My name is Makpal Turkbaeva. I am writing with Almaty, Kazakhstan. I was lucky five years ago to get into your clinic and have an operation to remove the meningioma in the left temporal parietal part of the most professional neurosurgeon doctor Z. Kohen.
First and foremost, I am very grateful to him, for the fact that he gave me the happiness of having a full healthy life that I now have. And also many thanks to all the medical personnel and the staff of the medical center of Shiba clinic (Tina, Jana, Rina) for responsible work on the patients, for support in the most difficult period of life, for professional organization in hospitalization and treatment, for creating all the conditions of the post-rehabilitation period.
Often people who have health problems come to me with questions about your clinic, and, listening to me, admire you, since my story looks like a fairy tale for them. I, having lived to 30 years old, having a one-year-old son and a pregnancy at 4 months, underwent three operations in Almaty, which followed one after the other, and led to the main cause of my disease - a malignant brain tumor that could only be eliminated from you - so decided my close people. And no matter how complicated the flight to your country was by transit through Istanbul, when I, with a high pressure, a terrible headache, just not lifting my head in the plane, lying on the seats, reached Istanbul, where the airport staff all me was fumbled with a transfer to Tel Aviv, I think that all the bandages wrapped on my body, the stitches after two operations in Almaty, can look like a girl-terrorist.
I just did not understand what was happening to me when I arrived in Israel, I was met by an ambulance car, delivered quickly to the reception point of the Shiba clinic, where, immediately, I was immediately taken for transfusion after dehydration on the flight, and only when I came to, after all the primary examinations at the reception, I was registered.
Many things surprised me in the Shiba clinic: the professional quick reception of the patient, a two-day preparation for the operation (taking tests, examination of doctors), the operation itself 11 hours after which the day came to, the obligatory doctor's request already from the third day after the operation - more to move, not to lie, frequent washing yourself, including the head, which was so strange to me, because it would have been different in my homeland after such a long operation, I probably would have stayed in the hospital for a long time, with a prohibition to swim, etc. Yes, it was amazing when I was discharged on the sixth day after the operation. And a month after the operation, flying home in Almaty, I again returned for laser therapy.
To date, I'm alive and well, all these five years, as it should be with us, was registered with a local oncologist, conscientiously visited neuropathologists and other doctors who with great interest read my extract from Shiba Hospital, where there was a qualified description of the operation performed, and every six months, conducted an MRI of the head, and in each of them, my position is excellent - there is no tumor growth time.
I once again thank your clinic and the most important person who made me happy - Dr. Coyen !!!
