The patient was treated of thrombocytopenia

I am very grateful to the Bookimed employees for organizing my trip to the Helios clinic. With your help, the worst and the unknown turned out to be a wonderful reality. The examination and attitude of the clinic staff deserve the highest praise. Doctors and nurses are very nice and kind people. All procedures were carried out quickly and professionally. As for the organization of the consultation, the flight, the accommodation and the translator, the Bookimed employees worked clearly and quickly, which greatly simplified the whole process of organizing my trip to Berlin. I would like to express special thanks to the translator Elena Tkach, who not only professionally performed her duties, but at the right moment was a good psychologist for me. Thank you all very much for your decency and humanity!

The patient was treated of paraganglioma

Good afternoon to all patients who will read my review. We passed in the clinic treatment with radioactive iodine MBIG-131. Everything was organized according to the dates and very quickly. Excellent and caring interpreters accompany you throughout the treatment. Doctors are very responsive, and are also fully responsible for their patient. As for the price policy, it can be brewed and does not correspond to the original amount, which will provide accounting accounting. But in any case, this treatment is available and if compared with other countries, the price is much lower. I wish everyone success and good health !!

We were treated at the Helios Berlin Buch clinic, a diagnosis of the intervertebral hernia, an operation was prescribed. The operation was conducted by Pr. J. Kiwit is a neurosurgeon, the head of the department of neurosurgery in this clinic. It was very exciting, but everything went fine, excellent service, conditions, and most importantly very professional treatment. The operation was done successfully. Many thanks to the company Bukimed, Katerina Potapova, for understanding, for patience. The question aroused the issue of the amount on the account, there was a fear that there would be more costs, but it turned out the opposite, even made a return of the balance to the account, and quite good. Nothing superfluous was not assigned to m not included in the bill. The clinic is very large, in a beautiful suburb of Berlin. An interpreter is necessary if there is no English knowledge, and if there is, then all doctors and assistants and interns speak good English, as well as medical staff. Thanks to Bukimed (Katerina Potapova) Anna, 05/11/2017

The patient underwent hip replacement

Hello! My name is Tamara, I am from Tbilisi. I applied to Bookimed with such a complex disorder as coxarthrosis of the hip. I suffered from this disorder during long time. I was born with congenital dislocation of the hip which was cured during the first three years of my life. Then, my family and I were in a car accident and my right hip was broken. I was treated during long time, had skeletal extension, then plaster, the therapy lasted two years until Dr. Ilizarov G.A. installed me Ilizarov apparatus. It was 35 years ago, since that I have finished my studies, got married, born children and grown them up. And I did not feel any inconvenience. Three years ago I felt an acute pain which did not let me neither walk nor sleep and made obstructions to my ordinary life. When I underwent a complete examination and had all tests, I was told that a surgery is the only solution. As I wanted to walk during the rest of my life without any complications and infections and had a guarantee, which our surgeons could not provide me (I don’t want to offend them), I have chosen this particular hospital. I found many clinics in Internet. Several hospitals in Germany and Israel offered me their assistance but for some reason I decided in favour of Helios Hospital in Hamburg. Medical experience of Professor Thorsten Herke inspired me confidence: he has made surgeries to many Georgian patients who can normally walk, ride a bicycle, drive and move at the moment. My choice was also influenced by presence of physiotherapist Sergei Karsten who practices all types of rehabilitation. He uses his own technique of massage and physical therapy. He knows how to develop joints to avoid stiffness of the body and to provide a full range of movements.

The patient was treated in this clinic

I had severe pains while walking and having load on my hips which limited my movements and Kazakh therapists proposed me only administration of strong analgesics. I did not receive physiotherapy and almost could not move I heard about good quality of German clinics and first of all that patients make a good recovery. Kazakh doctors believe that after installation of hip prosthesis normal range of movements can be achieved only in 6 months, but here I could start walking in several weeks after the surgery. I considered a treatment in Israel. Price policy there is almost the same as in Germany but there is no system of rehabilitation centers and rehabilitation therapy similar to German. I found a private clinic HELIOS-Endo. I was convinced both by reputation of the hospital and good reviews of Kazakhs who were treated there. I expected that after my treatment in Helios I can walk without pain. And regardless that I had the surgery less than two weeks ago, my condition has greatly improved. I am very satisfied with the result. Professor Gerke made my surgery and I want to express my gratitude to him. Besides excellent surgery and regardless extreme occupation, he paid me a lot of attention. I felt safe in the hospital.

The patient was treated in this clinic

We were very pleased with the treatment in Germany. It's a shame that high-quality medical services have to go abroad, because in Volgograd we were not able to provide the necessary assistance. We were met at the airport, and immediately settled. The hospital is very clean, the doctors smile, all polite. By the way, they are very grateful to the translator, she worked with us very much. Once again to all the organizers of the bookimed many thanks, we are all very pleased. All of you health!

