What is the level of medicine in Turkey?

Healthcare is the key development sector of the Turkish government. The Turkish authorities are convinced that care for the citizens' health should be an absolute priority of state policy and spend about 77 billion liras for healthcare annually.

As a result, 28,000 medical facilities provide excellent medical care in the country. About 50 centers have certificate of JCI (Joint Commission International), the international improver of healthcare quality and safety across the globe. The index of certificates obtained is the largest. To compare, Israel has 20 JCI-accredited facilities, and Germany — only 10 clinics of this type.

Why is Turkey trendy for medical tourism?

Turkey is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE, Jordan, and Lebanon prefer treatment in Turkey to other places.

Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. Over 1 mln international patients travel to Turkey annually. So Turkey is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.

Turkey is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 50% on services compared to European countries or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.

What hotel services are provided here?

In Turkey, hotels of different price ranges and service levels are presented. The level of Turkish hotels is comparable to hotels in Tunisia, Morocco or Egypt. Most tourists choose 4 and 5 star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults. Some hotels have their own water park, which guests can use for free. Budget travelers can afford to book an economical 3-star hotel with half board or no meals at all.

When is the best time to travel to Turkey?

The main advantage of Turkish resorts is the long beach season. On the Mediterranean coast, it starts in April and lasts until November. In the resorts of the Aegean Sea — from May to October. The most comfortable time for swimming is from mid-June to the end of October. A large influx of tourists is in July-August, when the air temperature is +38°C, and the water warms up to +27°C.

Do I need a visa?

In 2020, the Republic of Turkey has visa-free agreements with 89 states. Some foreigners are exempted from obtaining entry visas, others are required to receive an electronic visa (e-Visa), and still others must apply for a visa at Turkish missions abroad.

What documents are required to apply for a visa to Turkey for treatment?

Visas for travel to Turkey require a number of documents. The necessary papers can be submitted 90 days before the planned departure. Lists of documents includes:

  • ID card
  • confirmation of online registration and filling out the questionnaire
  • certificate of income and availability of funds ($50 per day per person)
  • insurance policy for a stay in Turkey (original and copy)
  • 2 photos (5x6)
  • visa receipt
  • booking of flight and hotel
  • medical opinion about the need for treatment.

What makes Turkey so strong in movement disorders surgery? To what can we attribute (or how would you interpret) the extraordinary success in DBS treatment?

Ali Zirh
34 years of experience

Turkey is a country that has drawn attention with its breakthroughs in both technology and medicine in recent years. Advanced technology provides great success in finding the correct location of the cells responsible for the disease in movement disorders surgery combined with more than 30 years of surgical experience with over 900 DBS surgeries and more than 1.500 movement disorders surgeries with a low risk of complications. 

In 2018, 329 DBS patients came together and achieved the Guinness World Record of "The largest number of DBS patients gathered together." Also, the leading neurostimulator manufacturer companies in the world declared Medipol as a "Center of Excellence and Training Center." These facts and the success rate in DBS patients draw the attention of international patients from some countries and increase our pride as well.

Why is plastic surgery so strong in Turkey?

Selçuk Aytaç
17 years of experience

Our doctors practice a lot. Maybe even much more than our colleagues in other countries. I think this is the reason.

Can you say a few words about yourself and your experience with Bookimed?

My name is Dr. Selçuk Aytaç. I am a plastic surgeon from Turkey with more than 20 years of experience in plastic surgery. I specialize in body reshaping, breast augmentation, breast lift, butt lift, post-bariatric surgeries. Also, I perform some facial operations. Our clinic (Estetik International - Ed.) works with Bookimed, so some of my patients come from the Bookimed platform. They are happy with the results. Our clinic invites everyone who wants to do plastic surgery.

