The patient was treated of meniscus tear

Drs seemed very good. The consultation was calm and professional but I was told I would have results within 2 working days. When I didn’t receive any information I returned to the hospital and was told I would be emailed within 24 hours. When that didn’t happen I had to come in again and was hugely surprised by a very rude and impatient receptionist who was dismissive and seemed to want to blame me somehow. She made some very unprofessional comments about me to colleagues in front of other patients when she thought I couldn’t hear. Other staff did their best to help afterwards but considering the money spent and my experience I would not recommend this place at all.

The patient was treated of headache

I had a consultation with Prof. Colombo on the 29th of April. I was complaining of chronic headache for more than one year. The clinic is very organized and the staff are friendly and proffessional. They also asign a doctor that speaks your language to attend with you in case you need any help with communication. Prof. Colombo is very professional, he gave me all the time to ask and discuss with him all what I wanted.
Thanks to Bookimed and Dr. Marian for their recommendation. It really helped me.
I am totally satisfied. I wanted to find a good place specialized in headache treatment and Bookimed helped me find the perfect place.

Oncology Department

Every year, 9,000 cancer patients undergo treatment at the Oncology Department. 6,000 of them have operations on brain tumors removal.

Doctors perform a tomotherapy (a modern type of radiotherapy) for tumors that can respond to this type of treatment. Tomotherapy apparatus destroys formation slice-by-slice minimizing an impact on healthy cells. It allows avoiding such side effects as nausea, severe fatigue, tachycardia.

2,000 patients undergo radiotherapy at the San Raffaele Oncology Department annually.

Why is treatment in San Raffaele effective?

Patients are treated by an interdisciplinary team of doctors. It consists of diagnosticians, medical oncologists, immunologists, surgeons, and radiotherapists. Physicians gather for a consilium to discuss the most complex cancer cases and make an effective treatment plan. As a result, a patient gets the most adequate treatment in his/her case.

Hematology Oncology Department and Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT)

Doctors of the unit specialize in the treatment of patients with blood cancer. They perform a bone marrow transplantation. It is a procedure to renew the blood cells and make them function normally. BMT is applied to treat patients with leukemia, aplastic anemia, multiple myeloma and some kinds of lymphomas.

Physicians of the department provide over 140 bone marrow transplants per year. 60% of them are allogeneic. It means bone marrow cells are taken from a matched non-relative donor. And 40% — autologous BMT, when a donor is a patient him/herself.

Neurosurgical Department

The department possesses 3 operating rooms, one of which has the Gamma Knife. This radiosurgery device treats tumors without skin excision. Since 1994, doctors have been performing more than 10,000 Gamma Knife procedures.

In October 2018, the medical team of San Raffaele performed the world's first surgery to treat spina bifida in the unborn child in the woman's womb. This disorder may lead to heavy complications as neurological diseases or even lower limb paralysis after birth. The doctors Massimo Candiani and Pietro Mortini did a unique operation in an unborn baby at 22 weeks, the surgery lasted more than 2 hours. Source: The Local

Cardiac Surgery Department

Doctors of the unit perform 1,400 heart and 2,000 vessels operations annually.

San Raffaele cardiac surgeons specialize in atrial fibrillation and heart failure treatment. In most cases, they use minimally invasive methods — procedures through small incisions or no incisions at all in case of using a catheter. This approach allows to minimize the recovery period making it easier for a patient.

Gastroenterology Department

2,000 in- and 5,000 outpatients undergo treatment at the Department of Gastroenterology every year.

Doctors of the unit specialize in laparoscopic operations to treat gastrointestinal pathologies. Laparoscopy — a procedure through 3-4 incisions up to 1-3 cm. This operation is less traumatic than the open surgery so a patient recovers faster. He/she doesn't feel much pain in the postoperative period and there are no large scars in the abdomen.

The patient underwent rhinoplasty

Ward was good. As for the doctor, I saw him very little. Consultation took exactly one minute. The anesthesiologist and the head nurse are very pleasant people, smiling, caring and kind. Coordinator Zhenya is also a very good girl. In touch with her so far. Of the minuses- Because of the heavy workload, you have to wait a long time. We waited for the consultation and the dressing and the operation itself. And the house too, until it is free. I cannot say anything about the result of rhinoplasty, too little time has passed. I can say one breath much better. At the expense of the aesthetic side, we will see later.

The patient was treated of arrhythmia

Good day ! After almost half a year I am writing a review. The level and quality of medicine, I can not adequately assess, as I am just a client (someone came up with the name of the patient, which I personally do not like). So, I had an operation. On the heart. The diagnosis was atrial fibrillation. Made an Ablation. How did - I do not know. I hope at the proper level. But! Feedback. This is a conveyor. You with your medical problems / diagnoses get on the conveyor. I do not know whether this is good or bad - but it is. I had a surgery very quickly - for which I am grateful. Further. Extract from the clinic. The doctor had a conversation with me (through an interpreter) for 3 minutes before the operation and 5-10 minutes after the operation (after 2 days of re-discharge). And that's all. My questions are what to do next (what predictions, recommendations, etc. I have not received an answer). The next day (the day of discharge from the clinic), the nurse / doctor’s assistant arrived and presented the discharge report in German. To the question whether it is possible in English, I received the answer that it is possible, but contact the translators. Like this. Still. I waited for more than 2 hours for a prescription for the purchase of medications prescribed to me (for a purchase at pharmacies in Germany). And this after repeated reminders. I have not received any recommendations regarding the observation of the passage / consequences of the operation. As a result, I was forced through the Internet to look for possible subtleties / complications after my operation. Then, after 20 days, I had a relapse - a long-term arrhythmia over the course of 4 days. I found it myself through a Garmin wrist pulse detector. As a result, I bought the device for ECG registration and with the help of it I independently registered this fact of relapse. Further, through the Internet, I realized that it is permissible with my diagnosis for a period of up to 3 months after the operation. Now, six months later (without a week), I have no arrhythmias. It seems that the operation in Hamburg I did right. But the rest ... Another important fact. At the entrance I was promised a price of 22,000 euros with a deposit of 2,000 euros, which is refundable if there are no complications during the operation. So, as of today 2019-05-22, this deposit was not returned to me. Despite the fact that I was very tolerant in this matter - I did not demand, I did not pester ... This is a note for future customers of this clinic. Feel free to write off this amount of the so-called deposit on expenses. Such a marketing course of German clinics. I understand that for me and for the majority of clients of (international) clinics, this 2,000 euros means nothing on the total amount of the costs of treatment and imposes on health ... But... Personally, I do not like it. I have something to compare. In 2007, I was treated in Israel. Result by all parameters 5 +++ Here in Germany at 3 --- I do not take into account the medical aspect - here it is difficult for me to be an adequate evaluator.
