5 Star Customer Support from Abud Alielah

I found the website on Google Search. They got back to me pretty quickly. Abud went above and beyond to help me find the right doctor and get my documents sorted. Very friendly and super helpful.

Flymedi- Abud Alielah

I found flymedi based on a recommendation by a friend of the family, I was given Abud contact with high recommendation of his service and I was not disappointed at all ! From day one Abud was very helpful and professional. Abud found for me the suitable medical center and the perfect surgeon! He was always available day and night and on weekends as well and very patient with my unlimited questions and inquiries :) and very clear with provided information. After agreeing on the price, place, doctor and dates of the surgery, Abud took care of and planned everything from the day of arrival until the departure, including the hotel, driver, dates of surgery, consultations and more. I am very satisfied, everything was great 👍🏻 I would definitely use his services again I definitely recommend ✅ ✅ ✅

Never expected such a great hospitality from Flymedi as a foreigner. From the time I landed in Turkey to the time I come back in my country I was treated as a friend. Thank you Yasmin for guiding me all the way. As you promised, I was not placed on the wait list.

Made my trip overseas so much easier!

Yasmin was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! She told me how to get a travel visa and luckily warned me of any travel restrictions that were going on! I had to rebook my trip twice due to covid & restrictions and Yasmin handled everything on the hospitals end. One of the times I had to rebook it was because my layover was in london and Turkey banned all incoming travel from the UK. The airline never notified me so if it wasn't for Yasmin warning me I would have gotten on the plane and been stuck in london! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Yasmin made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

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.
