The patient was treated of parathyroid adenoma

Despite us thoroughly pre-screening several hospitals and all looking good on paper and the website of this one our experience locally was just terrible! Waiting in the queue with dozens of other customers for an hour just to be registered... Interpreter who we did not order but had to pay for her services. However, the climax of all the process was the diagnostics and consultation with the doctor for which we paid 550Euro and then had to wait for nearly 10 days for the official report when it was promised to be delivered to us next day! Local coordinator Alexandra Zinnemann despite being the focal point just moved away from solving any issues blaming her other colleagues! Stay away!!! Not going to recommend to any of my friends in the future this clinics!
Reply from Team of International Office at Clinics Solingen:
"Dear Airat,

first of all, allow us to thank you for this very detailed and emotional feedback. We always take criticism very serious, since this helps our clinic to develop. We are really sorry that you had to wait for Prof. Sesterhenn despite having an appointment for a fixed time. Unfortunately, sometimes the circumstances in a hospital lead to a situation, in which the doctor has to participate in urgent unexpected surgery.

Prof. Sesterhenn has performed a comprehensive analysis and has discussed the results with the patient in detail. He has also orally answered all your questions. A written conclusion, however, is usually prepared within several working days thereafter. This is a standardized process: professor records his conclusion on tape; after that, his secretary prepares the document, which is again reviewed and signed by the professor. Only after this, a written conclusion can be handed out to patient.

We wish you good health, and all the best for the future.

Sincerely yours,
Team of International Office at Clinics Solingen"

The hospital was good , and I liked the how you feel like there is always support when you need specially when you are travelling to aplace where you know no one . Diana was always in reach when I needed something during the prep phase , and Olena was very supportive during the stay . however I think that its better to arrange appointments with doctor at least 30 min meetings before travelling to have some arrangements done with the doctor before travelling . regards

Brain cancer symptoms

Malignant brain tumors are diagnosed in 2% of all cancer cases. Symptoms of brain cancer are very different and can vary depending on location of tumor. They can appear in case of damaging nervous structural elements of brain caused by pressure of a tumor. Among them are:

  • Headache is the most often detected symptom in case of brain cancer. Its nature depends on location of tumor;
  • Nausea and vomiting are frequent satellites of brain cancer;
  • Intellectual disorders: memory impairment, problems with attention concentrating;
  • Large volume formations are followed by nystagmus («wall-eye») and other neurological manifestations (the tumor compresses on the corresponding parts of the brain);
  • Periodic convulsions that look like epileptic;
  • Brain hemorrhage (typical for late-stage cancer) can lead to a cerebrovascular accident;
  • Some tumors provoke meningoencephalitis. It manifested in the form of severe headaches, stiffness (tension) neck, seizures, burning sensation in the head.

Brain cancer diagnostics in Germany

Primary brain cancer is quite rare. As a rule, we are talking about the metastasis from other organs or systems. German diagnosticians are known by their precise search of the primary focus of the tumor. This explains the low incidence of recurrence after the treatment of brain cancer in Germany.

The main diagnostic methods in Germany are:

  • MRI (priority method), CT with contrast agent;
  • PET-CT;
  • Magnetic encephalography;
  • Puncture with cerebrospinal fluid tap (to define abnormal cells and composition);
  • Biopsy, including stereotactic.
  • Peculiarities of brain cancer treatment in Germany

    German clinics are leading ones in the statistics of successful surgeries on the brain. Cutting-edge equipment allows neurosurgeons removing the tumors without trepanning (endoscopically). Radiosurgical techniques are used to eliminate small foci without penetration into the cranial cavity.

    Circumscribed tumors (at the stage 1-2A) are removed by the Da Vinci robotic system and other methods:

    • Systems of Gamma Knife: a tumor is «evaporated» by gamma radiation;
    • Endoscopic removal of tumors (microsurgery);
    • Ordinar surgery.

    At the stage 2-3 the treatment additionally involves methods of chemotherapy and radiation exposure:

    • Systemic administration of combinations of cytotoxic drugs (Germany is known for the latest developments in this field).
    • Intra-arterial introduction of suppressing tumor growth drugs.
    • Radiation therapy is used when metastases are detected, or to prevent cases of recurrence.

    The stage 4 of cancer involves palliative manipulation which improves quality of life.

    Cost of brain cancer treatment in Germany

    Treatment of brain cancer in Germany is more expensive than in other European countries, but it is more affordable than in the USA. At the same time in terms of the effectiveness of treatment for many years Germany heads the medical tourism market. There are other advantages of the treatment of brain cancer in Germany:

    • Germany has one of the best survival rates over the world. That is why patients avoid additional payments in future and reduce their life risk. German doctors are ready to take patients with cancer, who have got denial of treatment in domestic hospitals.
    • Comfortable conditions of staying and high level of service.
    • By virtue of Bookimed, patients from around the world have the unique opportunity to receive treatment in German clinics at fair and objective prices, avoiding additional charges to intermediaries.

    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.

    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.
