Mom performed an operation for stomach cancer in Germany. The stomach was completely removed. As is known in this disease and in the mother's case, only such an operation is possible, and now she can enjoy life. And it's only thanks to Professor Oldhafer with the greatest experience in this field, who works at the Asclepios Barmbek clinic in Hamburg. We found a good doctor for mom on the site bookimed.com, where good medical coordinators work that help people and know everything. Thank you so much!

The patient was treated of hypertension

Hello! We were very pleased to cooperate with the "Bookimed" service and with our coordinator Lisa Dudnik. Starting from correspondence and ending with the trip, the organization of all documents and stay in the clinic - everything was on top. We turned to this service with the question of selecting a clinic that deals with patients with hypertension at a young age. In Ukraine, unfortunately, doctors did not want to understand, the tests were done incorrectly, there was even a situation when the doctor wrote a diagnosis that does not exist, it was very frustrating, and the health condition only worsened. Lisa found several clinics for us and sent our extracts and some tests there. As a result, it was decided that we will still go to the Asclepios clinic in Germany, since it has a nephrology department that specializes in hypertension at a young age, we also found many good reviews and information about doctors. Dr. Meyer, our attending physician, described to us in advance what tests and examinations should be done in Asklepios in order to understand what causes the increase in pressure. And also to us have sent approximately the sum which will be spent for these researches. As a result, we spent 5 days in Hamburg, we were given all the tests, examination and changed the drugs, since those that were prescribed in Ukraine, are banned in Germany and have long ceased to be produced. At the moment we are taking medication and contacting the coordinator with Dr. Mayer if there are any questions. I also liked the translator Vladimir, whom we also received the service. He accompanied us in Hamburg for all procedures and all consultations and even after our departure he decided some questions with our treating physician. Therefore, we can safely recommend this service to cooperation!

5 minutes of communication with a doctor-600euro plus a hotel-400 add a flight or transport -350 and 300 euros other costs and the result is NULL. It turns out that everyone has staphylococcosis and it is not necessary to treat it!

We operated on the Kindler Clinic St. Augustine, the children's hospital Asclepios. This is where patients come from all over Europe, very much from Japan, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates. We had many patients from Munich and Hanover, although these cities have their own cardiac centers. The prices are lower than in Berlin. Professionalism of the staff at the highest level. We are very grateful to this clinic, the doctors are super! If you are on a paid basis, the operation will necessarily be done by the chefs of the clinic, their two. The price of this does not change. Berlin gave us the price for the operation of the chief 40 000 euros, in St. Augustine 30 000 euros. At the same time, the most complex operations are also done by the chefs of the clinic, regardless of whether you are paying or not. We have the most positive reviews about the clinic !!!

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!

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 following conditions must be met for a patient to become eligible for the procedure:

  • tumor localized in the head of the pancreas;
  • cancer is not metastatic;
  • removal of the tumor does not put a patient at risk.

Determining if a patient is eligible for the operation is a challenging task. Only the most advanced imaging techniques and best Whipple surgeons may provide an entirely accurate diagnosis. It is advisable to receive the second opinion on patient’s case with uncertain eligibility.

Indications and contraindications for Whipple surgery

Whipple operation is the only surgical method to treat tumor of the pancreas. The procedure is mainly performed in combination with chemo- and radiotherapeutic exposure. Besides cancer of pancreas, Whipple procedure is prescribed to patients with the following diagnoses:

  • malignant tumor of the gallbladder;
  • duodenal cancer;
  • pancreatitis;
  • bile duct cancer;
  • small bowel cancer;
  • ampullary cancer;
  • neuroendocrine tumors.

There are following contraindications to the procedure:

  • the tumor is not localized in the pancreas head;
  • patient condition is too severe to endure the operation;
  • HIV;
  • severe or chronic infections (hepatitis, STDs);
  • cardiopulmonary comorbidities.

Types of Whipple operation

Whipple surgery can be done in 2 ways:

  1. Open surgery method. This is the most commonly used technique. A surgeon makes an incision in patient’s abdomen to access the pancreas.
  2. Laparoscopic surgery. It is a minimally invasive variation of Whipple operation. The procedure is performed through several small incisions in patient’s abdomen. A doctor operates with special long instruments under control of optical camera. This technique puts patient’s body under less stress.

