Michele

Procedure : hysteromyomectomy

His / Her Experience : Excellent

"Last January 08, after a routine annual exam and subsequent MRI, I found out I had uterine fibroids (one had grown rapidly and appeared the size of a cantaloupe). I had frequent urination and bowel discomfort and pain. I went to see many GYN Doctors who all looked at me and told me there was very little of my uterus left and a hysterectomy was the only option. I went on the Internet and wanted medical tourism because I cannot afford the operation. Then I came to Shanghai for fertility treatment. My doctor spent an hour and a half with me in consultation and listened to what was important to me. Dr. Li removed a total of 13 fibroids. He found clusters and clusters of them and it took hundreds and hundreds of stitches to close. He patiently placed each one and surgery lasted under 3 hours. I am now fibroid free, seven weeks post-op, and doing very well. I wanted so much to be able to give some peace and comfort to those of you who are reading this and have fibroids that are giving you problems. Dr. Li has over 18 years of experience removing uterine tumors. I can't express my thanks enough for the care that I was provided."

Karl

Procedure : Cancer Treatment

His / Her Experience : Excellent

Karl from the US travelled to Shanghai for an MRI scan and a series of health examination which cost $4800 including his return flight, three night's accommodation in a three star hotel and some expense in tourism. The hospital also gave him a free ultra sound scan, worth an additional $150, as an added incentive. In the US he had been given quotes ranging from $800 to $1300. He said: "I wanted a second opinion after being seen in the US so I decided to look into having an MRI scan done privately. I searched for cheap MRI scans on the internet and found some good deals in Europe but the price of the flight would have made it very expensive. Then I found some information on internet about Shanghai Medical Tourism Product and Promotion Platform in China. After speaking to Dr Liu, the president of the hospital, and he explained about their services, I decided to fly to Shanghai for medical tourism. I was collected from the airport, taken to the hotel and collected the next morning to go to the hospital, just a five minute walk from the hotel. I arrived on the Wednesday night and had my scan first thing on the Thursday and afterwards I spent a lovely couple of days in Shanghai. I stayed in a lovely hotel with great views overlooking the Huangpu River, Jin Mao Tower and the highest building in Shanghai——Shanghai World Financial Center. The public transport was brilliant and the driver was really helpful giving us tips about what to see and advising regarding bus times etc. Shanghai is a good place for medical treatment and tourism."

Susan

Procedure :  Liposuction, Breast Lift, Botox® and Scar Revision

His / Her Experience : Excellent

"I had a much better consultation and examination with the plastic surgeon in Shanghai. Not only was the staff thoroughly professional, but they also treated me with the loving care one might expect from family. My special compliments to the therapists. He recommended I have liposuction instead of the tummy tuck. He genuinely cared, always made me feel good, answered all my questions, and I liked his office staff. " Susan says her plastic surgery reminded her of what her body could look like and gave her motivation to diet and exercise. Her liposuction removed inches and her breast lift improved her self esteem. "I had my procedures about a year ago, and I am very pleased. I knew I had to change my lifestyle habits and that plastic surgery alone wasn't enough. In the last four months I have lost 30 pounds and again exercise two to three times a week."

Catherine

Procedure : in-vitro fertilization

His / Her Experience : Excellent

Email : CatherineSH@msn.com

For Catherine and her husband, infertility came with feelings of isolation and hopelessness. She had been told by numerous fertility centers that because she was over 40, her success rate for pregnancy was slim, and she should consider adoption or other alternatives. Her pessimism turned to optimism when she came to Shanghai for medical tourism. The physician and researcher in Shanghai specializing in reproductive endocrinology and infertility developed a course of treatment for Catherine that took into consideration both her chances for a successful pregnancy and her health and well-being. After just one cycle of IVF, she and her husband's baby were born. The doctors and specialists in Shanghai not only the medical expertise responsible for superior success rates, but the caring and compassionate approach that gave Catherine hope that pregnancy can happen in her case.

Sandra A

Procedure : Cancer Treatment

His / Her Experience : Excellent

"PET-CT scans really work and make a huge difference in diagnosis and treatment. When I was first diagnosed with lung cancer in the summer of 2005, I went for my first scan…the doctor told me afterward, 'you lit up like a Christmas tree,' that's when I knew I was trouble." Sandra's first PET-CT scan confirmed the exact location and extent of her lung cancer. Knowing the correct stage of her disease, her doctors were able to aggressively and effectively treat her cancer. "After I went through my chemotherapy, the doctors had me wait for about a year, and then sent me back to get another scan. I was completely cancer free!"

Michael

Procedure : Proton Beam Therapy

His / Her Experience : Excellent

A close friend of mine was treated for prostate cancer by proton beam therapy and suffers none of the usual consequences of other prostate treatments. Unlike conventional radiation, proton beam therapy does very little damage on the way in, releases its energy at the desired site (the "Bragg Peak") and does no damage on the way out. The site and surrounding tissue can be targeted to within millimeters. In addition, the patient suffers little to no effects, very unlike conventional radiation. Yes, facilities are expensive to build, but because there is virtually no collateral damage, there is no need for expensive follow-up and after care. But there are months-long waiting lists at the few existing proton centers in the U.S. Actually, for my research on internet, I found that If I go to Shanghai for proton beam therapy, I can save more than 50% cost and have no waiting time. I did a detailed research for myself to recognize the many advantages of proton beam therapy for prostate cancer in Shanghai. It is as or more effective than any other treatment option. It has fewer of the unpleasant side effects than any other option.

