Angela went above and beyond my expectations. She is very friendly and you can always feel at ease contacting her. She made sure I was comfortable with our choice of surgeon Dr. Can Karaca and set up a video call for me. Always ready to help and answer any questions (she would always be available despite the 7 hour time difference)! I wasn’t really sure about traveling to Istanbul, Turkey for my procedure until I met Angela and she explained everything from start to finish and stood behind her words to always be of assistance. Mind you I have been researching for months now for a good doctor and went back and forth between waiting 2 years to get my surgery done in Canada or even traveling to Mexico for it! I was thinking Turkey would be a difficult route due to time difference and the distance but I’m very happy I chose to go to Turkey with Flymedi and I’m glad my agent was Angela Sabou! Do not hesitate to work with Flymedi and especially request Angela if you can!!! - a very satisfied client

Adonis Fertility International Caring Professionals

After trying IVF unsuccessfully in the US for many years Maria from Adonis Fertility International gave me hope. I was very impressed by her work ethic and I trusted she would work hard at helping us become parents. Her communication was top-notch. I choose Adonis because of Maria and then worked with Amy, Nancy, and Ivanna and ALL were Amazing. Everything is broken down for you in steps and very organized. There was always someone there to answer a question you may. Its been a very smooth process, with all the legal documents and made transporting the biomaterial stress-free. We are still in our beginning stages and I will give another review at the end but everything so far has been excellent and I would recommend Adonis to any US couple looking to try IVF and hopefully become parents.

Excellent service

Excellent service. I was really hesitant at first, because I’ve never done anything like this before, but Kirstie did a great job of answering all my questions & concerns, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using this service.

At the beginning, I was very hesitant about having my surgeries, especially the idea of having them in Turkey, which is a country located across the ocean of where I come from, the United States of America. When I initially started my research, I came across Flymedi, and I strongly believe that connecting with them was the best decision I have made in regards of having my desired surgeries. After entering my contact information, I was contacted from Flymedi by an agent named Abud. On one hand, Abud has been a great assist and support to my journey, as he was involved in every step throughout the process. He was very responsive to all my concerns and inquiries before and after the operations. On the other hand, everyone at the clinic that I was referred to (EstEthica) was very nice and welcoming. The in-person consultant on site (Lamia) was extremely helpful and kind. She, along with the whole clinic staff, made me feel so comfortable and made the whole trip seem as smooth as possible, despite the discomfort after the surgeries. In terms of the results, I can not speak of this just yet as it has only been a week since I have had my operations. However, I will definitely come back within a couple of months to update my review and speak about the results and any other additional notes along the way. In a nutshell, all I can say that I am grateful for everything so far, and I truly appreciate everyone that was involved in this process! P.S. as a word of advice, if you are having a hair transplant operation, I highly recommend having it at least 3 - 4 days before your departure flight back home, as the post operation instructions are a bit intense and not being in a rush would significantly help with the recovery process.

Recommended For Laparoscopic Appendectomy

A patient with appendicitis may experience pain in the abdomen region, loss in the appetite, diarrhea, fever, frequent and painful urination, nausea, and so on. There might be a different kind of reasons for appendicitis to occur such as cancer, infections, or stool remaining in intestines.However, why in some people these factors become the causes of appendicitis and others do not suffer from it remains largely unknown. It is estimated that as much as 5% of the population will suffer from appendicitis during their lifetime.

Not Recommended For Laparoscopic Appendectomy

For some situations, clinicians choose antibiotics for the treatment of appendicitis. Though, patients usually need emergency appendectomy to be performed so as not to have an internal infection and ruptured appendix.Many of them will be treated with laparoscopic appendectomy procedure due to its being a superior form of appendix removal. Furthermore, if the appendix was ruptured because of acute appendicitis, surgeons would choose to perform open appendectomy surgery over laparoscopic appendectomy.

Overview

Laparoscopic appendectomy surgeryis a medical procedure performed for removing the appendix. The infected appendix is called appendicitis, and when a patient experiences appendicitis, appendectomy is recommended. Appendicitis is a very common medical problem. Appendicitis may occur unexpectedly, or it may progress in time. Before the laparoscopic appendectomy surgery was developed, appendectomy surgery was being performed as open surgery. With the option of laparoscopic appendectomy procedure, numerous surgeons decided to perform laparoscopic appendectomy surgery because of its advantages like; short recovery period and fewer risks related to appendicitis treatment.

Preparation

Since many appendectomies are performed on an emergency basis by the surgeons, there is usually no time for the preparation. Yet, some people experience symptoms of appendicitis which develop in time; therefore, they have enough time for the preparations. It is recommended to stop taking any medication which might involve blood-thinning qualities such as aspirin. It is also advised to fast before the laparoscopic appendectomy procedure for a couple of hours. 

How It Is Performed

Laparoscopic appendectomy procedure is fairly an easy one. Since it is laparoscopic surgery, rather than making a single big cut surgeon make several small cuts to perform the operation. Laparoscopic surgery involves a laparoscope, which is a medical instrument with a light and a camera on it. There are also other different medical tools used to perform laparoscopic surgery. During the laparoscopic appendectomy operation, surgeons observe the location of appendectomy surgery on the screen and continue to cut out the appendix and close its connection to intestines.

Recovery

The laparoscopic appendectomy recovery period is shorter than an open appendectomy recovery period. People who had laparoscopic appendectomy surgery can go back to work 1-3 weeks after the operation. There might be a necessity of taking antibiotics or painkillers for the phase of recovery from the laparoscopic appendectomy.The total appendix surgery recovery time is estimated at 4-6 weeks.

Scars After Surgery

Appendix Scar 

People who had laparoscopic appendectomy usually have few small appendix scars. Though, these scars caused by laparoscopic appendectomy fade away in time.

Risks

Even though laparoscopic appendectomy is a very safe procedure, it still has several risks which include infections, open seams, internal bleeding, and harm to nearby organs.

Side Effects

It is possible for people to live without the appendix without any problem. Therefore, patients experience no side effects.

Success Rates

For the laparoscopic appendectomy cases without any complications success rate is assessed as 94%. Also, the success rate of laparoscopic appendectomy with appendicitis causing separation of the appendix was estimated as 90%.
