Medical Tourism Italy was born in 2012 and we started researching all the best medical specialties available in Italy – we soon found out that in some types of cancer treatment, Cardiology, Orthopedics, Rheumatology and Neurology are worldwide recognized as excellences.
In 2014 we met one of our first patients:
In summer 2014 we met one of our first patients. She came looking for us as she was looking for treatment for a condition that we had never heard of at the time: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, also known as CRPS, formerly known as RSD. She asked about the Neridronate infusions. We had no idea what she was talking about.
We met all the best specialists
We researched all the ins and outs of the condition: we discovered that Italy is the avant-garde in treating the condition, having some of the best specialists that have studied and even found a possible cure. We met all the best specialists that treat the condition and found those who were available to treat patients coming from abroad. We learnt all that is available in medical literature, thanks to the incredible doctors who work at the University Hospital of Verona.
The treatment got approved at the Italian Health Agency
We met Dr Adami before he unfortunately passed away, the university professor and rheumatologist that did over 20 years of research on the effects of bisphosphonates and the effects it has on the condition of CRPS patients. In 2012, the treatment got approved at the Italian Health Agency, the study of which was published also in the international medical journal Rheumatology.
we had several spontaneous requests
In the months following our first patient, we had several spontaneous requests of people asking for guidance, some where patients, others were sons, daughters, parents who could not bear to see their loved ones in constant suffering. We took some time to elaborate a special program and a framework for patients affected by CRPS
We've invested everything
We invested several months of our time and money in finding the specialists that were interested in treating the patients. Finding the right, efficient hospital with a management who was available to welcome foreign patients, finding the right accommodation, hiring the best assistants for the job of accompanying the patients to the hospital and staying at their disposal proved more complicated than expected.
In June 2016 We Started Our Online Ad Campaign
By June 2016 we had figured almost everything out and started our online ad campaign, one of the first to look specifically for CRPS patients who were searching for a cure, or at least an effective treatment that could reduce pain and drastically improve the quality of their lives.
Our Best Strength
Since then, dozens of patients have chosen CRPS Treatment to improve the quality of their life and help them get rid of the syndrome. The satisfaction of our patients and their testimonials are our best strength to prove how much hope and help this program has given to so many people!
