What patients like:

  1. Cost.The Mastectomy cost in Turkey varies from 3387$ to 18200$. This price is significantly lower compared to the average cost in the United States, which can reach up to $15,000.
  2. Doctor’s professionalism. Patients appreciate the professional and friendly doctors. They value their careful, non-rushed approach to decision-making and their collaboration with a team of physicians to discuss treatment plans.
  3. Service level. The high level of service, including transportation and coordination of tests and doctor visits, is well-liked among patients. The presence of an interpreter, providing language assistance, is also highly appreciated.
  4. Mastectomy efficacy. Patients feel confident in the efficacy of the treatment plan proposed by the doctors. They appreciate the careful consideration given to their individual situation, leading to tailored treatment plans.
  5. Logistics. Patients value the organized logistics, including transportation and coordination of tests and doctor visits. They find the assistance of a medical coordinator and interpreter to be incredibly helpful.

What patients don't like:

  1. Cost Transparency. While the overall cost of the treatment is lower than in other countries, patients would prefer to know the total cost upfront, rather than paying for each test and medication individually.
  2. Emotional Strain. Despite the high quality of care and service, dealing with a serious health issue like a tumor in a foreign country can be emotionally challenging for patients.
  3. Limited Leisure Time. Although Turkey is a beautiful country with friendly people and good, cheap food, patients may not have ample time to enjoy these aspects due to their medical condition and treatment schedule.

I was really nervous about a new breast lump that developed. I reached out to Book I med and explained my situation. I was directed to Hisar Intercontinental Hospital. They did biopsy, ultrasound and PET scan. Although I wanted surgery, doctor explained it wasn't in my best interest and recommended medication instead. Doctors were careful to come up with plan, they didn't rush to make decisions. I had a medical coordinator who assisted in transportation to and from hospital and coordinating tests and doctor visits. I was also assigned an interpreter for Turkish to English.They were both wonderful and it was nice to have assistance and smiling faces when I arrived. They always took time to listen to concerns and answer questions. I met with 2 doctors, a breast cancer surgeon and oncologist. They both were professional and friendly. They met with a tumor board of physicians to discuss my plan.I feel like I got professional care and good treatment plan. The hospital was clean and modern. They did a good job with the tests, I didn't feel any pain from the doctor who did my biopsy. Believe me when you have something as scary as a breast lump you want to be in good hands.I paid for each test and medication individually with credit card. I was told the cost before each purchase. Even though the whole bill wasn't cheap, it's much much lower cost than I could get in United States. As a self pay patient I am glad for that also. So overall even though I was struggling with something really bad(tumor) I feel like I got great and professional care at a decent price. I would truly recommend this to anyone. And Turkey is such a beautiful country with friendly people. There is hidden artwork everywhere. So even though I am going through this ordeal being in beautiful Turkey makes it not so bad. The food here is really good and cheap. I'm staying in Old city which has tons of Cafe restaurants. In your spare time just sitting at a Cafe and watching the myriad of people walking by is fun. I am confident I am going to beat this breast tumor with the help of the wonderful care given at Hisar Intercontinental Hospital.

From visiting the clinic and undergoing examination were only negative impressions. Appointed to the doctor for 10 days at a certain time, and got an hour later! All tests were taken promptly, in 1 day and promised the results and a visit to the doctor in 2-3 days (the doctor himself said that everything needs to be done very quickly, because I needed urgent treatment), and silence .... Irada I didn’t answer calls ... We only got contact with the help of Bookimed employees! In general, we got to the doctor only after a week, and we were told that we needed to do another examination !!! (remembered) In general, we lost time in vain, which is very important for cancer patients, nerves and money ... Many thanks to the girls from Bookimed for support, help and patience Ie !!! I am grateful to Katerina, Daria, Olga and Darina for the help and support !!! I do not recommend Medipole. I am undergoing treatment in another clinic!

This place is a money hungry butcher shop. They sent me away with a terrible infection that landed me in another hospital for a month in intensive care and two more surgeries that cost twice as much. My legs look like show leather and are really butchered up. My face is still swollen and it’s been 2 months. This company is the worst company for healthcare and compassion. They got their money and left me to rot. No follow up care what so ever. I couldn’t even clean myself up. The infection was so bad. There was no support. The doctor said someone would come by and give me a shower and they went out of town. Someone that wasn’t part of the support system came to help me. I needed a professional. Just before I left I was septic. NO HELPED me at all. They ignored the symptoms I reported. They sent me out of the country without paperwork that I was fit to travel. Which I wasn’t. I was lucky to finally get home and check into a hospital immediately.

