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 Orbital Tumor Removal

Any form of eye tumor or eye cancer identified patients are candidates for the eye tumor removal since, as indicated previously, even harmless eye tumors may impact the sight. Nevertheless, the form of operation, from small treatments to major invasive surgeries, depends on the location and kinds of the tumor.

The most apparent symptom of eye tumor is from exophthalmos – bulging eye. While one-eyed exophthalmos is usually a sign of the orbital tumor, two-eyed exophthalmos may imply some other medical problems.

Not Recommended For Orbital Tumor Removal

There are no major contraindications for orbital tumor removal. Particular patients may not be suitable for some eye surgery methods. However, it is not indicated that they will be unsuitable for all eye tumor removal methods.

Overview

Orbital tumors are tumors of the eye socket, including eye and the nerves that connect it with the brain. Although usually eye tumors accepted as harmless (they do not spread to other organs and lead to life-threatening conditions)occasionally they may become harmful tumors (or eye cancer) and danger the life of person directly. Besides, considering eye socket as being fairly small together with organs and tissues, harmless eye tumors may also cause medical problems that impact the sight of a person or even result in temporary or permanent blindness. Consequently, the whole cases of eye tumor should seek treatment, generally an orbital tumor removal.

Preparation

For doctors to prepare you appropriately, they should be informed about your medical histories, such as your conditions and medications. Besides, you should fast for the day of your surgery.

How It Is Performed

Orbital tumor removal may be seen in various forms. It depends on the kind, place, and general characteristics (harmless eye tumor or eye cancer.) In regards to small harmless eye tumors, removal of the tumor with surrounding tissue may be enough to leave the eye mostly untouched. On the other hand, if an eye tumor becomes eye cancer, the extent of orbital tumor removal will be increased by it and covers the entire eye.To radical forms of radical eye tumor removal belong: 


• Evisceration – removal of the contents of the eyeball without resecting the eyeball itself


• Enucleation – removing an eyeball to fight the eye cancer
• Exenteration – removing not just the eyeball but also the orbital socket to fight with eye cancer which has already spread outside of one’s eyeball

Recovery

The recovery period of orbital tumor removal changes depending on the kind of the surgery and potential difficulties it may bring. While some patients can leave after short monitoring, others may need an around 7-day stay. Some also may need a rehabilitation process.

While carrying heavyweights after the eye surgery is discouraged, attending the appointments at the doctor’s office regularly is advised.

Getting an artificial eye and/or a plastic surgery may be the final step of recovery from orbital tumor removal. This will interest especially patients of evisceration, enucleation, and exenteration.

Risks

The potential risks that may come from orbital tumor removal surgeries include;
• Infection 
• Accidental spreading of tumor cells to other parts of one’s eye 
• Bleeding 
• Problems with sight

Side Effects

The major effect will be eye removal and consequently, learning to live with just one eye if more radical orbital tumor removal surgeries are performed. Using artificial eyeball for aesthetic motives are considered for several patients after evisceration, enucleation, or exenteration procedures.

Faq

What Is an Orbital Tumor?  The orbital tumor is a tumor which grows within one's orbital socket. While usually orbital tumors are benign eye tumors, sometimes they may take the form of eye cancer. 

Is Orbital Tumor Removal Possible Without Eye Removal?  Yes, small orbital tumors may be removed without seriously affecting the eye. However, bigger tumors and eye cancers may require evisceration, enucleation, or exenteration eye surgeries, which are connected with eye removal. 

What Are Eye Tumor Symptoms Easy to Spot? 
The most apparent symptom of eye tumor belongs to exophthalmos or eye bulging. If exophthalmos seen in only one eye, there is a possibility that it is a sign of an orbital tumor.
