The patient was treated of leukemia

Doctors in Ukraine said that I probably had lymphocytic leukemia. The doctor had enough of one of my visits and several repeated analyzes to allay my fears.
In fact, it turned out - just an infection that has long been hidden in the body.
Clinic - the highest level. Doctor Peccatori - the highest competence!
Coordinators helped and resolved all issues, for which they thank you so much!
Now on serious issues I will address only in bookimed.

The patient was treated of arrhythmia

Excellent and prompt service. They told (without insisting) which hospital and which doctor to contact. Initially I planned a survey in South Korea, but on the recommendation of the Bookimed coordinator, I went to the Italian clinic of San Donato, to Dr. Carlo Pappone, and I have no regrets. Special thanks to Anton Volvak and the representative of the clinic San Donato, Julia. Paid directly to the clinic (after all procedures), the price is the same as reported by an employee bookimed. Bottom line: I recommend this service.

The patient was treated of prostate cancer

I am very grateful to Olga for her help. It promptly and autumn responded to all questions regarding receiving a foreign consultation - sending documents, choosing which clinic and doctor to choose, sharing personal experience, controlling and agreeing on time for consultation and being interested in its results, in general showed full cooperation and interest. Thank you!
The consultation itself went well - with the help of an interpreter, all the questions of interest were discussed with the professor from Germany, the main result - the exposure of the fact that the treatment is now proceeding in the right direction, also received from the professor some very important advice that did not appear in the consultations with Ukrainian doctors.

Heart surgery is performed when:

  • patient’s condition is getting worse: pain becomes unbearable, risk of heart attack increases;
  • if the state is already severe and regular medications don’t help;
  • patient shows signs of valve dysfunction.

Additional examinations, medications, or lifestyle changes may be prescribed to avoid undergoing the procedure. Valve repair is a preferable alternative to replacement since it allows to preserve the heart and the valve. The procedure is performed on the open heart with the use of heart-lungs bypass machine. The success rate of the operation is up to 92%.

Indications and contraindications for heart valve replacement

Physicians make a decision whether a patient needs valve replacement based on examination results. In case of the following conditions, a doctor may prescribe the valve replacement:

  • shortness of breath;
  • chest pain or discomfort;
  • arrhythmia;
  • loss of stamina;
  • lightheadedness;
  • dizziness;
  • swelling of feet or ankles.

Any patient with known heart issues must be cautious about above mentioned signs and perform check-ups whenever any of them manifest. Early diagnosis is crucial for this disease. Patients who are not aware of their condition, may suffer heart damage due to malfunctioning heart valves. This damage may lead to heart attacks, critical conditions and sudden death.

Contraindications for heart valve operation:

  • oncology;
  • conditions that predispose to bleeding (poor coagulation);
  • HIV;
  • severe infections (including STDs);
  • renal dysfunction.

Types of heart valve operation

Minimally invasive replacement operation

The operation is performed while a patient is under general anesthesia. Heart-lung machine is used to sustain blood flow during the procedure. Minimally invasive surgery is conducted by a team of cardiac surgeons. Physicians utilize long instruments and optical devices that are inserted through a small incisions in patient’s chest. The procedure puts patient's body under less stress and is considered less risky.

Minimally invasive surgery presumes shorter patient hospital stay and quicker recovery.

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR/TAVI)

TAVR is a minimally invasive replacement of aortic valve. Sometimes referred to as “implantation”(TAVI). A catheter is utilized in this procedure. During the operation surgeons reach patient’s heart through a small incision in the chest or through the vein. Once in position, replacement valve is either self installed or expanded and set with a balloon. TAVR is used in patients who are at high risk of surgery-related complications. TAVR is also applied for biological valves replacement.

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement

Replacement of the heart valve (operation on the open heart)

In cases when patient’s valve cannot be repaired, a replacement becomes viable. Damaged valve is removed and replaced with the mechanical or biological one. Biological valves are made of cow, pig, or human heart tissue. Biological valves degrade over time, so there will be a need for a replacement in 10-15 years.

Patients with mechanical valves need to take blood-thinning medicine for the rest of their lives to prevent formation of blood clots.

Surgeons will discuss all the details related to the valve type before the operation, including valve replacement surgery cost. Biological valves can be replaced utilizing catheters, without the need of open heart surgery.

