They are very well structured and regimental in all your care before and after

5 50 Gastric Bypass

Outstanding treatment from Transfers to surgery.
Around the clock care. Prof Bora Koc is a ver thorough bubbly character who is dedicated to his work and his team. They are very well structured and regimental in all your care before and after. The only downside is the food after so maybe take some protein shake in with you.

The personal and the doctor was very good and all the care was perfect

5 50 Gastric Sleeve

I had a gastric sleeve operation on the 8th of November 2018. The personal and the doctor was very good and all the care was perfect! I was never nervous. And it was a good value for the money! I found the clinic here at whatclinic. I highly recommend this.

Fantastic care, the surgeon was great and put us all at ease

4 50 Gastric Sleeve

We arrived in Istanbul on Monday 10th, had all a pre-op tests done on Tuesday, surgery on Wednesday. Fantastic care, the surgeon was great and put us all at ease. My daughter and granddaughter were getting it done with me and we are all delighted with results, we were able to shower, walk, to be honest, felt so well I had to remember I had surgery. No pain, just a little cramp now and again but not for long, delighted I went ahead with it. If there was any improvement for English clients could I suggest maybe better internet connection information in rooms as we had to constantly go to reception for them to connect us and I think they were getting fed up with us, maybe more English channels on TV would really help as the days can belong? An English speaking person on the floor would be great, although the staff were fantastic and really friendly.
There was a breakdown in communication. Hope this helps if you are going to aim at the UK/Ireland market.

The care received was 10 star and the results are amazing

5 50 Gastric Sleeve • Paid: 23754 ₺

Soooo happy I chose Obesity Academy for my procedure. I had revisional surgery from gastric band to the gastric sleeve with loop/transit bipartition. From start to finish Fatih was helpful, professional and accommodating. Dr Bora Koc and his team made me so comfortable, the hospital was nothing short of luxurious. I went on my own to another country for life-changing surgery which was daunting by itself but I will never regret my decision. The care received was 10 star and the results are amazing. Thank you thank you thank you!

This has been life-changing for me already

5 50 Gastric Sleeve • Paid: 21774 ₺

I travelled to Istanbul from England in May 2019 to have the gastric sleeve. From the off, Fatih was very graceful in accepting my sudden (and early morning) request to attend the clinic on short notice. I had given serious thought to bariatric surgery for over a year, but in the end, it was a quick decision to get it done, and before I knew it flights were booked and I was away! I chose this clinic because of the great price and the great review's, and I was not disappointed.

The hotel was very nice, the clinic is clean and I felt well cared for during my stay. I travelled alone but did not feel at risk at any time. Fatih drove me from place to place and I really enjoyed his company. I had tests at the clinic first and the operation the next day. The operation went as planned, I was made comfortable afterwards and well cared for by the nurses. There were daily visits from the surgeons, both morning and evening.

I would advise that you take someone with you for the company as you are far from home. That is the only thing I would change, but this is no reflection on the clinic. However I did it, and although I was homesick before I knew it, I was flying back to the UK.

The results have been fantastic, I have lost two and a half stone already, which averages over 2 pounds a week, which I'm very happy with. My relationship with food has positively changed completely.

I worked through the psychological problems in the very beginning (the liquid stage) with the help of advice forums, and never losing sight of why I had the operation in the first place and was soon over this phase, and with a new outlook regarding food. Plus the dietician was on hand on WhatsApp to offer advice and support.
I highly recommend Dr Koc as a surgeon, I had zero complications and he is a great professional. I highly recommend the clinic and the staff. This has been life-changing for me already. If I had to do it all again I would not hesitate. Thank you so much!

They were all really caring and would help you with anything you needed

4 50 Bariatric Surgery Consultation • Paid: 27713 ₺

I came from England for a gastric bypass, the Coordinator Fatih greets you at the airport and takes you to the hotel where you stay for 2 nights, then you are taken to the hospital for tests and the following day surgery. The hospital is very clean and tidy, I took a companion with me and there was a bed for her and her meals/drinks were included in the price.

Dr Bora was very professional and would explain everything in detail. There were 3 female nurses on duty when I stayed, they were all really caring and would help you with anything you needed although none of them spoke any English so it was difficult to translate at times.

Overall, I would recommend this hospital and have already lost 13 pounds in 4 days.

They put me at ease and everything went so smoothly

5 50 Gastric Sleeve

I can not fault the bariatric clinic and Dr Bora Koc at Kolan International Hospital. I flew from England to get a gastric sleeve. The staff were all extremely through and the care was of a far higher standard than anything I have received in England. Fatih Ozturk was a great translator and constant support as I travelled alone. The hospital was spotless and I was given a lovely suit within the clinic.

