-- I am Sheikh Mohammad, a native of Pakistan. I was suffering from brain meningioma, but because of unavailability of good treatment services and poor medical infrastructure in Pakistan I was very confused to take risk for getting brain meningioma treatment done from Pakistan or to go for any other treatment center in the west due to high medical cost. Then I had discussion with my cousin brother Javed who is living in India since partition, he told me that I could get affordable cost brain meningioma surgery in India. Javed told me about Forerunners Healthcare a medical consultancy providing low cost health recovery in India with the best hospital care. Then I interacted with consultants of that company, and they told me everything about the hospital facilities and surgeons available for brain meningioma surgery in India. They told me to have MRI scan at Pakistan and after that it will be clear for them to tell me further details of treatment. I had MRI scan at Pakistan, after that I sent all details to Forerunners Healthcare consultants;
then I was given an appointment with a brain tumor surgeon of Chennai and was told to come in time for my brain meningioma surgery in India at a low cost package with the comfortable stay. I went to India for brain meningioma surgery, and the operation was successfully done by brain tumor surgeons of India at Chennai. And now I am very happy about my decision of going to India for the brain meningioma surgery.
In brain meningioma surgery, if brain tumor symptoms are present, doctors will perform a thorough neurological exam to check vision, hearing, balance, coordination and reflexes. The physician will then order imaging tests to locate the problem. MRI is the most sensitive test for identifying brain tumors. MRI scans are used to obtain a picture of the tumor and can tell the extent of the tumor and whether it is invading or pressing on the surrounding brain. After MRI scan, further treatment procedure is clear. Many patients with meningioma have no symptoms. For these patients, carefully watching the tumor is often appropriate. If the tumor is pressing on surrounding tissue, with or without symptoms, the treatment of choice is usually to surgically remove the tumor (resection). Meningiomas are usually slow-growing (benign) tumors that develop from the meninges, the protective linings of the brain and spinal cord. They may be found over the surface of the brain (the convesities)
, at the base of the brain, or along the folx, a fibrous sheath dividing the right and left sides of the brain. Meningiomas account for about 20 percent of primary brain tumors. Although they are almost always benign, meningiomas can be difficult to remove completely and can recur. Most meningiomas are referred to as typical meningiomas (slow growth, often surgically curable). On the other end of the spectrum are malignant meningiomas which grow more rapidly and can invade the surrounding bone and/or brain; in some instances, they can spread to other parts of the body. In between the typical and the malignant meningioma is the atypical meningioma. For atypical and malignant meningiomas, radiation is often used after surgery. Meningiomas may not cause symptoms and are sometimes detected incidentally on CT or MRI scans obtained for other reasons.
Brain meningioma surgery is done in India at a less price which is affordable with world class hospitals and by best brain tumor surgeons. Medical tourism in India assists in brain meningioma surgery at best brain tumor treatment centers of India at Chennai, Bangalore and Mumbai also the cost of brain meningioma surgery in India is lower as compared to that in private hospitals in U.K or U.S.A. Patients from abroad come to India for getting their medical treatment done at low cost; also one of the reasons of coming to India for treatment is the availability of good treatment facilities and best medical infrastructure in India.
