CARTAGENA, Colombia, June 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- El Nuevo Hospital de Bocagrande de Cartagena
Doctor Nayib Zurita, Fellow of the American College of Surgeons that accredits him as a specialist of high level standards in the United States, said the institution has had 99% of successful cases of minimally invasive procedures to foreigners and 97% in Colombian patients. He emphasized the quality of care is essential for national and foreign patients.
The specialist, coordinator for general and laparoscopic surgery of the Nuevo Hospital de Bocagrande, also said the benefits that receive the patients who were operated through this technique are related to lower costs of hospitalization. "For example, a bariatric surgery by laparoscopy practiced in overweight people, cost about 6.000 to 7.000 dollars, including hospital expenses, transfers and stay during the recovery time in a tourist town such as Cartagena (12 days). At hospital, patients will also have a recovery environment beneficial for them and their families thanks to the privileged view to the sea and the warm assistance".
The most common procedures by laparoscopy are those related to gastrointestinal issues: gall bladder, hernia, gastroesophageal reflux, adrenal, pancreas, liberation of adhesions, cecal appendix, benign and malignant pathology of colon and bariatric surgery.
