Diagnosis: Ameloblastoma

Almost an year ago I got an incredible help from Dr. Natalia. The determining the diagnosis and looking for right treatment was scary experience for me but Dr. Natalia not only confidently organised the process but also supported me morally. I am so thankful to her for finding me a perfect surgeon Prof. Hakan Agir and scheduling the whole process. She always was ready to give me detailed response on all my questions. After surgery in June 2022 I went to Istanbul two more times for examinations in October 2022 and March 2023 and these both times Dr. Natalia was there to help me with communication with doctors and organising my visit to Turkey.
Thank you Natalia!

Diagnosis: prostate cancer

Dr. Konstantin and Experts Medical have been a great help in the way to treat my father’s prostate cancer. They found me the best treatment option for my father which is doing SBRT (a type of advanced radiotherapy) using an MR-LINAC machine. I knew this new device is the best, but had difficulty finding the right hospital that had it, until Dr. Konstantin found the Acibadem Hospital in Istanbul and linked me with its staff. I highly appreciate his help as it was crucial for me to find the best device to treat my father. He has also shown great care regarding my father’s health and continuously followed up about his health status after the treatment. I wish him luck and strongly recommend his service to other patients.

Hi! And good mood to everybody!
First of all, I’d like to express my deep gratitude to Experts Medical for their high attention and sincerity to patients. During my treatment my coordinator Natalia was in touch with me 24hours a day, to whom I am very grateful. She is a sensitive, attentive, and sympathetic person. Sometimes it seemed that she was more worried about me than I was about myself. This is an Angel who wants to help all suffering and depressed people.
Thank you very much for your warmth and care and all of your Experts Medical company for your work. You are great fellows! Health to all your team!

Diagnosis: cardio diagnostics + general check-up

One of the best coordinators, my mom got sick and made terrible diagnoses. Dr. Konstantin organized everything clearly quickly and comfortably in a few days . For us, everything was organized to the smallest detail, starting with the daily transfer and ending with the delivery of medicines to the hotel, since we ourselves did not have time to go to the pharmacy. He was always available and we are very thankful to him for all these services!

Clinic on the map
What unique methods of treatment are in Acibadem?

CAR T-Сell Therapy - methods of oncology treatment in AcibademIn the clinic cancer centers, immunotherapy is used. This is an innovative type of cancer treatment, which allows the patient’s own immune system to recognize and destroy cancer cells.

CAR T-Сell Therapy (CAT- Сell Therapy)

Acibadem is the only clinic in Turkey where Car T-Sell Therapy or CAT-Cell therapy is conducted. An innovative type of leukemia and lymph immunotherapy in children and adults, myelomas in adult patients, for whom the treatment for standard international protocols didn’t help.

This complex type of treatment includes a part of leukocytes from patients’ blood, their modification in laboratory conditions, and the return of patients to the blood. These modified own leukocytes destroy leukemic cells. The indicator of the effectiveness of treatment with this method is the same as in Israeli clinics: 85-90% of remissions in children, 80% in adolescents, and 70% in adults.

Immunotherapy of nephroblastoma in children under the American protocol with a children’s oncologist Professor Funda Vesile Chorapchoglu (Funda Vesile Çorapçoğlu).

Treatment of high-risk nephroblastoma in children, except for therapy for international protocols, includes monoclonal antibodies, for example, Dinutuximab (Unituxin) and Naksitamab (Danielza). These are the drugs created in the laboratory, which can find cancer cells in the body and attach to them, which helps patients’ immune cells detect them and destroy them. This improves treatment results and increases the chance of recovery.

 

How does a bone marrow transplant in Acibadem differ from this procedure in other clinics?

The centers of the bone marrow of this clinic are associated with the International Bank of Donor Stem Cells, and in the absence of a related donor or suitable cells in Turkish bone marrow banks, cellular material for transplantation is guaranteed to be selected using an international resource.

In addition, only in this clinic, before transplantation, T Cell Depletion is performed. This is a special preparation of hematopoietic stem cells (bone marrow) for transplanting by removing those cells that can cause the patient’s rejection of donor cells. This procedure guarantees a good result of bone marrow transplantation.

