FRENCH MEDICAL SYSTEM
First of all, it is worth noting that costs for medical services in France are among the most attractive ones. The quality and the results are also better recognized than in other leading countries in the medical tourism industry. Why do most people choose France exclusively for leisure and travel? The reason is that the original French healthcare system did not provide the possibility of accepting foreign residents for treatment. Those who wished to receive a high-quality French treatment faced a large number of insurmountable formalities, ending up in a waste of time that the foreign patient didn’t always have.
At this moment, France is opening its doors to anyone who wants to get a first-class treatment at an affordable price. France has an extensive history of discoveries in the field of medicine. Because of this, the French medicine deservedly takes the first place in the list of the World Health Organization. In addition to important discoveries in the field of medicine, France also accounts for more than 1,500 private clinics and more than 30 universities, where professors pass on their knowledge to future medical specialists.
In France, there are many great qualified medical professionals working in clinics and hospitals. In these medical institutions, the medical equipments are regularly maintained; high-tech and innovative treatment methods are introduced. All health care institutions undergo regular examinations by the French National Health Authority. Certifications shall be obtained not only by the clinics but also by all practitioners who, furthermore, keep on learning specific developments about their speciality. In order to maintain the quality of medicine at the highest level and improve the procedures, the French medical scientists are constantly working on medical researches.
The result of this work includes numerous medical discoveries. Thanks to these researches, French specialists can diagnose “potential” uterine cancer by finding the cells which can subsequently transform into cancerous ones. Early diagnostics can prevent disease or provide a successful treatment. France ranks first among the countries in which infertility can be successfully treated. It also shows the highest percentage of successfulness in vitro fertilization.

in health care institutions in France
Most French clinics successfully treat orphan and severe diseases. For instance, the percentage of full recovery of hepatitis C patients (genotype 2 and 3) is more than 80%. French doctors were the first to use the method of radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer treatment. And this is not an exhaustive list of examples that place France among the leading countries in the medical field. Thus, it’s safe to say that the French are the best not only in tourism, gastronomy, and fashion, but are also the indisputable champions in the medical field.

All about breast implants and breast surgery
Mammary hypoplasia is defined by the underdeveloped volume of breasts in relation to the general physique of the patient. It can be a result of underdevelopment of the gland during puberty, or it may appear again because of loss of glandular volume (pregnancy, weight loss, hormonal imbalance...). Lack of volume can be associated with ptosis ("falling" breasts with the sagging of the gland, stretched skin and too low areoles). The operation can be carried out at any age, starting from the age of 18. A minor patient, as a rule, cannot be subjected to aesthetic breast augmentation. The operation, however, is possible in case of significant hypoplasia or reconstruction because of tuberous breasts or agenesis (underdevelopment) of the breast. Types of breast implants Modern breast implants include a shell and a filler. The shell always consists of a silicone elastomer. However, the prostheses differ in their content, depending on the substance, which fills the shel...

An operation via virtual reality at the University Hospital of Montpellier
The operation on the back using virtual reality was carried out on Tuesday, November 7, at the hospital of the University of Montpellier. This is the first such operation in the world. This Tuesday in the operating room of Gui-de-Chauliac, in Montpellier, it was quite intense, and this is not surprising, given the fact that such an operation has never been carried out in the world. However, even such a tense atmosphere could not unsettle the "junior surgeon", who operated with virtual reality glasses for the first time in his life. Spinal osteosynthesis via virtual reality at the University Hospital of Montpellier The operation, spinal osteosynthesis, includes the fixation of several vertebrae to stabilize them and is considered ordinary. It was a sixty-year-old patient suffering from chronic back pain. In addition to his gloves, his mask, and his traditional blue blouse, the surgeon was wearing a special device.
