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.

Recommended For Knee Arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy is performed to identify the problem in the knee and if it is possible to deal with knee injuries. If it is not possible for the doctors to identify the problem without the operation for the patients who are suffering from knee pain and abnormal changes in their knees, these patients can be suitable for knee arthroscopy. The following conditions can be identified and dealt with by performing a knee arthroscopy:
• torn meniscus 
• 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.

Faq

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.