Heart valve repair

Valve repair operation is always chosen over the replacement. This procedure may include:

  • stitching holes in a valve;
  • separating valve flaps that have grown together;
  • tightening annulus muscle ring around the valve;
  • replacement of supporting cords of the valve;
  • reconnecting valve flaps;
  • cutting out excess valve tissue.

Some procedures may be carried out with the use of catheter, guided through patient’s artery. For example, narrowed valve opening is treated with balloon valvuloplasty. During this operation, a balloon attached to the catheter is guided to the narrowed valve. The balloon is then inflated, expanding the valve and allowing blood to pass freely.

Preoperative preparation

Before the operation a patient undergoes standard examinations:

  • ECG;
  • blood and urine tests;
  • chest x-ray.

Patients shouldn’t smoke 2 weeks before the operation, as it increases the risk of complications.

If the operation is not minimally invasive, a patient is administered general anesthesia and connected to heart-lungs bypass machine. After that, the repairs or replacements are done. When it’s over, the heart is started and a patient is disconnected from heart-lung bypass.

The operation takes 2-5 hours to complete, but may take longer if additional procedures are required.

Rehabilitation

Recovery

After the operation, a patient spends first 1-3 days in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). In-hospital postoperative stay lasts for up to 2 weeks. Physicians may assign a special exercise regimen or rehabilitation program to a patient. During hospital stay patient’s vitals are constantly monitored, any pain syndromes are treated with anabolics, and antibiotics are issued if any signs of infection manifest.

Recovery period varies depending on patient’s overall health state. On average, patients can return to non-physically demanding work 4-6 weeks after the operation.

Home care

Patients are usually dismissed from the hospital 2 weeks after the operation. Physicians recommend commiting to 150 minutes of exercise weekly. It is also advisable that a patient quits smoking and/or drinking. Bad habits are known to reduce replaced valve’s life time and cause complications.

If a patient has received mechanical valve, they should take blood-thinning medicine. Any doctor should be notified about that fact because thinned blood has greater potential for passing infections. Before performing any operations that may cause bleeding, patients need to be administered special antibiotic.

Outlook

The operation is considered low-risk and doesn’t put organism under too much stress. Patients must always stay on lookout for possible signs of heart valve malfunction, because there is a little chance that replaced valve will fail. Usually it happens with biological valves 10-15 years after the operation. The symptoms are typical for heart valve malfunction and include fatigue, short breath, and lightheadedness. In such cases it is advisable to undergo another operation.

Heart valve replacement surgery cost

Heart valve replacement cost is influenced by the following factors:

  • Type of conducted operation. Minimally invasive mitral valve replacement costs more than procedures on the open heart. Heart valve surgery cost also depends on whether a valve will be repaired or replaced.
  • Type of replacement valve. Biological valve replacement cost differs from mechanical aortic valve replacement cost.
  • Patient condition. Tavr procedure cost may increase due to prolonged hospital stay. TAVR cost may also increase due to any additional received medicines.
  • Additional operation. In some cases it may be viable to perform two operations in succession. For example, additional stenting or bypass surgery will increase mitral valve surgery cost.
  • Hospital location. Heart valve repair surgery cost in the USA is 2-3 times higher than in India or Turkey.

How to receive valve replacement abroad?

Submit a request on Bookimed website and our Medical Coordinator will contact you at earliest notice. You will receive answers to all questions regarding cost of mitral valve replacement surgery, what type of procedure is suitable for you, etc. We will also help you to pick the best hospital for heart valve replacement surgery and process all your paperwork. If needed, you will receive assistance in acquiring of visa and transfer.

How much does Heart Valve Replacement cost ?

Doctors calculate the cost of the Heart Valve Replacement individually for each patient. The price may depend on the hospital's reputation and doctor's experience. You may get the final Heart Valve Replacement cost only after the consultation with a doctor.

50 clinics are represented in the ranking. According to their data, the approximate Heart Valve Replacement cost is:

  • The average cost is $21,100. The lowest price is $5,300 and the highest — $50,000.

It is possible and simple. Why do I advise everyone interested in this particular clinic?

We contacted Bookimed for help in organizing an angiosurgeon consultation (for the operation) and duplex scanning of the brachiocephalic arteries. Thanks to the professional help of the Bookimed employee, Svetlana Kalinichenko picked up the clinic in Vilnius "Kardiolita", and the date of the survey was set. In connection with the change of plans, it was necessary to change the date of the survey. In the morning, the date was transferred and on the same day we got an appointment with the specialist we needed! Many thanks to Svetlana and all the employees of Bookimed. Good luck in your noble cause and health!

