Morbid obesity is an important health problem threatening the whole world. It is known that there is a continuous relationship among body mass index and morbidity and mortality. Surgical procedures used in severe obesity can cause serious weight loss, which can heal comorbid conditions.
If the body mass index is 40kg / m2 and above, or more than 35 kg / m2 plus comorbid diseases (diabetes, sleep apnea syndrome, heart disease, hypertension, etc.) are present, there is a candidacy for obesity surgery. Today, two treatment options, called Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass and Sleeve Gastrectomy (Tubular Stomach), have been proposed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Consensus Development Conference, and both methods can be successfully applied as laparoscopic.
Our JCI accredited hospitals where obesity surgery applications are performed have sufficient specialists and technological equipment and infrastructure facilities to perform the necessary evaluation and consultations before surgery. Our hospitals have a third level adult intensive care unit and an endoscopy unit where possible complications formed in the postoperative period can be managed in a timely and effective manner, and operating rooms which have the infrastructure and surgical equipment conditions for obesity. Before the operation, with a multidisciplinary approach, the patient who is examined by the experts of mental health diseases, anesthesia, internal medicine, cardiology, chest diseases, and endocrine departments is informed about the benefits, harms, possible operation risks of the necessary surgical methods and procedures which will be performed.
The operation is performed by the surgeons who are knowledgeable about the application of bariatric surgery and advanced laparoscopic techniques and who have the ability and experience to intervene and correct any problem. After the operation which takes about 40-90 minutes, the fluid intake is started after 2 days, and the patient is discharged after 50 hours. After a year, the patient loses 80% of his or her excess weight.
Cosmetic processes involve a wide range of operations and treatments to improve the appearance of a person, not for basic medical reasons. These processes are performed by a doctor known as a cosmetic surgeon or plastic surgeon. Cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by health insurance since it is not a typical medical procedure. Types of Cosmetic Surgery are under the roof of Hundreds of procedures and cosmetic processes. Some of them are abdominoplasty, breast implants, face lifting, nose surgery, and liposuction. However, all the processes are not surgical. For example, non-surgical treatments are available to improve the overall appearance of the skin, such as microdermabrasion, laser peeling, and chemical peeling. In addition to this, some conditions like vitiligo disease that lost color on the skin can be treated with makeup, self-coat, skin dye, skin medication or mild treatments. In the case of repair of the body after a disease, injury or congenital defect, cleft lip or cleft palate repair operations are common cosmetic processes. Women can perform breast reconstruction when they have one or two breasts removed due to breast cancer. Wounds may also heal after skin cancer or injury.
The Benefits and The Risks
The benefits of cosmetic surgery are based primarily on how people feel themselves rest upon the improvement in their appearance. However, many cosmetic surgeries carry some risks. For example, bleeding, infection, and scarring are potential risks associated with any type of surgery. Breast implants have the potential to leak over time. Liposuction can cause burns, numbness or accidental organ puncture. Every type of cosmetic surgery has its own risks; no matter what procedure, it is important to weigh these risks with the considered potential benefits.
Cancer Treatments: The most common treatment modalities in cancer are surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. Less frequently, hormone therapies, biological treatment methods and targeted therapies are used. These treatment methods are applied alone or together.
Euromedicare works with the modern oncology centers that is equipped with specific oncological diagnostic and treatment technologies and offers the necessary treatments on medical oncology, radiation oncology, nuclear medicine, and molecular oncology.
Cancer treatment is a treatment group that obligates many expertise branches to work together. The best treatment option is determined by evaluating the appropriate treatment options with the fields of expertise like Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Oncology. Different surgical branches, radiation oncology, and medical oncology specialists work together. In addition to the significance of the department of pathology during diagnosis, the departments of radiology and nuclear medicine are of great importance in order to strengthen the diagnosis and monitoring the treatment results.
In the cancer diagnosis and treatment, Euromedicare provides the fastest and most reliable treatment by cooperating with the hospitals where experienced specialists work that use advanced medical technologies.
Modern imaging possibilities enable the initial diagnosis and staging of cancer, determination of its prevalence, assessment of response to the treatment, determination of the intensity of live cancer cells which will be exposed to the treatment and the most accurate treatment planning for the patient. These services are carried out in our specialized centers serving international standards.
