Heart disease is scary, especially knowing that it is the number one killer of people in the world. If you find out that you need to have a coronary artery bypass graft, you may feel overwhelmed and worried that you will become one more statistic.
Added to this is the stress and worry about the cost of the procedure. In the United States many people do have health insurance coverage, but often there is a copay or you have to have met your deductible first. This means, that even with coverage, your costs can quickly climb out of control.
Read on to learn about what to expect when you have a coronary artery bypass graft and how we can assist you to find good and affordable care in Turkey.
About Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)
Blocked heart arteries can easily and quickly result in a heart attack, which if it does not kill you, will likely cause irreversible heart damage.
The procedure is done under general anesthesia and entails the surgeon cutting your chest open and placing you on a bypass machine while the procedure is carried out. The surgeon selects part of a healthy blood vessel either from inside your chest or your leg and grafts this in place to bypass the blockage in the coronary artery.
A CABG is a fairly routine procedure today with thousands having the operation done every day around the world. The procedure is a major surgery but most people recover well if done in an accredited facility by qualified professionals.
Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) in Turkey
Turkey is a great place for medical tourists and regular tourists. Medical procedures are often at much lower price here than in countries such as the United States.
Since angioplasty is a minor procedure that is minimally invasive, you could combine your trip with a holiday, and spend some time relaxing on the beach or visiting some cultural sites.
The country has a well-regulated medical industry with several highly-esteemed, talented and accredited doctors in the health industry.
Most health coverage plans in the United States also have a copay and a limit to the amount they will pay for a given procedure and there is often a lifetime limit, which is a problem if you suddenly need to have an angioplasty and have no coverage left.
