The patient was treated of ventricular septal defect
star star star star star

The problem was with the translation, they weren’t completely translating, they weren’t there, they had to catch translators even receiving doctors after 11:00 in the morning, until eleven Only in the clinic I had to wait after an hour, I had to be examined after lunch, and after lunch the doctors left for surgery or a detour for three days I couldn’t get to the ENT doctor; the tests are long, the tests take a long time, in general, we had two weeks to go through the examination of the gastroenterologist, and the ENT wanted to go back to us tomorrow to undergo the examination again, but alas l hope my heart will not fail but summed over the 40 years. The doctor said to her daughter the first day after the examination that there is no need for surgery, a very small defect from the operation will be more harm, it is better not to touch it until 10-12 years old. The girl herself is healthy in all respects, only this defect of the interventricular septum is there we will observe if we get worse. Thanks good luck everyone. Проблема была с переводом не полностью переводят рядом не находятся приходилось ловить переводчиков ещё приём врачей после 11:00 утра, до одиннадцати Тольку нет в клинике приходится ждать после часа должен успеть пройти обследование после начинается обед и после обеда врачи уходят на операции или обход три дня не мог попасть к ЛОР врачу большие очереди анализы делают долго, вообщем у нас было две недели за это время успел пройти обследование гастроэнтеролога, и ЛОР завтра нам обратно лететь хотел ещё пройти обследование сердце но увы не успел надеюсь сердце мое не подведёт как не подвело за 40-лет. Дочке первый день после обследование врач сказал что нет необходимости операции очень маленький дефект от операции будет больше вреда, лучше не трогать наблюдать до 10-12 лет. Девочка сама здорова по всем параметрам только вот этот дефект межжелудочковый перегородки есть будем наблюдать если будет ухудшение приедем. Спасибо удачи всем.

The equipment is good, modern. Doctors and attendants are attentive and highly qualified. I passed a survey course and a number of specialist consultations. At the time when I was there, I was advised not to rush into the operation, as the state of health is at the stage of improvement. If they were interested in pumping money from me, then they would recommend urgently to do it, which indicates their objectivity. The only problem with finding there was an unusual food for me. But this is someone who, like someone who loves spicy, peppery and a lot of seasonings. Оборудование хорошое, современное. Врачи и обслуживающий персонал внимательны и высококвалифицированые. Прошёл курс обследования и ряд консультаций специалистов. На тот момент когда я там находился мне посоветовали не спешить с операцией, так как состояние здоровья на стадии улучшения. Если бы они были бы заинтересованы в выкачивании денег у меня, то рекомендовали бы срочно ее делать, что говорит об их объективности. Единственной проблемой нахождения там было непривычное для меня питание. Но это уже кому как, кто то любит острое, перченое и множество приправ.