The procedures are performed in best hospitals for Whipple surgery by top Whipple surgeons.

Whipple surgery in details

Preoperative preparation for Whipple surgery

A patient is connected to intravenous line that supplies medicine and nutrition during the operation. An epidural catheter or spinal injection is administered. Medications delivered in that way block nerves in the abdominal area. This is done in order to prevent severe pain syndromes during recovery.

Surgery process

The invasion is performed by a team of physicians: top surgeons for Whipple procedure, nurses, and anesthesiologists. The surgery takes up to 12 hours to complete. A patient stays under general anesthesia the whole time. An operation starts when an incision is made in patient’s abdomen. After all affected organs are removed, a surgeon reconnects remaining intestines and pancreas to restore the functioning of digestive system.

After the surgery

In most cases, patients are placed in the general surgical unit after the operation. Patient’s vitals are monitored periodically to exclude complications and infections. The diet will be scheduled and advanced slowly, to restore the functions of the digestive system. Recovery time after the pancreaticoduodenectomy Whipple procedure takes up to 2 weeks.

If a patient’s condition is severe or there are complications during the surgery, a patient is rushed to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Nutrition and medications are delivered intravenously and patient’s vitals are constantly monitored. Catheters are used to drain urine and various fluids from the surgery area. Whipple surgery cost may increase due to the use of additional medications.

Before and after Whipple surgery

Before and after WHipple surgery

Rehabilitation

Patients are prescribed personal diet by a nutritionist. Rehabilitation lasts for 4-6 weeks on average. In most cases, additional care is not required after a patient is dismissed from a hospital. If patient’s state is concerning, they may be required to stay near the hospital to undergo check-ups. For some patients, it is advisable to rehabilitate in specialized facilities.

Outlook

Life expectancy for patients who underwent Whipple surgery depends on the particular case. On average, patients lead relatively fulfilling life post operation.

To counter some long lasting side effects, patients may be required to:

  • stick to a strict diet;
  • take insulin;
  • take pancreatic enzymes to aid food digestion.

How to receive Whipple surgery abroad?

Submit a request on Bookimed website and our Medical Doctor will contact you on the shortest notice. The Doctor will provide you with any required information regarding the surgery, including the cost of Whipple procedure in your particular case.

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.)

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 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.

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!

The patient was treated of astrocytoma

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 patient was treated of lymphoma

Good afternoon, I applied to Bukimed to help in the selection of a clinic for the treatment of lymphoma in Turkey. They reacted quite quickly, in the morning a consultant from the Medipol clinic called. All very quickly - quickly calculated prices, provided a transfer, BUT ... as soon as we got to the clinic, the prices suddenly grew. 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. And then decide, recommend them in the future or not.

The patient was treated of acute lymphoblastic leukemia

My close family relative was diagnosed with Acute Leukaemia a year ago at age of 26 and he needed a bone narrow transplant as the very last option to save his life. This procedure is not available in Ukraine and we spent weeks searching for the most affordable clinics with a good reputation. On January 12th, a few minutes right after visiting the website I was reached by Aleksey Berkovets from Bookimed.
He was an extremely polite, helpful and very professional. I really liked that compare to other services he didn`t promote any specific clinic or country, he gave me an options to choose from.
After only one short week on January 20th Dmytro was landed in Istanbul to start his treatment in Medipol Clinic!!

Thank you for your constant support Aleksey! You are much appreciated!

During this time, we examined everything that includes the standard package! After the examination, we were taken to the dining room at the clinic and fed for free! After 3 working days, the results were already ready! The doctor with the help of an interpreter explained everything to us, told us and showed us! Great! But expensive! It was worth it!

The patient underwent gastrointestinal examination

I conducted a video consultation with Professor K. Rangger. I can say that: 1) I can evaluate the work of the professor as very good. 2) There was one misunderstanding when interacting with Nordwest. I was sure that the employees of the clinic are obliged to give me the opinion of the professor in writing in Russian and German. But then it turned out that they do not have such a duty. Nevertheless, they gave me these documents. Of course, I believe that this characterizes them well. 3) In the course of my communication with managers of Nordwest, there were still some undesirable moments. They sometimes spoke disrespectfully to me. I believe that this is unacceptable, especially in such a good clinic and for the money that they need to pay. In general, I want to say that my general impression about the clinic is good.

