News of the French medicine

Luxury-France
Truth and lie about treatment in France
France is the luxury country, treatment in France is very expensive!     False   Really, many Parisian clinics are pretty expensive, however, their patients understand that they pay for the high level of service, but not for the quality of the medicine. Everybody knows that quality of the French medicine is high throughout the country, even in towns. On average, the prices in France are 20% lower than in Germany. If you want to get high-quality treatment and not to overpay for the image of the city, go for treatment to Lyon or another city that is not very popular among tourists. (hyperlink to our prices). The French are famous for the fashion, food but not for the medicine!     False   The Government of France allocates more than 70 billion euros a year for the development of the medicine. Every second clinic is equipped with robotic surgery, namely, in France, there is only in the whole Europe room of 3D surgery. And we don't e...
EU Directive
Don’t wait for an HSE operation!
Why do patients in Ireland – both North and South – have to wait for a hospital operation for months, and in some cases even for years, unless they have private medical insurance or they can afford expensive private surgery? Public hospital waiting lists on both sides of the Irish border are growing longer on a weekly basis. Certainly it is true: good health is priceless. But just because you can afford to go private, does that mean that you should be obliged to, and spend a great deal of money that you will never get back? There is now another alternative. European Union Directive 2011/24/EU on the Patient’s Right to seek Cross-border Healthcare was passed into law across all the countries of the European Union by 2014. It means that if a person is legally resident and covered by the public health system in one European Union Member State, he or she can go for medical treatment to another EU country and claim back some, or all, of the cost of the procedure from thei...
Macron moves En Marche
The French hospitals, "En Marche!"
Presidential elections took place a little over a month ago in France and Emmanuel Macron was elected as the new president. This is the youngest French president in the country's history. Earlier, Macron was an investment banker and in a consequence the Minister of Economy and Finance. It is not hard to fathom that the new president has no problem with the economy. His world famous slogan sounds as "En Marche!" that means "Forward!" in English. And France moves in this direction now. The French medicine isn’t an exception. Now, the French hospitals move "En Marche!" What does it mean? It means the following: earlier the French state clinics had no right to be engaged in commercial activities. This ban didn’t just complicate, but often made treatment impossible for foreign citizens. Respectively, such a direction as medical tourism was very little developed in France until now. For this reason, even today not all foreign patients know about an accessible opportunity for tre...

innovation treatment of thyroid gland cancer
Is it possible to make thyroid gland operations without scars?
We want to tell you about these operations, which allow deleting parts of a thyroid gland without making scars on your neck. What function does a thyroid gland have?   It secretes hormones, which are necessary for each cell’s work. People can't live without these hormones, therefore when the gland doesn't secret them in sufficient quantity, they must be systematically filled. What anomalies of a thyroid gland force you to consult a doctor?   Most often, it happens during the dysfunction of a thyroid gland, and when a non-cancerous or cancerous growth occurs. As for the function, this is about: Hyperfunction of a thyroid gland when it secretes too many hormones. It leads to an increased heart rate, excessive sweeting, tremor, and sleep issues... Hypofunction of a thyroid gland when it doesn't secret enough hormones. It leads to an energy loss, chill, and fatigue... Very often nodules are found incidentally as they have no symptoms.

HTI Conference
 March 3 - 4, 2016 Austria, Vienne  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 opportunities for meeting our future partners and collaborators. It gathered an international community that was open to sharing their knowledge of local markets. All of the presentations were very interesting and thought-provoking, furthermore, the debates were highly engaging and they gave us valuable perspectives of people from different countries. Next time we are planning to give a presentation as well in order to tell about French medic...
cryoablation
Cryoablation as an innovative cancer treatment method
It lies in our human nature that we never lose hope and always try to find an ultimate solution. So when such bad news as cancer fall on us, we are shocked and feel lost, but we keep on hoping we will get the right cure. No matter which stage we are at, what treatment we have already tried, what are the prognosis, we still try. Fortunately, medical specialists in France don’t lose hope either. They are always there to support you in such difficult times and to suggest yet another individually developed method to treat cancer. Back in 2008, they have offered cryoablation as an innovative treatment for small - sized tumors. Nowadays this technique is quite often used in France, as it reduces the period of hospitalization and recovery. On the contrary, the classic tumor ablation surgery can last more than three hours and keep the patient at the hospital for at least a week. The mini-invasive cryoablation method allows the patient to be discharged the following day, as there aren't alm...

