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.

Hello! In both clinics in both Antalya and Istanbul (Asel, Nino) there were super coordinators. But, giving a tidy sum, I left with what I arrived. Without an accurate diagnosis and any solution to my problem. The doctor’s appointment $ 120-160, lasts about 5 minutes! And this is at best. Results and recommendations are issued in Turkish, and not in English. Здравствуйте! В обеих клиниках и в Анталии и в Стамбуле ( Аселя, Нино) были супер координаторы. Но, отдав кругленькую сумму, я уехала с чем приехала. Без точного диагноза и какого либо решения моей проблемы. Прием врача 120-160$, длится около 5 мин! И это в лучшем случае. Результаты и рекомендации выдаются на турецком, а не хртя бы на англ языке.

I liked the clinic very much, my spouse and I spent the night there, we were fed. the translator was always with us, she resolved many issues with hospitalization, was constantly in touch, even helped in the money issue, she personally spoke with the doctor, she was very influenced by the discount they made. Also, the clinic has a cafeteria, and you can eat and eat. The hotel is, in principle, good, if you plan to go to the clinics for a long time, if you need to walk several times a day, it is very convenient, because after the operation there was something forgotten, you need to take something in the hotel, it is literally located behind. And the breakfasts there are good and the staff is responsive, the rooms are cramped, but in the old part of the city, more terrible than a hotel is even more expensive, and this hotel cost us very cheap. Клиника очень понравилась, мы с супругом ночевали там, нас кормили. переводчик всегда была с нами, она многие вопросы решала с госпитализацией, постоянно была на связи, даже помогла в денежном вопросе, она лично переговаривала с доктором, она очень повлияла на скидку которую они сделали. Также, в клиники есть кафетерий, можно и покушать и поужинать. Гостиница, в принципе, хорошая, если планируете лечение в клиники долго, если нужно несколько раз в день ходить - очень удобно, потому, что после операции было что-то забыли, нужно что-то взять в гостинице, она буквально сзади находится. И завтраки там хорошие и персонал отзывчивый, номера тесноватые, но в старой части города, пострашнее гостиницы даже дороже, а эта гостиница нам очень дешево обошлась.

All liked it. Unlike other clinics, the translator works well here. All the time in touch. We even called her at night. The doctor took me even after the procedure. Usually in other clinics you can’t see doctors anymore. The clinic is clean and comfortable. Near a lot of cafes, hotels in 5 minutes from the clinic. The area is quiet and calm. I saw many clinics in different countries. Everywhere there are pros and cons. But there is no claim to the Memorial clinic. The doctors did everything they could. I understand my situation. And by the way the price for the treatment is acceptable. Все понравилось. В отличие от другой клиники тут переводчик хорошо работает. Все время на связи. Мы звонили ей даже ночю. Врач принимал меня даже после процедуры. Обычно в других клиниках врачей уже не видишь. Клиника чистая уютная. Рядом много кафе, отели в 5минутах от клиники. Район тихий спокойный. Я видела много клиник в разных странах. Везде есть плюсы и минусы. Но к клинике Memorial нет притензии. Врачи сделали все что смогли. Я понимаю свою ситуацию. И цена кстати за лечение приемлимая.

Good evening! In the Severance clinic itself, I liked everything. Everything is very organized. Polite clinic staff. There was one caveat. Nobody told me that preparations for a colonoscopy will be delivered to the hotel. If I hadn’t come to Severance hospital the day before, I’ve found a girl who speaks Russian. She phoned the clinic and explained that the package should wait at the hotel. A. So I would not be prepared on the appointed day. The rest I liked everything. I plan to come to you in a year. Thanks for all !! Добрый вечер! В самой клинике Северанс мне все понравилось. Очень все организовано. Вежливый персонал клиники . Был один нюанс. Мне никто не сообщил что будут доставлены препараты для колоноскопия в отель. Если бы я днём раньше не пришла в госпиталь Северанс где нашла девушку говорящую на русском языке. Она созвонилась с клиникой и объяснила что должна ждать в отеле посылочка. А. Так бы я пришла в назначенный день не подготовленная. Остальное мне все понравилось. Планирую через год к вам. Спасибо за все !!

