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.

Recommended For Soft Tissue Sarcoma Treatment

Under the group of soft tissue sarcoma, there are several kinds of cancer with different origins and techniques for fighting them that involve:
• leiomyosarcoma
• liposarcoma
• synovial sarcoma
• fibrosarcoma
• Ewing’s sarcoma
The most common soft tissue sarcoma symptoms involve lumps that are easily felt when a sarcoma grows in legs or arms. Also, soft tissue sarcomas that are in the abdomen are generally unnoticed until they develop signs or cause other sarcoma symptoms such as internal bleeding or abdominal pain, that can be mistaken for other medical conditions as well.

Not Recommended For Soft Tissue Sarcoma Treatment

Some of the patients who are suffering from late-stage soft tissue sarcoma cancer might not be suitable for sarcoma treatment other than palliative one, which aims to ease the pain rather than curing the patient. Also, other medical problems the patient has can affect the variety of soft tissue sarcoma treatment or can even terminate the process due to the patient’s overall bad state.

Overview

Soft tissue sarcomais a type of cancer that involves a group of sarcoma cancer types that grow from soft tissue such as fat, muscles, blood vessels, etc. Other types of sarcoma develop from bones. As for sarcoma and carcinoma differentiation, sarcomas usually have a spherical shape and do not spread to lymphatic nodes and other organs as easily as carcinomas. Therefore, they are relatively easier to eliminate cancer surgery.
Soft tissue sarcoma treatment can be performed in different ways, including sarcoma surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, in addition to the novel, experimental therapies, aiming cancer cells directly. 

Preparation

The patients should inform their doctors about the medical conditions they have as well as medications taken for them. This way, an appropriate sarcoma treatment can be planned for the patient.
Depending on the area affected by soft tissue sarcoma, the preparation for sarcoma surgery differs. If the patient has soft tissue sarcoma in limbs, then generally fewer preparations would be needed. In abdominal sarcoma, the patient is asked to fast for several hours before the operation.
If the patient’s soft tissue sarcoma treatment includes chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy, it is recommended to undergo other prearranged medical procedures before their first treatment session, since these treatments’ side effects can interfere with other procedures.

How It Is Performed

Sarcoma treatment may be performed in many ways, such as:
• Soft tissue sarcoma surgery – Especially in earlier stages of sarcoma, the surgeons might attempt to cut out cancerous tissues. Occasionally, this procedure might involve the amputation of the affected limb as well.
• Chemotherapy – During chemotherapy, strong drugs are used to fight cancer cells
• Radiation therapy – in this procedure, radiation is used to eliminate cancer cells. It can be performed as external radiation therapy (radiation is generated by a machine) or internal radiation therapy (radioactive elements are given to the patient by injection)
• Biologic therapy – In this treatment type, new generations of drugs are used to fight cancer cells in a more precise way.

Recovery

Depending on the treatment type used for sarcoma and the area treated the soft tissue sarcoma treatment recovery period changes. The patient may be required to stay in the hospital for a few days after the sarcoma operation. Also, the side effects of chemotherapy or radiation therapy might last for a longer time, sometimes even for years.

Risks

Just like in any other type of cancer treatment, sometimes soft cell sarcoma treatment causes some complications as well, such as:
• Bleeding and problems with closing the wound
• Damage to lungs
• Problems with organs such as heart or kidney
• Neurological problems

Side Effects

If the patient’s soft tissue sarcoma surgery involves limb amputation process, then the patient must get used to living with a prosthesis. Also, chemotherapy and radiation therapy might cause some side effects, including:
• a general feeling of weakness and tiredness
• Problems with memory and concentration 
• Difficulties with the digestive system 

Success Rates

Thesurvival rate of 5-year soft tissue sarcoma is high, reaching 83% for sarcomas that are early-diagnosed and 16% for later stages. However, more than half of all soft tissue sarcomas are detected in the early stages, and these results become better and better as time passes.
