Öncelikle herkese merhabalar. 18.12.2019 tarihinde ameliyat oldum. Kisa bir gecmise dönüs yaparak biseyler yazmak istiyorum bende. Ben Almanyada yasiyorum. Ameliyat olmadan önce 152 kiloydum malesef :( ama hareketli bir hayatim vardi. Kilo aldigimin farkinda bile degildim. Son zamanlarda bel agrisi ve eklem agrilari cekmeye baslamistim. Tabi bunlarin yaninda sinir bozucu mide yanmasi. Sonra karsima Saro diye bir bey cikti 😅😅 tanistik sorularimi sordum kafamdaki tüm soru isaretleri gitmisti. Ve bir kac gün icinde biletimi aldim. Ama bende söyle bir durum vardi Redbull bagimlisi bir insandim. Günlük 3 yada 4 tane Redbull icen biriydim. Bunun yani sira kola ve diger icecekler cabasiydi :) Ameliyat günü geldiginde hala kafamda deli sorular vardi!!!! Hasan Erdem hocayla hic konusmamistim. Ekibini tanimiyordum. Nasil insanlardi acaba??? Ucaktan indik ailemle hastaneye gectik. ilk günden belli ettiler kaliteli ve ilgili ekip olduklarini. Hasan hocam ve Mehmet hocam muhtesem insanlardi. Benim ismimde Hasan hep adas diye hitap ediyordu inanin sasiriyordum. Cok samimi insanlardi hepsi. Hastane muhtesem konforlu ve gercekten ilgilenen bir ekip buluyorsunuz karsinizda. Ameliyat olmadan önce belirli bir saatten sonra bisey yemiyorsunuz ve icmiyorsunuz. Ameliyat olacagim gün tekrar tartiya cikmistim 142 kiloydum :)) ameliyat oluyorsunuz ve inanin hic birsey hissetmiyorsunuz. Evet belirli bir agrili süreciniz oluyor oda normal bisey. Bugün 15.02.2020 yeni tartiya ciktim 114 kiloya düsmüsüm. Evet kisa bir sürede cok yol aldim ben. Siz neden bekliyorsunuz??? Artik Redbull dan midem bulaniyor 😅😅 kokusuna bile dayanamiyorum.

The patient was treated of herniated disk

LIV Hospital services are very much in line with and in no way inferior to the world level, believe me, because due to health problems of my family, we had to see clinics in the USA, China, South Korea, Israel. From the very first call I felt great care for me as a loved one. Many thanks to Sabina, Nigina - coordinators / translators, they did a great job, we could contact them at any time of the day and they supported the patient with all their hearts. Please note that everything here is based on Turkish, only doctors can communicate in English. It can be seen how much Turkey has advanced and is self-sufficient. I am grateful to fate that I met the professor - neurosurgeon Chagatay Ozturk. Easy to communicate, concise, it is immediately clear that the highest level specialist, after the examination, identified the problem and showed it on the MRI scan and explained what was to come. An operation was performed to remove the hernia on L5-S1 and a titanium disc was installed. The atmosphere of the team was very favorable and cozy, there was a high level of coherence and discipline. The concern was such that I did not feel any pain or heaviness, although they say that the operation was not an easy one. On the second day after the operation, I already walked and on the sixth day I was already discharged. Finally I got rid of pain and sleepless nights over the years! I recommend to everyone, wizards work here - professionals in their field! Best regards, Gaziz Kissym Kazakhstan Услуги LIV Hospital очень даже соответствуют и никак не уступают мировому уровню, поверьте мне, так как в связи с проблемами со здоровьем моей семьи нам пришлось повидать клиники США, Китая, Южной Кореи, Израиль. Уже с первого звонка я почувствовал огромную заботу ко мне как к родному человеку. Огромное спасибо Сабине, Нигине - координаторам/переводчикам, они сделали большую работу, мы могли обращаться к ним в любое время суток и они всей душой болели за пациента. Имейте ввиду, что здесь все основано на турецком языке, только врачи могут общаться на английском. Видно как сильно продвинулась Турция и самообеспечена. Благодарен судьбе, что встретил профессора - нейрохирурга Чагатай Озтюрк. Прост в общении, краток, сразу видно, что высочайшего уровня специалист, после обследования определил проблему и показал на снимке МРТ и обьяснил, что предстоит. Провели операцию по удалению грыжи на L5-S1 и установили титановый диск. Атмосфера коллектива была очень благоприятной и уютной, чувствовалась высокая слаженность и дисциплина. Забота была такая, что я не почувствовал ни боли, ни тяжести, хотя говорят, что операция была не из простых. На второй день после операции я уже ходил и на шестой день уже выписался. Наконец-то я избавился от болей и бессонных ночей за многие годы! Рекомендую всем, здесь работают волшебники - профессионалы своего дела! С уважением, Gaziz Kissym Kazakhstan

