The patient was treated of melanoma

I want to thank from the bottom of my heart your company, and in particular a very competent and qualified coordinator-Soyak Alionu for help and advice provided in the process of selecting and treating liver melanoma. Having chosen the country of India and the Global Hospital, we received a consultation and made a diagnosis, thanks to which the oncologist, our doctor, picked up an innovative drug that gave us hope for recovery. We have a diagnosis of grade 4 melanoma of the liver and lung. After returning from India, we undergo further treatment in Ukraine. Believe miracles happen, do not miss your chance, contact Bookimed and they will do their best that you are healthy. RS We are very grateful to Alyona, for helping us in everything from uploading documents to the site and ending with the purchase of tickets for the plane. She worked with us 24 hours a day and if not for her help with our medicine in Ukraine there would be no hope.

The patient was treated of bladder cancer

The clinic, in the category "like - do not like", I can not evaluate. Meeting at the airport with an interpreter and transfer to the clinic - standard. Accommodation in the guest house, before the operation, leaves much to be desired. But, who is familiar with India, I do not think for special comfort and does not count, otherwise - to Germany. Immediately the next morning, without delay and delay, a primary appointment with doctors and diagnosis. Prices for a visit from doctors, examinations and tests are very reasonable, commensurate with Moscow or, even lower. Communication with doctors through an interpreter is somewhat difficult, but quite informative and understandable. Knowledge of English will remove all embarrassment, but in general - not critical. The attitude of doctors to the examination and refinement of the diagnosis is "meticulous". After five days - a summary and proposal for a treatment program. Hospitalization, surgery, 3 days in the intensive care unit and postoperative placement in a two-bed room (together with an attendant) for 12 days. And an extract. The level of training, skill and attitude of doctors, from my "ambitious" point of view of the accompanying person, is beyond praise !!! About the surgeon who performed the operation - DR. MURUGANANDHAM K, I want to say that he has "golden hands and heart" !!! The attitude of the average medical personnel, despite the language difficulties, is very friendly. In the intensive care unit was invited immediately after the operation and "woke up" the patient with me. Opening his eyes and seeing his native face after anesthesia - a person "comes alive"! Postoperative treatment and care in the ward are very worthy. Having repeated his own experience in hospitalization, I can not even compare. The account is not in our favor. In fact, treatment in the clinic saved life! This is especially evident now, a year after the treatment. A year ago, options were considered: Germany, Israel and India. In terms of price-quality ratio and recall of acquaintances have chosen treatment in India. And they were not mistaken. The clinic was selected by specialists of the site en.bookimed.com. They also provided a correlation and communication with the clinic. Huge thanks to them !!!

The patient was treated of epilepsy

I am 63 years old, at home, in Kazakhstan I was diagnosed with "epilepsy". Every 20 days I had seizures. We do not have an epileptologist at home. Then, with the help of Bookimed, thanks to Alina Honest, who advised Dr. Antonio Russi and the clinic Tecnon. All the time she accompanied us with consultations, contacted the clinic in Spain, in particular with Dr. Antonio Russi. I was in the clinic of Technon (Spain) in October 2017, Dr. Antonio Russi only flew from the conference, and immediately, almost from the plane, visited us. We talked about everything and agreed to start the diagnosis in the morning. In the morning he explained the whole procedure. We have undergone MRI, EEG, PET, PET (FDG), etc. Always answered all the questions posed clearly and grammatically. During the PEP we were picked up by pills, we tried 9 different drugs, of which 2 came up to us. Now I take these pills at home. In general, while in the clinic, everything was at the highest level: service, and so on. Even after diagnosis he contacts me via Skype, asks questions, gives advice, answers questions. I express huge gratitude to Doctor Antonio Russi, he is a doctor from God, a real professional! Coryphaeus of his work! Health to him and his family, happiness, success. With the help of his technique and selection of the right drugs, there are practically no seizures. I advise everyone to contact him.

