Nothing superfluous was not assigned to m not included in the bill. The clinic is very large, in a beautiful suburb of Berlin.

Thanks to the great coordinator Maxim Privalov for organizing my trip to Prague for the operation, his professional advice greatly influenced my choice of the clinic for the operation of hip replacement. And now about the clinic of Malvazinka, I would like to express my gratitude to all the professional and benevolent staff of the clinic, especially Vladislav Goveraru, who operated me, the head of the department, Sergey Ryzhov, Dushan Bartosh, physiotherapist Market Trdlickova, doctors of the rehabilitation department. And also thanks for the support in the clinic for the coordinators of Vamed Irina and Olga, the translators Elena and Tatiana, thanks to their care, there were no problems during their stay. It was almost 3 months after the operation (October 20, 2017) and 2 months after discharge from the rehabilitation department of Malvazinka. I am very pleased with the results of the operation, the course of professional rehabilitation in the clinic (28 days), I continue rehabilitation at home every day for 1-1.5 hours doing exercises. Everyone who plans such operations, I recommend the clinic Malvazinki. P.S. If there is an opportunity to undergo a one-month rehabilitation course in the clinic, this really helps a faster recovery.

The patient underwent hip replacement

Very disappointed clinic Malvazinka, coordinators who do not perform their work in the clinic. The attitude of the doctors wants the best. I did not have the opportunity to talk to the operating surgeon., Not after the operation, nor before. Shov who promised 12-15 cm, turned out to be 25. Recommendations after rehabilitation, were not given. Even an elementary statement was issued without translation. Although coordinators of the clinic, they promised that the translation will be sent. It turned out that it was necessary to have it on. mesteplatit.Odnim word just kommercatsiya.Ne believe advertising, we are not particularly needed, our money is needed!

Response from the team working with foreign patients of the clinic Malvazinki:
"Good afternoon, dear Natalya. We hope that you and now are all well from a medical point of view, as well as when discharging from a hospital. And after a successful operation, you will postpone the crutches in a few weeks and forget about the pain while walking. After all, it is for this that you came to us and came! Yes, to save all the muscles and tendons in your physiological case, the doctor had to make a larger incision than usual, and if you could stay on the recommended rehabilitation after the removal of the sutures - it could be leveled with the skin by a medical laser.
We are very sorry that you were left with discontent with coordination, and we could not fulfill your expectations about a personal assistant 24 hours a day. According to the rules of the clinic, concierge-interpreters visit every patient for 1-2 hours a day to translate into Russian the doctor's visit and individual physiotherapy, as indicated in the operating programs. Once again, you are sent a postoperative reminder in Russian with instructions for postoperative measures and remind you to MUST register with an orthopedist for physical control at your place of residence up to 3 days after your discharge.
The translation of the statement will be sent to you by e-mail, and we apologize for the confusion caused by the introduction of a new European standard on the protection of patients' personal data. "

