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.

It’s a difficult-to-resist recipe: top quality high tech dental surgery; astonishing low prices; a warm, agreeable climate; no waiting list hassle. Oh, and perhaps a relaxing dip in the hotel pool afterwards. CTG Healthcare has been providing top quality dental work for an increasing number of British people fed up with high prices and lengthy NHS waiting lists for some time.

No surprise that CTG, based in historic Izmir, host to many international cultural festivals, has snapped up Overseas Living’s Best Dental Clinic in Turkey award. “We’re hugely pleased with this award,” says CTG‘s Cagdas Sonmez, a chief patient co-ordinator at the flourishing healthcare company. “It really recognises the up-to-the-minute high quality work we’ve been doing for a long time.”

Seven Corners Announces First Insurance Program for International Medical Tourism

by Seven Corners

Seven Corners announces the launch of the first worldwide medical tourism insurance program that reduces travel-related and medical risks associated with patients electing to have surgical procedures abroad.

Medical tourism, the practice of traveling outside of a person’s home country to obtain health care services at a significantly reduced rate, is expected to multiply by 100 percent from 2007 to 2010, according to a study conducted by Deloitte. Medical tourists most often travel abroad to obtain elective procedures such as dental, Lasik, bariatric, lumbar/disc, knee/hip replacement, infertility and plastic surgeries. According to the study, costs for these procedures can be up to 90 percent less than what a person may pay in their home country.

“Medical tourism insurance is a natural progression of Seven Corners’ core competencies. We’re excited about introducing such an innovative and valuable product to the growing medical tourism industry,” said Jim Krampen, co-Founder and Executive Officer of Seven Corners. “The support and confidence of our underwriters at Lloyd’s of London have allowed us to address the specific needs and concerns of the medical tourist.”
