Hepatology is a medical speciality that incorporates the study of the pancreas, biliary tree, liver & gallbladder and the management of their disorder. Diseases and complications concerned with alcohol and viral hepatitis are one of the most common reasons why patients seek a hepatologist’s help. Almost 80% of people around the world have been afflicted by the hepatitis B virus at one point in their life, which also makes them more prone to the risk of liver cancer. Advancements have definitely helped in reducing the amount of death caused by liver diseases, but the expensive cost of treatment often force patients to delay the treatment. These patients can book the best hepatology hospitals in India and receive treatment at the right time at an affordable cost without compromising with their lives.
1. How do I know which is the right hospital for me? How do I review/assess a hospital?
Patients should check the following things before selecting a hepatology hospital in India:
Is the healthcare facility certified by NABH or JCI? NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers) is an Indian medical quality standard made for the security of patients to help them analyze the quality of the treatment. JCI (Joint Commission International) is a global accreditation board that determines the quality of treatment delivered by hospitals that come under its umbrella.
How are the reviews of the hospital? Patients can go through the ratings and reviews of old patients for determining the quality of treatment which will be delivered to them.
What are the qualifications of the hepatologists working at the hospitals? Patients should also check the profiles of the doctors, to ensure that they are qualified to work on their case, before making a selection based merely on the reputation of the hospital.
Does the hospital have the required technologies for the treatment? Patients should research the facilities and the technology available at the hospital, to ensure that they receive the best treatment for their condition.
Patients can also use Medmonks for comparing the infrastructure, technology and the experience of staff available at different hepatology hospitals in India, and receive treatment from the best.
2. What new technologies can be used to perform hepatology procedures?
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography – is a diagnostic test that is used for treating numerous pancreatic and biliary diseases.
SPAD (Single Pass Albumin Dialysis) – is a method used for albumin dialysis by renal replacement machines without a perfusion pump system. The membrane is cleansed by the albumin solution, which passes through a filter present in it.
Molecular Absorbents Recirculation System – aka MARS is also a liver dialysis technique. It has two dialysis circuits — one with human serum albumin and filters and second with a hemodialysis machine which is used for cleaning the substance in the first circuit.
Prometheus – is a new advanced device which uses a combination of high-flux hemodialysis and albumin absorption after selective filtration of the albumin through a polysulfone filter (called AlbuFlow).