The patient was treated of bladder cancer
star star star star star_border

The clinic, in the category "like - do not like", I can not evaluate. Meeting at the airport with an interpreter and transfer to the clinic - standard. Accommodation in the guest house, before the operation, leaves much to be desired. But, who is familiar with India, I do not think for special comfort and does not count, otherwise - to Germany. Immediately the next morning, without delay and delay, a primary appointment with doctors and diagnosis. Prices for a visit from doctors, examinations and tests are very reasonable, commensurate with Moscow or, even lower. Communication with doctors through an interpreter is somewhat difficult, but quite informative and understandable. Knowledge of English will remove all embarrassment, but in general - not critical. The attitude of doctors to the examination and refinement of the diagnosis is "meticulous". After five days - a summary and proposal for a treatment program. Hospitalization, surgery, 3 days in the intensive care unit and postoperative placement in a two-bed room (together with an attendant) for 12 days. And an extract. The level of training, skill and attitude of doctors, from my "ambitious" point of view of the accompanying person, is beyond praise !!! About the surgeon who performed the operation - DR. MURUGANANDHAM K, I want to say that he has "golden hands and heart" !!! The attitude of the average medical personnel, despite the language difficulties, is very friendly. In the intensive care unit was invited immediately after the operation and "woke up" the patient with me. Opening his eyes and seeing his native face after anesthesia - a person "comes alive"! Postoperative treatment and care in the ward are very worthy. Having repeated his own experience in hospitalization, I can not even compare. The account is not in our favor. In fact, treatment in the clinic saved life! This is especially evident now, a year after the treatment. A year ago, options were considered: Germany, Israel and India. In terms of price-quality ratio and recall of acquaintances have chosen treatment in India. And they were not mistaken. The clinic was selected by specialists of the site en.bookimed.com. They also provided a correlation and communication with the clinic. Huge thanks to them !!! Клинику, в категории «нравится - не нравится», оценивать не берусь.! Встреча в аэропорту с переводчиком и трансфер в клинику - стандартный. Размещение в гостевом доме, перед операцией, оставляет желать лучшего. Но, кто знаком с Индией, на особый комфорт думаю и не расчитывает, иначе - в Германию. Сразу же на следующее утро, без проволочек и волокиты первичный приём у врачей и диагностика. Цены за приём у врачей, обследования и анализы очень разумные, соразмерны с московскими или, даже ниже. Общение с докторами через переводчика, несколько затруднено, но вполне информативно и понятно. Знание английского снимет все неловкости, но в целом - не критично. Отношение врачей к обследованию и уточнению диагноза «дотошное». Через пять дней - резюме и предложение программы лечения. Госпитализация, операция, 3 дня в реанимационном отделении и послеоперационное размещение в двух-местной палате (вместе с сопровождающим) в течение 12 дней. И выписка. Уровень подготовки, мастерство и отношение врачей, с моей «делетантской» точки зрения сопровождающего, выше всяких похвал!!! О хирурге проводившем операцию - DR. MURUGANANDHAM K, хочется сказать, что у него «золотые руки и сердце»!!! Отношение среднего медицинского персонала, несмотря на языковые трудности, очень доброжелательное. В реанимацию пригласили сразу же после операции и «будили» больного при мне. Открыв глаза и увидев родное лицо после наркоза - человек «оживает»! Послеоперационное лечение и уход в палате очень достойные. Имея неоднократный собственный опыт госпитализации, не берусь даже сравнивать. Счёт не в нашу пользу. Фактически, лечение в клинике спасло жизнь!!! Это особенно видно сейчас, спустя год после лечения. Год назад рассматривались варианты: Германия, Израиль и Индия. По соотношению цена-качество и отзыву знакомых выбрали лечение в Индии. И не ошиблись. Клинику подобрали специалисты сайта ru.bookimed.com. Они же обеспечили соотношение и связь с клиникой. Огромное им спасибо!!!

Выбрав страну Индия и лечебное учреждение Global Hospital мы получили консультацию и сделали диагностику , благодаря которой нам врач - онколог подобрал инновационный препарат , который дал нам надежду на выздоровления .

Поверьте чудеса случаются, не упускайте свой шанс, обращайтесь в Bookimed и они сделают всё возможное , что бы Вы были здоровы. Р.S.Мы очень благодарим Алёну, за то, что она нам помогала во всем, начиная с загрузки документов на сайт и оканчивая покупкой билетов на самолёт.

My grandmother was admitted in the Max hospital Patparganj for a simple hip surgery. Post surgery she contracted some hospital borne infections and was down with fever. Within no time a simple surgery became a nightmare for the entire family. The doctors kept forcing us to put her on ventilator and were telling us that she is having multiple organ failure. They went to extent of saying that if we don't put her on ventilator we will not be able to save her. She was kept in the… ICU for several days and her condition was only deteriorating. Then finally we took the decision of shifting her to Sir Ganga Ram hospital. The doctors were against us taking her anywhere. Thanks to our strong family we shifted her and she is back home within 1 week. Max group is a money hungry group with sole intention of not curing the patient and not even letting them die. They want to make their patients into vegetables and cash cows whose family members just keep paying the bills. It is my sincere request with everyone to never take their friends and family members to Max for their own well being.

Disclaimer: This review is written by Orthopedic surgeon who owns a hospital...... My mother was admitted here for one day with fever and cough. my friend works there as a pulmonolgist and I wanted my mother to be under his care.. Doctor treatment was excellent. front office and admission procedure were smooth without any hiccups and well organised process except for a longer TAT( turn around time).. the room was not cleaned… properly.. A C was not working, request for a curtain as direct sunlight was falling in the bed was attended partially after 4-5 hours.. the furniture was in dilapidated condition. I requested the nursing staff for tepid sponging 3 times and still they didn't do it.. coming to the billing part.. a simple chem 20 test which costs around 2K was charged 8000. 24 hours admission and only investigation cost was 34000/which will cost 1/3 in best center or any other corporate hospital..I do understand that charges will be little higher in a corporate hospital for the services they provide but charging 4-5 times higher is unethical.. DO NOT EVER GET ADMITTED IN CONTINENTAL HOSPITAL UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET LOOTED IN BROAD DAYLIGHT....

