Questions and answers

How can you describe the impact of DBS surgery on patients?

Ali Zirh

Medipol Mega University Hospital

It would be appropriate to describe this as "turning back the clock of the disease." When we perform Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery for a patient with a 10-years history of Parkinson's, it is possible to bring that patient back to the initial years of the disease.  We have seen patients who cannot live independently, turn in bed or eat without the help of others live independently after the surgery. Many of them can even see returning to their previous professions.

How effective is DBS for Parkinson's and tremors? What are the benefits of DBS for Parkinson's and Tremor?

Ali Zirh

Since DBS mimics the effect of high-dose medication, DBS surgery effectively stops Parkinson's patients' tremors and partially responds to the medication.

However, in patients whose tremor does not stop from the beginning despite a high dose of medication, with DBS focused on the tremor center in the brain, it is possible to stop both Parkinson's tremor and other tremors with a success rate of 85-90%.

What is the DBS surgery process?

Patients suitable for this surgery will be brought to the hospital and taken through the necessary preoperative evaluations. They will undergo DBS surgery on the second day, where the actual brain surgery part of the intervention is. The patients are awake, able to talk with us and communicate their experiences during the surgery. 

During this approximate 2.5-hour process, the medical team creates the physiological map of the brain using the Microelectrode Recording and Stimulation technique and by establishing cooperation with the patient. The surgeon places DBS electrodes by locating the brain cells responsible for the disease with an error margin of fewer than 80 microns. 

Afterward, within half an hour, when the patient is anesthetized, the surgeon places the neurostimulator in the chest area and connects it to the DSB electrodes with extension cables.  After the operation, the treating doctor provides neurostimulator programming, reduces and adjusts the patient's medications within 2-3 weeks of outpatient clinic control.

What does the success of DBS surgery depend on?

Ali Zirh

1. Proper patient selection

2. Placing DBS electrodes in the right place in the brain

3. Proper neurostimulator programming.

Items 1 and 3 require a highly educated and experienced movement disorders team. Item 2 depends on the advanced technology used and the experience of the neurosurgeon performing the surgery. Failure to define the precise location of those cells responsible for the disease will inevitably sacrifice the quality of life for the patients after surgery.

What is the level of medicine in Turkey?

Healthcare is the key development sector of the Turkish government. The Turkish authorities are convinced that care for the citizens' health should be an absolute priority of state policy and spend about 77 billion liras for healthcare annually.

As a result, 28,000 medical facilities provide excellent medical care in the country. About 50 centers have certificate of JCI (Joint Commission International), the international improver of healthcare quality and safety across the globe. The index of certificates obtained is the largest. To compare, Israel has 20 JCI-accredited facilities, and Germany — only 10 clinics of this type.

Why is Turkey trendy for medical tourism?

Turkey is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE, Jordan, and Lebanon prefer treatment in Turkey to other places.

Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. Over 1 mln international patients travel to Turkey annually. So Turkey is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.

Turkey is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 50% on services compared to European countries or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.

What hotel services are provided here?

In Turkey, hotels of different price ranges and service levels are presented. The level of Turkish hotels is comparable to hotels in Tunisia, Morocco or Egypt. Most tourists choose 4 and 5 star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults. Some hotels have their own water park, which guests can use for free. Budget travelers can afford to book an economical 3-star hotel with half board or no meals at all.

When is the best time to travel to Turkey?

The main advantage of Turkish resorts is the long beach season. On the Mediterranean coast, it starts in April and lasts until November. In the resorts of the Aegean Sea — from May to October. The most comfortable time for swimming is from mid-June to the end of October. A large influx of tourists is in July-August, when the air temperature is +38°C, and the water warms up to +27°C.

Do I need a visa?

In 2020, the Republic of Turkey has visa-free agreements with 89 states. Some foreigners are exempted from obtaining entry visas, others are required to receive an electronic visa (e-Visa), and still others must apply for a visa at Turkish missions abroad.
