A 73-year old patient from Mali, who has not been able to walk for 2 years, starts walking after 2 months of treatment at Kardiolita Hospital in Vilnius, Lithuania – severe joint and general pains have stopped the patient from walking or moving more.
Vilnius, Lithuania -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/20/2016 -- In Mali, medical diagnostics and treatment is very limited due to the lack of up to date medical equipment and doctors' qualifications. Therefore, many patients are looking at options to go abroad for medical treatment.
Additionally to this being a huge out of pocket expense for a family, a major limitation that patients and their families wanting to go abroad for treatment face is getting the visa. Because many people wanting to leave the country would try to get a visa by trying to falsely plan medical treatment in one of the European countries, it makes the process extremely difficult for those who really plan to get medical services in one of the EU countries.
"We helped this family as much as we could to get the visa – because the patient was not walking, she had to come with a family member as an accompanying person – after providing all possible medical documentation, they got the visa and arrived to the hospital 1 week later." – says Andrius Jonutis, the General Deputy Manager at Kardiolita Hospital – the leading private general hospital in Vilnius, Lithuania.
The patient had extensive diagnostics performed at Kardiolita Hospital and the best choice was conservative treatment together with intensive rehabilitation.
"The patient spent 2 months at Kardiolita hospital, with daily rehabilitation activities and doctor visits. She left the hospital walking and happy – almost a year has passed now and the patient is living a normal life, making this a life changing positive change not only for herself, but also for her family members" – says Andrius Jonutis.
