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.

Recommended For Incarcerated or Strangulated Inguinal Hernia Repair

Candidates for incarcerated hernia surgery are patients whose inguinal hernias can not be massaged back into the abdomen by the doctors. An incarcerated hernia operation should be performed immediately to prevent incarcerated hernia from becoming a strangulated hernia. If not, strangulated hernia would be threatening the patient’s life.


Incarcerated or Strangulated Inguinal Hernia is a very serious condition. Patients who are suffering from the symptoms of an incarcerated or a strangulated hernia should seek medical help as soon as possible. An incarcerated hernia is the case when one's intestines apply pressure to groin muscles, and the herniated tissue gets stuck. In this situation, it becomes difficult to move it back into the abdomen. There are several complications incarcerated hernia can cause with the most life-threatening one being the strangulated inguinal hernia. A strangulated inguinal hernia occurs when a part of the bowel that creates the bulge is deprived of blood supply.  Doctors perform incarcerated hernia surgery in order to prevent it from becoming a strangulated hernia.

How It Is Performed

Depending on the situation, open hernia surgery or laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair can be performed for the incarcerated or strangulated inguinal hernia patients. For the inguinal hernia repair process, surgeons aim to push the intestines back into the abdomen and sew the muscles so as to avoid a future relapse of an inguinal hernia.