What unique specialists are there in Acibadem and what do they treat?

Prof. Harzem Özger, one of the five best surgeons in the world for the treatment of sarcoma - Acibadem specialistsIn the Acibadem Maslak clinic in Istanbul, a surgeon-orthopedist, professor Harzem Özger practices. He is one of the five best surgeons in the world for the treatment of sarcoma and performs operations even in the most difficult and neglected cases, with which patients are not taken for treatment in other clinics.

Unique specialists include a neurosurgeon, professor Memet Özek, the best surgeon for removing brain tumors and conducting rhizotomy, an operation to relieve spasticity (muscle stiffness) with cerebral paralysis.

In the case of severe and neglected scoliosis, you can turn to a unique orthopedist, surgeon, Professor Ahmet Alanay.

Cardiac surgeon, professor Ersin Erek performs robotic heart operations without complications and with excellent long-term results.

Acibadem has a leading specialist in the field of bone marrow transplantation in Turkey, the head of the Labcell Cell Therapy Center and blood bank, Professor Erjument Ovaly.

There are also many international specialists in all areas of medicine. Doctors increase their professional level and qualifications with the help of regular internships in Europe and the USA.

 

What are surgeons in Acibadem capable of: an interesting case of surgery of the 21st century

In this clinic, several successful operations have already been carried out to separate the Siamese twins. Thus, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Professor Hakan Ağir, and a children’s surgeon, Professor Burak Tander, recently brilliantly operated on the conjoined twins (the operation lasted 24 hours). This type of operation is performed only in several clinics around the world and requires the highest qualifications of surgeons and advanced rehabilitation.

What do they do in Acibadem if the relative donor of the kidneys does not suit the patient in the blood group?

Сross-transplantation of kidney in AcibademIn this case, cross-transplantation of the kidney can be performed in Acibadem.

This method is intended for patients who do not have a compatible donor by the blood group among relatives. If a relative donor is ready to voluntarily give the kidney, in case of incompatibility according to the ABO system, to another patient (with whom there is blood compatibility), then another pair of donor-recipient with the same problem in the centers of organs transplants is selected for them.

For example, a relative donor with blood group B recipient with blood group A transfers the kidney to another patient with blood group B, and a donor with blood group A of the second patient transfers the kidney to the first patient. That is, two pairs of donor recipients help each other. Patients receive a kidney from a non-domestic but suitable donor blood.

 

What robotic operations are carried out at Acibadem?

In the clinic, robotic operations have long been put on stream and are a gold standard for the treatment of many diseases.

Surgical interventions that are performed by a surgeon using a Da Vinci robotic system through small punctures, provide patients with rapid healing, a lack of complications, and a short stay in the clinic.

Кobotic operations at Acibadem: Da Vinci robotic systemThe Da Vinci robot is used to perform operations for the following diseases:

  • adenoma and prostate cancer,
  • kidney cancer
  • stenosis of the ureteral pelvic junction
  • colorectal cancer (cancer of the large intestine)
  • diverticulum and inflammatory intestinal diseases

In gynecology, with the help of a robot, a surgeon is performed:

  • Removing the uterus with uterine cancer and cervix,
  • Seduction of large holes
  • Sling operation when vaginal or uterus drops out (sling urethropexy)
  • Reconstruction of the phallopium pipes

Da Vinci is also used for ENT operations. The TORS method (transoradal robotic surgery) allows removing benign or malignant tumors that develop in the oral cavity, larynx, language and tonsils.

The use of Da Vinci allows surgeons to gain access to the thyroid gland through the axillary cavity. Therefore, after operations on the thyroid gland on the neck, there is no scar from the cut, and the risk of damage to the laryngeal nerve is also prevented.

With the help of a robotic system, many cardiological operations are also carried out:

  • Restoration of the mitral valve and reconstruction of other heart valves
  • Coronary artery bypass grafting
  • Elimination of arrhythmias
  • Elimination of some heart defects

The range of robotic operations in clinics constantly expands, and the results are improving.

