The patient was treated of lung cancer

The trouble comes suddenly. I want to tell you how ordinary people helped me to survive, who came to my grief with participation. So, a blossoming woman, cheerful cheerful energetic, who has so many plans and dreams would have to go to the next world. When diagnosed in Ukraine, this is the case. But. 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.) I owe it to her very much.

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 !!!

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.

The patient was treated of cancer of the trachea

My father (67 years old) in June-July 2013 was treated in Solingen, in Stadtisches Klinikum. The diagnosis is cancer of the trachea with metastases in the lungs. A tumor in the trachea was detected in September 2015. She was refused treatment at the 62nd hospital, in fact. So we ended up in Germany.
During the first (week) visit, a general examination was conducted. The operation had to be abandoned for medical reasons.
Unfortunately, the set of further options was not very large. The case was taken to a hospital consultation. A combination of tumor irradiation and treatment with "antibodies" was suggested. This method of treatment for some reason is practically not used in Russia (at least, it was not possible to find it on the sites of the main Russian cancer centers).
At the clinic there is a decent and inexpensive hostel where you can stop and from where you can go to the procedures (irradiation and droppers).
There is a feeling that the treatment worked. The control tomography is planned in early September in Moscow. The results will be sent to Germany, we hope for the best.

The patient was treated in this clinic

I wanted to share my experience of the survey in Germany, if more precisely, at the Solingen Clinic.
The wife has transferred 2 operations on a stomach, resection on B-II after have altered on B-I. We continued to accompany ourselves for a long time, because doctors did not want to take us for a walk or let us circle. We go around a lot of clinics in Kiev and did not find doctors who were ready to deal with the condition of the body, diagnose and offer a treatment regimen.
After much thought, they decided to apply through the Bookimed site. Manager Ekaterina helped to select a clinic and doctors, with specialization applied to our case. We were offered a personal system of body examination (for gastroenterology). In the Solingen clinic, an international office in the person of Marina and Alexandra, provided the necessary assistance in negotiations with doctors and helped resolve all issues that we had.
We expected that we would come, and everything would revolve around us (to examine, do something, advise, treat). But medicine in Germany is a little different, it needed to be ready and we had to learn it on the go. We were listened to, the professor on the basis of ours appointed a survey, tests, consultations of other doctors and what he considered necessary for our diagnosis. Frankly, with such thoroughness and so meticulously (in the good sense of the word) we were never examined. During the examination, doctors excluded anomalies that could form in the body (tumors, improperly performed operations, a violation of the body's physiology, adhesions). After the examination, medical treatment was started. Preparations are selected by adding or removing one tablet and controlling the condition of the body.
Separately I want to note the care of medical personnel, from nurses to doctors, comfort and warmth - all for the patient.
After the examination in Germany, the international office, translated the documents for Ukrainian doctors and provided survey protocols, both in German and in Russian, CD-ROMs with the results of the surveys.
To sum up, I will say: if you want to examine the body and understand what to do next, I recommend Germany and the Solingen clinic. In the person of the medical staff of the clinic and employees of the international office you will find - sensitivity, understanding and desire to help. Doctors treat each patient equally well and at the highest professional level, every professional and in his place.
We have a positive impression of Germany and the Solingen clinic, German doctors and everyone who helped us and actively participated in solving various issues. I also recommend finding time and looking at Germany itself - it's very interesting and allows you to get an easier examination and treatment.
We consider that the trip costed those forces, money and the result that we received.

The patient was treated of hip fracture

With a calm heart I can recommend the orthopedic department of the city clinical clinic in Solingen and especially its head prof. Floating. The situation before going to the clinic was critical. In Russia they refused to treat, all previous operations failed. During the therapy I was in good hands. Assistance was provided at any time of the day. All problems were solved quickly and competently. After a short enough time after the operation, I feel better, and I owe this not only to the professionalism of the doctors but also to the high level of organization of this trip. Very satisfied. Many thanks to all!

What is removal of meningioma

Removal of meningioma is the main method of treating benign or malignant meningiomas. Most of the experts use radical surgery or radiation therapy to remove meningiomas.

Meningioma resection is divided into:

  • total (whole tumor is removed);
  • subtotal or partial (only a part of tumor is removed).


Main options of meningioma treatment

The type of therapy depends on the size of the tumor, its location, the age of a patient and the presence of pathologies.

There are 2 main methods of meningioma treatment:

  • Stereotactic radiosurgery used for difficult access to the tumor and close connection of meningioma with vessels, nerve trunks, sinuses of the brain;
  • Surgical removal used in cases of the big size of meningioma (more than 3.5cm in diameter).


Stereotactic Radiosurgery

Radiosurgery is a medical procedure used for destroying of tumors or suspending their functioning by means of a single irradiation with a high dose of ionizing radiation.

Radiosurgery has two main advantages:

  1. Irradiation affects the meningioma from different directions (tumor receives the maximum possible dose of radiation)
  2. Radiosurgery is non-invasive (treatment of a tumor does not require breaking the integrity of the head tissue and opening the cranium).


The contraindication for radiosurgery is the inability to operate brain tumors over 3.5 cm in diameter. The effectiveness of stereotactic radiosurgery is very high: about 95% of meningiomas stop their growth after a single procedure or a small course of treatment.

