Special Fields of Intrest :

After finishing my education I started my private practice by dealing with endoscopy of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract. By performing near 3000 endoscopies (gastroscopy, colonoscopy & rectosigmoidoscopy) including therrapeutic interventions I got the chance of better understanding of gastrointestinal pathologies.

As a fact, modern surgery goes minimally invasive. As far as I could, I tried to train myself in this field both theoretically and practically. In this era, performing of cholecystectomy, appendectomy, treatment of groin, ventral and hiatal hernias, treatment of ulcer perforations, achalasia, colonic pathologies, adrenal masses and splenectomies are performed laparoscopically in my practice. Single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) procedures are rutinely done in our practice. We also have plans about performing robotic surgery and NOTES (Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery) in the future.

Since 2006 as a part of a multidisciplinary practice I’m working with internists, endochrinologists, dietitians, plastic surgeons and psychiatrists for the invasive and minimally invasive treatment of the Morbid Obesity. Intragastric Baloon insertions, Gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass procedures are all performing in our center mostly laparoscopicaly.

According to the needs and nesseccities of the patient group that we are dealing in our hospital, I am used to take care of elderly (geriatric) patient and peopl who have multiple cohort diseases. Our surgical team is intensively familiar with preoperative preparing, choosing the right treatment, surgical procedures, postoperative care (including ICU period if necessary) and postoperative rehabilitation and diet programs for this group of patients.

As a member of the cancer treatment center in the Göztepe Medicalpark Hospital, in cooperations with medical and radiation oncologists, psychiatrists, dietitians, psychologs and other specialists I’m working as a part of the multidisciplinary treatment team for not only cure of the oncologic disorders but also trying for paliations and improving of the quality of life in cancer patients.

During the past 12 years I am in close contact with Prof. Dr. Yaman Tokat and his team in the area of liver transplantation and oncologic liver surgery. Alse I’m working with the Medicalpark Kidney Transplantation team in laparoscopic donor Nephrectomy operations for last two years.
