Pediatric Surgery

Pediatric Surgery is a specialized field of surgery for the treatment of conditions that can be surgically corrected in a baby, child, or adolescent such as congenital malformations, trauma, tumors and other acquired diseases in the pediatric age group.
The Department of Pediatric Surgery, founded in 1989, is a reference center for the West Mediterranean area of Turkey, mainly dealing with congenital or acquired surgical diseases of childhood, beginning with fetal consultancy until late adolescence.  
Our staff consisting of four peditaric surgeons, residents and specialized nurses is committed to provide the best possible surgical care. Yearly over 1250 surgeries in a broad range of general surgical procedures are performed, either elective or emergency, inpatient as well as outpatient.

A neonatal surgery intensive care unit with rich infrastructure including mechanical ventilators and  monitors capable of invasive pressure measurement in neonates, appropriately equipped patient rooms with beds for both small and large children and an experienced & dedicated staff contribute to our mission to promote excellence in pediatric surgical care.

While we try our best to raise the quality of patient care, evaluating complicated patients with multi-disciplinary cooperation, clinical and experimental research is running simultaneously. Retrospective and prospective clinical as well as experimental studies including fetal surgery are performed in coordination with the relevant branches and are presented in national/international congresses and published in national/international medical journals.

A pediatric surgical residency program with the goal to prepare the candidate to become a competent board certified pediatric surgeon is also available and a complete pediatric surgery curriculum is provided for medical students at the third and fourth year of their education with lectures and practical training.

Hence we work hard for excellence in patient care, clinical and basic laboratory research, and the education of students, residents and fellows.
