Questions and answers

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
Istanbul , Turkey
Medipol Mega University Hospital

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

Estetik International

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 rhinoplasty (nose job) in Dr. Mehmet Emre Dinc Rhinoplasty Center

I am very pleased :) Bookimed coordinator Ekaterina was always in touch, helped and answered as soon as possible. Very polite and pleasant to talk to. I recommend Dr. Dinch's clinic to everyone. The result exceeded all expectations!) The doctor is very friendly, he will honestly tell you what result you can expect. Modeling does not do 3D, but it will show everything in the photo and tell you in detail. Note to future patients - the nurses in the clinic practically do not speak English, a telephone with a working Internet at hand is extremely necessary) Очень довольна:)
Координатор Bookimed Екатерина всегда была на связи, помогала и отвечала в кратчайшие сроки. Очень вежливая и приятная в общении.
Всем рекомендую клинику доктора Динча. Результат превзошел все ожидания!) Доктор очень приветливый, честно расскажет какого результата можно ожидать. 3д моделирование не делает, но все покажет на фото и подробно расскажет.
На заметку будущим пациентам - медсестры в клинике практически не владеют английским, телефон с работающим интернетом под рукой крайне необходим)

Verified review. The patient underwent breast implants with breast lift in Istanbul Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center

First I was a bit skeptical of Bookimed as I’ve never used or heard of their services. I must say they were very professional, answered all the questions I’ve had, and there were many and everything they said would happen happen. Yasin was my medical coordinator and everything that I’d read about him in the reviews were ALL true. He’s friendly, accessible and answered all my questions promptly. My surgeon was Dr Gurhan Ozcan and I can’t say enough about what an AWESOME doctor he truly is. My daughter who accompanied me on the trip, and I had a lot of questions for him and being a professor, he answered each and every questions in my pre-operation as well as post operation visit. All the staff, from driver who picked me up, the anaesthesiologist to the person who brought my food, to the nurses, cleaning staff were simply amazing and I HIGHLY recommend Bookimed, Istanbul Aesthetics Clinic, Yasin and the team. I had a breast lift and tummy tuck (pics enclosed) and I did not have the intense pain that I’ve read about online. Don’t get me wrong, I had very painful moments but the nurses were there to give me pain relief whenever I needed it. Even after leaving the clinic, Yasin sent a car for me in order to get a “shot” for pain. Bravo to the entire team

Verified review. The patient was treated of alopecia in Dr. Soho Clinic

I hesitated when choosing a clinic: On the one hand, there was a clinic with a large number of reviews, but a template proposal, where it seemed that my name was entered into a standard form. On the other was Dr. Soho, a new clinic, no reviews, but with a good price and a detailed analysis of my case with the presumptive diagnosis and the number of grafts. Although reliability and feedback are very important for such a choice, my doubts disappeared during personal communication with my coordinator from the clinic - Anastasia. I made a list of questions, told about my doubts. Anastasia did her best to give me information about the doctor, clinic and other information that convinced me to choose them. In general, I had the opportunity to compare the communication of different clinics, and in this Anastasia was noticeably distinguished by empathy, sincere interest and a desire to help. About the process itself. Everything went as promised: 1. All transfers from the airport, to the hotel and clinic were organized for me by good transport. 2. The operation itself went well. The doctor consulted me, answered all the questions, and during the operation itself I felt the care of the staff and the support of Anastasia 3. You are provided with everything you need during rehabilitation - medicines, a pillow, consultations. the hotel (by the way, quite good) has a restaurant where you can have lunch and dinner regularly. This is my first experience of such an operation, I have nothing to compare with. Also, it is still difficult to talk about objective results - everything will be good or bad in the end. But at the same time, I can share what I saw - the clinic fulfills all the obligations it undertakes and the staff treats you very well. Recommend! :) Also thanks to Maria, Bookimed coordinator, for answering all my questions and helping me quickly choose a clinic. Я колебался при выборе клиники:
С одной стороны была клиника с большим количеством отзывов, но шаблонным предложением, где показалось, что в стандартную форму вписали моё имя.

С другой была Dr. Soho, новая клиника, без отзывов, но с хорошей ценой и детально разобранным моим случаем с предполагаемым диагнозом и количеством графтов.

