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.

● Severe vascular disease

● Atypical Parkinsonism

Minimum Stay
4 days
Preparation
Patients must be well aware of the risks and benefits associated with deep brain stimulation surgery. The patient is required to pass several medical tests in order to ensure eligibility for the procedure. Once that’s done, an MRI is required in order to decide on the location where the electrodes are implanted.
How It Is Performed

Deep brain stimulation surgery consists of two parts:


Brain surgery – A head frame is created especially for the patient, in order to ensure that the patient’s head does not move during the procedure. Local anaesthesia is administered to the patient before an incision is made into the scalp. The surgeon will then implant a wire with four electrodes into the area of the brain which requires treatment. The wire will then lead to a neurostimulator. The neurostimulator acts as a generator for electric impulses to be sent into the brain.


Upper chest surgery – A few days after the brain surgery part of the DBS procedure is complete, the patient is put under general anaesthesia. The doctor will then implant the neurostimulator into the patient’s upper chest, often close to the collarbone. The stimulator is connected to the electrodes in the patent’s brain with wires underneath the skin. The generator or neurostimulator can be turned on or off by the patient at any given time.

Recovery
Patients are required to avoid flying for at least 4 days after the DBS surgery. The incisions need to be kept dry for at least a week after the deep brain stimulation surgery. Most patients are able to return to normal activities in around 2-3 weeks.
Risks

Risks and complications associated with deep brain stimulation surgery can include:


● Infection

● Bleeding within the brain

● Calcification of the implant

● Rejection of the neurostimulator

Side Effects

Deep brain stimulation side effects can include:


● Depression

● Cognitive dysfunction

● Hypersexuality

● Apathy

● Hallucinations

● Pain

● Brain swelling

● Sleepiness

Success Rates
Deep brain stimulation surgery success rates depend heavily on the patient’s condition. For Parkinson’s disease, the success rate can be in the high 90s.
Before And After
Patients will be required to visit their surgeon and neurologist, 4 weeks after the deep brain stimulation surgery. It’s important to note that deep brain stimulation surgery cannot fully treat diseases, but only alleviate symptoms. Results may differ from patient to patient.
Faq

– Is the neurostimulator permanent?

No, it will need to be removed and replaced in 3-4 years.


– When can I resume exercise?

You may resume exercise in around 3 weeks from the DBS.


– Can I have an MRI after DBS?

No, patients need to avoid MRI exams after the procedure. Special types of MRI exams can be performed, so it’s best to inform your doctor about the implant.
