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.

It’s still too early to give a full review as the procedure hasn’t been done. But the hospital is fantastic. Dr Polat is the very best, he will sit down and talk about anything we wanted or needed. The whole staff is exceptional. More to follow.

The patient was treated of epilepsy

In general, the clinic as a clinic, a lot of people, everyone is busy. Queues The translator decided the speed of the queue. Everything is fine. They took only consultations with doctors. I can not say on it their level of professionolism, only on treatment ... In general, it’s normal. В целом клиника как клиника, много людей, все заняты. Очереди. Переводчик решал быстроту очереди. Все нормально. Брали только консультации у врачей. Не могу сказать по ней их уровень профессиолизма, только по лечению... В целом нормально.

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.

The patient was treated of astrocytoma

Hello everybody. Thanks to the Clinic for a successful operation. To the Neurosurgeon Mustafa Onaz and Professor Gohan. We are diagnosed with Brain cancer, the last stage, malignant. The tumor was twice as large. They saved my husband's life. Masha Allah. The operation was 8-9 hours. they deleted everything, I consider this a record. It was a difficult operation. Well done. At our KZ they could not remove everything that was, only a small part was removed and that's it. I bow to you. At the expense of the clinic. Service At the Highest Level. Another razzzzz Many thanks to Mustafa Onaz. We love you. A doctor from God. He needs OsKar ❤️❤️❤️ Aidana Amanshieva Всем Здравствуйте. Спасибо Клинику за успешную операцию. Именно Нейрохирургу Мустафа Оназ и Профессор Гохан. У нас диагноз Рак головного мозга, последний стадия, злокачественный. Опухоль было двое раза больше. Они спасли жизнь моего мужа. Ма ша Аллах. Операция было 8-9 часов. они все удалили, Я считаю это рекорд. Сложная операция было. Молодцы. У нас в КЗ не смогли удалить все что было, только маленькую часть убрали и все. Вам низкий поклон. На счет клиники Сервис На Высшим Уровне. Еще раззззз Огромное Спасибо Мустафа Оназу. Мы вас любим. Врач от Бога. Ему нужно ОсКар ❤️❤️❤️ Айдана Аманшиева

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.

The patient was treated of infertility

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.

The patient was treated of epilepsy

The medical team gave us the best of care and showed professionalism, and at the same time friendly. Even though the result I wanted couldn't be achieved but I really appreciate the support and care I received from Dr. Anna. Bumrungrad International hospital gave us the best of care and professional advice I must say once again. I'm still seeking medical attention for my wife's "Diffuse Cerebral Dysfunction". That's the diagnostics and results we received from Bumrungrad International hospital Bankok! Thank you!

The patient was treated of thyroid disease

The hospital is very modern in building and very organised since arrival you will have someone from the administration to assist in registration and then will take you to the clinic where your appointment is scheduled. Waiting time is reasonable, it is always expected to wait sometimes after your scheduled time to see the Doctor. In my case, I think I should have taken an appointment from first day to directly see the surgeon and not the endocrinologist. Do two days had been spent with the endocrinologist to repeat exactly the same procedure that I had completed in Bahrain, ie repeating the ultrasound which became in result exactly as a replica of the report done in Bahrain. One test was done new which was the anti thyroid plus vitamin D which I thought unnecessary. I do not know! . Any way after meeting again the endocrinologist with results of ultrasound and lab test results, she decided to refer me to the ENT surgeon who saw the ultrasound taken at Bumrungrad Hospital Nd my local hospital plus the biopsy reports and recommended operation to remove the the right thyroid node and if found being cancerous then again tho remove the left side node, A period of two weeks was advised for operation and follow up. I asked for an estimate then I was given a rough estimate for an operation which is probably three times the total cost of the operation in Bahrain, and their estimate did not cover pre operation procedure, not the admission cost , not the follow up visits changes neither the medicine. In conclusion, in my particular case I found my self to probably to be spending 8 times the cost if am going to do the same treatment I bahrain. At the end , I wish to thank the Bookimed treat for all the effort and the help I had for making the consultation happened successfully. From the bottom of my heart big THANKS to all and I wish you a good luck. Yours , Hameed Zuhair

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

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.