Verified review. The patient underwent hair transplant in Adem and Havva Medical Center

I traveled from the US for the procedure. This was my first medical travel experience and my first time visiting Istanbul. I was welcomed at the airport by a friendly staff person from the clinic ( Mr. Zafer ) upon arrival and provided with transportation to my hotel. The hotel accommodations were excellent. The room was spacious and comfortable and the hotel was centrally located. The hotel staff was friendly and serviceable, and in coordination with my contact person from the clinic Maryam, upon request, even arranged for a very nice boat and land tour of the city prior to the procedure. At all times, Maryam, my contact person from the clinic, provided excellent support and kept me informed about every step of the process. After settling in nicely at the hotel and taking in a full day of touring of the wonderful city of Istanbul, I was ready for the procedure. The clinic is housed in a modern state of the art building and the staff is experienced, professional and friendly. After consulting with the medical team, the specialist made his recommendations and answered all of questions and concerns thoroughly. The procedure was completed to my satisfaction by two specialist , Dr. XXX and Dr. XXX who worked tirelessly to deliver exceptional results and the clinic staff was excellent in their after care follow up treatment and monitoring. I am very happy with my decision to have had my hair transplant procedure at Adem and Havva Medical Center for the following reasons, the quality of the work ( the actual hair transplant) was exceptional, the delivery of service was exceptional at all stages of the process and finally the cost vs. having completed the procedure in a U.S. clinic - amounts to a small fortune of savings. A big thank you to all of the wonderful people at Adem and Havva Medical Center ! You are simply the best ! With kind regards, Ernesto V. Philadelphia, PA ( USA)

Verified review. The patient underwent hair transplant in Smile Hair Clinic | Hair Transplant In Turkey

Many thanks for organizing the whole process. Consultant Katerina Korczak was very kind and patiently answered all questions. In the clinic itself, there are some inconsistencies in the process (in particular, they almost forgot to take them to the airport for the return flight), but in general, everything is also not bad. There were questions about the correctness of the choice of the hairline in the face ... but I hope for the best and I will see the result in a year. I will update the review. So far (2 weeks have passed) healing is going well. Большая благодарность за организацию всего процесса. Консультант Катерина Корчак была очень любезна и терпеливо отвечала на все вопросы.
В самой клинике есть некоторые несостыковки в процессе (в частности чуть не забыли отвезти в аэропорт на обратный вылет) но в целом тоже все неплохо.
Остались вопросы по корректности выбора линии роста волос у лица… но надеюсь на лучшее и буду смотреть результат через год. Отзыв обновлю.
Пока (прошло 2 недели) заживление идет успешно.

Verified review. in Medical Promise Hospital

I was shuffled to 3 different locations with a translator, then made to pay translator for test conducted, in cash, in the lobby of the third facility. Was not given a receipt and have received only PDF copies of the test results. I was told they would deliver a CD with image scans, but that never happened. The facility has quit communicating with me and I feel as though the entire episode was a scam.

Verified review. The patient underwent hair transplant in EsteCapelli Clinic

I was not warned that the test for hepatitis C and HIV should be taken in advance. The clinic does not check PCR, they only do a test. And if there are antibodies to hepatitis cured, you are considered contagious in them, which means that this is a different price and other doctors. I did not get what I expected for the price and did not receive the staff I expected either. Меня не предупредили о том, что анализ на гепатит с и вич нужно сдать заранее. В клинике не проверяют пцр а делают только тест. И если есть антитела к гепатиту вылеченному ты считаешься у них заразным, а значит это другая цена и другие доктора. Я не получила того чего чего ожидала по цене и того персонала которого ожидала тоже не получила.

Verified review. The patient underwent chemical peel in Estetik International

I am disappointed with my my laser treatment and also the way I was looked after by client . I got laser on my face ,neck and hands to remember my freakles . The pigmentation on my hands and neck is quiet deep but my face wasn't too bad . On a previous visit in there Bursa clinic the doctor used different lasers dependent on the pigment and location . Here the fractional was used for all parts . My face was improved in appearance but my hands and neck are not good . The laser and the application was not good . The doctor went around in straight lines as if had wrinkles but the goal was to target and break up the existing pigmentation . This was not done therefore the results are not good . It was 31 degree outside and the clinic never bothered booking me a taxi home . Patient safety should be a priority this was very disappointing ,I felt once the money was taken over they didn't care about me . Wouldn't go back again after all this drama . The picture below is my photo a week after laser on my hands ,I don't see any improvement.

Can you combine treatment in Turkey and vacation?

Yes, a lot of patients combine their vacation and treatment in Turkey. If you do not need in-hospital stay or come for diagnostics, you can order a personal guide or join a tourist group.
