Memorial Bahçelievler Hospital: more details about the clinic

Turkey, Istanbul

Memorial Bahçelievler in Istanbul was established at the beginning of 2018. It is the 11th hospital of the largest network of medical centers in Turkey — Memorial Healthcare Group. Hospitals, which belong to this network, are famous for their achievements in cancer treatment and organ transplant. According to the statistics, the success rate of the kidney transplant is 99%, the liver — 93.5%.

Memorial Bahçelievler Hastanesi is located in Istanbul, 5 minutes by car from Istanbul Ataturk International Airport.


Advantages of Memorial Bahçelievler Hospital

  • The high level of equipment. The hospital has one of the most technologically advanced infrastructures in the world. The complete examination of the body is made on Magnetom Skyra 3T MRI for several minutes. Its specific structure allows diagnosing patients with overweight and claustrophobia. The noise level is reduced by 97% compared to the previous apparatuses, so even children feel comfortable during the examination. The clinic has Elekta Versa HD SIGNATURE — an innovative radiotherapy system. It accurately determines the location, shape, size of the tumor, the required dose of radiation, and adapts to the patient's breathing. These features make the procedure efficient and safe — only malignant cells are exposed to radiation, and the surrounding healthy tissues are protected. Elekta Versa HD SIGNATURE provides high-dose irradiation as well. Thus, the duration of the procedure is reduced by 3 times, compared to radiosurgical interventions on devices of the older generation.
  • “Green hospital” conception. Memorial Bahçelievler rooms are designed in that way to positively affect the patient's psychological condition. Only living hypoallergenic plants are used in the design.
  • Coordination of international patients. Each patient has a personal coordinator who will inform about all diagnostics and treatment steps, arrange transfer and medical interpreter services.

Memorial Urology Department

Doctors of the Department of Urology specialize in the treatment of prostate cancer, bladder, kidney and organ transplantation.

Robotic kidney transplant

Doctors provide kidney transplant using the Da Vinci robot, a high-precision surgical unit that minimizes the risks of postoperative complications. The robot has the camera, which transmits a three-dimensional image of the operated area to the surgical team. The image is 15 times scaled up so doctors can see the structures of the organ, veins in the smallest detail and perform their actions as accurately as possible. The additional benefit is the elimination of the human factor as possible shaking hands. Patient recovery after robotic transplant is much faster than after open surgery.

"Clinic definitely recommend
When they learned what was needed in the clinic, they didn’t even know where to run and whom to contact. Coordinators helped to select a clinic. They gave us a doctor. Everything went great, the doctor is a true professional.  Separately, I want to note the attitude to patients. We were met at the airport, brought to the clinic and there was already a translator waiting. Literally "by the hand" we were taken to the doctors, everyone translated. Then they provided a taxi to the hotel.   During the operation, the ward was provided for two people - for the patient and the attendant; both of them were included in the cost of the operation.   After surgery, the doctor held a consultation, making sure that you can fly back. And only then answered questions remotely that arose.  Clinic definitely recommend
