The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

Nurse Yeliz is adorable and has always been by my side. She was also always available and answered all my questions. I have felt very well, thanks again to all I am very satisfied.

Recommended For Knee Ligament Surgery

Because of the pressure put on the knee ligaments while doing sports, many sports players experience ACL injuries or other types of knee ligament injury. Yet, not only sports players suffer from ACL injuries. In the first examination, doctors analyze the knee and choose to perform the knee arthroscopy operation to understand the damage and suggest an alternative knee injury treatment accordingly.

Not Recommended For Knee Ligament Surgery

Knee repair operation is not always needed in all the cases of knee ligament injury. Specifically, patients who are not sports players and not interested in sports can rest for their ligaments of the knee to get better. However, the requirement of the operation is also highly depended on the scope of knee injuries as well.

Overview

Knee ligament is a surgical operation that isperformed in the cases of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. ACL injuries are one of the most common knee injuries, specifically very common among sports players.Among ligaments of the knee, it is most often suspect to ruptures and other damage. Fortunately, knee ligament surgery often brings back old anterior cruciate ligament’s flexibility and allows many to continue a career in sports.

Preparation

Before undergoing the knee ligament surgery, some time should pass for initial swelling caused by knee ligament tears to ease. Also, the orthopedic surgeons who will perform your surgery should be informed about your medical conditions as well as the medicines you are taking in order to decide for the type and dose of the anesthesia procedure properly.

How It Is Performed

Stitching the torn ACL or other ligament tear does not solve the problem. For these reasons, orthopedic surgeons usually perform ACL reconstruction with part of other ligaments of the knee, either from the patient (autologous) or donor (autologous). In general, knee ligament operation is performed as a knee arthroscopy procedure. During the knee arthroscopy surgery, doctors make several small cuts rather than a single big one. That way, after the operation, the recovery period lasts shorter, and the risk of infection is less in comparison to traditional knee surgery. The arthroscope, which is a medical tool with a camera and light, and other medical tools are inserted through the incisions.The orthopedic surgeon attaches a knee ligament graft onto torn ACL and makes sure that it is tense enough to function properly. Then, a knee ligament repair comes to an end.

Recovery

Knee ligament surgery necessitates a long recovery period. A couple of weeks after the operation, patients might experience some amounts of pain since there is pressure put on the ligaments of the knee while walking. However, the pain caused by the pressure can be eased with painkillers.Additionally, pain and swelling are caused partially by synovial fluid and blood gathering in the patient's shin. 
In order to get the best results from the ligament treatment during the recovery period, patients should attend the rehabilitation sessions regularly and should not neglect to do exercises as well.

Risks

Even though the knee ligament surgery is generally completed successfully still, some of the patients may experience complications regarding the procedure. The risks of knee ligament surgery involve infection, long-lasting pain, the formation of blood clots, and stiffness of reconstructed knee ligaments.

Side Effects

Knee ligament surgery has several side effects that include initial swelling and bruising in addition to the experience of pain. Besides, patients who had knee ligament surgery need to get used to their new knee ligaments.

Success Rates

Knee ligament surgery and other kinds of knee ligament surgeries have a high success rate that is around 80%. In some of the cases, permanent knee reconstruction is not achieved after the knee ligament tear surgery, and this leads patients to struggle with torn ligament longer.

What Is the Difference Between Knee Replacement and Knee Ligament Surgery? 
The knee ligament surgery is a more traditional orthopedic procedure that is mainly concerned about torn ACL reconstruction.However, total knee replacement is an operation of larger scope and may cover not only ligaments of the knee but also other parts. 

What is the ACL Surgery Recovery Time? 
Patients who are not sports players can experience a partial ACL surgery recovery within 6 months. However, patients who are athletes and do sports regularly should wait for a year in order to finish their recovery period of ligament tear surgery.

What Is a Knee Arthroscopy? 
Knee arthroscopy is a kind of knee ligament operation that involves the medical tool called arthroscope, which involves a camera. In order to reach the operation site, rather than making a single big incision, with the use of arthroscope several minor incisions are made.