Neurosurgery assisted with Virtual Reality
A world premiere:  France is known to be a country with an advanced medicine, especially when it comes to oncology.  It is gaining its popularity in the world thanks to the numerous oncologic markers and their interpretation art, mastered by the French oncologists. Also, thanks to the innovative treatment techniques that not only kills tumors but also improve the patients' comfort. It is not an overstatement to say that the French oncologic specialists take measured risks. It was proven yet another time by the neurosurgery Professor Philippe Ménéi, who operated on his patient’s brain using virtual reality. The brain is a very complicated organ to understand. Still today, surgeons and scientists are pouring so much energy in order to study it and unlock all of its truths. Thus, complicated organ also implicates complicated neurosurgery, especially regarding brain tumors. Why did Pr. Ménéi take that decision? He's developed this unique method to solve a very complicated ca...
health care in france TAVI valve replacement
AORTIC VALVE REPLACEMENT: TAVR/TAVI PROCEDURE
Aortic valve replacement is a cardiac intervention performed to treat a failing aortic valve. This type of surgery is executed to replace a diseased valve. It can be degenerating because of different diseases, such as stenosis (narrowing) or regurgitation (leakage); it may be congenital (abnormal from birth) or an acquired disease (diseased with age).

Hip replacement surgery in an orthopedic clinic in France
Hip replacement surgery as an alternative to hip resurfacing: rehabilitation, orthopedic surgery in France
Hip replacement surgery is one of the most common orthopedic surgeries. There are various reasons as to why this surgery is so necessary for seniors and people with a sports background. Despite the fact that such intervention is very frequent, it is still risky and should be performed only by highly qualified orthopedic surgeons. Fortunately, thanks to the constant technology improvement, hip replacement surgery became much more delicate and efficient. When is hip replacement surgery needed? The main reason why this surgery is needed, especially in the case of elderly people, is the aging of the hip joint cartilage, such as hip joint arthritis or arthrosis. These conditions often show themselves in pain in the joints, which is a direct consequence of the joint cartilage wearing out. Generally, arthritis is caused by mechanic wearing out (if joint serves some intensive repetitive actions), genetic predisposition to risk factors, or because of inflammation, and may also occur due to...

Treatment of erectile dysfunction (impotence) in France
French urologists avoid saying the word "impotence" at any cost, they prefer calling this condition "erectile dysfunction" or "erectile disorder", which suggests the inability to obtain and maintain an erection sufficiently rigid for satisfactory sexual activity. Read this article to learn everything about treatment of erectile dysfunction in France. Erectile dysfunction: what does it mean? Before you think that something happened to your (your partner's) sexual capacity, wait to see if the inability repeats constantly for at least three months. Temporary problems in men are quite common and they are nothing to worry about. The mechanism of erection does not depend on the man's will. To get an erection, a man must bu subjected to sexual stimulation (genital caresses, fantasies, etc.). The erection also depends on the proper functioning of the nervous system (which conveys the excitement signals), circulatory system (which carries blood to the penis) and the penis itself. Therefore...

Total ankle replacement in the outpatient setting now available in France
For the first time in the world, a total ankle replacement in the outpatient setting has been performed in Lyon (France). On Friday, September 19, 2016, a team of specialists of our partner clinic in Lyon performed a total ankle replacement in the outpatient setting for the first time in the world. The patient entered the operating room at 10:00 and left it at 11:15. He returned home the same evening. The patient visited medical specialists the next day (on Saturday in the early afternoon) and on Monday. The postoperative period was quick and the patient was very satisfied with it. Why is a total ankle replacement needed? For a very long time, the orthopedists from the whole world were trying to find a cure for degenerative rheumatic or ankle injuries. Before the total ankle replacement was developed, such treatment as arthrodesis was the most popular one. However, with the development of numerous types of the prosthesis which provided better results, the orthopedists star...

