Why is treatment in Germany so effective?

 

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

  1. Training of doctors. German Doctors receive an excellent education. The best specialists from all over the world come here for practicing in reputable clinics. Therefore, doctors' qualification is 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. This gives 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 which are not implemented in the clinical practice of other countries yet. Own therapeutic techniques are developed here. Medical achievements of 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 special 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, the patient’s recovery period is accelerated.
  • Radiosurgery. Nowadays, tumors, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations are removed without a scalpel. Malformations in lungs and brain could be removed with the help of radiosurgical techniques. This 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 which 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, which 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 a full-fledged cartilage of a necessary shape and implant it inside the knee joint. As a result, the cartilage surface defect is compensated.
