Home / Medical Tourism


India, the exotic land with a wide range of diversity has been a favored destination for tourists for years. The recent years have seen the nation emerge as a winner in medical tourism as well. Up to 5 millions of visitors are expected to travel to India in 2016 as per the recent statistics. The health tourism industry does not merely cater to the neighboring countries of South Asia and Eastern Europe though. Thousands of well-to-do people also land up in India from the developed countries like USA and UK too. It is not only the cost efficiency that lures them to India now. Access to quality surgery along with post operational health care including proper arrangements for travel and stay makes medical tourism companies in India particularly attractive.

Total joint replacement

Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which parts of an arthritic or damaged joint are removed and replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device called a prosthesis. The prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint.

Total knee replacement:

A total knee replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased knee joint is replaced with artificial material. The knee is a hinge joint which provides motion at the point where the thigh meets the lower leg. The thighbone (or femur) abuts the large bone of the lower leg (tibia) at the knee joint.

Total hip replacement

A total hip replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased cartilage and bone of the hip joint is surgically replaced with artificial materials. The normal hip joint is a ball and socket joint. The socket is a "cup-shaped" component of the pelvis called the acetabulum

Total shoulder replacement

Total shoulder replacement arthroplasty is a well-established surgery for restoring comfort and function to the arthritic shoulder. In this procedure the arthritic ball is replaced by a smooth met- al ball fixed to the arm bone (humerus) by a stem that fits within it.

Arthroscopic surgery

Arthroscopy (also called arthroscopic surgery) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure on a joint in which an examination and sometimes treatment of damage is performed using an arthroscope, an endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision.

Spine surgery

The goal of a decompression surgery is usually to relieve pain caused by nerve root pinching. There are two common causes of lumbar nerve root pressure: from a lumbar herniated disc or lumbar spinal stenosis. This type of pain is usually referred to as a radiculopathy, or sciatica.

Ankle replacement

Ankle replacement is surgery to replace the damaged bone and cartilage in the ankle joint. Artificial joint parts (prosthetics) are used to replace your own bones. There are different types of ankle replacement surgeries.

ACL reconstruction:

Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL reconstruction) is a surgical tissue graft replacement of the anterior cruciate ligament, located in the knee, to restore its function after anterior cruciate ligament injury. The torn ligament is removed from the knee before the graft is inserted.

Dislocation treatment:

A dislocation occurs when the bones that are usually be connected at a joint separate. You can dislocate a variety of different joints in your body, including your knee, hip, ankle, or shoulder. Since a dislocation means your bone is no longer where it should be, you should treat it as an emergency and seek medical attention as soon as possible. An untreated dislocation could cause damage to your ligaments, nerves, or blood vessels.

Urology

Urology is a surgical specialty which deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs. Although urology is classified as a surgical specialty, a knowledge of internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology, and other specialties is required by the urologist because of the wide variety of clinical problems encountered. In recognition of the wide scope of urology, the American Urological Association has identified seven subspecialty areas:

  • 1. Pediatric Urology
  • 2. Urologic Oncology (cancer)
  • 3. Renal Transplantation
  • 4. Male Infertility
  • 5. Calculi (urinary tract stones)
  • 6. Female Urology (urinary incontinence and pelvic outlet relaxation disorders)

Common Procedures: -

Prostate Surgery: Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is still the most common surgical treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Minimally invasive prostate resection is surgery to remove part of the prostate gland, to treat an enlarged prostate. The surgery will improve the flow of urine through the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder outside of your body. It can be done in different ways.
Laser TURP is the latest technique,there is no incision (cut) in your skin.This procedure takes about 1 hour. The laser destroys prostate tissue that blocks the opening of the urethra. You will probably go home the same day. You may need a Foley catheter placed in your bladder to help drain urine for a few days after surgery. Advantages:Less Blood loss, Less Stay in Hospital, Quick Recovery.

General Surgery



Appendicectomy


Sometimes called appendisectomy or appendicectomy is the surgical removal of the vermiform appendix. This procedure is normally performed as an emergency procedure, when the patient is suffering from acute appendicitis.

Cholecystectomy

Cholecystectomy (koh-luh-sis-TEK-tuh-me) is a surgical procedure to remove your gallbladder — a pear-shaped organ that sits just below your liver on the upper right side of your abdomen. Your gallbladder collects and stores bile — a digestive fluid produced in your liver.

