Why Turkey is also known for its Dental Procedures

Turkish healthcare services are also being noticed around the world. Medical tourists from all over the world journey to Turkey forLasik Eye treatments, hair transplant, cosmetic surgery and dentistry procedures (such as application of zirconium crowns, orthodontic braces andtitanium implants.)
Reasons why medical tourists go to Turkey
Aside from the tourist spots Turkey has to offer, the country has become a high quality dentistry hub. Turkish packages are very low compared to its European neighbors. It’s almost 70% lower and affordable, along with its cosmetic dentistry treatments.
One noticeable reason is because Turkey has a lower cost of living. Because rent, employee wages and expenses are relatively cheaper compared to its European neighbors, its prices of dental procedures are correspondingly lower – making it an ideal destination for all your high-quality and affordable dentistry needs.
Majority of the dental clinics in Turkey are clean, spacious and modern equipped, plus most of them have no waiting lists. Consultation may be free of charge as well. Some clinics offer assistance in arranging extra treatments such as hair-styling, cosmetics, and wrinkle-filling.
Another commendable feature in Turkish dental clinics is that they combine dentistry and holiday packages for their international patients. Some of the dental centers and clinics have international patient departments that coordinate foreign guest pick-ups (from the airport to their centers), and help in hotel accommodation and sight-seeing tours. Interpreting services for the following languages are also being offered such as: English, Arabian, Bulgarian, Russian, Greek, Macedonian, Georgian, and even Kurdish.
Other add-on services that provide more value and customer service include the following: medical second opinion may be free of charge, assisting patients and their relatives during their hospital and holiday stay, and offering free hotel accommodations for certain number of treatments availed by the patients.

Therefore, in Thailand cosmetic centers will customize each eyelid surgery treatment plan for their patients based on their gender, age, aspect of the eyelids and pattern including their budget.

Excess skin on the lower eyelid causes wrinkles and bulges. On the upper eyelids, an extra fold of skin can hang over the eyelashes and get in the way of seeing.

Why are Indonesians traveling to Thailand, Malaysia and South Korea?
Over the past years, the Medical Tourism industry has increased significantly, as more and more people begin to understand and see its advantages. Asia is an important piece in the healthcare tourism market, attracting patients from all over the world. But if Asia is a big player in the industry, does Indonesia share this role?
Unfortunately, the healthcare system in Indonesia is still struggling with increased costs, long waiting lists and the lack of appropriate infrastructure to accommodate all the patients’ needs. Therefore, many Indonesians (around 40%) seek medical help abroad in neighboring Asian countries, particularly Malaysia, South Korea and Thailand.
Seeking medical treatment abroad has become a common practice for Indonesians. Most of them are seeking treatments and procedures for age-related diseases, but also for cancer or chronic diseases like diabetes. Also, more and more Indonesians are suffering from arthritis due to increasing life expectancy, so they are looking for orthopedic treatments. But medical conditions aren’t the only factor that leads them to seek medical care abroad. The desire to look more attractive and younger encourages them to opt for cosmetic procedures abroad.

Gastric Bypass Surgery in Mexicali, Mexico
My name is Nedra D. from Moreno Valley, USA. Since I was a child, I had problems with my weight, but in high school, I managed to lose some pounds due to the physical activities I did. When I gave birth to my first son, that’s when I started to eat excessively, thus more weight gain ensued. With my petite 5’3” frame, I am heavy at 190 lbs.
To prevent high blood pressure and possible diabetes, at 55 years of age, I underwent my first gastric bypass RNY. However, my problem is that months after my first bypass, I have regained the weight I lost. I wanted to jumpstart the weight loss again that’s why I wanted a gastric bypass revision.
However, I was bothered by the cost of surgery and hospitalization. Although I was insured, my policy did not include surgical procedures. And because I didn’t keep the weight off on my first bypass, I had to redo everything plus the expenses. Out of desperation, we explored other options and asked from family and friends until a friend browsed a site – PlacidWay.com and suggested gastric bypass inMexico or Turkey.
Without hesitation, I browsed the site and researched on a list of packages and surgeons who would perform my bypass. Because I was impressed with his credentials and the number of procedures he has performed, I chose Dr. Jorge Maytorena from Mexicali, Mexico. Good thing the websitehas an electronic form and I was able to get a quote of my surgical expenses.

