The patient was treated of sarcoma

Faced with serious health problems in May-June 2014 and without full medical assistance in Belarus, I turned to Tel Aviv Medical Center of Suraski.

The first thing that surprised me was that no more than 3 days passed from the moment I placed my application for treatment to the invitation from the center, and a week later I was already in Tel Aviv.

All diagnostic procedures and consultations of experts were appointed in the shortest possible time, which is especially important for medical tourists, because roads are spent every day not at home. And of course, this is the merit of the medical tourism department.

My treatment in Israel took six months. During this time, I had two courses of chemotherapy, two operations, many procedures and consultations, each of which was accompanied by a member of the medical tourism department, providing translation services and simply supporting me at a difficult time for me. During these six months, I had to go to the clinic and in an emergency, and the fact that I was issued directly to the hospital without intermediaries greatly simplified many organizational issues.

The effectiveness of my treatment provided not only the overall high level of Israeli medicine and the professionalism of doctors, but also the assistance of medical center staff.

The patient was treated of brain tumor

My name is Olga, I turned to Bookimed in a state of total despair. My husband found a brain tumor, he consulted in Moscow and he was told that trepanation and removal is necessary. He also found a firm for medical tourism in Israel and asked for advice on his problem and was extremely discouraged by the answer that it is impossible to operate in any case, from the outset there should be radiation. Also found a mediator organizing treatment in Germany, but in this case even worse: the answer had to wait for 3 weeks "surgery is absolutely impossible," the estimates were not met, but the irradiation was also suggested, but "we'll see." In complete despair from the fact that tactics are not understood at all: I do the operation on the Internet or not ?, I found the Bookimed on the Internet, I was quickly answered, talked with Maxim Privalov, he is a very tactful professional, promptly arranged the examination of our mr and kt in the medical center of Ichilov the best neurosurgeon in Israel, Zvi Rama and Dr. Bukshtein. The next day the head of the department for the reception of foreign patients called me and so detailed told me everything about our problem that I had neither a shadow of doubt in terms of treatment tactics, and then by e-mail sent a letter in which it was also determined in detail: what should to do in what sequence, cost, questions about accommodation, etc. I am very grateful to these people for their professionalism! Thank you!

The patient was treated of stomach cancer

Hope and faith work wonders. If you have at least some little hope and opportunity, then you should take advantage of it and not hesitate. And the decision that comes to you, probably the first - the only true. Everything is very high quality, people are really responsive. I want to convey many thanks and words of sincere gratitude to Sofia (coordinator of international patient support), which helped to make this correct for us and the only choice. She showed us all the pros and cons, helped to make this the right decision.

The patient was treated of stomach cancer

In Russia, stomach cancer of the 4th stage was diagnosed with metastases, the operation was refused and offered chemotherapy with a standard set of drugs allowed for our polyclinics. After sitting in the queue all day waiting for a chemotherapist, I saw an incredible hopelessness of everything that was happening: a large queue of patients, indifference and lack of advice from the doctor, no shadow of hope. With this diagnosis, fear is compressed, but with this attitude kills. I want to hope that only I have come across such a reality, God forbid this to others. My relatives searched for alternative treatment abroad, through joint efforts, through acquaintances and the Internet, we came to contact the clinic in Israel "Ichilov". After a telephone conversation with the clinic, the final decision was made to go to Israel for treatment. In Israel, many similar medical institutions, but only similar ones, as it turned out later, it was Ichilov who is dealing with complex and problematic oncology issues that others can not cope with. Skeleton of professional doctors is formed by Ichilov, because the clinic has a scientific and practical center, the task of which is to increase the potential for effective treatment. My first impression when meeting with the clinic and its staff is the atmosphere of cordiality and desire to help, no one promises the impossible, a real picture of the problems and a plan for how to act. It makes no sense to speak and compare the service of Russian medical services and foreign, it is not comparable, everything here is envisaged for a person to recover, not to mention the staff and his attitude towards the sick. There are no problems with ignorance of a foreign language, the Russian curator solves all these problems, and a significant part of personnel from Russia or the former Soviet republics. It should be noted that the medical center of Ichilov is a whole city with many buildings of different treatment directions and a corresponding service infrastructure. Returning to the issue of treatment, I want to note one aspect, in my opinion, important, this is the quality of drugs in the course of treatment. Russian medicine can offer at best such (or generics), which does not improve the treatment. Passing treatment in Israel, in the clinic Ichilov, there is hope for the future. Many thanks to all the staff of the clinic. God bless you.

