Hello, friends! I want to tell you about the rehabilitation center "Zentrum der Rehabilitation" in the city of Pforzheim, to which I dreamed to get already for a year and now my dream came true, I'm here. My diagnosis: complete sensory-motor paraplegia from vertebra TH3. As a result of the removal of the structure from the spine in Kiev, which I repeatedly broke down, I stopped walking. I have been in a wheelchair for 4 years already. Immediately, as we drove into the center (I arrived with my mother) was struck by the cleanliness, silence, comfort. We immediately met the administrator of the center, showed us our number and told me what is waiting for me in the next 3 months. Since we arrived on Sunday, the administrator came especially for us, to show us everything and to settle us. It was really nice, because the excitement was present. From the very beginning, when we wanted to turn to the center for help, we understood that we should communicate there in German, but everything turned out to be much simpler, because in the center you can communicate and solve all the problems in Russian because there is a coordinator in the center Irina , which always helped us. We solved the documents, all issues and problems with it. This at times reduced our difficulties in this initial stage. Still, Irina constantly supports us on the spot, if something needs to be translated, something to help, she will always come to our rescue. If there is such a need, the patients are met and taken to the airport. The room in which we live is equipped with a small kitchen, a stove, where you can cook yourself. At the expense of washing, all the things that you need to wash we give and we are washed. Room cleaning takes place every day, everything is cleaned. The rooms are always clean. With this problem is also not. Around the center and in the very center everything is adapted for wheelchairs and for the month that I am already here I did not need the help of others. I overcome everything myself. Elevators, ramps, congresses, arrivals are everywhere, including in the city of Pforzheim itself. For the weekend, I usually take an electric stroller, which you can take always and at any time in the center and walk around the city. No difficulties arose. There are shops, a pharmacy nearby, all you need is near the center. Anyone who experiences at the expense of hygiene, any help (if one has arrived), then you will always be helped if you need it. All therapists and employees of the center are very friendly and sincere. So, I'll start with how I started therapy and all the procedures. From the very beginning, I received 2 therapists. I was assigned to a wonderful girl named Saskia. She is fluent in English and has not had any problems with her language. I want to say that even if you do not know German or English very well, therapists will always find a way to explain it to you. That's cool. During this time, you can also learn the language, which we do) For such cases, there is an interpreter Irina, who always comes to the rescue and tells you everything. I was very worried about the first day of therapy, but everything was so nice and sincere that I forgot about my excitement. First I was taken to the Locomotive. Since I first tried to walk on such a device, it was exciting. The staff of the center who put me on Lokomat did everything carefully and carefully. So I went for an hour and overcame the first day of 800 meters. Then I went to therapy. We started with the fact that I got up and stood. Then for 3 hours we performed exercises for all muscle groups. For each individual it is selected individually. I was given therapy at the rate of 3 hours for the beginning, but those who are stronger and stay here more time, they last for 6 hours. At the end of therapy, on the very first day I was put on my feet and said: "Go on!". I tried to walk with the roler from the first day. At once I will say that it is very difficult to work. With therapy here strictly, even if you do not want, you will work! In the halls there is such an atmosphere that you want to work, even if it's very difficult. After therapy, I come to the room and sleep 2 hours tk very tired. Just want to say that it's worth it! For 2 weeks of therapy, I felt like I was stronger and I walk with the roler much more confidently and better. In the center there is still such a walker as "Vector". It helps people walk when they can not keep their body completely. On such a simulator you walk an hour a day. During the training I had a problem with the knee. It was swollen and I could not stand on it. Therapists immediately noticed this problem, called the doctor, he looked and said what to do. I was given a special knee, so that while the knee is weak, I could do without fear of my leg. When I started these problems, every employee of the center approached me and asked: "How is the knee? Is it getting better already? ». It was very nice that everyone worried about me

My name is Vsevolod, I'm 21 years old and I came from Kazakhstan. In August 2014, while swimming in the river, I broke the cervical vertebra c6 and received a spinal cord injury. Immediately after the injury, my legs, body muscles and fingers were denied. After 4.5 months, I arrived at the rehabilitation center in Pforzheim for rehabilitation. Unlike many hospitals, rehabilitation here is quite radical. 5 days a week from 8 am to 2 days you perform various physical exercises. Most exercises are performed either sitting or standing, which positively affects your blood circulation. If you can not stand, the therapists hold your legs, so that they too have a load. Also every day Lokomat. All therapists have an individual approach, which creates a kind of constant dialogue between you, your muscles and therapist. After therapy, I feel very tired, so it often happens that I sleep after dinner. After several months of therapy, I noticed a lot of progress in the muscles of the body, I began to change from chair to bed independently, I can sit almost without support, and I myself can perform many more things myself. Very pleased that there is not a hospital environment, but quite ordinary rooms, but adapted for wheelchairs. Recently I have tried hippotherapy (riding a horse). Also there were only positive impressions, besides enormous work of the case, very many good emotions. Of course, there are some domestic difficulties and problems, but in general this rehabilitation center is very like.