The patient underwent hip replacement

Hello! My name is Larissa, I'm from the city of Orenburg and led me here such a complicated disease as coxarthrosis of the hip joint. My disease I have a very long time, I was born with a congenital hip dislocation, which was cured during the first three years of my life. Then we experienced an accident with the family and I had a fracture of the right hip. I was treated for a long time, there was skeletal traction, then gypsum, for treatment it took two years, while Elizarov GA. I did not put the apparatus Elizarov. It was 35 years ago and in life I somehow managed to run and learn, get married, have children, grow them. And so it did not stop me. Three years ago, I felt a great pain, which prevented me from walking or sleeping and constantly distracted from normal life. When I underwent a complete examination and passed all the tests, I was told that the only way out is an operation. And as you want to go the rest of life in "their" feet, without any complications and infections and have a guarantee that our surgeons I could not give (even if they do not take offense), I chose the clinic. On the Internet, I found many clinics. Several clinics in Israel and Germany offered to help me, but for some reason I stopped at the Helios clinic in the city of Hamburg. I really instilled confidence in Professor Thorsten Gehrke, who operated on many Russian patients who can walk normally, cycling, driving and continue to move well. Of great importance is that it is in this clinic that there is a Russian-speaking physiotherapist Sergei Karsten, who has knowledge of all types of rehabilitation. He has developed his own tactics of massage and physical education. He knows how to properly develop joints, so that the body does not stagnate and does not sit too long and there was a full volume of movements.

The patient was treated in this clinic

I was tormented by severe pain during movement or with a load on the hips, as a result of which I was restricted in movements, and in Russia the treatment consisted only in the use of strong analgesics. Physiotherapeutic treatment was not received. Almost could not move. I heard about the good quality of the German clinics, and above all that patients are quickly recovering. In Russia it is believed that after the installation of the hip joint prosthesis only after 6 months you can move normally, but here in a few weeks after the operation I was able to walk again. I also thought to be treated in Israel. There the price structure is similar to German, but there is no system of rehabilitation centers and rehabilitation therapy in Germany. In my search, I came across a private clinic HELIOS-ENDO (Helios, clinic of endoprosthetics). I was convinced not only by the reputation of the clinic itself, but also by the excellent responses of Russian patients who were treated in it. My expectations were that I would be able to walk again without pain after the treatment in Helios. And, despite the fact that the operation was done less than two weeks ago, my condition improved significantly. I am very pleased with the result. I was operated on by Professor Gerke, and I want to express my heartfelt gratitude. He not only perfectly operated on me, but despite the intense employment, he gave me a lot of his time. In the clinic I felt myself in safe hands.

The patient was treated in this clinic

In 2013, I underwent endoprosthetics of the hip joint. The operation was done in Helios Endoklinik Hamburg, where they are engaged in the surgery of large joints. It is one of the best orthopedic clinics in Germany, and foreigners are accepted here.

When choosing a clinic, I was guided by three criteria.

First. The hospital should be specialized, and not multidisciplinary: when doctors deal with only one disease, their achievements are much higher than those of doctors whose practice is wide enough.

Second. It should be a large clinic that has been operating for a long time and has a good reputation.

Third. The hospital must be a university to carry out scientific work.

The endo clinic meets all of the above criteria: it is a large specialized university hospital, which has been operating for more than 20 years, is widely known in medical circles and has an impeccable reputation.

I learned about it on the Internet forum, where I was given a link to several videos with reviews. When I looked them over, the fear of the operation let me go. I saw quiet, smiling people on crutches and more and more filled with confidence that I will be all right. And they talked about prosthetics of the knee and hip joints as if talking about visiting a cosmetologist. In addition, they unanimously spoke about the need for rehabilitation after surgery (which in Russia, if carried out, then in a very truncated form), and the Russian-speaking osteopath, which this rehabilitation exercises.

Of course, I realized that the videos with reviews serve purely advertising purposes, but one thing is enthusiastic texts, which often belong to the pen of a PR manager or website editor, and quite another - the live stories of people with whom , as it turned out, can be contacted by phone or email.
When I arrived in Hamburg, reality did not disappoint me at all. On the contrary - from all it followed, that this clinic of a very high level. Medical technology is more modern than the one I had to deal with, research is being carried out quickly, the staff is acting in a coordinated manner. And the endless questionnaire for the selection of anesthesia clearly said that the individual characteristics of the patient are taken into account here as much as possible.

At our municipal hospitals the clinic is completely different. Moreover, they are even somehow strange to compare: they are in too different qualitative categories. If you make any analogies, then the Endo Clinic resembles European sanatoriums in thermal waters - only the staff, perhaps, is more friendly. A large modern building with stylish interiors, spacious rooms for one or two (of course, with a bathroom), everyone has their own TV with headphones. And, of course, a small refrigerator. For the convenience and safety of patients, the clinic provides everything to the last detail.

