Why is a bone marrow transplant necessary?
The aim of the difficult operation is in replacing important stem cells from the healthy donor to the patient. In such a way today, doctors 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 which is in our clinics or his services will be much more expensive, than arrival to France. In a modern clinic, a bone marrow transplant provides a minimum of contraindications; safety and low-toxicity for the patient. At the same time, operation allows replacing the damaged system with a healthy one. Moreover, professionals manage to enlarge the amount of cytotoxic, which stimulate destruction of tumor cells. The reconstructed system allows achieving stabilization of a patient’s condition, completely curing him. Important processes and immunity are restored. He...

Medical college: its functions and duty
The association of doctors is an administrative, legal and professional body, which is engaged in adjustment and is responsible for the protection of the fundamental values of a medical profession: ethics and deontology. This association consists of the following organizations: 10 regional councils, Appeal council, National council. The association of doctors has the status of the public legal entity. From the legal point of view, it is not an association or a private organization to which the doctor has the right to join freely. Instead, the doctor has to be registered in the base of the regional council (in particular in the territory where the specialist provides the main medical services). This obligatory registration concerns all doctors: the doctors of the foreign states, and the doctors of the European Union. Military doctors are obliged to be registered if they practice medicine outside military purposes. As for the public law civil status, the association of docto...

Crib on how to choose the correct plastic surgeon
Do you know how to choose a plastic surgeon? Current trends in the field of plastic surgery build a negative attitude to plasticity. It is not your everyday person who is ready to explicitly recognize, that he has done 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 the pleasure for the rich, who already pretend they have money to burn. However, who are the people who actively criticize plastic surgery? Moreover, what pushes people to the negative attitude to plasticity? You'd be surprised when you know the real reasons for such behavior.   Banal envy?   At first glance, the answer is obvious – these people just envy.

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 facilitators and do not even think of it. There are a lot of providers in our life: 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 facilitators, without them it is difficult to present medical tourism. Their goal is to simplify treatment and patient’s stay in another country. The provider knows the market and prices, which clinic is cheaper and in which this or that operation is better performed. Conscientious and not greedy clinics work tightly with facilitators, therefore, the treatment price for the patient often remains the same. Anyway, the percent of facilitators is very small taking into account the guarantee and help that they render. It is desirable to ask for ...

Trump's healthcare plan: what options do you have?
As many Americans, you probably agree with Donald Trump who wants to repeal Obamacare. But until Trump's healthcare plan is enrolled, how do you receive quality medical care? As the new president-elect Donald Trump said numerous times, he plans to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) also known as Obamacare. Even if the complete repeal seems to be impossible, it will be completely in his power to bend the law according to his plans or to defund the program. However, he hasn't yet presented a complete healthcare project (so-called "Trump's healthcare plan") that would replace Obamacare nor he hasn’t explained how would the transmission happen for those 22 million Americans who gained insurance since the Affordable Care Act enrollment. Even if it seems like a progress that millions of people have insurance now, a recent survey by Gallup showed that 51% of Americans do not approve of Obamacare. Furthermore, the premiums are expected to rise by more than 20% in 2017 according to a gov...

How about going to France... for treatment?
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word “France”? Of course, most of us would answer: beautiful girls, wine and romantic walk on the Rue de la Paix in a languid July evening.

Just think about it, a couple of decades ago the healthcare in France embarked on a new revolutionary course of development. Careful attention of the government to the health sector has allowed French doctors to take a leading place in the world in the field of plastic surgery, treatment and diagnostics of cancer, infertility prevention, as well as in many other areas of modern medicine.

It was not later than 1981 that The French National Medical Council qualified plastic surgery as an independent discipline that fascinates the world from that moment till now. Let'...

Medical story with a happy ending
A real story from one of our patients. «I am a sixty two year old doctor who retired to France this year and as part of my ‘Carte de Longue Sejour’(long term visa) I had to undergo a brief medical examination including a CXR. To my horror, a new 1.5 centimeter nodule was found which given my age, location, smoking history, was overwhelmingly likely to be cancer. I was extremely scared and as you can imagine felt even worse because I was in a country whose medical system I did not understand and had never had any contact with. I spoke first with some French pals and they steered me to a local doctor and he subsequently sent me to a pulmonologist(lung doctor) for evaluation. While both doctors were very kind and professional, it was clear to me that the tests were going to take weeks if not months to get, and I was clearly in a race against time. I needed things to move faster. I began searching the internet for services to expedite care in France and came across MediFran...
