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

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.

Neolife Clinic has a very high level of medicine. She was examined after AVM radiosurgery of the brain. Thank you Prof. Ahmet OBER, MD for the limitations, clarifications, and answers to my questions, everything was clear. Also, thanks to Ms. Rosie, who was the translator, she also arranged the transfer, the hotel, and the support throughout the survey. Everything was organized at a high level.

Verified review. The patient was treated of herniated disk in LIV Hospital

LIV Hospital services are very much in line with and in no way inferior to the world level, believe me, because due to health problems of my family, we had to see clinics in the USA, China, South Korea, Israel. From the very first call I felt great care for me as a loved one. Many thanks to Sabina, Nigina - coordinators / translators, they did a great job, we could contact them at any time of the day and they supported the patient with all their hearts. Please note that everything here is based on Turkish, only doctors can communicate in English. It can be seen how much Turkey has advanced and is self-sufficient. I am grateful to fate that I met the professor - neurosurgeon Chagatay Ozturk. Easy to communicate, concise, it is immediately clear that the highest level specialist, after the examination, identified the problem and showed it on the MRI scan and explained what was to come. An operation was performed to remove the hernia on L5-S1 and a titanium disc was installed. The atmosphere of the team was very favorable and cozy, there was a high level of coherence and discipline. The concern was such that I did not feel any pain or heaviness, although they say that the operation was not an easy one. On the second day after the operation, I already walked and on the sixth day I was already discharged. Finally I got rid of pain and sleepless nights over the years! I recommend to everyone, wizards work here - professionals in their field! Best regards, Gaziz Kissym Kazakhstan Услуги LIV Hospital очень даже соответствуют и никак не уступают мировому уровню, поверьте мне, так как в связи с проблемами со здоровьем моей семьи нам пришлось повидать клиники США, Китая, Южной Кореи, Израиль. Уже с первого звонка я почувствовал огромную заботу ко мне как к родному человеку. Огромное спасибо Сабине, Нигине - координаторам/переводчикам, они сделали большую работу, мы могли обращаться к ним в любое время суток и они всей душой болели за пациента. Имейте ввиду, что здесь все основано на турецком языке, только врачи могут общаться на английском. Видно как сильно продвинулась Турция и самообеспечена.
Благодарен судьбе, что встретил профессора - нейрохирурга Чагатай Озтюрк. Прост в общении, краток, сразу видно, что высочайшего уровня специалист, после обследования определил проблему и показал на снимке МРТ и обьяснил, что предстоит.
Провели операцию по удалению грыжи на L5-S1 и установили титановый диск.
Атмосфера коллектива была очень благоприятной и уютной, чувствовалась высокая слаженность и дисциплина. Забота была такая, что я не почувствовал ни боли, ни тяжести, хотя говорят, что операция была не из простых. На второй день после операции я уже ходил и на шестой день уже выписался. Наконец-то я избавился от болей и бессонных ночей за многие годы! Рекомендую всем, здесь работают волшебники - профессионалы своего дела!
С уважением,
Gaziz Kissym

Verified review. The patient was treated of brain tumor in Anadolu Medical Center

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.

Verified review. The patient was treated of herniated disk in LIV Hospital

Hello! Just recently returned from the clinic Liv Hospital. Thanks to the professor, Dr. Oztürk was given an accurate diagnosis and a treatment plan. Very attentive staff and doctors, all at the highest level! Special thanks I want to say to the employees of Bookimed. The girls reacted very responsibly, called, clarified. It was very pleasant to work directly in the clinic with Llaala, who organized the hotel accommodation and directly supervised the entire process of my stay in the clinic. I recommend the clinic to everyone who is responsible for their health. Здравствуйте! Вот недавно вернулась из клиники Liv Hospital. Благодаря профессору, доктору Озтюрку был поставлен точный диагноз и назначен план лечения. Очень внимательный персонал и доктора, все на высшем уровне! Отдельное спасибо хочу сказать работникам Букимеда. Девочки отнеслись очень ответственно, звонили, уточняли. Очень приятно было сотрудничество непосредственно в клинике с Ллаалой, которая организовала проживание в гостинице и непосредственно курировала весь процесс моего пребывания в клинике. Рекомендую клинику всем , кто относится ответственно к своему здоровью.