The stay was as usual with the expectation, I can not say anything about trust, because we just had a survey. I can’t write anything about the ward since we were in the clinic where they were conducting the examination. All medicine is put on stream. But in any case, I am sure that medicine is at a high level. I went through the basic package, I was satisfied with whether or not I can not even say. Пребывание прошло как обычно с ожиданием , о доверии не могу ничего сказать так как у нас было просто обследование . О палате ничего не могу писать так как мы были в клинике где проводят обследование. Вся медицина поставлена на поток . Но в любом случае я уверена что медицина поставлена на высокой уровень. Я проходила базовый пакет довольна осталась или нет не могу даже сказать .

The patient was treated of breast cancer
star star star star star

I have breast cancer and I went through chemotherapy in Moscow. Six sessions have passed. It was very difficult to tolerate these procedures. A doctor in Kazakhstan said that this is enough, it is necessary to switch to tableted chemistry. And Moscow offered to continue doing chemotherapy. Opinions are divided. It was necessary to find a third party. I accidentally found your site on the Internet. Ekaterina Koliko wrote very quickly. The benevolence of Katyusha was immediately arranged towards her. She asked me what I would like to go to. I said that I want to go to the Severance clinic in Korea. Katyusha approved my choice. I sent all the necessary documents and Katyusha quickly redirected everything to the clinic. They began to wait for the invitation. For some reason (and for what I already knew in the clinic), there was no invitation. I am very grateful to Katyusha that she was in touch all the time, supported me, gave me hope. We arrived in Seoul in the morning, we were met by a transfer, brought to the hotel. After lunch, they were already in the clinic, I began to take tests. Constantly with me was one of the translators. Girls translators are great fellows, these are Lida, Olesya, Sofia, Tatyana, Alena. Any question could be addressed, they always prompted. They are professionals. Always with a smile, polite, with enormous patience, and most importantly, they understand that they work with a special audience, with people who did not come to rest. Someone to find out the diagnosis, and someone to do the operation. Thank you so much to the girls. The clinic was impressive. Doctors are professionals. The equipment is super. I got the opinion of a third party, it coincided with the opinion of a doctor from Kazakhstan. I was prescribed a prescription, I bought medicines at the pharmacy and started drinking on arrival home. I also want to write about Darina, who was engaged in transfer (the transfer to the clinic was very convenient and met and carried out), the selection of the hotel was also always in touch, and if I had any questions, she quickly answered them. I want to say that I am very happy for getting to know BOOKIMED, professionals really work there, and most importantly, they are not indifferent people. I am grateful to the Almighty and all who were near me. And the words of the doctor gave me inspiration and inspired great hope, for the sake of these words it was worth a long way to go. Once again, many thanks to all. У меня рак груди и я проходила химию терапию в Москве. Прошла шесть сеансов. Было очень сложно переносить эти процедуры. Врач в Казахстане сказал, что этого достаточно, надо переходить на таблетированную химию. А Москва предлагала продолжить делать химию терапию. Мнения разделились. Надо было, найти третью сторону. Я совершенно случайно в интернете нашла Ваш сайт. Написала, очень быстро откликнулась Екатерина Колико. Доброжелательность Катюши сразу расположили к ней. Она спросила мои пожелания, куда бы я хотела поехать. Я сказала, что хочу в Корею, в клинику Северанс. Катюша одобрила мой выбор. Я отправила все необходимые документы и Катюша очень быстро все перенаправила в клинику. Стали ждать приглашения. По каким то причинам( а по каким я узнала уже в клинике), приглашения не было. Я очень благодарна Катюше, что все время она была на связи, поддерживала меня, вселяла надежду. Приехали в Сеул утром, нас встретил трансфер, привезли в отель. После обеда были уже в клинике, я стала сдавать анализы. Постоянно со мной был кто то из переводчиков. Девочки переводчики большие молодцы, это Лида, Олеся, София, Татьяна, Алена. С любым вопросом можно было обратиться, они всегда подсказывали. Они профессионалы своего дела. Всегда с улыбкой, вежливые, имеющие огромное терпение, а самое главное понимающие, что работают с особой аудиторией, с людьми, которые приехали не на отдых. Кто то, чтобы узнать диагноз, а кто то чтобы сделать операцию. Огромное девочкам спасибо. Клиника впечатлила. Врачи профессионалы. Оборудование супер. Я получила мнение третьей стороны, оно совпало с мнением врача с Казахстана. Мне выписали рецепт, я там же, в аптеке приобрела лекарства и по приезду домой начало пить. Еще хочу написать о Дарине, которая занималась трансфером (трансфер при клинике, очень удобно и встретили и проводили) , подборкой отеля, тоже всегда была на связи, и если у меня возникали какие либо вопросы, она быстро на них отвечала. Я хочу сказать , что очень рада, за знакомство с BOOKIMED, там действительно работают профессионалы, а самое главное не равнодушные люди. Я благодарна Всевышнему и всем кто был со мной рядом. А слова доктора окрылили меня и вселили огромную надежду, ради этих слов стоило проделать такой большой путь. Еще раз огромное всем СПАСИБО.

