TURKEY MEDICAL TOURISM

Turkey geographically lies between Asia and Europe, and is commonly referred to as an Eurasian country. It borders four different seas and eight countries: Bulgaria, Greece, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Iraq, and Syria.Coupled with its rich history, Turkey’s culture is a unique tapestry that blends both the East and the West. In recent years, Turkey has integrated itself into the West through such organisations as NATO, the Council of Europe, and the G-20; and it has been trying to gain membership into the European Union (EU). Due to its advanced economy and infrastructure, Turkey is classified as both a developed country (like the U.S. and Western Europe) and a regional power. It is also more secular than other countries in the region, and in major cities it is common to see women wearing abayas (a black over garment worn by some Islamic women) with niqabs (a face veil that covers everything but the eyes) or miniskirts, in which both are acceptable attire.
TURKEY MEDICAL TOURISM FAME
The Joint Commission International has accredited 32 hospitals in Turkey; mostly located in Istanbul, however, there are some in Bursa (northwest, near Istanbul), Ankara (central northwest), Antalya (southwest), Izmir (west), Adana (south central), and Kocaeli (east of Istanbul). Turkey is set to join the European Union (EU) and, with that membership, its hospitals are held to the same standards as those in other EU countries. On top of its impressive accreditation credentials, some hospitals have partnerships with top American hospitals such as Harvard Medical Center and Johns Hopkins, and are staffed with many highly skilled, English speaking, and western trained doctors. Also, many hospitals offer 5 star accommodations for patients and their families.
The most popular procedures sought by medical tourists are cosmetic surgery and dental treatment.However, Turkey offers top-notch medical care in cardiology, ophthalmology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, rheumatology, nephrology, oncology, neurology, dermatology, gynecology/obstetrics, orthopedics, organ transplantation, and otolaryngology (ear, nose & throat).
The official language of Turkey is Turkish, but Kurdish is also widely spoken. English is understood in many private hospitals that cater to medical tourists. You don’t have to worry about the languages because ReGen Clinic will be always with you in Turkey.
The coastal areas of Turkey are subject to mild winters and hot summers, while the inland areas can be cold in the winter and hot summers. The eastern part of Turkey has more extreme temperatures with snow from December to April, and hot summers. Unlike the eastern region, the coastal region (including Istanbul) is subject to more pleasant temperatures with average high temperatures in the mid 80’soF (about 29oC).

Turkey’s vast terrain and blend of cultures make sightseeing an experience! From religious and secular architecture to ecotourism, Turkey has it all. The Yerebatan Basilica Cistern is Istanbul’s largest underground cistern and is a remnant of the Roman Empire. Hagia Sophia is an edifice that is a blend of Islam and Christianity. It was built in 537 AD and used as a church for almost 1000 years before it was converted into a Mosque. The Blue Mosque is the only mosque in the world with six minarets (tall spires with onion-shaped crowns). However, if you prefer seeing the living spaces of royalty over religious architecture then you will not be disappointed. Istanbul is home to many palaces including the Beylerbeyi Palace and the Topkapi Palace.
Boutiques, Turkish bazaars, and open-air markets are everywhere, and the most popular items to purchase at these places are carpet, brass, copper, jewelry, nazarbonjuks (evil eye beads), leather, silk, alabaster, antiques, faience (colored tile), and kilims (woven mats). You can find most of these goods throughout Turkey. Indeed Istanbul has the most shopping venues. Istanbul is also the center of the leather trade and is the location of the Grand Covered Bazaar, which is the most famous place for shopping in Turkey. Misir Carsisi (The Egyptian Spice Bazaar) is the second largest covered bazaar in the city. As the name implies, you can find spices and medicines there as well as t-shirts and other goods. For silk, a trip to Bursa is a must because the city has been the center of the silk trade for hundreds of years.
NIGHTLIFE AND THE ARTS
Due to its economic prosperity and growth, Turkish nightlife has become one of the liveliest in Europe. There are rave and Techno nightclubs as well as traditional Turkish venues such as meyhanes, which are taverns that serve beer, wine, mezes (starters), and raki (liquor). The most famous meyhanes are located in the Cicek Pasaj in Beyoglu, Istanbul. Birahanes are similar to meyhanes but beer takes precedence over food. Other distinctly Turkish (or Middle Eastern) venues include Saz bars, which feature live Anatolian folk music and a dance floor where you can join in on a simple folk dance called the halay. There are also shows that feature belly dancers, Russian and Romanian dancers, and cabaret singers. These bars and clubs are frequented by the young and upwardly mobile.
Istanbul has a lot of ancient history that can be enjoyed at the local museums. The Archaeological Museum is home to the sarcophagus of Alexander the Great, and The Asiyan Museum is a must for lovers of poetry. There is a Calligraphy Museum, a Modern Arts Museum, a Fine Arts Museum, an Islamic Sciences & Technology History Museum, and even a Toy Museum.
