I needed to have a spinal mri in Italy, and couldn’t find any clinic that could do it. It was either a 4 month wait, clinic never called me back, or they hung up because my Italian wasn’t very good. I contacted Bookimed and within hours they responded and put me in touch with a lovely woman in Milan who got me an appointment at a private clinic in Milan in 2 days. She accompanied me throughout the appointment and translated when necessary. Something I dreaded ended up being a smooth and easy process. Thank you.

После предварительного собеседования. Предоставиди выбор из несскольких клиник. Связали с представителем выбранной клиники. Дали контакты. Все дальнейшее общении и информацию получал напрямую от представителя клиники. Никаки предоплат не требовалось. Все договоренности были выполнены по заранее договоренным датам, без каких либо накладок. Договор на мед обслуживани заключался в клинике непосредственно перед госпитализацией. Спасибо сайту за грамотную оценку необходимых услуг и быстрый выход на необходимую клинику.

I had to book 3 appointments in a hospital at Istanbul for my brother and his wife, both with serious health problems. I have contacted Bookimed who had reacted immediately and put me in touch with Dr Emad Hussein. After listening to the description of the sicknesses of my relatives, Dr Hussein explained very clearly what are the medical documents to have for the day of appointment as well as all administrative steps to follow. Then he put in touch with Mrs Farah from Liv Hospital for the appointments and she has been very efficient and helpful. I do not know how to thank Dr Hussein and bookimed for the excellent service provided. Nadia

Очень и очень довольна взаимодействием с Букимед. Прошла лечение от рака молочной железы. В ноябре 2018 года летала на обследование в Стамбул, клиники Медиполь и Анадолу. Помогли с билетами, организацией поездки, всегда оставались на связи. Координатор от Букимеда имеет медицинское образование, может качественно проконсультировать по поводу клиник, врачей. Лично для меня это большой плюс. До этого я лечилась в Израиле, организовывала все своими силами и потратила несравнимо больше времени, сил и нервов. Буду работать с Букимед в будущем и рекомендовать знакомым.

Very helpful and nice people. They’re quick on response, and they give the best recommendations.

The whole experience was amazing!! The doctors are very caring and attentive. Some nurses don't speak english but as long as you can use Google Translate you're good. You are sore, as expected, after the surgery but they give you plenty of painkillers. All in all this was 10/10 experience and i fully recommend everyone to go to dr. HE clinic for bariatric surgery.

Verified review. The patient was treated of obesity in Robotic Surgery Center in St. Zdislava Hospital

The clinic is modern, located in a beautiful area. The optimal ratio of price and quality of medical services. The staff is friendly, young people do not speak Russian, in a pinch, you can communicate in English. Separately, I want to thank: - treatment organizer Irina Korchminskaya - Concierge Hospital Otakar Peschik. Клиника современная, расположена в красивом районе. Оптимальное соотношение цены и качества медицинских услуг. Персонал дружелюбный, молодые люди не говорят по-русски, но можно общаться на английском языке.
Отдельно хочу поблагодарить:
- хирурга Игоря Шимоника
- организатора лечения Ирину Корчминскую
- координатора Отакар Песчика.

Carlo was amazing! He made sure I knew exactly what to expect every step of the way. There was always someone at the hospital who spoke English, and everyone there made my stay comfortable. Carlo even checked up on me once I was home through my recover several times. I will admit I was scared at first about leaving the US to have the surgery but I’m so glad I did it!

Questions and answers

What is sleeve gastrectomy?

Gastric sleeve or vertical sleeve gastrectomy is a popular weight loss surgery aimed to remove a significant part of the stomach, restrict the food intake, and make the patient eat much less food in one sitting.

This method does not affect the digestive system, so it helps avoid many side effects (lack of minerals and vitamins, etc.) in contrast with other types of bariatric procedures.

How effective is gastric sleeve resection?

Bariatric surgery is a very effective and fast weight loss method. Most patients lose from 60% to 70% of excess weight in the first years after the operation, reaching the desired weight, a better quality of life and health in general.

Who benefits gastric sleeve ?

If you think about this bariatric technique, you must:

  • have a body mass index (BMI) 40+ kg/m2 
  • have BMI 30+ kg/m2 with related serious disorders (diabetes, hypertension, obstructive sleep apnea, high cholesterol level, etc.)
  • have an acceptable risk for the operation
  • be well informed and motivated
  • unsuccessfully try all reasonable non-surgical methods of losing weight.

What are the contraindications?

Like any other surgical intervention, gastric sleeve resection has some contraindications that include:

  • uncontrolled mental disorder, such as depression
  • drug or alcohol addiction
  • cancer
  • cardiovascular disorders
  • inability to comply with a diet with minimum nutritional requirements, including lifelong vitamin intake (if indicated).

What is preoperative preparation for the surgery?

Stomach sleeve resection is performed strictly for medical reasons. Only a specialist can confirm the diagnosis and make sure that other treatment methods are ineffective. 

During preoperative preparation, the patient needs to undergo a comprehensive body examination that includes:

  • gastroscopy
  • abdominal ultrasound
  • electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • chest X-ray
  • blood tests
  • general urine analysis
  • coagulogram (blood clotting test).

The vertical sleeve gastrectomy is performed strictly on an empty stomach. The day before, gastric lavage (stomach pumping) is required.

What is the stomach sleeve resection process?

The surgery is minimally invasive. Bariatric specialists carry it out laparoscopically (through small incisions). Gastric sleeve is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 1-2 hours

During the operation, the surgeon makes 3-4 small incisions on the anterior abdominal wall, and injects carbon dioxide into the abdominal cavity. Then the doctor immerses the endoscope and surgical instruments into the incisions. The intervention is displayed on the monitor, so the specialist controls all the movements and processes as a whole. During the sleeve gastrectomy , the bariatric surgeon removes 89% of the stomach.

What are the risks of sleeve gastrectomy?

After the stomach sleeve resection, the patient can face some complications:

  • inflammation of the peritoneum (peritonitis) 
  • bleeding 
  • deep vein thrombosis of the lower extremities
  • pneumonia 
  • abdominal abscesses
  • wound infections 
  • swallowing difficulty 
  • stretching of the stomach and weight gain
  • heartburn 
  • gallstones 
  • constipation 
  • diarrhea. 
  • excess skin 
  • hair loss 
  • dumping syndrome.

To avoid complications, you should follow all doctor’s recommendations.

How long is the rehabilitation period after the procedure?

After the stomach sleeve resection , the patient stays in a hospital. The hospitalization lasts 2-3 days. In the first few days, the specialists prescribe a bed regimen and parenteral nutrition (the food is administered through tubing attached to a needle or catheter). 

Gradually, the patient will be able to take semi-liquid food. In the future, the patient should keep a balanced diet and strictly follow the doctor’s recommendations.

In general, rehabilitation takes about 2 months. During this period, the patient must wear a special bandage, limit physical activity, and take vitamin and mineral supplements to avoid complications.

What are the advantages of sleeve gastrectomy ?

  • reduces the amount of food intake
  • effective for people with severe obesity
  • does not spoil the digestion
  • does not change the intestine
  • does not lead to a mineral or vitamin deficiency
  • less commonly leads to dumping syndrome
  • no further intervention (filling, adjustment) required 
  • fewer risks of complications and metabolic disorders development
  • foreign body implantation in the stomach (balloon, bandage) is not required.

What are the disadvantages of the procedure ?

  • weight loss is not so significant as after gastric bypass surgery
  • requires some diet restrictions
  • as any other operation can cause some complications
  • the stomach may stretch over time
  • the operation is irreversible.
