The patient was treated of esophageal cancer

The level of medical care, in the Anadolu clinic, is of course at a height. The attitude of the medical staff differs significantly from the Ukrainian specialists. Upon arrival in Turkey, I was met at the airport by representatives of the clinic. Provided free transfer to the hotel. From hotel to clinic and back every day too. The survey took a week. Everything was rechecked for the most accurate diagnosis. In the clinic I was constantly accompanied by translators. All meetings with doctors organized by the local curator Suleiman. Very responsible and tactful young man. Alyona Soyak, the coordinator from the Bookimed website, helped with the choice of the clinic, she also helped with the hotel and the flight to Turkey. Thank you very much, Alain sympathetic to my situation. Thoroughly explained everything and helped make the right choice. The work of your site is not appreciated, thank you very much. I advise everyone to contact you, they will help you. Уровень медицинского обслуживания, в клинике Анадолу, конечно на высоте. Отношение мед.персонала существенно отличается от Украинских специалистов. По прибытию в Турцию, меня в аэропорту встретили представители клиники. Обеспечили бесплатный трансфер до гостиници. От гостиници до клиники и обратно каждый день тоже. Обследование заняло неделю. Все перепроверялось для максимально точного диагноза. В клинике меня постоянно сопровождали переводчики. Все встречи с врачами организовывал местный куратор Сулейман. Очень ответственный и тактичный молодой человек. С выбором клиники помог координатор с сайта Bookimed Алена Сояк, она же и помогла с гостиницей и перелетом в Турцию. Огромное Вам спасибо, Алена с пониманием отнеслась к моей ситуации. Досконально всё объяснила и помогла сделать правильный выбор. Работа Вашего сайта не оценима, огромное Вам спасибо. Советую всем обращайтесь, Вам помогут.

The patient was treated of breast cancer

The medical team was very professional,available at a short notice, explaining the options, and ready to answer any questions. All necessary medical tests have been done quickly. The preparation for surgery, operation itself and post-surgery care were performed with utmost care and professionalism, overall hospital environment was calming, which helped to reduce the stress associated with surgery and diagnosis. It would be good to have an accurate estimate of costs in advance to make an informed decision.

I really liked the organization and completeness of the survey. The professor himself is a very nice person; he gives complete and understandable answers to all questions. I am satisfied with my visit to Germany. Мне очень понравились и организация и полнота обследования. Сам профессор очень приятный человек, на все вопросы даёт полные и понятные ответы. Визитом в Германию я довольна.

I needed to have a spinal mri in Italy, and couldn’t find any clinic that could do it. It was either a 4 month wait, clinic never called me back, or they hung up because my Italian wasn’t very good. I contacted Bookimed and within hours they responded and put me in touch with a lovely woman in Milan who got me an appointment at a private clinic in Milan in 2 days. She accompanied me throughout the appointment and translated when necessary. Something I dreaded ended up being a smooth and easy process. Thank you.

Thanksfull to bookimed for help me for my surgery in my brain they support me by one of best doctor in that section and he advised me many choices of surgery and hospital offers . I hope see them in top always they deserve 5 Stars. 😊
Vadym
После предварительного собеседования. Предоставиди выбор из несскольких клиник. Связали с представителем выбранной клиники. Дали контакты. Все дальнейшее общении и информацию получал напрямую от представителя клиники. Никаки предоплат не требовалось. Все договоренности были выполнены по заранее договоренным датам, без каких либо накладок. Договор на мед обслуживани заключался в клинике непосредственно перед госпитализацией. Спасибо сайту за грамотную оценку необходимых услуг и быстрый выход на необходимую клинику.

I had to book 3 appointments in a hospital at Istanbul for my brother and his wife, both with serious health problems. I have contacted Bookimed who had reacted immediately and put me in touch with Dr Emad Hussein. After listening to the description of the sicknesses of my relatives, Dr Hussein explained very clearly what are the medical documents to have for the day of appointment as well as all administrative steps to follow. Then he put in touch with Mrs Farah from Liv Hospital for the appointments and she has been very efficient and helpful. I do not know how to thank Dr Hussein and bookimed for the excellent service provided. Nadia

Очень и очень довольна взаимодействием с Букимед. Прошла лечение от рака молочной железы. В ноябре 2018 года летала на обследование в Стамбул, клиники Медиполь и Анадолу. Помогли с билетами, организацией поездки, всегда оставались на связи. Координатор от Букимеда имеет медицинское образование, может качественно проконсультировать по поводу клиник, врачей. Лично для меня это большой плюс. До этого я лечилась в Израиле, организовывала все своими силами и потратила несравнимо больше времени, сил и нервов. Буду работать с Букимед в будущем и рекомендовать знакомым.

