“You create wonders here”

Professor Boris Brosnava is an academic at Sofia University specialised in economy. He is also one of the prominent ministers of parliament in the Bulgarian Assembly. 64 year old Brosnava was living a happy life in Sofia with his wife and daughter until he noticed unusual symptoms in his body.

Everything started one year ago. Brosnava suddenly started experiencing difficulty in hearing, hoarseness and a nasal congestion. All specialists in Sofia had a different opinion on the cause ranging from allergy to deviation. Complaints did not cease, on the contrary he suddenly faced a more severe problem: double vision.

Boris Brosnava’s wife was in shock. This is how she described that day: “I could not believe my eyes when I saw Boris that day in hospital. Both his eyes were looking at different angles. We could not communicate. The worst thing was that we did not know the reason”

Upon the significance of his condition Brosnava was transferred to a special hospital in Sofia dedicated to treating Bulgarian Government officials only. After several examinations Brosnava was diagnosed with laryngeal cancer and was recommended urgent surgery. The Brosnavas were in panic.

Boris Brosnava said, “I always paid great care to my health. I never smoked or drank. There are no cancer patients in my family. This is why it was extremely difficult to come to terms with my condition.” Boris Brosnava was operated at that hospital. Surgeons were only able to remove a part of the large tumor. He was told that the location and nature of the tumor was very bad. I was diagnosed too late so the only chance in Bulgaria was to undergo chemotherapy.

Meeting with Anadolu Medical Center

Boris Brosnava said, “I wanted to undergo chemotherapy treatment from professionals. This is why I looked into getting treatment outside Bulgaria. We did extensive research. First we contacted Johns Hopkins Medicine in the United States. They told us that we needn’t come all the way to America as treatment could be provided just as effectively at Anadolu Medical Center in Turkey. We immediately began to search about Anadolu Medical Center. First we visited their website and then consulted some patients who had been there previously. Everything we heard was positive. This was enough to make the final decision. We took the first flight to Istanbul”.

Anadolu Medical Center Medical Oncologist Professor Necdet Uskent, MD and Radiation Oncology Specialist Professor Kayihan Engin, MD treated Boris Brosnava. Over the course of a year of treatment Boris received three cures of chemotherapy and 35 cures of radiotherapy. Travelling to Istanbul for final check-ups, Boris was overjoyed to see he was clean of cancer cells. Boris Brosnava said, “I want to talk about the physicians at Anadolu Medical Center however I am stuck for words. They aren’t only professional, they are excellent people. They gave me the trust I needed since the day I arrived here.”

Boris Brosnava speaks of his experience at Anadolu Medical Center: “My main problem, double vision disappeared after first cure of chemotherapy and third cure of radiotherapy. My body responded positively to the treatment in a very short time. To be honest I did not expect this. The treatment went full speed and I recovered in a very short time. Everyone at Anadolu Medical Center has played a great role in my recovery. My family and I are indebted to everyone there from the specialists to nurses as well as our translator. I am grateful to everybody who helped me feel at home throughout my stay. We felt we were in the right hands the moment we walked through the doors of Anadolu Medical Center. My family and I were given the trust and belief that I would overcome this illness. We believe this played an important role in my treatment. We tell everyone in Bulgaria about Anadolu Medical Center. We urge them to come here.”

Speaking of how healthy he feels Boris Brosnava said, “You create wonders here”.