Мне понравилось клинике Северанс, очень внимательные и квалифицированные врачи, знающие свое дело. Обследование моего ребенка прошли на высшем уровне, но долго , я не ожидала что обследование займет больше 2х недель. Но это не самое главное, главное мы узнали ,что нам помогут в нашем диагнозе, но наследующий год, нас даже записали к врачам на это время следующего года. Спасибо большое международному отделу при клинике Северанс, координаторам и переводчикам! Очень внимательные и доброжелательные девушки! А также огромное спасибо команде Bookimed, что помогли организовать поездку в Корею и именно в эту клинику, не зря! Были трудности, но без трудностей не бывает! И мы с сыном это выдержали, и не зря. За то мы увозим с собой нужную информацию для нас!!!

The level of the clinic is high, qualified doctors. For the second time they were vaccinated both for themselves and the child. Cons: - the indicated coordinator in Istanbul did not answer calls on the day of arrival, nor when we arrived at the clinic, did not call back, I had to explain at the reception (they speak English very weakly at the reception), - the transfer service from the clinic is not very comfortable , the drivers do not speak English, there is no child car seat, the cars are dirty, you have to wait a long time. Уровень клиники высокий, врачи квалифицированные. Уже второй раз делали прививки и себе, и ребёнку. Минусы: - указанный координатор в Стамбуле не отвечал на звонки ни в день прилета, ни когда мы прибыли в клинику, так и не перезвонил, пришлось на ресепшине объясняться (на англ на ресепшине говорят очень слабо), - услуга трансфертов от клиники не очень комфортна, водители не говорят на англ, детского автокресла нет, машины грязные, приходится ждать долго.

I've visited Memorial Sisli Hospital for the VIP check up. Luckily, I've decided to make a booking through bookimed rather than directly as the company helped me later on when I experienced some problems at the hospital. It was very easy to make an appoitment and I'd like to thank Anton for patiently helping me to navigate through different hospitals and selecting the right package. Upon my arrival in Istanbul, bookimed organized a transfer to and from hotel to the hospital though due to the traffic there was some waiting time. Contact persons from Bookimed were always ready to answer any questions and provide support. In regard to the services provided by the hospital, I am generally satisfied with the VIP check up provided. Though following the tests I was referred for additional tests and consultations not covered by the package. I arrived the next day for the results and instead of in person consultation was told by an interpreter that all is well. I was very surprised with such level of services as I was requested to pay for the consultation of a professor a day before and instead received an oral statement from an interpreter. I've asked for a consultation with the professor as has been agreed before, but was told that she has left for the day. I then demanded a refund as I did not obtain a service, i.e. consultation of a professor. The hospital then sent a nurse to tell me that the tests were ok. I was still not satisfied as I was expecting a consultation from the doctor, not the nurse or an interpreter. In addition, as the therapist a day before raised concerns for me and sent me for these additional tests, I really wanted to clarify the situation and ask questions. Unfortunately, the hospital could not provide it as apparently there were no other doctors available in this field. This whole second day was a big disappointment as it seems the hospital staff did not care about helping me once I was done with the VIP check up, they also did not try to find alternative solutions. It felt as a scam, as the day before the doctor sends you for additional tests and then you do not get anything out of these tests - not a consultation. Only after repeated demands I was given a hand written note which said the tests were ok, but it did not look as a proper test results comparable to the ones I did a day before. Considering that additional tests and consultations were not cheap, I requested a refund. It took almost the whole day to obtain a refund, the hospital could no longer provide me with an interpreter neither in Russian nor in English and I felt disappointed. The interpreters who are assigned for check up were busy with other clients and could not attend to my situation. I was left waiting for about 4 hours while the hospital management was making a decision. Finally, with many thanks to an interpreter from Memorial Bahçelievler hospital, I believe her name was Olga, the situation was resolved. Olga showed herself as a professional and a very caring specialist. I managed to obtain my refund. I also appreciate the support bookimed provided throughout the situation. Once I left, there were some other test results that I expected to obtain in the next week. Unfortunately, it again took forever to get these results back and required bookimed to follow up on several occasions with the hospital. I do appreciate Barbara's follow up with me and her following up with the hospital. Overall, I am satisfied with the Check up service, but very dissatisfied with the follow up procedure and lack of consultation. I will not choose this particular hospital for future check ups, as if you're paying you should receive service and not deal with the issues and feel like a scam.

