Duodenal Switch Surgery Package in Ahmedabad, India

Are you tired of being obese and finally decided to undergo bariatric surgery?

Why not choose the most efficient of the procedures: the duodenal switch surgery!

The duodenal switch procedure combines the malabsorptive and restrictive weight loss surgery methods. By reducing the size of the stomach and by bypassing part of the small intestine, the  procedure helps patients reduce the food intake, but also the calories intake. This surgery has proved to be very effective when it comes to losing weight and treating metabolic syndrome. Due to drastic weight loss, patients also end up controlling their associated diseases. This surgery takes place in two stages. The first stage consists of Sleeve Gastrectomy followed by Gastric Bypass after a few months.

Benefits of Duodenal Switch Procedure:

  • The amount of excess weight loss is of 75% in the first year after the procedure
  • Less restrictive on the food consumed compared to other bariatric surgeries
  • Offers the highest levels of malabsorption

PGD for Gender Selection Needed for Family Balancing Surrounded by Controversy

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a reproductive technology used with an IVF cycle. PGD can be used for diagnosis of a genetic disease in early embryos prior to implantation and pregnancy. In addition, this technology can be utilized in the field of assisted reproduction for screening and diagnosis of unbalanced inheritance of chromosome abnormalities, such as translocations or inversions.

Gender selection, or sex selection, is a fertility procedure used to choose the gender of a baby prior to conception. While the desire to choose whether a baby would be a boy or a girl has been present throughout human existence, it is only recently that the technology to do so has become clinically possible and available. With improvements in gender selection technology, demand for gender selection has also been growing steadily.

In recent years, pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) of embryos in clinical assisted reproduction has become increasingly widespread. Besides preventing birth defects in the offspring of parents who are either sufferers or carriers of life- threatening or debilitating genetic diseases, PGD can also be indicated for the routine screening of chromosomal abnormalities and genetic defects.

Understanding Rectal Resection

Cancer Overview

Surgical removal of a tumor is the cornerstone of curative oncologic therapy for localized rectal cancer. In addition to removing the rectal tumor, removing the fat and lymph nodes in the area of a rectal tumor is also necessary to minimize the chance that any cancer cells might be left behind.

However, because the rectum is in the pelvis and is close to the anal sphincter (the muscle that controls the ability to hold stool in the rectum), rectal surgery can be difficult. With more deeply invading tumors and when the lymph nodes are involved, chemotherapy and radiation therapy are usually included in the treatment course to increase the chance that all microscopic cancer cells are removed or killed.

What is rectal resection?

Anterior resection of the rectum is an operation to remove part or all of the rectum. It is most usually performed for patients with rectal cancer. Many patients with rectal cancer will have radiotherapy  before the operation. In many cases the operation can be performed via alaparoscopic (keyhole) surgical technique.

Crowded Dental Tourism Market

A Challenge for Providers’ Survival

Dental Tourism Market Line 1


With increasing awareness of the potential of the dental tourism, more and more dental clinics are trying to get into the business of attracting “foreign patients”. But unfortunately all are relaying on the same message – we are the best dentists, we provide the best dental services, in the most beautiful location, and offer dental services at 70% less compared to the US prices for the same services.

PlacidWay, a leader in global medical travel and tourism, has turned its attention towards dental industry, engaging in studies and doing in-depth research regarding global dental tourism. Pramod Goel, CEO and founder of PlacidWay, has been carefully analyzing the results and found out what are the key factors when choosing a medical provider and what are the main trends of this industry.

The dental price factor!

Dental Tourism Market Line 3

The dental tourism concept brings a perception to consumers seeking dental care of significant savings if they choose to go abroad for dental work. Based on claims made by various clinics these could range from 50-70% savings. For example, a dental implant in the US costs around $4,000 and $3,500 in the UK. Prices can go as low as $1,500 in Thailand, $1,000 in Turkey, $850 in Mexico, Costa Rica and Colombia, $750 in India and Argentina.