They put me at ease and everything went so smoothly. I can't thank them enough. I can highly recommend them. 5 *

I can’t thank them enough for making my surgery a reality

5 50 Gastric Sleeve • Paid: 27571 ₺

I very recently had the gastric sleeve with transit bi-partition surgery (2 weeks ago) in Turkey. Fatih was exceptional in helping me plan my surgery — providing me with all the details necessary to make my decision for when we arrived in Turkey, to assist and take us where we needed to go.

He was kind enough to take us to the hospital to meet with Dr Koç and then back to the hotel where we opted to stay prior to the surgery and back again the day of my pre-surgical tests.

From the very first moment, I was impressed with the facilities, the staff, the nurses, and the doctors. The Kolan Hospital is a 5-star facility that was beyond my expectations. We were provided with a private room so that my husband could stay with me. They provided him with 3 meals a day.

Meanwhile, I was taken care of by the best team for the full 5 days I was there. Dr Koç, Dr Mehdi, Zeynep who took me all over the hospital for my pre-surgical tests, all the nurses but particularly Banu, Mehmet, Asli, Simge, Dr Koç’s assistants and coordinators Selin and Yelda, the dietician Merve!

I can’t thank them enough for making my surgery a reality and for making the whole experience absolutely pleasant.

I would highly recommend having your surgery with Dr Koç - you will not regret it.

Everything went smoothly and without any pain

5 50 Bariatric Surgery Consultation

We were three myself, my wife and my son. We had this procedure. The first day after the surgery was tough, but the staff is well trained and very professional.

After that, everything went smoothly and without any pain. The nurses were nice and so cheerful. Every day the surgeon visited us with the interpreter who was so kind and helpful too.

I highly recommend this clinic to those who suffer from obesity. We three tried all the types of diet but in vain. We lost around 12 kg during the first week only.

All staff were very good and always willing to go above and beyond to help

5 50 Gastric Sleeve

I had Gastric Sleeve by genius man and very attentive. All staff were very good and always willing to go above and beyond to help. Pain relief was always available without any problems.

My journey from start to finish was coordinated by Fatih who’s very trustworthy and keeps to his word. Very very professional people. I’ll be going back for cosmetic surgery in the future.

The clinic was very well equipped with all the medical stuff. Very high cleanliness standards my room was cleaned several times a day. I have no issues what so ever and I recommend this Hospital 1000%.

I’m quite happy with the price I paid for the surgery, and I’ve lost quite a bit of weight already

4 50 Gastric Bypass

I had a gastric bypass done on the 23rd of December. Due to some unfortunate complications (like internal bleeding), I needed another operation the following day. I’m still recovering now.

Some days I feel really nauseous, especially when I eat something heavier than I’m supposed to. I’m fine right now, but it’s taking some time for me to adjust to this new lifestyle. I’m quite happy with the price I paid for the surgery, and I’ve lost quite a bit of weight already. A surgery like this is quite a process, but I’ll be patient.

The best part was the friendly personnel; they were all so helpful

4 50 Gastric Sleeve • Paid: 27713 ₺

I chose this clinic because they were top of the list on the WhatClinic site and also because I know somebody who’s been here before. There were no additional charges and I paid the exact price they quoted me for the gastric sleeve surgery. It was worth the money.

The area it was situated in, wasn’t very impressive, but the clinic inside was really nice - everything was neat and clean. The best part was the friendly personnel; they were all so helpful. The coordinator Fatih Öztürk is very friendly & accommodating, he keeps in touch afterward and is definitely a credit to the hospital. I've had other surgeries since, in other hospitals, helped by Fatih, I almost consider him a friend now.

The staff are very kind and helpful

5 50 Gastric Sleeve • Paid: 30083 ₺

I had VSG (vertical sleeve gastrectomy) performed on July 27th. It went even better and with less pain than what I anticipated. The doctors were very kind and went into a lot of detail when answering all of my questions. The staff are very kind and helpful, and the only real negative thing I can say is that hardly anybody speaks English, which makes for a great language barrier. However, you can always use google translator to communicate, all of the nurses are very sweet and gentle and keen on communicating with you this way.

Overall, I was initially really worried because I visited the hospital alone, for me it was a travel to another country plus a surgery, but the staff are really great professionals, they made me feel safe and reassured me by answering any and all questions I had and I got a lot of those. Fatih Ozturk is the person I want to specifically mention. He was kind and helpful beyond words. He was there for me at a time when I felt alone (because I was) and down, he made sure to get my mind off of these negative feelings and thoughts, and helped me really focus on my recovery and health.

To all of those who consider travelling for this or any type of surgery, I would recommend that you travel with a companion as the stress surrounding the surgery really gets to you at one point.

I chose this hospital because of the reviews here. The hospital is clean, hygiene is at a very high level, the doctors that treated me, the nurses and the staff, in general, are very sweet, they always smile and are ready to answer any questions you might have. The only little issue is the language barrier, but it can be bypassed by using google translator.