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 !!!

People do not believe. if in time and good medicine in the world it is cured. Throw everything change, all that is for life. I turned to Bukimed. I was immediately called back and suggested where to go to be treated. This is an oncology center in Turkey, Anadolu, which is built by Americans ... works on American protocols based on their modern achievements and technologies ... Best oncologists, Turkey. I was lucky to be seen with the most important oncologist in Turkey. Medicine in Anadol is 100 orders of magnitude higher than ours. During the whole time I was accompanied by a team of support for translators headed by Gul Ababey. All household difficulties, transfers, daily delivery to the hospital and accommodation were included in the program. People are very polite and respectful. And most importantly, they are doctors so set up that you do not want, but will survive. There is confidence in the future. The main thing to live, and the difficulties are still ahead, treatment, rehabilitation, etc. Thank you very much to Christina (accompanying in Ukraine, which quickly organized everything.)

The patient was treated in this clinic

Good afternoon! Last year, there was a health problem (oncology). Operation, chemistry, irradiation. In June of this year, I decided to undergo a survey abroad. I found Katerina Kochergan in Kiev (a medical curator from Bukimed). There were thoughts of going either to Israel or to India. Katya was able to convince me that we must fly to Turkey (clinic Anadolu). After some reflection, I agreed, since everything turned out to be much cheaper than Israel and India. I liked that the clinic works according to American protocols and the method of treatment of Johns Hopkins. Katya connected me with the curator of the clinic Gul Ababey, who booked the hotel in advance, ordered a transfer, wrote to the doctors and to the examination. In general, I want to very recommend this clinic. You will find quality, service, reasonable prices, warm caring environment. Thank you very much Katya Kochergan and Gul Ababey !!!

Gamma Knife is a radiosurgical system for precise single-time irradiation of brain diseases and eye pathologies (i.g., glaucoma).

Gamma Knife

How to choose Gamma Knife center?

When choosing the best Gamma Knife surgery center, take into account:

  • Gamma Knife unit effectiveness for treatment of a particular disease;
  • neurologists, neurosurgeons, and radiologists qualification;
  • diagnostic program accuracy.

One more criterion is Gamma Knife treatment cost. For instance, Gamma Knife surgery price in Turkey or India is 2-3 times lower than in Europe or Korea. Despite the affordable cost, the effectiveness is the same.

Gamma Knife treatment centers work according to strict international medical protocols.

Indications for Gamma Knife surgery

Doctors apply Gamma Knife to treat:

  • brain tumors (up to 3.5 cm in size)
  • neuralgia
  • vascular malformations
  • glaucoma and oncological eye diseases.

The latest Gamma Knife unit is applied to treat tumors of the brain and spinal cord.

Contraindications for Gamma Knife surgery

Gamma Knife is ineffective in case of big neoplasms. The method is not used if:

  • tumor size is more than 3.5 cm
  • a tumor grows rapidly
  • a neoplasm has no clear boundaries
  • a patient has increased intracranial pressure
  • a patient is in a critical condition (cerebral edema, infections, cardiovascular diseases, exacerbation of chronic diseases).

The effect of Gamma Knife treatment is delayed and can be estimated 3-6 months after irradiation.

Gamma Knife operating principle

Gamma-ray irradiation concentrates in the target determined by a radiologist. The rays affect diseased cells and stop their growth. Gamma Knife is harmless for healthy cells and surrounding tissues.

What is the difference between Gamma Knife and other methods?

Incisions are not necessary for Gamma Knife session. There is no risk of bleeding, infections or damage to healthy tissues.

Full therapeutic effect is achieved after 1 procedure. When other types if radiosurgery (CyberKnife, Novalis linear accelerator) are applied, a patient receives 5-15 treatment cycles.

The accuracy of ray influence is up to 0.3 mm.

The treatment does not require hospitalization and rehabilitation period. A patient can return to usual lifestyle right after the irradiation.

Preparation for Gamma Knife procedure

A doctor detects tumor size and location using CT or MRI. In case of vascular brain malformations, specialists conduct angiography.

Before irradiation, a radiologist develops a treatment plan using MRI and angiography data. This plan is sent to Gamma Knife unit console.

The Gamma Knife radiosurgery cost is calculated after the complete diagnostics.

