TÜRKİYE'DE SAĞLIK TURİZMİ

Günümüzde, daha kaliteli sağlık hizmetini, daha uygun fiyatlarla ve daha kısa bekleme süreleri içerisinde almak amacıyla sağlık turizmi kapsamında ülkeleri dışına çıkan yıllık 30 milyon insan trafiğinden söz edilmektedir. Dünyadaki sağlık turizmi harcamaları ise yaklaşık 500 Milyar Dolar ile ifade edilmektedir. Bu rakamın 2023 yılında 1 trilyon dolara ulaşacağı tahmin edilmektedir.

Ülkemiz özellikle son yıllarda, Sağlıkta Dönüşüm Programı ile ulaştığı kaliteli sağlık hizmeti sunumu sayesinde, hem kendi vatandaşlarımıza hak ettiği kaliteli sağlık hizmetini sunmakta, hem de hızla gelişen sağlık turizmi potansiyeli ile dünyada en çok tercih edilen ülkeler arasında üst sıralara yükselmektedir. Amacımız öncelikle yakın komşuluğumuzdaki bölge ülkeleri olmak üzere, tüm dünyada kaliteli, hızlı, etkin sağlık hizmeti almak isteyenlerin taleplerini en başarılı şekilde karşılamaktır. Hedefimiz sağlık turizmi alanında en çok tercih edilen ülkeler arasında ilk iki sıraya yükselerek, 2023 yılında 20 Milyar dolar yıllık sağlık turizmi geliri elde etmektir.

Ülkemiz 4 saatlik uçuş mesafesinde yaklaşık 1 milyar insana ve 57 ülkeye hitap eden önemli bir jeografik konuma sahiptir. Türkiye, Türk Hava Yolları gibi dünya da en çok noktaya (120 ülke, 299 şehir ve 302 havalimanı) uçuş yapan bir ulusal havayolu markası ile ulaşım kolaylığı sayesinde sağlık turizmi için en ideal bölge olarak değerlendirilmektedir.

Özellikle hekimlik kadrolarında üst düzey uzmanlaşmış nitelikli insan kaynağı yanı sıra coğrafi yapısı, mevsimsel avantajları, kaliteli sağlık hizmeti sunumu, dünya standartlarında teknolojik ve tıbbi donanımı, Avrupa’ya kıyasla %60’lara varan uygun fiyat avantajı, dünyada ilk sıralarda yer alan termal yeraltı kaynakları,  dünyada hızla artan yaşlı nüfusa nazaran genç ve dinamik nüfusu ve tüm bunlara ek olarak geleneksel Türk konukseverliği ile dünyada parlayan yıldız konumunda olan Türkiye’nin, sağlık turizminde de en çok tercih edilen ülkelerinden birisi olmasının önünde hiçbir engel yoktur.

Ülkemizde JCI tarafından akredite edilmiş Avrupa Standartlarında hizmet sunan 48 adet sağlık tesisimiz bulunmaktadır. Ancak bu alanda en üst düzeyde kaliteli sağlık hizmeti veren, Bakanlığımız denetimindeki özel ve kamu tesislerinin sayısı bundan çok daha fazlasıdır. Bu yıl hizmet sunmaya başlayan Şehir Hastaneleri de ülkemizin sağlık turizminden aldığı payın artışında çok önemli katkılar sağlayacaktır.

Ülkemize sağlık turizmi ve turistin sağlığı kapsamında gelen hastaların sağlık hizmetine kolay ulaşmalarını sağlamak amacıyla Uluslararası Hasta Destek Birimi Tercümanlık ve Çağrı Merkezi (UHDB) 0 850 288 38 38 çağrı numarasıyla Almanca, Arapça, İngilizce, Rusça, Farsça, Fransızca olmak üzere 6 (altı) dilde 7 gün 24 saat hizmet vermektedir.