Ms. Liza Dudnik from bookimed reacted very fast and was very very involved from the beginning. She was in constant touch with us all the time, even during her holidays. Teknon Centre is one of the best when we think about medical equipment, service, doctors and the atmosphere there. Cleanliness deserves for 5 stars. Dr. Antonio Russi and his team very involved with the study and very helpful when something happens. The nurses were treating my son as their own and thanks to them my son was not feeling as being during the hospitalization. Everybody, there was taking care of my son with great care, patience, and enormous kindness. And finally....what's the most important in this "diamond frame" - the diagnostic of my son is the best. My son's diagnosis is very clear. My son has been examined so thoroughly that the clinics in Germany (where my son is being treated) could not make such a clear diagnosis. It is thanks to the world's best medical equipment, in which the clinic is equipped and a well-trained team of doctors. Everything that has been included in this "diamond frame" deserves the highest rating of customer satisfaction. Nothing, absolutely nothing, does not remain here without a shadow of a doubt.

  • Parkinson’s disease
  • essential tremor
  • dystonia
  • epilepsy
  • obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Tourette syndrome
  • depression.

Nowadays the DBS procedure is the most efficient treatment method for Parkinson’s disease.

DBS system consists of three leading components: the leading wire (electrode), extender and brain stimulator. All the components, anesthesia, blood products, and other consumables are included into the Deep Brain Stimulation procedure cost.
Thin electrodes are inserted into the brain through small orifice with following deep structures stimulation by means of brain stimulator. The device is fixed under the skin in the chest area. The electrodes are connected to the stimulator by extension cord, which is held under the skin.

Deep Brain Stimulation system

Electrodes and brain pacemaker connection scheme

Clinics specialized in neurosurgery and Deep Brain Stimulation provide the operation with 100% accuracy and effectiveness.

Deep Brain Stimulation FDA approval

Deep Brain Stimulation surgery is approved by American Food and Drug Administration (FDA)*:

  • in 1997 - for Parkinson's disease and essential tremor treatment
  • in 2003 - for dystonia treatment
  • in 2009 - for OCD
  • in 2016 - for the earlier stages of Parkinson's
  • in 2016 - for dystonia in pediatric patients.

*FDA responses for protecting public health and ensures the principles of safety and security of medical devices, drugs and products.

Deep Brain Stimulation success rate, risks

Indications and contraindications for DBS surgery

Indications for DBS procedure (on the example of Parkinson’s disease):

  • Medications are non-effective;
  • Severe tremor and motor disturbance;
  • Painful dystonia;
  • Allergy or strong side effects after administration of medications.

There are no severe contraindications for DBS providing, however some relative ones could make the surgery or preparation for surgery more difficult, including:

  • patient is older than 75;
  • simultaneous thermoradiotherapy;
  • immunological suppression;
  • brain atrophy;
  • some psychological disorders, mental disability.

Preparation for DBS surgery procedure

Before DBS operation providing, a patient should undergo the following diagnostics:

  • examination by neurologist/neurosurgeon;
  • complete blood count;
  • ECG;
  • electromyography;
  • EEG;
  • MRI.

During the examination, the doctor clarifies whether patient has any allergic reaction on medications and anesthesia.

  • In the week leading up to the surgery, a patient is forbidden to take any anti-inflammatory agents.
  • Moreover, a patient is forbidden to smoke and take alcohol 1 week to and 2 weeks after the surgery, as this could cause bleeding. It’s also prohibited to eat and take any medications right before the surgery.
  • Patients should come to the hospital 2 hours before the surgery to finish with all written arrangements and be briefed on anesthesia effect and possible risks.

Process of the DBS operation

Deep Brain Stimulation surgery for Parkinson’s takes from 5 to 7 hours.

The operation is carried out by the team of at least 5 specialists: neurosurgeon, anesthesiologist, radiation therapist, neurologist, psychiatrist, who control functional abilities of the brain for maximum accurate impact on the zone of stimulation.