Gamma Knife procedure process

How is the procedure performed?

A patient is placed on the table. A doctor fixes the head in the special stereotactic frame. Soft sedatives are injected so a patient feels comfortable.

The apparatus directs the irradiation inside the tumor. It detects tumor size according to the treatment plan and coordinates frame.

The treatment takes from 10 minutes to several hours. The duration depends on the number of targets, their shape, and size. It also affects the Gamma Knife treatment cost.

During therapy, a doctor controls and communicates with a patient through video/audio monitoring.

After irradiation

When the procedure is over, a patient can return to usual lifestyle. The effect is not immediate, so a patient needs to undergo regular MRI. This way a doctor observes Gamma Knife therapy efficiency.

How to undergo Gamma Knife procedure abroad?

Submit a request on Bookimed to receive therapy in the best Gamma Knife treatment centers. Bookimed Doctor will contact you to answer all the questions and book Gamma surgery center for you.

To find out how much does Gamma Knife surgery costs in a chosen clinic, provide:

  • MRI or CT images of the brain
  • results of the additional examination (angiography, PET-CT, a conclusion of a specialist)
  • medical records.

Bookimed services are free for patients.

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.

We have a phone, when we do not understand something, we phone and the interpreter immediately comes to us. I really like it here. And they gave us hope that they will help us here and I really believe in it. We have already done PET, MRI, blood donated and for the fourth day we are watching video monitoring. We asked Bukimed to find us a clinic that could help us, then we sent all our data and they offered us Spain. They said that this is one of the best clinics in general. They helped one woman from Kiev, I called her and she said: "do not go anywhere, just come here!" - because they were in other clinics.

The patient was treated of epilepsy

My 6-year old son was diagnosed with epilepsy. We couldn’t find an appropriate specialist in Czech Republic who could adequately assign medical treatment for 6 months. So, my wife and I decided to go for diagnostics and treatment abroad. To do this we turned to Bookimed company with a request to find and recommend us a specialized clinic that has a possibility to examine our child. Our coordinator Zeeshan Zaman offered several clinics. After a joint discussion we chose the Teknon Clinic in Barcelona and we’re totally satisfied with treatment! Antonio Russi consulted us and made all the tests. With prescribed medication my son doesn’t have any seizures at all.

The patient underwent childbirth

My husband often has business trips in Spain, and knowing how I‘m nervous about giving birth, he decided to find the best Spanish clinic for me. I’m very grateful, he chose the Teknon as a place for labor. Everything went well and without complications. In addition, the husband was allowed to be present at the birth himself, which was very supportive. I was well cared at all times and had everything that I needed. Thank you so much!

The patient underwent dental implant

Hello. My name is Sergey Pletnev. On the recommendation of the employee Bukimed, Vadim Berezhny, I was sent for treatment to the dental department of the Liv Hospitals Clinic in Istanbul. During the treatment, I was given 12 implants in one session. During the session, I did not experience a single pain. Due to high-quality work of employees and professional skills, very high professional qualities of medical staff of the dental department, we achieved such results that in almost 5 days I was delivered 12 implants, temporary bridges. The final result will need to be talked much later - three months. But, nevertheless, now with confidence I can say that the collective of Liv Hospital, their professional qualities are at the highest level. Plus - magnificent, modern equipment and a wonderful attitude towards the patient. With pleasure in three months I will return to this clinic in order to establish finally the crowns on my implants.

I applied via the Internet (Bookimed) asking me to give several directions. Appealed to Israel and Belarus and Moscow, but eventually stopped at the Liv Hospital. Together with specialists, we decided to implant 12 implants. For the price I was very happy and got a wonderful result. I am very satisfied with the specialists and the hospital itself, because the approach was very professional at all stages. I am grateful to all specialists of the clinic!

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 equipment is good, modern. Doctors and attendants are attentive and highly qualified. I passed a survey course and a number of specialist consultations. At the time when I was there, I was advised not to rush into the operation, as the state of health is at the stage of improvement. If they were interested in pumping money from me, then they would recommend urgently to do it, which indicates their objectivity. The only problem with finding there was an unusual food for me. But this is someone who, like someone who loves spicy, peppery and a lot of seasonings.

Helped with tickets, travel arrangements, always stayed in touch. The coordinator from Bookimed has a medical education, can qualitatively advise on clinics, doctors.

