CeraRoot Dental Implants in Mexico

August 14th, 2014 Share

CeraRoot implants are a good option for people with missing teeth but who are allergic to metal. In Mexico, CeraRoot zirconia implants cost much lower than in the United States. In addition to cost savings, having your dental implants here gives you access to quality care provided by highly experienced dental professionals.
 

CeraRoot Implants in Mexico

What are the Advantages of Having CeraRoot Implants?

  • CeraRoot dental implants are made of zirconia, a highly biocompatible material which promotes complete osseointegration.
  • Unlike metal implants, CeroRoot zirconia implants cause no or fewer allergic reactions.
  • Traditional titanium implants come with their own set of aesthetic issues, especially in people with translucent or receding gums.
  • In such cases, their gums might end up with a grayish tinge to them.
  • CeraRoot implants are metal-free and white in color, and closely match with the natural tooth color.
  • Zirconia implants are resistant to chemical corrosion.
  • CeraRoot implants are placed in a single-stage surgery, which helps cut down implantation time.
  • Why Mexico?

    Traveling to Mexico for CeraRoot zirconia implants can help you benefit in the following ways:

  • Get a mouthful of teeth without emptying your pockets: The cost of CeraRoot implants in Mexico is much lower than in the United States. Expect to save almost 60%-70% of the US prices, by having your implant work done south of the border.
  • High standard dental care: Dental tourism in Mexico has taken off in a big way owing to the presence of numerous American-style internationally accredited dental clinics and hospitals. Despite carrying a low price-tag, dental treatments match up with what you would get back home in the United States.
  • Proximity: The major Mexican dental tourism hubs are not very far from the United States. Reduced travel cost and time add on to the entire experience.
  • English-speaking dental professionals: The fact that most of the dental professionals who cater to patients from other parts of the world can speak good English makes the thought of traveling to Mexico less intimidating.
    Prompt treatment: Your dental implant treatment will be scheduled promptly without placing you on a waiting list.

    Brain and Spinal Tumor Treatment in India for Africans

    July 9th, 2014 Share

    Treatment for brain and spinal tumor in India can be considered by Africans looking for affordable cancer treatment without compromising quality.

    In northern Africa, brain tumors are the second most common tumors among children. In the absence of adequate health facilities in the continent, Africans are left with no choice but to seek treatment in the other parts of the world.

    And those intimidated by high costs of brain and neck cancers in countries such as the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, will find India (which offers tremendous savings) an option worth considering.
     

    Brain and Spinal Tumor Treatment - Radiation Therapy

     

    What are Brain and Spinal Tumors?

  • Both the skull and the spinal column are the main parts of the central nervous system (CNS).
  • Any unusual tissue growths on them are tumors.
  • Brain and spinal tumors can be of two types: benign tumors (non-cancerous) and malignant tumors (cancerous).
  • Tumors can impinge on sensitive tissue and interfere with the normal functioning of the nervous system.
  • Primary tumors are the ones originating in the brain or the spinal cord.
  • These are a result of uncontrolled growth around the cells surrounding and supporting the neurons.
  • Primary tumors may also result from certain genetic diseases such as tuberous sclerosis.
  • Radiation and certain kinds of chemicals can also result in brain and spinal tumors.
  • Some of the common symptoms of brain tumor are:
    • Headaches
    • Seizure
    • Nausea
    • Unclear vision
    • Auditory problems
    • Behavioral problems

    Common Types of Treatments

  • Cancer Surgery – While surgery helps reduce the amount of tumor that needs to be removed with radiation therapy, it also helps reduce the build-up of pressure in the skull. Additionally, it helps alleviate symptoms of brain tumor, such as headaches, nauseous feeling, and blurred vision.
  • Radiation Therapy – In radiotherapy, high energy waves (x-rays) are used to treat cancer. Radiotherapy may either be used after surgery to treat any tumors which could not be removed by your surgeon or reduce the likelihood of the tumor to come back in the future. It may also be used as the primary treatment in case the surgeon cannot access the tumor through surgery.
  • Chemotherapy – It makes use of cancer-annihilating drugs. These anti-cancer drugs are administered either through vein (IV) or the mouth. In some cases, cerebrospinal fluid may be directly injected with drugs. This is done through a ventricular access catheter which is inserted into the skull.