Stage 1. At the time of the operation a patient is under local anaesthesia, but remains awake. This is a mandatory requirement, as far as he/she is asked to move the extremities, fingers, eyes, or to say anything - to check and make sure electrodes do not stimulate off-target brain areas. All the impulses - firstly from the brain into the recorded device, and then vice versa - are transferred as structural information into the monitor. Data are processed in real time, which helps to adjust the device simultaneously. The orifice is closed with lead, surgery area is stitched.

Stage 2. After the electrodes adjustment, the temporary device is changed into constant brain stimulator.

DBS movement

When a patient is moving his hand, the doctor is adjusting the brain stimulator parameters

During DBS surgery the brain feels no pain, so a patient doesn’t feel any discomfort.

What happens after the surgery?

Patient feels the improvement in first hours after the surgery performing. The trembling in extremities disappears, movement coordination and speech articulation are renewed. Few days after the surgery sleeping and general health condition become better, pain is gone.

Patient after DBS

After the DBS surgery a patient with Parkinson’s disease is easily repeating the moves of the neurologist

Patient stays in the hospital for a week to adjust all the settings of the temporary device, afterwards the constant device is put into the chest or the abdomen of a patient.

Every 3 weeks after the procedure a patient is recommended to appoint neurologist to check the settings of the brain stimulator. 3-4 visits are required in general.

After the final neurostimulator programming, patient can control the parameters by him/herself, choosing the pre-installed regimes. As a rule, brain stimulator works 24h. There are different types of the neurostimulator devices: with battery and accumulator. Accumulator charge is 12-14 days, the total charge cycle is 1-2h.

Cell phones, beepers, microwave ovens, electromagnetic sensors do not affect brain stimulator.

Deep brain stimulator

Brain pacemaker is a small and sealed device containing a battery and electronics. It is placed into the patient’s chest or the abdomen. Its size is not bigger than heart pacemaker. DBS battery in general lasts 3-5 years. However, the service life depends on the settings and may be 1.5 and 9 years as well.

The deep brain stimulator can be rechargeable and non-rechargeable. This characteristic of DBS battery affects brain pacemaker cost and deep brain stimulation surgery cost correspondingly.

A treating doctor will turn on the pacemaker with a wireless device (clinician programmer) and set up the programming sessions individual for the patient's symptoms relieving with minimum side effects. The procedure of setting can take a couple of hours.

Additional facts on brain pacemaker:

  • DBS stimulator activates the metal detector at the airport. All you need to do - show your card about the brain stimulator.
  • A person can have simultaneously neurostimulator and a cardiac pacemaker.
  • Neurostimulator should be on at any time, even when a patient goes to sleep.

Deep Brain Stimulation reviews

I made the decision of DBS providing by myself. My family gave me a support. The scariest thing for me was to become bedridden for the rest of my life. The surgery lasted for 7 hours and I remember everything, especially when they said they found the spot and everything would be great.

I married last year, now I have a child. It gave a second chance at life.

Jeff, the patient with dystonia from the USA

I first found out my tremor in the gym. I was shocked as I was so young. I woke up one day and realized I couldn't do it any more. The disease takes from you little by little who you are. I got tired very easily, I became slower. The doses of medications became higher and higher. I couldn't drive any more. And it became worse with time. DBS therapy changed me. It's unbelievable experience.
Thank God I live in a time for this kind of technology.

Kasandra, the patient with Parkinson’s disease from Italy

Deep Brain Stimulation - FAQs

  • Does DBS mean craniotomy?

No, all the manipulations are made through small orifices (the size of the orifice depends on the neurostimulator device, qualification and experience of neurosurgeon).

  • Is the surgery provided under local or general anesthesia?

The first stage - electrodes insertion - of the surgery is provided under local anesthesia. The second - constant stimulator putting is performed under general anesthesia.

  • What complications could appear during and after the surgery?

There are some possible complication that could arise during and after the Deep Brain Stimulation procedure: brain hemorrhage, infection, reaction to anesthesia. However, these conditions are rare and make out less than 1%.