Maudine

Procedure : Hip Replacement

His / Her Experience : Excellent

I feel I was blessed in being allowed to make this trip. It will be an experience I will never forget. All the personnels speak good English and if there was ever a time when I had a small problem there was always someone there to help. As far as feeling homesick I felt that I had met many new friends. We traded many stories between us . My husband came with me and we had a very large room and he had his own bed, TV, ice box, and a computer to our use to be able to keep in contact with our family. Dr. Chen was very explanatory of my surgery and the problems with my knee and of the work and repairs that he made. We received a DVD of my hip surgery and of my heart test. After almost a year of pain and discomfort I am finally close to being my old self.

Jim (USA)

Procedure : Knee Surgery

His / Her Experience : Excellent

I can honestly say that I can't remember ever been taken care of by so many nice, kind, and caring people. I'm sure that many people will find it to be a big decision as I did to come to a different country not knowing anyone and worrying about the language barrier, and being so far from home.

Sonny Guerrini

Procedure : CyberKnife Cancer Treatment

His / Her Experience : Excellent

Sonny Guerrini is a student at the University of Brisbane, Australia. Everything went very well. The staff at SHCSCTC was very good. They spoke English, and there were translators as well. We stayed for 10 days and the treatment was for 6 days. The hospital is extremely modern, brand new, has all the facilities. And I was very impressed with the hospital. It was clearly a top-quality hospital. I immediately felt I was in good hands. The doctors were very professional. I didn't notice anything during the CyberKnife treatment. It was painless. I had 6 treatments that went on for 2 hours each time. I realized that CyberKnife is a superior medical treatment and the doctors too felt the same. I'm glad I made the decision.

Gerald Stauss

Procedure : Dental

His / Her Experience : Excellent

I have three children, and am a retired person. I was having a lot of problems with my teeth. I had four teeth in my lower jaw that were so loose they were ready to fall out. The price of dental treatment in the US is so exorbitant and I couldn't afford it. And I found out that by going to Shanghai, I could save more than half the money. Communication from SHMTPPP was great. There were no problems with the setup. I flew to Shanghai. I was met at the airport by a man holding a signboard with my name on it, and he took me immediately to the dental office. The dental clinic in Shanghai was clean, and no different from any dental clinic in the US. The equipment was modern and up-to-date. Most people I spoke with could speak English very well. The doctor was very fluent in English, there was no communication problem. I had 24 teeth done: dental bridges and dental crowns. That's a lot of teeth. The preliminary work was done in 2 and 1/2 hours. When I left the dental office that day, I had temporary teeth in my mouth. I was never without teeth, I was never embarrassed. On my last day in Shanghai, I had a final appointment at the dental clinic to make sure everything was fine. And they drove me to the airport. As a matter of fact, I was there in Shanghai from Tuesday to Tuesday and I had Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday free for sightseeing. I would recommend everybody go there. It was a wonderful experience. We had no problems at all. You can combine dental work with a vacation.

Marc

Procedure : Orthpedic

His / Her Experience : Excellent

Email : Markcc2010@yahoo.com.cn

In the Spring of 2010, I began experiencing radiating pain throughout my legs. Because I was 28 at the time, I assumed that this was just a temporary glitch in my body. A pinched nerve that might go away or an inflamed muscle. Unfortunately, the pain only became worse with time, and my regimen of exercise and yoga actually exacerbated my condition. After two weeks, I finally went in to Shanghai for a diagnosis. I'd heard wonderful things about Shanghai medical tourism platform, and most of these things turned out to be true. The facilities are plush, the staff members are extremely friendly, and all the doctors with whom I spoke were fluent in English. Most of all, I had a good effect of surgery.

Austin

Procedure : Back Surgery

His / Her Experience : Excellent

Email : AustinT@gmail.com

I live in Thailand. my experience with medical tourism in Shanghai was outstanding. Friendly staff, affordable prices, quality care, and delicious food. I was blown enough away that I decided to share my experiences with the world and help create Medical Tourism so that people like you could learn about this amazing industry. I hope that none of you ever becomes sick. And I hope that if you do become sick, health care in your country is accessible, affordable, and successful. But if you fail to qualify for proper care in your country, it's worth exploring what medical tourism can do for you. No one can promise that your experience will be just like mine (so be careful of companies and sites that offer guarantees). But with enough research and preparation, you can increase the likelihood of having a positive experience. I hope this was helpful for you. Stay healthy and keep smiling.

The patient's recovery is mostly based upon the power of mind. Being the hospitable environment, Shanghai Huashan Hospital had professionally provided the stage of medical atmosphere. With experienced doctors and staffs, the patients are hardly reluctant to feel the power of recuperation. My appreciation for such health care benefits will forever stay with me.

Just to tell you that I’ve been very surprised at the service I got at Shanghai. I used to treat in Shanghai but since I live abroad I do not come regularly. But I think that medical treatment in Shanghai is more suitable for me.
