I travelled all the way from US by myself to come here and get rhinoplasty done, my surgery was a week ago by Dr Hasan duygulu he is extremely professional and excellent at his job. My whole stay was made very easy and comforting by Kate, Sultan and Enes. I have been coordinating with Kate this whole time from the start till the end. She has been amazing throughout and ensuring. They all were there for me when i needed them and even after. It was a great decision for me and i m totally proud of myself that i was able to find the best and proceeded with it. I thank everyone part of luna clinic and the hospital for your kind and loving hospitality. I will recommend coming to Dr Hasan to everyone and anyone without any hesitation

I would highly recommend Flymedi and Abud

I would highly recommend Flymedi. My mom had a gastric balloon fitted at the Luna clinic and everything went smoothly. When I was looking for a clinic in Turkey I found Flymedi as medical tourism, I contacted them by email and they got back to me in a short time. I was assigned Abud as health coordinator and I don’t have enough words to thank him. He’s professional but on top of that he loves what he’s doing and he does really care. As I said before I don’t have enough words to thank Abud and Flymedi and I’m so happy I made the right decision by choosing them. If you want to have the bed experience choose Flymedi and you won’t regret it.

Rhinoplasty 12 days ago- Luna Clinic- Dr. Hasan Duygulu

I had my rhinoplasty done exactly 12 days ago with doctor Hasan Duygulu. Before flying to Istanbul, I was very scared of doing this somewhere far from home but , from the first day of our arrival I knew I chose the right clinic; we met Sultan at the gate of the hospital, she was extremely nice and accommodating and organised, she comforted and still comforting me with answering every question and concerns possible and was with me through the whole before, during and after process which I am still experiencing btw. At the day of the surgery we met doctor Hasan, he is very nice and professional, I told him what I wanted and he took pictures of my face and showed me what my nose could approximately look like after the surgery and addressed my concerns and questions which were a lot btw :) he came to visit me right after I woke up and the next morning as well. The hospital was very luxurious and the nurses were very nice and all our needs were met perfectly, everything was super organised and easy. Today I removed my cast and I am very happy with the results as early as it is with the swelling I am very satisfied and I cant wait to see the final results which seem to be very close to the pictures he showed me. Thank you Luna clinic and especially Sultan for making this life changing decisions the best decision I made. The whole experience was easy, trusted and comfortable thanks to you

I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi.

If you are thinking about surgery in Turkey, I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi. Abud was my contact and is there for you 24/7. He was quick to respond and did his very best to answer every question and keep me calm in what can be, a new and scary experience. I would highly recommend and you can be sure you are lucky if he is your contact. The hospital was very clean and staff were very professional and kind. The doctor did an amazing job and I am thrilled!!

Totally recommend

The whole process went really smooth from the beginning, it was really easy to communicate with them. I had my mommy makeover done in June, 2021 and the only thing I regretted is putting off my surgery for some years because I did not want to travel abroad, but in the end it was all worth it. The prices are much lower and I was happy with my surgeon (Prof. Omer), he is such a friendly person and an amazing surgeon as well. I love my results and I've never felt so confident in my body, even before the pregnancy. I can recommend Flymedi and my surgeon in particular.

Not Recommended For Osteosarcoma Treatment

To determine the suitability to take bone cancer treatment, stages of bone cancer is essential. In early stages, all methods, even the osteosarcoma surgery, are obtainable, whereas in late stages, bone cancer surgery is generally not possible or effective.

Overview

Osteosarcoma is the most widespread kind of bone cancer. Specifically, in adolescents due to their fast growth, osteosarcoma is a frequent disease. Regarding adults, osteosarcoma may be seen in people over 60 or in cancer patients who received radiation therapy for other kinds of cancer.
Treatment of Osteosarcoma may be in several ways, involving radiation therapy, chemotherapy treatment, and osteosarcoma surgery. The particular bone cancer treatment kind relies upon the patient’s age, the place, and stage of cancer. Developed metastatic bone cancer will necessitate a more complicated method than the early stage of bone cancer.

Bone Cancer Symptoms
Bone pain is the most apparent symptom of bone cancer. Adolescents frequently feel natural bone pain due to fast bone growth and it is difficult to tell if the bone pain is normal or a bone cancer pain. Consequently, bone cancer symptoms is not acknowledged by many until the osteosarcoma progresses to late bone cancer stages.

Preparation

A detailed assessment about the medical history and medicines is the beginning of the preparations for osteosarcoma treatment. In this way, specialists will arrange the bone cancer treatment to the health of the patient and exclude the medicines which can disturb it.
Regarding radiation therapy and chemotherapy, you may better visit planned medical treatments beforehand, as it may be not possible for a while after these treatments.

How It Is Performed

Osteosarcoma treatment may be in diverse ways relying upon the stages of bone cancer and the patient's general condition. The classical components of osteosarcoma treatment are: 
• Chemotherapy – it may be administered before and after the osteosarcoma surgery or paired with radiation therapy. In chemotherapy, strong drugs are used in order to kill bone cancer. It may be received as a pill or an injection.
• Radiation Therapy – radiation therapy is used in a way similar to chemotherapy but rather than drugs, it uses radiation to kill bone cancer cells. It may be received as external radiation therapy (with a machine generating radiation) or internal radiation therapy (a pill).
• Bone Cancer Surgery – specialists try to eliminate the entire bone cancer-affected tissues. Occasionally it is used in later stages as well, so as to decelerate the development of osteosarcoma.

Recovery

The recovery from osteosarcoma treatment will be a long period. On the other hand, it generally relies upon the extent and doses of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and bone cancer surgery.
The recovery period may last weeks (bone cancer surgery) or even months or years (chemotherapy and radiation therapy). Chemotherapy and radiation therapy gives rise to several side effects which should (but not always do) diminish in time. In osteosarcoma surgery, an implant may be needed to compensate for removed parts of bones.

Risks

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy as osteosarcoma treatment may cause damage to lungs and other vital organs, internal bleeding and other complications. As for bone cancer surgery, it entails the risk of damage to blood vessels and nerves, and infection. In rare cases, amputation will become a necessity throughout osteosarcoma surgery due to the spread metastatic bone cancer.

Side Effects

The popular side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy are nausea, memory and concentration difficulties, neurological issues and general feeling of being tired.
Osteosarcoma surgery may cause lesser capability to use the operated limb, whether a hand or a leg.

Success Rates

Survival rate of osteosarcoma relies upon stages of bone cancer, but even for advanced cancer which didn’t spread to other organs, the survival rate of bone cancer is seem to be as high as 70%. For early-stage bone cancer patients, this percentage may be even higher, while metastatic bone cancer patients have less advantage to completely recover from it.

Faq
