The hospital was top notch and the nurses and all staff members were absolutely brilliant

5 50 Gastric Bypass

Dr. Murat and his team are absolutely brilliant. They are truly what you call a reliable team that takes care of all the details. I have just finished my Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB) operation with them yesterday, and I now feel 100% amazing. I just have a little bit of painl left from the wounds but I feel great, already walking, drinking water and feel superb.

I have considered this operation in 6 different places: London, Dubai, Cairo, Czech, Istanbul and Lithuania; and after much research I choose to do it in Istanbul with Dr Murat because of how confident I felt towards their professionalism. The hospital was top notch and the nurses and all staff members were absolutely brilliant.

The memorial hospital where I had the surgery was both clean & very well equipped

5 50 Gastric Sleeve • Paid: 37262 ₺

I have just returned from having a gastric sleeve. Although I was terrified of going abroad to have surgery I need not of worried. The memorial hospital where I had the surgery was both clean & very well equipped and the staff professional and caring. The whole team from Istanbul Bariatric Center visited me many times while I was staying in Istanbul and I could contact them day or night. I found it helpful to have a translator app on my phone for the nurses that didn’t speak English so I recommend you do that and also have some Turkish money for a taxi from the hospital to hotel. I highly recommend Istanbul Bariatric centre and wish I had my surgery years go!

The hotel stay was lovely and relaxing, nothing was too much for them

5 50 Bariatric Surgery Consultation

Wonderful from the start, every question answered. I went into surgery confident and happy and had great aftercare. I had revision surgery, it was more expensive but still good value. My hospital stay was comfortable and so clean. The hotel stay was lovely and relaxing, nothing was too much for them.

I chose Sisli memorial hospital to be operated in and Dr. Murat Ustun to perform my surgery after searching for weeks. I contacted many surgeons and questioned them all. I asked about every aspect of surgery.
Dr Ustan was the only Doctor that answered everything and had full knowledge of my previous kidney disease, dialysis, transplant and most importantly my suppressed immune system. 100% recommendation from me. Thank you.

Treated by: Mr Murat USTUN

Dear Annie, Thank you for your kind review and also thanks for choosing us. Bariatric surgery, especially revisional bariatric surgery is extremely delicate issue and requires a very experienced team, very well equipped hospital and multidisciplinary approach. These are vital for transplanted kidney’s survival. We are so happy that your whole journey was safe and successfull. In these extraordinary days we will make online webinars and counseling via internet and you will have all our support for aftercare. Take care yourself and Please be safe :) Greetings from İstanbul Bariatric Center

I felt amazingly well and was doing lots of walking around the room and was amazed

5 50 Gastric Sleeve • Paid: 35375 ₺

I cannot praise this clinic and Dr Murat highly enough. The care I received was first class, the hospital was spotless and state of the art and the hotel we were transferred to was stunning. I arrived on Friday evening and were picked up at the airport and taken to the Memorial Şişli hospital where I met Demet (the coordinator) and all my pre-op tests were done on Saturday morning and I had my surgery on Saturday evening and stayed at the hospital until Tuesday afternoon. My husband was with me and stayed in the room with me and they brought all his meals to him. The first 12 hours after surgery I felt a bit off, not unwell just couldn’t sleep and after that, I felt amazingly well and was doing lots of walking around the room and was amazed at how good I felt. The nurses were very caring but did have a bit of trouble understanding each other but I got a translator app on my phone and that helped with anything that we needed to say. Dr Murat and Demet came in to see me twice a day every day I was at the hospital and I also saw the dietician before I left the hospital to go to the hotel. This has been a much easier experience than I was expecting and have been delighted with how it’s gone and how I feel and I would not hesitate to recommend Istanbul Bariatric Center to everyone.

5 50 Bariatric Surgery Consultation

I had an operation just 3 days ago and I feel very well. I travelled to İstanbul after my op. I couldn't climb before my surgery, now I can do it just after 3 days - it is amazing. My Dr Murat Üstün and his team are the best in their job. Thank you so much for everything my lovely Dr Murat Üstün, his assistant Demetella and all the nurses who took care of me.

I am pain-free and walking around

5 50 Gastric Sleeve

My Gastric Sleeve Surgery in a nutshell.

Travelling to Istanbul from the UK for surgery is a very confusing and daunting thought, however, everything started getting easy once I spoke to Adam over the phone who explained the whole process and arranged a consultation meeting in person with the Surgeon Dr. Murat at Harley Street Clinic in London. Dr. Murat explained in detail the whole surgery procedure and answered all the technical questions (Having aftercare by a London based Doctor was a massive reassurance and a trust builder). After the consultation, I had a Video conference with company Director Demet who explained pre-surgery dietary requirements in detail and explained why I need to follow it.