Хотя надёжность и отзывы это очень важно для такого выбора, но мои сомнения ушли во время личного общения с моим координатором от клиники — Анастасией.

Я составил список вопросов, рассказал о своих сомнениях.
Анастасия сделала максимум, чтобы дать мне информацию о докторе, клинике и другую информацию, которая убедила выбрать их.

В целом у меня была возможность сравнить коммуникацию разных клиник и в этом Анастасия заметно отличалась эмпатией, искренней заинтересованностью и желанием помочь.

По поводу самого процесса.

Тут все прошло, как обещали:

1. Мне организовывали все перемещения из аэропорта, в отель и клинику на хорошем транспорте.
2. Сама операция прошла хорошо. Меня проконсультировал врач, ответил на все вопросы и во время самой операции чувствовалась и забота персонала и поддержка Анастасии
3. Тебя обеспечивают всем, что нужно во время реабилитации - лекарства, подушка, консультации
4. Чтобы не нужно было никуда далеко ходить за едой, в отеле (кстати, вполне неплохом) есть ресторан, где можно регулярно обедать и ужинать

Это мой первый опыт такой операции, мне особо не с чем сравнить.
Также пока сложно говорить об объективных результатах — хорошо или плохо всё будет в итоге.

Но при этом могу поделиться тем, что я видел — клиника выполняет все обязательства, которые берёт на себя и персонал очень хорошо к тебе относится.
Рекомендую! :)

Также спасибо Марие, координатору от Букимед, что ответила на все мои вопросы и помогла мне быстро выбрать клинику.

Verified review. The patient underwent abdominal liposuction in Estetik International

My personal experience Tsalkina Galina I live in Germany. I had a vital operation. Due to the high risks associated with age (85 years) in clinics in Germany, including paid ones, I was refused. I applied to Lithuania, Czech Republic, Russia. The result is the same. I found out about Bookimed by chance on the Internet. The Haiane Kompaniiets coordinator called me immediately. Finding clinics was not easy. Only 2 clinics in Europe agreed to a preliminary consultation, and the cost of the operation itself was off the charts. The coordinator did an incredible job in search and found a clinic in Turkey, in Bursa, at an affordable price. Then another coordinator, Ekaterina Chalysneva, was connected to me, who sent all the tests, doctors' opinions to the clinic, and agreed on the date of the operation. They met me at the airport, brilliantly performed the operation and escorted me back to the plane. Everything was done so smoothly and efficiently that I never cease to be surprised. The coordinators I have named are so caring people that they learned about the results of the operation and congratulated me on the success. I am grateful to them and will never forget. This is the merit of Bookimed, because such people work there. Advantages: There are so many of them that you cannot list them all. Disadvantages: they simply do not exist Мой личный опыт
Я живу в Германии. Мне была жизненно необходимая операция. Из-за больших рисков в связи с возрастом ( 85 лет) в клиниках Германии, и платных в том числе, я получила отказ. Я обращалась в Литву, Чехию, Россию. Результат тот же. Случайно в Интернете я узнала о Bookimed. Мне сразу же позвонила координатор Haiane Kompaniiets. Поиск клиник был нелегким. Только 2 клиники в Европе соглашались на предварительную консультацию, а стоимость самой операции зашкаливала. Координатор проделала неимоверную работу в поисках и нашла клинику в Турции, в г. Бурса, при этом с приемлимой ценой. Далее ко мне подсоединили другого координатора Екатерину Chalysneva, которая передавала в клинику все анализы, заключения врачей, согласовывала дату операции. Меня встречали в аэропорте, блестяще сделали операцию и сопровождали до самого самолёта обратно. Всё было сделано так слаженно и оперативно, что я не перестаю удивляться. Названные мною координаторы настолько неравнодушные люди, что узнавали о результатах операции и поздравили меня с успехом. Я им благодарна и никогда не забуду. Это заслуга Bookimed, потому что там работают такие люди.
Их так много, что всех не перечислишь.
Недостатки: их просто нет