She sent for PET / CT revision made at the Korean clinic Severance Hospital, because Severance made a very dubious short description, more like an unsubscribing. I chose Liv Hospital, assistant Bookimed Alexei and assistant Liv Hospital Lala all organized perfectly, data exchange by e-mail, payment at a reasonable price, three days and the description is ready, done well, in detail and clearly. Bookimed coordinator Aleksey Karaganov is a very caring and highly qualified specialist who helped with the consultation and discussion of the diagnosis. Отправляла на пересмотр ПЭТ/КТ, сделанный в корейской клиники Severance Hospital, поскольку Северанс сделал очень сомнительное короткое описание, больше похожее на отписку. Выбрала Лив Хоспитал, ассистент Букимеда Алексей и ассистентка Лив Хоспитал Лала все организовали отлично, обмен данными по эл.почте, оплата по разумной цене, три дня и описание готово, сделано хорошо, подробно и понятно. Координатор Bookimed Алексей Караганов очень заботливый и высококлассный специалист, помог с консультацией и обсуждением диагноза.

Hello! Just recently returned from the clinic Liv Hospital. Thanks to the professor, Dr. Oztürk was given an accurate diagnosis and a treatment plan. Very attentive staff and doctors, all at the highest level! Special thanks I want to say to the employees of Bookimed. The girls reacted very responsibly, called, clarified. It was very pleasant to work directly in the clinic with Llaala, who organized the hotel accommodation and directly supervised the entire process of my stay in the clinic. I recommend the clinic to everyone who is responsible for their health. Здравствуйте! Вот недавно вернулась из клиники Liv Hospital. Благодаря профессору, доктору Озтюрку был поставлен точный диагноз и назначен план лечения. Очень внимательный персонал и доктора, все на высшем уровне! Отдельное спасибо хочу сказать работникам Букимеда. Девочки отнеслись очень ответственно, звонили, уточняли. Очень приятно было сотрудничество непосредственно в клинике с Ллаалой, которая организовала проживание в гостинице и непосредственно курировала весь процесс моего пребывания в клинике. Рекомендую клинику всем , кто относится ответственно к своему здоровью.

My visit was not so perfect, they were not so professional as I wish. The doctor was good but we have large problems with communication and I feel how he felt uncomfortable about it but cannot do anything with it. That is why I denied to do the operation there and only have a consultation They do not know that I do not speak German but only English I want to say thank you to Lesya, her job was good.

star star star star_border star_border

Nobody there seemed to know about my appt. There were no free translators. Luckily I found a very nice lady in surgery dept who called Mrs. Spiegel and i finally got to see the head of the gastro dept.He ordered a set of blood tests and scheduled a gastroscopy for the next day. The second day, I got the gastroscopy, and then I waited for like 3hrs for the doctor who performed my gastroscopy to tell me about the results. Apparently he was on duty and there was nobody else to discuss with me.In the end he showed up and said that the blood results were incomplete and we had to wait for the results of the biopsies that were prelevated during the endoscopy.He said it would be a few days, and they will send it by mail. That was last friday.No sign up to this day..So l would have to say that it was not very well organised and if it wasn’t for the good heart of the clerk working in surgery dept.i would not had been checked at all.

They did everything normally, met normally, treated normally while in the clinic. The main thing for me now is the result, it can be observed in a month. On organizational matters, everything was fine. Все нормально сделали, нормально встретили, нормально относились во время нахождения в клинике. Главное для меня сейчас это результат, его можно будет наблюдать через месяц. По организационным вопросам все было хорошо.