Clinic Medipol-as a multi-profile hospital is not bad, Doc, who made me an operation is magnificent. I listened with great pleasure to him and talked with him. A person is very intelligent and educated.
During my entire trip there were many good and positive moments, as well as negative ones. The downside is that the service in this clinic is simply unrealistic lame. He does not even limp, but travels in a "wheelchair". It was very disappointing that they treat us as if we owed something. I would like to write about the employee Maria, she was our translator and assistant in everything. True help from her was not any. After 6 pm, Mariyam can not be reached, she is "busy" and her work schedule is "over" (these are her words). Although we tried not to bother once again. Is this possible? We (the sick) pay such crazy money and really need help! Was it really not possible to treat us a little better? We do not ask that we be kissed by the heels, but respectfully REQUIRE! It's not so hard, you know for sure

The consultant sat and shrugged his shoulders, a stupid situation in general. I advise you to collect reviews about clinics that you recommend and recheck information.

The patient was treated in this clinic

If you need an organ transplant, this clinic is not your option. Since you just can not pass an ethical commission, and without it it is impossible to get on the operation. Organization in the clinic HORRIBLE. The translators changed, disappeared and the translation level is very, very bad (do not expect that the medical part will be transferred to you, only common words and meanings that can be understood even without the knowledge of the language). We came on a call to the clinic, but no one met us. As a result, we ourselves were looking for a translator to get tested. In addition, we constantly waited for "5 minutes", which flowed in 30-40 minutes of waiting, or even 2-3 hours. We were constantly offered to pay extra, again and again required additional tests or other expenses. And if you do not control your check, easily increase it by 3-4 times. Separately add about our book coordinator Svetlana. It was on her recommendation that we applied to the Apollo Hospital (initially I chose the Global Hospital clinic), the result was half a million rubles from the family budget (an apartment was sold for the sake of this operation) with a ZERO result. We could not get to the ethical commission because of a document that is not accepted at this clinic (whereas there is no problem with Global Hospital). My husband still needs a kidney. But thanks to Svetlana, we deprived a huge amount of money for our family, but the operation was never done. Thanks bookimed that disappointed and failed so much that I do not want to live.

Everything was very good, meeting, hotel accommodation, transfer, carrying out the research, deciphering out and explaining Mr. Dr. Nesrin ASLAN. Although the conversation was through an interpreter, it was noticeable that Mr. ASLAN really wanted me to understand everything. Thank you for that. Immediately additional studies were conducted to exclude or confirm a possible disease.     However, the prepaid consultation with Dr.Evrim METCALFE-Specialist in Radiation Oncologi did not work out well, and the doctor could not answer a series of questions,. The conversation was conducted through an interpreter, but the doctor does not know how to work through an interpreter, she always spoke, not allowing the translator to translate for me. On my objections and demands to listen to my questions, she became irritated and just left us all and left, explaining this by the fact that she was waiting for the sick.    And in the rest, everything was wonderful. Probably all this was due to the lack of a Russian-speaking doctor at that time, and there is one in the clinic.

