I travelled all the way from US by myself to come here and get rhinoplasty done, my surgery was a week ago by Dr Hasan duygulu he is extremely professional and excellent at his job. My whole stay was made very easy and comforting by Kate, Sultan and Enes. I have been coordinating with Kate this whole time from the start till the end. She has been amazing throughout and ensuring. They all were there for me when i needed them and even after. It was a great decision for me and i m totally proud of myself that i was able to find the best and proceeded with it. I thank everyone part of luna clinic and the hospital for your kind and loving hospitality. I will recommend coming to Dr Hasan to everyone and anyone without any hesitation

I would highly recommend Flymedi and Abud

I would highly recommend Flymedi. My mom had a gastric balloon fitted at the Luna clinic and everything went smoothly. When I was looking for a clinic in Turkey I found Flymedi as medical tourism, I contacted them by email and they got back to me in a short time. I was assigned Abud as health coordinator and I don’t have enough words to thank him. He’s professional but on top of that he loves what he’s doing and he does really care. As I said before I don’t have enough words to thank Abud and Flymedi and I’m so happy I made the right decision by choosing them. If you want to have the bed experience choose Flymedi and you won’t regret it.

Rhinoplasty 12 days ago- Luna Clinic- Dr. Hasan Duygulu

I had my rhinoplasty done exactly 12 days ago with doctor Hasan Duygulu. Before flying to Istanbul, I was very scared of doing this somewhere far from home but , from the first day of our arrival I knew I chose the right clinic; we met Sultan at the gate of the hospital, she was extremely nice and accommodating and organised, she comforted and still comforting me with answering every question and concerns possible and was with me through the whole before, during and after process which I am still experiencing btw. At the day of the surgery we met doctor Hasan, he is very nice and professional, I told him what I wanted and he took pictures of my face and showed me what my nose could approximately look like after the surgery and addressed my concerns and questions which were a lot btw :) he came to visit me right after I woke up and the next morning as well. The hospital was very luxurious and the nurses were very nice and all our needs were met perfectly, everything was super organised and easy. Today I removed my cast and I am very happy with the results as early as it is with the swelling I am very satisfied and I cant wait to see the final results which seem to be very close to the pictures he showed me. Thank you Luna clinic and especially Sultan for making this life changing decisions the best decision I made. The whole experience was easy, trusted and comfortable thanks to you

I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi.

If you are thinking about surgery in Turkey, I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi. Abud was my contact and is there for you 24/7. He was quick to respond and did his very best to answer every question and keep me calm in what can be, a new and scary experience. I would highly recommend and you can be sure you are lucky if he is your contact. The hospital was very clean and staff were very professional and kind. The doctor did an amazing job and I am thrilled!!

Totally recommend

The whole process went really smooth from the beginning, it was really easy to communicate with them. I had my mommy makeover done in June, 2021 and the only thing I regretted is putting off my surgery for some years because I did not want to travel abroad, but in the end it was all worth it. The prices are much lower and I was happy with my surgeon (Prof. Omer), he is such a friendly person and an amazing surgeon as well. I love my results and I've never felt so confident in my body, even before the pregnancy. I can recommend Flymedi and my surgeon in particular.

Recommended For Nephrectomy

Candidates of nephrectomy include patients who have kidney cancer (mostly early stages) and those who are willing to donate their kidney.

Not Recommended For Nephrectomy

Patients who are suffering from kidney cancer and who are at the late stages may not benefit from the nephrectomy. Rather they might be suitable for the treatments of radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

Overview

Nephrectomy is a medical procedure of removing the kidney either completely or partially.  Even though nephrectomy is often performed for patients who are suffering from kidney cancer, it can be performed for kidney donation as well. Over the years, nephrectomy procedure has changed.Classical, abdominal nephrectomy can be performed for the patients as well as laparoscopic nephrectomy.

Preparation

Patients who will have a nephrectomy operation should inform their surgeons about the illnesses they have and medications they have been using so that surgeons can be prepared properly for the operation and may tell you to stop using some of the medicines you have been taking.

How It Is Performed

Nephrectomy can be performed in different ways according to the patient's medical condition, and the reason surgery is being conducted. Nephrectomy surgery can be performed in two different techniques:


• Laparoscopic nephrectomy -in most of the medical conditions, laparoscopic nephrectomy is thought to be the best one. With the use of laparoscopy, surgeons make several small cuts in the abdomen rather than a single big one. This way, the recovery period from the surgery shortens, and the patient experiences less pain.

• Abdominal nephrectomy – in this method, surgeons make a big incision in the abdomen; it is the classical way of removing the kidney.

In addition, kidney removal can be performed in two different ways in terms of scopes:

• Total nephrectomy (or radical nephrectomy) –This is a procedure of total kidney removal. Surrounding tissue might be removed as well in the cases of kidney cancer.
• Partial nephrectomy – in this procedure, only the part of the kidney is removed.

Recovery

Depending on the type of nephrectomy being performed, recovery time differs (laparoscopic or abdominal nephrectomy procedure).Nephrectomy post-op care includes a temporary presence of a caterer and fighting with pain with the use of painkillers.

Risks

Even though nephrectomy is believed to be a safe procedure. Still, there might be some complications involved. Complications may involve infection, damage to kidneys, which may also cause kidney failure and excessive bleeding. However, these complications do not occur often.

Side Effects

After the nephrectomy, either performed as a treatment of kidney cancer or as a kidney donation, patients can live a normal life.There are no innate side effects of nephrectomy procedure.

Success Rates

The success rate of nephrectomy surgery is highly dependent on the scope of the surgery. When performed for kidney donation, nephrectomy has a very high success rate.In a similar situation are patients with early stages of kidney cancer, whose large majority (70-80%) lives more than 5 years after kidney removal surgery.
