Decided on surgery through using BOOKIMED. They helped me chose the right clinic & made initial contact for me. I chose Dr HE as due to extra research he is the most popular surgeon for bariatric surgery there is. I have lots of great things to say about the Emsey hospital ( upgraded at last minute when in Istanbul. But all was not possible without Bookimeds initial help. THANK YOU with all my heart.
The medical team were very responsive, helpful and informative. Best experience with a hospital medical team!
My medical team is superb ✔️✅ Everything was well planned. I'm pleased with everything and I recommend.
All personal in Dr. Obesity was very good including doctors , office contact , nutrion dr , drivers . They are respectful and cooperative people. The program for the week was implemented exactly as written to me Hospital was very good and I recommend it to be chosen The hotel was good I think He. Obesity and Dr. Hassan are 5 star clinic
The whole experience was amazing!! The doctors are very caring and attentive. Some nurses don't speak english but as long as you can use Google Translate you're good. You are sore, as expected, after the surgery but they give you plenty of painkillers. All in all this was 10/10 experience and i fully recommend everyone to go to dr. HE clinic for bariatric surgery. Update: I've added pictures of my progress below. The green dress is me at 121 kilos and the red is after 6 weeks, at 103 kilos.
I had an excellent experience in the hospital and the staff were very professional and proficient. I would recommend the service.
A very good hospital. Very friendly team. Both the nurses, Doctors, the administrators, those cleaning and the drivers. It was so great throughout our stay there. We were treated so nicely by everyone working there. I can't mention all names. But i say a big thank you to you all. Oh Dr HE, very amazing dr i have come across in my life. I want to specifically say thank you and your team for taking care of me before and after the surgery. The surgery went well. I could walk around four hours after the OP. Today, make it one week after the surgery. I am free of pain. Once again, i say thank you and God bless you all
The medical team are great, the nurses and cleaning staff are fantastic and the WhatsApp helpers (mine was Maria) are always there to help. I did look at going with another company but my final decision was to go to Dr He and I am so glad I did.
The room is not large, the sofa is very small and hard for an accompanying person to sleep very badly. The air conditioner does not work well, my husband bought a fan for me, the windows do not open at all, the screws are twisted, I have not seen this before. But the doctors and staff deserve the highest praise. The people working in the clinic are always polite and attentive. The comfort is poor. Палата не большая, диван очень маленький и жёсткий для сопровождающего очень плохо спать. Кондиционер плохо работает, муж купил вентилятор для меня, окна вообще не открываются, закручены шурупы, такого я ещё не видела. Зато врачи и персонал заслуживает высшей похвалы. Работающие в клинике люди всегда вежливы и внимательны. Комфорт оставляет желать лучшего.

Methods of obesity treatment in Dr. HE Clinic
The procedure involves stomach size reduction. It is associated with the highest lifelong comfort and the lowest complication risk. This type of surgery became the most popular bariatric surgery worldwide.
Weight loss surgeons carry out sleeve gastrectomy laparoscopically. During the procedure through four small incisions (about the size of a pea), the surgeon gets access to the abdominal cavity and removes approximately 80% of the stomach.
Sleeve gastrectomy is an option for patients with the body mass index between 35 and 40 kg/m² and an increased risk of heart diseases, diabetes, and hypertension.
The procedure is performed by the creation of a small pouch (0.5-15 mm) in the upper stomach to shrink its size. Surgically one part of the abdomen is isolated for food, but this section still produces gastric juice and enzymes.
Unlike sleeve gastrectomy, the surgeon doesn't remove any part of the stomach.
As a result, gastric bypass restricts the amount of food that can be eaten by well over 90%.
After recovery, the typical patients' results are 65-80% of excess body weight loss.
Also, doctors advise this procedure as a revision surgery after sleeve gastrectomy or gastric plication.
According to the patients' results, gastric bypass improves hyperlipidemia, essential hypertension, obstructive sleep apnea, and type 2 diabetes by over 70%.
The gastric balloon is a medical device that is placed temporarily into the stomach to reduce weight. This method is an alternative to surgical one. The stomach balloon limits the amount of food and creates a feeling of fullness.
To perform the procedure, doctors use endoscopy. The balloon in the deflated state establishes through the mouth.
The system consists of a balloon, a placement tube, and a filling system. After placing the balloon into the abdomen, it is filled with saline.
This method helps the balloon to float freely within the stomach. The surgery lasts 20-25 minutes.
The gastric balloon is designed for 6-12 months (according to its type). To remove the device, the surgeon also uses endoscopy. The surgeon pierces the balloon with a needle and removes it with a gastroscope.
After removing the balloon, the effect stays permanent. But the patient can repeat the procedure if necessary.
Gastric Botulinum Toxin injection is a method which helps to facilitate the appetite control.Botox injection is a non-surgical procedure. Doctors provide an endoscopy needle into the gastric fundus — the appetite center. It helps to stop Ghrelin hormone signals from that area, so the patient gets a feeling of prolonged fullness.The procedure takes around 20 minutes, and the amount of botox is subject to patients' needs.Stomach Botox is an option for individuals with a bodyweight index higher than 25 kg/m² and those looking for the alternative to surgical treatment. The effect of gastric Botox starts about 72 hours after the procedure and lasts around 6 monthsBefore and After
