Flymedi- Abud Alielah

I found flymedi based on a recommendation by a friend of the family, I was given Abud contact with high recommendation of his service and I was not disappointed at all ! From day one Abud was very helpful and professional. Abud found for me the suitable medical center and the perfect surgeon! He was always available day and night and on weekends as well and very patient with my unlimited questions and inquiries :) and very clear with provided information. After agreeing on the price, place, doctor and dates of the surgery, Abud took care of and planned everything from the day of arrival until the departure, including the hotel, driver, dates of surgery, consultations and more. I am very satisfied, everything was great 👍🏻 I would definitely use his services again I definitely recommend ✅ ✅ ✅

Never expected such a great hospitality…

Never expected such a great hospitality from Flymedi as a foreigner. From the time I landed in Turkey to the time I come back in my country I was treated as a friend. Thank you Yasmin for guiding me all the way. As you promised, I was not placed on the wait list.

Made my trip overseas so much easier!

Yasmin was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! She told me how to get a travel visa and luckily warned me of any travel restrictions that were going on! I had to rebook my trip twice due to covid & restrictions and Yasmin handled everything on the hospitals end. One of the times I had to rebook it was because my layover was in london and Turkey banned all incoming travel from the UK. The airline never notified me so if it wasn't for Yasmin warning me I would have gotten on the plane and been stuck in london! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Yasmin made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

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.
