Multiple sclerosis is a common autoimmune disorder in humans, occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly attacks itself. This leads to issues such as muscle weakness, balance problems, and speech impairment, affecting the central nervous system. The severity of this chronic disorder varies from person to person.

Turkey is the best and most affordable destination for multiple sclerosis treatment. The country offers budget-friendly, comfortable, and highly successful options for international patients. 

Turkey's clinics have proven success in treating MS disease, elevating patients' quality of life. Renowned doctors utilize advanced methods, contributing significantly to the cure of MS.

This article focuses on MS treatment in Turkey, covering the methods employed, the best clinics and doctors, general information about the disease, and treatment costs.

What is multiple sclerosis?

Multiple sclerosis is a condition caused by the breakdown of the protective sheath around nerve wires in the brain and spinal cord, known as the myelin sheath. This damage results in hardening of myelin tissues, forming sclerosis. These scleroses turn into plaques, which can grow in the nervous system, hindering message transmission along the nerves.

Despite its rarity, multiple sclerosis stands out as one of the most widespread autoimmune disorders worldwide. In 2024, close to 3 million individuals worldwide contend with multiple sclerosis, with Turkey hosting approximately 100,000 cases.

What causes multiple sclerosis?

The exact cause of multiple sclerosis remains uncertain. Some factors believed to contribute to its development include climate, region of residence, viral infections, genetic predisposition, and certain diseases.

Scientists suggest that the higher incidence of MS in northern countries, compared to those near the equator, may be linked to vitamin D deficiency. This connection is based on the lower number of sunny days in the north.

MS is commonly diagnosed between ages 20-40, more often in women. The reason for this gender difference is not yet understood.

What are the symptoms of multiple sclerosis?

The symptoms of MS are varied and differ among patients. The severity, attack frequency, and intervals can vary as well. Two common symptoms include difficulty walking and fatigue.

MS can lead to challenges in walking, increasing the risk of injuries from falls. This difficulty may result from issues like maintaining balance, numbness in legs or feet, muscle weakness, and muscle spasticity.

About 80% of MS patients experience fatigue, which can significantly impact daily life and work. This feeling of tiredness weakens individuals, making it challenging to carry out regular activities.

Other common symptoms of MS:

  • Difficulty maintaining balance

  • Numbness in legs or feet

  • Muscle weakness

  • Muscle spasticity

  • Slurred speech

  • Bladder and bowel issues

  • Dizziness

  • Blurry vision

  • Challenges with thinking, memory, or focus

  • Feelings of depression

Diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in Turkey

Turkish clinics employ advanced imaging devices and diagnostic techniques for early detection of multiple sclerosis (MS). Thanks to immunological monitoring technologies, precise diagnoses in the initial stages of MS are now achievable in Turkey.

In the initial MS diagnosis phase, Turkish doctors conduct physical and neurological examinations, requiring evidence of damage to at least two distinct regions of the central nervous system, such as the spinal cord, brain, and optic nerves.

During the patient's clinical history assessment, pertinent details like birthplace, family and medical history, travel experiences, and environmental exposures are gathered. Tests evaluating strength, balance, coordination, mental, emotional, and language functions, as well as reflexes, walking, vision, and other senses, are conducted.

Turkish experts use the following diagnostic methods to make an accurate diagnosis of MS:

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scan

  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

  • Spinal Tap

  • Blood Tests

  • Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP) Test

  • Analysis of cerebrospinal fluid (lumbar puncture)

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Treatment in Turkey

Turkish clinics offer effective treatments for multiple sclerosis, enhancing the patient's well-being and resilience against MS. These treatments focus on reducing MS attacks, addressing symptoms, safeguarding and restoring nervous system functions, and slowing down the disease's progression.

The key methods employed for MS treatment in Turkey include:

  • Physiotherapy

  • Plasmapheresis

  • Drug treatment

  • Speech therapy correction

  • Psychotherapy

  • Stem cell treatment

  • Deep brain stimulation

MS treatment typically begins with medication, incorporating Immunomodulators, immunosuppressants, and Corticosteroids. Biopolymers and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are also utilized, improving nerve impulse transmission and neuron nourishment.

Innovative Multiple Sclerosis Treatment Methods in Turkey

Two main innovative methods stand out in the treatment of multiple sclerosis in Turkey and provide a high success rate. One of these is deep brain stimulation and the other is stem cell therapy.

Deep Brain Stimulation in for Multiple Sclerosis Treatment in Turkey

Deep Brain Stimulation, a modern approach for conditions like Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, brain tumors, and MS disorders, deactivates specific brain areas without causing permanent damage.

In treating MS, Deep Brain Stimulation doesn't offer a complete cure since it can't eliminate multiple sclerosis. However, it effectively manages symptoms like vision loss, weakness, and severe tremors associated with the condition.

Dr. Ali Zirh, an Associate Professor, conducts the Deep Brain Stimulation procedure to treat MS in Turkey via A-Medical. He has gained global recognition for helping over 1500 patients using this method.

Stem cell treatment

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are adult stem cells located in different body parts like bone marrow, skin, and fatty tissue. They generate cells supporting proper function in other stem cells.

In treating multiple sclerosis, mesenchymal stem cells offer a recent breakthrough. Studies reveal their effectiveness in repairing myelin damage, preventing harm to the protective myelin sheath—the primary cause of the disease. Stem cell therapy not only slows down but also aids in halting the progression of the disease.

Turkey is currently excelling in multiple sclerosis treatment through stem cells, marking significant success in this field.

Benefits of Multiple Sclerosis Treatment in Turkey

Many patients opt for overseas multiple sclerosis treatment, drawn by advantages like high-quality care, direct access to leading doctors, and lower expenses. In the United States, annual treatment costs can soar to $100,000, totaling around $130,000 for diagnosis and treatment. In contrast, Turkey offers an average cost of $16,000, ranging from a minimum of $500 to a maximum of $60,000. It's essential to note that these figures are averages and may fluctuate.