I'm 53 years old, I'm from Kazan. In November 2013, I suffered a hemorrhagic stroke. A person who has suffered a stroke begins to look at life with different eyes. It seems to him that life has stopped and nothing can help him to return to his former life. However, everything changed when I in January 2015. arrived rehabilitation center, in Pforzheim in Germany. Care, attention, all this was present in every movement in the person of the specialist of the center, Sarah Felkle who was engaged with me. I felt not only confidence that I would be able to defeat my problems, but I again appreciated and became confident that my life again made sense. The most important thing is to believe and work on your problems, and in this I hope that the staff of the center will help me. I would like to express special gratitude to the translator Irina Feldman who was always near me during the classes and was ready to come to my assistance at any time. Thanks to all the staff of the center for your hard work, patience and love for your patients.

In 2011, we arrived in Germany with a diagnosis of kyphoscoliosis of the 4th degree. The situation in which we were, was very deplorable. We were told that my daughter would no longer walk, that she was doomed to live in a stroller. In Pforzheim Dr. Ryud, who is the chief doctor of this center, did not promise anything and did not tell me what they can. He simply said: "She will walk." Svetlana refused drugs within the first month, six months later - from the catheter, from the first week she was taken to the stairs, after 2 years - we left the stroller completely. Now my daughter is already walking with a wand. I am very grateful to those people who taught my daughter to walk and laugh. Low maternal bow.

Doctor was good, but the agent )Talvin) who arranges the appointment was extremely not professional and had very bad attitude and not straight in term of charges. They charged me €500 for making appointment only. Please avoid them. Really poor customer experience.

The whole experience was excellent! The medical team was extremely professional and Dr.Gross, the urologist I met, gave me several options for treatment and together we decided on a path to take if any of the options fail. He was very clear and understanding, and his english was exceptional. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to get my life back! Dr.Shevchuk was extremely friendly and professional; one of the most caring people I've ever dealt with. She was always ready to help, and even went out of her way to find solutions for me. Dr.Lynnyk was communicating with me regularly and efficiently, making things easier for me during my trip.

The patient was treated of herniated disk

Everything is fine, they arranged a remote consultation to understand whether it is possible to perform an operation. This format is definitely needed, very useful. I can say that the patients would write down all their questions in advance, so that later they would not think that they should ask the doctor, you also need to think in advance what you want in principle from the consultation and then it will definitely be useful.

The patient was treated of multiple sclerosis

The clinic operated on the father (oncology and urology). Excellent chamber, a wonderful surgeon Dr. Wolfgang Dillenburg and head. Department of prof. Edward Becht. Protocol examination on good equipment, friendly doctors, excellent postoperative care. Most of all I was surprised that Prof. Bekht personally made a detour twice a day: in the morning with medical staff, in the afternoon one. But in general, everything is sharpened by a long full life. I am very pleased. What else I liked: the patient is explained everything in detail, offering several ways to solve the problem. It's great!

We first used the services of medicine in Germany. The Nordwest Clinic, like its doctors, has left an exceptionally positive impression. Before the trip, a plan was made for visits to doctors, tests and time of surgery, which was strictly adhered to. The quality of services provided was provided at a high level. We have no comments or complaints. The host in the form of Russian-speaking translators constantly accompanied us at all stages of treatment. Special thanks to Alyona (Bookimed), who promptly and extensively answered any of our questions, which prompted us to decide to use the services of Bookimed.

The patient was treated of brain cyst

I would like to thank the Vookimed international client support center and coordinator Ekaterina for selecting and organizing a consultation at the Nord Alliance clinic. The work was built clearly, efficiently, without exerting any psychological pressure. For all questions of interest to me, Ekaterina provided, at short intervals, the most tactful, detailed documents and payment for services. On one point of joint cooperation they did not mislead me, I received a detailed conclusion and in the clinic itself they also answered all that I was concerned about. On her own research she was convinced that they can be trusted. Once again, thank you so much

I am very grateful to Olga for her help. It promptly and autumn responded to all questions regarding receiving a foreign consultation - sending documents, choosing which clinic and doctor to choose, sharing personal experience, controlling and agreeing on time for consultation and being interested in its results, in general showed full cooperation and interest. Thank you! The consultation itself went well - with the help of an interpreter, all the questions of interest were discussed with the professor from Germany, the main result - the exposure of the fact that the treatment is now proceeding in the right direction, also received from the professor some very important advice that did not appear in the consultations with Ukrainian doctors.