The patient was treated of breast cancer

Doctors of the clinic are qualified, speak English well. But the organization of treatment, that is, all these coordinators and translators already when you are in India, is a huge minus of the process. Simply huge. Expectations of everything and everywhere for hours, sometimes at times, poor awareness, a terrible accent on Russian, that one can understand a lot to the exact opposite, ignorance of medical terms, that is, only life can translate. I accompanied mamutna treatment, I speak English a little, therefore something accelerated due to this. One patient should not go, look for an accompanying person if other countries do not fit the prices for treatment. If someone is traveling alone or an accompanying person does not know English, the process will spoil your nerves. The very examination and treatment, surgery, everything is at a good level. But before the ability to organize everything painlessly for the patient, it will still come to BLK not soon. I do not know, as in other clinics in India, I think it's the same. Translators are different here, and the problems are the same. So in the whole country I think. But if there is no way out, you can entrust local doctors to the health. The patient is well fed in the hospital and the accompanying person. Chambers of any size isolate the patient with curtains around the perimeter, you see only the staff, but keep in mind that the multiple rooms are very noisy. Who prays in Arabic for the whole room, who sings the song, who plays the game with sound effects, who is screaming on the phone, because there is still no silence, people still have groans for the illnesses of people ... they do not do anybody for unconnected phones, loud talks and other inadequacy.

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 equipment is good, modern. Doctors and attendants are attentive and highly qualified. I passed a survey course and a number of specialist consultations. At the time when I was there, I was advised not to rush into the operation, as the state of health is at the stage of improvement. If they were interested in pumping money from me, then they would recommend urgently to do it, which indicates their objectivity. The only problem with finding there was an unusual food for me. But this is someone who, like someone who loves spicy, peppery and a lot of seasonings.

The trouble comes suddenly. I want to tell you how ordinary people helped me to survive, who came to my grief with participation. So, a blossoming woman, cheerful cheerful energetic, who has so many plans and dreams would have to go to the next world. When diagnosed in Ukraine, this is the case. But. People do not believe. if in time and good medicine in the world it is cured. Throw everything change, all that is for life. I turned to Bukimed. I was immediately called back and suggested where to go to be treated. This is an oncology center in Turkey, Anadolu, which is built by Americans ... works on American protocols based on their modern achievements and technologies ... Best oncologists, Turkey. I was lucky to be seen with the most important oncologist in Turkey. Medicine in Anadol is 100 orders of magnitude higher than ours. During the whole time I was accompanied by a team of support for translators headed by Gul Ababey. All household difficulties, transfers, daily delivery to the hospital and accommodation were included in the program. People are very polite and respectful. And most importantly, they are doctors so set up that you do not want, but will survive. There is confidence in the future. The main thing to live, and the difficulties are still ahead, treatment, rehabilitation, etc. Thank you very much to Christina (accompanying in Ukraine, which quickly organized everything.)

The patient was treated in this clinic

Good afternoon! Last year, there was a health problem (oncology). Operation, chemistry, irradiation. In June of this year, I decided to undergo a survey abroad. I found Katerina Kochergan in Kiev (a medical curator from Bukimed). There were thoughts of going either to Israel or to India. Katya was able to convince me that we must fly to Turkey (clinic Anadolu). After some reflection, I agreed, since everything turned out to be much cheaper than Israel and India. I liked that the clinic works according to American protocols and the method of treatment of Johns Hopkins. Katya connected me with the curator of the clinic Gul Ababey, who booked the hotel in advance, ordered a transfer, wrote to the doctors and to the examination. In general, I want to very recommend this clinic. You will find quality, service, reasonable prices, warm caring environment. Thank you very much Katya Kochergan and Gul Ababey !!!

The patient was treated of sarcoma

Faced with serious health problems in May-June 2014 and without full medical assistance in Belarus, I turned to Tel Aviv Medical Center of Suraski.



The first thing that surprised me was that no more than 3 days passed from the moment I placed my application for treatment to the invitation from the center, and a week later I was already in Tel Aviv.



All diagnostic procedures and consultations of experts were appointed in the shortest possible time, which is especially important for medical tourists, because roads are spent every day not at home. And of course, this is the merit of the medical tourism department.



