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
A few years ago I discovered I had a quite rare disease called "Fuchs' dystrophy," which affects the cornea.

I had troubles driving and was always seeing through the fog. The fog was getting worse and worse, making it... Keep on reading this review difficult to distinguish different objects. I had great difficulty, even to watch TV.

I was considering myself on the way to blindness and was wondering how could I deal with my new "low vision status".  I did not give up and started looking around!

I finally found a specialist using cutting edge technology: Dr Badala. He explained me my condition and reassured me! Then he proposed a new corneal endothelium transplant called  DMEK. I finally decided and underwent surgery.

I faced some difficulties, like lying down supine for about 48 hours, but it was worth it! Now my low vision is just a memory!

I started to see immediately: everything was clear! I could even make out the pictures on TV! Coming back home, I saw my cat with its true colors in contrast: black and white, rather than an indefinite gray as before surgery !! So? !! ... Thanks a lot  Dr. Badalà!