The patient underwent hip replacement

I went through the replacement of the hip joint in the MALVASINKA Clinic with subsequent rehabilitation from 18.03.2018 to 11.04.2018. After finding the house for 4 weeks, he systematized his initial and final impression. His stay and the quality of treatment, rehabilitation in the Clinic Malvazinki would like to appreciate in the following way: 1. PLUSES: - Excellent operating surgeon Vladislav Hospodar; - Excellent and very professionally attentive physiotherapist Dana Braxova; - Responsive nurses, especially Andrea. 2. MINUSES: BASIC FAT MINUS - ASSISTANCE OF CONSERVER TRANSFERS UNDER THE IMMEDIATE THE MANAGEMENT OF OLGA SKATKOVA (Olga SKATKOVA) - As it is written in one of the previous reviews - "Everything is almost fine before it paid off.  Then no one has anything to do with you! "- I absolutely agree, after leaving all my letters completely  were ignored by the concierge O. Skatkova, despite the status of "Delivered" and "Viewed." - In particular, the extract / anamnesis was issued without translation, although the coordinators of the clinic promised that  the translation will be sent in 2-3 days after discharge, without results, wait a month (!!!!!). After 3 weeks of waiting and inquiries received a short answer that they have "force majeure" without any specifics when the translation of the statement will be made, and the time allowed for the registration of the disability goes and it is not my dimensionless,  I no longer see the point in writing. A reference image sent after 6 weeks after the operation (on the recommendation of the clinic's specialists, to determine the progress of rehabilitation and the time when it will be possible to refuse crutches) was sent last week, just after a 6-week period, as ordered, see the result above - the status of the message to O. Skatkova "Delivered" and "Viewed" the reaction is ZERO. The subsequent reminder of the picture and the translation of the extract is still left without any answer. - If "According to the rules of the clinic, concierge-interpreters visit every patient for 1-2 hours a day for  translation into Russian of a doctor's visit and individual physiotherapy, "then there were days when they did not visit me at all or came to me  with a significant delay (in particular - Elena), which entailed the admission or reduction of rehabilitation procedures, changing the schedule, etc. - The rehabilitation is rather weak, at first there were only 2 procedures a day, physiotherapy individual and group, after my repeated  requests, during the third week of stay, more procedures were added, however it was already the final week and, for example, a massage duration of 10 minutes a session, was only 2 times for the entire period of rehabilitation. I recommend to all who plan treatment, to keep this moment under the control and remind the concierges about the need to add to the schedule of additional procedures, for some reason they themselves are not particularly concerned about this, despite the rather large, in general, cost of rehabilitation. Two of my friends have already refused treatment in this clinic, after my recall, in favor of German clinics, where although slightly and more expensive, but the services are performed in full and without extra reminders.

From the bottom of my heart I want to thank Professor Gross, as well as all the staff of the Asclepios clinic in Hamburg for their high professionalism, efficiency, sensitivity and attention to patients. About a month ago left an application on the site bookimed, within an hour I was contacted by coordinator Katerina, immediately offered several clinics specializing in oncourology. The choice fell on Asclepios in Hamburg, in particular, Professor Gross. Within a week, thanks to Katerina's efforts, prof. Gross, determined the tactics of treatment and already in a week there was immediate operation. There were some doubts that the nephrectomy could be performed laparoscopically, but the golden hands of prof. Gross know their business. The postoperative period went smoothly, recovered quickly. During the week of the stay, there were no complaints about the work of the staff: attentive, sensitive and affable. Conditions are more than comfortable. The language barrier was not a problem due to the well-coordinated work of the translators Lydia Goncharenko and Vladimir Fissenko. Separately, I want to once again express my gratitude to coordinator Katerina, who was always in touch, quickly resolved all sorts of difficulties.

What is knee replacement?

Knee replacement (arthroplasty) is a surgery when an orthopedist removes damaged cartilage or bone parts and change it with endoprosthesis (artificial knee joint). Orthopedists of the best hospitals for knee replacement surgery renew the knee functions and return a patient to the healthy life without pain.

The best doctors for knee replacement surgery provide partial and total arthroplasty methods.

✔️Over 90% is a success rate of knee replacement surgery

✔️85% of patients are satisfied with the arthroplasty results. Usually, patients do not need long-term rehabilitation and physiotherapy.

Types of knee replacement procedures

  • Partial knee replacement surgery is a type of orthopedic surgical intervention to remove and change only a part of the damaged cartilage with the knee implant.

Partial replacement of the knee joint is less traumatic procedure than the total one. The operation requires less material and time. All these factors cause the lower partial knee replacement cost in comparison with the complete one.

  • Total knee replacement is a kind of orthopedic surgery when a specialist removes and change the whole cartilage with the endoprosthesis.

❗️❗️ Regardless of the surgery type, the average cost of knee replacement is determined in a clinic and is different for each particular case.

Partial and full knee replacements

Reasons for knee replacement surgery

Nobody is insured against joint diseases. Knee diseases are the significant problem in old age. But 30-years-old may also face the disorders of the knee joints.

Common reasons for knee replacements:

  • genetic predisposition
  • the post-climactic period in women
  • traumas and injuries in athletes
  • tobacco products
  • fatty foods.

Methods of knee prosthesis fixation

There are 2 primary methods to fix knee implant to the bone:

  • Cemental. Specialists join the bone and prosthesis with the rapid hardening bone cement. This method of the knee replacement is usually prescribed for over 70-years-old patients.
  • Cementless. The bone grows in the implant without cement. This method is the most progressive. The cementless technique is used for the best total knee replacement. Orthopedists apply it only for patients under 65 years old.