Hemorrhoidectomy

A hemorrhoidectomy is surgery to remove internal or external hemorrhoids that are extensive or severe. Surgical hemorrhoidectomy is the most effective treatment for hemorrhoids, though it is associated with the greatest rate of complications. Hemorrhoid Anatomy.

Bariatrics

Bariatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the causes, prevention, and treatment of obesity.

Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery).

Gastric bypass is surgery that helps you lose weight by changing how your stomach and small intestine handle the food you eat. After the surgery, your stomach will be smaller. You will feel full with less food. The food you eat will no longer go into some parts of your stomach and small intestine that break down food.

Hernia

A hernia occurs when an organ or fatty tissue squeezes through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or connective tissue called fascia. The most common types of hernia are inguinal (inner groin), incisional (resulting from an incision), femoral (outer groin), umbilical (belly button), and hiatal (upper stomach).

In an inguinal hernia, the intestine or the bladder protrudes through the abdominal wall or into the inguinal canal in the groin. About 96% of all groin hernias are inguinal, and most occur in men because of a natural weakness in this area.

In an incisional hernia, the intestine pushes through the abdominal wall at the site of previous abdominal surgery. This type is most common in elderly or overweight people who are inactive after abdominal surgery.

A femoral hernia occurs when the intestine enters the canal carrying the femoral artery into the upper thigh. Femoral hernias are most common in women, especially those who are pregnant or obese.

In an umbilical hernia, part of the small intestine passes through the abdominal wall near the navel. Common in newborns, it also commonly afflicts obese women or those who have had many children.


Liver Cysts

Liver cysts — fluid-filled cavities in the liver — usually cause no signs or symptoms and need no treatment. However, they may be large enough to cause pain or discomfort in the upper right part of the abdomen. Most liver cysts can be detected on ultrasound or computerized tomography (CT) scans.

Colectomy

Colectomy consists of the surgical resection of any extent of the large intestine (colon). It is also an occasional term used to describe removing the entire large intestine along with the rectum, but the appropriate term is proctocolectomy, where the whole large intestine and rectum are removed.

Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery



Hair Transplantation:

Nowadays, many men and women suffer from baldness and in order to conceal it, they look for different options available in the market. The most permanent solution for this problem is hair transplantation.

Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves individual hair follicles from a part of the body called the 'donor site' to bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'.

It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding, like the back of the head, are transplanted to the bald scalp which roughly takes around six hours.

Alcohol and smoking can contribute to poor graft survival. Post-operative antibiotics are commonly prescribed to prevent wound or graft infections.

We analyse the patient's scalp, discuss their preferences and expectations, and advise them on the best approach (e.g. single vs. multiple sessions) and what results might reasonably be expected.


Methods :

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant)

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)

Strip Technique or FUT is the most common technique for removing hair follicles from a donor site. The surgeon harvests a strip of skin from the posterior scalp, in an area of good hair growth.

Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE

These implanted hair follicles will fall off within 15 to 20 days and will start growing naturally from the roots as new hair. Once the Hair Transplant treatment is done, you can expect 70% to 90% growth in initial 6 to 8 months and complete growth by 1 year to 1 year 4 months.

Hair transplantation is a safe and relatively minor surgical procedure. The recovery time after hair transplant is much quicker with the patient often returning to work the next day itself.

Eyebrow Hair Transplantation

Eyebrow restoration is a surgical procedure intended to permanently restore and/or customize the appearance of the eyebrows. Eyebrow hair transplants are designed to restore growing hair to eyebrows that are overly thin, scarred, or completely missing.

For the first two to four days after the procedure, tiny crusts form around each transplanted hair. By three to five days, other than some occasional mild pinkness which fades out by the first week, patients are able to return to normal activities without any sign of having had a procedure. The transplanted hairs fall out at around two weeks, and then start to grow at three months, where they will continue to grow for a lifetime.

As big, bold eyebrows have become a trend for women and men, there is a noticeable increase in patients opting for eyebrow hair transplantation.

Tympanoplasty:

A tympanoplasty is a surgical procedure generally used to repair a ruptured ear drum but sometimes involves the repair of the tiny bones in the inner ear. A ruptured ear drum can be caused by an ear infection, barotrauma or injuries to the ear. The ear drum is repaired using a tissue graft, often made of adipose (fat) tissue. Before surgery you will probably be instructed to keep water out of your ears.