  • What is the prognosis after DBS?

Most of the patients still need to take medications after DBS procedure, however in much smaller quantity which significantly lowers the medication side effects (incl. dyskinesis - notwilled movement, caused by longstanding medication taking). More than 70% of people feel a compelling improvement of tremor, movement slowness, rigidity, walking and balance problems as well.

  • What to do if battery of a deep brain stimulator runs out?

Neurostimulator is replaced surgically, leads and extensions of the system are stayed in place.

  • Do I need DBS operation on one side or both sides of the brain?

Deep Brain Surgery operation on one side is required to help symptoms on the opposite side of the body. Deep Brain Surgery procedure on two sides is recommended to provide improvement in motor function, especially if a patient has significant symptoms on both sides of the body.
In many clinics doctors firstly implant DBS lead on one side, adjust the setting and in a follow-up measure whether a patient needs a second DBS lead or not.

  • Do I need to take medications after DBS procedure?

DBS reduces total medication dose by 30-50% and spread the intervals, but does not substitute medication therapy.

  • Can DBS not work?

This option is possible and can happen because of improper patient selection, problems during the surgery, problems with the programming, disease progression. To avoid unnecessary risks, it's important to choose a center with experienced in DBS providing team.

TED Talk on DBS procedure

DBS research

For the mid 2017 Deep Brain Stimulation procedure has been a subject of various studies in terms of using the procedure to treat other diseases and mental conditions.

DBS operation has been considering as a method for Alzheimer's patients. Early studies have shown positive results, still some ethical issues remain. Research team of University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine is working on the solutions.

In American National Institute of Neurological Disease and Stroke and Institute of Mental Health the scientists have been investigating nonivasive DBS method - placing the electrodes on the scalp and not in the brain. The method was tested on mice and has been expecting a new stage of the study.

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!

The patient was treated of hemorrhagic vasculitis

I want to express my great gratitude to the coordinating doctor Katya Bonko, I could not say that I was not more attentive and responsive, a competent doctor !!! She felt at a distance that she was worried about me ... My daughter in Russia had hemorrhagic vasculitis mixed, planted for three years on the strictest diet, limited the active child in everything! In short, on their recommendation, I should have put the child in a flask! Where I just did not apply in Russia, but for some reason this diagnosis frightened everyone! Upset I began to search the Internet for answers to my questions and came across Bookimed ... I decided to fill out a questionnaire! Katia immediately contacted me! Having listened to everything that disturbs me, she quickly picked up the Medicalpark clinic and recommended to us a wonderful (as it turned out) Dr. Aysha children's rheumatologist !!! On the very first day of our arrival, we were taken to the clinic to see a doctor. This day for my child was one of the happiest! She lifted all restrictions !!! Our happiness was beyond limit !!! Quickly passed the examination. Said the child is healthy, live a full life! We were given a responsible, good interpreter !!! Thanks to the organizer Aigul, immediately responded and solved the problems (although there were practically no problems, only the language barrier

The patient was treated of glioblastoma

The clinic is a new, very comfortable stay. From the administration to the orderly in the office, everyone is very friendly and ready to help at any time of the day. We were very lucky, because he treated us and still remains our doctor, the best neurosurgeon Serdar Baki Albayrak !!! He is not just a surgeon, he is a healer !!!! So, as we have experience of treatment in another country and have something to compare .. I can definitely say that Medicalpark is a very good Clinic. And I advise with great pleasure and will advise it.

The patient was treated in this clinic

We were diagnosed in Medical Park. We paid attention to the high level of medicine in Turkey and modern equipment, which is important for the correct diagnosis. The diagnosis was made in Kiev. The friendly attitude of the medical staff of the clinic, the round-the-clock support and assistance of Bookimed coordinator Lisa Dudnik, the support of the coordinators of the clinic made our stay at the clinic comfortable. The attending physician Veysel Kydyr helps us in correction of treatment and after returning home. Many thanks to Bookimed for the work done. The trip gave a positive result. We have a wish - clinic to make translations of medical documentation in a shorter period, and our medicine to rise to such a level that our loved ones receive medical care at the proper level in their country.

