I think that there are enough really good HT surgeons in Europe, Canada, and the USA to avoid going to second-world places like Turkey for a HT. They simply don't have the same standards as other places, and I doubt they would be able to compete with the likes of Rahal, Feller etc.
A lot of European HT surgeons warn of taking the risk to go to Turkey and get a HT to save a little bit of money. It will cost you more in the end when you need to get it repaired.
Remember, we're talking about your looks here. Don't go second-rate just to save a few hundred Euro. All in or nothing. Go with who you think is the BEST, not the best value for money.
Keser is a very highly respected fue doctor. Ive been to turkey 3 times and never had any problems there. It remains an extremely popular tourist destination, even for family holidays.
I agree that its risky to visit any old HT doc there, but he does seem very profressional, and has good results. The price is very good I think. BUT, if i lived in the states I wouldnt bother. There are plenty of skilled HT docs in the states. Im in the UK, can be in turkey in a 3.5 hours very cheaply.
Many people would consider him one of the best fue surgeons around.
