Rehabilitation services: rehabilitation initiated at an early or later stage after musculoskeletal surgeries, treatment methods combining in- and out-patient care services.
2. General surgery
General surgery encompasses the full range of head-neck and abdominal surgery. In addition to minimally invasive surgeries performed with state-of-the-art endoscopic instrumentation, treatment of disorders requiring extended surgery is delivered by our highly experienced and widely acknowledged specialists.
Our Institute’s preventive care and screening services have nationwide significance. The medical technology environment supporting our surgical care services bear comparison with any. Minor procedures of the reproductive organs are performed on an out-patient (ambulatory) basis, thus the patient does not need to be hospitalized. The state-of-the-art endo-laparoscopic instrumentation enables our specialists to perform ambulatory, or one-day surgeries of disorders and diseases affecting the urinary tract, prostate and kidneys, and if necessary, extended surgeries or radical laparoscopic urological procedures as well.
Our Institute is one of the firsts in Hungary to employ MRI-ultrasound fusion biopsy of the prostate using the most advanced medical technologies applied worldwide. With this technique, tissue samples for histologic examination can be drawn out of the prostate’s cancerous lesions through the skin using a thin tube, which is guided to the suspicious areas with extreme precision. The patient is under general anaesthesia during the procedure. Even 15-20 tissue samples can be drawn out during a procedure, maximising the examination’s precision and safety. As opposed to current techniques employed elsewhere, in which a needle is passed through the wall of the rectum, this method significantly reduces the risk of infections.
For our patients to feel more comfortable, we established a pleasant and relaxing environment, which makes a hospital stay easier: at our single and two-bed rooms with a separate bathroom, television, refrigerator and Wi-Fi connection come as standard. According to our patients’ needs, dietitian consultation, massage therapy and physiotherapy are also available (these may be part of the basic health care package depending on the patient’s health problem).
Our hospital’s kitchen meets all patients’ needs. Our qualified staff works under the supervision of a recognized and ambitious chef, thus creating personalized menus is always possible. Meals are served by a different staff using customized, covered tray systems. It is possible to order fruits, healthy drinks and refreshments between main meals.
Examinations before surgery
We provide examinations before surgery at the Buda Health Center, which may cover a full range of tests depending on the actual health problem. An anaesthesiologist’s consultation is mandatory before every surgeries in order to evaluate and minimize risks of surgical anaesthesia (general anaesthesia). Full laboratory panel, chest X-ray and ECG are required for the evaluation. (The anaesthesiologist may request additional examinations as well.)
Examinations and admissions to any departments are arranged with the greatest of care, which generally characterizes Buda Health Center. Quality approach, which is employed in private out-patient services as well, determines not only the medical service, but the whole process also including registration, consultations, hygiene considerations, catering and the respect for patients’ rights. Patients’ safety and the quality of care are guaranteed by a standardized quality management system.
