There are certain criteria you have to meet in order for your insurance company to approve the procedure, i.e. be 100 lbs. overweight, have health problems like diabetes, hypertension. So really it is not up to the primary doctor to deny you, it is more the insurance company. There is almost 6months to a years pretesting needed for this surgery too. You will need: blood work, ekg, chest x ray, stomach endoscopy, colonoscopy, psychiatric evaluation, gallbladder sonar, and you will need to see your primary doctor for 6 visits, one per month to weigh you and check your general health. Just remember that this isn't an instant solution to a weight problem, the easy part is getting the weight off, but keeping it off is all up to you. You have to make changes in your diet and not go back to your old eating habits. Make sure if approved that you go to a board certified surgeon that has done numerous procedures like this. I wish you all the best. Here you will get more information about Bariatric Surgeons.

I had an ear operation and lost the taste of food is there any way I can get it back


While I get that this is food related, is has no direct connection to fridges, or am I mistaken? ;-)

Ruth, your question needs to be answered by a physician. There are too many variables involved (When was the operation? What was the procedure exactly? Which anaesthetic was used? Etc.)
Please contact the surgeon or doctor who operated on you, let him know about your situation and ask for help.

How do I get in contact with a kidney dr.


First of all. Do not just trust any Doctor. If you have a Family Doctor, or Clinic that you are using now, and You are seeing him or her right now. and The Doctor is Board Certified. Then ask him or her for Their Reference of a Great Kidney Doctor that they would trust with their lives. This is what I have done with my own case when I knew I had cancer of the colon, yet my doctor who was a residency fresh out of College Doctor didn't know enough about these types of things. So I asked repeatedly for a reference to a certified colon specialist. From there go to that Doctor and get a written Symtoms evaluation of what they have fond with your tests, and exams. Remember to always get a written evaluation. Always! That way helps when you have a disagreement over the expressed opinions from one doctor to another doctor, and rememeber that you can also talk with Two -Three different Referals from each doctor till one - two say The Same Things about the Same Exams, and give the same Diagnoisis for the Same Problems. This is very important. Good Luck to you.

Can my hair transplantation done look natural ?


Hair transplantation if done to perfection can obviously look natural and it's hard to recognize the implanted hair from others as these re healthy donor hairs. There are various hair growth treatments such as natural hair restoration, hair transplantation etc. which if done by experienced professional physicians can look really natural. My friend who lives in Toronto got help in hair transplantation from this clinic which had excellent track records.

Arthritis knee pain


First of all your doctor needs to distinguish between Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis. They require different treatments. He might also suggest pills for the pain such as paracetamol or diclofenac which are more effective than the cream. He might also refer you to an orthopaedic surgeon who can help you with specific joints.

Is there a doctor to a person who can't hear


Hi there,

Have a blessed day.

When it comes to diagnosing and treating ear problems, doctors basically have three levels of "ear expertise." They are from least to most-primary care physicians (PCP), ear, nose & throat doctors (ENTs) and otologists/neurotologists. Each has their own niche.
1. Medical Doctors/Primary Care Physicians (MD/PCP) Often your first contact with the medical community is with a standard Medical Doctor (MD), often called a Primary Care Physician (PCP), General Practitioner (GP) or Family Doctor. These doctors have no specialized training in treating ear problems. However, you often need to go to one of these doctors in order to get a referral to an ear specialist such as an ENT or otologist.
Family doctors normally treat ear conditions of the outer ear and ear canal such as removing ear wax or treating infections in the ear canal. For problems in the middle and inner ear, they should immediately refer you to the appropriate ear specialist.
2. Ears, Nose & Throat Doctors (ENT) The middle level of "ear expertise" is the Ear, Nose & Throat doctor, commonly referred to as an ENT. The fancy term for these doctors is otolaryngologist (OH-toe-lar-ing-JOL-uh-jist) or sometimes by the ******-twisting name of otorhinolaryngologist (OH-toe-RYE-noe-lar-ing-JOL-uh-jist). (When you break this name down, it is easier to understand and pronounce. Oto-ear, rhino-nose and larynx-throat). Sometimes these doctors are called EENTs (eyes, ears, nose and throat doctors).
ENTs are medical doctors that have taken further training and specialized in problems of the ears, nose and throat.
Despite the name, ENTs do not spend a lot of their time working with ears. One otologist told me that he estimated the average ENT only spent about 5% of his time with ears. Thus you cannot expect them to be experts on many kinds of ear problems.
ENTs generally specialize in problems of the middle ear-typically middle ear infections and medical problems of the middle ear. This may include surgical procedures for things like otosclerosis, or removing middle ear tumors such as cholesteatomas. They may also perform CI surgery.
3. Otologists (Neurotologists) At the top of the pile is the otologist (oh-TOL-uh-jist) and neurotologist (NEU-roe-oh-TOL-uh-jist). Otologists and neurotologists are medical doctors who have trained as ENTs and then completed additional studies is the sub-specialty of otology (or neurotology). These are the real ear experts and are the doctors that know the most about inner ear problems.
If you experience sudden hearing loss and there is no obvious reason, these are the doctors that most likely will be able to help you. In fact, otologists/neurotologists are the only doctors (as a whole) that seem to recognize the true emergency nature of sudden hearing loss. Unfortunately, there are not very many otologists/neurotologists in the country.


Hope it helps.

I have gall stone, what medicine is the best for the stone to be disssolved by this medicine?


Hi Silver

REMOTE MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS AND MEDICATION PRESCRIPTION

We do advise here on faults with certain types of medical equipment, but this is not the correct forum for medical diagnosis or the prescription of medication and remote medical diagnoses and medication prescriptions are generally not an advisable approach to the resolution of medical problems. I strongly suggest that you refer this matter to a doctor.

Click the link below for detailed information on Gall Stones, which can be a life threatening condition for which the attention of a qualified doctor or surgeon is strongly recommended.

Pay particular attention to sections on treatment and the limitations of the effectiveness of medication for this medical condition.

I hope this helps.

Start by working out what it is you want the system to do.
You say 'hospital management'
- does it need to keep track of patients & staff (patients A, B, C & D are in Ward E looked after by Nurses F & G, whilst their doctor is Doctor H)
- does it need to allocate patients & staff (patient C requires an operation. Op. Rooms X, Y & Z are free. As are surgeons M, N & P. However each surgeon has different skills and each room is a different distance to current position of patient C in ward E. System works out most suitable room and surgeon.)
- does it need to send notices to patients' GPs informing them of current progress and status
- (in US) does it need to charge patient for healthcare recieved
- etc.
Is the system going to replace an existing one? Is so, analyse it. If not, locate an existing system and analyse that instead.
- How does the system work
- What does it do well
- What doesn't it do well
- What should it do but doesn't at all
- etc.
You can gain much information via Interviews and questionnaires
Once you know what the system will do, you can start to design it.
