Mr. Kamruzzaman from Bangladesh shares her India Medical Travel Experience.
“To discover that I suffered from spine problems was quite a shock for me. I then went to the Internet and found SafeMedTrip website amongst several others. I sent e-mails off with my specific problem outlined to three sites.
Almost instantly I received a response from SafeMedTrip asking for my medical reports, which I mailed to them. Just the next day I got another email with so much of valuable information about the treatment options I had and the profiles of the doctors and number of surgeries performed by them. I followed their advice for surgery that would also take care of my other concerns about cancer spill and impotency.
SafeMedTrip helped me immensely to apply for India visa and make arrangements to fly to Indian and have the procedure done.Request a Call Back

Osteoporosis is a condition where the bone density decreases with advancing age, due to deficiency of calcium and vitamin D. With increased life expectancy, osteoporosis has emerged as a potentially disabling condition of the old age. This condition makes the bones of the body weak and susceptible to fractures, especially of the spine. Approximately 85% fractures in old age are caused by osteoporosis and remaining 15% are caused by bone weakness caused by other conditions such as spread of cancer to the bones. Out of these one third patients may present with significant pain in spite of non-operative measures like bed rest, hospitalization, pain killer medications or bracing.
The goals of the vertebroplasty surgical procedure are to stabilize the spinal fracture and to stop the pain caused by the fracture. Vertebroplasty is considered a minimally invasive surgical procedure because the procedure is done through a small puncture in the patient’s skin (as opposed to an open incision).Get Estimate
The patient recovery is quick as it is a minimally invasive surgery with very little blood loss and damage to surrounding tissues. The patients are kept under observation for 1-2 hrs after which they are discharged. They return to normal day to day activities within a week.Get Estimate
What is Osteoporotic Vertebral Fracture?
Osteoporosis is complicated by vertebral fracture that occurs spontaneously or is caused by minor trauma. These vertebral fractures are often highly painful and are treated with immobilization, analgesic drugs, and specific treatment of osteoporosis. But immobilization increases demineralization. Therefore in spite of long-term medical treatment, some patients have severe, persistent, incapacitating pain. Later consequences of vertebral fracture include reduced height, kyphosis (hunch back), and chronic back pain.Get Estimate
Vertebroplasty also known as Percutaneous Vertebroplasty is a spinal procedure in which bone cement is injected through a small hole in the skin (percutaneously) into a fractured vertebra with the goal of relieving the pain of osteoporotic compression fractures and providing strength to the bone. Vertebroplasty is used for patients with vertebral compression fractures due to osteoporosis, metastatic tumors, or benign tumors such as vertebral heamangiomas. It also provides vertebral stabilization when the lesion threatens the stability of the spine.
Vertebroplasty can increase patient mobility, decrease narcotic needs, and prevent further vertebral collapse. Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive, image-guided procedure done by a spine surgeon.
It is performed on out patient basis under local anaesthesia and light sedation. During the procedure, bone cement, polymethylmethacrylate(PMMA) is injected with a biopsy needle into the collapsed or fractured vertebra with x-ray guidance. The acrylic cement quickly dries and forms a support structure within the vertebra that provides stabilization and strength. The needle makes a small puncture in the patient’s skin that is easily covered with a small bandage after the procedure. Get Estimate
