The surgeons saved my life due to their knowledge and experience

5 50 Gastric Bypass • Paid: ₺197963

I had my mini gastric bypass in April but unfortunately had some complications. The many many pre-op assessments didn't show anything was wrong. The surgeons saved my life due to their knowledge and experience.

This hospital is the most amazing place. It is spotlessly clean with well-trained staff. The nurses attended me every time I needed and they couldn't do enough to ensure I was comfortable. The surgeons came to see me every day and check my health and encourage me when I was down.

My husband was with me and he was fed 3 meals a day without fail and he had a comfortable bed beside me. I cannot recommend this hospital enough. I can assure you will get the best treatment from all the staff from surgeons to auxiliary staff. I will definitely be choosing this hospital for skin surgery.

Treated by: Murat Ustun

Dear Christine, I’d like to thank you for your sincere review and opinions. And I’m glad that you choose us for your battle with obesity and lifelong journey. We will be always at your service for your needs. On behalf of me and my whole team, warm regards. Dr Murat Ustun

Overall it was a very pleasant experience

5 50 Gastrectomy

I've had Sleeve gastrectomy operations in November 2021. My surgeon name was Dr Murat Üstün and his team Istanbul Bariatrics was absolutely amazing. Demet is the patient coordinator and she is absolutely great. I was talking to her for over a year. It took me such a long time to decide to have this operation. She was patiently answering any of my questions. I am so grateful for that. Special thanks to Demet. My operation day everything went so smoothly and I was out of hospital within 2.5 days .

Melis was our patient coordinator. She was absolutely amazing. Melis welcomed us in front of the hospital and took us to our room. She answered any questions patiently. She was over the phone anytime you needed and reply your text immediately. Overall it was a very pleasant experience. I would like to thank you guys all. I would highly recommend Istanbul Bariatrics to anyone who is desperate to lose weight.

Gastric Bypass

I had a gastric bypass due to weight and acid reflux issues. From the first email I sent I was taken care of in the most well mannered and prompt timing. Everyone went out of their way to accommodate me and help me with translations. The hospital was beautiful and I felt very well taken care of. The doctors were very helpful in explaining everything to me. The greeting staff went over and above their duties. I really had a wonderful experience that was a very good value for the price it cost. I would definitely recommend this clinic to anyone.

Dear Pamela, Thank you for your kind review. We are glad to hear that your experience was straightforward and you are happy with us. We will always be with you all along your amazing journey. Welcome to our family. All the best

From the first day, I believed that we will make it

5 50 Paid: ₺193599

I am grateful for everything you have provided and to recommend Istanbul Bariatric Center to everyone who have a problem with obesity.
Special thanks to Dr.Murat Ustun which was my first link and who has my support for all my confusions about this kind of revision obesity surgery.
From the first day, I believed that we will make it! When I came to Turkey with my escort, miss Ella and Mellisa were available for everything I need (in the hospital and all other organisations through my stay in Istanbul).

Arrival to the great hospital and hotel and all other great things in Istanbul and all activities were in the hands of Istanbul Bariatric Center. The operation was performed by doctor Bora Koç and special thanks goes for him and his team who made that the man of 197 kg (very risky surgery) after four hours from the operation stand on his legs and walk! After two days I went home. One more time I wish to thank everyone who was included and I am grateful for being a part of this big family!

Treated by: Bora Koc

Dear Kenan, Your story would be a guide and light of hope for every patient, who achieved a success with Bariatric surgery then gained weight. Obesity is a chronic disease and we couldn’t give up to fight with. I congragulate you for your perseverence and we are happy to have you in our family.

Constantly checked up on me, answered any questions or issues I had and went through everything

5 50 Gastric Bypass

I recently had mini gastric bypass surgery as I have been struggling to lose weight. A friend of mine who had the surgery previously with Dr Murat had amazing results.

It is definitely good value for money! It is a super clean environment and you have a whole room to yourself which makes you feel like you not at the hospital. Before the surgery, all the necessary tests were carried out to check if everything was okay and continue with the surgery. There was no language barrier which is important. I can’t wait to record photos of my results!

Dr Murat's team made my journey super easy and comfortable I cannot recommend Istanbul Bariatric Center enough!

The team were amazing from arriving in Istanbul and till the very end.
I would like to say a special thank you to Ella and Melissa who organised everything and constantly checked up on me, answered any questions or issues I had and went through everything - they are super loving, professional and welcoming.

The whole experience was amazing

5 50 DHI - Direct Hair Implantation, Gastric Bypass

On our 21. Wedding anniversary my husband and I went to Istanbul and then due to covid we had to travelled further to Antalya everything was organised by IBC the best service and care was given to us from airport pick up to hospital service IBC has team members who speak fluently English and German which again was outstanding for communication. I had SASI Bypass and my husband DHI Hair implant.

Upon arriving in the Hospital firstly Covid test where done and then bloods taken, next day I saw 7 or more Doctors and several scan and x-Rays were done before surgery. Internist, Dietitian, Cardiologist, Anaesthetist, Psychologist, Radiologist, to name a few which I never thought that in Turkey they would to so thoroughly tests before the bypass. When every Dr. gave their green light the last big test was done under anaesthesia which was the gastroscopy, after this test the surgery was done on the same day. My Surgery took 2,5 h upon waking I was immediately helped by the German-speaking staff who made me comfy. All the hospital staff were very helpful and polite all the time.

The PO aftercare was amazing I was given a lot of fluid via IV which helped my quick recovery. When I woke up I was looking for drainage and found that Dr Murat doesn’t use them as he is so professional!! Again what a relive!! Dr Murat came every day to check on both of us. And ensuring that everything was fine. Dr Murat is a very helpful and great surgeon he did so small incisions and so neatly stitched.

I contacted many people when I started my research I was immediately impressed by Dr Murat as he offered me a Zoom meeting where I could see him and ask him everything I wanted to know, Dr Murat not only agreed with my choice of Surgery he was surprised that I knew about this method and said that it is a very successful but expensive bariatric surgery. Dr. Murat never tried to convince me of performing a different method of surgery which I liked. He also sends me an article to read about SASI. When we moved to a most beautiful hotel with an amazing beach view, made my recovery even better. Whenever he saw me or my Husband he would come up to us and ask how we are doing, if everything is fine. I was checked 4 times after surgery even the day before we flew back. I highly recommended IBC, if you ever consider having surgery done then this is where you go without a second thought, I know how unsure I was, but the whole experience was amazing!! And I love Antalya now!!

Today we are 4 weeks Post OP struggling a bit, with my purred stage but slowly getting there. My husbands head is still sore, but he has a lot of hair now,)) The surgery was on the 24.04.2021

Thanks a million, Dr Murat and everyone involved!!
