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 Lumbar Laminectomy?

A Lumbar Laminectomy is an orthopedic and neurological surgical operation performed to treat Spinal Stenosis, which is the narrowing of the spinal canal.


During a laminectomy, an incision is made in the lower portion of the back (lumbar), and a portion of bone, called the lamina, is removed from one or more vertebrae, relieving pain and pressure on the nerve roots and the spinal cord caused by Lumbar Stenosis.


A Good Candidate for Lumbar Laminectomy

A surgical advisor will be delighted to help you find a leading expert in Spinal Surgery to consult with. Your surgeon will carry out a thorough evaluation of your condition and provide you with a comprehensive explanation of the most appropriate surgical solution.


Our listed Expert Consultant Orthopaedic and Neuro Surgeons are most carefully selected and recommended because they understand the importance of the decision you are making when contemplating complex spinal surgery and because of their specialist Spinal Surgery expertise. Throughout your consultation you be encouraged to ask as many questions as you wish and to take your time in making a decision to proceed with any recommended treatment.


To ensure that patients are comfortable with any recommendations or advice given in their consultation, all patients are asked to take time and reflect on all the information they have received. If for whatever reason you are still not sure about the best course of action and wish to have further discourse with your surgeon, you will not be expected to pay for a second consultation appointment.


Lumbar Laminectomy Procedure

First, a 2-5 inch long incision is made along the back, the left and right back muscles are disconnected from the lamina on both sides at different levels. Second, the lamina is removed (laminectomy) allowing the nerve roots to be visible. The facet joints, which are directly above the nerve roots, may be trimmed to give the nerve roots more space.
