Arthroscopic Acl Reconstruction
I did a lot of research before coming to Mexico for such a major surgery. When I found Dr. Mendoza and read about his experience around the world with minimally invasive hip replacement, I felt fairly sure he was the surgeon I wanted for my procedure. I then made contact with his assistant, and from that point forward, I knew I had made the right decision. She and Dr. Mendoza are warm and friendly, as well as professional and quick to respond. After viewing my x-rays, Dr. Mendoza told me things about my hip, and why I had developed my problem, things my American doctors had never bothered to explain. My American doctors always treated me as if they didn't want to be bothered and were trying to get rid of me as soon as possible. My first visit with Dr. Mendoza lasted 45 minutes, and he treated me as if he had all day to spend, answering any questions I had. My hospital room was a beautiful suite, where my husband had a nice leather couch to sleep on. The nursing staff was very knowledgeable and prompt to respond if I needed anything. After leaving the hospital, I had a lot of pain on my first night, and Dr. Mendoza called my husband and prescribed a heavier medication. It says on his letterhead in Spanish "house calls"! I can't say enough good about my experience with Dr. Oscar Mendoza and his staff. Thank you, Dr. Mendoza!

We were recommended to Dr. Mendoza by Dr. Torres in Mazatlan as a highly skilled and meticulous surgeon. I had waited in pain for close to 3years in Canada for treatment ; The surgery was completed 2 days after arriving in Guadalajara. The surgery was perfect and there were no significant pain levels. The follow up after surgery items ei. walker, ambulance trip back to our hotel, and daily visit by the physiotherapist were all organized by Dr. Mendoza's professional staff. This is medical care at its best and incredible value for the price. I see a golf course in my future.

Меня зовут Бегенч я из Туркменистана. В июне 2016 у среднего сына была травма колена. Повредил во время тренировки по футболу. Он у меня планирует заниматься им профессионально. Наши Ашкабадские врачи предложили оперировать но после нее сын пог бы позабыть о спорте. В итоге решили ехать в Турцию. Ромой подсказали нам родственники, которые были уже у них на лечении. После предварительной операции врач тоже пришел к мнению проведения оперции но в отличии колег из Туркменистана он обещал что операция (ортроскопия ) никак не повлияет на его будующую карьеру. Слово врачи сдержали. правда понадобилась двух месячная физиотерапия но результатом мы однозначно довольны. Бегенч Атамурадов

After consultation with Amy Saracoglu the International Patient Coordinator for VISITANDCARE I made the decision to travel to the Hizmet Memorial Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey for my bi-lateral knee replacement. I arrived at Istanbul Airport 6 hours later than expected due to airline delays and having contacted the hospital earlier, the driver was waiting for me. I was taken to the account desk and after depositing my payment shown to my room. Monitoring started immediately with the surgeon, doctors and nurses. Monday morning I was taken down for my bi-lateral Knee operation then awoke Monday evening in the ICU. The nurses could not have been more helpful. I was returned to my room Tuesday and kept under constant pain management and supervision. During the next 4 days until my discharge on Saturday I was given every care and concern possible by all involved, nothing was left to chance. After being given X-rays, medical reports etc. I checked into my hotel. My trusted hospital driver, who looked after me like a personal valet for my full 12 days in Turkey collected me for return supervisory visits. After 3 weeks since the operation, now back at home, I am capable of walking short distances unaided. I recommend the Memorial Hizmet and all the personnel for the treatment I received highly enough and believe with the advise given to me by (Visit and Care), the Hospital selection , although I am unable to compare with others, was the correct choice and would suggest that any persons requiring any of their available treatments should seriously consider them as an option.

In the Orthopedics Department, modern diagnosis techniques and state-of-the-art treatment choices are provided for the whole muscular and skeletal system, and for spinal diseases and traumas.

Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery is the branch of surgery that spans a wide range of procedures designed to correct problems affecting the human musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic treatments, including surgical and non-surgical procedures, are designed to address common skeletal problems, such as trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.

Other musculoskeletal disorders may manifest in symptoms, such as aches, stiffness, discomfort--and more severe cases that require a heightened surgical procedure.


Types of orthopedic treatments carried out by orthopedic surgeons can range from traction, hand reconstruction, joint replacement, spinal fusion, to amputation. Orthopedic surgeons can also treat broken bones, stains and dislocations- using general, regional, or local anesthesia.