The patient was treated of fibrocystic breast disease

I was in Severance on May 27, 2019 at a reception by the oncologist's homolog, and on the same day mammography and ultrasound of the mammary glands were done. For the conclusion they said to come on June 5th. I want to say a big thank you to my coordinator Lydia, I went everywhere, translated, sat and waited in queues with me. Service at the highest level! Today, on June 5, I came back to the homologue and she looked at the pictures and said that all is not well worry. And in Russia, they saw a tumor from somewhere. I was also given a disc with ultrasound and momography and a conclusion in paper in English. Thank you all and thanks to bookimed.com! This is not a hoax, really help people. I wanted to share a photo of the clinic and the coordinator, but something is impossible to expose them. Была в Северанс 27 мая 2019года на приёме у момолога онколога, так же в этот же день сделали мамографию и узи молочных желёз. За заключением сказали приехать 5 июня. Хочу отдельно сказать большое спасибо моему координатору Лидии, везде ходила,переводила,сидела и ждала со мной в очередях. Обслуживание на высшем уровне! Сегодня 5 июня приехала опять к момологу и она посмотрела снимки и сказала,что всё хорошо не переживайте. А в России откуда-то опухоль увидели. Так же мне на руки дали диск с узи и момографией и заключение на бумаге на английском языке. Всем огромное спасибо и спасибо bookimed.com! Это не обман,реально помогают людям. Хотела поделиться фото клиники и координатора,но что то не получается их выставить.

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.

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 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 patient was treated of cervical cancer

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.

The patient was treated of hemorrhoids

In general, I really liked the clinic, the coordination is good. Conveniently, what you met at the airport. However, what the doctor advised after the consultation does not help. I am planning a second consultation. В целом клиника очень понравилась, координация хорошая. Удобно, то что встретили в аэропорту. Однако то, что посоветовал врач после консультации не помогает. Планирую повторную консультацию.

The patient was treated of obesity

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.

The patient was treated of arrhythmia

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.

The patient was treated of epilepsy

I came to the clinic for a consultation with a gynecologist. I was greeted by friendly and polite staff at the reception, and then I was consulted by an arach gynecologist, who told and showed my problem and the ways of its treatment in detail. It seemed that all the staff at the clinic only wanted me to get better as soon as possible .... Thank you all for your kindness and attention !!! Tatiana Chekhova. В клинику я приехала на консультацию к гинекологу. Встретили меня доброжелательные и вежливые сотрудники на ресепшене.Потом провела консультацию арач гинеколог,которая подробнейшим образом рассказала и показала мою проблему и пути её лечения. Казалось, что все сотрудники клиники только и хотят,чтобы я скорейшим образом поправилась....Спасибо всем за доброту и внимание!!! Татьяна Чехова.

The patient was treated of epilepsy

I am very grateful to the company for giving us the opportunity to meet Dr. Russi. This is a doctor with tremendous knowledge and extensive experience in the field of epilepsy. For about 6 years, my child and I have been struggling with epileptic seizures of a very complex form. Consultations were held in Kiev and could not even make a correct diagnosis; they were treated for about 4 years in Israel. A year ago, began treatment with Dr. Russi. This is a radically different approach to examination, diagnosis and treatment. A child who suffered from attacks every night - came to life !!! We have small victories and hope for a full recovery !!! Our path is very difficult, but we do not give up !!! Я очень благодарна компании за то, что она предоставила нам возможность познакомиться с доктором Русси. Это доктор с колоссальными знаниями и большим опытом в области эпилепсии. Около 6 лет мы с ребенком боремся с эпилептическими приступами очень сложной формы. В киеве собирали консилиумы и даже не могли поставить правильный диагноз, лечились около 4 лет в Израиле. Год назад начали лечение у доктора Русси. Это кардинально другой подход к обследованию, диагностике и лечению. Ребенок, который мучился от приступов каждую ночь - ожил!!! У нас есть маленькие победы и надежда на полное выздоровление!!! Наш путь очень трудный, но мы не сдаёмся!!!