Türkiye jeotermal kaynaklar açısından Dünya çapında bir potansiyele sahip olup, Avrupa’da kaynak potansiyeli açısından birinci, kaplıca uygulamaları konusunda ise üçüncü sırada bulunmaktadır. Termal su potansiyelinin yüksek mineralizasyon içeriği sayesinde etkin tedavi edici özelliklere sahip olması ile birlikte zengin kültürel, doğal ve iklimsel özelliklerle birleşmesi termal sağlık turizmi yanı sıra ileri yaş turizmi ve wellness ortamının oluşmasını sağlamaktadır

RHINOPLASTY
What is Nose Aesthetics (Rhinoplasty)? To Whom It Can Be Done?
Nose aesthetics, or rhinoplasty, is the name given to surgical operations performed to change the shape of the nose. It can also be performed to correct the deviations in the septum (septorhinoplasty).
How is Nose Aesthetics Performed?
Rhinoplasty can change the bone, cartilage tissue, skin layer or all three, as deemed necessary. When planning rhinoplasty, the rhinoplasty surgeon will consider other features of the individual's face, the skin in the nose, and what the individual wants to change. He will develop a personalized plan for the candidates who are considered suitable for nose surgery.
As with all major surgeries, rhinoplasty carries various risks. Risks of infection, bleeding, and an adverse reaction to anesthesia are always present in major surgeries.
There are also separate risks specific to rhinoplasty. These include difficulty in breathing through the nose, permanent numbness in and around the nose, uneven nose, pain, discoloration or permanent swelling, scarring, septum perforation, and the need for additional surgical intervention.
Detailed information about these risks is conveyed by the rhinoplasty surgeon to individuals considering the rhinoplasty phase. Before proceeding to the planning stage of rhinoplasty, an interview is held between the doctor and the individual considering the rhinoplasty stage to determine whether the surgical operation will be effective.
During this process, the doctor will perform a complete physical exam, including laboratory tests such as blood tests. He will also examine the facial features of the rhinoplasty candidate and the inside and outside of his nose.
In this way, it is possible to determine what changes need to be made and how physical characteristics such as skin thickness or cartilage strength at the tip of the nose can affect the results. Physical examination is also important to determine the effect of rhinoplasty on breathing.
Photographs of the nose can be taken and images can be manipulated by the surgeon with computer aid to show what results are possible. The rhinoplasty surgeon will also use these photos for before and after evaluations, during surgery and for long-term reviews with reference.
It is possible to leave the hospital, usually 1 day after nose surgery. Edema and bruising usually start on the first day, but reach the maximum on the 3rd day and decrease to acceptable levels in the 1st week.
What are the techniques used in rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty surgeries are operations performed under general anesthesia and can take about 3-4 hours.
It can be performed as an open technique or a closed technique, depending on the medical condition of the patients. In the open technique, the incision is made from the anterior part of the nose, while in the closed technique, the surgery is performed with incisions made entirely through the nose.
Ultrasonic bone shaping devices (piezoelectric) are used in the reshaping stage (Osteotomy) of the nasal bones. With this device, while the bone is being cut, the tissues under the bone are protected, providing a more comfortable post-operative process with less bleeding, less bruising and less edema.
While shaping the external appearance of the nose, deviations in the nasal septum are corrected simultaneously.
After Nose Surgery
After the operation, a nasal silicone splint is placed inside the nose, and a thermal splint is placed on the nasal dorsum after taping. After an average of 5-7 days, the inner and outer nasal packings are removed and re-taping is performed. If it has been operated with the open technique, the sutures at the tip of the nose are removed at this time.
Recovery Period After Rhinoplasty
The recovery period of patients who have undergone nose surgery may vary from person to person. It can change within a week to 2 months after the nose operation. The full fit of the aesthetic nose varies between 6 months and 1 year.

EXPERIENCE

I have performed many surgeries in the field of rhinology, especially septorhinoplasty and endoscopic sinus surgery.
According to the medical needs of our patients, we can use Open technique or closed technique rhinoplasty and Structural or Preseravation Rhinoplasty techniques.
By using Ultrasonic (Piezoelectric) Rhinoplasty techniques, we make the Rhinoplasty process more comfortable with less edema and bruising.
With endoscopic sinus surgery, we can perform surgical operations such as endoscopic septoplasty, turbinate surgeries, nasal polyp excision, tumor excision etc..