My treatment in Israel took six months. During this time, I had two courses of chemotherapy, two operations, many procedures and consultations, each of which was accompanied by a member of the medical tourism department, providing translation services and simply supporting me at a difficult time for me. During these six months, I had to go to the clinic and in an emergency, and the fact that I was issued directly to the hospital without intermediaries greatly simplified many organizational issues.



The effectiveness of my treatment provided not only the overall high level of Israeli medicine and the professionalism of doctors, but also the assistance of medical center staff.

The patient was treated of brain tumor

My name is Olga, I turned to Bookimed in a state of total despair. My husband found a brain tumor, he consulted in Moscow and he was told that trepanation and removal is necessary. He also found a firm for medical tourism in Israel and asked for advice on his problem and was extremely discouraged by the answer that it is impossible to operate in any case, from the outset there should be radiation. Also found a mediator organizing treatment in Germany, but in this case even worse: the answer had to wait for 3 weeks "surgery is absolutely impossible," the estimates were not met, but the irradiation was also suggested, but "we'll see." In complete despair from the fact that tactics are not understood at all: I do the operation on the Internet or not ?, I found the Bookimed on the Internet, I was quickly answered, talked with Maxim Privalov, he is a very tactful professional, promptly arranged the examination of our mr and kt in the medical center of Ichilov the best neurosurgeon in Israel, Zvi Rama and Dr. Bukshtein. The next day the head of the department for the reception of foreign patients called me and so detailed told me everything about our problem that I had neither a shadow of doubt in terms of treatment tactics, and then by e-mail sent a letter in which it was also determined in detail: what should to do in what sequence, cost, questions about accommodation, etc. I am very grateful to these people for their professionalism!

The patient was treated of stomach cancer

In Russia, stomach cancer of the 4th stage was diagnosed with metastases, the operation was refused and offered chemotherapy with a standard set of drugs allowed for our polyclinics.
After sitting in the queue all day waiting for a chemotherapist, I saw an incredible hopelessness of everything that was happening: a large queue of patients, indifference and lack of advice from the doctor, no shadow of hope.
With this diagnosis, fear is compressed, but with this attitude kills.
I want to hope that only I have come across such a reality, God forbid this to others.
My relatives searched for alternative treatment abroad, through joint efforts, through acquaintances and the Internet, we came to contact the clinic in Israel "Ichilov".
After a telephone conversation with the clinic, the final decision was made to go to Israel for treatment.
In Israel, many similar medical institutions, but only similar ones, as it turned out later, it was Ichilov who is dealing with complex and problematic oncology issues that others can not cope with. Skeleton of professional doctors is formed by Ichilov, because the clinic has a scientific and practical center, the task of which is to increase the potential for effective treatment. My first impression when meeting with the clinic and its staff is the atmosphere of cordiality and desire to help, no one promises the impossible, a real picture of the problems and a plan for how to act.
It makes no sense to speak and compare the service of Russian medical services and foreign, it is not comparable, everything here is envisaged for a person to recover, not to mention the staff and his attitude towards the sick. There are no problems with ignorance of a foreign language, the Russian curator solves all these problems, and a significant part of personnel from Russia or the former Soviet republics. It should be noted that the medical center of Ichilov is a whole city with many buildings of different treatment directions and a corresponding service infrastructure.
Returning to the issue of treatment, I want to note one aspect, in my opinion, important, this is the quality of drugs in the course of treatment. Russian medicine can offer at best such (or generics), which does not improve the treatment.
Passing treatment in Israel, in the clinic Ichilov, there is hope for the future.
Many thanks to all the staff of the clinic.
God bless you.

The patient underwent check-up

Passed the examination in the clinic, I was pleasantly surprised that there was no feeling at all that I was in the hospital, the level of service was top notch, all the tests were carried out as quickly and efficiently as possible. I also want to note that I was met at the airport, the driver and translator Olga, who accompanied me all the time of the survey, and then was taken to the airport. I am glad that I am healthy! I express my gratitude to the doctors of the clinic for their professionalism, and the staff of the clinic for organizing a quick and competent examination, Tamila

The patient underwent artificial insemination (ivf)

I want to share my experience of treatment in Turkey thanks to the site Bookimed.com, to which I came out quite by accident, but it's not for nothing that they say that nothing in life happens by accident!