Skype consultation went well. Within an hour I received answers to all questions, they certainly differ from those that we receive at home, but prof. Ferrand Montserrat is positive, generally in a good mood after consultation. They organized everything well, before the consultation they called us and helped set up Skype. Skype консультация прошла хорошо. На протяжении часа получил ответы на все вопросы, они конечно отличаются от тех, которые получаем дома, но проф. Ферран Монсеррат позитивный, в целом хорошее настроение после консультации. Организовали все хорошо, перед консультацией нам позвонили, помогли настроить Скайп.

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!

The patient was treated of breast cancer

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.

The patient was treated of leiomyosarkoma

I was advised to do a glass review, at first they turned to Germany and they did not confirm the diagnosis there, but there were doubts about the diagnosis and Israel was the third country, which turned out to be the right decision. I believe that this feature is very useful, since the diagnosis is not comic and you need to deal with the revision of the blocks. Coordinator Anastasia helped, very quickly found the people who transported our glasses, in this regard, many thanks. In general, I am very pleased with this opportunity. Мне посоветовали сделать пересмотр стекол, сначала обратились в Германию и там мне не подтвердили диагноз, но были сомнения о диагнозе и третьей страной был Израиль, что оказалось правильным решением. Я считаю, что эта возможность очень полезная, поскольку диагноз не шуточный и пересмотром блоков нужно заниматься. Координатор Анастасия помогла, очень оперативно нашла людей, которые перевезли наши стекла, в этом плане большое спасибо. В общем я очень довольна данной возможность.

What do you need to know about Gastric band?

What is the gastric band?

The gastric banding is a method of weight loss to reduce the amount of food taken by a patient. It is one of the most effective methods of treatment pathological excess weight.

Stomach band process

During the procedure, a surgeon puts the upper part of the stomach on a silicone cuff or gastric band. It narrows the stomach cavity and regulates the speed of food movement through it.

Part of the stomach above the band stretches, causing a feeling of satiety. The band size can be further regulated. The size of the band is determined individually for a particular patient.

What is the effectiveness of gastric band abroad?

Obese patients lose less excess weight after banding than after stomach bypass or sleeve resection. 20-30% of patients need re-operation in 10 years due to bandage wearing out or insufficient weight loss.

Patients with body mass index (BMI) under 40 kg/m2 can undergo the stomach banding. Features of the procedure are the following:

  • the success rate of the surgery: 100%
  • operation time: 1 hour
  • in-hospital stay: 2-4 days
  • loss of excess weight: 40-50%
  • reversibility: possible.

What are advantages of the gastric band abroad?

  • Simplicity

The operation is performed laparoscopically. It means that surgeons do not cut the abdomen during the procedure. They make 5 punctures in 0.5-1 cm of size.

The gastric band is a low traumatic operation. The risk of postoperative complications is low.

Among the possible complications are:

  1. gallstones
  2. sagging of the skin
  3. constipation
  4. diarrhea
  5. heartburn.

There is no need for rehabilitation and prolonged postoperative observation of a patient. Laparoscopic gastric banding is performed under general anesthesia.

  • Reversibility

100% is reversibility of the operation. Unlike many serious interventions, the bandage can be easily removed at any time.

  • Duration

Stomach band surgery lasts from 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Are any contraindications to weight loss band surgery?

  • diseases of the gastrointestinal tract
  • alcoholism, drug addiction
  • age of a patient is under 18 years
  • frequent or continuous intake of NSAIDs by a patient (including aspirin)
  • unwillingness or inability to follow the diet
  • allergic reactions to the bandage material
  • emotional instability or any psychological impairment of a patient.

