All countries do not have access to the sophisticated technology or equipments that needs detecting certain rare and complex conditions such as connective tissue diseases. Many countries in Africa such as Tanzania and Ethiopia have shortage of medical staff and healthcare facilities. In such cases, the patients can travel to a foreign country seeking expert opinion on his health and treatment plan at affordable prices.

Some people find it hard to accept that they have been diagnosed with a disease. Asking for a second opinion can make them feel comfortable and confident about the decisions which they make. This is because they are better informed and gain a clear understanding of their medical condition.

Sometimes a diagnosis may be false. Therefore, it is better to get another opinion on the matter which can help the patient step in the right direction for curing the illness. The patient may have a serious condition which needs an immediate attention but may be diagnosed differently and misguided to a treatment plan of little consequence. Lapses may occur in a doctor’s judgement and an individual should consult with another professional before making life altering decisions.

They may lay emphasis on the different aspects of the treatment including cost effectiveness, pain management, invasiveness, speed of recovery, etc. Hence their opinions are bound to differ.

On the other hand, there is a notable trend that the patients instantly warm up to the idea of the alternatives to the invasive surgeries. The reason cited include reduced physical and psychological stress which they would be subject to. A patient must consider several opinions and make a well-informed, desirable choice to experience the best possible treatment.

Also certain medical practices are native to a particular country only and so they offer unique treatment plans for the global patients.

Medical errors can occur in the diagnosis due to severity of the condition or the condition itself.

If the eye lens becomes clouded then it might cause blurred vision, difficulty in reading signs while driving or disabling glare at night time. People affected from cataract may find it difficult to engage in activities such as daily household work, knitting, etc. and hence opt for cataract surgery. Cataract surgery is a procedure to remove the cataract from the eye of the patient. The clouded lens is removed from the eye and replaced by what is called as an Intraocular lens implant (IOL). In cases where IOL cannot be used due to some reason, it is left out and its absence is compensated by cataract glasses or contact lenses.

India has world class eye surgeons providing high standard treatments at low costs. While the cataract surgery in the US costs you around 3,500 USD per eye and about 4,000 USD in the UK, it will cost you only 200-300 USD in India. Here we have institutions with all platforms for cataract surgery including the Signature, the Infinity and the Stellaris. All these machines are used for the micro-coaxial cataract surgery with minimalistic incisions in the eye.

Dental Implants

Heart Attack: Men and Women Aren’t Equal

Overview

A heart condition is one of the biggest killers in the world for both men and women. Earlier a study suggested that men and women with mild heart disease share the same risks at least over the short term. Doctors have thought that women with mild heart disease do worse than men. However, this study suggests that the rate of heart attacks and death among men and women with heart disease is similar.

Man_woman_heart-(1)

As per the lead researcher, Dr. Jonathon Leipsic, director of medical imaging at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia, “Meanwhile both men and women who do not have build-up of plaque in their coronary arteries have the same good chance to avoid severe heart-related consequences. If you have a normal CT scan, then you are not likely to have a heart attack or die in the next 2.3 years- whether you are a man or a woman. That’s an important new finding.” Further he said that the ability to use a CT scan for diagnosing plaque in the coronary arteries has enabled the researchers to determine whether the outcomes are the same for men and women, irrespective of what other tests show.

But as per a new study, the signs of heart attack vary with gender. Though men tend to report the stereotypical chest pain but women rarely do so.

The Study

According to the study conducted by the researchers in Florida, they have looked at the range of symptoms that have been experienced by both men and women while they are having a heart attack. This was done in order to help the people of both sexes to identify the heart attack if they have one. They set out to look at the prevalence of chest pain with heart attack and whether the chest pain can give an indication of if the patient is likely to die from the heart attack.

The symptoms of a heart attack can vary from extreme chest pain, loss of breath, tingling limbs and nausea. The researchers have looked at the records of over a million Americans who suffered a heart attack within a set of 12 year period from 1994 to 2006. They recorded the gender, symptoms and death rates for each testimony examined.

The Results

Around 30.7% women reported chest pain during their heart attack, with younger women less likely to experience it than the older ones. What’s more surprising is that less than half i.e. just 42% of the men reported crushing chest pain as a symptom of their heart attack. These results show contrary to the popular belief, chest pain is not a key symptom of a heart attack. Most people who have a heart attack do not experience chest pain at all. Some have no pain whatsoever while they are having a heart attack in the chest, jar, arm or neck.

