Corneal transplant surgery can be performed in convention with the most important insurance companies, supplementary funds and health funds.
Some insurance companies consider a direct payment for health services, with no obligations for its patients; some others consider an indirect assistance.
In this case, the patient gets a refund after providing the invoices for the services.
We have conventions available with the following insurance companies:
Cataract surgery can be performed via the National Health Service (SSN) or ASL (Local Health Center).
This kind of surgery have waiting lists that can request even a few months, based on the transplant center. Dr. Badalà performs all corneal transplant surgeries in convention with the SSN in Milan. Artificial corneal transplant or Boston Keratoprosthesis can only be requested in convention with private insurances.
Vittoria Monza, MilanVotazione: EccellenteAfter an unsuccessful corneal transplant (resulting from a trauma), my right eye was given up for lost. Subsequently I met Dr. Badalà, and he told me that an artificial corneal transplant surgery (Boston Keratoprosthesi... Keep on reading this reviews) would have restored my sight.
I had no doubts, in December 2011 I underwent surgery. During the operation under local anesthesia, I did not feel any pain. I immediately went home at the end of the operation, sure that Dr. Badala would be available at any time.
The post-operation was without any complication. I immediately went back to my everyday life with some attention (at the time I was 69), happy with my sight back from an eye that I had given up for lost. The only thing to keep in mind is to be extremely scrupulous in following the eye drops treatment and, above all, do not miss the regular follow-ups.
Dr. Badala is extremely helpful. With his assistance you do not feel left alone! This point is very important .... And for this reason I'm very grateful.
