Impressed with the services provided by MediGence. Strongly recommends MediGence to the people who are looking to travel overseas for the surgery.

Mr. James Evans suffered from serious back pain and he was taking pain injections to ease his pain. After the prolonged use of pain injections, they also stopped working. He consulted his Chiropractor in the USA he told him to get the spinal surgery done for his back pain.

Mr. James had a discussion with his family and decided to take the treatment outside the USA as he was not comfortable with the hospitals in the USA. He started looking online and came across MediGence. He contacted us and our case manager contacted him immediately. Our case manager told him to share all his medical reports, scans, and, x-rays.

MediGence helped him with multiple options from Turkey out of which Mr. Evans settled for LIV Hospital under the care of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Selahattin Özyürek. He is one of the best Orthopedics and Traumatology surgeons associated with LIV Hospital having experience of more than 20 years in the field of Orthopedics and Traumatology.

Mr. James arrived in Turkey on 20th Aug and was received by the hospital staff at the airport. On the very same day, he went straight to the hospital for his COVID-19 tests. The next day he came to the hospital for consultations and physical examination. After the consultations, the doctor advised him of pre-op tests which were done on the very same day. The next day doctors counseled him and recommended microdiscectomy surgery for his back pain and planned his admission for the surgery.

His surgery was successfully done and just a few hours after the surgery he was made to walk. After the surgery, he was required to stay in the hospital for 2 days and after discharge, follow-up visits were planned for him in the week to come to see that he is recovering well. He is still in Turkey to finish his follow-up visits and to enjoy Turkey further.

He was very impressed with the services provided by MediGence starting from the very beginning, helping him choose the right hospital, assisting him with the hotel options, responding to his queries, arranging his pick-up, managing his hospital appointments. He strongly recommends MediGence to his friends, family and, others who are looking to travel overseas for the surgery.

Team MediGence wishes him a very happy and healthy future.