Orthopedic surgery involves incorporating foreign material in the body, such as screws, wires, pins, tongs and prosthetics to clutch damaged bones in the proper places or, sometimes, to replace the damaged bone completely. In recent years, advanced improvements have been made in the development of joints, artificial limbs and the materials used in tissue engineering.

Orthopedic surgery risks and side effects may include mild to severe inflammation at the site where the foreign material was placed in the body, infection as the result of the surgery and damage to nerves or to the spinal cord.

Thousands of people undergo orthopedic surgery each year to recover from injuries or restore lost function of the skeletal system. Success rates of orthopedic surgery depend on the patient’s age, medical condition treated and aftercare rehabilitative therapy.

 

Orthopedic Surgery

Knee Replacement
Knee Replacement surgery or knee arthroplasty is a type of an orthopedic treatment that aims to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve the pain or a disability that hinders patients from performing the simplest of activities.

Chronic pain in the knees can be caused by a number of factors including arthritis, a fracture, break or a medical condition that weakens the joint. If patients suffering from incurring knee pain are not relieved by anti-inflammatory tablets and are still experiencing great difficulty to perform daily activities such as standing, bending and light walking; knee replacement surgery can be a viable option.

Orthopedic patients carry out the surgery by removing the damaged, diseased cartilage, tissue and bone that forms the knee joint and replacing the bone with an artificial device (prosthesis) made from metal, ceramic or plastic.

Hip Replacement
A hip replacement is an orthopedic surgical procedure that is designed to remove diseased or damaged hip joint and cartilage, replacing it with an artificial hip functioning naturally as the human hip. The majority of implanted hip joints are made of metal and plastic.

Orthopedic surgeons usually determine the size and the design of the artificial hip, depending on the patient’s height, weight and his/her medical condition. Prior to the hip replacement surgery, patients will be placed under a general or spinal anesthesia.Total hip replacement surgery replaces damaged cartilage with new joint material in a step-by-step process.

Carpal Tunnel
Carpal tunnel surgery is another type of orthopedic treatment which intends to treat a condition, known as carpel tunnel syndrome, affecting the main nerve connecting the wrist, hand and forearm and the meridian nerve.

The carpal tunnel is an area at the base of the hand which holds the tendons, ligaments and meridian nerve. When this nerve becomes pressured, numbness, tingling, and sometimes pain of the affected fingers and hand may occur and reach the forearm. The goal of the carpel tunnel surgery is to relieve the pressure on the median nerve in the wrist.

There are two treatment techniques which can be involved in the carpel tunnel procedure: open surgery or endoscopic surgery.

Spinal Fusion
Spinal fusion surgery is a serious orthopedic procedure to fuse together two or more vertebrae in the spine. This back surgery procedure is performed to reduce spinal pain, stabilize the spine after injury, or to correct spinal cuvatures for conditions, such as scolosis. Spinal fusion surgery can also be used for medical conditions affecting the disk or after removal of tumors on the spine.

Herniated Disc Surgery
Vertebrae are the bones that form the spine which are cushioned by small, spongy discs. The function of these discs is to act as shock absorbers for the spine while keeping it nimble and flexible.

However when the disc is damaged, it may break open, a spinal disorder known as herniated disc.

Herniated disc can cause unbearable pain, numbness and weakness in the area of the body where the nerve travels.

If the herniated disc exists in the lower back, it can cause pain and numbness in the buttock and down the leg. Herniated disc surgery involves making a small incision in the skin to reach the aching desk and cut away the piece of the disc that bulges out.

This surgery is known as discetomy and can be performed in several techniques: prosthetic intervertebral disc replacement, endoscopic laser discectomy and open discectomy.

 

Cost of Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery is a serious procedure that can be costly for patients in the US and Europe, due to the complexity of the surgery and the materials used which include implants, interference screws, and bone-suture anchors. Adding up the hospital charges and surgeons fees, patients end up paying gobs of money- where they can be paying 70 percent of the cost of the procedure in an affordable medical tourist destination.

Traveling for orthopedic surgery can be a reasonable solution to the high cost of medical and surgical facilities in the US.

Rehabilitative therapy in many medical tourism countries is an appealing option to US and European patients as these destinations offer a relaxing environment to recover and heal from your orthopedic surgery peacefully.
