In recent years, the medical tourism industry has been rapidly gaining popularity. Patients are finding that they can receive high-quality medical treatments in foreign countries at a fraction of the cost of the same procedure in their home country. One of the most popular destinations for medical tourism is Turkey. Turkey is known for its excellent medical facilities, experienced doctors, and affordable prices. Additionally, Turkey offers a wealth of tourist attractions, making it an ideal destination for both medical treatments and leisure travel.

One of the most sought-after medical procedures for men is hair transplant surgery. Hair loss can be a distressing experience for many men and hair transplant surgery offers a solution to this problem. Turkey has become a leading destination for hair transplant surgery with thousands of patients traveling to the country every year to undergo the procedure. The combination of high-quality procedures and affordable prices has made Turkey a preferred choice for those seeking hair transplant surgery.

Turkey has invested heavily in its medical tourism industry, with many hospitals and clinics offering state-of-the-art facilities and world-class treatments. The country’s medical professionals are highly qualified, with many having trained in Europe and the United States. Turkey’s medical facilities are accredited by international organizations, ensuring that patients receive the highest standards of care.

Another reason why Turkey has become a premier destination for medical tourism is its affordability. The cost of medical treatments in Turkey is significantly lower than in many Western countries, making it an attractive option for patients seeking quality treatments at a reasonable price. Patients can expect to pay up to 80% less for the same treatment in Turkey than they would in their home country.

In addition to its medical facilities, Turkey is also known for its rich history, diverse culture, and stunning natural scenery. Visitors can enjoy a range of attractions, including ancient ruins, beautiful beaches, and bustling cities. This combination of medical treatments and tourist attractions has made Turkey a popular destination for medical tourists seeking a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

Unfortunately on February 6th, a tremor measuring 6.4 on the Richter scale occurred near the city of Antakya and close to the border with Syria. The earthquakes on February 6th resulted in the loss of 44,000 lives in Turkey and Syria. Additionally, tens of thousands of people have been displaced from their homes. As such, the global community is coming together to provide support to those affected. 

Hasan Süzer, the founder of the Suzermed Clinic, one of Turkey’s top medical facilities attracting medical tourists, is doing all that he can to help his country in this time of need. In addition to sending donations, Süzer and the Suzermed Clinic organized multiple mobile kitchens to be sent to the region. These mobile kitchens have been crucial in providing aid to displaced families and individuals. Around 20,000 three-course meals have been cooked in these kitchens each day since arriving.

Suzermed Clinic is a medical facility that offers services for hair transplant and plastic surgeries. The clinic employs a team of qualified professionals including plastic surgeons, hair transplant specialists, supervisory nurses, paramedics, technicians, interpreters, and support staff. Suzermed Clinic collaborates with Acıbadem Altunizade Hospital, one of Turkey’s top healthcare providers, which has received JCI Accreditation and has more than 60,000 square meters of closed space. Suzermed Clinic is a leading provider of hair transplant services in Turkey, helping power the medical tourism industry. Illustrating his industry-leading work with hair transplants and other procedures, Hasan Süzer was recently awarded as the Best Medical Entrepreneur of 2022 by Diamonds of Turkey.

As one of the world’s leading destinations for hair transplant surgeries, Suzermed Clinic specializes in Direct Hair Transplant (DHI) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).

The DHI (Direct Hair Transplant) method has emerged as an alternative to the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method. Using a Choi Implanter Pen, a team of specialists implants grafts with precision and accuracy, without a separate channel opening session, which reduces edema. The pen is a lightweight and convenient device that originated in South Korea and holds the grafts in place before injecting them into the scalp. This method is preferred due to its efficiency and streamlined approach, making it an attractive option for those seeking hair transplant services

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a surgical technique used to treat baldness by transplanting hair follicles from a genetically resistant area called the “donor site” to the balding area known as the “recipient site.” Using a minimally invasive approach, grafts containing hair follicles are extracted and transplanted to the scalp, restoring hair growth in areas of hair loss. In addition to treating baldness, FUE can be used to restore hair in areas such as eyebrows, eyelashes, beard, chest, and pubic hair. The procedure can also fill in scars from previous surgeries or accidents. 

We are excited to see how Hasan Süzer and the Suzermed Clinic continue to drive the medical tourism industry in Turkey forward. To provide support for those affected by the earthquake, visit this resource.