I had an excellent experience at Wockhardt Hospital. I arrived here with severe pain in my lower back and both my legs and was unable to walk, nor sit nor stand for past 2 years, which was result of a surgery done overseas. At Wockhardt, the correct diagnosis was made by the team of doctors (Dr. Mazda Turel, Dr. Bhushan, Dr. Preeti Doshi, Dr. Prashant Makhija, Dr. Mallik Merchant, and others). They were brilliant, compassionate, kind and caring. I love all the doctors. They were very supportive, honest in their opinions and did a great job on me. All tests were done efficiently and quickly. Treatment followed with immediate effect. The nursing staff, catering staff, dietitian, the house keeping department and the patient co-ordination team were all polite, caring and co-operative. I have no complaints whatsoever. I am leaving with a smile on my face and will miss everyone who was assigned to me including Megha and Heena. Will not hesitate to recommend Wockhardt to everyone who needs all kinds of treatment as they have all specialities.

The worst hospital ever, the doctors never come on time, dr. Manjari bhusari treats patients like flith and speaks very rudly. The management is not all supportive, when you ask them about the doctor being late, they turn abusive and violent. They resort to hitting patients and abusing them. Never seen such kind of behaviour in hospital, they purposely turn off the cctv cameras so that these kinds of incidents are never reported. The good reviews are posted by management itself disguised as patients.

Thanks to our strong family we shifted her and she is back home within 1 week. Max group is a money hungry group with sole intention of not curing the patient and not even letting them die. They want to make their patients into vegetables and cash cows whose family members just keep paying the bills. It is my sincere request with everyone to never take their friends and family members to Max for their own well being.

Facing pathetic experience today. This is our first visit here for my uncle's small operation. Initially doctor given estimated time of 3 hours (1 hour for operation and 2 hours for post operation observations and clearance process). We came here at around 8 am today (as recommended by doctor). Operation is completed by 9:45, still now clearance processes are not completed. Just wanted to mention here, we have already paid the full amount in advance, no insurance processes are there. Moreover, no one is here who can give an approximate time to release the patient. And finally their behaviour, it's like wow, I mean even labours behave gently than these people. I am not sure when will return back home today. Will update remaining exp later. Only suggestion to everyone, please keep twice time free as the initial estimated time.

Worst unprofessional and pathetic behavior you can expect from a hospital. We had visited with patient of very high fever and moved her to emergency. It took 4 hours to get the preliminary response, the reports were expected to deliver within 4 hours, which after full payment turned to the next day. When we visited next day, the response was THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH STUFFS TODAY so cannot give report . We were forced to buy medicines that were not even listed in the recommendation list of doctor. The one more interesting thing, you will find more quiet atmosphere in market than the Emergency ward of this hospital. I had a very good impression and response of this hospital chain in Kolkata, which completely ruined after this. Be at your own risk.

We are trying from morning to get the test report but the Customer Care people are transferring the call to dispatch team and they are not pick the call. We are calling your customer care more than eight time. Tomorrow we are having a doctor appointment without this report it’s of no use. We never expected this kind of poor response from Narayana health care .

I have been to this hospital few times, charges are high however service is not at all impressive. I think u can't come out fully satisfied from this hospital, it's highly likely you will face one issue or another .. let it be related to dealing with front desk people , medicine shop , waiting time, cafeteria... I don't find staff helpful either .. making money is the only priority !

I've attended Columbia Asia for annual health checkup. It was a pleasurable experience overall, with receptionist Ram being very polite and guiding me well throughout the tests. The lab technicians/doctors who conducted my health checkup were also very amicable. I'd keep visiting this hospital for health checkup in the future.

An amazing group of doctors that is available through the day to give a good coverage to all your medical needs. A facility for conducting all tests in house that saves you from the hassle of going elsewhere and wait for the reports. The reports are a available online doctor can see them on screen instantly. The team of doctors is well calibrated. Some of them are visiting doctor in max as well. Some negatives though they recently seem to have cut on staff which is visible in a lack of promptly replying on phone as well as at the time consumed at bill desks.A good alternative is their app they have recently launched. Overall a good experience.

Kudos for setting up a camp to offer free tests of basic needs at the PUSA Krishi Vigyan Mela 2020. I am hopeful a lot of visitors and residents of PUSA would have taken the benefit. It would have been specially meaningful because most of the visitors were farmers from remote areas in different states.

They are just stolen your money with your open eyes. No matter you done all the tests but still they ask you for all the required test again in the first visit. I Just want to say they're can be cure any problems but they don't wants to do this because of visit charge. Which was very High like 1000 to 1500 per visit... They are here for profit only not for curing people

Fortis is not dealing with patients honestly. In cash less arrangement they are charging extra amount. They show lesser amount which get sanctioned.... It is almost two hours, when I caught this, but still they have not responded. Tried to get escalation point, but it is not there.... Almost 24 hr passed, no revert from any one of fortis... It seems every such fraudulent transactions is being done under guideline of management.....

Questions and answers

What is a gastric balloon?