Verified review. The patient was treated of herniated disk in LIV Hospital

I'll start my review with Bookimed. Indeed, the guys helped a lot, in particular, Anton, Barbara, Nazrin. From the moment I turned to them, they tirelessly contacted me and provided all third-party support. Meeting, doctor's consultation and after. Really guys thank you! We agreed with Anton that we would go for a consultation at Liv Hospital. Special thanks to you. Now for the Liv Hospital itself. We turned to this hospital with an MRI scan - signs of osteochondrosis of the thoracic spine. The central protrusion of the VTh3 - VTh4 disk and vertebral bodies with marginal suspensions, the height of the vertebral bodies is preserved. End plates of vertebral bodies with clear, even contours. In the vertebral bodies Th2 (10mm), Th5 (10mm), Th10 (23mm), Th11 (3mm) and L1 (5mm), round sections with hyper-intense T1 and T2 HI signal characteristics (hemangiomas) are determined. We were prescribed a doctor Chagatai Ozturk. From acquaintances, from reviews and after talking with the doctor, I realized that the doctor is quite a professional in his field. Pros: 1. Modern hospital 2. Attention to the patient is good. 3. Amiable doctor 4. Well done consultants. Cons: 1. Very, well, very expensive treatment in relation to other hospitals in Turkey. For example, Memorial, Azhibadem, Medicana 2. Careful attention to the patient is a maximum of 10-15 minutes. After this time has passed, it seems that the doctor has lost interest in you and begins to engage in others on his computer. (at least I noticed this in relation to us) 3. Does not give other variations of the treatment although this could be given. Since having looked at our MRI remotely, Liv hospital sent us an invoice, we expected that after a live examination, the doctor would offer us other treatment options. 4. The doctor is very honest with the patient. He directly told us that after the operation does not guarantee that we will return to our previous health and will feel like an 18 year old healthy person. I do not know how much this psychologically affects the patient. For example, it negatively affected us or not. 5. We were offered to have an operation the amount of which amounted to $ 23,000 plus treatment and stay in Turkey for 15 days would cost us all this about $ 30,000. For this amount we were offered in Israel and Germany, and in India 3 times cheaper. We asked for a breakdown of this amount, which is included here. Unfortunately, they said they could not give it. I could not understand why. Then we asked to give us a price for hemorrhage vertebroplasty, after a two-day wait they said $ 7,000, although other hospitals asked for $ 3,000- $ 3,500 for vertebroplasty, and after they found out that we would only do vertebroplasty, and we won’t do the spinal surgery, interest our person at the hospital completely disappeared and they did not contact us even though we were there about 10 days after consulting with them. So the next day we went to several other hospitals in Turkey and stayed at the Sisli Momorial Hospital. I want to note that the Memorial is no different from Liv Hospital in terms of modernity and attention to the patient. Doctors are very kind prices are acceptable, the neurosurgeon in whom we were an expert in their field listened without being lazy. We were able to ask him all the questions we were interested in, both during the consultation and after treatment, and he was in contact with us all the time before and after the radio frequency denervation that we had with him. Something like this. All health and goodness Начну свой с отзыв с Bookimed. Действительно ребята очень помогли, в частности, Антон, Варвара, Назрин. С момента моего обращения к ним они неустанно связывались со мной и оказывали все стороннюю поддержку. Встреча, консультацию врача и после. Действительно ребята вам спасибо!
Мы договорились с Антоном что пойдем на консультацию в Liv Hospital. Отдельное Вам спасибо.

Теперь что касается самой больницы Liv Hospital.
Мы обратились к этой больнице с заключением МРТ – признаки остеохондроза грудного отдела позвоночника. Центральная протрузия диска VTh3 – VTh4 и Тела позвонков с краевыми приострениями, высота тел позвонков сохранена. Замыкательные пластинки тел позвонков с четкими ровными контурами. В телах позвонков Th2 (10mm), Th5 (10mm), Th10 (23mm), Th11 (3mm) и L1 (5mm) определяются округлой формы участки с гиперинтенсивными на Т1 и Т2 ВИ сигнальными характеристиками (гемангиомы). Нам назначили врача Чагатай Озтурк. От знакомых, по отзывам и после общения с врачом я понял, что врач довольно-таки профессионал своего дела.

Плюсы:
1. Современная больница
2. Внимание пациенту хорошее.
3. Врач любезный
4. Консультанты молодцы.