Important to know!

The official lifespan of the knee endoprosthesis is 10-15 years.

Orthopedists consider that prosthesis longevity may be up to 15-20 years.

Real-life experience shows that knee prosthesis lifespan is 20-25 years. After this period a patient needs to repeat the operation.

Knee replacement surgery process

Specialists perform the knee replacement surgery under the general anesthesia. The procedure lasts for 2 hours.

Knee replacements: figures


The knee replacement procedure is divided into 7 stages:

  1. A surgeon checks the vital signs, heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature of a patient. Then a doctor applied anesthesia.
  2. The orthopedists prefer minimally invasive knee replacement and make small incisions down the center of the knee. They remove tissues to access the femur and tibia.
  3. The knee replacement surgeons use computer assistance to make an accurate cut because each bone must correctly fit its prosthesis.
  4. A doctor attaches components of the prosthesis to the femur and tibia. The depth of connecting the parts of the implants depends on the type of artificial material (bone cement).
  5. The surgeons attach flexible polyethylene cushion on the top of the new tibia surface to absorb new prosthetic surfaces.
  6. Specialists flex and extend the leg to check the movement of the new prosthesis. Then they straighten the leg to make the bone, cement and prosthesis bond together.
  7. A surgeon sews up the incisions.

Risks and complications of the knee arthroplasty

Like any surgical procedure, the knee replacement is associated with some medical risks.

5% of patients (ages 65 and over) have one of the complications after the surgery. However, severe complications are rare.

Possible complications after the surgery in the knee replacement clinics are:

  • vein thrombosis or blood clots;
  • bleeding;
  • infection (less than 1%);
  • body’s defense against implant (in cases when a patient has heart disease or diabetes);
  • the probability that the knee will not work as a patient hoped;
  • allergic reaction to the bone cement;
  • the risk of repeated knee replacement procedure in cases of loose or dislocated component of the prosthesis;
  • destruction of surrounding veins, nerves or arteries (in rare cases);
  • pulmonary embolism, heart attack (0.3% of patients);
  • death (according to statistics less than 1 case out of 400).

The postoperative period after the total knee replacement arthroplasty

1 day. A patient is in an intensive care unit, where he takes analgesics, undergoes antibacterial therapy and symptomatic treatment.

2 day. A patient moves to the orthopedics and traumatology department of a hospital. S/he may sit down on the bed and do minimal physical exercises, which are very important for preventing possible complications.

3-6 days. A patient gets out of the bed but makes the main weight bearing on the healthy leg. Usually, a patient uses crutches or individual walkers.

7-10 days. An orthopedist takes out stitches and discharges a patient from a hospital. A patient starts to undergo the rehabilitation program.

Rehabilitation period after the total knee replacement arthroplasty

❕ After the knee replacements,recovery period lasts 3-6 months. Following recommendations from the best doctors for knee replacement surgery help a patient to prolong the prosthesis lifespan from 10 to 15 years.

❕ After the surgery, a patient should exclude heavy physical activity, avoid traumas and do not go in for football, basketball or running.

  • physiotherapeutic procedures;
  • massage;
  • taking analgesic medications (if necessary);
  • movement therapy;
  • taking vitamins and minerals.

❕ During 1-3 months after the procedure, a patient use walker or crutches to avoid injuries and repeated surgery.

How much does knee replacement surgery cost?

The knee replacement operation cost can vary in different countries or even inside the territory of the same state. In that cases, the cost of the procedure depends on a hospital and methods of operating. In some hospitals, the status of a specialist who provides knee replacement procedure also influences the knee replacement price.

The average cost of knee replacement

The knee replacement price usually depends on:

  • period of hospitalization. Depending on the type of the operation (total or partial knee replacement) a patient stays in a hospital for a different number of days;
  • transfer to/from an airport;
  • type of implant (material of implant also affect the cost of knee replacement procedure);
  • surgical approach (use of different surgical instruments and technologies causes different costs for knee surgery;
  • the stage of a patient’s disorder. Some of the patients may face complications of their diseases before performing the knee surgery, which can lead to the raising of prices for the procedure.