We arrived at Istanbul Airport in the middle of the night, Demet was constantly in touch with me and guided me. Our transport was waiting for us and took us straight to a very clean and state of the art hospital. The nursing staff immediately scrambled and made me very comfortable, the next morning Surgeon Dr. Yigit visited me to say hello and explained the whole process about the surgery which was again very reassuring. After that I was visited by 2 more doctors who did further pre-surgery checkups, I had an Endoscopy, Ultrasound and X-Rays done. In the afternoon Demet, Dr. Yigit and Dr. Murat visited me and informed me that after all the checks ups and results they were happy with going ahead with the Surgery. Dr. Murat's visit was a surprise as I was not expecting Dr. Murat to join the surgery as well. It was very nerve-calming to know that the top 2 and experienced Surgeons in Turkey will be performing the surgery. I was taken to the operation theatre at 3:30 PM, where I spoke to the anaesthetist and was put to sleep. I woke up around 6:30 PM and was taken to my room where Demet was present throughout the time with my wife to support her. After surgery, I had Nausea and felt a bit rough, Dr. Yigit and Dr.Murat visited me in the evening to check up on me and informed me that the surgery was successful. They reassured me that from the next day I will start feeling a lot better and they were right. The next day my symptoms were reduced to half and felt a lot better. Dr. Yigit and Demet visited me 3 times to check up on me. On the 2nd day, I was a lot better and started walking around. Demet and Dr Yigit kept a close eye on me and made sure I am very well looked after. On the 3rd day, I requested to be taken off Pain killers as I felt much better. I stayed further 2 days at the hospital where I had post OP check-ups and a visit to Dietician with an excellent interpreter Muhammad. The Dietician was very thorough and explained my post-op Diet. During the whole 4 days, Dr Yigit and Demet frequently visited me every day to check on me. On the 5th day, I got discharged from the hospital and transported to a 5 Star hotel. Where we stayed for a further 3 days. On the last day, we were transported to Istanbul Airport from the Hotel. Its been 10 days since my operation and am back in the UK but Demet is always available whenever I need to ask anything. I am pain-free and walking around.

During all these days, Demet was constantly in touch over the phone and in person, helping and guiding us. As she had a Gastric Surgery a couple of years ago, she knew exactly what I was going through and had all the answers. Demet is a genuinely wonderful person and goes out of the way to help her Patients. Dr. Murat and Dr Yigit apart from being excellent Surgeons are very decent human beings, who genuinely care about there patients. The Nursing Staff at the hospital were very caring and helpful.

In the end, I would like to thank from the depth of my heart Dr. Murat, Dr. Yigit, wonderful Demet, Adam, Muhammad, the Nursing staff and other hospital staff for looking after me.

I 100% recommend them for weight loss surgeries and rest assured you will be in safe hands and very well looked after by Professionals.

Beautiful and modern medical facilities

5 50 Bariatric Surgery Consultation

Dr Murat Üstün is not only very professional but also very dedicated to his patients. I visited Dr Üstün in London one week before the surgery scheduled in Istanbul eight days after. He took his time to listen to me and to answer my numerous questions.
I would also like to thank wholeheartedly Demet (Dr Üstün's colleague) who was being very helpful as far as administration and logistics are concerned, and also Merve as far as nutrition issues are concerned.
The Memorial Sisli hospital has beautiful modern medical facilities where to feel comfortable (translaters are even provided up to the operation theater).
Last, the hotel I stayed at both before and after surgery is just perfect: well situated and nothing at all to complain about.
I highly recommend Dr Murat Üstün for bariatric and metabolic surgery.

The whole procedure was smoothly run

5 50 Revisional Bariatric Surgery

I came out to Istanbul for a RnY revision due to issues with loss of satiation although I was still only able to consume limited portion sizes, vomiting after meals, loose stools and abdominal pain after most meals.

My previous surgery was 14 years ago and I had successfully lost 17.5stone, with weight regain of five and a half stone. Of which I had managed to lose two stone through intense daily exercise and restrictive calorie intake.

But all of the other symptoms were still there. After talking to Dr Murat, he knew instantly what my problem was and discussed a candy cane resection, a reduction of the gastric pouch and possible bypass of further bowel.

Within four weeks from initial communication, of which was thorough, with long phone calls with the surgeon himself and instant answers 24 hours a day to any questions I may have had. I was out in Istanbul and having my preoperative assessments on the morning of the surgery.

I was able to arrange my own hotels with the view of a holiday as well as surgery. Although the hotel included in the package was sufficient I wanted luxury and booked the Hilton in Bosphorus. The team were not phased by this and just adapted transfers etc.
The hotel was clean, the rooms were very large and allowed for recovery in peace and pleasant surroundings.