The patient was treated of stomach cancer

All very well Responsive and professional doctors, especially doctor, professor Kraus. Operation was successfully completed. It took 4 months and I recently went to the control in this clinic. I did not like the food immediately after the operation. I could not do anything because of stomach resection, and they bring me sandwiches with sausage, cheese and all that is absolutely not suitable for me. There you can make an order, but they change it in their own way. They have no cooking block of their own, they are served by some kind of food factory, delivered to the clinic in large containers. I recommend this clinic for treatment, do not regret it.

Thank you, from our first telephone conversation about my desire to be treated in Germany, it all began. I was operated by Professor Dr. Thomas Kraus, Head of Surgery at the Nord-West Clinic in Frankfurt. On March 13, I leave the hospital. On the recommendation of Tatyana, to whom you gave my contacts and some materials of my disease, I got acquainted with the site of Dr. Thomas Kraus, read about his great international authority, vast experience in cancer surgery and chose it. I am very pleased that I received from you the initial competent information about the issue of interest to me. You sent my contacts to Tatiana at the Nord-West clinic, where I also received answers to my questions. Everything was decided very quickly and, most importantly, my health problems were solved. Employees of the company Phoenix turned out to be professionals in their field and their help in organizing my trip is invaluable. Once again I express my gratitude to you!

The patient was treated of uterine fibroids

My uterine fibroids with indications for surgical intervention (removal) were diagnosed. In search of a clinic abroad, I remembered that I had heard about the Bookimed site and left my application there. The site itself contains an extensive database of clinics in different countries, describing their specialization, leading specialists and patient feedback. After I left the application on the site with me very quickly contacted by e-mail and offered to agree on a convenient time for a phone call to discuss all the details. Subsequently, we several times called up with the same specialist (Ivan Koval), who was engaged in me from the very beginning and until the selection of the clinic. From communication with Ivan, I had extremely positive impressions: the competent in the field of medicine, which we discussed, benevolent and polite, knows how to listen to the interlocutor, punctual, always in touch, is able to convincingly provide information, explains why one or another clinic is recommended. As a result, I was chosen clinic Nordwest in Frankfurt in Germany, where the highly skilled surgeon-gynecologist Professor Jorg Engel operates. After choosing a clinic, I was engaged in their office of medical tourism "Phoenix". I was given in advance full information about possible treatment options and operations, provisional cost, as well as information about the surgeon. After preliminary discussion, I came to the clinic for a full-time consultation with the professor. The company "Phoenix" provides full support to the patient, starting from a meeting at the airport; They are also present at all consultations as an interpreter from German. After the consultation, we appointed the date of the operation, to which I flew in about 1.5 months. "Phoenix" provided visa support, they provided all the necessary documents, a visa was received at the German consulate in Moscow in two days. The condition of the clinic is that a few days before the operation the patient should undergo premedication: to pass tests and smears on infections, to pass a health questionnaire, and also to have a conversation with an anesthesiologist and a specialist (in my case a gynecologist) about the forthcoming operation and possible risks. The operation was successful, the removal of the myomium was performed laparoscopically (although the professor had previously voiced the risk that it might be necessary to go on a cavity operation). Foreign patients are accommodated in VIP class rooms (single rooms, with panoramic views of Frankfurt, comparable in quality to rooms in a high class hotel). Very good aftercare, constant monitoring of doctors and nurses, all very professional, attentive and friendly. Three meals a day (choice from the menu) plus two snacks. I was discharged from the hospital on the fifth day after the operation. The state of health was good, absolutely normal for a return flight to Moscow on the same day. Definitely I can recommend the clinic Nordwest for gynecological treatment and operations.

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!

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

The patient was treated of breast cancer

Doctors of the clinic are qualified, speak English well. But the organization of treatment, that is, all these coordinators and translators already when you are in India, is a huge minus of the process. Simply huge. Expectations of everything and everywhere for hours, sometimes at times, poor awareness, a terrible accent on Russian, that one can understand a lot to the exact opposite, ignorance of medical terms, that is, only life can translate. I accompanied mamutna treatment, I speak English a little, therefore something accelerated due to this. One patient should not go, look for an accompanying person if other countries do not fit the prices for treatment. If someone is traveling alone or an accompanying person does not know English, the process will spoil your nerves. The very examination and treatment, surgery, everything is at a good level. But before the ability to organize everything painlessly for the patient, it will still come to BLK not soon. I do not know, as in other clinics in India, I think it's the same. Translators are different here, and the problems are the same. So in the whole country I think. But if there is no way out, you can entrust local doctors to the health. The patient is well fed in the hospital and the accompanying person. Chambers of any size isolate the patient with curtains around the perimeter, you see only the staff, but keep in mind that the multiple rooms are very noisy. Who prays in Arabic for the whole room, who sings the song, who plays the game with sound effects, who is screaming on the phone, because there is still no silence, people still have groans for the illnesses of people ... they do not do anybody for unconnected phones, loud talks and other inadequacy.

