Why is treatment in Germany so effective?

 

There are several reasons why doctors in German clinics achieve better results compared to medical institutions in other countries:

  1. Training of doctors. German Doctors receive an excellent education. The best specialists from all over the world come here to practice in reputable clinics. Therefore, doctors' qualifications are much higher than in most other countries.
  2. The technical equipment in clinics. Each large hospital has expensive medical equipment. Most institutions in other countries can only envy. It gives the possibility to perform accurate diagnostics and plan successful treatment. Ultramodern operations are also carried out with its help.
  3. The latest treatment methods. Doctors in Germany successfully apply treatment techniques that are not implemented in the clinical practice of other countries yet. Our therapeutic techniques are developed here. Medical achievements from other countries are also timely implemented in German hospitals.

The latest treatment methods

 

Many diseases require high-tech medical care. The following techniques are used in Germany:

  • Robot-assisted operations. Surgical interventions are performed by a robot surgeon. A doctor guides it with a remote controller. Such operations are less traumatic because the human factor is excluded. The “hand” of a robot will never falter. Cuts are perfectly straight and thin. The volume of blood loss is decreased. The rehabilitation period is improved; the risk of complications is reduced, and the patient’s recovery period is accelerated.
  • Radiosurgery. Nowadays, tumors, aneurysms, and arteriovenous malformations are removed without a scalpel. Malformations in the lungs and brain could be removed with the help of radiosurgical techniques. It is a painless and quick procedure. A person can drive a car and go to work the next day after the radiosurgical removal of the brain tumor.
  • Radionuclide medicine. Clinical trials with radioisotopes that are accumulated in particular tissues are carried out in Germany. This is especially important for identifying and destroying tumor metastases. During the examination, metastases accumulate special substances that emit radiation and destroy cancer cells.
  • Cardiac surgery. Complex heart surgeries are performed in German clinics. Moreover, they are often performed even without opening the chest. Access is provided through the blood vessels of the lower limbs. The operations with thoracoscopic access are also performed in the same way. Such interventions are less traumatic and do not require long-term rehabilitation.
  • Matrix-induced chondrogenesis. Damaged cartilages of the joints cannot be restored. But everything changes if German doctors take up the case. They take the patient's cartilage cells, grow full-fledged cartilage of the necessary shape, and implant it inside the knee joint. As a result, cartilage surface defects are compensated.

Which diseases is it better to treat in Germany?

 

These are diseases that require either brand medications, innovative equipment, skilled healthcare professionals, unique German therapeutic techniques, or a comprehensive approach. Some people have other reasons and choose Germany for the high level of patient comfort and confidentiality of personal data.

Most often, German hospitals and rehabilitation centers admit patients with such conditions:

  • Benign and malignant brain tumors
  • Prostate cancer (especially the metastatic one)
  • Benign prostatic conditions that require sparing therapy
  • Lung cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer (and other abdominal malignancies that require HIPEC)
  • Stroke (both acute-phase therapy and rehabilitation)
  • Arthrosis (both conservative treatment, including stem cell therapy, and joint replacement)

Check-ups and rehabilitation programs are in demand as well. One more specific field of medicine is stem cell therapy and biological medicine. Due to the vast technical and medicinal possibilities, German healthcare professionals can choose only the best options for achieving the desired result.