Verified review. in Memorial Bahçelievler Hospital

This is my third visit to Memorial, and this time I am unpleasantly surprised by the organization and quality of services. In order: 1. Meeting at the airport: a leaflet with an indication of the person who meets “Memorial” was placed on the airport post, none of the Memorial employees got in touch, and the wait for the car took more than 40 minutes. 2. On the day of the examination, delivery from the hotel to the clinic was not organized. The day before, there was an agreement that the car would arrive at 9:00, went out in advance and waited 25 minutes, after which they contacted the manager, who explained the absence of the car with a significant workload and offered to call a taxi and come by themselves. As a result, we arrived at the Memorial at almost 10:00. 3. I didn’t like the quality and attitude of the staff during the survey: 3.1. at the reception at the mammologist, my wife stood undressed to the waist, and the nurse invited the male translator to enter the office without warning (!!!!!!). 3.2. At the appointment with the urologist in the office without my permission, there were two more people, in addition to the doctor and the translator !!!! All the doctor's recommendations were superficial: not to hypothermia, regular sex and an active lifestyle. Was that why I went to the Memorial ??? Doctors in Russia told me this! 3.3. There was a feeling that the entire examination for 1440 euros, for information, for 4 people, boiled down to recommendations to undergo additional treatment with them, for example: 3.3.1. according to the analyzes of the gynecologist, an infection was detected and it was proposed to hand over an extended urine test for 416 lire for a surcharge. The analysis was submitted, in the end, no one reported the result of the analysis, until we ourselves began to ask questions. When the manager realized that we would not come for a subsequent paid visit, the answer was that the analysis was in order. 3.3.2. the ophthalmologist strongly recommended that my mother have an operation at his memorial, offering a recording. 4. In addition to the organization: 4.1. For the whole day, we could not go through all the paid doctors (bone mass for women and a therapist), despite the fact that we refused to be examined by a dentist. We were offered to come the next day for an additional examination. Only on urgent request, we were received by a therapist from another department. Conclusion: I categorically do not recommend the memorial for examination. With a price / quality ratio, it does not stand up to scrutiny. Приезжаю в Мемориал уже третий раз, неприятно в этот раз удивлён организацией и качеством услуг. По порядку:
1. Встреча в аэропорту: листок с указанием
встречающего «Мемориал» разместили на столбе аэропорта, никто из работников Мемориала не выходили на связь, ожидание машины составило более 40 минут.
2. В день прохождения обследования не была организована доставка от гостиницы до клиники. Накануне была договорённость о том, что машина приедет в 9:00, вышли заранее и прождали 25 минут, после чего сами связались с менеджером, который объяснил отсутствие машины значительной загруженностью и предложил самим вызвать такси и приехать. В итоге приехали в Мемориал почти в 10:00.
3. Не понравилось качество и отношение персонала при обследовании:
3.1. на приеме у маммолога моя жена стояла раздетая по пояс, а медсестра пригласила переводчика-мужчину пройти в кабинет не предупредив (!!!!!!).
3.2. При приеме у уролога в кабинете без моего разрешения присутствовали, кроме врача и переводчика, ещё два человека!!!! Все рекомендации врача носили поверхностный характер: не переохлаждаться, регулярный секс и подвижный образ жизни. Разве за этим я ездил в Мемориал??? Это мне говорили врачи в России!
3.3. Сложилось ощущение, что весь осмотр за 1440 евро, для сведения, за 4 человек, сводился к рекомендациям пройти у них дополнительное лечение, например:
3.3.1. по анализам у гинеколога была выявлена инфекция и предложено было сдать за доплату расширенный анализ мочи за 416 лир. Анализ был сдан, в итоге по результату анализа никто не сообщил, пока мы сами не начали задавать вопросы. Когда менеджер понял, что мы не приедем на последующее платное посещение - был дар ответ, что анализ в порядке.
3.3.2. маме настоятельно офтальмолог рекомендовал сделать операцию у него в мемориал, предлагая запись.
4. Дополнительно к организации:
4.1. За целый день мы не смогли пройти всех оплаченных врачей (масса костей для женщин и терапевт), при том, что мы отказались от осмотра стоматологом. Нам предложили приехать на следующий день для дообследования. Только по настоятельному требованию нас принял терапевт из другого отделения.
Вывод: Мемориал для обследования категорически не рекомендую. При соотношении цена/качество не выдерживает никакой критики.