Tonsillectomy:

Tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure in which each tonsil is removed from a recess in the side of the pharynx called the tonsillar fossa. The procedure is performed in response to repeated occurrence of acute tonsillitis, sleep surgery for obstructive sleep apnea, nasal airway obstruction, diphtheria carrier state, snoring, or peritonsillar abscess. For children, the adenoids (also known as a pharyngeal tonsil or nasopharyngeal tonsil) are usually removed at the same time, a procedure called adenoidectomy, or tonsilloadenoidectomy when combined. Adenoidectomy is uncommon in adults in whom the adenoids are usually vestigial. Although tonsillectomy is performed less frequently than in the 1950s, it remains one of the most common surgical procedures in children.

Adenoidectomy:

Adenoidectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove the adenoids. Adenoids are a mass of lymphoid tissue located behind the nasal passages. All surgical procedures have risks and potential complications.

Cochlear Implant:

A cochlear implant is a small, complex electronic device used to treat severe to profound hearing loss. It is surgically implanted underneath the skin behind the patient's ear.

A cochlear implant delivers useful auditory signals from the environment to the patient by electronically bypassing non-functional parts of the ear and directly stimulating the auditory nerve. Unlike a hearing aid, it does not merely amplify sound. Instead, an implant increases the amount of nervous response to sound.

Although it does not restore normal hearing, the additional input provided by the implant often improves sound detection and increases speech understanding.

Normal results:

Most profoundly deaf patients who receive an implant are able to discern medium and loud sounds, including speech, at comfortable listening levels. Many use sound clues from the implant, together with speech reading and other facial cues, to achieve understanding. Almost all adults improve their communication skills when combining the implant with speech reading (lip reading), and some can understand spoken words without speech reading. More than half of adults who lost hearing after they learned to speak can understand some speech without speech reading. Especially with the use of accessory devices, the great majority can utilize the telephone with their implants.

Children who were born deaf or who lost their hearing before they could speak have the most difficulty in learning to use the implant. Research suggests, however, that most of these children are able to learn spoken language and understand speech using the implant. In general, the earlier the implant occurs the greater the chance of the implant providing sufficient sound input to provide speech understanding. As with the use of the telephone in adults, accessory devices such as special microphones often help the function of the implant in classroom settings.

FESS:

Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) is the mainstay in the surgical treatment of sinusitis and nasal polyps, including bacterial, fungal, recurrent acute, and chronic sinus problems.

Septoplasty:

Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to correct a deviated nasal septum. The septum is a wall composed of bone and cartilage that divides your nose into two separate nostrils. A deviated septum occurs when the septum is displaced to one side of the nose.

Cancer Treatments

Cancer, also called malignancy, is an abnormal growth of cells. There are more than 100 types of cancer, including breast cancer, skin cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, and lymphoma. Symptoms vary depending on the type. Cancer treatment may include chemotherapy, radiation, and/or surgery.

It is a common myth that cancer is not curable and ultimately leads to death of a person. Against this common myth, only few people are aware of the fact that cancer is curable in most of the cases and if detected early, patient can lead a normal life. The use of modern technology and latest research has brought the cure rate of cancer to almost 70-80%.

Causes of Cancer

Causes of Cancer Though there is no fixed cause of cancer, likelihood of its occurrence can be attributed to various factors like intake of tobacco, alcohol, exposure to radiation and certain viruses etc.


Treatment of Cancer in India

Cancer can be treated by number of methods and therapies. Surgery, Chemotherapy, Radiation Therapy, Immunotherapy, monoclonal antibody therapy and new treatments like Cyber Knife Radio surgery are some of the methods used in the treatments of cancer.


Cancer Treatment in India

With state of the art facilities and low cost, cancer treatment in India attracts large number of medical tourists from across the world. Almost all big hospitals in India provide cancer treatment. Besides, the high success rate of cancer treatment in India is a major factor in bringing medical tourists.


Blood Cancer Treatment

Leukaemia is the cancer of the blood or bone marrow and is characterized by an abnormal reproduction of blood cells (usually white blood cells). However, Leukaemia is a broader term which incorporates a spectrum of diseases. This is a malignant form of blood- formulating organs.


