The patient was treated of liver cancer

We came to Seoul for treatment in the Samsun clinic with a father who was diagnosed with "Education in the liver, a size 5.5 by 5 mm" in Russia. In the Korean clinic, the father underwent a complete examination in 2 days, all in one place, without queue, by appointment and time: CT, MRI, PET, FGDS and colonoscopy with sleeping pills, biopsy of education, oncomarkers, ECG, X-ray. After that he was diagnosed: "Hepatocellular carcinoma without metastases." The father was touched by the caring and careful attitude of the medical staff during the procedures, while everyone was clearly engaged in his own business. With such tumor sizes and with such localization (in the center), usually the surgical method is not shown, radioablation also does not fit, only chemotherapy, to which the tumor is not sensitive. The prognosis was pessimistic, the father's life time was estimated at 2-3 months. But at the consultation of a radiologist, chemotherapist and surgeons, it was decided to carry out the operation, since it was the only chance to survive the patient. They warned his father about the high risk, the technical difficulties of the operation due to the localization and size of the tumor. Father, of course, was in shock, he could not believe that he had a malignant tumor, and that everything was so serious. After all, he did not feel this tumor: he had no pain anywhere, his appetite was normal, he did not lose weight, there was only a small weakness, which he wrote off for age (70 years). This is the cunning of cancer - no symptoms! Only an annual preventive examination from the top to the heel can reveal the cancer at an early stage. We agreed to an operation. Operated by Dr. Kim. The operation lasted 6 hours. Everything went well. Six days after the operation, we flew home. What amazed me about in Korea? When I saw how the healthcare system works in Korea, I immediately relaxed, and I had full confidence in doctors and medical personnel. Everyone clearly did his job. For one nurse 2 patients, she practically did not leave them day and night. I did not have to take care of my father, everything was done by medical staff. It was unusual that relatives were twice a day run to patients in intensive care, and without any shoe covers and masks. But the most amazing thing is that on the second day after such a difficult operation, my father walked around the corridor all day long! Has noted kindness of Koreans, modesty, patience, diligence, the valid relation to the doctor. The doctor said once and everything, no one argues, does not ask again, does not follow him, if there are questions - sign up for a reception and wait. A very clear organization of working time and subordination, and hence culture. I want to thank Dr. Kim again for his golden hands, the doctor who led the first reception, a very intelligent, literate and sincere person. All this time we had a Russian coordinator next to us, who translated, recorded for research, took a doctor, solved our everyday problems, and most importantly - morally supported, all 6 hours while the operation was near me. My father and I are grateful for her professionalism and excellent human qualities. All the issues solved quickly, clearly, without fuss.

The patient was treated of ovarian cancer

By a lucky chance fell into the hands of experienced doctors of the South Korean medical center "Samsung". I was already preparing for an operation in Moscow - I had an ovarian cancer, predictions were 50-50. Our doctors are always afraid to take on extra responsibility for the operation. If something goes wrong in the end, they will refer to the fact that not those 50 percent fell out and that's it. Suddenly it turned out that my father had agreed without my knowledge that I would be put on an operation in the center of Samsung in South Korea. At first I thought I was joking - well, what kind of treatment can there be in the clinic with the name, like a TV set. But Dad insisted that I go there at least for a consultation. It turned out that this is one of the largest medical centers of South Korea with a worldwide reputation. I was examined by doctors from Korea and the United States. They made an impression on me that I can completely entrust my life to them, although I did not always pay much attention to doctors. I'm not talking about the most up-to-date equipment! Korea and in medicine justifies its leadership in the field of world technology. I had a brilliant operation, as I believe. Although for those doctors - it's their usual job. After anesthesia, I did not feel any pain. Postoperative observations showed that the tumor was completely removed. In six months I'll go there again for medical examination. I am absolutely sure that I won this terrible disease with the help of Korean doctors!

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!

I am Zalikhan, mother Jannat, very pleased and very grateful to Professor Bshorer and the medical staff Helios. We had the risk of removing the eye, but the result was pleasantly shocking. The eye was saved, the vision was not disturbed, the tumor was removed, the operation was successful. Many thanks to Prof. Dr. R. Bshorer, a world-famous doctor with golden hands and a kind heart. Jannat was lucky to get to him. May the Almighty protect all children and the sick. Health to all! 8938-8902684 Thanks you! I'm very happy. I haven't sighed like that right now for these 2 years. Everything went, now everything is fine. We are very satisfied and very pleased. Who needs to ask about the details let him communicate by vatsapu. With pleasure I will tell you everything.

The patient was consulted in this clinic

Normal clinic, did not see anything special. They prescribed good medicines, I felt better. There were also very good translators. It is better to always be insured, because if there is insurance, the clinic offers a 50% discount.
