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.

Nephrectomy is the surgical removal of all or part of a kidney. There are two types of surgery for nephrectomy: radical nephrectomy (to remove the entire kidney and tissues of fat that surround the kidney) and partial nephrectomy (removes only diseased tissue from a kidney and leaves the healthy tissue in place). The surgery is performed to treat kidney cancer and other kidney diseases. Sometimes, it is also performed to remove a healthy kidney from a donor for a transplant.
Nephrectomy can be performed through laparoscopic or open surgery. Both are performed under general anesthetic. Laparoscopic nephrectomy is usually performed to remove part of your kidney. Your surgeon makes small incisions in your abdomen to insert the laparoscope and small surgical tools. If your entire kidney needs to be removed, your surgeon will use open surgery. During open surgery, your surgeon makes one large incision on your abdomen or along your side.
You are required to stay in the hospital for two to five days. Plan to stay in Vietnam for around 10 to 14 days because you are likely to develop deep vein thrombosis after the surgery. You will also need to attend follow-up checkups, during which your surgeon will remove your stitches.
The recovery period after a nephrectomy may take around three to six weeks. During your recovery period, you should avoid any strenuous activity and follow the post-operative instruction that your surgeon gives you. The instruction usually includes dietary restriction, exercise, and care for your healing wounds
Most people can function well with only one kidney. After the procedure, you can resume your daily routine and activities after 3 weeks. However, you will likely need checkups to monitor kidney function. These include monitoring your blood pressure, waste filtration, and protein urine levels. Since you only have one kidney, you will need to eat a healthy diet and engage in regular exercise to preserve normal kidney function.
Nephrectomy is generally safe and the risks are very small. Partial nephrectomy has about a 95% success rate. Nevertheless, the procedure carries potential risks, such as bleeding, injury to nearby organs, infection, post-operative pneumonia, and rare allergic reaction to anesthesia.
For certain illnesses, there are alternatives that do not need the removal of a kidney. The alternatives include renal embolization.
After nephrectomy, you will no longer experience symptoms that you had before the surgery. The risk of cancer, as well as cancer spreading to other parts of your body, is also reduced. Remember that taking care of your remaining kidney is extremely important.