Clinical trials in France: a comprehensive guide and how to get in.
An essential part of every medical research is clinical trials - the tests of a health product for humans. They represent a chance for patients to have early access to innovative treatment, as well as an indispensable opportunity for the health professionals to get an expert knowledge of this treatment and improve the quality of care. The purpose of each clinical trial is to clearly identify the advantages and disadvantages of a new treatment for it to take a justified place in the therapeutic arsenal. Clinical trials are essential to the health authorities to control and regulate the use of new treatments. Any clinical trial provides essential elements of understanding on the operating mode of the therapeutic molecule but also on the disease and response to treatment.

Medical Responsibility in France
Our patients often ask us about the responsibility of health professionals and health institutions in France. Some people even ask to sign a contract with a clinic. However, medical responsibility in France is a verbal commitment which is proved by a simple payment receipt. The responsibility of all medical staff and medical facilities is set in the French law. INTRODUCTION   In XIX century, the doctors' medical responsibility in France already provided for compensation of damage. It was based on the provisions of Articles 1382 and 1383 of the Civil Code and demanded proof of fault, damage and relation of guilt to the damage and guilt itself. Only in 1936 in the Mercier decision the Court of Cassation introduced the principle according to which “a contract is drawn up between the doctor and his/her client, containing the practitioner’s obligation if not to completely cure the patient, then at least give him/her an attentive and conscientious care, which, taking in...

MITYA FOMIN ABOUT HIS MEDICAL CHECK-UP IN FRANCE
"The day of check-up in France, the reason why I and my mother Tamara went on a French vacation to the city of Le Mans, was the most memorable one of the entire trip, and full of good news. On the D-day I had to forget about my morning jogging routine and traditional light breakfast after it, as I had to arrive at the clinic on an empty stomach. The clinic is a huge complex in the southern Le Mans, and is especially famous for its success in robot-assisted surgery. Deputy director Carolina greeted us in the reception area and guided us to the outpatient department. There, people who undergo the checkup can pass all the medical examinations in one day and receive a medical conclusion in the evening. The stay in hospital and meals are fully included in the check-up cost. Thanks to helpful girls from Medifrance Solution, we easily overcame the language barrier and were able to discuss our well-being with the French experts. We were led to separate cozy rooms equipped with everythi...

Plastic surgery: How I opted for an affordable price AND the best quality
An anonymous review of a plastic surgery in France experience. "Like 32 millions of my fellow American women, I have been thinking about getting plastic surgery since I realized that my breasts had stopped growing when I was about 21 years old. It wasn’t like it was an issue that dominated my life but I just have always had that perfectionist side in me that was never quite satisfied with what I had. I like experimenting with the way I look and since plastic surgery has become quite a safe and scar-free procedure, I decided to give it a try. As a successful woman with a stable income, cost wasn’t an issue. Our health isn't something we should have to bargain for and I didn't want to take any risks. After researching the market for some time, I noticed that prices began to go up for no objective reason. Obviously, if it was a non-invasive procedure like botox injections, it wouldn't be worth the hustle. But what I wanted was a breast augmentation. Not willing to pay more,...

Significant medical achievements of the French scientists
In our modern life, we are so used to the comfort of life - electricity, the Internet, medicaments for any disease, that we take it for granted. However, all the medical achievements come from the hard work of many determined scientists. And let's not underestimate the role of the French medical scientists. René Laennec - the father of pathological anatomy. The first stethoscope (a medical device used for body examination), was invented by René Laennec. But he is mostly known for his medical achievements in the pathological anatomy. To study the symptoms of lung diseases, Laennec needed methods for their diagnosis that didn't exist at the time, which is why he created the stethoscope. The scientist was first to use the cardiac auscultation. He also studied and published descriptions of micronodular cirrhosis of the liver, later known as Laennec cirrhosis. He described the characteristics of tuberculosis long before its causative agent was detected. Medical achievements in ped...