    What is a Kidney Transplant?

  • Also known as renal transplantation, it is an organ transplant of the kidney done in patients suffering from chronic kidney disease (end-stage renal disease) or kidney failure.
  • End-stage renal disease is a common outcome of malignant high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, and focal glomerular sclerosis.
  • Two sources of kidneys are living donors and deceased donors.
  • During a kidney transplant, instead of making space for the new kidney by removing dysfunctional kidneys, the former is placed in the iliac fossa.
  • To allow blood flow to the new kidney to make it function properly, blood vessels from the lower abdomen are attached to those of the new kidney.
  • The surgery is a complex one taking about three to four hours for completion.
  • On an average, eight days of hospitalization are required.
  • How much will a Transplant Cost?

    Kidney transplant costs in India are much lower than in the west. At $19,600, our package price for a kidney transplant is only about 10% of the prices charged in the US.

    Urology in India for Burundians

    June 24th, 2014 Share

    India is a good alternative for Burundians seeking quality urological treatments that suit their pocket. Medical Tourism Corporation facilitates urological procedures at one of the prime hospitals of the country which boasts international accreditation and has one of the best teams of urologists in India.
     

    Urinary Treatment in India for Burundians

     

    Urological Treatments Offered

    We offer the following urological treatments for Burundians in India are:

    Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP)
    It is a kind of surgery of the prostate which helps ameliorate urinary symptoms resulting from an enlarged prostate (which is also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia). A resectoscope is used to cut away redundant prostate tissues that block urinal flow.

    Hospital stay of about three days is required.

    GreenLight Laser Prostatectomy
    GreenLight Laser treatment for BPH is a minimally invasive procedure that helps treat urinary symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate.

    In this procedure, tiny fiber is inserted into the urethra through a cystoscope which channels high-power laser energy to the extra prostate tissues. The result is a wider channel for urine to flow through.

    Average duration of hospital stay is two days.

    Transurethral Resection of the Bladder Tumor (TURBT)
    This procedure helps in the diagnosis and removal of cancers of the bladder. A cystoscope is passed up through the urethra into the bladder. Cancer tissues are cut away and burnt using a resectoscope.

    On an average four days are required in the hospital.

    Bladder Neck Incision (BNI)
    This is a surgical procedure which helps improve urinary flow by removing stenosis in the bladder. A BNI involves making two cuts in the bladder neck area using a thin laser fiber or cutting instrument. Hospital stay is about three days.

    Optical Internal Urethrotomy
    It is a procedure that treats urethral strictures (scarring of the urethra) which may interfere with the normal urinal flow. An electronic knife with a telescope is used to remove that part of the stricture which may be obstructing the flow of urine.

    Length of hospital stay is two days.

    Laser Cystolithotripsy
    It is the surgical removal of bladder stones using laser energy which is directed through a firing fiber. On an average two days are required in the hospital.

    Laparoscopic Radical Cystectomy
    It is a minimally invasive option to traditional open radical cystectomy used to treat cancers of the bladder that have invaded muscles. Average length of hospital stay is seven days.

    Ureteroscopic Removal of Bladder Stones
    A ureteroscope is a device that is used to examine the urinary tract. It is used to find any bladder stones which are removed through a tiny basket attached to a thin wire inserted through an extra conduit in the ureteroscope. You will have to spend two days on an average for your bladder stone removal through ureteroscope.

    Ureteral Reimplantation
    Ureteral reimplant surgery helps correct any abnormally placed ureters that connect with the bladder. Improperly placed ureters force urine to flow back into the kidney in a condition known as vesicoureteral reflux.

    Hospital stay required is five days.

    Kidney Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL)
    It is a surgical procedure which removes kidney stones sized 2cm or more. This is done by making a tiny puncture wound of about 1cm. Average length of hospitalization is three days.
