5 Recent Brain tumor removal Reviews in Turkey: Check Real Patient Experience

Valerie • Brain tumor removal
United States of America
Nov 7, 2023

Verified review.
I am not the patient, but a friend to the family. Dr. Leila, of Bookimed, has been constantly there to expedite the process of helping Br. Zakariya to o get his medical treatment. She was available during times when she was not even supposed to be working. Dr. Leila is truly an asset to Bookimed, and I feel blessed to have had her on the team.
When the patient was stuck at the airport, and Dr. Leila saw that he, and his brother received the tickets needed to fly to Sivas.
I feel that there needs to be someone stationed at the airport to escort international patients directly to their gate, andon to their flight. The airport personnel were not very helpful.
About Bookimed service
I feel that Dr. Leila went beyond her job responsibilities, and that she deserves compensation from the company for her high-level of professionalism.

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.

Hello, we are from Kazakhstan. Came here for diagnosis and treatment of my son. We really liked the clinic. Neurologist Barış Metin explained everything to us in detail. We learned a lot about my son's illness. My son has hydrocephalus and even after the tests we found out that he has epilepsy, the VP-shunt works at an accelerated rate, so my son did not develop. Now we are receiving treatment. We hope it helps insha Allah. I also liked the staff, especially the translators, I forgot the names, but one of them even knows the Kazakh language. It was super convenient. Thank you very much Bookimed, you are the best, you helped us a lot, especially thanks to Oksana and Anna, they always answered on time and put up with us for more than a month.

We got to the MEMORIAL clinic due to an urgent diagnosis. The successful outcome of the operation depended on promptness. The question was about days. The operation was carried out the next day. The most difficult operation according to the Whipple method. Conducted by professor, head of surgery. Low bow to him. The entire staff of the department works perfectly, promptly responds to any request. Separately, I want to say about the work of the translator Aida. High qualification, operational work at any time of the day, sincerity - only a small description of her qualities. Special thanks for providing meals to the patient and accompanying person. The cuisine is very tasty, in some positions it is better than homemade. I enjoyed the vegetarian cuisine. But there is a different one. A low bow to all the staff of the clinic.

FAQ about Brain tumor removal in Turkey

In all cases, the procedure is performed according to strict international treatment protocols.
  • Clinic’s brand. If the hospital is famous worldwide, accredited and awarded by numerous medical institutions, the brain tumor surgery cost in such facilities may be higher.
  • Doctor’s expertise. Neurosurgeons who have decades of experience, participate in clinical research, develop new surgical techniques, have positive reviews, often ask for a higher fee.
  • Severity of intervention. If a tumor is easy to reach, the price for surgery is lower, while complex intervention will cost more expensive.
  • Travel charges. Calculate the charges for the plane tickets before going to get brain tumor surgery abroad. It can significantly affect the price.

  • Availability of neuronavigation system. It helps a doctor to control all the movements to decrease the possibility of damaging healthy brain tissues during the surgery.
  • Narrow neurosurgical specialization of a clinic/department. Pay attention whether a chosen hospital has a specialized neurosurgery department or clinic. Such units are equipped with the state-of the-art equipment (robotic and endoscopic devices), and the doctors working there have a vast experience in surgeries performing.
  • Success rate of the brain tumor removal. The leading clinics provide high recovery rate and long life expectancy after the surgery.

When brain tumor surgery is indicated?

The operation to remove a brain tumor is carried out if the neoplasm:

  • grows rapidly
  • puts pressure on adjacent tissues and causes neurologic symptoms (worsening of hearing or vision, memory impairment, imbalance and coordination disorders)
  • is located in the brain area easily accessible for surgical intervention
  • has clear boundaries with surrounding tissues.
The contraindications for the operation:
  • a tumor is located in the brain areas responsible for vital functions of the body
  • a tumor is hard-to-reach
  • multiple neoplasms (more than 3).

Only a specialist can determine the final decision about the possibility of surgery and the brain tumor removal cost.

What are the types of brain tumor removal surgeries?

