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 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 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 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

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 of pulmonary hypertension

The doctor was not competent in my illness. There was an oblique cardiologist. The coordinator promised a super test for my illness, but this examination was not. The doctor asked Vapros why I came to visit. Nobody passed the history of my illness into the clinics to the coordinators. I waited for a meeting with the doctor for more than 1.5 hours that I was scheduled for an appointment at 9:30 am. The examinations were done by themselves that they do in any wedge. There was even a blood test in the wedge.

The patient was treated of coxarthrosis

I wanted to mention separately the responsive employee who helped everyone in everything and everywhere, without leaving a single question without attention - Varvara Avotinsh (if I do not confuse her last name). The Germans, of course, great. In this clinic, they don’t take it for sure. A couple of weeks after discharge, I received a final bill in which I was informed that there was a balance following the expenses, and it turned out to be not small)) of course, I was very bribed. Besides the fact that the operation, ugh, ugh was successful, and the recovery is fast, I made sure that money in this clinic is not put in the first place. In general, I am not afraid to recommend. Well, at least that hip arthroplasty can be trusted to Dr. Kraft.

The patient was treated of cancer of the trachea

My father (67 years old) in June-July 2013 was treated in Solingen, in Stadtisches Klinikum. The diagnosis is cancer of the trachea with metastases in the lungs. A tumor in the trachea was detected in September 2015. She was refused treatment at the 62nd hospital, in fact. So we ended up in Germany.
During the first (week) visit, a general examination was conducted. The operation had to be abandoned for medical reasons.
Unfortunately, the set of further options was not very large. The case was taken to a hospital consultation. A combination of tumor irradiation and treatment with "antibodies" was suggested. This method of treatment for some reason is practically not used in Russia (at least, it was not possible to find it on the sites of the main Russian cancer centers).
At the clinic there is a decent and inexpensive hostel where you can stop and from where you can go to the procedures (irradiation and droppers).
There is a feeling that the treatment worked. The control tomography is planned in early September in Moscow. The results will be sent to Germany, we hope for the best.

The patient was treated of brain cancer

Appealed to Bukimed after her husband refused a doctor in Israel. He has a relapse of the brain tumor. Very quickly and clearly the staff picked up another doctor, a clinic in Germany. Proposed options to choose from. Everything is very clear and professional very quickly. I want to say a big thank you to Ekaterina Kochergan and Maria and Alexandra from the international office of the Solingen clinic. After different experience of treatment in Israel, communication and work with these people gave pleasure. Thank you for being and continue in the same spirit !.

The patient was treated in this clinic

I wanted to share my experience of the survey in Germany, if more precisely, at the Solingen Clinic.
The wife has transferred 2 operations on a stomach, resection on B-II after have altered on B-I. We continued to accompany ourselves for a long time, because doctors did not want to take us for a walk or let us circle. We go around a lot of clinics in Kiev and did not find doctors who were ready to deal with the condition of the body, diagnose and offer a treatment regimen.
After much thought, they decided to apply through the Bookimed site. Manager Ekaterina helped to select a clinic and doctors, with specialization applied to our case. We were offered a personal system of body examination (for gastroenterology). In the Solingen clinic, an international office in the person of Marina and Alexandra, provided the necessary assistance in negotiations with doctors and helped resolve all issues that we had.
We expected that we would come, and everything would revolve around us (to examine, do something, advise, treat). But medicine in Germany is a little different, it needed to be ready and we had to learn it on the go. We were listened to, the professor on the basis of ours appointed a survey, tests, consultations of other doctors and what he considered necessary for our diagnosis. Frankly, with such thoroughness and so meticulously (in the good sense of the word) we were never examined. During the examination, doctors excluded anomalies that could form in the body (tumors, improperly performed operations, a violation of the body's physiology, adhesions). After the examination, medical treatment was started. Preparations are selected by adding or removing one tablet and controlling the condition of the body.
Separately I want to note the care of medical personnel, from nurses to doctors, comfort and warmth - all for the patient.
After the examination in Germany, the international office, translated the documents for Ukrainian doctors and provided survey protocols, both in German and in Russian, CD-ROMs with the results of the surveys.
To sum up, I will say: if you want to examine the body and understand what to do next, I recommend Germany and the Solingen clinic. In the person of the medical staff of the clinic and employees of the international office you will find - sensitivity, understanding and desire to help. Doctors treat each patient equally well and at the highest professional level, every professional and in his place.
We have a positive impression of Germany and the Solingen clinic, German doctors and everyone who helped us and actively participated in solving various issues. I also recommend finding time and looking at Germany itself - it's very interesting and allows you to get an easier examination and treatment.
We consider that the trip costed those forces, money and the result that we received.

The patient was treated of hip fracture

With a calm heart I can recommend the orthopedic department of the city clinical clinic in Solingen and especially its head prof. Floating. The situation before going to the clinic was critical. In Russia they refused to treat, all previous operations failed. During the therapy I was in good hands. Assistance was provided at any time of the day. All problems were solved quickly and competently. After a short enough time after the operation, I feel better, and I owe this not only to the professionalism of the doctors but also to the high level of organization of this trip. Very satisfied. Many thanks to all!

My worries about the language barrier were in vain. Alexandra translated high-level not only the semantic ligament, but she managed to convey the attitude of the doctors. Mom was accompanied and helped with the passage of examinations and analyzes. We were very satisfied and thanked all those who provided support during the diagnosis.

The patient was treated of parkinson"s disease

I learned about the clinic from my friend, who was treating epilepsy there with her son five years ago, after a single attack in the clinic. The child returned to normal life. I went to the clinic with a diagnosis of my son's parkinson. We conducted a checkup at the clinic to confirm the diagnosis. In the shortest time - 5 days of inpatient stay, we had a complete clinical and laboratory study, necessary for diagnosis and treatment. Yes, unfortunately, for today this disease is indistinguishable, but it is possible to improve the quality of life with the help of correctly selected therapy. We were offered treatment with drugs, which I, as a doctor, did not even hear in Russia. Ochenb was impressed by the organization of work in the clinic: quickly, clearly and without unnecessary words. I was placed with my son in one ward, we advise him. department, professor. It should be noted that all the research conducted in the clinic, meet all world standards (this I can evaluate, again, as a doctor). And also we were impressed by the very good-natured attitude of the medical staff to us, from the nurse to the chief doctor. Thanks to the great Bookimed and coordinator Marne Pastukhova for help in organizing the survey at the University Clinic of Freiburg. Remained very satisfied!

There was an accident in Germany! and came out so. What did I get to the hospital? I received a hemothorax lung injury (lung injury) and a break of the trapezoidal (dorsal) muscles from the right side. He was in the office of Robert-Koch-Klinik. Care and attention are excellent. I stayed 13 days. For the operation (cleaning of the lung), I was given an invoice amounting to 10 842 EURO. I did not know nem.yazyka.Poetomu could not tell anyone what's bothering me. In this regard, I have complications with health. Headache. Noise in ears. And the general decline of forces. And every day it gets worse. I do not know how it ends. Our doctors only shrug their shoulders! Not knowing the German, there can not be treated. A translator is not provided!
