The consultation with the doctor was easy and instilled confidence and calm
Everything is fine. There was a slight delay in the transfer upon arrival at the airport. Then they arrived promptly, the drivers were polite, the cars were clean. The hotel is a little far away, but nice, spacious room, clean. There were not enough slippers in the hotel, otherwise everything was fine, the staff was helpful. I underwent PET CT diagnostics with gallium 68, the examination was carried out perfectly. Special thanks to the coordinators of Bookimed and the clinic, and the translator. The consultation with the doctor was easy and instilled confidence and calm. It would be nice to get a translation of the conclusion in Russian or English right away.

Everything went quite well....first of all, of course, thanks to the girl Natalia Bruyaka, who was always in touch and helped solve all the questions that I had along the way...Thank you very much to her for her timely and quick help on throughout the entire period... Everything was organized well... we were met at the airport, a VIP transfer, a black Mercedes, the driver, unfortunately, I don’t remember his name - a great guy, just an ace, took him to the hotel... Everything in the hotel super, 5 stars, good finishing, excellent staff, we were accommodated on the 8th floor, with a beautiful view of the city.... The next day we arrived at the clinic... They paid there, and without delay, they invited us to the operating room... The team is excellent , young guys and girls, cheerful and relaxed, (they even sang songs during the transplant)... the transplant went quite quickly, they got it done in 5 hours, because the people know their stuff, they are all true professionals, both the doctor and the guy, who drew the hair line, and the girls who were assistants....Everything is at the highest level..The transplant itself is painless, only at the very beginning, when the painkiller was administered, it was a little painful, but it lasted about 10 minutes.. In general, I am satisfied with the transplant itself , I hope that the result will not be good, we’ll see in a year.. Then we were taken back to the hotel, and I spent that day in the room, did not go anywhere.... The next day I had a rest day, and the hotel staff organized a tour for us to the historical center of Istanbul... We had a great time there, and a day later they took me back to the clinic, showed me and washed my hair, and the ace driver took us to the airport... Bottom line: without much strain, I had a hair transplant and my wife and I had a great time in Istanbul, trying different dishes, making excursions and having the opportunity to shop... Thank you very much to those people who organize such tours and carry out such work... I am very grateful to them...

FAQ about CyberKnife in Turkey

CyberKnife is a system for quick and accurate non-surgical treatment of the brain, lung, prostate tumors. CyberKnife unit is produced by Accuray American company which regularly improves a device to make it more effective, comfortable, and safe for a patient. Nowadays, there are 4 generations of CyberKnife. M6 and VSI are the latest.

The procedure is painless and does not require the incisions. The treatment principle is based on the targeted influence of radioactive irradiation on a malignant tissue.

What diseases are treated with CyberKnife?

The system influences benign and malignant tumors in any part of the body. It is applied to treat:

  • brain pathologies (meningioma, angioma, acoustic neuroma, uveal melanoma, trigeminal neuralgia)
  • spine pathologies (meningioma, neurinoma)
  • cancer (lung, liver, kidney, prostate)
  • metastases (brain, spinal, lung, liver, kidney, prostate).

The location of the tumor affects the average cost of CyberKnife treatment.

Indications for CyberKnife therapy:

  • small tumor with clear boundaries located in the organ with dense structure (the liver, lung, brain)
  • impossibility to conduct open surgery because of hard-to-reach tumor location or patient’s health condition
  • relapse of cancer disease.

Contraindications for treatment:

  • neoplasm over 4 cm
  • an absence of clear visualization of a tumor
  • tumors of hollow organs
  • individual patients’ features.

Side effects appear rarely. Fatigue, nausea, small swelling in the area of irradiation may occur. The tissues are not damaged.

How to choose CyberKnife center?

While choosing a hospital for CyberKnife treatment, pay attention to:

  • CyberKnife modification. Most hospitals are equipped with CyberKnife M6 or VSI. M6 is the newest modification, has higher accuracy, adapts to a patient breath and movement during irradiation. VSI is a previous model of CyberKnife M6; it also influences a tumor accurately but is less adaptive. So if you need the treatment with the latest CyberKnife M6, chose hospitals where it is used. Pay attention that the price of treatment, in this case, may be higher.
  • CyberKnife treatment cost. The price is not a key factor to choose a CyberKnife center. Very often, the CyberKnife surgery cost may be higher, but is performed on the older device. For instance, the procedure cost on the latest CyberKnife M6 in Turkey may be 20-30% cheaper than on the older modifications applied in Germany. The price policy in a hospital significantly depends on the local citizens’ income within a particular country, not a quality of medical services.
  • Hospital location. If you want to get to the chosen hospital as soon as possible and feel comfortable, do not choose medical centers in the countries far from your native one.

If you have questions regarding CyberKnife center, submit a request on Bookimed.

What does the CyberKnife treatment cost depend on?

The price of CyberKnife treatment is affected by the following factors:

  • CyberKnife modification. The treatment with CyberKnife M6 will 10-15% higher than with CyberKnife VSI (older modification). However, the characteristics of these devices are about the same, but CyberKnife M6 provides the most precise irradiation.
  • The place for treatment. The CyberKnife treatment cost differs from country to country. European hospitals offer the same procedure 2 times more expensive than Turkish ones. It is determined by general price policy within the states. You can get treatment by CyberKnife M6 (the newest modification) in Turkey 50% cheaper than on CyberKnife VSI (older modification) in Germany or Spain.

If you need to know how much CyberKnife treatment costs in your case, submit a request.

What does the cost of CyberKnife treatment include?

The prices for CyberKnife treatment given on this page are pointed per a session. Only 1 cycle of irradiation is required. The cost usually includes the procedure itself.

Such additional services as accommodation, transfer, medical examination, consultation with a doctor, are paid additionally.

What is the average cost of CyberKnife treatment?

The average cost of CyberKnife treatment is $10,600 according to the data provided by hospitals. Depending on the country and medical center, the price may be lower or higher.

How long does the CyberKnife treatment last?

The treatment course consists of 1 CyberKnife session. The duration of session is 30-120 minutes. The CyberKnife treatment cost depends on the therapy length.

How is CyberKnife treatment performed?

Preparation for CyberKnife treatment

A patient undergoes MRI, CT or PET-CT before CyberKnife therapy. A doctor may administer special markers inside or near the tumor to increase the accuracy of influence.

CyberKnife operation process

During the operation, a patient is placed on the special table. He/she breathes calm and tries not to move. The irradiation starts. A computer regulates the location of the linear accelerator and intensity of irradiation. Patients with claustrophobia and children are sedated with light drugs.

After the procedure

A patient returns home in several hours after the procedure. In the case of oncological diseases treatment, additional medical observation may be required. The following 6-9 months a tumor reduces up to the complete disappearance.

CyberKnife vs GammaKnife: pros and cons

GammaKnife is a precursor of CyberKnife. GammaKnife cannot adapt to the movements of a patient and requires the fixation of the body while CyberKnife does. This allows affecting the pathology more precise without damaging healthy cells.

Innovative CyberKnife units control patient’s movements (i.g. breathing) and accurately irradiate a tumor.

CyberKnife can be applied as a primary treatment option for early stages of an oncological disease. It also can be combined with surgical treatment and chemotherapy.