Additional knee joint replacement surgery costs

The patient was treated of prostate cancer

My dad, radiation therapy, 40 sessions, about 2 months of stay in Istanbul were treated in the clinic. It's still early to speak about the results, therefore the review is exclusively about the process (!) For now. The choice helped to make bookimed, and I highly recommend using this excellent service. As a user, I would like to name the most basic plus. First and foremost, it is time saving, and in some cases it is equivalent to the preservation of health and life. And what is important, without costs for the patient, there is simply no payment for the company's service. Moreover, service coordinators are a huge resource for patients. We had Konstantin, and we are very grateful for the help and the choice of the best medical solution (at the price / quality / reputation of the doctor / clinic) and great help in solving logistical issues. When we have to deal with "medical tourism", there are no tourism patients for the patients there: (In addition to the medical problem, there are many practical, financial, coordination issues. It is important to have support on the side of the patient, we are very grateful. Now about the clinic: in general, the clinic liked, very modern and good equipment (so it was chosen), a good price-quality ratio. . From the pros: the doctor radiologist and the staff of the radiological department were attentive and in matters of medicine, and just a relationship. 40 sessions are 40 visits to the clinic, it is difficult, both physically and morally. The benevolent staff really helped make this experience less painful in all respects. I will not write much about the interior of the clinic, but for whom the aesthetics are important, yes, everything is excellent, modern, clean, often more like a hotel. As elsewhere, there is a large team of translators. To communicate with doctors used English directly, there certainly are many advantages. But all 40 sessions and not only were always assisted by translators in communicating with junior honey. personnel, coordination issues, medical records to the doctor, analyzes, transfers, etc. From the minuses: The clinic is in a very expensive and difficult physically accessible area (on a hill). Despite the fact that we lived side by side (significantly overpaying compared to other areas of Istanbul), we had to use motor transport every day. For a short stay, this is not a problem, but when a longer period is still an inconvenience. Some translators of the clinic introduced the category of "minuses" of the clinic. People are different, qualification, too, but it was still in a significant minority (our main interpreter was both professional and human). Again in the minority (!), But for the objectivity to mention, some doctors offered super expensive tests in very standard situations. For example, oh, well, if you want, in addition to the X-ray, we can do another CT scan (when coughing), which besides doubtful honey. values ​​(not to mention money) was recently and so done. Again, our main doctor is very intelligible and enthusiastically explained the essence of the treatment, the expected effect, side effects, prescribed drugs on time to eliminate them, which of course, most important! As a conclusion, the minuses will always and everywhere, but in general, from our experience, we are satisfied with the process of treatment in the LIV hospital. Thank you hospital and bukimed team.

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.

The patient was treated of rectal cancer

From April to July 2017, I underwent treatment in the oncology department of the Teknon Clinic. I came to this clinic thanks to the international support center for patients "Bukmed", coordinator Christina supervised me. I sincerely thank her for her support and help! The treatment in the clinic was at the highest level, and it ended with success. I want to express my words of great gratitude to all the doctors who directly treated me, and in particular to Dr. Capdeville and to Dr. Harkano. I was also very helped by girls from the international center in this clinic. With their help, I did not have any difficulties in communicating with doctors and medical staff. I will definitely recommend to my friends and relatives, in case of any health problems, to choose the treatment at the Clinic Tecnon.