The patient was treated of coxarthrosis
star star star star star_border

The only negative is that it is a general regional hospital and there is no separate building for foreign patients and because of this there is not enough necessary rest for patients after surgery. Nursing service is good, girls try, they always come to the rescue. The attending physician is also good, the only thing was the lack of translation, the translator apparently did not have enough time for all patients, he tried, but it was due to lack of time that he was not always able to get an answer to the question during time and there were times when it was not medical information in connection with the postoperative condition. The food was of average quality. A solid five for the transfer, well-received, brought back. Единственный минус это то, что это общая областная больница и нет никакого отдельного корпуса для иностранных пациентов и из-за этого не достаточно нужного покоя для пациентов после операции Обслуживание медсестер хорошее, девушки стараются, всегда приходят на помощь. Лечащий врач тоже хороший, единственное что было это недостаток перевода, переводчику, видимо, не хватает времени на всех пациентов, он старался, но именно из-за нехватки времени не всегда удалось во время получать ответ на вопрос и были моменты когда не хватало именно медицинской информации в связи с постоперационным состоянием. Питание было среднего качества. Твердая пятерка за трансфер, хорошо встретили, привезли увезли.

In general, I am satisfied with the visit. The clinic - primarily people - are good, met at the airport, taken to the clinic. The translator is wonderful, regularly visited and was always in touch. Doctors are excellent surgeons, the operation lasted only 40 minutes, everything was successful. The room is very comfortable, everything is automated. Also, given my sedentary state after the operation, the bathroom and other amenities were equipped with handles and simplified use. Advice to those who will go on a similar operation - do not take anything extra from your clothes. Bathrobe, slippers, hygiene accessories. В целом от визита я довольна. Клиника - прежде всего люди - хорошие, встретили в аэропорту, отвезли в клинику. Переводчик замечательный, регулярно проведывал и всегда был на связи. Доктора отличные хирурги, операция длилась всего 40 минут, все успешно. Палата очень удобная, все автоматизированное. Так же, учитывая мое малоподвижное состояние после операции, санузел и прочие удобства оснастили ручками и упростили пользование. Совет тем, кто будет отправляться на подобную операцию - не стоит брать ничего лишнего из одежды. Халат, тапочки, гигиенические принадлжености.

The servants are worse off. The coordinator opens up tales of how everything goes and how everything is perfectly treated and my diagnosis, too. But in fact, they picked up a bad clinic because of my illness. The disease is not studied or treated in the clinic. The coordinator did not pass the disease map to the clinic. The clinic doctor was far from the diagnosis. In general, he asked me that I came here. I was shocked. Even in the blade, they didn’t take blood on the anasils. And the service is terrible. I waited for an appointment for more than 1.5 hours. The recording was tentatively 9:35. But this is a fairy tale of the coordinator. In fact, the doctor knew nothing about me in the blade. On this day, there was no contact with him all day in touch. The coordinator was Leonidas Afisidis.

I would like to thank Bukimed Service and Medipol Clinic, Istanbul, Turkey. These are true professionals, thank you, and Ukrainians also have the opportunity to receive decent medical care and hope for the best. For those who have chosen treatment for themselves in Istanbul, we can say that you will not regret it. High-level support, organization, doctors and equipment! And the prices are pleasantly surprised, they are 3-4 times lower than the prices in Israel and Europe (before that they were treated in and received further consultations in one of the Israeli clinics), the only thing you want to warn is that if you need a translator, then don't expect him to be around you 24/7. He is accompanying several patients at the same time, and also in Turkey a low percentage of English-speaking and Russian-speaking doctors and citizens. Many thanks to Catherine for her support and support! Thank you!

Contacted Bookimed for advice on a previous diagnosis of Motoneuron Disease. Coordinator Antonina Oberemko advised two clinics in Turkey: Anadolu and Medipol. Both clinics were translated and sent the results of the tests and electromyography. Doctors from both clinics, based on this data, sadly confirmed the previous diagnosis. We would like to thank Mr Antonini for his assistance in translation, communication with clinics and support!