Минусы:
1. Очень, ну очень дорогое лечение по отношению к другим больницам Турции. Например, Мемориал, Ажибадем, Медикана
2. Тщательное внимание пациенту максимум 10-15 минут. После истечения этого времени такое ощущение что у врача пропадает интерес к вам и начинает заниматься другим в своем компьютере. (по крайней мере я заметил это по отношению к нам)
3. Не дает другие вариации лечения хотя такое можно было дать. Так как посмотрев удаленно наши МРТ Liv hospital выслала нам счет, мы ожидали что после живого осмотра врач нам будет предлагать другие варианты лечения.
4. Врач очень честен с пациентом. Нам он на прямую сказал, что после операции не гарантирует что мы вернем прежнее здоровье и будем чувствовать себя как 18 летний здоровый человек. Не знаю на сколько это психологически влияет на пациента. Например, на нас это повлияло отрицательно к сожалению или нет.
5. Нам предложили сделать операцию сумма которой составила 23000 $ плюс сюда лечение и нахождение в Турции в течении 15 дней обошлось бы нам все это около 30000$. За эту сумму нам предложили в Израиле и в Германии, а в Индии в 3 раза дешевле. Мы попросили сделать расшифровку этой суммы, что входит сюда. К сожалению, они сказали, что не смогут этого дать. Я не смог понять почему. Потом мы попросили дать нам цену на вертеблопластику гемангионмы, после двухдневного ожидания сказали 7000$, хотя другие больницы за вертеблопластику просили 3000-3500$ и после того как они узнали что мы будем делать только вертеблопластику, а саму операцию на позвоночник не будем делать, интерес к нашей персоне у больницы совсем пропал и они не связывались уже с нами хотя мы находились там около 10 дней после консультации с ними.

Таким образом мы на следующий же день пошли в несколько других больниц Турции и остановились в Момориал Хоспитал Шишли. Хочу отметить, что Мемориал ничем не отличается от Liv Hospital по современности и по вниманию к пациенту. Врачи очень даже любезные цены приемлемые, нейрохирург у которого мы были специалист своего дела выслушал не ленясь. Мы смогли задать ему все интересующие нас вопросы как во время консультации так и после лечения, и он все время был с нами в контакте до и после радиочастотной денервации которую мы у него сделали. Как-то так.

Всем здоровья и добра

Verified review. The patient was treated of pituitary adenoma in LIV Hospital

The Liv Hospital Clinic confused my diagnosis. Within two hours, I thought I had cancer.  I immediately wrote to them, the answer came in two and a half hours, as they had no time to double-check. During all this time, my family and I went crazy with horror. Now they wrote to me that the translators were wrong. But pituitary adenoma is spelled the same in all languages. A malignant formation of the parotid gland is a completely different diagnosis. Клиника Лив хоспитал перепутала мой диагноз. В течении двух часов я думала, что у меня рак.
Я сразу им написала, ответ пришёл через два с половиной часа, так как им было некогда перепроверить. В течении всего этого времени я и моя семья сходили с ума от ужаса. Сейчас они мне написали, что это переводчики ошиблись. Но аденома гипофиза на всех языках пишется одинаково. А злокачественное образование околоушной железы - это совершенно другой диагноз.

Verified review. The patient was treated of severe postpartum injury in Memorial Şişli Hospital

The clinic is beautiful, but not for ordinary people. I can say about the doctors of the clinic that ordinary doctors, like everywhere else, are not interested in patients, and money is not interested. Those who are interested in patients are coordinators, doctors are organized, they went to Istanbul for rehabilitation, only Alexander helped us, thanks to him a lot. It is a great desire that the doctors of the clinic also work as the coordinator doctors work, consult with them before you go. Клиника красивая, но не для простых людей, о врачах клиники могу сказать, что обычные врачи как и везде, не заинтересованы в пациентах, качка денег и все. Кто заинтересован в пациентах, так это врачи координаторы, организованы, ездили в Стамбул на реабилитацию, только Александр нам помог, ему огромное спасибо. Огромное желание, чтоб и врачи клиники работали как работают врачи координаторы, советуйтесь с ними прежде чем ехать.

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 states need a visa for treatment in Turkey and what countries can cross the border free and easy read here.

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