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 vsem.nachnu from the very beginning. In February 2018, I underwent a general examination for the state of health. The location of the Samara region is not the capital. But the city is not small. I went through patronage. Therefore, the survey was conducted as scheduled. And even better. I did not propose any complications There was pressure and constant fatigue. Irritability and depression alternated each other. I conducted a full examination and fgds.chto something the doctor did not like and took a biopsy in the stomach. After the survey I received an extract from the hospital. All the less less good. Aliz biopsy was not ready. After a week, the analysis came in. I was in shock. I did not exercise 46. sportsman. I respect the regime and the correct diet. and then the cell carcinoma of the stomach is ring-like. The first thought is bug.t.k was examined by patronage and went to a person with a question. he sent to a better specialist in the city.are on the operation the faster the better.a abroad? asked ya.net meaning.here we will do the same way only spend money.and what stage? We will see.We see and the whole answer. ? no. everything is clear. so everything is honest. what can we do. I decided to try overseas. I have some money for that. I'm sorry. I'm also diagnosed as terrible. For what I'm writing in detail, that people would not face the problem of health with their hands. Even without money, this does not mean that you need to die quietly. Judging by our medicine we do not need our country. but we need our relatives and children. Therefore, we need to move and fought. it's easier for me to reason, because there were accumulations. Later, I decided to listen to friends living in Europe and go there to be examined. treatment, I myself came across people who have a terrible di The agnosis delivered at home was not confirmed. scared to death but happy after an unconfirmed diagnosis. After being examined in one of the poorest European countries, my diagnosis was confirmed. We must pay tribute to our native Russian medicine that they at an early stage somehow found this infection miraculously. The investigation in Europe is about 5 t ev.za operation said 28. after talking with the doctor through an interpreter (I speak only in Russian) I realized that although he and maybe a good known only within his city.decided that it was unclear who I could home for free.Israel for myself removed from the plans. after reading what the middlemen are doing there. Although the acquaintances said that it is cheaper than in Europe, the percentages on 10.simply on the subconscious said net.germaniya.tam live poznamye.uznali.50.ya already do not hold in the budget .parallelly I read internet.pro my sore. I'm not now for the sake of advertising. I explain my position later. I found the site of bukimed. First of all, I had an association with bukinkomom. although absolutely different things turned out later. I wrote an application for a call. I called back an hour later. having talked to the person and having told him I asked for advice. I immediately fear that the same intermediaries without shame and conscience were immediately. but in my case I was ready to trust and overpay even but within reasonable limits. When faced with a medical problem and without understanding anything in medicine, it's very difficult to make a choice of your own further actions. I talked from the very beginning in bukimede with Ivan.very adequate person. And in terms of communication, I so understand it has medpraktiku.on to me on the basis of my analyzes advises garmaniyu.i at some point the conversation goes to Barcelona and Dr. Lassi. the Internet those about the doctor make a decision no longer rushing about and going there. I forgot to say that the Schengen is open for me for a year. Ivan writes me down only after two weeks for a consultation motivating that the doctor at a symposium in amerike.mogu say with full responsibility that Ivan all that he promised fulfilled .my running ahead it is necessary to say that my story has a happy ending. at least until 3 weeks after the operation everything is excellent. and reviews about Ivan's work are all positive. I can not say if the final was more in black as I wrote. but all that said and he promised Ivan he did everything in any case. I came to a consultation in barcelona. I got to the hotel and then went straight to the clinic. the doctor accepted the mines 30 minutes after the appointed time. but I really saw that he was being consulted for a turn. from an interpreter from the clinic .Lilya. I asked her whether she was a clinic employee. She showed her docks. Ivenevet Ivan, but after reading the Internet I do not trust anyone 100%. Asked if Lassie was right at the symposium? And also received confirmation. At the very beginning of communication with Ivan asked where the financial interest of Bukimed .mne explained that Bukimed gets his commissions from the clinic. and it does not matter with what.Germany or spania.da. all the money I translated klinike.chto with me earned Bukimed me not interesno.svoyu function they performed.Ivan to the last was in touch. helped in overcoming It was his work. but it was done. on 100%. there were uncomfortable moments. Before I stop at the clinic (by the way, the name quironsalid), I asked the budget for the operation

The patient was treated of ovarian cyst

Hello! In the clinic I performed an operation to remove the cyst on the ovary. The operation was successful, only good memories remained (small punctures). Staff qualified, sincere to visit came every 10, nice! The clinic is clean and quiet, the rooms are spacious, in one place you can take all the tests, which is very convenient. Especially I would like to mention Dr. Sebastian Hench, radiant, positive, as they say "Doctor of God."

Good afternoon everyone! The company bukimed very much helped in solving the terrible misfortune that happened in my family - this is cancer, namely the consultant Koval Ivan, gave hope for the recovery of my aunt. A couple of words about how the bukimed advised us with the hospital: we filed an application with a specific problem, and on the same day we received a call from the consultant Ivan, exactly one day we were offered three hospital options in Europe with a full description of the doctors and the cost of treatment. A week later we were already in Germany at a reception with Professor Dr. Hensch, the consultation was held at a very high level. Now my aunt is being treated and I'm sure that the treatment will be successful.)) I think the aunt will tell in more detail after full recovery. Personally from myself and from the weight of my family, I want to say HUGE thanks to the company Bukimed and Ivan for the quality work.

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 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!

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!
