Thalassemia treatment in Turkey has shown notable success over the years. The condition, commonly known as Mediterranean anemia, is a genetic blood disorder affecting hemoglobin production in red blood cells, crucial for oxygen transport in the body.

There is no permanent cure for thalassemia; however, the approaches employed in Turkey contribute significantly to managing the disease and alleviating its symptoms, ultimately enhancing the patient's overall quality of life.

Why do people choose Turkey for thalassemia treatment?

Turkish clinics are trusted by both local residents and international patients for thalassemia treatment. The high prevalence of thalassemia cases in Turkey contributes to the success of treatments provided by these clinics.

Thalassemia is widespread in Turkey, leading to a significant number of cases. However, clinics in the country have effectively treated these cases, achieving notable success rates.

International patients opt for thalassemia treatment in Turkey for various reasons. These include cost-effectiveness, increased chances of finding a donor, top-notch medical care, easy access to renowned doctors, minimal waiting times, and more.

Given these benefits, choosing Turkey for thalassemia treatment is a logical decision. The treatment cost of thalassemia in Turkey is 50-60% lower than in other countries, while the success rate remains impressively high.

Thousands of thalassemia patients treated with bone marrow transplant in Turkey

Bone marrow transplant is the sole cure for thalassemia worldwide. Numerous patients with thalassemia in Turkey have undergone successful treatment through this method.

A-Medical recommends and facilitates bone marrow transplants in JCI accredited clinics. This method has demonstrated remarkable success, benefiting thousands of thalassemia patients.

How bone marrow transplantation works for thalassemia

Blood cells form in the bone marrow from stem cells. Individuals with thalassemia generate insufficient functional red blood cells, leading to reduced oxygen intake by the body.

The primary and most effective remedy for thalassemia is a bone marrow transplant. Once the donor's bone marrow is introduced into your body, it triggers the production of healthier blood cells in your own marrow.

Despite being a beneficial treatment, bone marrow transplantation carries potential life-threatening complications and is typically reserved for individuals with severe illnesses.

In allogeneic transplantation, one replaces their own bone marrow stem cells with those from a donor. The donor is typically a close genetic match, like a sibling or parent, although it can also be an unfamiliar individual.

Effect of treatment and risks

The most effective treatment for thalassemia today is bone marrow transplantation, especially when performed in childhood, yielding the best results.

Success in treating thalassemia through bone marrow transplantation hinges on donor compatibility, with a survival rate ranging from 66% to 99% when the donor is a sibling.

Following bone marrow transplantation, individuals find relief from thalassemia symptoms, leading to an enhanced quality of life.

However, this treatment method carries risks, including:

  • Drop in blood pressure

  • Headache

  • Nausea

  • Pain

  • Shortness of breath

  • Chills

  • Fever

Furthermore, bone marrow transplantation may lead to complications such as:

  • Graft-versus-host disease, where donor cells attack the recipient's body

  • Graft failure, when transplanted cells fail to produce new cells

  • Bleeding in the lungs, brain, and other body parts

  • Cataracts, causing clouding in the eye lens

  • Damage to vital organs

  • Early menopause

  • Anemia, a deficiency in red blood cell production

  • Infections

  • Nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting

  • Mucositis, inflammation, and soreness in the mouth, throat, and stomach

Who is a candidate for the procedure in Turkey?

Eligibility for thalassemia treatment in Turkey through bone marrow transplantation is determined on a case-by-case basis, primarily considering age and the availability of an HLA-identical family donor.

To be eligible, it's crucial to undergo the transplant before experiencing liver enlargement, liver fibrosis, or iron overload.
