Parkinson S Cost In Egypt

Cost of Parkinson S in Egypt: Detailed Overview

Parkinson's disease can be defined as a disease of the central nervous system in which the patient experiences the following symptoms -

  • Shaking
  • Tremors 
  • Rigidity of joints
  • Difficulty in body balancing and walking

These symptoms arise at a late age and gradually aggravate, leading to too much difficulty in sustenance.

It happens because nerve cell damage in the brain leads to a drop in dopamine neurotransmitters.

The treatment of Parkinson's disorder comprises many aspects depending upon the stage of the disease.

In early-diagnosed cases, exercise is advised to maintain control over body movements.

A few medications which will help in easing out the symptoms to a very extent are -

  • Dopamine promoters
  • Antidepressants
  • Anti-tremor
  • Cognition-enhancing medications

However, in advanced cases, we must go for deep brain stimulation procedures and medications.

Frequently Asked Questions Related to Parkinson S Cost

The surgical treatment for Parkinson's disease known as Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) requires specific tests to ensure it is safe to proceed. Brain imaging investigations, ultrasonography, MRI, and PET scans are among the diagnostics available. Along with this specific blood and urine tests are done to detect any abnormalities and poisonous substances. Although the pre-surgery tests are included in the package, the blood tests are either included or excluded.

During the stay in the hospital, all the medical expenses are included in the package. However, the medicines required in the post-treatment period after the patient is discharged are usually not included in the package.

Usually, the patient is required to stay in the hospital for 4-5 days after the surgery. The doctor then takes follow-up with the patient and recommends home care practices. The hospital stay, as well as the services, are included in the package. However, overstaying beyond the package days in the hospital is chargeable.

The doctor calls for follow-ups after two to four weeks of surgery. Further, the doctor assists the patient with the required number of follow-ups. These appointments are not included in the package.

Most insurance companies provide either partial or full aid for DBS surgery. The insurance usually covers expenses incurred on pre-and post-hospitalization stay as well as the medicine cost and ambulance services.

A technique known as extradural motor cortex stimulation (EMCS) can be an alternative to DBS and is also less invasive in nature. However, more research is required in this area and it’s best to contact your doctor to know the best course of action.