The gastric or intragastric balloon is a short-term medical device aimed to help patients lose excess weight without surgical intervention. It is temporary, but enough effective method to get rid of obesity along with diet and physical activity.

How does gastric balloon in India work?

A soft silicone balloon is inserted into the stomach with the help of an endoscope (tubular instrument passed through the mouth and throat). In the stomach, the balloon is filled with saline occupying the bigger part of the intragastric space. This gives the impression of satiety because the stomach is partially full. As a result, the individual eats less food in one sitting and begins to lose weight.

The balloon is situated in the stomach for 6 months, after which it is removed. It can be inserted for a second time after a break of 2 months. To achieve the maximum effect of this bariatric procedure, the patient needs to keep a diet.

The balloon insertion in India takes an hour. The procedure requires hospitalization — the patient stays in a hospital for a day and then comes back home. 

Who benefits the gastric balloon procedure?

This method is not suitable for people with a very high body mass index (BMI). The recommended BMI for an intragastric balloon procedure starts from 30.

An intragastric balloon can also be used as a preparation for bariatric surgery to reduce the risk of complications. Some weight loss surgeries increase the risk of complications if the patient has severe obesity. In this case, the balloon can reduce excess weight to acceptable standards that allow doctors to perform bariatric surgery with less risk.

The balloon bariatric procedure is especially suitable for people who want to avoid surgery.

What are the main advantages of the gastric balloon method in India?

  • installed through an endoscope without intervention
  • temporary option (6 months)
  • can be reused
  • can be used as preparation for bariatric surgery
  • low risk of complications
  • does not affect the digestive system
  • weight loss is slower than after bariatric surgery.

What are the contraindications for the procedure?

  • inflammatory bowel disease 
  • esophagitis
  • gastric and duodenal ulcers
  • stomach tumors
  • lower gastrointestinal bleeding
  • congenital pyloric stenosis, atresia, and stenosis of the small intestine
  • large hiatal hernia (esophageal opening of the diaphragm)
  • mental disorders
  • alcohol and drug addiction
  • constant intake of aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, drugs that irritate the stomach, anticoagulants (medications that reduce blood clotting)
  • pregnancy or breastfeeding.

 

Learn more about the contraindications here.

How long is the rehabilitation period after intragastric balloon insertion?

The recovery time takes 3 days. After this period, the patient can return to work. Immediately after the gastric balloon procedure, the patient will need to limit food intake. During the first few days, the diet should consist only of liquid food. In 2 weeks after the procedure, the person can begin to try semi-solid, and then solid food.

The intragastric balloon implies that the patient will change the lifestyle and eating habits to healthier ones. The balloon makes it much easier because it consumes a lot of space in the stomach and reduces the amount of food intake.

The procedure for intragastric balloon installing also involves checks by a surgeon to avoid all sorts of complications.

In 6 months, the balloon will be removed from the stomach in the same way as it was installed. If the patient wants the process to be repeated to achieve a better result, then the balloon can be inserted again after a short break of 2 months.

What are the risks of the gastric balloon?

The intragastric balloon procedure causes fewer complications in contrast with other weight loss surgery methods. The most common among them are:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • abdominal pain.

What results can you expect after the procedure?

The gastric juice destroys the balloon gradually, so the balloon can be put into the stomach for 6 months, and then it must be taken out. If a patient wants to continue balloon treatment, the procedure will be performed again but only in 2 months.

The procedure's effectiveness depends on the eating habits and the patient’s diet. The gastric balloon in India shows high efficiency in people with not very high BMI, in particular:

  • lose about 20-50 pounds of excess weight
  • decrease body weight by 20%
  • decrease body mass index by 5%.

How much does a gastric balloon cost in India?

Usually, the stomach balloon surgery cost includes consultation with a doctor and the procedure itself. In some clinics balloon packages and programs are available.

The balloon weight loss surgery cost varies depending on:

  • country

Each country offers different prices for the procedure. It depends on state economic development level and average price policy. Asian nations offer 3-4 times lower bariatric balloon cost in comparison with European ones.

  • city

The price for gastric balloon differs from city to city within a particular country. Larger and more economically developed megapolises offer 2 times higher balloon weight loss surgery cost than the smaller cities. However, the quality of the procedure is on the same level.

  • private or state hospital

Clinics are divided into private and state ones. The bariatric balloon cost in state hospitals can be 2 times lower than in private clinics. But the management quality in state centers is also lower. It depends on the country where a hospital is located. Specify the information on at the clinic contact center and read gastric balloon surgery reviews when choosing a hospital.

  • doctor’s qualification

The best bariatric doctors undergo international training and have vast experience. The balloon weight loss surgery cost is higher when a specialist with an excellent reputation performs the procedure.
