MediGence helped me undergo this life saving critical surgery successfully and ensured that I receive the best treatment in the process.

Mr Abdi Ali Osman, 50, a Somalian national was diagnosed with a critical large tumour on his lung. The tumour was pressing his heart and was causing continuous cough which worsened every day. Mr Abdi Ali Osman wanted the best treatment option made available to him hence searched the internet.

Mr Abdi Ali Osman decided that the best treatment for him would be available abroad and decided to pursue overseas surgery options. He came across MediGence and contacted us by sending in an enquiry form.

Our case manager requested Mr Osman to share all his medical records, scans and reports to come up with the best expert options. Mr Abdi Ali Osman was provided with multiple experts and destinations all providing quality and affordable healthcare. Mr Abdi Ali Osman chose the trusted Medicana Camlica Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey under the expert oncologist Dr Cuneyt Aydemir.

Mr Abdi Ali Osman arrived in Turkey on the 15th of August and was received by the hospital staff at the airport. Mr Osman was accompanied by his two sons as his attenders. He was transferred to Medicana Camlica Hospital where he underwent a series of tests and consultations. Based on the reports and scans the doctor mapped out his treatment plan effectively and decided to perform Right Lung Resection. Since the tumour was pressing on his heart, the surgery was complicated and involved high risk. Under the expertise of Dr Aydemir, he was constantly monitored both pre and post-surgery. The staffs at the prestigious Medicana Camlica Hospital were well trained and had the expertise to handle such a complicated case.

Dr Cuneyt Aydemir successfully performed a Right Lung Resection and removed the large tumour on his lung. The continuous cough also subsided after a few days after the tumour removal thus indicating his improvement and recovery. His hospital stay lasted for 10 days after the surgery during which he was provided round the clock quality healthcare by the hospital staffs.

Mr Osman who stayed in the hospital for 10 days, after consultations and continuous monitoring were discharged from the hospital. MediGence provided with many staying options in the country and the patient chose the best according to his budget. The stay in the country helped him in ensuring his post-op checkups. Dr Aydemir provided the best care and always ensured that the patient was comfortable.