The staff at the hospital do have limited English, so I would recommend a translator on google on your phone which worked for myself a number of times.

The whole procedure was smoothly run, Dr Murat was wonderful, explaining everything clearly and his English is great, this allowed for any queries to be resolved quickly. His team are friendly and professional and have been there every step of the way.

The costing was simple and taken care of without fuss or error.
My actual procedure turned out to be more complicated than expected due to a giant hernia they found on the day, Dr Murat dealt with this with skill and amended the procedure as required, no extra charges etc. Just very precise surgery. I personally work in the medical field myself and I can give nothing but praise for the treatment I was given. My surgical site after four days is perfect. I am up and about and now staying in a wonderful hotel called George's which I'd advise for sightseeing with reduced walking. Very romantic and a treat for my husband after he slept in the room with me at the hospital for three nights on a sofa bed.

I'd definitely advise the services of Dr Murat and his team any day of the week, I feel like my problems have been recognised and approached after many years of eating like a mouse and still gaining weight, whilst having life-altering side effects.

Already my life has improved dramatically

5 50 Gastric Bypass • Paid: 42450 ₺

I had a mini gastric bypass done by Dr Murat Ustan in 12/10/2019, and I was well enough to be discharged on 14/10/2019! The surgery was a success, and I now get to look forward to the weight loss being a huge success. Dr Ustan has saved my life. I was sure that without it, I wouldn’t reach the age of 30 (I am 28 now). Already my life has improved dramatically and I’ll never be able to thank him and his team enough.

The hospital is immaculate, the staff there are attentive and rapidly respond to any issues that may arise (I had a leak in my drain site which meant it was bleeding through my bandage, upon telling the staff they were there within 2 minutes to redress and stop the bleeding). For us Brits, the staff at the hospital do speak some basic English which is enough to get you by during your stay. Dr Ustan and his team, however, speak impeccable English and will resolve any problem or complication immediately. Demet was a god-send to me & my mother and was my first point of contact for anything I needed to know or need assistance with. She would ensure that whatever it was resolved in no time. She even travelled out of her home late at night to see me & resolve a small issue I had at the hotel.

The package price was value for money, a quarter of the price I would have had to pay here in the UK, and the service I received was infinitely better, so all round I made the right decision travelling to Dr Murat & his team in Istanbul.

Thank you so much, to Dr Murat, Demet & Merve, from the bottom of my heart.

I am so much happier now and more energetic than I ever was before

5 50 Gastric Sleeve

I'm Sabrina from Canada and I'm on my 7th day after gastric sleeve surgery here in Istanbul's medical bariatric centre. I'm so thankful to all your staff for taking care of me, medically, mentally, and physically. I feel great, I have no pain. I'm actually on my way back to Canada and I've already lost weight, something I couldn't do before on my own, I was not able to move around or walk much or play with my children, even day to day activities were tough, but now thank god I can and will do all the things I could not do before. I waisted many years but the same day I found out about Istanbul bariatric centre and its popularity and very professional Drs. And the staff, I started my journey. They really saved my life, being overweight didn't only affect me it also affected my whole family and it came with many struggles, depression and desperation at times. I am so much happier now and more energetic than I ever was before. If anyone out there is looking into this type of weightloss surgery. Istanbul bariatric medical centre is where to go and put your trust in. Thank you so much. I love you all - best team ever!

Dear Sabrina, We are more than happy that we could facilitate your weightloss journey. I would like to thank you for your kind review on behalf of İstanbul Bariatric Center Team. We wish you our best. Please keep in touch and inform us about your journey frequently. And please hi to your lovely husband and children. Best regards. Dr Murat

The doctor is amazing - he was so welcoming to me and my husband

4.5 50 Gastric Bypass

I had my mini gastric bypass 13th July and I loved the hotel and hospital. The doctor is amazing - he was so welcoming to me and my husband. I will be having an arm lift surgery which I will be going back next year for more surgeries. The hospital is so clean - the only thing I would say is the language barrier even with google translate some of the nurses didn’t understand but other than that excellent.

Definitely take someone with you though as I had my hubby and it just makes it so much easier. Would recommend can’t wait to see what the next few months hold thanks Dr Murat, Demet and Dr Azzy.

Gastric Sleeve - Istanbul Bariatric Center
Sleeve gastrectomy is technically a procedure involving removal of the large part of the stomach that functions as a reservoir. 

With the procedure, the volume of the stomach that is normally 1.5-2 liters is reduced to 30-150 ml (roughly the size of a banana). It does not involve placement of a foreign body into the abdomen, as in gastric banding surgery. The goal is to reduce the amount of food that can be consumed at a time; however, no intervention is made to the digestive system’s natural mechanism in such a way as to reduce absorption.
