Less is More

Mr Carter's treating specialist suggested he underwent additional surgery. He took Medix's advice to settle for non-invasive treatment, and the medical problem he suffered from soon disappeared

Mr Carter is a 57 year old gentleman living in Slovenia. For a number of weeks he experienced a dull burning ache in his chest which usually arose after eating. Skeptical of the quality of local medical treatment, he postponed the doctor's appointment for a number of weeks before succumbing to the pain and discomfort.

 

He turned to a local physician who recommended that he visit a hospital as the doctor lacked the proper equipment to diagnose and treat his condition. As a result he consulted with another specialist that failed to inspire confidence and therefore Mr Carter did not pursue further care.

 

Confused and frustrated, Mr Carter was referred to Medix for assistance. Recognizing that local treatment would not suffice, Mr. Carter's Medix medical team coordinated his travel to Vienna. An appropriate specialist was located and a consultation was urgently arranged. Upon arrival in Vienna, Mr Carter was admitted, underwent a number of tests, was treated with IV antibiotics and eventually underwent a surgical removal of his gallbladder. Following surgery, his symptoms subsided and once recovered from the procedure he was discharged.

 

Despite the improvement in symptoms, the treating surgeon was of the opinion that Mr Carter had a hiatal hernia which was causing reflux disease and would require another surgery to treat. This opinion was reviewed by his Medix case manager, a specialist gastroenterologist which was concerned with this recommendation. In his opinion the condition could first be treated by medication in a non-invasive manner.

 

This information was conveyed to Mr Carter who was reluctant to act on the advice seeing as he had already come to trust the treating surgeon. With Medix’s encouragement, he agreed to refer for a second opinion locally. Sure enough, this opinion concurred with the Medix opinion, convincing Mr Carter to postpone surgery and try conservative treatment first.

 

Medix stayed in contact with Mr Carter throughout his course of treatment, stayed in contact with his treating physician and sent his follow up tests and imaging for review. Over the course of a few weeks his symptoms all disappeared. Imaging that was performed revealed that the inflammation in his stomach had subsided and that the medication could be stopped if the correct lifestyle adjustments were made. Medix assisted in planning of these changes. Mr Carter was thrilled with the service, his only regret being that he didn't approach Medix sooner.
