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.

1 trip

Overnight stay is not required

Duration Of Operation

30 to 60 minutes

Minimum Stay

2 to 3 days

Preparation

Since knee arthroscopy is not a severely invasive method, there is no need for advanced preparation. However, you should tell your doctor about your medical conditions and the medications you have been using. Also, a couple of days before the knee arthroscopy operation, you should stop taking medications with blood-thinning qualities such as aspirin. In addition, before the operation, you need to fast for a couple of hours.

How It Is Performed

Knee arthroscopy is a relatively easy orthopedic practice. While performing knee arthroscopy, surgeons make small cuts, and a certain amount of saline water is pumped inside so as to get a better sight of the patient’s joints.Then, the arthroscope is put into the incision, and orthopedist starts to look for sources of patient's knee problems. Then, if the problem encountered is treatable on the spot, orthopedist operates it.

Recovery

The recovery period of knee arthroscopy does not last for too long. Once the operation is completed, you can leave the hospital, but you should not be driving. For a couple of days after the operation, you should not move very often, so it is better to have somebody taking care of you. After that, the knee rehabilitation period begins. However, the recovery period is depended on the type of knee problem that was dealt with during surgery.

Risks

Arthroscopic knee surgery has several risks and complications.These are of dual nature. In any kind of invasive surgery, there are complications and risks involved, such as excessive bleeding and infections. Also, knee arthroscopy has some specific complications and risks which are nerve and muscle damage, accumulation of blood in the patient’s knee or formation of a blood clot. However, these complications do not frequently occur during the operation.

Side Effects

After the operation, most of the patients experience excessive pain and swelling in the operated area. However, pain can be eased with the help of the painkillers and the application of ice.

Success Rates

If the operation is performed in order to identify the problem in the knee- as a diagnostic procedure, most of the time it is completed successfully. If the operation is performed to deal with the knee injuries, there are several success rates involved -since there is a variety of different knee problems such as the torn meniscus, problems with knee ligaments and the other conditions which necessitate arthroscopic knee surgery.

Before And After

After the surgery, the patient should not neglect the importance of proper rehabilitation since it fastens the recovery period and increases the patient’s life quality.

Faq

What is Knee Arthroscopy
Knee arthroscopy surgery is performed with the use of arthroscopy and tiny tools in order to identify and struggle with the problems of the patient’s knee.

What is the Difference between Knee Arthroscopy and other Knee Surgeries? 
The main difference is the size of surgical intervention – in the case of knee arthroscopy, incisions are minimal thanks to using the arthroscope, while in classical knee surgeries incisions are much bigger and therefore – harder to heal after. 

Will I Have to Stay in Hospital after Knee Arthroscopy? 
Knee arthroscopy is an outpatient procedure. Therefore, you can leave the hospital when the operation is completed, and the anesthesia wears off. However, someone should assist you in the home.
