I am Anna ,Vato’s mother from Georgia. In September 2015 4-year old Vato was diagnosed with acute leukemia. It was the most difficult time for our family. We decided to treat our son a hospital in Turkey. I can say that we were in the hands of the most reliable doctors in the world. I am happy today due to hard work of doctor Ismail and doctor Hilmi, who are professionals and highly dedicated to their work. I am happy to wake up every day now as I know I will see my healthy son’s smile. It was them who helped us to overcome the most difficult period as they encouraged and supported us throughout. We were not afraid of negative side effects of chemo therapy as we knew that doctor Ismail and doctor Hilmi will support us and will help Vato to endure illness. I am incredibly thankful to them as they gave us my child again. Being thankful is only a tiny thing I can do. We came back to Georgia two months ago and we are still given protective medical care under their guidance via phone calls every day. Thank you for everything doctor Ismail and doctor Hilmi.

I visited this hospital for general medical examination. I previously have received medical service from many hospitals worldwide. This is the best and highest-quality hospital. Medical examination by medical doctors is perfect. I would like to particularly mention Dr. Alp Burak Çataloğlu. Moreover, nurses, allied personnel and room services are good. Hospital is so beautiful and diverging. I wish this level of quality is maintained in your services.

Thank you.

In March 2015, dysphagia appeared even when drinking water.  Treatment was to start according to the results shown by endoscopy but the reality was not as anticipated.  A malign tumor was identified in the "esophagus", which is the starting point of the alimentary canal.  Unfortunately, our joint efforts to find a solution and get a result with the surgeons we consult in the city where we live devastated, confronting us directly with the statements in the literature.

The tumor was bigger than 4,5 cm and a shrunk to 3 cm after three sessions of chemotherapy. This was incredible news after all that has happened.  Then we went on with belief that this operation may become much easier after another chemotherapy treatment of three sessions but unfortunately we were devastated by the PET results, the tumor grew again.  And unfortunately, we were just about to start looking for solutions in other places but then all roads miraculously led us to the name "Prof. Dr. Oktar Asoğlu".

Upon examining the existing reports, PET and tomography results, Dr. Oktar Asoğlu analyzed the situation and explained what the next stages are.   Of course this was not an ordinary operation, it was a "Radical surgery", as defined by Dr. Oktar.  He informed us about all probabilities.  He assured us, even though we have experienced the same thing before; believe me, it is undescribable.  This situation which, I believe, results from the confidence caused by the experience, was a light shed on to the six month period having passed like a nightmare.

The operation was very successful and our esteemed physician Dr. Oktar Asoğlu and his team have never left us alone during the stay in hospital. They clearly responded all our questions whether meaningful or not. They reassured us.  And they were with us when we are happy. 

I admit that I was a tough patient; I had endless questions and scenarios during the process.   What happened was not easy to endure but Dr. Oktar always explained what I wondered about to me tirelessly with good-humour and broad experience in spite of his schedule; and this is priceless...

All my best, Dr. Oktar; as you say, we have become a family and I hope to see you in the times of health. Endless thanks...

LİV Hospital

I, as the son of V.G, a bypass patient of yours, would like to share this letter I have written with you and the hospital.

First of all, we started to get services from your hospital with our introduction to Asst. Prof. Alp Burak ÇATAKOĞLU, MD. Upon his recommendations, we received many services from the hospital. I personally was hospitalized for an infection treatment.  My mother N.G tachycardia problem was solved by Asst. Prof. Enis OGUZ, MD.  My wife gave birth to our child at your hospital. My father had an angio and a by-pass operation at your hospital.

We were satisfied with all these services. But what made me write this thank you letter is actually the close interest and sensitive approach that you exhibited towards our family during the process of the by-pass operation of my father.

I was in doctor-patient relationship with many physicians so many times.However, I have never seen such an approach on not only managing their jobs but also the patient so well, like you do. In the beginning, we thought that the reason why they work so meticulously is that our patient will undergo a serious operation, but then, you assisted us in all post-operation processes as if we were a family member. Firstly you have won our trust and then our love and respect.  We thank you for your close interest in all treatments in the post-operative infection processes of our patient. Your quick decision making, your management of the patient and their family psychologically and most importantly, for giving us the feeling that you are a family member.