For example, a multifunctional bed. It consists of three parts and is easily transformed in the necessary way - you just have to press the control button. Immediately, next to, a small table on the hinged mount.

In the bathroom there are all the devices for hygienic procedures after the operation. The tile in the bathroom is not slippery (which is very important for a person on crutches), the floor in the ward is the same. And everywhere is incredibly clean! At the entrance to the ward there is a small device for disinfecting the hands of doctors and nurses. Wet cleaning - every day. After lunch, a person comes into the room, who is wondering if there are any needs outside the clinic's walls (meaning fresh press, fruit or small services). In a word, comfort and security are at the heart of this. If you evaluate the quality of prosthetics, then it says respectful reviews of Russian surgeons who saw my X-ray after surgery.

More importantly, the clinic has its own know-how, which relates to the implantation of the prosthesis into the joint. You do not think about it in advance, but when you plunge into the topic and learn about possible complications, you understand how important it is to exclude the possibility of infections.
Summing up, I will say that the video reviews were not deceived, the choice was correct, and the result corresponds to expectations.

The patient was treated of prostate cancer

Looking back on the past life, I can say that I did not go to doctors regularly. I thought this: the disease itself came, she herself will leave. Only sometimes I went on an ECG, because at the age of twelve I suffered myocarditis. And since I worked very hard for many years, I can say that I worked as a "slave on galleys," I always stopped near the pharmacy and measured the pressure. My wife and I have a very happy family life and I was worried that one day a love relationship could be misfired. For this reason, I underwent routine prophylactic examinations of the prostate.

In 2001 I retired. At the insistence of my wife, I went to the examination. Frequent urination, which worried me a bit, I explained by the supercooling of the bladder. In the course of the survey, among others, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) was determined. In December 2001, it was: 3.1 μg / l. I was told that there was nothing to worry about. But I did not relax and (together with my wife!) With some skepticism found on the Internet a lot of information regarding the prostate and began to regularly (on a fee basis) determine my PSA.

After a year, he was 4.2. After another 8 months, 5.0 μg / l. Then he froze for a while. In 2005, he again crawled up from 5.5, bypassing 7.0, and amounted to 10.1 mkg / l in December 2005. At the end of January I had to do a biopsy. Out of 12 samples, tissues 2 were positive. For me it was not a surprise, but, as they say, hope dies last. The biopsy did not seem to me painful, although somewhat unpleasant. As it seems to me, it is not necessary to be afraid of it. Already in mid-January, I was internally prepared for a serious test called "prostate carcinoma". At the same time, my wife learned about the event held by the self-help group on the topic "Prostate". At this event, the professor, MD, A. Böhle should make a report on the high degree of risk in the prostate and about brachytherapy, which I already knew from the Internet. In this event my wife and I took part. Professor A. Böhle answered our questions with exhaustive answers. I felt psychologically well prepared to hear the "fatal news" from the results of a biopsy. Our solution, i.e. not mine, but the decision taken by my wife and myself, in case of passing a serious test, was taken in advance.

To conduct brachytherapy by Professor Böhle at the HELIOS hospital named after Agnes Karl in Bad Schwartau, I was assigned the day of the operation in May 2006. In 14 days the wedding of our youngest daughter was due. I so wanted to be in shape again to this day. Preliminary examinations that were usual for such a case were completed. It was found out that I also have an enlarged prostate, the so-called benign prostatic hyperplasia, and it needs to be reduced (with the help of medications) before the operation.

Brachytherapy went according to plan: I was implanted 81 micro-source of radioactive radiation (the so-called "Seeds"). After 2 days I was at home, finished the remaining work in the garden and started preparing for the wedding together with my wife. As expected, the wedding sang and danced until the morning. I well endured this holiday, although I had to put up with side effects (frequent urge to urinate and frequent urination). Over time, erectile dysfunction arose. To eliminate it, I take tablets, so-called, PD 5- inhibitors.

Almost 3 years have passed since the brachytherapy. I can say that I feel well, there was no recurrence of cancer. From the perspective of today, I consider brachytherapy to be one of the best and most sparing methods of treating prostate carcinoma. However, I recommend that every man undergo preventive examinations, and in addition to them at regular intervals determine the value of PSA. It, although it is not a tumor marker, but it should be considered as a very important medical parameter. When complaints about the condition of the bladder and prostate should be addressed in time to the urologist. I confess, I, perhaps, long delayed. Perhaps I would have created more favorable medical conditions for brachytherapy, for example, fewer micro sources of "Seeds". But, as they say, to know where to fall, there would straws and podstelil. A spouse or spouse should also be publicly informed about changes in the health sphere that have a negative impact or can affect the sexual life. In my opinion, this will have a positive impact on the strengthening of mutual trust and mutual consent. However, medical measures aimed at treating the disease as such, such as cancer, must always be in the center of attention.