Symptoms of Blood Cancer Treatment

In the case of blood cancer the bone marrow is damaged, which results into lack of blood platelets. These blood platelets are important for the process of blood clotting therefore in the patients suffering from blood cancer becoming bruised; bleeding excessively or developing pinprick bleeds are common features.


Other main symptoms of the disease include:

  • These symptoms include fever, chills, night sweats.
  • Headaches
  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Enlarged liver
  • Infections frequently
  • Pain in the bones
  • Swollen tonsils
  • Paleness
  • Extreme weight loss

Treatment of Blood Cancer in India:
Blood cancer is rather a cluster of cancers developed in the blood cells and therefore the patients with leukaemia requires special treatment. The special cancer centres can only meet those special needs. The treatment of blood cancer is a complete program which the patients have to follow in order to achieve best results.


These Include:

1. Chemotherapy: is the first method to destroy those leukaemic cells by the usage of anti cancer drugs.

2. Interferon therapy: is effective to slow down the rate of reproduction of the leukaemic cells and helps the immune system to build sufficient anti- leukaemia activity.

3. Radiation therapy: this therapy is effective to kill cancer cells with the process of exposure to high- energy radiations.

4. Stem Cell Transplantation: This procedure is required in order to enable treatment with high doses of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

5. Surgery: The surgery is performed for the removal of an enlarged spleen or to install a venous access device to give medications and withdraw blood samples.

Infertility Treatment

Infertility refers to an inability to conceive after having regular unprotected sex. Infertility can also refer to the biological inability of an individual to contribute to conception, or to a female who cannot carry a pregnancy to full term.

Male Infertility:

Reproduction (or making a baby) is a simple and natural experience for most couples. However, for some couples it is very difficult to conceive. Male infertility is diagnosed when, after testing of both partners, reproductive problems have been found in the male partner.


How common is Male Infertility?

Infertility is a widespread problem. For about one in five infertile couples the problem lies solely in the male partner (male infertility).


Are there any of sign or symptoms male infertility?

In most cases, there are no obvious signs of an infertility problem. Intercourse, erections and ejaculation will usually happen without difficulty. The quantity and appearance of the ejaculated semen generally appears normal to the naked eye.


How does the male reproductive system work?

How does the male reproductive system work? The male reproductive tract is made up of the testes, a system of ducts (tubes) and other glands opening into the ducts. The testes (testis: singular) are a pair of egg shaped glands that sit in the scrotum next to the base of the penis on the outside of the body. Each normal testis is 15 to 35ml in volume in adult men. The testes are needed for the male reproductive system to function normally. The testes have two related but separate roles:

1. Production of sperm

2. Production of the male sex hormone, testosterone.


Causes of Male Infertility:

Male infertility can be caused by problems that affect sperm production or the sperm transport process. With the results of medical tests, the doctor may be able to find a cause of the problem. Known causes of male infertility can be.


Sperm production problems:

The most common cause of male infertility is due to a problem in the sperm production process in the testes. Low numbers of sperm are made and/or the sperm that are made do not work properly. About two thirds of infertile men have sperm production problems.


Are there any of sign or symptoms male infertility?

In most cases, there are no obvious signs of an infertility problem. Intercourse, erections and ejaculation will usually happen without difficulty. The quantity and appearance of the ejaculated semen generally appears normal to the naked eye.


Blockage of sperm transport:

Blockages (often referred to as obstructions) in the tubes leading sperm away from the testes to the penis can cause a complete lack of sperm in the ejaculated semen. This is the second most common cause of male infertility and affects about one in every five infertile men, including men who have had a vasectomy but now wish to have more children.


Female Infertility:

There is no unanimous definition of female infertility, but NICE guidelines state that: "A woman of reproductive age who has not conceived after 1 year of unprotected vaginal sexual intercourse, in the absence of any known cause of infertility, should be offered further clinical assessment and investigation along with her partner." It is recommended that a consultation with a fertility specialist should be made earlier if the woman is aged 36 years or over, or there is a known clinical cause of infertility or a history of predisposing factors for infertility. Infertility primarily refers to the biological inability of a person to contribute to conception. Infertility may also refer to the state of a woman who is unable to carry a pregnancy to full term. There are many biological causes of infertility, including some that medical intervention can treat. Infertility has increased by 4 percent since the 1980s, mostly from problems with fecundity due to an increase in age. About 40 percent of the issues involved with infertility are due to the man, another 40 percent due to the woman, and 20 percent result from complications with both partners. Women who are fertile experience a natural period of fertility before and during ovulation, and they are naturally infertile during the rest of the menstrual cycle. Fertility awareness methods are used to discern when these changes occur by tracking changes in cervical mucus or basal body temperature.

