The Benefits of Medical Tourism

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Medical tourism has achieved, at least at some extent, the status of celebrity. Thousands of people around the world have benefited, and continue to do so, with this positive trend. Global medicine is today not only a savior for those in need of urgent medical treatment, but also for those seeking to have an elective procedure done. It is a known fact that many healthcare systems in developed countries have exorbitant expenses, and some require long and extenuating processes, when looking for a specialist. For some, waiting is not an option; there are diseases and conditions that need fast decisions. This is when medical tourism steps in.

Since medical and travel expenses often are half of what you would spend in the US or the UK, and there are professionals and experts easily available, there’s no need to think it twice. It is really frustrating that, even if you have bought some kind of insurance, you remain underinsured or not insured at all for certain circumstances. Life is unpredictable and you never know when and how it will surprise you. Medical tourism can aid you if you ever happen to be in one of those situations.

That being said, it is clear that there’s no need to think about it twice when it comes to getting high quality medical treatments. Whether it is heart, bone, liver, brain surgery or any other kind of disease that needs to be treated by an expert, going abroad will save you from many frustrations and let you enjoy quality time with your family.

Surgeries abroad are a big hit among people all over the world. Almost to the point of becoming common, each day more people are recommended to get surgery abroad. There is a wide variety of medical services offered by hospitals and clinics for medical tourists. This includes, among others, cardiac treatments, dental procedures, diabetes management, ophthalmologic treatments, fertility procedures, general surgery, gynecology, orthopedic treatments, stem cell therapy, transplants, urological procedures and bariatric surgery. Setting aside mainstream treatments, you can get alternative treatments, such as Ayurveda, oriental medicine, naturopathy, wellness and spa treatments, cosmetic procedures and dermatology. A rapid economic growth, along with technological and scientific advances and the high health standards have made countries like Argentina, India, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong and Singapore pioneers in medical tourism. When you set foot in one of the clinics, you’ll find state-of-the-art infrastructure, high quality equipment, tenured professionals, greatly trained nurses, efficient management, and everything to make you feel home.

Dental House, dental medicine for everyone

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Marta Mabel Ramírez is an 80-year-old woman, who still has a good life to live with her family in Argentina.

In 2008, Marta came hopeless and depressed to Dental House, in Buenos Aires. Since she was toothless both in her lower and upper denture, her dental problems prevented her from leaving her house. The embarrassment and lack of confidence were too big.

Marta had heard the same answer from dozens of dentists: “Your case is irreversible, there’s nothing to do with your problem. I’m sorry”, was told once and again.

However, the attitude in Dental House was absolutely different. Although the first professional Marta visited in DH did not find a solution for her, chairwoman Dr. Ana Prieto perceived her sadness and hopelessness and sent her to Dr. Velardez, who assisted by a group of specialists found the solution. After some days, she had her teeth and her dignity back.

The woman received two dental prosthesis (upper and lower) and two dental implants, and at an incredibly affordable price.

This is only one of many examples that have made Dental House the best Dental Clinic in Argentina. Other facts about DH are:

– A modern system of implantology, a multiplicity of professionals and dental technicians working together, low costs and preferential treatment for each patient.

In Dental House hope is not just faith; it is knowledge, the experience of a history of performing about 100,000 implants, and professionalism.

Over 30 professionals are divided into two branches, one of them especially designed to receive dental tourists. The English-speaking staff has been formed to host overseas patients from different countries and cultures.
