The state of Filipinos and the necessary endoscopic surgical advancement.
What is Kidney failure and How is it treated?
Our kidney is one of the most important organs in the human body. Though, humans can live with one perfectly healthy kidney too. Maintaining both throughout life is crucial. The kidneys filter and sift the waste from our blood. It eliminates all the waste from the body via urine. One of its other primary functions is to maintain the body’s fluid and electrolyte balance. Thus, maintaining it isn’t optional neither it should be taken for granted because if they don’t work efficiently, waste accumulates in our body resulting into risky health issues.
But due to a lot of factors, people experience kidney failures and Chronic kidney diseases, to treat this they can either opt for a kidney transplant or dialysis.
Kidney transplant is a surgical and shortest way to treat the damaged or failed kidneys whereas dialysis is a long process with continuous visits.
Why is Philippines at the top list majorly ranking for kidney transplants and why do the citizens choose it?
In Philippines, the average annual salary of its citizens is between $3,500 – $12,000.
A dialysis requires 2-3 visits a week that can consume 1.5 hours at the least at every visit. Dialysis is also expensive as compared to a kidney transplant in Philippines. Your family members can also donate you their kidney for kidney transplant in Philippines. In kidney transplant, after the surgical process, patients are on immune suppression pills and that’s it. They don’t have to pay visits or pay for anything more. Money is one of the biggest reasons why Filipinos choose to have Kidney transplant in Philippines over Dialysis as it costs less and is the only affordable option.
Also, people cannot afford to take out so much time in a day and visit the hospitals for their dialysis. If they choose to stay busy with the treatment they won’t be able to work efficiently and that will affect their annual income.
The ANBIS International medical support service’s project, what is it?
The motive of ANBIS International‘s project is to analyze and scrutinize the concept and potentialities of orifices transluminal endoscopic surgery in IRCAD-Strasbourg and develop a well fitted and precise instrumentation for the motive.
Orifices transluminal endoscopic surgery is a blend of therapeutic endoscopy and the laparoscopy surgery. Laparoscopy surgery is also known as scar less surgery. Orifices transluminal endoscopic surgery will also include kidney surgeries that can cure chronic kidney diseases and it’s not just the Philippines that needs this advancement but all other nations in the world. In order to bring in the vision in reality, a collaboration took place within IRCAB with surgeons, gastroenterologists, gynaecologists, computer scientists and robotic partners.
