My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Overview

Radical Nephrectomy is a surgical operation in which a kidney is removed completely. This operation is mostly performed for patients who are suffering from kidney cancer. Radical Nephrectomy is the alternative for specifical patients whose cancer is not located only in a part of the kidney and those who have later stages of renal cell carcinoma. Radical Nephrectomy used to be the only operation of kidney removal as a treatment for kidney cancer. However, over the years, partial Nephrectomy became a popular alternative for early stages of renal cell carcinoma. 

Radical Nephrectomy can involve the removal of the surrounding tissues as well.

How It Is Performed

There are several ways of performing radical Nephrectomy:

• Robotic Surgery – in this method, surgeons do not operate manually; rather, they use a specialized robot for the Surgery. This results in a more aseptic setting and a shorter recovery period.

• Laparoscopic Nephrectomy –In laparoscopic Nephrectomy, a medical instrument called laparoscope is used in order to make several small incisions. A laparoscope is a tool which involves a camera and light. With the use of a laparoscope, laparoscopic Nephrectomy has a shorter recovery time as well.

• Open Nephrectomy – this method is a standard way of removing the kidney. Surgeons make a big incision to perform the surgery.

During the radical nephrectomy surgery, either only the kidney can be removed or the patient's kidney can be removed with surrounding tissues. The scope of radical nephrectomy procedure depends mostly on the stage of kidney cancer.

Recovery

Recovery time after the radical Nephrectomy can last around 6 weeks for an open nephrectomy while it takes about 2-3 weeks for a laparoscopic nephrectomy and robotic Nephrectomy. After the radical Nephrectomy, it is recommended to stay active while avoiding heavy physical activities (walking seems perfect). Additionally, they shall drink a lot of water and not forget about their appointments at the doctor's office.