Hello. The clinic is very good, I am very satisfied. The only drawback is that the translator is not always there. The staff knows their job perfectly well. Здравствуйте. Клиника очень хорошая, я очень довольна. В начале все так и было. Из за минимальной информации , так как переводчик не всегда рядом, замершие эмбрионы вызвали шок. От которого я не могу оклематся.

Verified review. in Medipol Mega University Hospital

In addition to the translator Maksut who was provided, I did not like ANYTHING! The analyzes that came out in 47 thousand, just a general analysis of urine, blood, ultrasound. I thought it was normal for Turkey to find out that it was a waste of money! Neurologist consultation $ 200, but in fact nothing sensible was said .How a fool provided those analyzes, and the diagnosis that was provided in Russia. The doctor just confirmed it, and did not say anything. No information special. And this is me about the Nephrologist. you already take a taxi at the specified time at the consultation, and you cancel there. And there, for 2 days in a row .70 thousand was thrown into the wind simply! And I am very sorry! Кроме переводчика Максута который предоставили ,не понравилось НИЧЕГО!Анализы которые вышли в 47 тыс ,просто общий анализ мочи ,крови ,узи .Я думала для Турции это нормально выяснилось что пустая трата денег!Невролога консультация 200 $ ,а по сути ничего дельного не сказано.Как дура предоставила те анализы, и тот диагноз который предоставили в России .Просто врач подтвердил ,и ничего не сказал.Никакой информации особо.И это я про Нефролога.Отдельная тема это трансфер который предоставляют,во время не приезжали ,и чтобы оказаться в указаное время на консультации ты уже берёшь такси,и там отменяешь .И там 2 дня подряд .70 тыс выкинула на ветер просто ! И очень сильно жалею !

  • Prepare medical records. The selected clinic will provide you with a preliminary program of procedures with prices so that you can calculate your travel budget in advance. To develop an individual treatment program, records and test results are needed. If the proposed program suits you, we will arrange a trip, if you want to consider other options, we will search for another option for you.
  • Schedule your trip. Bookimed medical coordinator will arrange an appointment on your chosen dates.
  • Prepare documents for entry into the country. Residents of some countries need a visa to visit Turkey. Check the rules of entry in your particular case here

When can I get treatment in Turkey?

Bookimed can arrange your trip as soon as possible. Most Turkish clinics give an answer within 3-5 days, in emergency cases within 1-3 days. 

Do I need to translate documents into Turkish?

In 90% of cases, Turkish hospitals do not require translation of medical records into Turkish. If the patient has documents in other languages (not English), specialists may ask to translate them into English or Turkish.

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. So you will visit the sights of the city where you undergo procedures and get acquainted with the culture of the country.

After discharge from the clinic, you can get spa procedures to speed up your recovery period and have a good rest. Leave a request on the site to get a consultation.

If you want to combine vacation and treatment in Turkey, make sure that you have no contraindications for climate change, etc. Specify this info with your doctor.

What about accommodation during the medical trip?

Diagnostics is almost always carried out on an outpatient basis, so hospitalization is not required. The exception is the patient’s serious condition that involves medical examinations under sedation (medical sleep). 

Treatment may be conducted on both outpatient and inpatient basis. Surgery and emergency care, radiation therapy or chemo are performed on an inpatient basis when the patient needs to stay in hospital for some time. 

In case of some plastic surgeries or dental care, there is no need to stay in a clinic. However, follow-up is required after any type of therapy. So patients usually stay in hotels that offer discounts for clinic’s patients.

How much do diagnostics and treatment in Turkey cost?

According to Bookimed internal stats, the cost of diagnostic procedures and treatment in the best Turkish hospitals are 30–40% lower than in Israel, Germany or the USA. In some clinics, the cost of seeing a doctor and therapy in Turkey is even 50% cheaper than in European or American clinics without any quality loss. 

Prices of diagnosis and treatment depends on the type and number of procedures and the price policy of a particular clinic. You will receive a preliminary price calculation for your case by leaving a request on the site.