The main radiotherapeutic / radiosurgical units are:

  • GammaKnife;
  • CyberKnife;
  • TrueBeam.


Advantages and disadvantages of meningioma removal with the help of the GammaKnife

  • designed for non-invasive brain surgery (without the use of a scalpel);
  • has a frame based system for immobilization with radiation sources, which can causeside such effects of gamma knife surgery for meningioma as headache, nausea and a risk of infection;
  • one image of magnetic resonance imaging is used, in contrast to systems that do not use a frame for attaching the head and require constant imaging with CT during treatment, making an additional contribution to excess radiation doses;
  • small sizes of collimators protect the body tissues from the effects of radiation and excludes the possibility of treatment of metastases and tumors over 3 cm.


Features of meningioma resection with CyberKnife

  • universal method not only for treating the brain, but also for removing the tumor and metastasis throughout the body;
  • mega-voltage X-ray radiation from the CyberKnife is four times more powerful than the energy from cobalt used in the GammaKnife;
  • CyberKnife is a flexible, frameless system that allows a patient to conduct treatment in one or more sessions. This allows oncologists to choose the safest and most effective course of treatment;
  • does not require a frame screwing into the skull for immobilization, which helps to avoid headache, nausea and the risk of infection.


Peculiarities of stereotactic radiosurgery using the TrueBeam system

  • Focused radiation beams of the system destroy tumor cells without affecting the surrounding healthy tissues;
  • use of a metal frame that is bolted to the skull bones of a patient is unnecessary;
  • opportunity of fractional irradiation (treatment is divided into 2-5 small sessions, which makes possible to safely treat large meningiomas located near important structures, for example, the optic nerve);
  • TrueBeam system is equipped with modern medical imaging devices that allow a radiologist to monitor the tumor behavior in real time;
  • During visualization of pathological formations, the technology of cone-beam computed tomography (CT) is used. This method of visualization makes possible to reduce the radiation load on the patient's body by 25%.

Surgical treatment of meningiom

There are 2 indications for surgical removal of meningioma:

Endoscopic resection of meningioma

  • If the tumor is in the area of the brain that is available for surgery
  • If the tumor over 3.5 cm in diameter.


Endoscopic intervention is the minimally invasive method of meningioma removal, when the tumor is removed without opening the skull with endoscopic instruments. Removal of meningioma through transnasal access is most often used. The method is the most effective in combination with intraoperative MRI and nerve navigation systems.

Craniotomy or trepanation of the skull is carried out only if the tumor is located close to the surface. This method provides good visibility of the operating field and allows the removal of large tumors.

Preparing for the operation

For the accurate determination of the type of meningioma and for prescribing the fastest and most effective treatment, a patient should go through the following procedures:

  • Blood test;
  • Electroencephalogram;
  • Angiography;
  • MRI - magnetic resonance imaging;
  • MRS - magnetic resonance spectroscopy;
  • CT - computed tomography;
  • biopsy.

Rehabilitation after removal of meningioma

The rehabilitation period can range from few weeks to a year. It depends on the method of treatment and the type of operation. The physical and psychological condition of a patient before surgery also affects the postoperative period. The recovery will occur quickly if a patient follows a doctor's prescribed rehabilitation program and takes the necessary medicines.

Consequences after meningioma removal

Consequences after the removal of meningioma depend on tumor localization, prevalence of pathological process and histologic type. Young people have none of consequences after meningioma resection in contrast to elderly patients, who face negative effects much more often.

Consequences after resection of meningioma can be various:

  • loss of sight;
  • hearing loss;
  • sensitivity depression;
  • paralysis of extremities;
  • lacks of coordination;
  • recurrence.

Recurrence of meningioma after removal

Meningioma recurrence rate after the operation:

  • 3% for benign tumors;
  • 38% for atypical tumors;
  • 78% for malignant tumors.


Also possibility of meningioma recurrence depends on location of a tumor.

  • at the cranial vault is 3%;
  • in the region of the Turkish saddle is 19%;
  • in the region of the body of the sphenoid bone 34% within five years;
  • in the cavernous sinus is 60-100%.

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.

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.

The patient was treated in this clinic

The clinic reacted to my disease and my condition was formally. They prescribed me antidepressants, which did not go to me (cause serious side effects). When I talked about my anguish - a doctor named Pavel stood and smiled scornfully all the time. Regarding the planned procedures: the prescribed lumbar puncture was canceled as unnecessary. The diagnosis: depression. The question arises: on the basis of what preconditions is this diagnosis made? The doctor treated me disdainfully. I do not have any questions to coordinator Olga Obishchenko: she is a very attentive and competent specialist.

The patient was treated of pulmonary hypertension

The doctor was not competent in my illness. There was an oblique cardiologist. The coordinator promised a super test for my illness, but this examination was not. The doctor asked Vapros why I came to visit. Nobody passed the history of my illness into the clinics to the coordinators. I waited for a meeting with the doctor for more than 1.5 hours that I was scheduled for an appointment at 9:30 am. The examinations were done by themselves that they do in any wedge. There was even a blood test in the wedge.

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

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.

M
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 underwent liver transplantation

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.

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.
