If you need to have a microdiscectomy procedure then you may be feeling worried, and not only about the surgery but also about the high cost.
Turkey is a good alternative choice for a place to have this procedure done, because the country has internationally-recognized doctors, surgeons, and facilities and offers surgery and other procedures that are very affordable.
Read on to find out more about microdiscectomy and how you can have this done in Turkey at a much more reasonable price without any sacrifice in quality.
Microdiscectomy is a surgery done under general anesthesia, but it is only minimally invasive. The surgery is performed to alleviate pain caused by a herniated disc pressing down on nerves in the back. The discs are pieces of cartilage found between the vertebrate of your backbone, which helps provide a cushion to your bones and allow your back to bend without pain.
An incision up to about 1.5 inches in size is made in the back and the surgeon then carefully removes the piece of bone and tissue that is pushing on the nerves that are causing the discomfort.
After removing the tissue causing the problem, the surgeon then closes up the incision and you are sent to recover. A person usually recovers quickly from the procedure and complications are rare.
Microdiscectomy in Turkey
Turkey is a great destination for medical tourists and there are many reputable health care centers present. The country has a reputation for excellent medical care, and has many experienced and highly qualified doctors and surgeons.
Microdiscectomy is a not a major surgical procedure. The risks are low, particularly since the country has a good reputation in the international community for providing high quality health care with minimal risk.
The other advantage of having medical work done in Turkey is that the costs are actually very low in comparison to many other countries, even when people have health insurance in their home country.
The other issue is that with health insurance, patients often have to wait several months to have a procedure done, especially a minor surgery like microdiscectomy. This means that you may have to suffer and be in pain for a long time while you wait on your insurance company to allow you to have the procedure done at the medical facility and providers that they contract with.