The patient was treated of diabetes type 2

Liv hospital is a terrible clinic! We were very disappointed, it’s good that they went to the memorial on time from there and didn’t perform the operation on my grandfather, conducted an examination in another clinic where they began to fully deal with him and sort out his problem with a council of doctors, in Livonia we just shouted that the situation was an emergency and it was necessary urgently to take action and just wanted to put on the operation the next day without looking at the tests and the like !!!! Лив хоспитал ужасная клиника! Очень разочаровались, хорошо что вовремя от туда ушли в мемориал и не сделали операцию дедушке, провели обследование в другой клинике где им начали полностью заниматься и разбирать его проблему с консилиумом врачей, в ливе же просто мы кричали о том что ситуация была чп и нужно было срочно предпринимать меры и хотели просто положить на операцию на следующий день не просмотрев анализы и тому подобное!!!!

Everything went at the highest level. In the beginning, there were inconsistencies in the organization, which were immediately resolved for the benefit of the client, that is, me. Doctor of the aphthalmologist Belma Karini, I can only recommend, golden pens! The result of the operation exceeded all expectations not only of mine, but also of the doctor. Special thanks to the translator Dinara, she will not forget anything, she will organize everything, everything is clear and harmonious with her. The clinic is new, the wards are very clean and comfortable. I would say the Chambers are more like a luxury hotel suite. Everything in the shower glistens with towels, shampoos, etc. I RECOMMEND UNIFORMALLY !!! Всё прошло на высшем уровне. В начале были несосстыковки по организации, которые моментально решались во благо клиента, то бишь меня. Врача афтальмолога Бельму Карини, могу только рекомендовать, золотые ручки! Результат операции превзошёл все ожидания не только мои, но и врача. Отдельное спасибо переводчице Динаре, ничего не забудет, всё организует, всё четко и слаженно у нее. Клиника новая, палаты очень чистые, и уютные. Я бы сказала, Палаты похожи больше на номер люкс дорогого отеля. В душе всё блестит полотенца, шампуньки и т.д. РЕКОМЕНДУЮ ОДНОЗНАЧНО!!!

The trip went well. I really liked the relationship to the patient. There is always a translator. All questions that arise are immediately answered. Helped with leaving for Ukraine during quarantine. We also want to express our gratitude to Pavel who helped organize the trip and answered hundreds of questions. Поездка прошла отлично. Очень понравилось отношения к пациенту. Есть постоянно переводчик. На все возникшие вопросы сразу дают ответы. Помогли с выездом в Украину во время карантина. Также хотим выразить благодарность Павлу который помогал организовать поездку и отвечал на сотни вопросов.

The patient was treated of breast cancer

The most basic and most important is the medical equipment for a complete high-quality diagnosis. A small minus is the very low quality of the Internet, from the wishes: the possibility of placing on the territory of a small street sports complex. The territory of the clinic, the ward, the clinic itself comply with all modern world standards. Самое основное и главное это медицинское оборудование для полной качественной диагностики .небольшой минус это очень низкое качество интернета , из пожеланий :возможность размещения на территории небольшого уличного спортивного комплекса. Территория клиники , палаты ,сама клиника соответствуют всем современным мировым стандартам.

Everything was perfect, I'm glad I found this clinic. Doctors are very qualified and very attentive, we can say that they saved the life of my father. The chamber was large for one person with a view of the surroundings. Все было отлично, я рад что нашел эту клинику. Врачи очень квалифицированы и очень внимательны, можно сказать что они спасли жизнь моему отцу. Палата была большая на одного человека с видом на окрестности.

The medical team overall was excellent! My surgeon, Dr. Umut Zereyak is awesome and indeed a nice person as well. He is very proficient with his craft and he was always making sure that I understood the plan. He truly cares for me as a patient and that’s what I definitely appreciate. During the days for which I was admitted, the nurses and other staff were so helpful and patient enough to care and to assist with my needs. Language barrier could be a challenge but all of them tried their best to communicate well. Also, the medical coordinators assisted me to the best of their ability. They are knowledgeable, very efficient and communicated really well. I have no regrets at all that this was the medical team that I chose. Highly recommended.

