After consultation with Amy Saracoglu the International Patient Coordinator for VISITANDCARE I made the decision to travel to the Hizmet Memorial Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey for my bi-lateral knee replacement. I arrived at Istanbul Airport 6 hours later than expected due to airline delays and having contacted the hospital earlier, the driver was waiting for me. I was taken to the account desk and after depositing my payment shown to my room. Monitoring started immediately with the surgeon, doctors and nurses. Monday morning I was taken down for my bi-lateral Knee operation then awoke Monday evening in the ICU. The nurses could not have been more helpful. I was returned to my room Tuesday and kept under constant pain management and supervision. During the next 4 days until my discharge on Saturday I was given every care and concern possible by all involved, nothing was left to chance. After being given X-rays, medical reports etc. I checked into my hotel. My trusted hospital driver, who looked after me like a personal valet for my full 12 days in Turkey collected me for return supervisory visits. After 3 weeks since the operation, now back at home, I am capable of walking short distances unaided. I recommend the Memorial Hizmet and all the personnel for the treatment I received highly enough and believe with the advise given to me by (Visit and Care), the Hospital selection , although I am unable to compare with others, was the correct choice and would suggest that any persons requiring any of their available treatments should seriously consider them as an option.

What is Carpal Tunnel Surgery?

Carpal tunnel surgery is a procedure for opening up the wrist and relieving the median nerve of pressure to relieve pain, weakness, and sense disturbance caused by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

 

The wrist contains a sheath of connective tissue that surrounds and protects tendons and nerves, including the median nerve that runs down the length of the arm and forearm. The space between this sheath and the bones is the carpal tunnel.

 

When the median nerve endures excessive pressure, for example, because of fluid retention or swelling of an inflamed tendon it results in a painful condition known as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome often complain of aches, ‘pins and needles’, burning or numbness.

 

A Good Candidate for Carpal Tunnel Surgery

Depending on the severity and length of symptoms, a good candidate for carpal tunnel surgery is one who has had symptoms for 10 or more months. These symptoms include, pain, numbness and tingling.

 

Carpal Tunnel Surgery Procedure

Corrective surgery can be performed by a neurosurgeon or hand surgeon, typically following a treatment of anti-inflammatory drugs which proved to be unsuccessful. Carpal tunnel surgery can be open hand or endoscopic, and involves relieving pressure on the median nerve by cutting the carpal ligament. Carpal tunnel is usually done with a local anesthetic.