It is significant that people are aware that the unexplained shortness of breath, sweating and nausea are vital signs of a heart attack. In case these symptoms arise, then people who are at higher risk of heart attack such as those who are overweight or aged over 50 should seek medical attention.

Bottom Line

Indian Healthguru Consultants is a pioneer in the medical tourism industry assisting the global patients seeking their cardiac surgery and treatments at the best hospitals in India. Our doctors and surgeons at cardiology center in the hospitals are highly qualified and have vast experience performing affordable cost cardiac surgery.

Loneliness is distinct from social isolation. We can measure characteristics such as marital status, number of friends, and participation in group activities. Low scored people doesn’t correspond to loneliness however, some people are more of “me” type than others. After all some are connected to just one or two friends. A definition defined by researchers “loneliness is a gap between a persons desired and actual social relationships; to put it in a different way social isolation mainly describes the extent of a person’s social network. Loneliness increases quality rather than quantity and also provide comfort to a person derives from there interpersonal relationships. I felt like isolated like I can relate to anybody”.

Julieta from America was happy choosing a dental vacation package with Dr Tarun Giroti in India

I am Julieta I live in Uruguay; America was looking for some general dental repair and maintenance work as recently I had been neglecting my teeth due to lack of time and money. I also had some discoloration of my teeth as well as several old crowns and fillings of dubious quality. But my main reason was to regain full use of my mouth as for nearly 18 years I have been missing 3 lower molars meaning I couldn’t chew food properly! On top of that I wanted a beautiful smile. I am known for my big smile, it is part of my persona and I was no longer proud of it.

dental vacation

After doing my research and reading up on Dr Tarun Giroti in India, I sent an email requesting a quote. To my surprise, after calculating the travel costs, the cost of getting the implants and root canal treatment, and accommodation costs, I would only have to pay about 50% of the total price I was quoted in the US for the dental treatment which i so desperately needed. I immediately decided to take the journey to India to have my dental treatment done. Dr Tarun Giroti is extremely professional in his approach to work and the manner in which he undertakes all the treatments. He took a great deal of time examining my teeth, putting me at ease and discussing my options. To achieve the finished look I wanted I needed to have 8 fillings replaced, 3 root canal treatments, 6 Emax crowns and 3 Bredent implants. I chose to have my teeth laser whitened but opted to have no veneers as I wanted to keep the look of my natural teeth. The work was started on my first day and in total 6 consecutive days sometimes with 2 sessions’ morning and afternoon. Quite intense at times but Dr Tarun Giroti was painstakingly patient and meticulous in his attention to detail, always ensuring I was comfortable and in no pain or distress. Everything was explained fully to me. Dr Tarun Giroti takes enormous pride in the aesthetic finish of his work, shaping and colour matching until it is just perfect. There were also two junior dentists in attendance acting as assistants and with Dr Giroti’s training and questions to them I found it interesting and informative plus it helped to distract me from thinking too much about the work going on in my mouth! The surgery required for putting in the implants was undertaken in the chair under sterile conditions. I was worried and nervous but felt very safe after talking to Dr Tarun Giroti. In fact the thought of the procedure was far worse than the reality and much faster than I had imagined. International patient coordinator of Dr Tarun Giroti was great as well making sure I was happy with my overall visit and finding my way about, booking taxis and offering cups of tea and friendly support. I have had the implants in place now for 2 months as well as 4 temporary crowns. I suffered no major discomfort, bruising or swelling and have had no problems or concerns with the quality of the work. I will be returning in another couple of weeks to complete the treatment. I was welcomed at the airport by them and we were driven in style to my accommodation. They were very attentive making sure I settled in ok and left me with a local mobile phone for me to use during my visit. The following morning they accompanied me to the clinic for my first meeting and assessment with Dr Tarun Giroti. The clinic was very clean, modern and light with all the latest equipment to hand. Dr Tarun Giroti is a stickler for detail and getting things just right taking a lot of time to explain what he could do and listening attentively to what I wanted to achieve which is so reassuring. One important thing to mention and something that really mattered to me is the time taken to complete the work. I was very discouraged by the thought of long drawn out procedures over several months with all the added inconvenience and dread. To achieve it all in the course of one full week with a follow up week for completion is worth a lot to me. It has also been a real pleasure to discover India, a lovely city and very friendly people. The positive experience kept me coming back to India to meet Dr Tarun Giroti, just for friendly visits with the staff.
