Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

India is not relenting in her drive to keep the medical tourists coming. Though it is among the top ten medical tourism destination countries for several reasons, the India government is making sure that they stay there for a longer time in the face of growing competition in the world of medical tourism.

The Indian government will clear all e-visas of medical tourism patients

Medical tourism patients who are seeking treatment for ailments that will take a prolonged time have a reason to smile. The Indian has announced that she will clear all e-visas for patients seeking treatment of terminal illnesses in familiar health care centers. It has to be a familiar health care center so that those in charge can monitor the progress of the patient.

The move will give citizens of over one hundred and fifty nation access to visa

Clearing of all e-visas will give citizens of over one hundred and fifty countries access to medical care in India. The declaration is expected at the end of the present parliament session. The visas is expected to be processed online.

The process would involve a documentation process

The duplicates of the patient’s therapeutic medicine which must have been given by a government approved health care center would be needed to be sent in company of the online application. On entry of the patients into India, their biometric information will be taken and recorded.

India welcomes medical tourists from developed and developing nations annually

The flow of medical tourists used to be from developing countries to developed countries but India is one of the countries that have succeeded in changing the trend. Today, medical tourists from developing as well as developed nations visit India annually to seek for treatment. Research has shown that medical tourism adds about three percent of India’s total GDP.

India is using different means to keep medical tourists flowing

Low cost is the main tool India is using to keep the number of inbound medical tourists increasing. India is one of the countries that offer the cheapest cost for medical treatment. Besides the current move to clear all e-visas, which would definitely cause hype in the number of medical tourists, India also has expert medical professionals and ultramodern equipment that assures the patients of the total safety of their process.

Medical tourists would be given medical visa upon landing

If the proposed process becomes a reality, medical travelers would be given medical visa which would last for thirty days starting from the day of entry. The visa could be extended for a year for applications submitted with therapeutic declaration which was upheld by an acclaimed healing facility based in India.

Application for visa usually takes a while to be handled

Patients seeking medical treatment in India would need to apply for visa online or at Indian Consulates / High Commissions. The patient needs to be present at the Indian Mission for a meeting and will have to present a testament of seeking healing endorsed by a medical facility in India.

The medical treatment offered in India can be compared to that of other developed nations in terms of quality

The expansion of India medical tourism has expanded to the point where they have visitors from the United States, Japan and different parts of Europe among other countries and continents now. The quality of treatment medical tourists get is top notch and can be compared to the very best in the world. Many medical tourism nations are emulating India in offering low cost treatment now.

Effectiveness of Laser Liposuction in Turkey

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Wealthy people often show more laxity to control what they eat. The result is that they soon begin to bloat out till they lose their shape. There are also special cases where people are genetically wired easily. The cause of people becoming fat in general is as a result of deposition of fat beneath the skin of the person.

There are different reasons why people will become fat

Bloating out in most case is caused by the individual’s life style. Bad eating habits such as eating too much and infrequently, eating junk foods and drinking alcohol has been one of the causes of excessive fat deposition. They body usually gets more than it needs and the excess is converted to fat and stored. Lack of physical exercise compounds the problem.

Excessive fat can have different outcomes on the patient

People are often oblivious of their weight gain till it has spiraled out of control. The physical appearance might be a source of worry but there is more that goes on within such as;

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Excessive fat increases the risk of an individual to obesity and cardiac disease.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. The psychological trauma is also disturbing.

Laser liposuction permanently takes out the fats

Laser liposuction has been sought by many as a means of getting rid of their excess fat permanently. The fats in certain areas of the body such as hips, thigh, knee, arms, abdomen, cheeks, chin and neck are mostly targeted.

Laser liposuction has an advantage over the normal liposuction

The basic advantage laser liposuction has over that of primary is that there is shorter recovery period. Laser liposuction is one of the medical procedures that can be sought by medical tourists in Turkey. Laser Liposuction in Turkey is a growing field that is currently accommodating lots of visitors.

The process of laser liposuction is a little technical

Here, fine cannula is inserted into the pores on the skin making a laser optical fiber. [*The cannula is slightly moved to destroy fat cells. *] As the laser goes through the dermis of the skin, it leads to the synthesis of collagen which makes the skin of the treated area tight. The entire process would normally last from one to three hours depending on the number of areas to be treated.

Medical tests are conducted before surgery

When anesthesia is to be used on the patient, they are advised to stop taking herbal tea or aspirin ten days before the procedure. Medical tests also include reviews of the patient’s medical history files and discussion with the surgeon in charge.