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 thoracic aortic aneurysm

My son (2 years), made an endovascular operation to close the interatrial defect (11mm). We still can not believe that we had an operation. Many times re-read the topic on the forum about invasive operations and dreamed that my son, you can close the defect in this way. Unfortunately, in Kazakhstan, we have not reached the age of 15 kg. weight such closures do not, only by the open method. Yes, and child cardiac surgery is just beginning to develop. All parents, if possible, take the children to Russia, Germany, South Korea, Israel. So I began to collect information about the clinics, where it is better to do the operation. By a fluke we got to Samsung. I'm not sure how many quarters this hospital occupies, but it's huge, it feels like it's in the forest, although it's located in the heart of Seoul. In advance, I apologize for the pun in the writings, I will certainly write in detail about our stay in the clinic. Now, I just want to say thanks to our endovascular surgeon Kang I Sok, the entire 9W pediatric department and the department for working with Russian-speaking patients Sonia, Lisa and Mr. Chu. For their personal involvement in the recovery of my little son. Especially the interpreter Sone who met us at the airport, accompanied at the examinations, when the operation was supported me morally and in general became my native person. Sonia did not just fulfill her duties, but she really sympathized. We flew home on October 14, I look anxiously at my son's leg (more precisely, I constantly look at her), but I see nothing there. No bruise, no scars, if I had not seen his leg right after the operation, you might think that he was not given a puncture. Lord, is this really the modern high tech technology. For all the stay in the clinic, he practically did not cry, except for the time when it was impossible to eat 6 hours before the operation (from 4.30 am to 11 am), about which he at that time sucks his breast, and when he was not given mother's milk, he hysterically raised , but this one, he could not be reassured by the whole department. How I transferred all this, do not describe in words.
I want to note the high professionalism of the sisters, how they quickly and painlessly install catheters, take blood, how they change the adhesive plasters on these catheters, wipe the puncture site with special napkins, massage the brush and fingers from sagging! Find an approach to every child. Even when the son did not want to drink medicine, and kicked! The nurse only smiled, and on my slap to my son for the spilled medicine said Dont steal, zisis baby. Type is a child, he can do anything! In Korea, an interesting mentality: the old and the children are the highest caste, the old people should all bow down, almost everything is allowed to children! The treatment was at the highest level. So everything is organized and computerized. When you get to the department, a paper bracelet is put on the pen on the handle, on which there is all the information about the child and the treatment prescribed. When you go to another examination, the doctor already knows who will come and what examination to do. While doing the examination, the child watches cartoons, after examinations, we walk in the garden on a special baby carriage with a tripod, where all sorts of flashing sensors and droppers hang. However, it was difficult to put a son in the carriage after the operation, he runs like a battery, and I followed him like a second battery, just a dropper at the speed We were lying on the 9th floor. In the same sector, if you go down to floor B1 there are several restaurants, grocery (like a super market), flower shops, a shop where you can buy everything from diapers to a travel bag, souvenir shops, a bank, a pharmacy. We did not buy food, because they were fed patients with a choice of European or Korean cuisine 3 times a day. Order from the menu. Food is carried by a special machine. About her write separately I want to tell all parents whose children have heart surgery, do not despair, find a good clinic, trust the surgeon, and get the best treatment.

In Moscow, local doctors tormented me for two months! Only a puncture (not a biopsy) 2 times took! And with the assumption of "breast cancer" was sent to an operation to remove the entire breast ("so reliable"). After two months of torment, I decided to go to Israel. I found the clinic Rambam. Have made a biopsy and diagnostics. They decided that at my stage it makes no sense to remove the entire chest. We decided to remove only one lymph node. So the breast will be saved !!!

The total price for all came out 5500 dollars. All the diagnostics took 3 days. Then another 5 days, I was waiting for the results of the biopsy. As a result, there was another meeting where the diagnosis was confirmed. But now I know exactly what and how to treat me! But I have an initial stage and no metastases. There is hope for a cure.

The patient was treated of cervical cancer

I passed last year a planned medical examination. The doctors diagnosed me with cervical cancer. In Russia, such a diagnosis simply plunges into shock, as the level of medicine desires better, and cancer is generally a death sentence. My relatives supported me in a difficult moment.

Very soon I recovered from the shock, began to think-guess how to fight for a life for the sake of children, husband, myself. There was not much time, it was impossible to delay with such a diagnosis. On the advice of a friend, I chose the Assuta clinic in Israel. Why Assuta? I read a lot of positive responses about this hospital, the indicator of successfully conducted operations in the department of oncology was simply amazing. Of course, the level of Israeli doctors is much higher than ours.

Shortly after the application, the coordinator of the clinic contacted us, which also inspired confidence. He painted a program of treatment, introduced the case. When asked how much treatment will cost, the answer is tentative. They said that the doctor should specify the price, and payment is made after the fact. This was also a plus. Of course, there was some concern that we were going to a foreign country, we would feel "lost", but these fears were in vain.

It pleased us that at the stage of diagnosis we were informed that the situation was not so terrible. There was a hope for recovery. A few days later I was operated on.

I was at home in a couple of weeks completely healthy. There are not enough good words to express gratitude to the doctors of the Assuta clinic who cured me.

The patient was treated of lung cancer

Six months ago, my father was diagnosed with lung cancer. There was already stage 3, and our doctors said it was too late to do anything. But we decided that since we can not be cured here, this does not mean that we will not be helped abroad. Considered a lot of options, both Germany and Austria, but decided to go to Israel. Still, the medicine there is somewhat cheaper.
The father was treated in Assut. The clinic is very good, and the doctors in it are real professionals. Dad passed a course of chemotherapy with radiation, then an operation was performed. In general, the father feels well. We are very grateful to the doctors of the clinic.
