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.

A bunion is a bony bump that occurs when some of the bones in the front part of your foot move out of place and causes your big toe to point laterally towards your little toe. A bunion is a foot deformity that can be painful. When nonsurgical treatment methods cannot relieve the pain and the problem restricts you from carrying out everyday activities, your doctor may recommend for you to undergo bunion surgery (also known as a bunionectomy, bunion removal, or hallux valgus correction) to correct the deformed area.
Bunion surgery can be performed under local anesthetic, but you may also request a general anesthetic. During the surgery, your surgeon straightens the bone behind the big toe by cutting the ligaments at the joint. If your bunion is severe, the surgeon may need to have the bone cut by performing a technique called an osteotomy.
You may leave the hospital on the same day of the procedure, but you need to stay in Vietnam for 2 weeks. During your stay, you will attend follow-up hospital checkups to monitor your healing as well as for the removal of stitches.
The full recovery period can take around four to six months. However, you should be able to return to work and some light activities within four to six weeks. You may also drive after two weeks if necessary.
During the first couple of weeks, you will need to wear a cast or surgical boot to protect your foot and you make sure you do not get your stitches wet. Your surgeon will likely send you to physical therapy so you can learn exercises to strengthen your foot and lower leg. Since your foot will remain swollen to some degree for a few months, try to wear shoes with ample room to minimize the pain.
Bunion surgery is known to be highly successful with almost 95% of patients indicating they would recommend it to other people. However, just like any surgery, there is the risk of some side effects and complications, such as recurrence of the bunion; the surgery overcorrects the bunion so your toe points inward.
Bunion surgery should only be performed when it is severe. If you do not want to undergo this procedure, you can opt for the alternatives, including taking over-the-counter medications (acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen sodium), changing your shoes, using nonmedicated bunion pads, applying ice to your bunion, and using shoe inserts to help distribute the pressure evenly.
A severe bunion can cause discomfort, pain, and limit your mobility. After bunion surgery, you will be able to complete your everyday routines.
