The hospital is newly built, modern, well equipped. The quality of medical examination and treatment is much higher than before. If you live in Hai Ba Trung area and neighboring districts in Hanoi, this is the place to visit.
One of the best private hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City with reasonable prices, adequate equipment and clean rooms. Hospital has testing services, vaccines, CT scans, accommodation, emergency.
They have lots of patients but doctors and nurses in the ICU are hardworking and experienced. They don't accept gifts or money, which is a good practice.
Fantastic facilities and a very caring staff. The doctors were all fluent in English. Strangely, one of my highlights of being in Danang.
Our son was sick. The staff here were absolutely wonderful, found us an English speaking nurse who took us to the emergency and an English speaking doctor. The doctor was very thorough, and well spoken. The fees were very reasonable and our son was back to normal quickly. Many thanks to the staff, we are very grateful for your exceptional care.
I highly recommend this clinic for any expat needing medical care. From the moment I emailed them, I received excellent and efficient care. I was running out of a medication that I take daily, so I came in for a consultation. Dr. Paez was warm and caring, speaks perfect English, and took my full medical history. Although they did not have my medication in stock, they were able to order it so I can pick up in a few days (so I recommend not waiting until you are all out of your Rx; try to come in while you still have a week+ supply, just in case!). The fee for the consultation was reasonable, and I feel a sense of security knowing that I have established care here in Da Nang.

Bladder stones are hard masses made up of minerals in your urine located in your bladder. When your bladder blocks the flow of urine and irritates your bladder wall, your doctor may recommend that you undergo bladder stone removal. Your options to remove bladder stones include cystolitholapaxy and surgery.
Cystolitholapaxy is a minimally-invasive procedure performed under general or local anesthetic. During this procedure, your surgeon uses ultrasound, laser, and other tools to break the stones into tiny pieces and flush out the tiny pieces. If your bladder stones are large, your doctor will perform surgery in which your bladder is opened through an incision and the stones are then removed.
You may need to stay in the hospital for several days, typically around 3 to 4 days. However, you will need to attend follow-up appointments where your bladder will be checked by an X-ray or CT scan and the stitches will be removed by your doctor. Therefore, plan to stay for 7 to 10 days in Vietnam or until your surgeon tells you it is okay for you to return home.
The recovery time of cystolitholapaxy is a lot shorter than open surgery. In general, you should be able to resume most of your normal activities and go back to work within 2 to 3 weeks. If your job requires heavy lifting and physical activity, you may need more time before you can return.
Drinking plenty of water, around 8 glasses per day is very important after your surgery. During your recovery period, make sure to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activities. Your doctor will give you a set of instructions that include your diet plan, exercise, and care for the wounds to reduce your chances of infection. About a month after the procedure, schedule a follow-up checkup with your local doctor.
Bladder stone removal is very safe and effective, but there are some side effects and risks you need to be aware of. The main risk is urinary tract infection, which affects around 1 in 100 people who have bladder stone removal. Other risks and side effects include bleeding, infection, bladder tear or damage to internal tissue, and reaction to the anesthesia.
Bladder stone removal is only performed when your bladder stones are large, and you cannot completely empty your bladder of urine. Small bladder stones can be flushed out by drinking lots of water.
Bladder stones can cause painful symptoms, discomfort, and block your urine from getting out. After bladder stone removal, all of these problems will be gone and you can enjoy your life again.