Successful Kidney Stones Surgery in Mexico
Mexico has more than a dozen destinations specialized in medical tourism, where touristic providers join medical care of the highest quality to meet the fields of oncology, orthopedics, cardiology, general surgery, plastic surgery and gastroenterology.
One of the most successful procedure performed in Mexican clinics is the kidney stone surgery, thanks to the highly qualified doctors and nurses to provide care and service with worldwide quality through an extensive infrastructure with cutting-edge medical technology.
Surgery is rarely needed to treat kidney stones. Surgery is only needed when the kidney stone is very large, caused by an infection (staghorn calculi), blocking the flow of urine out of the kidney, or causing other problems like severe bleeding.
Surgery may be needed to remove a kidney stone if it:
- does not pass after a reasonable period of time and causes constant pain
- is too large to pass on its own or is caught in a difficult place
- blocks the flow of urine
- causes an ongoing urinary tract infection
- damages kidney tissue or causes constant bleeding
- has grown larger, as seen on follow-up x-ray

Blurry vision, light sensitivity and overall poor vision due to cataract can all be history with the Phacoemulsification surgery from the best medical centers in Turkey.
The longer you wait the worse vision gets – get your cataract surgery now in Turkey and restore your perfect eyesight permanently!
What is Cataract?
Cataracts are described as a clouding of the lens of the eye. Known as opacity, the condition causes a progressive loss of vision. Untreated cataracts are the leading cause of blindness. Cataracts reduce vision, depth perception, and peripheral vision.
Cataract Surgery Procedure
The surgeon makes a very small incision in the eye and removes the cataract by destroying it or breaking it up with ultrasound waves. Pieces are removed. The process is known as phacoemulsification. After pieces of the cataract are removed, the surgeon replaces the cataract with an artificial or intraocular lens.
The cataract surgery is generally done under a local anesthetic. The surface of the eye is numbed with eye drops or an injection. General anesthesia is usually only offered to those who can’t hold still during the surgical process. The entire procedure lasts about 30 minutes. Cataract surgery is considered a same-day surgery.

Make Hair Loss History by Choosing Hair Transplant Abroad
Easy, Efficient & Painless
Hair loss can affect anyone no matter what their gender or race would be. Alopecia is not easy to deal with, especially when you are in your early 30s, and people mistaken you for being 40 years old or when you are not considered young anymore because you suffer from hair loss.
Of course, there are the optimistic ones who say that it is better this way as they pay less at the hairdresser, they don’t have to wash their hair so often as before, cut the expenses on hair products and the hat they are always wearing looks really good on them. Let’s face it though. Nobody likes to be bold, unless on purpose.
Every person who has to deal with hair loss goes through the five stages of grief:
- Denial - when you look in the mirror and you say to yourself that you are just imagining and it’s because of the stress at work and the worries you have and it will pass
- Anger - when you start asking why is this happening to you and what did you do to deserve this. You are also looking for persons to blame (maybe your dad?)
- Bargaining - hoping that you are mistaken and only imagining and wishing for this not to be true
- Depression - you realize that your hair continues to fall no matter how hard you try to deny it, and you can even see that little bald area on top of your head.
- Acceptance - this is the moment when you get together and you start looking for solutions. From expensive special cosmetic products and medicine, to rubbing your head with onion and garlic and all sorts of weird homemade mixtures.

Kidney Transplant Procedure
At their most basic definition of function, the kidneys are responsible for filtering waste products from the bloodstream and excreting them from the body in the form of urine. The kidneys are also responsible for removing excess fluids from the blood and body. Damaged kidneys lose their ability to filter such fluids and wastes, which then accumulate in the body, causing multiple complications. Such situations are defined as kidney failure. While every individual has two kidneys, only one donated kidney is necessary to replace the function of two damaged kidneys. A person can survive and lead a relatively healthy life with only one fully functioning kidney.
Living-donor kidney transplantations are more common today, but donors must specifically match blood type as well as commonalities in order for such a transplant to be considers successful and worth pursuing. If an immediate donor, such as a family member, is not available, an individual is placed on a kidney transplant waiting list, which may take several months or even a year or more to find a suitable donor.
Who Benefits From A Kidney Transplant?
Anyone experiencing kidney failure caused by chronically and uncontrolled high blood pressure, diabetes, or other conditions that damage the kidneys may be suitable for a kidney transplant. Transplants are only considered after traditional management methods have been performed such as adaption of diet, treatments, and medications. In many cases, a kidney transplant is beneficial to an individual who may otherwise be facing a lifetime of dialysis treatments.
Kidney Transplant Procedure
Prior to a transplant, a patient will be assessed for their overall general health and wellness, as well as their potential for enduring and overcoming possible complications of a kidney transplant. Other medical conditions that may otherwise hamper the success of a kidney transplant will be carefully assessed. An individual must also be knowledgeable, able and willing to take anti-rejection medications, possibly for the rest of their lives, to ensure that the new kidney is not rejected by the body.
After a patient has been matched with a likely donor, the patient will be alerted and expected at their hospital within 24 hours, sometimes less. There, the patient will be prepared for surgery. General anesthesiology is given, so that the patient is unconscious during the procedure, and won’t feel any pain or discomfort.