The risk associated with liposuction is low

The risk of laser liposuction is very minimal and can include such things as mild skin injury, retention of fluid, color changes, grooving of the skin and if not properly cared for, infection may occur. Surgeons in Turkey will make sure that none of this would happen.

The individual can return to work 1 – 2 weeks after the procedure

Most medical procedures will normally keep the patient grounded for some period of time. For laser liposuction, this time varies from one to two weeks. This is because a number of symptoms may manifest immediately after the operation such as numbness, temporary bruising and feeling of pain. The patient has to be placed under surveillance till these symptoms have disappeared before they will be allowed to go. It may take more time before the patient can begin to engage in more strenuous activities.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Prostate Cancer in Istanbul, Turkey

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Prostate cancer is a type of cancer associated with the prostate gland of males. Women cannot suffer from this type of cancer because of the obvious reason that they do not possess the prostate gland. The risk of men having prostate cancer tends to increase with age. For example, it has been shown that six out of ten men diagnosed of prostate cancer are 65 years and above and the cancer is rare in men below 40 years.

Men above forty years need to be checked regularly

The progression of prostate cancer is very slow and usually asymptomatic in the early stages. Therefore, men above 40 are advised to go for regular medical checkups so that this form of cancer can be tracked at the early stage which will increase the treatment and recovery options.

Acinar adenocarcinoma occurs more frequently

The major type of prostate cancer that has been recorded in most of the diagnosed cases (9 in 10 cases) is the type known as acinar adenocarcinoma. There are other forms of adenocarcinoma as follows; foamy carcinoma, atrophic carcinoma, signet ring carcinoma and colloid carcinoma.

A number of prostate cancer types are rare

Besides the acinar adenocarcinoma, other forms of prostate cancer have been recorded. The other forms are rare with an incidence of less than 1%. The rare forms of prostate cancer include carcinoid, squamous cell cancer, small cell cancer, ductal adenocarcinoma, sarcomas and sarcomatoid cancers and transitional cell (urothelial) cancer.

All forms of cancers have a uniform treatment

Irrespective of the form in which the prostate cancer comes, the treatment regimen is usually the same. Surgery is usually employed to get rid of the tumor. In the less advanced cases, only chemotherapy may be used. The combination of surgery and radiation is to completely eradicate the tumor cells from the prostate region.

There are less frequent treatment plans that are used in Turkey

Besides the surgery, different other treatment plans have been explored for the treatment of prostate cancer in Istanbul and they are as follows[*:*] photodynamic therapy, immunotherapy, streotatic body radiation therapy, hormonal therapy, modulating arc therapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy, gene therapy, image guided radiotherapy and so on.

Diagnosis of prostate cancer can be done in a number of ways

Like all other illnesses, prostate cancer can be diagnosed in the early stages if the right diagnostic technique is employed. In Istanbul, Turkey, some of the diagnostic methods that are currently employed span across Magnetic Resonance Imaging, PET-CT and computer tomography. Laboratory confirmatory tests like microbiology, biochemistry, endocrinology, toxicology and autoimmune tests may be carried out for effective treatment.

Turkey stands out as a destination for prostate treatment

Medical tourists visiting Istanbul for prostate treatment will be attended to by expert physicians in the field of oncology who will make a comprehensive study of the cancer case using modern technology before treatment is commenced. Also, patients are treated equally irrespective of their nationality.

Radiation therapy has been found to be more effective in some regions

Radiation therapy involves focusing of ionizing radiation beams on the cancerous cells to reduce their rate of multiplication. One of the radiation therapies used in Turkey is the True Beam. Its use has been very effective and has a wide range of usage for several types of cancer. However, it has been found to be more effective when used for cancer of the breast, lungs, spinal region and prostate. Radiation therapy use is also limited because of the numerous side effects that come with it.

The Uniqueness of Laryngeal Cancer Cure in Hyderabad, India

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

The larynx is a part of the throat that lies between the base of the tongue and the trachea. The larynx contains the vocal cords. The function of the vocal cord is to vibrate when air is directed against them, a phenomenon which helps us to talk and make different sounds. Laryngeal cancer is diagnosed when cancerous cells are found in the larynx.

The cause of laryngeal cancer is not fully understood

There has been no established link to the cause of laryngeal cancer but it has been observed that excessive stimulation of the vocal chords especially among musicians can stimulate the cells in the region to begin to multiply uncontrollably.

Surgery is the main resort in treating laryngeal cancer

The delicate nature of the larynx means that care has to be taken when working on them. Laryngeal operations involve the separation of the airway from the esophagus, mouth and nose and in some cases the total removal of the larynx. This procedure is termed laryngectomy. There are two types of laryngectomy and they are -

1. Total laryngectomy

This procedure as the name implies is the total removal of the larynx from the neck. The choice of total laryngectomy may be informed by the stage of the cancer and the overall well-being of the individual. It is usually the last resort if the larynx is too damaged or the cancer is a major threat to the life of the individual.

