have chosen treatment in India. And they were not mistaken. The clinic was selected by specialists of the site en.bookimed.com. They also provided a correlation and communication with the clinic. Huge thanks to them !!!

The patient was treated of kidney cancer

From the bottom of my heart I want to thank Professor Gross, as well as all the staff of the Asclepios clinic in Hamburg for their high professionalism, efficiency, sensitivity and attention to patients. About a month ago left an application on the site bookimed, within an hour I was contacted by coordinator Katerina, immediately offered several clinics specializing in oncourology. The choice fell on Asclepios in Hamburg, in particular, Professor Gross. Within a week, thanks to Katerina's efforts, prof. Gross, determined the tactics of treatment and already in a week there was immediate operation. There were some doubts that the nephrectomy could be performed laparoscopically, but the golden hands of prof. Gross know their business. The postoperative period went smoothly, recovered quickly. During the week of the stay, there were no complaints about the work of the staff: attentive, sensitive and affable. Conditions are more than comfortable. The language barrier was not a problem due to the well-coordinated work of the translators Lydia Goncharenko and Vladimir Fissenko. Separately, I want to once again express my gratitude to coordinator Katerina, who was always in touch, quickly resolved all sorts of difficulties.
