As per my understanding you want to know about the 1. Total knee replacement and 2. IVF. 1. Total Knee replacement surgery is done to replace the damaged joints so patient is relieved of symptoms. The knee joint with an artificial knee called prosthesis made of metal, plastic, and ceramic. It helps to restore function of the damaged knee and relieve arthritis pain. Knee replacement surgery is advised if the pain is interfering with your daily activities and negatively affecting your quality of life. Generalised fitness is important here. Total knee replacement is being done on the patients routinely, but some of the risks associated with this surgery are infection,blood clots, failure of the artificial joint, heart attack etc. Post surgery care, rehabilitation is very important. Consult an orthopedic. 2. In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a process of fertilization, where an egg is combined with sperm and fertilised outside the body, in a liquid in a laboratory. Consult a gynaecologist, who on valuation the case will guide through the treatment. Hope our answer helps you.

If you feel that you /the patient are not getting the right treatment, you can always get yourself transferred to other hospitals in the main metropolitan cities in India. You can look for treatment in Delhi, Mumbai or Hyderabad and you can be sure of the availability of treatment options, the quality or treatment and the experience of doctors. Here are some of the hospitals you can consider for your stage IV mouth cancer: Delhi: 1) All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) (Government Hospital) 2) Delhi State Cancer Institute (DSCI) (Government Hospital) 3) Dharamshila Narayana Superspeciality Hospital (Private Hospital) 4) BLK Super Speciality Hospital (Private Hospital) Mumbai: 1) Tata Memorial Hospital (Government Hospital) 2) Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer (ACTREC) (Government Hospital) 3) Jaslok Hospital (Private Hospital) 4) Saifee Hospital (Private Hospital) Hyderabad: 1) Basavatarakam Indo American Cancer Hospital and Research Institute (Charitable Hospital) 2) Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences (Government Hospital) 3) American Oncology Institute (Private Hospital) 4) CARE Hospital (Private Hospital) Hope my answer helps you.

My brother in law is diagnosed liver cancer by the Doctors in Cuttack, Odisha. He is relatively poor with almost no resources to support the treatment. With my limited income of around Rs 8 lakhs per year, I need to support him. The Regional Research center named " Acharya Harihar Cancer Research center" at Cuttack seems having no modern technology to treat the same ( Please correct me, if I am wrong). Request you to guide me which hospital can be the best choice. I can spend maximum upto 3-4 laks from my savings. Thanks in advance for the help. he needs immediate treatment.

Hello Kashinath! I am not sure about Acharya Harihar Cancer Centre not having the latest technology because it is a regional cancer centre. On the other side, if what you say is true, it is better that you get your brother in law treated at Charitable or Government Hospitals if there is a cash crunch. 


Referring to an answer I have written below, the cost of a liver surgical resection would be approximately 3500 USD ( 250,000 INR ). Given the money you have saved up ( 300,000 - 400,000 INR or 4250 - 5650 USD), you can even opt for a private hospital if there is an urgency or preference to get treated in one. 


You should go to major metropolitan cities like Hyderabad or Chennai which would be the closest to you:


Private Cancer Hospitals:

  1. American Oncology Institute
  2. Apollo Health City
  3. Fortis Malar Hospital
  4. Apollo Hospital

Government/ Charitable Cancer Hospitals:

  1. Adyar Cancer Institute, Gandhi Nagar (Charitable)
  2. Royapettah Government Hospital, West Cott Road (Government)

Hi, The Stage 4 Lymphoma treatment can be done with respect to the type of Lymphoma the person has, medical history and the organs it has affected. The details you have given is limited, so, we can suggest the hospitals that you could take in consideration. 


Since you have not mentioned where you are from let me tell you some of the private and government hospitals in major metropolitan cities in India. It will be better if you consider the private hospitals because the patient is in stage 4 and requires urgent treatment. In case you consider economy wise, go for government hospitals.

The tests required for detection of Head & Neck cancer and the number of days for the results to come in are - 1. Needle Biopsy : 2-3 days 2. Endoscopy : 1-2 weeks 3. PET-CT scan : 2 days 4. X-ray : 1-2 days 5. Ultrasound : 1-2 days 6. MRI : 1-2 days As no test requires more than 2 weeks, so I would suggest you to not wait for that long and immediately visit some other doctor. The hospitals that you can refer in Tamil Nadu: · Adyar Cancer Institute, Chennai · Apollo Cancer Speciality Hospital, Chennai If you want to go for any other hospitals, you can consider these: · Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Mumbai (Private) · Rajiv Gandhi Cancer institute and Research Centre, Delhi (Charitable) · Yashoda Hospital, Hyderabad (Private) Hope this helps you.

I am writing for my father's treatment. He has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in April 2018. He had gone through 6 cycles of of Alimta and carboplatin till October and then two cylces of Alimta only till December 2018. Up to October, he was doing great, had no side effects and his tumor size went down. After that he became very fatigued and also his tumor size increased significantly. In January 2019, Doctor put him on Docetaxel and so far he is doing good with no side effect. But, we would like to continue his treatment in your reputed hospital. I have attached his initial PET scan (April 2018) and recent PET scan (January 2019) along with few other CT scan. I appreciate if you could suggest me the doctor for his treatment and help me getting the appointments. Also, it would be very helpful if you can give me idea about the expenses. Since he will be coming from Bangladesh, it will take time to get visa and arrange rest of the stuff. Currently I am in Canada and planning to join him during his initial treatment at your hospital, preferably in March.

Hello, You can bring him to India for treatment given that Bangladesh has a dearth of good hospitals. You can visit any major metropolitan city in India for Lung Cancer treatment. Given it is in Stage 4, only Chemotherapy will be administered. In case of Chemotherapy, the prices depend on the drug prices, the number of cycles the drug is administered and whether you get your father treated in a Government/ Charitable Hospital or a Private Hospital. 


The cost of Chemotherapy are as follows: 

  • Government Hospital: Here they provide affordable/free treatment depending on your economic condition but the waiting period can be long. The approximate cost per cycle is 200 USD - 500 USD (14,300 INR  - 35600 INR) 
  • Private Hospitals: Here the treatment would come at a premium, but you will not have to wait. The approximate cost per cycle is 1200 USD - 1500 USD (85,300 INR - 107,000 INR) 

The best cancer hospitals in India both Government/ Charitable and Private are:

Since you have already begun with your medications there are various other remedies to help with its symptoms such as: 1. Exercise called Valsalva maneuver where you hold breath and strain as if you were trying to have bowel movement, 2. Coughing while sitting with your upper body bent forward. 3. Splashing ice water on your face 4. You also need to avoid smoking, caffeine, alcohol, and illicit drugs. PSVT is not a particularly life threatening disorder. Only if there are heart diseases present, it cause lead to congestive heart failure or angina. There are also many emergency and long term treatments to slow down a patient's heart externally, but those are done only for the patients with repeats episode of PSVT. If you want to consult with different doctors I can recommend some good hospitals. Since I'm not sure of your location and which hospital will be easier for you to visit, I will list some of the best heart hospital in India: 1. Fortis Escorts Heart Institute 2. Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, Delhi 3. All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi 4. Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital, Mumbai 5. Manipal Hospital, Bangalore 6. Fortis Malar, Chennai 7. Gleneagles Global Health City, Chennai 8. Apollo Health City, Hyderabad 9. Rabindranath Tagore International Institute of Cardiac Sciences, Kolkata 10. Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital (ABMH), Pune
