My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Overview

Cardiology is a branch of medicine related to heart and its diseases. Cardiology means literally “the science of heart” – in Greek cardia + logia. While today it is one of the most important specializations in medicine, heart remained for many years away from physicians’ interest. For thousands of years, people believed that the liver was far more important organ than it, although some authors, such as Aristotle acknowledged its role as a heat-producing organ.

Still, with the general development of medicine, people started to be aware of the heart’s profound role in the body. Especially in the last 100 years, cardiology experienced a revolutionary development, with the dawn of invasive cardiology procedures. Evolution of anesthesia and disinfection helped cardiology specialists conducting more and more complex operations. From heart catheterization to open heart surgery and even heart transplants– cardiologists reached astonishing milestones in order to save lives.

As we have already said, the heart remains in the center of Cardiology's interest. It is one of the crucial body organs and its failure threatens health and life. The heart is responsible for blood circulation. With no blood pumped through vessels, there is no life – plain and simple as it is, many people tend to forget about it and arrive in cardiology clinic only when they experience a serious cardiac problem. Cardiology check-ups remain for many an unknown reality, addressed to already ill people. However, this is not the case. A cardiology hospital welcomes everybody, who wants to learn about their heart and blood circulation system.

Heart Surgery – When do you need a heart Surgery?

Another common prejudice is that only elder people experience heart problems or heart failure. Every year many young adults experience chest pain, heart disease, even heart attacks. Your heart may need heart specialist at any point of your life, no matter if you are young or old. Even if you seem totally healthy, your physician thanks to regular cardiology check-ups may find dangerous changes in the heart before they develop and deal with them in advance. Neglecting your heart care may be a costly mistake. Thankfully, more and more people decide for cardiology exam before any sign of heart problem appears.

Cardiology Abroad

The progress of globalization, together with the appearance of cheap airlines has led to growing phenomenon of health tourism. Among others, cardiology clinics enjoy a steady flow of foreign patients, looking for cheap, high-quality treatments for cardiology diseases. Many countries, as well as private companies, aimed at facilitating this trend, employing the best cardiology physicians in top-end cardiology hospitals. To sum up, choosing a foreign clinic for cardiology procedures means more affordable service without resigning from quality. More than that, foreign, touristic destinations mean pleasant heart surgery recovery. As we know – a patient’s well-being is one of the crucial factors in successful recovery, therefore providing a relaxing, interesting environment may be what they need to become healthy.

Most Common Heart Surgeries

  • Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting – in coronary artery bypass grafting, a coronary artery blocked by plaque is bypassed thanks to the intervention of heart doctor.

  • Pacemaker Surgery – pacemaker is a device, which helps to keep steady the heart rhythm in cases of severe arrhythmia. Many patients decide to undergo pacemaker placement in a cardiology hospital abroadbecause pacemaker cost can be more affordable abroad.

  • Heart Transplantation – heart transplantation surgery is one of the most complex and most expensiveheart surgeries. Failing heart of a patient may be replaced with a transplant. In this way, a person has a chance to lead a normal life for many years to come. Since heart transplantation cost might be very expensive in some countries, some patients choose to have this procedure abroad thanks to medical tourism.

  • Heart Valve Replacement Surgery – Heart valve controls the blood flow in the heart. Sometimes it becomes weak or doesn’t close totally, disturbing the natural blood flow. In such a case, a team of cardiology physicians has to replace this heart valve with a transplant.

  • Angioplasty procedure – Angioplasty procedure is one of the most popular heart surgery in general and many patients want to undergo it in one of health tourism destinations. Angioplasty means inserting a special device which may be pumped with air once in the proximity of plaque in a blood vessel and by doing this – destroy or flatten this plaque, allowing for normal blood flow. An angioplasty cost can change depending on many reasons. It can change according to cardiology surgeon, or the location of the cardiology clinic.
