The patient was treated of paraganglioma inHELIOS Berlin Buch Hospital

Good afternoon to all patients who will read my review. We passed in the clinic treatment with radioactive iodine MBIG-131. Everything was organized according to the dates and very quickly. Excellent and caring interpreters accompany you throughout the treatment. Doctors are very responsive, and are also fully responsible for their patient. As for the price policy, it can be brewed and does not correspond to the original amount, which will provide accounting accounting. But in any case, this treatment is available and if compared with other countries, the price is much lower. I wish everyone success and good health !!

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.

Many thanks to the company Bukimed, Katerina Potapova, for understanding, for patience.

Nothing superfluous was not assigned to m not included in the bill. The clinic is very large, in a beautiful suburb of Berlin. An interpreter is necessary if there is no English knowledge, and if there is, then all doctors and assistants and interns speak good English, as well as medical staff.

The patient underwent hip replacement inHELIOS Berlin Buch Hospital

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.

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.

Good afternoon! I want to express my great gratitude to Svetlana Kalinichenko for her help, the selection of the doctor and the clinic.
Everything was very quick and inexpensive. Unfortunately, in Spain, where we were treated before (the father of diabetes) did not see a few more of our problems (such as nervous exhaustion, anemia, etc.), everything was written off for diabetes. Dr. Kashevagi not only consulted on our main disease, but also prescribed medication and special stockings from pain in the legs, after a couple of days it became better. A very sensitive doctor, a real professional, he has a long reception, answers all questions, an attentive individual approach to each patient, we really liked it, he will be observed. Thanks to Svetlana Kalinichenko, Dr. Kashevaga and the clinic of the Meoclinic.

Sincerely, Natalia and Vladimir

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!

We were very pleased with the treatment in Germany. It's a shame that high-quality medical services have to go abroad, because in Volgograd we were not able to provide the necessary assistance. We were met at the airport, and immediately settled. The hospital is very clean, the doctors smile, all polite. By the way, they are very grateful to the translator, she worked with us very much. Once again to all the organizers of the bookimed many thanks, we are all very pleased. All of you health!

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 underwent hip replacement inHELIOS Berlin Buch Hospital

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.

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.

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 was treated of prostate cancer inHELIOS Berlin Buch Hospital

Looking back on the past life, I can say that I did not go to doctors regularly. I thought this: the disease itself came, she herself will leave. Only sometimes I went on an ECG, because at the age of twelve I suffered myocarditis. And since I worked very hard for many years, I can say that I worked as a "slave on galleys," I always stopped near the pharmacy and measured the pressure. My wife and I have a very happy family life and I was worried that one day a love relationship could be misfired. For this reason, I underwent routine prophylactic examinations of the prostate.

In 2001 I retired. At the insistence of my wife, I went to the examination. Frequent urination, which worried me a bit, I explained by the supercooling of the bladder. In the course of the survey, among others, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) was determined. In December 2001, it was: 3.1 μg / l. I was told that there was nothing to worry about. But I did not relax and (together with my wife!) With some skepticism found on the Internet a lot of information regarding the prostate and began to regularly (on a fee basis) determine my PSA.

After a year, he was 4.2. After another 8 months, 5.0 μg / l. Then he froze for a while. In 2005, he again crawled up from 5.5, bypassing 7.0, and amounted to 10.1 mkg / l in December 2005. At the end of January I had to do a biopsy. Out of 12 samples, tissues 2 were positive. For me it was not a surprise, but, as they say, hope dies last. The biopsy did not seem to me painful, although somewhat unpleasant. As it seems to me, it is not necessary to be afraid of it. Already in mid-January, I was internally prepared for a serious test called "prostate carcinoma". At the same time, my wife learned about the event held by the self-help group on the topic "Prostate". At this event, the professor, MD, A. Böhle should make a report on the high degree of risk in the prostate and about brachytherapy, which I already knew from the Internet. In this event my wife and I took part. Professor A. Böhle answered our questions with exhaustive answers. I felt psychologically well prepared to hear the "fatal news" from the results of a biopsy. Our solution, i.e. not mine, but the decision taken by my wife and myself, in case of passing a serious test, was taken in advance.

To conduct brachytherapy by Professor Böhle at the HELIOS hospital named after Agnes Karl in Bad Schwartau, I was assigned the day of the operation in May 2006. In 14 days the wedding of our youngest daughter was due. I so wanted to be in shape again to this day. Preliminary examinations that were usual for such a case were completed. It was found out that I also have an enlarged prostate, the so-called benign prostatic hyperplasia, and it needs to be reduced (with the help of medications) before the operation.

Brachytherapy went according to plan: I was implanted 81 micro-source of radioactive radiation (the so-called "Seeds"). After 2 days I was at home, finished the remaining work in the garden and started preparing for the wedding together with my wife. As expected, the wedding sang and danced until the morning. I well endured this holiday, although I had to put up with side effects (frequent urge to urinate and frequent urination). Over time, erectile dysfunction arose. To eliminate it, I take tablets, so-called, PD 5- inhibitors.

Almost 3 years have passed since the brachytherapy. I can say that I feel well, there was no recurrence of cancer. From the perspective of today, I consider brachytherapy to be one of the best and most sparing methods of treating prostate carcinoma. However, I recommend that every man undergo preventive examinations, and in addition to them at regular intervals determine the value of PSA. It, although it is not a tumor marker, but it should be considered as a very important medical parameter. When complaints about the condition of the bladder and prostate should be addressed in time to the urologist. I confess, I, perhaps, long delayed. Perhaps I would have created more favorable medical conditions for brachytherapy, for example, fewer micro sources of "Seeds". But, as they say, to know where to fall, there would straws and podstelil. A spouse or spouse should also be publicly informed about changes in the health sphere that have a negative impact or can affect the sexual life. In my opinion, this will have a positive impact on the strengthening of mutual trust and mutual consent. However, medical measures aimed at treating the disease as such, such as cancer, must always be in the center of attention.

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.