The patient was treated of breast cancer

Because I know how difficult it is to make choices and remove unnecessary emotions, especially when it comes to health, especially when it's not just about yours. In April I chose where to make a PET CT analysis for my mother, who had completed 25 chemistries, and at the same time wanted to choose a place where she would check herself. Closer to 30, you understand that "less you know - better sleep" does not always work in the field of your own health or your loved ones. I knew about Bukimed from my comrades, this time I tried on myself. I will thank you for your patience and steadfastness in the list of questions that I asked our coordinator - Konstantin. You understand that at some moments you're meticulous, but it's all important for a comfortable passage not the most enjoyable journey. We went through all the procedures in the clinic of Anadol, near Istanbul. Meet, transfer to the hotel, and from there to the hospital - for free and almost as clearly as possible in Turkey. The reasons for choosing this place: quick access from Kharkov, more affordable price in comparison with Europe, the opportunity to undergo examinations for mom, and me. Of the pros, for a reasonable price (check up cost ~ 600 ye), you went through most important doctors in 1.5 days, passed a number of important tests and the next day received information from the therapist about what and how. I hope for the professionalism and quality of the equipment, so that the data are 100% correct. Of the big drawbacks: everything is not on schedule, the host party is trying to catch the maximum flow of "tourists", so get ready to wait 2-3 hours from the appointed time. NOT all doctors - luminaries and "picking" deep into the question, so, unfortunately, were and are everywhere. Therefore, if you eat with an important and extremely decisive question, try to check that all your questions and documents are studied and passed on to specialists. We had a failure with this. In general, this experience is less stressful than the Ukrainian version, the feeling that you are going for the features of your side, a pleasant climate - allows you to relax a little and add a good mood for important things!

I am very happy with the treatment I've so far received at Bumrungrad International Hospital. Beginning last year, I've made three separate visits for treatment at the hospital. The staff are extremely professional and efficient using very modern equipment. The cost of treatment is competitive. I would strongly recommend it to other people looking for medical care.

The patient was treated of prostatitis

Dr. Gross was amazing and our medical coordinator was very helpful. We received all the information requested prior to the consultation and Dr. Gross is truly a leading urologist, an expert passionate about his job. We travelled from Romania to Germany and we were very pleasantly surprised about the quality of their services.

The patient was treated of epilepsy

Ms. Liza Dudnik from bookimed reacted very fast and was very very involved from the beginning. She was in constant touch with us all the time, even during her holidays. Teknon Centre is one of the best when we think about medical equipment, service, doctors and the atmosphere there. Cleanliness deserves for 5 stars. Dr. Antonio Russi and his team very involved with the study and very helpful when something happens. The nurses were treating my son as their own and thanks to them my son was not feeling as being during the hospitalization. Everybody, there was taking care of my son with great care, patience, and enormous kindness. And finally....what's the most important in this "diamond frame" - the diagnostic of my son is the best. My son's diagnosis is very clear. My son has been examined so thoroughly that the clinics in Germany (where my son is being treated) could not make such a clear diagnosis. It is thanks to the world's best medical equipment, in which the clinic is equipped and a well-trained team of doctors. Everything that has been included in this "diamond frame" deserves the highest rating of customer satisfaction. Nothing, absolutely nothing, does not remain here without a shadow of a doubt.

The patient was treated of stomach cancer

Hello! My dad was diagnosed with a diagnosis in the clinic: adenomatic stomach carcinoma of the 3rd stage. Doctors, nurses and accompanying personnel are qualified professionals, very attentive! All procedures are made as necessary, and not for profit. The only thing that is embarrassing is the menu for people without a stomach. (They gave it hot and fried) Accompanying company takes you from the airport on the day of arrival to the airport on the day of departure. In general, from the time of the first call to today, everyone is happy! I advise everyone here to contact!