Ihsan was absolutely amazing! He is very friendly and always available. He is the best coordinator. I would recommend Ihsan to everyone 😁. Dr. Ali Ertan Capar and his surgical nurse, Jon, where very professional, personable, and accommodating. They checked on me regularly. I definitely recommend the doctor and his team. The doctor's office was very first class and clean. I loved the decor. The hospital staff used language translators to communicate. The food was not good at the hospital. Take your own breakfast bars. Suggestion: in future have the hospital provide water to patients. I was service lunch with no beverage. Thank GOD I was given several bottled water from Jon at his expenses. I would NOT recommend the A11 hotel. The breakfast is the same everyday. No room service. The elevator doesn't go to the lobby. The room was very small. The bed is very low. Difficult to get up after surgery. My room didn't get cleaned. No AC kept cutting off. The doorman does his best to assist. I changed hotels to Cevahir Hotel Istanbul Asia. This hotel was 5 star and fantastic! 24 hour room service! Very clean. My room was cleaned everyday. Most of the staff spoke English. Very good menu. The food was delicious. The room was spacious and had a water view. I could open the window for fresh air.

Hello everybody. Thanks to the Clinic for a successful operation. To the Neurosurgeon Mustafa Onaz and Professor Gohan. We are diagnosed with Brain cancer, the last stage, malignant. The tumor was twice as large. They saved my husband's life. Masha Allah. The operation was 8-9 hours. they deleted everything, I consider this a record. It was a difficult operation. Well done. At our KZ they could not remove everything that was, only a small part was removed and that's it. I bow to you. At the expense of the clinic. Service At the Highest Level.

FAQ about Mastectomy in Turkey

Mastectomy is a radical treatment for breast cancer.

Unlike lumpectomy (tumor removal), mastectomy involves resection of the entire breast.

Indications for total breast removal:

  • a malignant tumor in the breast is large,
  • the tumor cannot be removed from one incision, since there are several foci.

Also, during a mastectomy, regional (axillary) lymph nodes are removed.

Types of mastectomy

  • according to Halsted (removal of pectoralis major and minor muscles and axillary tissue);
  • according to Urban (removal of pectoralis major and minor muscles, axillary tissue and lymph nodes);
  • according to Patty (removal of the mammary gland and pectoralis minor muscle);
  • according to Madden (removal of the gland with preservation of the pectoral muscles).

Benefits of mastectomy:

Disadvantages of breast removal

  • breast loss;
  • longer recovery period after surgery.

Side effects of mastectomy

  • side effects of general anesthesia (dizziness, headache, confusion, nausea, etc.);
  • bleeding;
  • infection;
  • lymphedema.

Lymphedema is swelling of the extremities caused by stagnation of lymph after removal of the lymph node.

Edema can develop immediately after surgery, and after a fairly long time.

Lymph stasis is characterized by:

  • swelling of the limbs, a feeling of heaviness in them:
  • decreased flexibility in the arms and legs;

If you see signs of lymphedema, be sure to tell your doctor about them.

I am confident I am going to beat this breast tumor with the help of the wonderful care given at Hisar Intercontinental Hospital.

-I was lucky that I went to the website "Bukimed"
I'll start with the most important thing. The most important thing in a huge sea of ​​information is to choose the right "light", "lighthouse", which will point the way to a person who finds himself in this abyss with a limited time and money limit. I was lucky that I went to the website "Bukimed". I was contacted by coordinating physician Ivan Koval, who was very tactful and at the same time confidently leading me forward. I rushed from one clinic to another, from one operator to another, he calmly explained to me all the pros and cons and was support even when I already completely refused his help and tuned in to another operator. Even then, he very tactfully warned about possible pitfalls and continued to be an assistant. As a result, I took his advice and did not regret it. Hi Medical is very sympathetic to customers, helps with everything, tries to reduce customer costs, where possible. Organizes as quickly as possible consultations and time-examination. Special thanks to Victoria, who spins like a squirrel in a wheel to keep everything in order, always in touch and will not rest until the matter is brought to an end. My treatment is not yet complete, but I'm glad that I got into such a nice team, which brightens up, as much as possible, a person's life one-to-one with his illness. Thank you and for a healthy sense of humor, it also helps to overcome illness!))) And, still. Ivan was in touch with me throughout his stay in Israel. He was convinced that I flew, I was met and I was engaged. He made sure that I get everything that was promised. And after my return home, too, remains in touch, helping in my next steps. Thanks for the help!

From visiting the clinic and undergoing examination were only negative impressions. Appointed to the doctor for 10 days at a certain time, and got an hour later! All tests were taken promptly, in 1 day and promised the results and a visit to the doctor in 2-3 days (the doctor himself said that everything needs to be done very quickly, because I needed urgent treatment), and silence .... Irada I didn’t answer calls ... We only got contact with the help of Bookimed employees! In general, we got to the doctor only after a week, and we were told that we needed to do another examination !!! (remembered) In general, we lost time in vain, which is very important for cancer patients, nerves and money ... Many thanks to the girls from Bookimed for support, help and patience Ie !!! I am grateful to Katerina, Daria, Olga and Darina for the help and support !!! I do not recommend Medipole. I am undergoing treatment in another clinic!
