Styloid Process Bone Shortening in Mexico

styloid-process-bone-shorteningStyloidectomy or styloid process bone shortening in Mexico is one of the economically feasible solutions for people suffering from Eagle Syndrome, but who cannot afford to pay for the expensive treatment in their home countries. Orthopedic treatments such as hand and knee surgery in Mexico are highly in demand among people who need the surgery but cannot come up with the amount of money these cost in the US or Canada.

Qualifying for Styloidectomy

  • The National Institutes of Health (NIH) defines Elongated Stylus Process or Eagle Syndrome as the condition in which the styloid process (SP) or its adjacent ligament ossification’s overall length is more than 30mm. This is a rare condition, and the NIH reports that it occurs in only about 4% of the general population. There are many nerves and vessels in the affected area, and the elongation of the stylus process can cause symptoms like neck and cervicofacial pain.
  • A good candidate for getting elongated styloid process treatment in Mexico (or for that matter anywhere) is a person with the above-described condition, usually between 30-50 years old, suffering from symptoms like dysphagia, tinnitus, and face and neck pain.
  • Of course, to ensure the patient’s safety, there will be a consultation and routine physical and laboratory examinations once you get to Mexico. This is true for all procedures, whether you are getting a minimally-invasive bariatric surgery or a more complex procedure like heart surgery in Mexico.

The fees for medical procedures in Mexico are generally lower than in the US or Canada. Most surgeries can go as low as 40% of how much they cost in first-world countries.

Tips for Going to Mexico for Treatment

  • There are two approaches to styloidectomy: intraoral or transpharyngeal approach and the extraoral approach.

The cost of styloidectomy in Mexico may also differ depending on the approach used.