Our aim is to keep the comfort of all cancer patients at a high level.
Gamma Knife Treatment: Gamma knife is an extraordinary treatment system that eliminates the diseased brain tissue with gamma rays without any need for any cuts. Both benign brain tumors and malignant brain tumors can be treated with a Gamma knife. In addition to the brain tumor, Gamma knife is also used in vascular brain diseases and functional brain diseases (trigeminal neuralgia, Parkinsonism, epilepsy). Gamma knife treatment which cures the tumors without disturbing the body’s natural balance is defined as the point shot in cancer treatment. This method, which does not require a surgical operation, is an alternative to surgery and radiotherapy on many good and malignant tumors and different diseases. During treatment, radiation beams are directed to the target to destroy or stop the development of a tumor or diseased area.
CyberKnife System: An ultramodern technology for the treatment of cancer and non-cancerous tumors and other diseases requiring radiation therapy. This method is used in many parts of the body like prostate, lung, brain, spinal cord, spine, head and neck, liver, pancreas, kidney cancers and different gynecological cancer treatments as a safer alternative to classical cancer treatment or in difficult cases where surgery is not possible with classical surgical approaches. What makes the CyberKnife System unique is the completely robotic controlled radiation system in it. The robotic system design is equipped with real-time imaging and allows for a maximum dose of radiation to the targeted tumor focus with a smaller sensitivity than the millimeter, even when the CyberKnife system is applied from different angles.
The CyberKnife – one of the most advanced forms of radiosurgery-is a painless, non-invasive treatment that delivers high doses of precisely targeted radiation to destroy tumors or lesions within the body. It uses a robotic arm to deliver highly focused beams of radiation. The flexibility of the robotic arm makes it possible to treat areas of the body, such as the spine and spinal cord, that can’t be treated by other radio-surgery techniques.
In the hair transplantation, the amount of hair and how it is taken up is important as well as the direction of the transplanted hair and the nature of the front hairline is as important as the amount of hair planted. Today, the majority of hair transplantation operations are performed with FUE method which leaves no traces. Since the transplantation is performed under the local anesthesia with sedation, the patients who are concerned about taking general anesthesia can confidently make a decision and prefer FUE technique. Before the application of FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method, the transplantation of hair follicles under the local anesthesia to the hairless areas by taking into account the natural hair growth angle and direction is visualized in computer and offered to the patients. After the approval of our patients, hair transplantation is carried out. After hair transplantation, a special bandage is applied to the head area. The patient is discharged after 1-2 hours. Even though it is very rare, pain is controlled by pain painkillers.
Although very rare, complications like undesirable infection or scarring can be seen. In order to reduce the possibility of the probability of the complications, the operation should be performed by an experienced medical doctor in the hospital environment. On the second day, the patient’s head is gently washed with the first washing lotion.
The patient continues to washing every day, and a week later, the swelling takes down, and the crust formation ends. After three weeks, PRP or mesotherapy can be done. After the transplantation, the transplanted area should be protected. The patient shouldn’t enter the sea in the first week and shouldn’t be exposed to the sun. The transplanted area should remain dry and the towel should not be used while drying. In the first month, 40% of the hair is shed, and it starts to grow again in 2-4 months. In six months, hair grows prominently. About a year later, it takes its final form. Since the transplanted hair is taken from the area coded not to fall, there will be no shedding, and the hair grows with the same color and character as it belongs to the person.
Eyebrow and eyelash transplantation process: eyebrow and eyelash transplantation process is performed by the plastic surgeon and expert team in the hospital environment under operating room conditions. This is a satisfactory hair root transplantation procedure that is usually performed in a short period of time like 1-2 hours by painless local anesthesia.
Beard transplantation Treatment: The causes of beard thinning may be genetic, hormonal, disease-based or the side effects of medication. The treatment of these diseases allows us to achieve positive results.
Mustache Transplantation Treatment: It is a treatment method that will please you without leaving any traces and brings you a decisive solution only in one weekend.

What is the transplantation?
Organ transplantation is a medical procedure in which an organ is removed from one body and placed in the body of a recipient, to replace a damaged or missing organ. The donor and recipient may be at the same location, or organs may be transported from a donor site to another location. Except for the heart transplantation, a significant part of the transplantation can be performed from living donors to recipients.
