Владислав • Sep 23, 2022
Hello, my name is Vladislav Ivanov, Ukraine, Odessa city. In February 2021, my daughter Vlada was diagnosed with anaplastic ependymoma, we went to the doctors for a week trying to find out why the child started having severe headaches. They went through examinations, did an MRI, and as a fact, they found a brain tumor. That's when the ground slipped from under my feet. Realization has come - this has already happened, which means you need to quickly take action. The first thing we did was go to the children's hospital in Kyiv, the child was given a shunt. But unfortunately, fluid began to collect in my head and my vision began to fall sharply. The doctors explained that an operation was urgently needed. We did not have a large accumulated amount, and we decided to complete the operation abroad. We contacted Bookmed. We contacted the employee Marina. Marina quickly found a clinic for us in Turkey, organized a trip for us, flew to Turkey in a matter of days. The hospital was already waiting for us. Examined, took blood for tests and the next day an operation was scheduled. Everything went well. Then they underwent a course of radiotherapy. The results are positive, we were sent home to Ukraine (August 2021). Every 3 months they underwent MRI, the pictures were good .. But a year later, in March 2022, we heard the terrible words “relapse”, “war”. Hastily collected the necessary documents and left for Lviv. From there, by large buses, all children with cancer began to be taken out along the humanitarian corridor from Ukraine to Europe. The daughter and his wife were assigned to France. A second operation was performed, the tumor was removed, and after that a course of chemotherapy was prescribed. After a month of taking the course, the doctor said that chemotherapy was not helping. The doctor suggested experimental chemotherapy, but that didn't help either. As a result, the daughter is getting worse and worse every day. The child began to walk badly, the right leg and handle practically do not work. The child melted before my eyes. It's all very scary, but it's worse to leave Vlad without an opportunity for treatment. I again turned to Marina Bookmed Marina again very quickly found us a hospital in Turkey, helped us with the flight Paris Istanbul. Arrived at the hospital 2 days later, the operation was successful!!! After the operation, the child began to talk, swallow, and after a couple of days to walk. What I want to say Bookmed in particular Marina Provided us with moral support documentary for the second time at the highest level. Marina many thanks to you and your team THANK YOU.

Physicians use Gamma Knife in the Radiology Department. This procedure is conducted by radiologists to treat various stages of intracranial cancer and glaucoma.

Gamma Knife is a non-invasive single-session procedure. During the operation, physicians use CT or other types of scanning to plan their actions.

The Gamma Knife radiosurgery cost is calculated individually after the examination.

At Memorial Healthcare Group radiologists use Gamma Knife to treat patients in the Oncology Department. The procedure is utilized to eradicate metastases in the brain. It is not recommended for use if the tumor is too big, is developing too fast or its boundaries are hard to determine.

The operation is non-invasive, meaning a patient doesn’t require any rehabilitation. Also, it doesn’t harm patient’s health, because of the precise beam technology. Doctors observe patients for a month after the operation.

FAQ about Gamma Knife in Turkey

What factors affect a Gamma Knife surgery cost?

A Gamma Knife treatment cost depends on the following factors:

  • Country for treatment. The prices for treatment with Gamma Knife varies from country to country. For instance, the most affordable therapy costs for therapy are in Turkey — 2-3 times cheaper than in South Korea or Western European countries, for instance. This is explained by a general living wage within the states, the quality of treatment remains the same.
  • Number of treatment sessions with Gamma Knife. The cost of Gamma Knife treatment depends on the size of a tumor and the number of required therapeutic sessions. Only a doctor can determine the exact Gamma Knife procedure cost in your case.

Submit a request to get a detailed price list and schedule the treatment in a chosen hospital.

What does a Gamma Knife price include?

The Gamma Knife cost is pointed for 1 cycle in the listing. Anesthesia and admission are not required. A patient can pay additionally for a consultation with a doctor.

How to get a personalized Gamma Knife radiosurgery cost?

  1. Submit a request to Bookimed. Describe your medical issue and requirements about treatment.
  2. Attach your medical records, so Bookimed manager will send them to a chosen hospital.
  3. The medical center calculates a personalized cost of Gamma Knife treatment for your case.

How to choose Gamma Knife center?

When choosing the best Gamma Knife surgery center, take into account:

  • Gamma Knife unit effectiveness for treatment of a particular disease;
  • neurologists, neurosurgeons, and radiologists qualification;
  • diagnostic program accuracy.

One more criterion is Gamma Knife treatment cost. For instance, Gamma Knife surgery price in Turkey or India is 2-3 times lower than in Europe or Korea. Despite the affordable cost, the effectiveness is the same.

Gamma Knife treatment centers work according to strict international medical protocols.

When Gamma Knife radiosurgery is prescribed?

Indications for Gamma Knife surgery

Doctors apply Gamma Knife to treat:

  • brain tumors (up to 3.5 cm in size)
  • neuralgia
  • vascular malformations
  • glaucoma and oncological eye diseases.

The latest Gamma Knife unit is applied to treat tumors of the brain and spinal cord.

Contraindications for Gamma Knife surgery

Gamma Knife is ineffective in case of big neoplasms. The method is not used if:

  • tumor size is more than 3.5 cm
  • a tumor grows rapidly
  • a neoplasm has no clear boundaries
  • a patient has increased intracranial pressure
  • a patient is in a critical condition (cerebral edema, infections, cardiovascular diseases, exacerbation of chronic diseases).

The effect of Gamma Knife treatment is delayed and can be estimated 3-6 months after irradiation.

How Gamma Knife procedure is performed?

Gamma-ray irradiation concentrates in the target determined by a radiologist. The rays affect diseased cells and stop their growth. Gamma Knife is harmless for healthy cells and surrounding tissues.

What is the difference between Gamma Knife and other methods?

Incisions are not necessary for Gamma Knife session. There is no risk of bleeding, infections or damage to healthy tissues.

Full therapeutic effect is achieved after 1 procedure. When other types if radiosurgery (CyberKnife, Novalis linear accelerator) are applied, a patient receives 5-15 treatment cycles.

The accuracy of ray influence is up to 0.3 mm.

The treatment does not require hospitalization and rehabilitation period. A patient can return to usual lifestyle right after the irradiation.

Preparation for Gamma Knife procedure

A doctor detects tumor size and location using CT or MRI. In case of vascular brain malformations, specialists conduct angiography.

Before irradiation, a radiologist develops a treatment plan using MRI and angiography data. This plan is sent to Gamma Knife unit console.

The Gamma Knife radiosurgery cost is calculated after the complete diagnostics.

Gamma Knife procedure process

A patient is placed on the table. A doctor fixes the head in the special stereotactic frame. Soft sedatives are injected so a patient feels comfortable.

The apparatus directs the irradiation inside the tumor. It detects tumor size according to the treatment plan and coordinates frame.
