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.

Great experience using Flymedi to find the perfect surgeon and operation for me. Abud answered all my questions and helped so much!

Recommended For CyberKnife Treatment

Cyberknife treatment is recommended for patients suffering from cancerous or non-cancerous tumors in several areas of the body, including:


● Kidney

● Pancreas

● Liver

● Spine

● Brain

● Lung

● Prostate


Cyberknife treatment can be used alone or in conjunction with chemotherapy, depending on the tumor size and location. The procedure is especially recommended for patients suffering from inoperable tumors or brain tumors.

Not Recommended For CyberKnife Treatment

Cyberknife treatment is not recommended for patients suffering from one or more of the following:


● Spinal instability

● Neurological deficit caused by pressure from bone structures

● Previous high dose radiotherapy

● Metastatic cancer

Duration Of Operation

40 to 90 minutes

Overview

CyberKnife is a robotic radiosurgery system currently being used to treat malignant tumors, benign tumors, and several other medical conditions. The system was developed in the early 90’s and since then it has been continuously improved.


The Cyberknife system allows delivering radiotherapy to certain areas of the body with greater accuracy as compared to standard radiotherapy. The Cyberknife system is composed of two main elements which set it apart from traditional radiotherapy systems:


● A linear particle accelerator – this component produces a very precise beam of radiation

● A robotic arm – the robotic arm allows cyberknife radiation to be directed at any part of the patient’s body and from any direction


These components allow oncologists to treat areas that were previously unapproachable. Cyberknife treatment is especially suitable for patients who cannot benefit from traditional radiation therapy, cancer surgery or chemotherapy.


A typical cyberknife treatment consists of one to five radiation sessions. Each cyberknife treatment delivers around 150 beams of radiation to the cancerous area. The Cyberknife system tracks the tumor inside the patient’s body during the time which the beams are delivered, ensuring great precision and little or no damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Cyberknife treatment has little or no side effects and the procedure doesn’t require any incisions or anesthesia – it’s simple, very effective and no recovery time is needed.

Preparation

Patients must go through several tests in order to determine the location, shape, and size of the tumor. CT scans, MRIs or angiographies may be performed. All data gathered during these tests is fed into the Cyberknife system and an oncologist will prepare the patient’s treatment plan. The treatment plan includes the targeted areas and the radiation dose necessary to treat the tumor.

How It Is Performed

The patient will be asked to sit comfortably on a treatment table. The procedure is painless, so anesthesia is not necessary during treatment. Patients are required to sit in a plastic mold that will maintain their position between 40 and 90 minutes – during this time the Cyberknife system will send beams of radiation into the patient’s tumor. Real-time images are taken during the procedure, in order to ensure that the tumor has not moved or in order to make adjustments. Most patients require between one and five visits for cyberknife treatment.

Recovery

Patients may return home immediately after the cyberknife treatment. There is no recovery time for this procedure and most patients return to their normal activities in the same day.

Risks

Cyberknife treatment risks and complications depend on the treated area. Most patients can expect fatigue and some weight loss after cyberknife treatment.

Side Effects

Cyberknife side effects are very rare but they can occur. These side effects can occur after the treatment is complete or during the treatment session. It’s important to note that side effects depend heavily on the treated area.


General Cyberknife treatment side effects can include:


● Headaches

● Nausea

Success Rates

A study based on 160 patients suffering from advanced high-risk tumors revealed a 73.13% average success rate for cyberknife treatment: for 18 patients the tumors disappeared, for 99 the tumors shrunk considerably, 35 were unchanged and 8 were enlarged.

Before And After

Once the cyberknife treatment is over, patients will be able to resume their normal activities but follow-up tests will be necessary for a couple of months. These tests are done in order to monitor the tumor’s response to treatment.

Faq

– How is cyberknife treatment different from traditional radiation therapy?

Traditional radiation therapy can affect surrounding healthy tissue and it can also lead to complications such as cancer.


– Cyberknife vs Gamma Knife – What is the difference?

Gamma knife is used specifically to treat tumors of the neck, head, and brain, while Cyberknife treatment can be used for other parts of the body as well.


– Is Cyberknife treatment painful?

It’s not painful at all and you may resume your activities immediately.
