Laparoscopic Surgery (Minimally Invasive Surgery)

Laparoscopic surgeries are carefully performed for gall bladder, appendicitis, inguinal hernia, umbilical hernia, incisional hernia and gastric hernia (reflux) as well as advanced level laparoscopic surgery that requires experience for obesity, colon, adrenal gland, liver, pancreas and spleen operations. Aesthetic outcomes are good since no large incision is made for laparoscopic surgery, and moreover, postoperative pain is minimized. Patients may resume daily routines very soon in postoperative period.
Bariatric Surgery

Obesity is one of major global health problems, especially in Western populations. Many scientific studies demonstrate that obesity is the most important cause of many diseases, which increase mortality and morbidity. The primary aim of obesity surgery is to prevent occurrence of obesity-mediated diseases (such as diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular diseases and sleep apnea syndrome etc.) in addition to losing weight. If such diseases had already develop, the intent is to treat them.
Endoscopy Unit

Recently, endoscopy is the most sensitive method that is used to diagnose diseases of organs with a lumen (esophagus, stomach, duodenum, colon). Endoscopy can be used for both diagnostic and curative purpose.
Gastroscopy, colonoscopy and ERCP (removal of the calculi located in biliary tract) as well as therapeutic endoscopic interventions (dilatation of esophageal stricture, stent placement in cancers, placement of feeding tubes, and hemostasis) are successfully performed using digital imaging technology at the Endoscopy Unit of our hospital.
Risk of contamination, which may likely occur during endoscopic procedures, is eliminated at special sterilization unit and thus, safety of endoscopic procedure is maximized.
Capsule endoscopy

This imaging modality uses a tiny wireless camera to take photographs of digestive system. In conventional endoscopy, a thin device with a camera in one end is advanced from mouth or anus to view stomach, duodenum, colon and a part of small intestine. However, capsule endoscopy starts by swallowing a capsule that is equal to a vitamin pill in size. This method enables viewing parts of the digestive system that cannot be visualized by conventional endoscopic methods.
Moreover, capsule endoscopy is also used to detect colonic polyps that cannot be detected in colonoscopy or if colonoscopy is contraindicated for a reason whatsoever.
Reflux Surgery Center

Reflux is a serious disease that is manifested by reflux of gastric content to mouth and epigastric burn and affects approximately 40% of the population, and it may cause pharyngolaryngeal and lung problems or even permanent problems such as asthma. If left untreated, reflux may lead to many diseases, including cancer. Therefore, Reflux Surgery Centre of Istanbul Cerrahi hosts technological means and methods that are required for diagnosis and treatment of reflux.
Endocrine Surgery

Our clinic uses modern tools and devices to diagnose and treat neuroendocrine diseases of thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, adrenal glands and pancreas.
Breast Surgery

Breast cancer is among the most common cancers that threat life of women all around the world and it is the most common cause of cancer deaths in women. Therefore, regular examination is recommended for breast cancer in Breast Clinic of İstanbul Cerrahi Hospital. Self-examination has great importance for early diagnosis.
Women aged 20 to 25 should make self-examination at monthly intervals, while women aged 30 to 40 should have breast examination, ultrasound and mammography and women aged >40 should have breasts examined by doctor and mammography at annual intervals.
Recently, breast conserving modalities and procedures are preferred for treatment of breast cancer. For advanced stage conditions, breast reconstruction is performed, if it is necessary to remove the breast entirely. Thus, defective breast secondary to surgical repair is reconstructed into the natural form. In İstanbul Cerrahi Hospital, a breast with near natural appearance can be reconstructed by experienced surgeons who use modern techniques.