I’ll start from the very arrival in Istanbul: firstly, the meeting person was 40 minutes late when the airport drove us back, the driver was almost late for an hour, we barely managed to get on the plane, of course there’s a big minus, but the transfer from the hotel to the clinic and back within 3 days was provided on time, which is very good. The recommendations for the clinic are as follows: it is necessary to organize an unhindered and quick examination process. For example, we examined the whole family of 2 adults, 2 children, signed up in advance, but we spent 3 days instead of the planned 1 day and this is only a gastrointestinal examination. We give one analysis / examination, then we wait until the turn comes to another office, and so for 3 whole days. If the clinic claims to be international, then it is clear that patients will be from different parts of the world, and every day of their stay this time and money, so they need to make the process continuous for the patient. They should be “sharpened” at the reception of foreigners quickly and efficiently, this should be a separate direction in the clinic, and not between affairs. For example, I had experience in a clinic in South Korea, they sent everything to me at the hotel in advance: a questionnaire, instructions, etc. Upon arrival at the clinic, I went through all the rooms within a few hours, and then after waiting a little I got the results in Russian, which is the basis for questions to the doctor who advises you. In Medicana, some of the tests that were received at the time of the consultation with the doctor were only in Turkish, in this case, what questions can I have for the doctor? what to discuss with him? If the clinic really claims to be international, English should be a priori. I asked for them in English, but they said it would also take time. Most of the results said will be in a week, then they will translate into English. Now the problems are for me, when they will give me the results and appointments, get them in Bishkek and how then to buy medicines in Istanbul and bring them to Bishkek. For 3 days, I left almost $ 4,500 for examinations in the clinic and I believe that the quality of the services and the service do not correspond to the price. Начну с самого приезда в Стамбул: во-первых встречающий человек опоздал в аэропорт на 40 минут, когда обратно везли нас аэропорт, почти на час опоздал водитель мы еле успели на самолет, здесь конечно им большой минус, но транфер из гостиницы до клиники и обратно в течение 3-х дней предоставлялся вовремя, что есть очень хорошо. К клинике рекомендации следующие: необходимо организовать беспрепятственный и быстрый процесс обследований. Мы например обследовались всей семьей 2 взрослых, 2 детей, записались заранее, но мы потратили 3 дня вместо запланированного 1 дня и это только обследование ЖКТ. Сдаем один анализ/обследование, затем ждем пока подойдет очередь в другой кабинет и так целых 3 дня. Если клиника претендует на статус международной, то понятно, что пациенты будут с разных частей света и каждый день пребывания это время и деньги, поэтому им надо сделать процесс беспрерывным для пациента. Они должны быть "заточены" на прием иностранцев быстро и качественно, это должно быть отдельное направление в клинике, а не между делами. Например у меня был опыт в клинике Южной Кореи, они заранее все выслали мне в гостиницу: анкету, препараты инструкции и т.д. По приезду в клинику я прошла все кабинеты в течении нескольких часов, а затем подождав немного получила результаты на русском языке, что является основанием для вопросов к доктору, который тебя консультирует. В Медикана некоторые анализы, которые были получены на момент консультации с врачем были только на турецком, в этом случае, какие у меня могут быть вопросы к врачу? что с ним обсуждать? Если клиника действительно претендует на статус международной, английский язык должен быть априори. Я их просила предоставить на английском, но они сказали это тоже займет время. Большинство результатов сказали будут через неделю, затем они переведут на анг. Теперь проблемы для меня, когда они выдадут мне результаты и назначения, получить их в Бишкеке и как затем закупить лекарства в Стамбуле и привезти их в Бишкек. За 3 дня я оставила в клинике почти $4500 на обследования и я считаю, что качество услуг и сервис не соответствуют цене.

The patient was treated of ovarian cancer

Mom sent to the clinic for PET CT. Unfortunately, I could not go with her. At the airport, the coordinator Yulduz, the clinic is modern and excellent, near the Merkur hotel is also super. However, on the day of the procedure, it turned out that there is no diagnostic equipment in the clinic itself, so my mother was sent to the laboratory to the machine that the clinic was in control of, everything is fine, but Yulduz did not go with her mother, and my mother spoke on the fingers there, and after a while she phoned Yulduz by telephone for telephone translation. And so on the whole is great. Отправлял маму в клинику на ПЭТ КТ. К сожалению сам с ней не смог поехать. В аэропорту встретиа координатор Юлдуз, клиника современная и отличная, рядом отель Меркур тоже супер. Однако, в день процедуры оказалось что в самой клинике диагностического оборудования нет, поэтому маму на машине отправили в лабораторию к аппарату которым клиника совладеет, все хорошо, но Юлдуз не поехала с мамой, и мама там на пальцах изъяснялась, а через время созвонились с Юлдуз по телефону для телефонного перевода. А так в целом отлично.

Gastric banding (adjustable gastric band) is a reversible weight loss surgery that allows the patient to significantly reduce appetite and the amount of food taken, and effectively lose excess weight.

In contrast with other bariatric procedures, the stomach band is less invasive and requires less time to recover.

Who is the best candidate for an adjustable gastric band?

This procedure is intended for overweight people with a body mass index (BMI) of 35 and over. However, this operation is not suitable for people with very high body weight, because the bandage requires constant adjustment.

It is also a suitable option for people with a body mass index of 30+ suffering from serious diseases (diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, metabolic syndrome, etc.) and for those individuals who tried to lose weight with the help of diet and regular exercise, but the results were not achieved.

The gastric band is also not suitable for people under the age of 18 and over 55 or people with alcohol or drug addiction. The best weight loss option for you can be chosen only after the consultation with an experienced specialist in bariatric surgery.