2. Partial laryngectomy

This is a milder procedure that comes into play when the larynx is partially damaged and can be remedied. The damaged portion is removed and then the area is treated with radiation to remove any further trace of the cancer.

An opening will be created in the neck for the patient to breathe

Patients who undergo laryngectomy will have an opening (called stoma) made in their neck through which they can breathe. There are different types of laryngectomy which include microlaryngeal surgery, transoral laser exicision, laryngo fissure, laryngopharyngooesophagectomy and direct laryngoscopy and biopsy. The duration the patient will stay in the hospital depends on the type of procedure carried out.

Laryngeal cancer surgery in India has many benefits

Successful completion of this operation will prevent the cancer from spreading further to other regions. The surgery to remove the cancerous tissue from the neck and larynx will also relief the patient of the constant pain in the neck that laryngeal cancer presents. The cost of laryngeal surgery in India is also among the cheapest in the world.

Larynx surgery in India comes as a full package

When you are given a package treatment for larynx cancer in India, you should know that the treatment cost covers all expenses such as surgery cost, doctor’s fees, nursing charges, hospital costs and cost of transportation (to and from the airport).

Pre-investigation and post evaluation costs are not included in the treatment package

Pre-investigation is charged separately. Pre-investigation usually includes MRI, PET, CT and other routine tests. The package does not also cover post-surgical re-evaluations and medications. The maximum stay for any form of cancer is six days and the patient party has to pay the above mentioned charges outside the package for medications before and after this duration.

Indian laryngeal cancer treatment offers additional services out of the package

When you go to India for laryngeal cancer surgery, other additional services you can get are free visa support, advanced cancer diagnostics, an accommodation that is very low when compared to hotels, free airport shuttle transportation. Those receiving chemotherapy with an accommodation close to the clinic will have free medical support.

Gastric bypass is aimed at reducing the stomach of the patient

Guide to Liposuction Surgery in Europe

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Getting rid of excess fat can be a steep hill to climb. Millions of people have found themselves in that tight corner. There are many ways to get rid of that excess fat but a lot of people only know about exercising and dieting. If rigorous exercising and skipping diets have not worked for you, it is time you have to think about getting a liposuction surgery.

Liposuction is a fast way to get rid of excess fats

Liposuction is a form of minimally invasive surgery that is used to get rid of excess localized fats. Liposuction is a form of cosmetics surgery also known as lipoplasty, liposculpture and so on. Like the name implies, unwanted fats are sucked out of the body. The area with the unwanted fat is treated with laser to melt the fats. A cannula is then inserted under the skin. A high pressure vacuum of great power is then applied to the cannula to remove the fats.

Liposuction can be used for both males and females

Liposuction intervention can be done on both men and women. The areas of the body that liposuction can be carried out include breast, hips, abdomen, arms, knees, neck, flanks, buttocks, thighs and cheeks. Due to its optional advantage of choosing your body area where you want to have Liposuction done, it is getting the most popular procedure to remove extra fats from particular organs.

European countries are emerging as the destinations for liposuction surgery

Liposuction has been described as the most common form of cosmetics surgery in America and the United Kingdom. However, a good number of European countries have successfully carried out liposuction in their facilities. Currently, European countries are becoming the major destination for medical tourists seeking liposuction.

The benefits of liposuction are overwhelming

Liposuction comes with numerous benefits such as smoothening and tightening the skin, improvement in health and appearance, improvement in self-esteem, reshaping areas of the body that could not be improved by diet and exercise and removal of unwanted mass from the body.

Cost of liposuction depends on a number of factors

The technique used by the cosmetic surgeon for the liposuction will determine the cost of the procedure. The size of the area to be suctioned also determines the cost. Other factors that affect the cost of liposuction include your living place, age and experience of the cosmetic surgeon. It is worthy to note that high cost does not translate to good surgery.

The cost of liposuction varies from one country to another

The cost of liposuction per treatment area in the United States often ranges from $2,500 to $7,500 with an average of about $4,403. In comparison to this price, European and Asian countries offer the same treatment at lower prices. For example, the procedure can be carried out in Thailand for $2,100, in India for $2,200 and in Mexico for $2,800. Competitive price appears to be the reason why medical tourists are picking European and Asian countries over the US.

