Bone-marrow-transplant Bone marrow transplant is a curative line of actions performed to restore bone marrow that has been defiled by disease, infection, or chemotherapy. This process demands transplanting blood stem cells, which travel to the bone marrow where they construct new blood cells and aid the development of new marrow. Bone marrow is the elastic, fatty tissue interior of your bones. It generates the following constituents of the blood:  red blood cells, they carry oxygen and dietary throughout the body  white blood cells, which protect from infection  platelets, which controls the formation of blood clots Bone marrow also contains unformed blood-forming stem cells known as hematopoietic stem cells or HSCs. Most cells are already modified and can only make a replica of themselves. However, these stem cells are unspecialized, meaning they have the ability to multiply through cell division and either remain stem cells or differentiate and mature into many different kinds of blood cells. The HSC found in the bone marrow will construct new blood cells for the whole of your life. A bone marrow transplant re-store your harmed stem cells with healthy cells. This assist your body to make enough white blood cells, plate

liver-transplant A liver transplant, also called a hepatic transplant, is a surgical process to replace an unhealthy liver. A liver that no longer functions properly is replaced with a whole or partial healthy liver. The donor liver either comes from a deceased or live donor.Having a healthy liver is essential to survival because your liver is responsible for purification of blood and extraction of toxins from your body. Liver transplant is a last-step measure for chronic (long-term) liver diseases and severe acute (sudden onset) liver deformity. Several people who have undergone liver transplant go on lead perfectly normal lives. The liver transplant survivor rate is also extravagant. Signs and symptoms of diseased liver Gastrointestinal bleeding: As the liver becomes more defiled, the resistance to portal blood flow increases leading to increased pressure in the portal venous system. This portal hypertension allows alternative routes for blood to get back to the heart. These fragile veins, called varices, often line portions of the gastrointestinal tract, especially the esophagus and the stomach, and are susc

IN VITRO FERTILIZATION In vitro fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) basically referred to as IVF. IVF is a process of fertilization by deracinating eggs and withdrawing a sperm sample and then physically fusing the egg with sperm outside the body in a test tube or petri dish. The process involves extracting the ovum from the mother’s body and letting the sperm fertilize the egg in a liquid in the laboratory. Once the egg is fertilized and the embryo culture (2-6 days) is done the fertilized zygote is placed back to its natural place, that is the mother’s womb with the intention of getting a successful pregnancy.

WHEN TO OPT FOR IVF?

IVF is opted for the treatment of infertility and gestational surrogacy. A fertilized egg may be infused into the surrogate’s uterus and the resulting child is genetically unrelated to the surrogate. It may help the childless parent to conceive a baby encountering problems such as fallopian tube blockage in females or low sperm count in males or when the other processes have proved unsuccessful.

WHY IVF?

IVF is a highly recommended technological procedure which has proved to be most successful amongst all the procedures used by far.

Recently I have get a call from Mr. Hainik living in Algeria, asking that my 6 months baby boy is having hole in his heart which is called by doctor Atrial septal defect. I would like to know is there any another approach to close the opening without having open heart surgical procedure. Can ASD/ VSD closure can be done just by medical management? An atrial septal deformity is a hole in heart which separates the two upper chambers medically called as the right atrium and left atrium. We can see the hole in the different part of the septum. Now a days doctors are practicing to close the hole without the open heart surgery but it’s totally depend on the location of the hole in heart. The hole in secundum artrial septal and patent foramen ovale (PFO) can be close without the surgical procedure. This procedure is done in the cardiac catheterization lab without surgery. But we have to know that all the atrial defect in the child can’t handle without the surgery. The Non-surgical procedure to close the hole of heart is by implanting a device into the hole to "plug it up" from inside the heart. This is practiced by passing a little tube (catheter) from a vein situated in the crotch and up into the heart. The methodology is performed in the Cath-Lab and doesn't require open heart procedure. Many medical devices are available for this procedure and the results

heart-blockage Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) is most common procedure for heart blockage in India and havealmost 100% success rate in good hospitals. Before going for CABG, It is mandatory to confirm how many arteries are blockages by Angiography (CAG). I am sharing the most common causes of heart problems but remember some people have by birth heath defect so there is not a particular or known reason for blockage. As per medical sciences, main causes for congenital heart blockage are due to autoimmune disease such as lupus which is reach to a child from his/her mother’s umbilical cord or heart didn’t develop correctly in womb. We will try to find out the causes of heart blockage which developed later in life; 1. During the any type of previous surgery, can be a cause for cardiac defects, as sometimes the electrical system of heart didn’t work properly 2. Arteries are damaged by previous heart attack which can becaused by spasm of a coronary artery. Due to spasm in coronary arteries blood circulation restricted its function to supply blood to the heart. 3. Changes in your genes can also a cause of arterial blockage. 4. Cardiac disease like heart failure or arterial plaque or infection of heart muscles. Heart failu

Medical-Tourism

As a Medical Tourism professional over a decade, I have witnessed thousands of complicated and non-complicated surgeries in India and very proud to say that 99.9% surgeries are well-performed and safe. This is because doctors take a strict precaution PRE and POST surgeries. I have seen that nursing staffs and doctors are more careful about patient post-surgery than the pre-surgery to minimize the infection ratio. They follow the guideline set by WHO to improve medical communication and reduce medical complication and negligence during the surgery. Most of the hospitals have no verbal communication policy except emergency. WHO suggests that failed communication in Operation Theatre mostly leads to delay medical recovery and/or infection.

  India is considered one of the cost effective medical tourism destination but I would like to add that cost is very least reason for the growth of Indian medical tourism. No patient is ready to do surgery with high risk what so ever cost is. They are only bothered about quality and safety. Of course it is best if quality and safety comes with minimum budget.
