(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

5* service

From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

Great Service

After a long research for hair transplant, I came across Flymedi. I had several reasons to get this service from them such as getting rid of the bureaucratic process, handling accommodation issues, personal assistant, etc. I felt comfortable once it is done by Flymedi as full of customer-oriented style, I was just worried about the surgery which went well too! Thank you Flymedi team. Make sure that I will be letting people know your passion for helping patients who admit to have surgery done in Poland.

Overview

Partial Nephrectomy is a surgical operation of removing the kidney partially. For the patients who are suffering from the early stages of kidney cancer, partial Nephrectomy is a relatively new and promising option. If renal cell carcinoma didn't spread throughout the kidney or outside of it, partial kidney removal might be a solution. Over the years partial Nephrectomy became a popular alternative. Yet, not all of the surgeons who are working with kidney cancer patients are able to perform partial Nephrectomy. This procedure necessitates specific skills and experience. Therefore, patients who are planning to have a partial nephrectomy surgery should research cautiously before deciding on their doctor and hospital.

How It Is Performed

Partial nephrectomy surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Partial Nephrectomy can be performed in different kind of techniques: 

• Robotic Nephrectomy – Latest method of partial Nephrectomy is robotic Nephrectomy. In this method, specialized robots are used to perform the operation. Surgeons do not operate manually in this kind of a procedure. Robotic Nephrectomy is believed to be the most sterile option, and it has excellent accuracy. This is very important for a partial kidney removal surgery in order to not damage the surrounding tissue and the left of the kidney. 

• Laparoscopic Nephrectomy – in this method, surgeons make several small cuts rather than a single big one in order to perform the operation. Through these cuts, a medical tool which involves light and camera, a laparoscope, is inserted. Laparoscopic surgery has a shorter recovery period and less risk for infection in comparison to open Nephrectomy.

• Open Nephrectomy – open Nephrectomy is a typical method for performing partial Nephrectomy. Surgeons make a big incision to perform the operation. 

In all of these procedures of partial Nephrectomy, patient's kidney is removed partially sometimes involving the tissue around it.

Recovery

Recovery time of open Nephrectomy is thought to be around 2 weeks while for laparoscopic Nephrectomy and robotic Nephrectomy it is 2 to 3 weeks. After the partial Nephrectomy, it is important to have a fluid-rich diet and to be physically active such as walking as well as visiting the doctor for your appointments.