The price for liposuction varies with different medical facilities across Europe

European countries such as Turkey, Germany, Croatia and Czech Republic have several clinics that handle liposuction expertly. Turkey has the highest amount of facilities offering liposuction surgery. However, the cheapest price is offered by Czech Republic which ranges from $1,500 to $2,730.

Contacting a medical faculty for liposuction surgery in Europe is easy

Seventy percent of the stomach is removed in gastric sleeve procedure

A gastric surgeon carrying out gastric sleeve procedure will remove about 70 percent of the stomach making it take the shape of a tube or sleeve. This procedure is relatively simple and minimally invasive but the benefits are far reaching.

Gastric sleeve limits the possibility of future weight gain

One of the major challenges that people who are struggling to lose weight face is the regaining of the lost weight. Losing weight through exercise is a very tedious process and if the patient takes a long break from exercising, they tend to begin accumulating the lost weight. Permanent procedures like sleeve gastrectomy is a fast way to lose weight and will reduce the risk of regaining weight in the future.

Gastric sleeve will eliminate the hormone for hunger

During gastric sleeve, the surgeon will remove the portion of the stomach that produces the hormone Ghrelin which stimulates hunger. After the surgery, the patient’s yearning for food will be greatly reduced. The reduced size of the tummy will also not allow them take in food in excess of the body’s requirement.

Excess weight will be lost in 12 months

Gastric sleeve is the fastest growing bariatric surgery and this is attributed to its safety. Patients who have undergone gastric sleeve have attested to losing as much as sixty to one hundred percent of excess weight within twelve and eighteen months. The recovery period is also very short with minimal side effects.

Gastric sleeve leads to improvement in patient’s health

The benefit of carrying out gastric sleeve in India is numerous. Besides, the reduction in cost but quality treatment is a glaring side which has made India to be one of the world’s foremost medical tourist destinations. There are several other benefits that come with gastric sleeve which results in the overall well-being of the patient. Some of the benefits are:

The heel is one part of the body that is put under constant strain and this often causes either acute pain or injuries. Heel pains or injuries are more frequent among those who undergo rigorous activities. A good example is athletes. Inflammation of the heels brings a lot of discomfort and you may be tempted to find a quick relief. It is unwise to play the doctor at such point; rather look for experts who can help.

Inflammation of the plantar fascia leads to heel pain

The plantar fascia is a ligament resembling structure that is located at the bottom of the foot. Heel pain usually results when this structure becomes inflamed. Inflammation of the plantar fascia can be caused by arthritis, heel spur or gout, some systemic diseases and obesity. There are different treatment options for heel treatment.

Orthotic foot supports are used for heel pain treatment

Frequently used techniques for the treatment of heel pain include orthotic foot support, oral anti-inflammation medications, cortisone injection and weight loss. It is not in all cases that conservative treatment will be successful in alleviating heel pain. Surgical intervention may become necessary when the conservative techniques fail.

A new conservative treatment has emerged

Shock wave therapy is a new conservative technique that is being explored for the treatment of heel pain. This therapy is very effective though, it is still under trial for some after-effects that may aggravate the complications. Therefore, shock wave therapy is minimally invasive and can be followed up with surgery if the procedure should fail.

EPAT is a form of shock wave treatment for heel pain

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT)is a treatment done outside of the body. The shock wave is generated by very strong sound energy. The device D-Actor 50 is used to perform the treatment which is non-invasive. Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment is usually carried out in three regimens.

The success rate for Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment is high

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment has a proven success rate with some patients reporting immediate relief after treatment. The general length of time that is allotted for patients to begin experiencing relief is usually up to four weeks.

The price of laser foot surgery will depend on the severity

Approximately, heel spurs would cost $3000. However, the price will differ slightly depending on the specialist’s diagnosis of the severity. A more severe condition would cost more to treat. Cost will also vary slightly from one hospital to another.

Heel pain management is handled best in Orlando

Orlando, United States, is the best place to carry out shock wave treatment of an aching foot because of the large pool of specialists they have. There are diverse treatment options to choose from and the cost of each treatment is fairly affordable.

Choose a specialist that is board certified

Several facilities would always claim they are specialists in the treatment of heel pain. This has made it a matter of urgency for patients to check the certification level of the specialist who would handle their situation. Make sure the specialist has a certification from the following; The Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Review Physicians, The American Academy of Pain Management, The American Board of Podiatric Surgery and The American Board of Ambulatory Foot Surgery.

Check the records of your proposed specialist

Contacting a foot surgery specialist is easy. Many of the medical facilities offering laser foot surgeries have websites that contain the profile of their specialists. Carry out a simple research into the records of these specialists to see if they have handled cases that are similar to yours and how much success they made in the process.
