Endovascular surgery

Endovascular surgery

Endovascular Surgery Department was opened by Medpark International Hospital in order to bring to Moldova the latest treatment methods applied in top Western clinics, at the most affordable price. The proposed treatments allow patients to approach their medical problems in a very short time and with minimum intervention on their body.  Endovascular surgery is a modern surgery method, which is minimally invasive, performed without any incisions, through small punctures in the skin, under radiologic visual control. It is applied in numerous fields: angiology and vascular pathologies, gynecology, neurology and neurosurgery, oncology, urology and general surgical interventions.

The endovascular method is less traumatic, more efficient and more accessible than the traditional surgeries. The techniques of endovascular surgery allow doctors to successfully treat a variety of diseases through incisions of less than 2 mm. In most cases, the intervention doesn’t require general anesthesia, and the local anesthesia is applied on the spot of the puncture, in order to perform the endovascular surgery. This allows performing the surgery even on patients with severe diseases, to whom the treatment through classical surgery is inadvisable. Since after the surgery there are no stitches and wounds, in most cases the patients can be discharged within 1-3 days after the surgery.

The pain and the recovery period after such an intervention are significantly reduced.Now, in order to receive the best health care services, the patients no longer need to go abroad, away from their loved ones. Focusing on applied medicine, we use only modern treatment methods that have proven to be effective in numerous researches in the field, and we bring together the best specialists in Moldova and abroad, with extensive experience in the field.

To achieve our goal, we have everything required: emergency unit for medical first aid on duty 24/7, operating rooms equipped to perform the most complex minimally invasive procedures, resuscitation department, comfortable lounges for one or two people, specialized non-stop monitoring.
