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.

Elbow surgery is a surgical procedure to treat an injured elbow, such as damage in the tendons that connect your muscles to the elbow bone. The procedure is required when other treatment options cannot improve the symptoms and affect your ability to perform a simple task, such as lifting a cup.
There are two types of elbow surgery: open surgery and arthroscopic surgery, both can be performed under general or local anesthetic. In open surgery, your surgeon makes a single incision above the bone on your elbow side and removes the damaged part of the tendon. In arthroscopic surgery, your surgeon creates small incisions in the skin over the elbow to insert tiny instruments and a camera, then, the damaged parts of your tendon are removed using these tiny instruments. Depending on your condition, elbow surgery may also involve replacing your elbow joint.
Elbow surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, which means you can leave the hospital on the same day. Nevertheless, you will need to stay in Vietnam for 5 to 7 days for initial recovery, follow-up hospital checkups, and removal of stitches.
The total recovery time before you are allowed to exercise or play sports can be as long as four to six months. However, you should be able to return to work and some light activities within six to twelve weeks.
There are usually no dietary restrictions, but you should eat a healthy and balanced diet. You will need to do strengthening exercises, but make sure to do it with a physical therapist that will show you the right exercises to strengthen your elbow. After you are fully recovered, always be careful not to injure your elbow again and your doctor may recommend exercises to strengthen your shoulder so you can take the pressure off the elbow.
Approximately 80% to 90% of people who have elbow surgery said that their pain was reduced and their movement improved. Elbow surgery has possible side effects and risks, including infection, damage to nerves in the elbow, damage to blood vessels in the elbow, reduced strength, reduced flexibility, severe pain, swelling that does not go away, redness, numbness, fever, and tingling sensations in your hands or fingers.
If you do not want to undergo surgery, you can usually treat it with pain relievers and rest. Your doctor may also recommend an elbow brace and a few adjustments to your daily activities. However, for severe cases, you may want to consider elbow surgery.
Injury in your elbow can be very painful and limit your movements. After elbow surgery, you will be able to move your elbow easily and all pain will be reduced. As a result, you can continue to enjoy sports and other activities.