 

What cancer and other diseases can be treated in Acibadem without surgery?

For patients who cannot pass surgical procedures for certain reasons (age, state of health, categorical refusal of open or minimally invasive surgery), with several diseases, non-surgical treatment is carried out with the help of a gamma-knife or cyber-foot, as well as some diseases are used cell technology.

Radiosurgery (Gamma-knife and Cyber-knife)

Radiosurgery (Gamma-knife and Cyber-knife) in AcıbademSome malignant and benign tumors are removed by stereotactic radiosurgery (high-precision irradiation using special devices).

Since 2005, Acıbadem with the help of a radio-surgical system of gamma-knife, 7,000 patients with various brain tumors, metastases of different types of cancer in the brain, as well as many other diseases, such as trigeminal neuralgia, arteriovenous malformation have been treated.

Cyber-knife is an improved linear accelerator, which with an accuracy of 0.2 mm focuses highly on treating tumors without affecting healthy tissues (usually, it requires one to several sessions of radiotherapy). Accuracy and safety are achieved due to the system of continuous visualization, taking into account the movement of the tumor when the patient breathes.

Cyber-knife is used to treat lung cancer, prostate cancer, brain tumors, cancer of the head and neck, spine tumors and pancreatic cancer, liver that cannot be treated with other methods. It is effective for some diseases of the spine. Cyber-knife ​​treatment can be repeated with previously irradiated tumors and recurring ones in the same place. Cyber-knife is indispensable for certain tumors that were previously incurable or that could only be removed with the help of disabled surgery (for example, tumors located around the eyes and requiring the removal of the eye).

Cell therapy of joint diseases

For some patients with joint diseases, instead of prosthetics, stem cell treatment may be proposed to restore cartilage tissue.

What advanced diagnostic equipment is there in Acibadem?

Acibadem uses the latest generation computer tomographs and conducts:

  • Computed tomography in AcibademFlash CT – “instant” computed tomography – rapid scanning of lungs and heart with a low radiation dose, which is important for patients who are performed several CT in a short period of time
  • Force CT – computed tomography with the possibility of “freezing” movement and 4D visualization in obese patients, elderly patients, and acute patients.
  • Spect CT allows getting two different types of images individually or at the same time with one scanning of the body, which gives more detailed information for diagnosis
  • Sliding CT is used during various operations for visualization control

The clinic uses only the most powerful magnetic resonance tomographs of MRI 3 Tesla and conducts:

  • Whole Body MRI (MRI of the whole body) in 40 minutes
  • IntraoPerative 3-TESLA MRI (intraoperative MRI) during various operations, primarily on the brain, which optimizes the process of making decisions by a surgeon during the intervention

PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography) is carried out on the most modern tomograph using the safe radiopharmaceuticals of the latest generation.

DSA (Digital Subtraction Angiography) – digital substitution angiography – the most modern vascular visualization method is strengthened by VASO CT technology, which allows getting very detailed images of even the thinnest blood vessels by introducing a minimal amount of contrast agent, which is important for many patients.

Digital Mammography with 3D Tomosynthesis (digital mammography with 3D tomosynthesis) is a three-dimensional scanning of the breast tissue with the production of an image in various projections with an interval of 1 mm allows detecting a tumor of any size and density in the mammary gland.

Acibadem uses the most modern devices for ultrasound studies:

  • 4D Ultrasound of the chest
  • EUS (endoscopic ultrasound) for the gastrointestinal tract
  • Ultra US for various organs
  • EBUS – bronchoscopic ultrasound of the bronchi and lungs

Complex navigation systems are also used to conduct biopsies of different organs (tissue recovery for cell examination). For example, 3D Imaging and Navigation System for Prostate Biopsy.

The presence of a large amount of equipment that is accessible to the latest allows for the quick establishment of an accurate diagnosis using the most sparing methods for the patient and control of the course of treatment.

 

What conditions of stay are offered to foreign patients?
