Telemedicine. What is it?
Digital technologies are quickly developing nowadays, and our life has changed greatly with the help of it.

Digital revolution has influenced medicine as well. The Internet is used for the following in the sphere of medicine:
- The second opinion (additional consultati..
What is medical over-examination and what kind of cancer is impossible to die of?
A typical example of useless diagnostics.
All you know, that at radiation risk iodine prophylaxis is required. Additional Iodine consumption is necessary to prevent accumulation of radioactive iodine that can cause thyroid cancer. However it is impossible to die of thyroid cancer, it doesn’t progress and doesn’t evolve. A person can live with this disease long full life. Unfortunately, sometimes it becomes difficult for the doctor to explain to his patient that this pathology doesn’t require intervention, and it’s much more useful to refuse treatment at all. Very oft..

The TRV chair helps to treat vertigo and balance disorders
In modern medicine, it is difficult to imagine the treatment and diagnosis of vertigo and balance disorders without the use of the TRV chair.
Unfortunately, you will not find such a device in every medical facility, but if you address Medifrance Solution, they will surely find you a clinic in France where this technological miracle is not something surprising but has become a fairly ordinary device.
BPPV (Benign Positional Paroxysmal Vertigo) most often occurs due to the movement of earwax in the inner ear, which prevents it from functioning properly.

All stages of facelift surgery in France
I always wanted to do a mini-lift and always knew that I would not trust the surgeons from my country because of too much risk. In my opinion, health is more important than money.
So, I started daily Web surfing searching for plastic surgery abroad.
In Israel, it was expensive and … too hot for me. Turkey was not considered in principle, the States are far away, and they are not famous for their high-quality plasticity. In the end, I doubted between France, Switzerland, and Germany.
I sent requests and received a response from France. They sent me a video of how the ..

What determines the result of plastic surgery?
Any plastic surgery is a stress for a body. Even if the patient has perfect health, he still needs to follow certain rules, so that the result of plastic surgery will be as natural as possible. Of course, a lot depends on the plastic surgeon but not everything.
The famous French plastic surgeon Jean-Louis Durand notes that the patient himself also affects the quality of plastic surgery. And it’s not even about the individual features of the skin but about things that the patient can change himself. You need to be prepared for the fact that you have to give up many of..
Lipofilling of the face, breast, and buttocks
As soon as the first liposuction surgery was performed, plastic surgeons had an idea to reuse the extracted fat to fill another place of the body.
This method of own fat transfer is called lipofilling.
Lipofilling in modern medicine
This method was initially disappointing: injected fat showed a tendency to resorption in a significant proportion, resulting in the short-lived and unreliable results.
However, plastic surgeons did not dwell on these first disappointments and tried to understand the reasons for these failures. The results were improving step by step, but o..

Brain implant that effectively treats depression
Deep brain stimulation is an effective remedy for depression when another treatment is ineffective.
While many other treatments that try to fight against depression often show unsatisfactory results, new techniques are developed and have the ambition to improve the care of many patients deprived of real help. One of them is the method of deep brain stimulation.
Under this barbaric name hides an apparatus that can indeed frighten at first. A metal rod is implanted transcranially in a particular area of the brain. This electrode sends electrical signals to the neurons,..

Complications of the hip replacement surgery
If we cannot fully inform you of all complications, including those that are exceptional, it is still possible to tell you which ones are the most serious. It is also possible to give you an indication of the rates of complications, with the following reservations:
This rate varies in part with the surgeon’s experience. Indeed, it is difficult to give you percentages of complications because they depend essentially on the own reactivity of the patients (age, weight, tobacco, alcohol …) and also their own health: everyone knows, for example, that diabetes increases sur..
Why is a bone marrow transplant necessary?
The aim of this difficult operation is in replacing important stem cells from the healthy donor to the patient. In such a way today, doctors can cure diseases, which were earlier considered as incurable. Unfortunately, in the clinics that are not located in such developed countries as France, achievements of gene therapy are close to zero.
Even if you will be able to find a good specialist, he won’t have the equipment like is in our clinics or his services will be much more expensive, than coming to France.
In a modern clinic, a bone marrow transplant provides a mini..

Cataract surgery or why cataract is not a verdict
Let’s start with the understanding of the cataract, its symptoms and diagnoses and only then will we move on to the treatment of this disease. The cataract is a quite widespread pathology of the eyes, which is caused not only by lenticular opacity, but also by the loss of its elasticity. This process often leads to various visual impairments.
Nowadays, the cataract is one of the most widespread diseases of the eyes. Older persons are the ones most exposed to getting this disease. However, the cataract infection cases are increasingly found among younger people. This i..
Crib on how to choose the correct plastic surgeon
Current trends in the field of plastic surgery have built a negative attitude to plasticity. It is not your everyday person who is ready to explicitly recognize, that he has had plasticity, and there are many reasons for it. One of them is a public opinion, which says that it is necessary to love yourself for who you are.
It is much simpler to do plastic surgery, than to work on yourself. In addition, you should admit the influence of attacks and reproaches concerning the fact, that this is a pleasure for the rich, who already pretend they have money to burn. However..
Oncology check up

However, specialists agree in opinion that today there is no method, which guarantees healing from cancer. Therefore, the question of how to be saved from cancer remains relevant.
In the field of cancer, hundreds of researches are annually conducted, and a lot of money is spared on their financing. Practice and long-term observations of high quality specialists in this area allows obtaining data..
March 3 – 4, 2016
The Health Tourism Industry conference in Vienna was an eye-opening event that made us look at the medical tourism from a different angle and compare French medicine with other medical systems in the world. A year worth effort of learning everything about the healthcare field would be still less than all the information we received during these two days. Friendly atmosphere and high-level settings have made it very easy to participate and establish new contacts. This conference has provided great networking opportunitie..
Everything you should know about medical tourism facilitators
It is interesting to note a certain undeserved demonization in the facilitating field in the sphere of medical tourism. The most amusing fact is that in different areas people constantly use services of organizers and do not even think about it. There are a lot of providers in our lives: marriage and travel agencies, employment agencies, etc. Even the bakery near your house is a provider between you and a bread factory.
As for medical organizers, without them it is difficult to present medical tourism. Their goal is to simplify the treatment and the patient’s stay in ..