Prices for dental veneers can reach $1,800 in the US and $870 in the UK, but drop as low as $300 in Turkey, $250 in Thailand, Colombia and India, $220 in Serbia, $200 in Philippines and only $150 in Malaysia. Patients will pay $2,000 for a dental crown in the US and $1,000 in the UK, but only $400 in Mexico, $350 in Venezuela and Thailand, $300 in Turkey and India and $100 in Philippines.

People can now avail same skills (e.g., ADA certified doctors), same equipment, and same product from same manufacturer (e.g., implants) at a much lower cost abroad. This is due to the fact that the product pricing varies by country, malpractice insurance and related infrastructure costs are lower in these emerging dental tourism markets.

Price being the main driving force towards the expansion of the industry, countries such as India, Thailand, Mexico, Costa Rica, Colombia, Turkey and countries in eastern Europe have a big advantage due to lower cost of dental services. They can compete on price!

Stem Cell Therapy for Diabetes In Europe

Regenerative Therapy for Diabetes in European Clinics line

Diabetes is one of the most rapidly increasing health crisis in modern society. Complications of diabetes include heart disease, blindness, nerve damage and kidney damage. High quality medical treatments, affordable prices, accessible airfare, but also high success rates are the main reasons why medical tourists all over the world prefer Europe.


What is diabetes?

In diabetes, the body does not make enough insulin and/or doesn’t respond to it properly. Diabetes occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the pancreatic beta cells so that they become damaged and can no longer make insulin. This means the levels of sugar in the blood stay high all the time, which can lead to long-term damage to the body.

Regenerative Stem Cells Treatment for Diabetes in Europe

Stem Cell Therapy is a revolutionary treatment that has shown positive results in diabetes patients over the years.

  • Embryonic Stem Cell Therapy

How does Regenerative Treatment for Diabetes work?

NO Scars FUT Hair Transplant
in Istanbul, Turkey

Do you wish to look younger and recover your hair?

Get a natural hairline with FUT hair transplant invisible scar in Turkey!

FUT is one of the most reliable hair transplant methods in use today. It is short for Follicular Unit Transplantation or strip method hair transplant, because it involves the transplant of a strip of hair as opposed to the individual hair follicles transplant (used in FUE method).

The approximate number of follicles required in one particular hair transplant surgery is determined by the hair transplant surgeon. In your case, Dr. A.E. Karadeniz will assess your scalp and discuss with you to determine the recipient area, the location and size of the donor area, the shape of the reconstructed hairline and the resulted hair density expected.

Why FUT Hair Transplant in Turkey?

The FUT-Strip Method performed at the AEK Hair Institute will involve the removal of a small patch of skin with follicles, under local anesthesia. The follicles are then divided into small units under the microscope, so in the end each unit will contain between one and four follicles. These follicle units will be stored in normal saline substance, so they will remain active until they will be transplanted to the planned areas.

NO Scars hair transplant with the trichophytic incision and closure!

Orientation and quantity are most important when a hair transplant is performed, so Dr. A. E. Karadeniz will carefully consider the number of follicles in each transplanted unit and carefully harvest each hair strip using the trichophytic method.


Trichophytic closure involves making the initial incisions parallel to the hair follicles, and then, on one side of the resulting wound, make a second “trichophytic” incision in a very controlled fashion – trimming off a thin strip of epithelium and with it the tips of the hair follicles below. This trimming (right under the epithelium) is still very high on the hair root and it does not affect hair growth. After the harvesting, the edges are pulled together with the untrimmed side covering the trimmed hairs so the hairs will grow up through the scar, hiding it perfectly.

With the FUT hair transplant, the hair will start growing within 10-16 weeks after surgery.

The greatest advantage to the FUT or Strip hair transplant method is the speedy recovery and the post-operatory invisible scarring.

Benefits of FUT in Turkey by AEK Hair Institute:

  • All grafts are extracted carefully by Dr. A. E. Karadeniz
  • Trichophytic closure technique with an invisible strip scar
  • Very high quality grafts prepared by trained team
  • Unshaven donor area
  • Very natural hairline design