I left the application at Bookimed.com and in just 30 minutes the coordinator called back to me. We discussed all the issues and I was offered several versions of the clinics. Together with the coordinator, we selected the clinic that suited us, to which the references and results of my unsuccessful treatment were sent.

A few days later I was given an answer from the clinic and sent an invitation. After that I just got ready and flew in. About what for a second I do not regret!

I want to thank my coordinators, the professionals of my case, Kristina Zadorozhnaya and Sofia Shenochak for prompt assistance in arranging our visit, in resolving many questions regarding treatment and just for moral support.

I was very lucky with the doctor Dr. Selman Lachin, who performed the operation very professionally and at the highest level. Already on the 2nd day after the operation I felt well, and on the 5th day I returned home!

Therefore, based on my experience I want to advise people who are afraid to fly to a foreign country and are afraid of the unknown .. take a chance, fly, and real professionals will help you find and fix the problem.

I am very grateful to the site Bookimed.com and my doctor for everything!

The patient was treated in this clinic

When a terrible insidious disease (which previously was even feared in the depths of consciousness) suddenly (!) Declares (after a biopsy) in full, masterfully about its location in your living organism, you involuntarily embrace the chilling horror. No! That's not mine! These analyzes - the verdict - are clearly strangers, apparently, they were confused in the laboratory ... Alas!



But soon, after not one sleepless night, the key in my head is the sacramental question "What should I do ?!" And now a passionate desire arises - to struggle! Be-be-be! And here it is extremely important to choose a reliable medical ally, a savior's friend, who, in fact, you trust the most precious thing that God has given and the parents - LIFE.



From the trilemma - Russia, Germany or Israel - I thanks to the all-round competent support and help from my relatives (my wife, my sons, my brother, my brother-in-law) have firmly stopped on the south. And from a number of well-known Israeli clinics the choice, after careful monitoring, fell on the Tel Aviv clinic Assuta Complex. And we, I think, will never regret it.



Assuta Complex is not only one of the centers of modern world medicine that is widely and regularly recognized. Assuta Complex - with all its numerous units and services located already in three different places in the capital in impressive buildings of urban architecture, I personally imagine (on a safe expiration of the operation) a kind of majestic Temple of Health! I believe, like thousands of his other patients from all over the world, so it is.



I deliberately omit from organizational review the organizational and financial components. They are also natural for any society, like air and water for the everyday life of an individual. It seems to me, in the main thing - in people who create true Good in the operating rooms, in the wards, in the procedural and research clinics of the Assuta Complex.



And since I (and my family) interacted with a certain circle of people, I would like to highlight, first of all, the medical director - Alla Shinder - an excellent manager, a charming woman, a reliable responsible partner. I am sure that the misfortune transferred me and my family to Alla purely for the rest of my life! And if suddenly, more than expectation, she will need help, we are always ready to extend a hand of friendship.



As for the purely medical content, then preparation, consultations, and analyzes - in the Assuta Complex at the proper impeccable level. Apotheosis was a carefully prepared operation - brachytherapy. It is excellent, if it is appropriate to compare, the outstanding professor Haim Matskin ("chaim" in Russian translation of "life") carried out jewelry with a friendly professional team of doctors and assistants.



... It's been a month already. Now my usual creative (extremely rich) life is on the run. And inside my body for a second does not stop the struggle between "good and evil," skillfully introduced medicine, with predatory alien cells ...



I believe: victory will be ours!



With respect and gratitude to the whole clinic Assuta Complex and to my kind healers

The patient was treated in this clinic

The results of the tests (biopsy) simply shocked me !!! The question "What to do?" Did not come out of my head. Where to run, where to seek salvation?

The choice was between the three countries: Russia, Israel and Germany. Under the pressure of the opinion of relatives stopped in the south direction. After searching the Internet and with the clinic they decided - Assuta. All aspects, from preparation, diagnosis and ending with the operation itself - brachytherapy - are all at the highest professional level! The operation was carried out jewelly by Chaim Matskin. Already passed a month, the body struggles with the ailment. And all this thanks to the creators and saviors from Assuta.

The patient was treated of cervical cancer

I passed last year a planned medical examination. The doctors diagnosed me with cervical cancer. In Russia, such a diagnosis simply plunges into shock, as the level of medicine desires better, and cancer is generally a death sentence. My relatives supported me in a difficult moment.



