Avatar n tn My mom is going to have bilateral knee replacement surgery in India. From the conversation with my parents, what I figured, the doctor is going to use oxinium Knee replacement implant (which is from Smith and nephew). From another source, I was suggested to use Johnson and Johnson knee implant. Which one is best and what should I know before going for knee replacement implant? What could be the implant cost per knee implant (for one leg)? Any pros and cons?
Avatar f tn It is good to go in for a corrective surgery as uneven pressure onto the outer and inner part of knee-joints it has been proved to lead to early developed arthritis, as well as to knee pain and progressing deformation. Legs deformation and pain are the reasons why a great number of elderly people cannot walk normally and in most cases, after arthritis is developed, need to undergo knee replacement.
Avatar n tn Hi. You don't say which country you live in, which will make a difference. In the UK where I live we have the National Health Service. We all pay towards this service through taxes so that seeing a doctor is "free" at point of contact. The doctor can then refer a patient to a specialist like a dermatologist at no extra cost, but waiting times can be very long.
Avatar m tn Best of luck with it; I can testify first-hand that it IS possible to have knee surgery and come out of it with a better joint than you had to start with, but you need to find the right person to look after you.
Avatar f tn Can't help you any.
Avatar f tn There was a lot of arguments between the UK government and Caridiologists over the cost of the stent, the government saying it is not cost effective. Cardiologists argued that surgery after care with usual treatments costs far more when combined with the surgery itself, making the stent much cheaper. Was this technique never used? It was on the news in the UK but I didn't hear anymore about it.

Avatar n tn I was recently evaluated by a dentist for possible veneer, mainly for cosmetic reasons. However, given the condition of my teeth, he recommended crowns instead of veneers. He also recommended crown lengthening because my teeth are small and "too short". It would cost me $600 for whitening (ZOOM), $4500 for crown lengthening-6 teeth and about $2500 per crown (including provisional crown, post and porcelein crown). I have several questions: 1) Is this overpriced?.
1218873 tn?1300091216 Over here in the UK, we generally don't know what the cost of tests and drugs are, as they are covered by the NHS. But over the past 12 months I have started to learn a bit of what thing cost, and it appears that even if you go private they are considerabley cheaper than in the US which to me dosen't seem quite right.
Avatar f tn Vision now with the Finevision is way over 95% perfect in all conditions, 100% in most areas of my daily life. I have not regretted spending a penny if it. Even if you cost in a flight, you could have the op and fly back same day.
Avatar f tn I have moderate knee pain most of the time, especially when I sit. The knee is swollen and looks as if it has a lot of fluid in it. My orthopedic surgeon has said that I will definetly have to have a total knee replacement but the time to do it is up to me. I am 67 years old and don't know if it would be better to do it before I get older. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Avatar f tn Dr Zenn at Duke told me the first step of Diep will cost sixty thousand.. with tmy insurance paying eighty percent of what they think he should have charged. I have Mega Life and they do not pay well. They only pay a maximum of two thousand for ambulatory procedures. Would breast reductioin and lift by ambulatory? Would tissue expander placement be ambulatory. How much would that cost... a range? How much for the implant placement. Is it ambulatory as well?
Avatar f tn I have no medical insurance and I have an agressive cataract in my right eye that has made me legally blind in that eye. Does anyone know what the range of actual cost of cataract surgery sans insurance payments is. It would be mono focal and only the one eye. Any information would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I have a question...I fell from a couple of a stairs and tore my lateral meniscus. The orthopedic told me that I have to get surgery because that portion of the tear is not healed. Also he mentioned that the cartilage in my knee is calcifying. So I want to know is the calclifying of my cartilage in my knee a long term risk for my knee?..And if I don't want to do surgery to take out the torn pieces..is it possible that my knee can still heal on its own?