Fertility awareness methods are used to discern when these changes occur by tracking changes in cervical mucus or basal body temperature.


How Does Age Affect Fertility?

Women are born with a finite number of eggs. Thus, as the reproductive years progress, the number and quality of the eggs diminish. The chances of having a baby decrease by 3% to 5% per year after the age of 30. This reduction in fertility is noted to a much greater extent after age 40.


Causes of Female Infertility:

Female infertility can be also be caused by a number of factors, including the following:

1. Damage to fallopian tubes:

2. Hormonal causes:

3. Cervical causes:

4. Uterine causes:

5. Unexplained infertility:

6. Hormonal problems:

Damage to fallopian tubes:

Damage to the fallopian tubes (which carry the eggs from the ovaries to the uterus) can prevent contact between the egg and sperm. Pelvic infections, endometriosis, and pelvic surgeries may lead to scar formation and fallopian tube damage

Hormonal causes:

Some women have problems with ovulation. Synchronized hormonal changes leading to the release of an egg from the ovary and the thickening of the endometrium (lining of the uterus) in preparation for the fertilized egg do not occur. These problems may be detected using basal body temperature charts, ovulation predictor kits, and blood tests to detect hormone levels.

Cervical causes:

A small group of women may have a cervical condition in which the sperm cannot pass through the cervical canal. Whether due to abnormal mucus production or a prior cervical surgical procedure, this problem may be treated with intrauterine inseminations.

Uterine causes:

Abnormal anatomy of the uterus; the presence of polyps and fibroids

Unexplained infertility:

The cause of infertility in approximately 20% of couples will not be determined using the currently available methods of investigation.

Hormonal problems:

Sometimes the pituitary gland does not send the right hormonal messages to the testes. This can cause both low testosterone levels and a failure of the testes to produce sperm. Hormonal causes are uncommon, and affect less than one in -100 infertile men. Unfortunately, medical scientists do not yet understand all the details of sperm production and the fertilisation process. As a result, for many men with a sperm production problem, the cause cannot be identified.


I.V.F Treatment:

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a process by which egg cells are fertilised by sperm outside the womb, in vitro. IVF is a major treatment in infertility when other methods of assisted reproductive technology have failed. The process involves hormonally controlling the ovulatory process, removing ova (eggs) from the woman's ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a fluid medium. The fertilised egg (zygote) is then transferred to the patient's uterus with the intent to establish a successful pregnancy.

IVF may be used to overcome female infertility in the woman due to problems of the fallopian tube, making fertilisation in vivo difficult. It may also assist in male infertility, where there is defect sperm quality, and in such cases intracytoplasmic sperm injection ( ICSI) may be used, where a sperm cell is injected directly into the egg cell. This is used when sperm have difficulty penetrating the egg, and in these cases the partner's or a donor's sperm may be used. ICSI is also used when sperm numbers are very low. ICSI results in success rates equal to those of IVF fertilisation.

For IVF to be successful it may be easier to say that it requires healthy ova, sperm that can fertilise, and a uterus that can maintain a pregnancy. Due to the costs of the procedure, IVF is generally attempted only after less expensive options have failed.

This also avails for egg donation or surrogacy where the woman providing the egg isn't the same who will carry the pregnancy to term. This means that IVF can be used for females who have already gone through menopause. The donated oocyte can be fertilised in a crucible. If the fertilisation is successful, the zygote will be transferred into the uterus, within which it will develop into an embryo.

IVF can also be combined with preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) to rule out presence of genetic disorders. A similar but more general test has been developed called Preimplantation Genetic Haplotyping (PGH).

Infertility primarily refers to the biological inability of a person to contribute to conception. Infertility may also refer to the state of a woman who is unable to carry a pregnancy to full term. There are many biological causes of infertility, some which may be bypassed with medical intervention

Women who are fertile experience a natural period of fertility before and during ovulation, and they are naturally infertile during the rest of the menstrual cycle. Fertility awareness methods are used to discern when these changes occur by tracking changes in cervical mucus or basal body temperature.
