Hematology is the branch of medicine concerned with the study of the causes, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of haemophilia, lymphoma, leukaemia, sickle-cell anaemia and other blood-related disorders and malignancies. Medical Help Turkey direct patients to the best hospitals to offer medical operations with precision and also to diagnose the diseases at an earlier stage.
Hematology, the study of the blood, works to discover and treat any problems that affect a patient’s red and white blood cells, blood vessels, platelets, bone marrow, spleen, lymph nodes, or the proteins needed for clotting and bleeding. If you’ve been diagnosed with a serious blood disorder, your doctor will refer you to a hematologist, a specialist knowledgeable on how to treat patients with these blood disorders. Hematology treatments can be given to patients with cancer and non-cancer conditions.
Similar to an oncologist, your hematologist will work to formulate a diagnosis, as well as create a specific treatment plan. Your blood cells can tell a doctor a lot about your overall health. When inspected underneath a microscope, blood cells can reveal your full medical history.
Cardiovascular surgery is a medical procedure to correct or repair structural defects resulting from disorders or diseases of the cardiovascular system. The cardiovascular system is part of three independent systems that work together: cardiovascular (heart); pulmonary (lungs) and the veins, arteries and capillaries that transport blood to and from the heart.
Typically the initial diagnosis of a possible disease or disorder in the cardiovascular system comes from the patient’s primary healthcare provider who will refer the patient to a cardiologist.
A cardiologist diagnoses the heart problem and prescribes the appropriate lifestyle and diet changes, medicine and medical procedures. If the cardiologist sees that the patient needs cardiovascular surgery, he or she is referred to a cardiovascular surgeon.
A cardiovascular surgeon then evaluates if surgery is indeed the appropriate medical procedure to correct the problem. Following are some reasons to perform a cardiovascular surgery:
- Heart valve repair or replacement.
- Repair of the heart’s damaged or abnormal structure
- Replace a damaged heart with a healthy one.
- To place a pace maker or other medical devices
Cardiovascular surgery is done for both adults and children patients.
Why people would like to have Cardiovascular Surgery in Turkey?
Statistics show that in last 4-5 years, around 70 per cent of heart surgeries in Turkey were on patients from other countries. Those patients had obviously come to their decisions after their research showed that they can get better quality medical attention and related services at much lower costs in Turkey.
Turkey has good cardiologists / and hospitals
Studies presented at various national and international conventions and symposiums show that cardiovascular surgeries in Turkey are at par if not above world standards. Such high level achievement happened because
- hospitals and other healthcare facilities in Turkey have well-equipped, modern hospitals and highly-trained healthcare
- Turkey’s Ministry of Health together with its assigned independent watchdogs are monitoring hospitals, healthcare institutions and medical practitioners for their compliance technical, quality and medical standards.
- most hospitals in Turkey have received accreditation with any or all of the following: JCI (Joint Commissions International), ISO (International Organization for Standardization), JACHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) as well as affiliation with other top hospitals and healthcare
Cardiovascular surgery is more affordable in Turkey compared to most countries, especially Europe and US.
Patients from other countries will be pleasantly surprised to know that the cost of cardiovascular surgery in Turkey is 65 to 80% lower. Such cost advantage was achieved because hospitals in Turkey have the human resources, infrastructure, equipment and technology to be able to provide the best medical services in an efficient and effective manner. As hospitals gained experiences, they became more efficient and kept costs down.
Relatively low malpractice cases
There are relatively fewer malpractice cases in Turkey compared to other countries. Turkey has also established the Forensic Medicine Association to focus on malpractice cases.
