Corneal transplant surgery with private insurance

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:

Corneal transplant surgery via ASL

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.

Votazione: Eccellente
In 2005, after a number of visits and exams, I was diagnosed with Cornea Guttata Corneal Dystrophy and, all doctors told me that the corneal endothelial cells were disappearing and was going to become blind.

I looked ... Keep on reading this reviewfor second opinions in Sardinia, Italy and Spain, but the answer was always the same. One day my husband yelled at me “don’t give up and search the internet”. I went to my computer and searched: "Best Doctors for corneal dystrophy". I found Dr. Badalà and I decided to book a visit on March 10th, 2015.

I got to know Dr. Badalà in person: he reassured me and, with patience and simple words, explained a new technique of corneal transplant called DMEK.
He described the procedure step by step and told me I would have not become blind.
I did not know whether to cry or smile!

I underwent DMEK surgery on May 14, 2015. One month after surgery I could see colors clearly as I have not seen in years, since then at every follow-up (the last on January 26th, 2016) I keep receiving just good news.

I sincerely thank Dr. Badalà, for giving me hope and, most importantly, my sight back.
