The doctor from the first minute caused complete confidence
Excellent clinic. Very caring and skilled doctors. Despite the fact that I went to the gastrectomy operation alone, without an accompanying person, I did not feel for a single minute without attention and care. Thanks to my wonderful translator Elmira - she has become a real support. Special thanks to my coordinator Bakhtygul - she organized everything as comfortably and professionally as possible. The recovery room is excellent. Bright, with a beautiful view. My deep gratitude to all the staff of the surgical department (floor 1) for their kindness, attention, support, care. The doctor from the first minute caused complete confidence. I think he is a true professional and a wonderful surgeon. I definitely recommend the clinic for a competent, comprehensive examination, and for the treatment of serious problems.

"THANK YOU with all my heart
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.

I am glad I chose this clinic, I recommend it to everyone
Everything was perfect. My personal driver met me at the airport and took me to the clinic in a luxury car. At the clinic I was met by the coordinator - interpreter Ismail. He helped me to get registered at the clinic and set preliminary analyses. The next day there was another coordinator - interpreter. She helped me through the remaining procedures before surgery. Many people come with an accompanying family member (mum, sister, husband) I came alone. So my coordinator sat with me in the room after surgery all day until I fully recovered, talking to me. All the days after the operation, the coordinators came several times a day to ask about my condition and my needs. All the doctors are very nice and attentive. All the staff, nurses, orderlies and other clinic staff are all very caring and nice. The ward is large and spacious. It has a toilet and a shower. There is a cupboard for personal belongings and a TV set. Meals are provided several times a day. The menu differs depending on the operation and some people can make their own diet. I am glad I chose this clinic, I recommend it to everyone. MANY THANKS TO DR ALIATIN AND MY COORDINATORS MRS BURCIN, MRS IZMAIL AND MRS OLENA.
Everything was so good, I can't even choose one thing to praise. Beautiful ward, the best staff.

They very much prioritise the patients health as all hospitals should but with the horror stories you hear in the media about health tourism is hard to find a hospital to trust, but lokman hekim is one that I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone and I think I picked the right place to have my gastric sleeve
I had an amazing experience with this hospital. The hospital itself was pristinely clean and the room I was given was luxurious and private. From all my pre op testing to after my surgery, everything flowed and was done so smoothly. The attention and care I got from the nurses post op put me at ease and made me feel so safe.

AMAZING overall experience, I would recommend 10/10
I had a great experience with dr. Kaplan, he works with care and treats his patience with an utmost care, answering all questions and providing clarity when needed. The coordinator Madina was absolutely lovely, helping us out throughout the entire process making sure that we have everything we need, making this whole process stress free. The nutrition specialist Ece was very helpful not just with providing the plan, adjusting my diet and answering all my questions medically (nutritionally speaking) but she went out of her way to provide comfort to my mother that was accompanying me on this medical journey, which was immeasurably sweet and thoughtful. AMAZING overall experience, I would recommend 10/10.

Everything was brilliant with the consultant and his team
Everything was brilliant with the consultant and his team, the hospital ward staff were good apart from one nurse that was on shift and was quite rude. All the transfers were good until we needed to get to the airport and the driver was stuck somewhere and we ended up paying. 1 500 tl to get us to the airport. Our interpreter was brilliant and we had a laugh with her. I wasn’t expecting to pay out nearly £600.00 extra with having to buy all medicines and medication and protein powder. This was a shock to me as nobody had told me about this. So overall my experience was really good and the operation went really well, just lacking in a bit of after care and additional add ons.
About Bookimed service
My Bookimed representative Gulshirin Beshimova was excellent, if I neede her I only had to message her and she would reply as soon as she could. She even came to see me while we was sitting in the waiting room after being discharged. Thank You.

Very god and experienced surgeon, I recommend him to everyone who needs bariatric surgery. Unfortunately I can’t say the same about the hospital . The hospital was a big disappointment. Despite nurse Berna it was a big problem to get competent medical care. The staff do not speak English, that is worsening the situation.Very low level of medical qualifications of the nurses . No help from caregivers. I kindly recommend to the surgeon to choose another hospital for the future.

FAQ about Weight Loss Surgery in Turkey

What do you benefit of obesity surgery in Turkey?

Obesity surgery in Turkey is an efficient option to order dietary habits, stabilize weight, and improve health conditions related to diabetes and heart diseases. While operating, a surgeon removes a part of the stomach, so a patient cannot eat big portions of food.

According to the report, about 16,000 bariatric surgeries were performed in Turkey annually. Turkish bariatric surgery clinics offer such benefits for international patients:

  • Cut prices. The cost for obesity surgery in Turkey is pretty affordable — $3,500-$6,500 on average instead of $15,000-$18,000 for the same procedures in the USA or the UK.
  • No extra charges. The primary advantage of having weight loss surgery in Turkey is package procedure cost. It means that the price covers not only for obesity surgery but also for accommodation (post-op stay in the hospital and a hotel), transfer (a driver meets at the airport, delivers to a hotel/clinic and back), interpreting service (every patient is accompanied with an interpreter speaking their languages)
  • Board-certified doctors. Turkey is a country offering affordable bariatric surgery but without quality loss. Experienced surgeons who practice overseas, participate in international conferences, perform obesity operations. Typically, clinics that serve inbound patients, have at least 7-10 years of experience.

Is weight loss surgery in Turkey safe?

Surgeons, who practice in licensed Turkish clinics, perform weight loss surgery according to strict international standards. Most local medical facilities serving inbound patients have accreditation from ISO, JCI that confirm a high level of healthcare.

Hospitals in Turkey are new, typically look like luxury 5-stars hotels equipped with cutting-edge medical technologies and devices, produced in the USA or Europe.

So, getting bariatric surgery in Turkey is safe. However, you need to comply with the term to pick only certified and licensed clinics.

How to choose the best clinic for bariatric surgery in Turkey?

The keystone to successful weight loss surgery outcome is the right choice of a medical center. Follow these tips to book the best one:
