Madras Joint Replacement Center: Where Boomers Are Going For Knee Surgery

by PlacidWay | Madras Joint Replacement Center

As we grow older, we sometimes forget that our body isn’t as strong as our spirit. We enthusiastically agree to a game of hoops with our friends, some mogul-hopping or off-road biking, or we decide to start jogging again. Unfortunately, in many cases, older individuals (that new generation called Baby Boomers), end up with injured knee joints instead. This isn’t to say that boomers should sit in a chair and watch TV all day. Quite the contrary they may enjoy restored movement, range of motion and function through a variety of knee surgical procedures that will get you back on your feet without breaking the bank.

Nigerians Seek International Healthcare Options

by Denise Wang

Nigerians continue to travel beyond borders for healthcare options not offered at home. Nigerians are not the only individuals to engage in such practices, as growing numbers of individuals who live in countries without access to medical treatment and healthcare options are venturing to destinations such as Southeast Asia, which provides a growing number of healthcare providers in the fields of orthopedics, cardiac care, obesity and bariatric surgical options, weight loss management and general health and surgical care.

While the healthcare system in Nigeria provides adequate care for many of its citizens, political as well as economic instability in the country has driven the availability of health care away from many of its citizens. Specialty health services, treatments and procedures not available in Nigeria are available in destinations such as India, Thailand, Singapore, or in locations found in Turkey and Croatia.

by PlacidWay

Middle-class Nigerians are venturing beyond African borders for affordable and quality healthcare services in destinations such as India, where family members may benefit from excellent, quality, and affordable treatments in a multitude of medical fields, including eye care, dental care, wellness programs, alternative treatments, cancer therapies, orthopedic surgical procedures, cardiac care, and chronic illness treatments.

It has long been known that the overall healthcare system in Nigeria has suffered in recent years caused by social and economic difficulties. Millions of Nigerians are seeking more adequate medical care or health care systems to treat infants, children or adults for a multitude of illnesses and disease processes, and they’re looking outside their own borders to do so.

Medical Travel for Nigerians Points to India
Health care services are extremely limited in this poor African country, leaving millions of families burdened by staggering costs of medical or healthcare, costs that prevent many from seeking any healthcare services whatsoever. Finding adequate and quality healthcare is also extremely difficult, and substandard products in technology and healthcare services adds to the burden. Because of such, Nigerians are looking for quality and affordable healthcare elsewhere.

Cancer Treatment Abroad

Cancer Treatments Overview
Cancer can strike any gender or age group. Depending on the cancer type, various cancer treatments may be initiated in an effort to eradicate or kill cancer cells. Chemotherapy treatment, radiotherapy treatment, and breast cancer surgery are the most common types of treatments that battle multiple forms of cancer. However, cancer treatments vary according to the stage of cancer is discovered, as well as location and overall health of the patient. Cancer staging is typically defined as Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3 and Stage 4, ranging from early and localized to those that have spread throughout the body.

Cancer Treatments
Depending on the cancer types discovered, physicians will determine which options or alternative cancer treatments are best in every situation.  In some cases, a patient may have a choice of procedures or treatments, while other times, they will not. Certain factors will determine which treatment will provide optimal results, including what type of cancer tumor, what organs or tissues are affected, as well as what stage of cancer is in. The earlier the stage of cancer treatment development, the better for treatment prognosis. Overall health and age may also factor in to cancer treatment plans.

Chemotherapy involves the use of medications to attack and kill cancer cells. Many people experience side effects such as hair loss, nausea, and weight loss with chemotherapy treatment. However, new advancements in medications have helped to reduce many of the side effects formerly associated with chemotherapy radiotherapy. This type of treatment is used when cancer has metastasized, or spread to other areas within the body. In many cases, it is used in conjunction with cancer surgery and radiation therapy treatment. In most cases, chemotherapy radiotherapy will be initiated after surgery of cancer has removed the cancer tumor or tissues from the body.
