Stumbled across Flymedi while I was…

Stumbled across Flymedi while I was looking for a place to get my nose done. I was contacted immediately by Mustafa and he offered me every detail that I needed. Overall the experience with them was great and I m extremely pleased with how smoothly everything went.

(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

5* service

From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

Great Service

After a long research for hair transplant, I came across Flymedi. I had several reasons to get this service from them such as getting rid of the bureaucratic process, handling accommodation issues, personal assistant, etc. I felt comfortable once it is done by Flymedi as full of customer-oriented style, I was just worried about the surgery which went well too! Thank you Flymedi team. Make sure that I will be letting people know your passion for helping patients who admit to have surgery done in Poland.

Recommended For Single-Side Inguinal Hernia Repair

Patients who are suffering from pain and discomfort because of their inguinal hernia and whose hernia is not possible to be massaged back into the abdomen can be the candidates for single-side inguinal hernia repair. However, many patients with an inguinal hernia do not require such treatment since their hernias disappear with time or are possible to be dealt with in the doctor's office.


Single-side inguinal hernia repairalso called,unilateral inguinal hernia repair is the condition of having an inguinal hernia on the only one side of the groin. Single-side inguinal hernia repair can be performed in two different ways either as alaparoscopic inguinal hernia repair or an open inguinal hernia operation. Single-side inguinal hernia repair belongs to the easiest cases for doctors. In comparison to a bilateral inguinal hernia repair, unilateral inguinal hernia repair is a relatively easier procedure, but it needs a different kind of management. 

How It Is Performed

Unilateral inguinal hernia repair can be performed in two different ways, including open inguinal hernia surgeryand laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair.

•Open inguinal hernia surgery- in open inguinal hernia surgery surgeons make a large cut and they push the hernia back and then close the muscle walls, therefore keeping bowels inside of the abdomen.

•Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair- in laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair surgeons make several small cuts and use different medical instruments including a laparoscope which is a tube-shaped tool with light and camera on it. Although laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair has a longer operation time and higher expenses, it is known to have a shorter recovery period.