Anyone can become a doctor but if one intends to be a doctor, they should do what you did if they want to be is able to perform this divine profession, like you.It should not be regarded as only a profession but an involvement with empathy and the sense of responsibility.On behalf of the G. family and my father, I thank you for offering such a quality service to us and wish you continued success.

Hello, I am K.Y.

I am very pleased to see that the feeling of confidence I had at the very first moment I entered the hospital is not for nothing.   

I personally experienced that Liv Hospital not only appeals to the eye but also is very functional.

The greater part in this, dear Dr. Çağatay, is yours and of your team.

Your calmness and your self confidence during the course of the operation made me decide much easier.  I was convinced that I will recover when you were leaving my room.  As a result of a meticulous search, I understood that I was not wrong and went on with the procedure confidently. 

I am sincere opinion is that a sense of confidence dominates the room when you enter every time to check me and this made me very comfortable.

With respect to the other services, the equipment of the hospital, care and interest shown by the staff makes one comfortable (even if this is just a small detail) but a continuing care is pleasing.    Thanks to the staff, I didn't even need an attendant. 

The dear nurses were always punctual and with me whenever I needed them.  Of course my physiotherapist installed confidence to me and encouraged me with his/her authority. 

Dear  Dr. Çağatay, you relieved me so that I feel I can run up to the store and come back.  I put my prayers out for you.

Have a long life and restore the people in need like myself to health.

Thank you for everything.

See you in the premier night.

Makoplasty surgical techniques have got F.A back on her feet after being confined to her home for years by painful arthritis on her knee caps.

Having met Liv Hospital Specialist in Orthopedics and Traumatology Assoc. Prof. Dr. Uğur Haklar through a TV program,
F.A recounts her story: “Before the operation I used to take pain killers five times a day, I couldn’t bend my knees and walked like a crab. Now I do everything for myself – I can run, swim and ride a bicycle.” A robotic surgery technique called MAKOplasty means instead of having to wait for total knee replace­ments, patients can now get back on their feet with partial replacements. Explaining that she was able to get up without assistance just four days after the operation, F.A goes on to say that she began pedaling and treadmill exercises 17 days after surgery. F. can now easily bend her knee to an angle of 130 degrees and is enjoying the pleasure of living under her own steam. Uğur Haklar tells us “F.A. was admitted with severe pain in both knees. Most of the cartilage was worn out and the bones were rubbing against each other. She had difficulty in moving and could only walk a short distance. Doctors she consulted correctly told her that she would have to wait till the age of 60-65 for knee replacement surgery. But since we have MAKOplasty technology, we were able to give F. knee replacements without her having to wait. Her outer knee cartilage was nor­mal. We applied MAKOplasty surgical techniques only to the inner cartilage that had worn down. The operation went well. She also managed the post-op physiotherapy programs at a good pace. She is thrilled to have regained her freedom.”

Screening carried out within the scope of Liv Hospital’s “Heart to Heart” social responsibility project revealed the possibility of co­ronary artery problems and an angiography was carried out that showed widespread and critical arterial blocka­ges. The decision to operate was made without delay. E.E. gave his consent but stated that his beliefs would not allow him to receive a blood transfusion. Liv Hospi­tal Specialists in Cardiovas­cular Surgery Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ahmet Özkara and Surgeon Dr. Cenk İndelen affirmed that they would follow E.E.’s wishes. Dr. Özkara described the procedure in these words: “We explained that the surgery would be painstaking and that we co­uld filter blood accumulated during the operation using a device called a cellsaver. We performed a 7-vessel by-pass using both Mr. E.E.’s chest arteries. The entire surgical team worked hand in hand with the anesthesia team, ICU and ward staff. E.E. was discharged after 6 days without receiving any blood.”

Liv Hospital Medical Director and Specialist in General Surgery Prof. Dr. Oktar Asoğlu carried out emergency surgery to remove a two meter section of Dutch A.J.S’s infected intestine.

