The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

I am really happy that I have planned my operation through Flymedi. Robin took great care of me and was always there for me and made everything possible. I had a breast lift and tummy tuck and had liposuction by Dr. Asli Datli. MedicalPark in Istanbul. she is a super doctor, the results has become very nice and was also there well cared for. Nurse Yeliz is adorable and has always been by my side. She was also always available and answered all my questions. I have felt very well, thanks again to all I am very satisfied.

Recommended For Microdiscectomy

Anyone suffering from herniated disc pain is a candidate for Microdiscectomy. On the other hand, pain in the lumbar spine or neck does not mean you have a herniated disc problem. Patients need to undergo a few tests such as MRI and doctor's examination to diagnose the problem. Then, other spinal diseases can be eliminated, and the patient can undergo Microdiscectomy.

Not Recommended For Microdiscectomy

If your doctor diagnosed you with a herniated disc, you might undergo a microdiscectomy. Only, if you have a herniated disc problem but do not have pain, non-surgical solutions are preferred.

Duration Of Operation

Overview

Herniated disc generally result in spinal stenosis (Pain due to compression of the spinal nerve) or pain in limbs which called sciatica. Since these symptoms-based pains can’t be tolerated easily, doctors recommend discectomy or more often Microdiscectomy for treatment of herniated disc. Microdiscectomy aims to remove hernia to cure herniated disc disease. Even if Microdiscectomy has a complicated procedure and aims to cure such a sensitive area as human’s spine, it is a well-studied and practiced procedure for several years. Therefore, more patients decided to undergo Microdiscectomy abroad to spend less money according to their country.

Preparation

It is recommended to stop smoking before surgery. Healthy eating and exercise may also be an option. Also, you should not eat for six hours before surgery.

How It Is Performed

Generally, full anesthesia is used while performing Microdiscectomy. To reach the spine, patients lie face down during the operation. Doctors make small incisions to reach the spine muscles in the same way as lumbar decompression treatment. The difference between traditional discectomy and Microdiscectomy is the size of incisions. Thanks to the microscope and other optical instruments, the incision size in Microdiscectomy is quite small. Once the spine muscles are reached, the doctor focuses on the hernia.Sometimes in order to do so, the specialist needs to conduct laminotomy (removal of a small part of one’s vertebrae). After reaching the herniated disk, its herniated part is cut to relieve pain and bring the regular functioning of spinal nerves back. At the last part of Microdiscectomy, muscles on the spine restored to their former place and incision is closed.

Recovery

Although most of the surgeries are needed a rest for a few days, microdiscectomy patients can leave the hospital within a few hours. Furthermore, after a microdiscectomy, patients should be active, and patients are encouraged to return to their day-to-day lives after surgery. However, that is not mean patients can behave as nothing happened. After the microdiscectomy, patients should continue their activities step by step for a healthy healing process.

Risks

Although Microdiscectomy is a safer kind of operation than other lower back surgeries, it has a few risks. Fluid leakage in the spinal cord, also known as a dural tear, is the most common. But after one or two day rest, this problem may be solved. Also, some rare risks may occur such as infection, internal or external bleeding, damage to the patient’s nerves, thrombosis on leg and problems with bowels or bladder but all of these risks are uncommon, and your doctor can heal these.

Side Effects

Microdiscectomy procedure generally has no side effects, but in some cases, herniated disc pain may not pass. In this situation, another surgery procedure needs to be done. However, the herniated disc problem may recur in the future, in which case re-operation is necessary.

Success Rates

Microdiscectomy success rate is thought to be rather high, around 85%, which is a really good sign remembering how fragile area is human’s spine.

Before And After

If there is sciatic pain due to a herniated disc, it is expected to heal after surgery. Complaints such as spinal stenosis and low back pain are expected to heal slowly.

Faq

I Have Herniated Disc. Should I havea Microdiscectomy? 
The most important aspect in estimating whether you need a microdiscectomy is herniated disc pain. If you don’t experience it, you probably won’t need a microdiscectomy. 

Why is Microdiscectomy thought to Be Better than Normal Discectomy? 
Microdiscectomy’s advantage is in the size of incision – the smaller incision, the sooner it heals, and the smaller is a possibility of occurrence of infection. For this reason, Microdiscectomy is more popular among patients and doctors. 

Microdiscectomy Recovery Time – Should I Spend It in Bed? 
No, definitely not. Microdiscectomy recovery time should be dedicated to a gradual resumption of your previous lifestyle, without putting too much stress on your spine.
