These real cases show some of the ways in which PGH successfully and tangibly helps patients and their families.

"What differentiates PGH from the rest is its capability to appoint first-rate medical institutions, professionals, and other resources in the United States. Since my decision to have surgery, I have passed three tests and the results indicate that I am totally cured. My last medical test result and the conversation I had recently with my doctor about living my life normally pushed me to write to you. Great job. Thank you!"

Filip's Story


Filip was diagnosed with prostate cancer during a routine physical examination. After researching different surgical approaches, treatments and potential secondary long-term effects, Filip decided to use the Diagnosis and Verification Treatment Plan service with PGH before determining his next steps.

After being contacted through Filip’s local provider, PGH immediately initiated a review of his case. The Diagnosis Verificationand Treatment Plan was performed by multiple specialists including the Chief of the Urology Department at a top hospital in the US. Their suggested treatment plan included minimally invasive robotic prostatectomy, the da Vinci® Surgery surgical system, which offered a quicker recovery and return to normal activities. Filip underwent his surgery at a European hospital with a successful outcome. Through PGH, Filip benefitted from having an expanded medical team to make confident and informed decisions about his course of treatment.
