What is pulmonary emphysema?
Smoking and poor ecology are commonly cited as the main causes of pulmonary emphysema. Secondary emphysema is often diagnosed in patients with COPD. The disease is a chronic disease of the respiratory system in which the walls of the alveoli are destroyed and the lung loses its ability to contract. As a result, the lung tissue is excessively stretched, and cavities filled with air are formed in it. This condition further leads to impaired respiratory function and heart failure.
The cost of treating emphysema in Ukraine is quite high, which is primarily due to the prices of drugs needed by such patients. And the more the disease progresses, the higher the cost of therapy. But the main problem for patients in Ukraine is the lack of accurate diagnostics. Due to the lack of modern high-precision equipment in domestic clinics, it is very difficult to diagnose emphysema at an early stage. The situation is further complicated by the fact that at the initial stage the disease is almost asymptomatic, and the characteristic symptoms (feeling of lack of air, chest deformity, spontaneous pneumothorax) appear when emphysema has reached a later stage.
Methods for treating emphysema in Israeli clinics, prices for services
Every year more and more patients from the CIS countries come to Israel to use the services of the best pulmonologists and undergo emphysema treatment, the cost of which in Tel Aviv clinics is significantly lower than in Western Europe.
Israeli medicine is based on the most modern techniques and advanced achievements of pharmaceuticals. For each patient, an individual treatment program is drawn up here, observing an integrated approach, which allows achieving excellent results in the treatment of emphysema of different stages and forms.
The cost of the "Emphysema Treatment" service depends on the methods and drugs used. In addition, prices in different clinics may vary slightly, which allows the patient to choose the most suitable option for himself.
Despite the fact that today a complete cure for emphysema is considered impossible, Israeli clinics that provide services for patients with such disease, use all available techniques to alleviate the well-being of patients and minimize discomfort. Traditional emphysema treatment programs include:
- drug therapy;
- physiotherapy procedures;
- therapeutic bronchoscopy;
- stem cell therapy cells;
- surgical intervention (if necessary).
Another advantage of Israeli pulmonary centers is a high level of diagnostics. Possessing the most modern medical equipment and applying innovative methods in their work, Israeli doctors can accurately determine the type and degree of damage to the respiratory system.
