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

Prostatectomy surgery is a removal operation of prostate utilized for the most part as a prostate cancer treatment or a treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia. Prostatectomy methodology is a very regular one, with a huge number of men experiencing it consistently all around the globe. There are a couple of prostatectomy types, shifting with respect to the degree and the strategy of prostatectomy medical procedure.

 

Prostatectomy Types

 

Prostatectomy types are parted by their degree and procedure utilized by the medical team. Concerning the extent of prostatectomy medical procedure, we can part it into: 

 

• Partial prostatectomy medical procedure – in this prostatectomy system just a piece of patient's prostate is evacuated 

 

• Radical prostatectomy – in radical prostatectomy methodology, not exclusively patient's prostate yet additionally encompassing tissues are expelled. 

 

With respect to the method of prostatectomy medical procedure, we can make reference to prostatectomy types, for example, 

 

• Laparoscopic prostatectomy – one of the most current prostatectomy types. In laparoscopic prostatectomy methodology, specialists utilize a laparoscope, a restorative gadget with a camera which sees the activity site. On account of the laparoscope, laparoscopic prostatectomy requires just a couple of little entry points rather than a major one.

 

• Robotic prostatectomy – in mechanical prostatectomy specialists use robots to see the task site and work. 

 

• Open prostatectomy medical procedure – this is the traditional prostatectomy system, with one major slice performed so as to evacuate the prostate.

Preparation

While arrangements for various prostatectomy types may fluctuate, there are some key basic focuses in them worth referencing. Patients going to experience a prostatectomy medical procedure are solicited to give a rundown from other disease and prescriptions taken for them all together for prostatectomy methodology to be appropriately arranged. Also, fasting for a few hours before the prostatectomy is normally mentioned. At long last, some prostatectomy medical procedure patients are relied upon to experience syringe.

How It Is Performed

Contingent upon prostatectomy types, the prostatectomy technique may take various structures; however, on a basic level, it is consistently the equivalent. Regardless of whether automated prostatectomy, laparoscopic prostatectomy or open prostatectomy medical procedure, professionals give effort to expel part of the entire of one's prostate, now and then together with including tissues. Some prostatectomy types take more time to perform than others; however, they ensure shorter prostatectomy improvement time (it is particularly valid for automated prostatectomy and laparoscopic prostatectomy). 

Recovery

The recovery period of prostatectomy shifts between prostatectomy types. Both degree (halfway or radical prostatectomy) as the strategy for prostatectomy system (automated prostatectomy, laparoscopic prostatectomy, open prostatectomy) many influences the prostatectomy recovery. The most limited prostatectomy improvement time is evaluated to be after robotic prostatectomy and laparoscopic prostatectomy. Likewise, prostatectomy recovery will last shorter after partial prostatectomy method instead of radical prostatectomy.

Risks

While prostatectomy operation is generally covered, possible prostatectomy complications are worth taking under consideration. Prostatectomy entanglements may include excessive bleeding, infection, damage to nearby organs, as well as negative effects of anesthesia.

Side Effects

Aside from prostatectomy problems which are generally uncommon, there are likewise prostatectomy symptoms which may influence patients' life after a prostatectomy. These incorporate, among others: 

 

• Erectile dysfunctions 

 

• Urinary incontinence

Success Rates

Achievement rates of prostatectomy medical procedure rely upon prostatectomy types just as on the kind of disease being the explanation behind prostatectomy technique (prostate cancer growth or benign prostatic hyperplasia). In any case, as a rule, over 80% of prostate disease patients endure over 10 years after the technique, and 60% live 15 years and more.
