Overall the service has been very good, Airport transfer to hotel was seamless and professional. My liaison person who deals with all aspects of my medical timetable has also been excellent. The hotel they use Sealife is clean and comfortable. I have had my eye operation and am now in the recovery phase. My original schedule given to me was not the one I received arriving in Turkey but I think that had more to do with a weekend arrival and overall didn’t make much difference .
Recently I had Gastric Sleeve Surgery with Dr. Celik and his team and I would like to say a few things about the surgery and his team. I really had a hard time making a decision. I was 265 lb. A friend of mine told me that I could have Gastric Sleeve Surgery and I could get rid of excess weight. There were lots of questions in my mind; Where could I have the surgery? Who is the best surgeon for this kind of surgery? Is Turkey safe? What happens if there is a complication? blah blah.. After deep research and a long period of consideration, I decided to have the surgery with Dr.Celik. It was the best decision I've ever made in my life after marriage.
Great clinic - would recommend. Great service, precision and great medical coordination for patients to feel at-ease. I was impressed by the level of professionalism and the attention given to patients. It's always a bit stressful to use an overseas clinic but Formedi made it very easy to engage with and gave due attention to patients alongside very relevant advice for success.
I travelled from the UK to have a gastric sleeve two years ago and I honestly can say they were really amazing from start to finish. Also, they covered my flight tickets. It was the best decision going to Turkey and getting my surgery done by Dr Gungor Gul. Now I do feel better thanks to Sanamentum. I’m so grateful to the team, thank you so much.

2nd time in 4 years I’ve had surgery through surgery TR , amazing , smooth experience from start to finish , Emery my host was brilliant , he made my journey even more brilliant Damla our point of contact in the uk was brilliant from the outset. The surgeon MR Gokhan Temiz was so nice and he listened to me and gave me exactly what I wanted , Thank you to everyone involved as I know I haven’t named everyone but thank you to all . Would never go anywhere else , ALWAYS TR SURGERY.
I have been and had a couple of surgeries with the amazing Dr Duygu Aksoy, she is amazing and I would not go anywhere else for any future treatments. All of the girls at the clinic are lovely and always helpful when I have asked questions. They only negative is the Language barrier but then that’s more my fault than there’s as I travel from the UK to Antalya for my treatments and cant speak a word of Turkish but between us we work through this, Dr Duygu Aksoy and a couple of girls there speak a little English.
I felt very comfortable as everything was explained at each stage. My gastric sleeve for weight loss surgery was done in this clinic as recommended by a friend who did hers in 2020. From the moment I contacted Dr Mani, I felt very comfortable from the way he answered my questions. On arrival at the airport, a very friendly driver picked me and my sister to the hospital. I was quite impressed by how organised they were. I was admitted in a very comfortable room and my sister also had a bed. Pre-operation test started that same night and in the morning I was given a full medical Check prior to my operation and I was very impressed by the modern equipment and cleaning in place. I felt very comfortable as everything was explained at each stage. After my surgery on 23/03/2022, I had a little pain but did not struggle because very outstanding nurses were up to date with pain killers and IV fluid. A few hours after, I was able to walk up and down the corridor. Following surgery, Dr Mani and his team checked in on me daily. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. An informative lecture was given to me by dietitian Eren. My sister was also well looked after by the team. We were moved to a beautiful hotel that was paid by the hospital as I booked to stay a little longer but it was not a problem to Dr Mani. The driver and the media Coordinator took us around the city when we needed them. It was like a holiday to us. Dr Mani have been replying to every question I have asked since returning home in the UK. I am looking forward to going back there after my weight loss. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone who might need their service.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery is a weight loss procedure in which a large part of the stomach is surgically removed, reducing the stomach size by 75% to 80%, with the remaining portion of the stomach looking like a banana or a sleeve. Given the severely reduced stomach size, patients will be unable to consume and digest as much food before quashing their hunger and feeling full - as a result, rapid weight loss can be achieved. This type of surgery is non-reversible and should only be considered as a final option.
A person is termed obese if their body mass index (BMI) is greater than 40 and their weight is 100 lbs / 50 kg more than their ideal weight. For these people, Bariatric Surgery is an available option. There are many associated risks concerned with Obesity that can lead to hypertension, infertility, diabetes, sleep apnea, and much more. When methods, such as dieting and exercising, do not work, a Gastric Sleeve procedure can be the final solution.
It's important to keep in mind, however, that not everyone is a good candidate to this procedure. Each individual should carefully consider the best options available to them, considering present condition, health history, cost, recovery time, success rate and pros and cons of the surgery.
Surgery is performed under general anesthesia using a laparoscope, with several small incisions being made on the belly, a tube fitted with a camera (laparoscope) is then inserted through these incisions to give a clear picture of the insides. The surgeon will view these images, before beginning the process of surgically removing 75% to 80% of the stomach's volume using special surgical instruments. The remaining stomach pouch now resembles a dramatically reduced sleeve or banana. All the instruments are removed and the incisions are stitched and bandages applied to the wounds.
Gastric sleeve surgery is an inpatient procedure that lasts about one hour in the operation theatre. After this, you are moved to a recovery room where your vitals are monitored. A two to three days hospital stay is required after surgery and you are discharged when your condition is stable. You should stay in Turkey for at least 7-8 days for follow up check-ups. During this period, you are kept under review and the stitches are removed after 5 to 7 days.
It will take two to three months to get back to normal meals and the amount of food you will eat is considerably decreased. You will likely suffer from a swollen and sore stomach for several days, with medicines being prescribed to help deal with the pain during this period. After two to four weeks, you can return to some normal activities, however, on average, six weeks of rest is required. As it is laparoscopic surgery, less time is required to recover and scars are small which fade away over time.
The following are some points to consider after leaving the hospital:
The success rate of Gastric Sleeve is approximately 80% to 90%. You can expect to lose 60% of your excess weight within 12 to 18 months post-surgery. Furthermore, numerous large clinical trials and studies have proven that the surgery improves or resolves obesity-related health problems, such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, and sleep apnea.
While Gastric Sleeve is an overall safe bariatric surgical procedure with high success rates, complications may still occur during and after the surgery. Some of the main risks of the procedures are bleeding, blood clots, heartburn, weight regain, vitamin or nutrient deficiency, and stenosis.
The following are some non-surgical or minimally invasive alternatives to gastric sleeve surgery:
1. Gastric Band - Considered a reversible Bariatric Surgery option, a silicone device is fitted at the top portion of the stomach, cutting off the bottom section and creating a small stomach pouch above. The reduced stomach size now means the volume of food consumed is much smaller before the patient becomes full, thus resulting in rapid weight loss. Once the desired weight is achieved, the band can be surgically removed.
2. Gastric Bypass - The stomach is divided into two parts; a small upper pouch and a large lower ‘remnant’ pouch. The small intestine is rearranged accordingly, bypassing the large pouch and thus significantly reducing the volume of the stomach.
3. Gastric Balloon - This non-invasive procedure does not involve surgery and instead an inflatable balloon-like device is endoscopically placed into the stomach and inflated, thus reducing the capacity of the stomach. with the balloon occupying most of the stomachs volume, the patient becomes full much quicker, leading to rapid weight loss. Once the desired weight is achieved, the balloon is deflated and removed.
