Endopyelotomy surgery in India
The most important incentive to choose endopyelotomy surgery in India is its lower cost. Endopyelotomy surgery will cost less than in your home country. Endopyelotomy is an endoscopic procedure to treat ureteropelvic junction obstruction. Obstruction of the ureteropelvic junction can be caused by congenital abnormalities like horseshoe kidney, fibrous scarring due to stone or previous operation, a blood vessel which may kink the UPJ or a stone that gets impacted in the upper part of ureter. It’s a popular procedure to relieve all these cause. India seems to offer the cheapest medical services, while other western countries are slightly more expensive. The cost of endopyelotomy surgery in India is much affordable of what similar treatment would cost you in the United States.
Endopyelotomy is an endoscopic procedure to treat ureteropelvic junction obstruction. The kidney is either approached through the Percutaneous Nephrostomy tube or through the urethra and urinary bladder. Endopyelotomy relieves the obstruction in the upper part of the ureter called the renal pelvis. Obstruction of the ureteropelvic junction can be caused by congenital abnormalities like horseshoe kidney, fibrous scarring due to stone or previous operation, a blood vessel which may kink the UPJ or a stone that gets impacted in the upper part of ureter. This can cause damage to kidney tissue and eventually lead to pain, stone formation, infection, high blood pressure, deterioration of kidney function and eventually kidney failure. Endopyelotomy is a popular procedure to relieve all these symptoms. A thorough pre-operative assessment by your urologist would comprise of physical examination, Intravenous Pyelogram, urinalysis for the presence of blood and white cells and urine culture for infection are performed. Inform your surgeon about your other health conditions and medications that you might be taking. Refrain from taking aspirin or Ibuprofen at least 2 weeks before Endopyelotomy. Stop smoking a few weeks before Endopyelotomy to prevent healing problems during recovery period. Do not eat or drink any thing for at least 10 - 12 hours before the Endopyelotomy.
India is actively developing its medical tourism, a destination for endopyelotomy surgery at a comparative cost at cities like Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Bagalore, Hyderabad. Prices are compared for some major procedures between USA, India, Thailand and Singapore. While India is at the moment becoming a destination for health treatment and there seems to be a very actively pursued policy of promoting Indian health facilities for medical tourism, an attempt will be made to describe the flaws of the hospitals and health care provision in India. Mostly people will consider medical tourism for elective procedures.