Very soon I recovered from the shock, began to think-guess how to fight for a life for the sake of children, husband, myself. There was not much time, it was impossible to delay with such a diagnosis. On the advice of a friend, I chose the Assuta clinic in Israel. Why Assuta? I read a lot of positive responses about this hospital, the indicator of successfully conducted operations in the department of oncology was simply amazing. Of course, the level of Israeli doctors is much higher than ours.



Shortly after the application, the coordinator of the clinic contacted us, which also inspired confidence. He painted a program of treatment, introduced the case. When asked how much treatment will cost, the answer is tentative. They said that the doctor should specify the price, and payment is made after the fact. This was also a plus. Of course, there was some concern that we were going to a foreign country, we would feel "lost", but these fears were in vain.



It pleased us that at the stage of diagnosis we were informed that the situation was not so terrible. There was a hope for recovery. A few days later I was operated on.



I was at home in a couple of weeks completely healthy. There are not enough good words to express gratitude to the doctors of the Assuta clinic who cured me.

The patient was treated of lung cancer

Six months ago, my father was diagnosed with lung cancer. There was already stage 3, and our doctors said it was too late to do anything. But we decided that since we can not be cured here, this does not mean that we will not be helped abroad. Considered a lot of options, both Germany and Austria, but decided to go to Israel. Still, the medicine there is somewhat cheaper.

The father was treated in Assut. The clinic is very good, and the doctors in it are real professionals. Dad passed a course of chemotherapy with radiation, then an operation was performed. In general, the father feels well. We are very grateful to the doctors of the clinic.

The patient was treated of pancreatic cancer

Just returned from there. Everything was top notch, and doctors, and the organization of the stay. It took 2 days from the first call to the bookmarked to my arrival in Milan. The next morning, consult a doctor. All questions were solved almost instantly, the results of all analyzes and studies were ready the next day. And constantly in touch with the coordinator Catherine and care worker Alexander. In my trips to the clinic, I was accompanied by a super translator Yulya Sukhneva. Thanks to the clear and professional work of Julia, Kati and Alexander, my stay was very short, I saved money on the hotel. The hotel, by the way, was excellent, up to the clinic, 200 meters. Yes, and more, the prices for consultations and analyzes are quite comparable with those in Moscow. I spent much less money than I thought at first. Thank you all!

The patient underwent artificial insemination (ivf)

They wanted a child with her husband, but for a long time it did not work out. The doctor advised artificial insemination in Israel, but when they got acquainted with the prices ($ 14000), they understood - we will not. On the Internet, we learned that there are clinics in the USA certified by the United States (JCI). Appealed to Artemis.

Do not believe those who say that in India bad medicine - I have not seen before, or after such cleanliness and so much complex medical equipment. They came there twice - for diagnosis (prescribed hormones) and then for the process itself. By the way, they have inexpensive medicines. The girl was born 3.7 kg, without any problems (jaundice lasted a little longer than necessary). I am very pleased.

The patient was treated of viral hepatitis

Six months I was treated with hepatitis. Not only was the condition all the time, like with a cold, but there were no results either - the liver ached, and the tests were bad (enzymes, the number of viruses, etc.), then the thyroid gland became very inflamed.
The sister of the friend was treated in India - said that there is not worse than in Europe, but cheaper. I read about the treatment, I chose the hospital Artemis (a large clinic, one of the famous).
The Indian hospital impressed - beautifully, the new medical equipment, everything is very clear and fast. I was prescribed a new treatment regimen, which I tolerate well. The thyroid gland has passed, there is no common cold, the liver does not bother (so far, at least).

The patient was treated of breast cancer

In Moscow, local doctors tormented me for two months! Only a puncture (not a biopsy) 2 times took! And with the assumption of "breast cancer" was sent to an operation to remove the entire breast ("so reliable"). After two months of torment, I decided to go to Israel. I found the clinic Rambam. Have made a biopsy and diagnostics. They decided that at my stage it makes no sense to remove the entire chest. We decided to remove only one lymph node. So the breast will be saved !!!

The total price for all came out 5500 dollars. All the diagnostics took 3 days. Then another 5 days, I was waiting for the results of the biopsy. As a result, there was another meeting where the diagnosis was confirmed. But now I know exactly what and how to treat me! But I have an initial stage and no metastases. There is hope for a cure.
