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.

Overview

Radical Nephrectomy is a surgical operation in which a kidney is removed completely. This operation is mostly performed for patients who are suffering from kidney cancer. Radical Nephrectomy is the alternative for specifical patients whose cancer is not located only in a part of the kidney and those who have later stages of renal cell carcinoma. Radical Nephrectomy used to be the only operation of kidney removal as a treatment for kidney cancer. However, over the years, partial Nephrectomy became a popular alternative for early stages of renal cell carcinoma. 

Radical Nephrectomy can involve the removal of the surrounding tissues as well.

How It Is Performed

There are several ways of performing radical Nephrectomy:

• Robotic Surgery – in this method, surgeons do not operate manually; rather, they use a specialized robot for the Surgery. This results in a more aseptic setting and a shorter recovery period.

• Laparoscopic Nephrectomy –In laparoscopic Nephrectomy, a medical instrument called laparoscope is used in order to make several small incisions. A laparoscope is a tool which involves a camera and light. With the use of a laparoscope, laparoscopic Nephrectomy has a shorter recovery time as well.

• Open Nephrectomy – this method is a standard way of removing the kidney. Surgeons make a big incision to perform the surgery.

During the radical nephrectomy surgery, either only the kidney can be removed or the patient's kidney can be removed with surrounding tissues. The scope of radical nephrectomy procedure depends mostly on the stage of kidney cancer.

Recovery

Recovery time after the radical Nephrectomy can last around 6 weeks for an open nephrectomy while it takes about 2-3 weeks for a laparoscopic nephrectomy and robotic Nephrectomy. After the radical Nephrectomy, it is recommended to stay active while avoiding heavy physical activities (walking seems perfect). Additionally, they shall drink a lot of water and not forget about their appointments at the doctor's office.