Liver, kidney, pancreas, small intestine, and heart can be taken from the cadaver and transplanted to the patient.
In Turkey, 75-80% of organ transplants are carried out using the healthy organs obtained from living donors. In such transplantations, a person who is completely healthy is operated and a part or half of the organ is taken. Although this is an undesirable situation, we have to do it to keep people alive, but there is a reverse situation in other countries. The organ transplantations from living donors and cadavers (dead people) are at the rate of 25% and 75-80%, respectively, and these are the differences between transplantation process in Turkey with the process in Europe and in the USA. However, as long as the transplantations are done in good hands, there is no statistical difference between the success rate. Organ Transplant Surgery in Turkey is performed with modern technology and techniques. In 2017, a total of 4860 organ transplantations were performed in Turkey, and 4536 of them were Turkish citizens, and 324 of them were foreign nationals.
Organ transplantation operations are important and sensitive operations; however, with modern surgical technology and techniques, transplantation operations can be completely safe and non-bleeding. For instance; with laparoscopic surgeries (closed surgeries), people continue their normal lives after 1 week or 10 days; In terms of daily life, they never have any physical obstacles.
Who can be organ donors?
According to the regulation of the Ministry of health, organ transplantations can be done among relatives till fourth degree. With the approval of the Regional Ethics Committees, organ transplantations from non-relative donors may also be done. In terms of organ transplants, donor changes which are called as cross-transplantation can also be done within the legal framework. The health institution chosen for transplantation is important. In order to perform organ transplantation in a hospital, the center should be at a high level of service. Organ transplantation is not only a process related to surgery. For the pre and post processes of organ transplantation, it is very important to ensure the collaboration of the polyclinics, laboratories, imaging units, and many clinics. You can be a very good surgeon, you can have a very good anesthesia team, your operating room conditions can be great, but that doesn’t always mean you’ll get successful results. Organ transplantation is a multidisciplinary study. Therefore, only the health institutions that have completed this study can apply organ transplantation.
Today, kidney, liver, heart, lung, pancreas and small bowel transplantations are successfully performed. There are currently a total of 24 787 patients waiting for organ transplants in Turkey, and 87% of these patients are waiting for kidney transplantation and 9% are waiting for liver transplantation (https://organ.saglik.gov.tr/0TR/70Istatistik/OrganNakilIstatistikKamusal.aspx).
Organ donation and transplantation in Turkey is carried out within the framework of the laws, regulations and the legislation of the Ministry of Health.
If the cadaver will be used in organ transplantation, the time passed between the remove of the organ from the cadaver and the transplantation is very important. There is more time for kidney transplantation operations compared to other organs. It is allowed to pass 36 hours between the rescue and transplantation of the organ. A liver should be transplanted within 8 to 9 hours. Later, the hospital conducts a number of tests to ensure that the organ transplantation does not adversely affect the patient’s health status. The patient takes a few medications before the operation. Since they suppress the body’s natural immune response rejecting the foreign organs, so they are called immunosuppressive drugs.
In kidney transplant operations, the patient’s own dysfunctional kidneys are usually left in the body. The donated organ is transplanted into the lower abdomen and then attached to the main blood vessels in the pelvis. The ureter is sutured to the bladder to allow the urine to flow out of the new kidney.
The liver is completely removed during transplantation. The transplanted organ may be a part of a liver or a complete liver. Partial organ grows into the original size within a few months. The donated organ is placed in place of the removed organ and then the blood vessels and bile ducts are connected.
Last month with the last transplantation, Inonu University Turgut Ozal Medical Center Liver Institute in Malatya was on the first rank in Europe and second rank in the world. The institute which has started to the liver transplantation 15 years ago, performed 747 transplantation in the first 10 years and performed its 2017th liver transplantation at 27/8/2017. It is on the first rank in Europe and second rank in the world according to the number of annual liver transplantation.