Very helpful and nice people. They’re quick on response, and they give the best recommendations.

My experience with bookimad was great; the thing that I appreciate is the high sense of humanity of the staff, especially Dr Farruk Ahmed. He answer all my questions in time, he read my poor English and make me feel comfortable, such thing is so important for someone that suffer. I know they do their best to help. Thank you Dr.

Arkadaşım dün gribal şikayetlerle size gelmiş ancak siz bir sağlık kuruluşu olarak :önce insan" demek yerine "yurtdışı öykünüz var" deyip devlet hastanesine yönlendirmişsiniz. Konu hastalığın bulaşmasıysa hastaneler hasta kaynıyor bulaşacak tek hastalık bu değil, önlem bu şekilde alınmaz. O zaman diğer bulaşıcı hastalarınızı da kabul etmeyin. Kapınıza hastanenizin hasta kabul kurallarını asın da insanlar ona göre gelsinler ve insan sağlığına ne kadar değer verdiğinizi(!) bilsinler. Bu durumu kendisi şahsi olarak sağlık bakanlığına bildirecek zaten benim burdan paylaşma sebebim ise olur da benzer şikayetle gslmek isteyen olursa boşuna zahmet etmesin, kapıdan çevrilmesin. Bir sağlık kurumuna yakışmayan bu hareketinizi, özellikle ülkece seferber olmamız gereken bir dönemde kınıyorum.

As a tourist you don't know what to expect when you're out of Australia. I got some mystery illness and the way I got treated, at Sourasky Tel Aviv Medical centre was outstanding, the speed, the ease, the cheerfulness were great. I’d particularly like to mention Dr Rana Matal. If you end up there do yourself a favour and ask for her. She’s excellent.

Bumrungrad International Hospital

I've only had good experiences here. It's pricey but you can make actual appointments, for which you are generally seen on time, and the checkout process is efficient. The staff are well-trained and the bureaucratic process is well-refined. Of course, the doctors are top notch. Value added: it's a very nice hospital in aesthetic terms.

Mohammed AlAbdusalam Nov 29, 2019
Bumrungrad International Hospital

I did my full medical checkup here on Friday(with prior appointment). It was really amazing 5 stars experience and here are the positive things about this hospital -Free transportation for the patients from Bangkok international airport to the Hospital or hotels nearby. -Professional and enough staff available to help you. -Amazing ambience, clean, decorated like a 5 stars hotel!! -It took around 4 hours to complete the whole checkup including meeting the Doctor for the results (written report will get after 2 days) -If you speak Arabic, this is best place for you as they have translators and some staff knows some Arabic words. -open mini-buffet included if you take the medical checkup. Here are the only 2 negatives -This hospital prices are high compared to other hospitals in bangkok. But it worth it as you will feel at home!! Clean, helpful and always smiling and welcoming staff!! Well organized place. -It takes more waiting time at the x-ray and ultrasound, however, it is mentioned that the whole checkup takes around 4 to 6 hours. It took 4 hours. Five stars to the best hospital I have ever been!!!

Wiener Privatklinik

Great clinic! Highly professional doctors. They helped me recover from a disease that is still very poorly treated in Russia. Cozy and comfortable rooms, my family could come to visit me at any time and stay almost all day. Friendly nurses, although I hardly speak German, have always tried to help and sympathize.

Farangis Firozian Jan 30, 2020
Wiener Privatklinik

Servicepersonal plaudert lieber mit dem Portier als dass sie sich um die Gäste kümmern und sehen jede Bestellung als lästige Anfrage. Sorry wir wollten sie wirklich nicht bei ihren privaten Gesprächen stören. Wir dachten nur es wäre vielleicht nicht zuviel verlangt ein ordentliches Service zu bekommen wenn man sich auch noch dazu in einer Privatklinik befindet. Da holt man sich den Kaffee doch lieber an einem Automaten. Frustfrei.

Need help?

Medical coordinators consult you and help to make the right choice. Bookimed services are free for you and do not affect the clinic's bill.

Depending on the stage of esophageal cancer, the following treatment methods are used:

  • Ablation (radiofrequency, cryoablation, photodynamic);
  • Endoscopic submucosal resection;
  • Esophagectomy (removal of the esophagus).

Ablation for treatment of esophageal cancer is used only in case of in situ cancer when the tumor has not yet sprouted into neighboring tissues. This is also called 0 stage of cancer. At stage 1, minimally invasive procedure is also performed - submucosal resection, if the tumor does not grow into the muscle layer. In all other cases, the esophagus is removed completely. At 3 and 4 stages, neoadjuvant (before surgery) radiation therapy is performed.