My assessment of the clinic was only because I did not stay there, only about 20 minutes for an OSTA examination. I was expecting a full examination because I was invited to the Ichilov-Surasky clinic, but was only in two private clinics for consultations. I chose the Vital hotel exclusively because of Considerations to be close to the clinic. Thank you very much Bookimed for choosing a clinic for us for 3 months and keeping in touch with us throughout the time that we were there, but their partners who deal with us upon arrival in the country are negligent about worn and not fully perform their obyazonnosti.Im want to advise humanity, we (people with health) eat with the hope of recovery! I wish you all Health and Kindness! Моя оценка клинике только потому что я там не пребывала,всего лишь раз ито минут 20 на обследование ОСТА,Ожидала полного обследования так как была приглашена в клинику Ихилов-Сураски,но была только в двух частных клиниках на консультации.Выбирала отель Виталь исключительно из за соображений быть рядом с клиникой.Скажу спасибо огромное Bookimed за то что на протяжении 3 месяцев подбирали нам клинику и поддерживали с нами связь на протяжении всего времени что мы там находились,но их партнеры которые занимаются нами по прибытию в страну халатно относятся и не до конца выполняют свои обязонности.Им хочу посоветовать человечности,мы (люди со здоровьем)едим с надеждой о выздоровлении !Желаю всем Здоровья и Доброты!

I'm pleased now about the hospital and the treatment I got was great, everything was done very fast(blood test, etc), the hospital has new equipment and it is really great. The price is higher to compare with Europe, but it is justified. One thing that I don't like that is I have a bad connection with a doctor after my consultation and every question that I had I could provide through middle-man only that is why it was not so fust. Also, the English level of the stuff was not so good.

Hello! Thank you for organizing my mom’s treatment. The host, organizers, are professionals and have done everything possible for quick surgery and meeting with doctors. Denis and his team seem to be working around the clock. Great fellows! Doctors are awesome! Attentive and very caring. And most importantly, knowledgeable. The operation went well and we are very pleased with everything. The room was comfortable. All that is needed. The only thing is Ichilov Center - a state hospital, the attendants did not always provide the services expected from them. But our host always did everything possible to quickly eliminate certain situations. They patronized us constantly. Israel is a really high level and professionalism of doctors. We were very pleased. Здравствуйте! Спасибо за организацию лечения моей маме. Принимающая сторона- организаторы- профессионалы и сделали все возможное для быстрой операции и встречи с врачами. Денис и его команда работают кажется круглосуточно. Большие молодцы! Врачи - потрясающие! Внимательные и очень заботливые. И самое главное знающие. Операция прошла хорошо и мы очень всем довольны. Палата была комфортная. Все что нужно. Единственное - Ихилов центр - государственная больница, обслуживающий персонал не всегда предоставлял ожидающиеся от них услуги. Но наша принимающая сторона всегда делала все возможное бля быстрого устранения каких то ситуаций. Они опекали нас постоянно. Израиль - это действительно высокий уровень и профессионализм врачей. Мы остались очень довольны.

What is weight loss surgery?

Weight loss or bariatric surgery is an intervention aimed to reduce the volume of the stomach and accelerate the food movement along the gastrointestinal tract reducing the amount of food you eat. Surgical intervention is the only weight loss method that gives a long-term and guaranteed result.

Who benefits the bariatric operation?

The operation is necessary for overweight people with the body mass index (BMI) over 40 kg/m². To calculate your BMI, you need to divide your weight in kilograms twice by your height in meters. For example, your weight is 150 kg and your height is 1.7 m — BMI = 150 / 1.72 = 51.9 kg/m².

Obesity surgery is also prescribed for people with concomitant diseases — hypertension, diabetes mellitus, joint damage. In this case, the operation is carried out with a BMI of 30-35 kg/m².

After calculating your body mass index, consult with a surgeon. Only a doctor can decide if you need this procedure, choose the most effective bariatric surgery method in your particular case, answer all your questions, and predict the results after the operation.

What are the types of weight loss operations?

Sleeve gastrectomy

During the surgery, 80% of the stomach is removed. Surgeons form a tube 2-2.5 cm in diameter. Thus, the volume of the stomach and the amount of food absorbed are reduced.



Gastric bypass

During this operation, surgeons form a stomach pocket with a volume of 15-30 ml. Food from the pocket gets to the small intestine directly. As a result, patients have a sense of fullness even when taking a small amount of food.



Gastric band

In this case, bariatric doctors put the upper part of the stomach in a silicone cuff or gastric band. It narrows the stomach cavity and regulates the speed of food movement through it.



Gastric balloon

During the procedure, surgeons place an empty silicone balloon into the stomach. Then specialists fill a balloon with the physiological saline to the required volume. The operation helps to simulate a sense of fullness in the stomach.