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.

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 results of the tests (biopsy) simply shocked me !!! The question "What to do?" Did not come out of my head. Where to run, where to seek salvation?
The choice was between the three countries: Russia, Israel and Germany. Under the pressure of the opinion of relatives stopped in the south direction. After searching the Internet and with the clinic they decided - Assuta. All aspects, from preparation, diagnosis and ending with the operation itself - brachytherapy - are all at the highest professional level! The operation was carried out jewelly by Chaim Matskin. Already passed a month, the body struggles with the ailment. And all this thanks to the creators and saviors from Assuta.

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.

I found out about this clinic on line,got in touch and went in for a specific treatment that they arehighly rated for with Dr. Elizur. Our initial contact,I trusted it will be helpful for me. I payed quite a lot of cash my visit of 15minutes consultation. I came home to where I live,Switzerland,emailed to schedule the actual procedure,very slow response,and at the end even calling his assistant didn't help,I gave up on the whole thing. No answer for a month now. Nu? I believe Dr. Should be there to help every patients equally with care and to give an answer. I really don't understand what goes on there.

I remain grateful from all my soul to all those people who helped me to get a good vision. I have not had very good eyesight since my childhood, but it began to strain me strongly only during my studies in high school and at the university. Then I already knew that I would have to have an operation to correct vision. I'm from St. Petersburg, I chose from a number of elite clinics, but I was not satisfied with the high price and no one gave me any guarantees, and it frightened me. I decided in my next vacation period not to go to the sea, but to correct vision abroad. I found WP German Med, wrote to them on the mail, they answered me with a list of clinics that can accept me at these dates and gave me all the coordinates of specialists and the names of doctors who could conduct the operation. Naturally, I thought a couple of days, but still agreed. I was attracted to the terms of the company, translator, coordinator, if necessary, a transfer to the clinic plus a 24-hour hotline. But the biggest plus was that the price for the services of the company WP German Med plus surgery in the clinic, and this is also the work of the professor, cost me exactly the same amount as I was asked in St. Petersburg for the operation. I honestly say that's why I chose to travel to Germany than to stay in St. Petersburg.

The patient was treated in this clinic

In October 2016, a son (five years) was operated on, a diagnosis of the pilocitic astrocytoma of the brain, on the cerebellum. The surgeon Ulrich-Wilhelm Tomale operated. The operation was brilliant! The tumor was removed completely !!! On the fourth day the child could already walk, on the sixth day we were discharged! Straight miracles. Many thanks to all the staff of the clinic: 29 stations, 35 intensive care units and, of course, all the doctors who performed the operation. The attitude of the staff is beyond praise. It is very strong that parents can be with the child even in intensive care immediately after surgery. The child fell asleep and woke up with his parents and his toys. Thanks again!

The patient was treated in this clinic

We just came from there. My mother lay in the hospital in the department of endocrinology: she has diabetes with complications, like kidney failure, retinopathy, etc. Approximately 10 days. We are a little sorry that we went. We have no complaints about doctors and their professionalism, but the situation itself not only disappointed, but shocked. Nurses can not get into a vein - my mother's arms were completely in hematomas, I had to find and show them veins myself, because I myself am a health worker. Finally, once again they had to call someone from the intensive care unit to cope with this simple affair. Moreover, during such manipulations hygiene rules were not respected-I had to demand that the nurse, who was sent from the intensive care unit, sterilized his hands and put on gloves. Nobody followed whether the patient was taking the medicine or not (my mother was almost blind), and I had to stay there myself all day and give her medication. But purely human, people are wonderful. Attention, courtesy and good manners. On the other hand, all this could be due to the acute shortage of qualified personnel, which Germany is currently experiencing.