Craniotomy for brain tumor removal

Craniotomy (trepanation of the skull) is a traditional option for brain tumor removal. A neurosurgeon removes the upper part of the skull. It provides a good visibility during the surgery and allows removing a tumor completely.

The procedure is conducted under general anesthesia and control of neuronavigation system.

In some cases, the surgery is performed when a patient is conscious. In such a way, a doctor can control the functioning of the patient’s brain during the operation. While a neurosurgeon operates, another doctor or nurse asks a patient questions to check memory, hearing, vision. This technique is called craniotomy in consciousness or awake craniotomy.

The advantages of craniotomy:

  • removal of tumors of any size
  • higher accuracy of the operation due to neuronavigation.

The disadvantages of the method:

  • risk of postoperative complications
  • risk of damaging healthy brain tissue
  • long rehabilitation period.

Endoscopic brain tumor removal

This is technique for brain surgery when a neurosurgeon removes a tumor through a hole in the skull bone (about 3 cm in diameter). A doctor inserts surgical instruments and a special camera through this opening. It allows completely seeing the formation and surrounding tissues.

The operation is performed under general anesthesia.

The advantages of the method:

  • low injury rate
  • rapid recovery after surgery.

The endoscopic brain tumor removal is not indicated when a tumor is large.

Tumors of the pituitary are removed through the nasal sinuses.

Microsurgical removal of a brain tumor

This is the removal of a tumor under the control of neuronavigation.

Neuronavigation is a special system that allows controlling process of operation on the brain. The operation consists of 2 steps.

Step 1: Planning

A patient must undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) of the brain. A doctor loads examination results into a computer navigation station. The system helps choosing the best access type to remove the tumor.

Step 2: Operation

The data loaded into the station and the neurosurgeon's instruments are connected to the patient's brain. A doctor uses special infrared cameras and reflecting frames to make the connection. Neuronavigation detects each movement of a doctor with an error margin of 1 mm. In this case, mistakes are minimal or absent.

The technique is used for craniotomy and endoscopic tumor removal.

The advantages of the operation:

  • low injury rate
  • low risk of postoperative complications.

The disadvantage of the method: it is not used for tumors located in hard-to-reach places.

Removal of a tumor under the control of neuromonitoring

Neuromonitoring is a system for evaluating basic brain functions. It analyzes such conditions during the surgery:

intracranial pressure

blood flow


function of the brain.

During the operation, neuromonitoring controls the brain activity in dynamics. A neurosurgeon receives information about organism vitals in a real time. It helps to prevent damage of healthy brain tissues.

Neuromonitoring is used for craniotomy and endoscopic removal of the brain tumor.

The advantages of the operation:

  • low injury rate
  • low risk of postoperative complications.

The disadvantage of the method: it is not used for tumors that are located in hard-to-reach places.

If the tumor cannot be removed surgically, a doctor may prescribe radiotherapy. Such techniques as CyberKnife, GammaKnife, Novalis linear accelerator are available in the leading clinics.

The brain tumor surgery cost is determined individually taking into account an operation type, tumor location, patient’s health condition.

How does preparation for the brain tumor removal go?

Such tests are conducted before a brain tumor removal:

  • MRI of the brain (with or without contrast) to detect location of the tumor and its size
  • electroencephalography to estimate brain disorders caused by the tumor
  • complete blood analysis
  • hepatitis and HIV tests
  • ultrasound
  • ECG
  • X-ray.

How does a recovery after the brain tumor operation go?

A patient stays in the intensive care unit for up to 3 days after the operation.

The duration of hospital stay is:

  • 14-20 days after craniotomy
  • up to 10 days after endoscopic operation.

If the tumor influences any organism functions, a patient needs to undergo neurologic rehabilitation. Its duration depends on the health condition. The price for rehab is not included in the brain tumor surgery cost.

After the brain tumor removal it is necessary to regularly undergo medical examination and MRI. It allows estimating the effectiveness of treatment and preventing possible relapse in time.