What is the lap band cost without insurance?

Doctors determine how much is lap band surgery for each patient individually. The price depends on the patient's condition and related disease treatment. As the price is calculated in each particular case, some clinics in this listing do not represent prices for the operation. However, the lowest price of gastric band starts from $5,000.

In some cases the gastric band cost is covered by insurance. However, this and other insurance terms you should specify in your insurance agent.

Where is the best place for the gastric band abroad?

Germany

The procedure in German hospitals performed laparoscopically (by lap method). Stomach band is minimally invasive and reduces the risks of complications.

How much does lap band surgery cost? The price for the procedure in Germany is 2-4 times higher than in India, Thailand, or Turkey. The high level of healthcare development and the average price policy explain the lap band surgery cost without insurance in the country.

German specialists are among the world’s leaders in high-quality management and patients’ safety. Doctors’ reputation also influences the stomach band surgery cost.

India

India is the 3rd most obese country in the world. Due to this fact, surgeons here have vast experience and high level of qualification. Indian doctors are among the best ones specialized in gastric band abroad. They undergo international training and cooperate with their foreign colleagues.

How much does lap band surgery cost in Indian hospitals? India is one of the most affordable countries for bariatric procedures. The stomach band surgery cost in India is 3-4 times cheaper than in European and Middle East countries. The quality of the procedure is on the same level. The low costs rely on the state’s economic development and common price policy within the nation.

Thailand

Thai medical centers are among the best ones for gastric band abroad. High-quality of services, reasonable prices, and vacation are combined in Thailand. Clinics here look like the luxury resorts. That’s why over 1 million international patients choose the country for treatment.

How much does lap band surgery cost in Thai hospitals? The prices here are 35-75% lower than in Germany, Australia, Israel, the USA, etc. Doctors offer weight loss packages and programs. It helps patients to save up to 70% of their money. That’s why the stomach band surgery cost in Thai clinics is lower than in the other ones.

What does the surgery cost include?

The price of the gastric band usually involves:

  • consultation with a specialist before and after the procedure
  • the surgery itself
  • in-hospital stay.

Some hospitals include the transfer from/to an airport and meals in the stomach band surgery cost. Specify this info before choosing a clinic.

What factors do affect the price of stomach banding?

  • Location of a hospital. The gastric band cost varies in different regions due to the economic policy and average living wage. So, you will spend 3-4 times less money and save up to 75% in Asian countries like Thailand or India. The lap band price also may differ from city to city — the more significant metropolis is, the higher the cost is.
  • Surgeon's experience. High qualification of a surgeon plays an essential role to avoid unfavorable complications and side effects. Study doctors' CVs to choose a surgeon with vast experience. Highly-skilled specialists practice in the best clinics worldwide and cooperate with their international colleagues to provide the most innovative methods.
  • Presence of related diseases or complications. If you have some illnesses related to obesity, you probably will be prescribed some additional procedures that may increase the gastric band surgery cost. Moreover, in severe cases of obesity, some patients face complications after the procedure and need other surgery. This option also boosts your expenses.

How to save your money on the surgery?

  1. Choose country near your native one. Usually, flight tickets to the far places are expensive enough. If you want to cut down your expenses significantly, choose a clinic in that state where it is cheaper to get.
  2. Choose a country that provides a lower cost for the same procedure and services. The lowest lap band surgery cost is represented in Turkish clinics, where the price is 2 times lower than in Spain. You may get two gastric bands in Turkey and only one in Spain at the same price.
  3. Refuse additional services. A lot of medical facilities offer extra assistance. For example, medical staff often provide patients with excursions, massages, yoga, and other services. Backing out of additional services you may save a significant amount of your money.

Where can you find the cheap gastric band?

If you are looking for the cheapest gastric band, pay your attention to Turkey. This country is among the leaders in bariatric surgery, including stomach banding procedure. The affordable lap band cost is the primary reason why thousands of patients choose Turkey for the operation.
