I travelled all the way from US by myself to come here and get rhinoplasty done, my surgery was a week ago by Dr Hasan duygulu he is extremely professional and excellent at his job. My whole stay was made very easy and comforting by Kate, Sultan and Enes. I have been coordinating with Kate this whole time from the start till the end. She has been amazing throughout and ensuring. They all were there for me when i needed them and even after. It was a great decision for me and i m totally proud of myself that i was able to find the best and proceeded with it. I thank everyone part of luna clinic and the hospital for your kind and loving hospitality. I will recommend coming to Dr Hasan to everyone and anyone without any hesitation

I would highly recommend Flymedi and Abud

I would highly recommend Flymedi. My mom had a gastric balloon fitted at the Luna clinic and everything went smoothly. When I was looking for a clinic in Turkey I found Flymedi as medical tourism, I contacted them by email and they got back to me in a short time. I was assigned Abud as health coordinator and I don’t have enough words to thank him. He’s professional but on top of that he loves what he’s doing and he does really care. As I said before I don’t have enough words to thank Abud and Flymedi and I’m so happy I made the right decision by choosing them. If you want to have the bed experience choose Flymedi and you won’t regret it.

Rhinoplasty 12 days ago- Luna Clinic- Dr. Hasan Duygulu

I had my rhinoplasty done exactly 12 days ago with doctor Hasan Duygulu. Before flying to Istanbul, I was very scared of doing this somewhere far from home but , from the first day of our arrival I knew I chose the right clinic; we met Sultan at the gate of the hospital, she was extremely nice and accommodating and organised, she comforted and still comforting me with answering every question and concerns possible and was with me through the whole before, during and after process which I am still experiencing btw. At the day of the surgery we met doctor Hasan, he is very nice and professional, I told him what I wanted and he took pictures of my face and showed me what my nose could approximately look like after the surgery and addressed my concerns and questions which were a lot btw :) he came to visit me right after I woke up and the next morning as well. The hospital was very luxurious and the nurses were very nice and all our needs were met perfectly, everything was super organised and easy. Today I removed my cast and I am very happy with the results as early as it is with the swelling I am very satisfied and I cant wait to see the final results which seem to be very close to the pictures he showed me. Thank you Luna clinic and especially Sultan for making this life changing decisions the best decision I made. The whole experience was easy, trusted and comfortable thanks to you

I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi.

If you are thinking about surgery in Turkey, I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi. Abud was my contact and is there for you 24/7. He was quick to respond and did his very best to answer every question and keep me calm in what can be, a new and scary experience. I would highly recommend and you can be sure you are lucky if he is your contact. The hospital was very clean and staff were very professional and kind. The doctor did an amazing job and I am thrilled!!

Totally recommend

The whole process went really smooth from the beginning, it was really easy to communicate with them. I had my mommy makeover done in June, 2021 and the only thing I regretted is putting off my surgery for some years because I did not want to travel abroad, but in the end it was all worth it. The prices are much lower and I was happy with my surgeon (Prof. Omer), he is such a friendly person and an amazing surgeon as well. I love my results and I've never felt so confident in my body, even before the pregnancy. I can recommend Flymedi and my surgeon in particular.

Not Recommended For Glial Tumor Removal

If you were diagnosed with any type of glioma, you could have a brain tumor surgery. Although you should complete several tests in order the understand such treatment’s possible advantages and disadvantages.

Number Of Trips Abroad

One or more, depending on brain cancer stage and its remission

Preparation

Generally, glioma treatment involves the procedures of brain cancer operations, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy; therefore, there are some preparations you should consider. Before the brain tumor operation, you should inform our doctor about the medical conditions you have and the medications you have been taking. One week before brain surgery, you should stop taking any kind of blood-thinning medications such as aspirin. For the treatments of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, there is no need for a specific preparation to make.However, it is better to consult your specialist before glial tumor treatment begins.

How It Is Performed

Glial tumor treatment includes several treatment procedures, which are brain tumor surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Yet, there might be some conditions in which one of the procedures is not performed. There may be two different objectives for glioma treatment:

• At the early stages of glioma, glial tumor treatment’s main goal is to eliminate it totally.
• At the late stages of glioma generally, it is not possible to deem total extinction of tumor cells. Therefore, treatment mainly focuses on managing it on a low level. Glioma treatment starts usually with an attempt at glial tumor removal through brain surgery, followed by radiation therapy and chemotherapy treatment. In the cases which brain surgery and radiotherapy treatment’s effects are positive and enduring, there is no need for chemotherapy to be performed.

Recovery

The recovery period of glioma treatment may last for weeks, months, or even years. To be able to suppress glioma tumor cells, some medications are taken by the patient during the time between brain surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. There is a necessity for some of the medications to be used even after all of the three (or two) stages are administrated. Meanwhile, glioma treatment’s side effects would disappear. This period may last for a few months, which is around 3-6 months, but in the case of stage 3 glioma or stage 4 glioma, proper recovery may not happen.

Risks

Glioma treatment has several risks and complications; some of them are:

• Seizures 
• Internal or external bleeding 
• Neurological problems 
• Sometimes chemotherapy and radiotherapy may lead to infertility 

Yet, mentioned risks do not shade the potential benefits of intensive glioma treatment

Side Effects

Glioma treatment side effects are in interaction with another kind of treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy with addition to medications given to the patient so as to suppress glioma. Some of the side effects are double vision, problems with balance, problems with concentration, etc. The patient should reach a specialist if any of the side effects gets serious.

Success Rates

Most of the time, glioma causes a patient's death. In the early stages of glioma, there is a chance for removal of total glial tumors, but the possibility is very low. The success rate of glioma treatment depends on the patient’s life quality and its length.

Before And After

Treatment of glioma might be a tiring process for the patients, but it provides them a long time to spend with their family and more peaceful passing away. Patients who are suffering from early stages of glioma might benefit from the treatment with results like total eradication of cancer for years to come.

Faq

-Why Should One Decide for Glioma Treatment?
