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 Hodgkin Lymphoma Treatment
Some patients with other diseases or very late stages of Hodgkin’s lymphoma may not be able to undergo the lymphoma treatment including chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy. However, this is left to the discretion of patient’s doctor.
Duration Of Operation
Up to one hour
There is no specific preparation for Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment. Both chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy do not require patients to undergo a certain preparation routine. However, it is better to inform your oncologist about other medical conditions you suffer from and medications you take. In this way, your lymphoma treatment will be tailored according to your needs and possibilities. It is also worth taking under consideration to undergo other medical treatments before starting your chemotherapy.
How It Is Performed

Since Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a lymph nodes cancer, surgery is not performed as a part of lymphoma treatment. Instead, oncologists focus on effective chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy as means to eradicate this cancer.

• Chemotherapy treatment involves the use of drugs, which destroy cancer cells. There are many types of such drugs; the choice is left to your oncologist with regard for the exact type of your Hodgkin’s lymphoma as well as your overall medical condition.

• Radiation therapy for Hodgkin’s lymphoma may be of two types. In external radiation therapy, radiation is emitted by a special machine – cancer cells are bombarded from the outside. In internal radiation therapy, radioactive material is injected into patient’s bloodstream in order to destroy large B-cells causing Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Both of these treatments are rather short but there are several sessions of them, their exact number depending on patient’s situation and the stage of Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy, while very successful in fighting Hodgkin’s lymphoma as well as other types of cancer such as non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas, can be destructive to patient’s body. Many side effects of these lymphoma treatments may continue for months or even years. Still, their high effectiveness against Hodgkin’s lymphoma makes them primary methods of struggling with this lymph nodes cancer.
There are certain risks connected with Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy may cause secondary cancers in the long run, such as breast cancer or lung cancer. However, this does not have to be the case with every patient. Additionally, Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivors are generally advised to do routine check-ups so secondary cancer should be detected in early stage. Another common complication related to chemotherapy and radiation therapy is infertility.
Side Effects

Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment’s side effects include:

• General weakness, tiredness

• Memory problems

• Weakened immune system

• Bleeding

and many others. There are various side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, which may vary from person to person.

Success Rates
Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment, in contrary to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment, has a high success rate, estimated at 85%. That is because it is a well-known disease, attacking only B-type lymphocytes.

What is the Difference between Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?

Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a B-cell lymphoma, which means that only B-type lymphocytes are changing. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is just a category, in which there are many different types of blood cancers, B-cell as well as T-cell lymphomas. Additionally, Hodgkin’s lymphoma is usually concentrated in lymph nodes (hence lymph nodes cancer) while non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas may appear in different locations. Finally, it is easier to spot a Hodgkin’s lymphoma rather than non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas due to well-known symptoms.

Is Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy the only Treatment?

While there are other Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatments in development, chemotherapy combined with radiation therapy are thought to be the most effective ones so far.

Are Stages of Lymphoma Important?

Of course. As in other types of cancer, in the case of Hodgkin’s lymphoma the more advanced stages of lymphoma, the smaller is the chance of surviving this cancer. For this reason, it is advised to pay attention to Hodgkin’s lymphoma symptoms such as swollen lymph nodes and night sweats.