First lung transplant operation in Turkey was performed to a patient with lung cancer in 2009. With the first successful lung transplant in Turkey which was performed by the team under the presidency of Prof. Dr. Cemal Asım Kutlu, Turkey’s name was among the few countries that perform successful practices in this area. Successful lung transplantations continued to be performed in later years. According to a statement of the Organ Transplantation Department of the Ministry of Health, 42 lung transplantations were performed in Turkey in 2017.
Heart transplantation is a process of replacing the patient’s dysfunctional heart with a healthy human heart. After the development of brain death, healthy heart received from people whose organs have been donated is transplanted to the recipient patients who had previously been decided to have a heart transplant.
*What is a dental implant?
The implant is artificial titanium tooth roots that are placed in the jawbone instead of the teeth lost due to various reasons. Implants provide a better speech and chewing function than traditional coatings and prostheses and ensure a natural look on your face. The implant is a comfortable and reliable application. The operation can be performed with local anesthesia without any pain or discomfort. General anesthesia can also be applied if necessary. The implant can be done without damaging the other teeth in one tooth loss. In cases of total edentulism, the implant can be preferred for a more comfortable use instead of a movable prosthesis.
*Advantages of Implant
Implant prostheses form the closest structure to the natural tooth. Implant prostheses provide better chewing and speech function than traditional prostheses and ensure a much more aesthetic appearance than other prostheses. Owing to the implant, the lack of teeth can be removed without touching the solid teeth adjacent to it. In people who use the implant-supported total prosthesis, the prosthesis is provided to better fit into the mouth.
Even if you have only one tooth missing, you should prefer implant treatment.
For the integration of the titanium structure with the bone, a period of 2-4 months should have waited. If the jawbone is also treated during the operation, this period can be up to 6 months.
• Will I have a hard surgery?
Since the local anesthesia is applied during the implant operation, you do not feel pain. You should take your medications before the operation, and follow your doctor’s advice after the procedure.
What are the complications that can occur after the implant surgery?
There may be swelling on the cheek. This swelling that we expect to pass in a short period of time can be overcome by ice compress made on the first day. As long as you take the medications that your doctor recommends, you won’t have severe pain. Smoking increases the falling risk of your implant.
• After Treatment
Following the implant applications, many patients can return to social life on the same day. For the prosthesis making onto the implant which is the second stage of implant treatment, It is required to wait for 2-4 months after the operation for the integration of the implant with the jawbone.
Although the dental implants are known as an expensive treatment at first glance, they provide many advantages such as non-damaging application to the neighboring teeth, comfort, and aesthetic appearance. You can use your implant for many years without any problems. In many people, the implants remain lifelong unproblematic within the mouth. There are many factors that affect the unproblematic use of implants. The most important of these is the importance given by the patient to oral hygiene. With the right oral care, your implants allow you to easily laugh, talk and eat for life.
• Who should get it?
Implantation cannot be performed on each patient. The implant application is not suitable to the people who have poor general health status, people with bad habits, and people who have improper jawbones structure.
* MEETING AT THE AIRPORT
You can safely have your implant operations in dental hospitals in which we contract in many cities, especially in Istanbul. We take our guests from the airport with VIP vehicles to the dental hospitals and dental treatment clinics or to the hotel where you will be staying.

In order to make your arrival in Turkey more enjoyable, we offer an alternative tour and entertainment program suggestions at times other than your treatment.
In Vıtro Fertilization Treatment
Recent developments in In Vıtro Fertilization (IVF) treatment increase the success rates in pregnancy. The selection of sperm under a special microscope with the application of IMSI (intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection) is the finest example of this. IMSI technique enlarges the sperm 6600 times and allows better evaluation of sperm morphology and ensures the sperm injection into the egg by selecting the correct sperm that will provide the pregnancy.
The micro-fluid chip technology which provides to reach healthy sperm with solid DNA in the male factor infertility problem that causes repetitive In Vıtro Fertilization failure also provides an extra 30% increase in success rate. Embryoscope is one of the most important developments in embryology laboratories in recent years.
The embryoscope which is a state-of-the-art infertility device that contains fertilized eggs imitates the environment provided by the mother’s uterus and allows the microscopic cameras to monitor the development of the embryo from the outside.
Embryoscope which makes it easier to decide which embryo should be transferred by looking at the quality of the embryo is the most up-to-date technology used by in vitro fertilization technicians.
