    Medical fraud in Turkish hospitals?

    My SGK-insured father recently agreed to undergo surgery to correct a problem he had with his vertebrae in Alanya at the private Baskent hospital. The total price for the surgery was less than 3000TL and was paid before the operation. However, something happened during the surgery that supposedly necessitated the installation of two titanium screws at extra cost of around 10000TL.What do you think are the chances that there's some sort of fraud involved instead of a genuine need to save my father's well-being? Just thinking quick it certainly occurred to me that the surgeon may have anticipated such a need before the operation but neglected to inform my father of this as he would not have agreed to such an expensive operation. Of course there are many other possibilities like the lack of any actual need for such costly extras.Do you have any suggestions how one could proceed in this sort of a situation?

    Joint Pain

    I've had knee problems for the last +/-20 years and have had damaged cartilage removed from both knees (almost none left). Forget about the fact that I'm almost a full inch shorter because of it, but I'm in constant pain as a result. I have ibuprofen sent from the US annually (a bottle of 300 pills for 30USD vs 10 pills for 8TL), but i hate taking pills constantly. Plus when i run out I have to rely on someone overseas to go buy it and ship it, then I get to go deal with the customs office (and we all LOVE dealing with customs, don't we?).So here are my questions: does anyone know if cortisone injections for arthritis are available and done (safely) in Turkey? has anyone had or know someone who has had knee replacement surgery here? Are surgical procedures safe here? How much could I expect to pay for either of these procedures here? The cost in the US is prohibitive (only the rich get decent healthcare there) and I don't expect I can just take a trip to London or Paris and expect their system to pay for my woes. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
