Abud exceeded all my expectations

Abud exceeded all my expectations for Flymedi. He was readily available to answer my questions and put my mind at ease. I was never made to feel like I asked too many questions or rushed at all, he spoke to me as if he were a long time friend. He was also very clear about everything I am going to expect on my trip, from accommodations to the procedure, down to the weather and beautiful things to see in Turkey. Abud makes things so simple and takes the stress away from traveling. I could not and most likely would not have done this without Abud and his help!

First time plastic surgery experience with FlyMedi

I contacted Flymedi about getting a breast augmentation done and I was contacted by Abud shortly thereafter who was helped me through the initial planning phase so well. Since I am coming all the way from Africa and have never traveled alone, Abud organized a video call with the surgeon to go over some of the questions I had as well as my expectations of the surgery. I am very pleased with the service so far and already feel safe about traveling to Istanbul for my surgery

Fantastic!! Definitely recommend booking via flymedi, prices are affordable which isn’t the case where I live. So far everything’s running smoothly and any questions I’ve had have been answered honestly and promptly. very caring and professional towards your needs and no judgments

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

The following conditions can be identified and dealt with by performing a knee arthroscopy:

• Cysts in one’s knee 
• Fractures appearing in the knee bones 
• Torn cartilage pieces 
And many others.

Overview

Knee arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that aims to handle the medical issues in the knee. Knee arthroscopy is an orthopedic procedure. Orthopedists make small incisions rather than big ones, during the procedure. While performing the knee arthroscopy, surgeons use a medical tool called arthroscopy, which involves a tiny camera to see the incision site. Due to the use of arthroscopy, the operation has a very short recovery period, and the risk for the side effects are less.

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.

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.
