Cenyt Hospital has set up a medical check-up programme
Everyone should aim to live with the best quality of life and an excellent state of health. To this respect, Cenyt Hospital has set up a medical check-up programme via which patients can obtain comprehensive and detailed information on their current state of health, anticipating any possible illnesses they may suffer from before they start to show symptoms.
Dr. Nina Vasileva, medical director at Cenyt Hospital and specialist in Internal Medicine, explains in detail what this Medical Check-up programme and its procedures consist of.
Why do I need to have a medical check-up?
Most diseases begin with mild and hard-to-detect symptoms and may take years to be diagnosed. This results in delayed treatment and complicates the course of the disease.
With Cenyt Hospital’s new Check-up programme, we offer patients a very high and thorough level of comprehensive health assessment, which helps prevent any future ailments. A single uncontrolled cardiovascular risk can, over the years, develop into a cardiovascular disease.
Prevent, detect and treat
These are the aims of the check-up. All the medical tests carried out as part of the Cenyt Hospital Medical Check-up programme are aimed at assessing the current state of health, ruling out the existence of any possible chronic or oncological diseases, assessing potential cardiovascular risk factors and making an early diagnosis.
How is the type of check-up selected?
The most appropriate check-up programme is recommended depending on the patient’s age, prevalent conditions and family history, which we will ascertain in a prior interview with the patient. There is always very individualised attention to advise the patient on what’s best for them.
What does the medical check-up programme consist of?
The programme goes far beyond what patients can obtain on their own or through medical companies. We follow a set procedure throughout the entire check-up. Patients undergoing one of Cenyt Hospital’s Medical Check-up services are always accompanied by hospital staff, who can assist them in Spanish, English or Russian. Constantly attended, in just 2 days all the complementary tests will be carried out, a very extensive analysis and consultations, which will begin with the attention of an internal medicine specialist and will see up to 5 specialists. The evaluation concludes with a physical health assessment, carried out by a specialist in clinical physiotherapy.
After all the tests, the internal medicine specialist will compile the reports from all the specialists and will present the patient with a comprehensive report with an overview of their state of health with all the results, diagnoses, prescribed treatment and recommendations for follow-up and monitoring.
This final report is explained to the patient in a one-on-one consultation lasting between 45 minutes and one hour.
Of course, this procedure comes with all the COVID safeguards. The patient must pass an antigen test before starting all the tests and will always remain in an individual room and rooms isolated from the rest of the patients at Cenyt Hospital.
We may also be able to arrange hotel accommodation for patients who request it.
What sort of tests are carried out?
They begin with a blood and urine test. Subsequently, radiological tests are carried out for a comprehensive study of the body (CT scan of the chest and abdomen with contrast; cranial MRI; various ultrasound scans to assess the thyroid and neck; Doppler scans and breast ultrasound scans for women).
In the following stages, consultations with the following specialists are carried out: cardiology, ophthalmology, ENT, dermatology with skin cancer screening and gynaecology (women) / urology (men) and clinical physiotherapy to assess physical health.
How much do Cenyt Hospital’s medical check-up programmes cost?
The patient should be aware that this type of comprehensive health check-up cannot be carried out individually. In other words, even if the patient has private medical insurance, they cannot access certain very specific tests that are included in these check-ups. Furthermore, the final report is the result of pooling all the tests and all the specialists’ criteria. Hence its high medical value and worth as a tool for predicting diagnoses and possible future illnesses. Depending on the programme chosen, the price ranges from €1,200 to €2,700.