Dutchman A.J.V.S.H had been captain of the 1,200-person ‘Prinsendam’ on the round journey from Piraeus to Mikonos, Kuşa­dası, Cyprus and back for the past 5 years when he was struck by a one-in-a-million intestinal blockage at sea. On the advice of doctors in Çanakkale he anchored in Istanbul and was admitted to Liv Hospital.

‘LIKE A SCI-FI MOVIE’

Schoonhoven’s stomach became more and more bloated every day. When the swelling reached such an extent that he was unable to put on his socks in the morning, the ship docked in Istanbul on the advice of the ship’s doctor and he was rushed to hospital.

Essential examinations and tests revea­led an intestinal blockage. General Sur­geon Prof. Dr. Oktar Asoğlu and his team rushed Schoonhoven to the operating theater where they took just ten minutes to remove the 2 meter infected section of his intestine. After 2 days in intensive care and with follow-up tests proving negative for cancer, Schoonhoven reco­unted his experience:

“My stomach started to swell up before I even had time to grasp what was going on. At first I thought it was flatulence. I didn’t give it much thought. I realized something was seriously wrong when I felt so bad I couldn’t get out of bed in the morning. Turkey was a great chance for me. Both my tests and the surgery I had were carried out meticulously. I felt like I was in some sci-fi movie. I am really grateful to Professor Asoğlu and Liv Hospital.”

Ailing 74 year old R.P. came to Turkey from Bulgaria to recover his health. As well as suffering various complications as a result of bladder cancer, R.P. had cirrhotic liver, diabe­tes, high blood pressure coupled with problems with his heart and lungs. Tumors were discovered on both his kidneys during surgery for bladder cancer about seven months ago. Explai­ning that doctors in Bulgaria had recommended Liv Hospital, R.P.’s wife said “If he had been operated on in Bulgaria he would have stayed in hospital for 10 – 15 days. We contacted Liv Hospital and got a very rapid response. We saw there were treatment options that were not available in Bulgaria. The 15 day hospitalization period in Bulgaria was reduced to just 5 days here. Yes, the surgery carried certain risks but we did not enco­unter anything negative. So we are thrilled. We are very happy with Liv Hospital. We have never seen such a technologically well equipped hospital.”

A DIFFICULT CASE SUCCESSFULLY TREATED

Treatment alternatives were discussed with R.P. , who was struggling with a number of additional health issues. Explaining that they had carried out a Robotic Partial Nephrectomy, Liv Hospital urology specialist Assoc. Prof. Dr. Haluk Akpınar stated “This high-risk patient’s surgery went very well. We removed the cancerous part of his kidneys and sewed up the region using keyhole surgery techniques without the need for open surgery. We used special methods to block bleeding and performed a bloodless operation. We mobilized the patient the same evening and he began to eat the next day. The success of a very major operation is down to superb materials, the quality of the opera­ting theater, our team, an experienced surgeon, and great ove­rall hospital healthcare services – in other words, teamwork”.

At the age of 11, K.K , now 17 and living in Kazakhstan, went to rescue a puppy who had escaped into an electricity sub-station. As she was helping the puppy she received an electric shock severe enough to damage both her hands and shoulder region. In spite of surgery to rescue her hands they could not be saved while adhesions in her shoulder prevented her from being able to life her left arm. With two prosthetic hands, K.K. traveled to Germany twice and received five operations within a period of three months. Referred to Liv Hospital by a friend, Kryajeuska­ya says “I came to Turkey dreaming of getting a new shoulder. Now I can lift my left arm. And the scars are disappearing.”

Liv Hospital Plastic, Reconstructive and Cos­metic Surgeon Dr. Ümran İleri explains “K.K. was admitted with deep scarring and immobility in her left arm. We have reduced the extent of scarring by 50% and restored movement to her left arm. Our objective now is to reduce the remaining scarring to a more tolerable level. Skin taken from her feet was used for her lost hands. We have begun laser treatment to reduce the scarring on her feet.”
