An Innovative Model in Health Travel

Turkey is becoming a shining star in medical technologies and state of art treatment in the world. Under the framework of  Sanberk Group and headed by Prof. Dr. Yusuf Kalko, established “DR.KALKO HEALTH CARE SERVICES” brand has been implemented with an innovative model that will open new horizons for the health tourism sector.

We Consider All Details 24/7 For Your Health

We achieved firsts in the medical literature with the stroke surgery method and hybrid methods we applied especially for carotid artery patients. Therefore, we have done what hasn’t been done in the world about vascular surgery and we have taken a very good way in this field. With the Vascular Health and Life Center established under my chairmanship, we gathered departments such as stroke surgery, diabetic foot surgery, varicose veins treatment, congenital vascular anomalies and minimally invasive vascular surgery. We are performing very important vascular surgeries with a giant staff.

Turkey is in a very important position in the field of health tourism in the world. Patient comes for many different branches. We are bringing together patients and the best doctors in Turkey and we aim to provide treatment with the latest and advanced technologies in the best and most equipped hospitals. With the principle of continuous 7/24 service, we have been thinking every detail for the patient satisfaction.

We Have Started With International Standards And Certificates

You want to know whom you entrust your health to in a country you don’t know. You also want to know what your rights are, how they will protect you in a negative situation. With this in mind, we have developed our service plan accordingly. First of all, we have started with an international certificate. We have been implementing insurance which covers from flight delays and cancelations up to surgical complications which the travellers may encounter. We have also international offices in several locations make us liable also in the European countries.