Stomach stapling

During this surgery, metabolic specialists decrease the stomach volume and form a smaller diameter gastric tube. A part of the stomach is not removed, and the gastric wall is sewn with a multi-row suture.

  • duration of the surgery is 1-1,5 hours
  • 60% of the weight loss after the procedure
  • in-hospital stay is 2-3 days.

What are the contraindications?

Bariatric surgery is not performed for teenagers and people with alcohol or drug addiction. Other contraindications include:

  • body mass index less than 30
  • pregnancy
  • Cushing's disease
  • thyroid disorders
  • peptic or esophageal ulcer
  • inflammatory bowel disease
  • coronary artery disease
  • lung diseases
  • active cancer treatment
  • mental illness (psychosis, severe depression).

What is preoperative preparation for obesity surgery?

Before the operation, you should stick to some rules and follow the doctor’s recommendations. The most important among then are:

  • Preoperative diet — a short-term (2-6 weeks) diet before the surgery will lower your body mass index and reduce the risk of complications. The preoperative diet usually consists of foods high in protein and low in carbohydrates, plenty of water.
  • Quitting smoking — at least 6 weeks before undergoing general anesthesia, as smoking before the intervention increases the risk of postoperative complications (heart attack, stroke, thromboembolism, infection, pneumonia, and death).
  • Physical activity — in the preoperative period improves well-being, general tone, lung, and heart capacity. In addition to your daily activities (work, shopping, and cleaning), try cycling, walking, or swimming for at least half an hour a day. The healthier you will be before the operation, the faster the recovery after the operations will be.

More about the presurgical program you can find here.

What is the process of weight loss treatment?

The operation plan mainly depends on the method of obesity surgery. Each of them differs in the technique of performing. Generally, the procedure takes about 3 hours.

The hospitalization is required. Usually, the patient stays in the hospital for 2-3 days:

  • 1st day — the surgery
  • 2nd day — stay in the intensive care unit
  • 3rd day — stay in the inpatient department
  • 4th day — discharge from the hospital.

What are the risks during the surgery?

Bariatric operation is a serious surgical intervention, so has some risks:

  • bleeding
  • wound infections
  • intestinal or bowel obstruction
  • internal hernias
  • vomiting
  • ulcers
  • low blood sugar.

However, the operation is minimally invasive and the success rate of weight loss operation is 98%.

How long is the recovery period after the bariatric operation?

  • In the first 2 days after the operation, the patient can consume only liquids.
  • On the third day after the procedure, the person takes food in small portions 5-6 times a day. Gradually, the patient develops new nutritional habits.
  • Getting out of bed is allowed on the second day after the weight loss surgery. Gradually, the physical activity increases and step-by-step the patient comes back to the common lifestyle.
  • In two weeks a person can return to work if the activity is not associated with heavy physical exertion.
  • Intense physical exertions are forbidden for two months.
  • Then physical activity is required: walking at least three kilometers a day, swimming, cycling, or aerobics will help to overcome the difficulties during the recovery period and return to a full-fledged lifestyle faster.

Read more about the rehabilitation after the obesity procedure here.

How soon after weight loss surgery can you get pregnant?

If you are planning a pregnancy, postpone it for at least 18 months after the procedure. This is the time when your weight is reduced so pregnancy will be a big burden for the body.

After this period, pregnancy is usually safer than before the surgery — for both the mother and the baby. You should inform your gynecologist what type of intervention you had and if there were any complications after the procedure (blood clots, blood transfusion, etc.).

What results can you expect after obesity surgery?

During a year after the operation, a person loses up to 60-70% of excess weight. In rare cases, it takes about 1.5 years. It is important that losing weight is irreversible if the patient follows all doctor’s recommendations — the weight will go away and won’t come back. This is a major advantage of the surgical treatment of the overweight.

Besides, after the weight loss surgery, the patients also notice regress or get rid of other diseases associated with obesity — type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension (high blood pressure), cardiac pathology, hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol), arthritis, infertility.

Do you need to take vitamin or mineral supplements?

Yes, usually you need to take vitamins and minerals. Supplements provide the patient with essential nutrients needed to maintain good health. A diet that must be kept after the surgery may not always provide the full range of nutrients.

Costs of weight loss surgery procedures
