Diagnosis: dermatology

I consulted a dermatologist and had a dermatoscopy performed by a very pleasant female doctor!
Despite the fact that she signed up via the Internet and was afraid that everything would be long. Everything went on within the agreed time frame clearly and smoothly.

Diagnosis: Myasthenia gravis

I came with a positive attitude. And of course there were no downsides for me. I was immediately told that it would not be possible to cure me 100% (but I already knew 21 years ago that my myasthenia gravis was not curable). But the doctor does everything to make it comfortable for me to live with this disease.

Diagnosis: Herniated discs, spinal stenosis

I would like to express my deep gratitude and respect to the staff of Academic Hospital in Istanbul for the professionalism, sensitivity and care with which the operation for my mother was organized.

Hospital: As soon as you enter the clinic you can feel the high level of organization and cleanliness. All rooms are equipped with modern medical technologies, creating a feeling of confidence and security. The ease of use of the infrastructure left an extremely positive impression.

Doctor: Words of boundless gratitude I address personally to Prof. Dr. Murat Bezer. His high qualifications and experience, as well as the ability to build a trusting relationship with the patient, made this complex operation possible. He always took the time to explain all the nuances of the procedure and reassure us. The doctor visited my mother all postoperative days, including weekends, which was especially valuable, given the complexity of the operation. I am immensely glad that I entrusted the treatment of my mother to Dr. Murat Bezer. With all sincerity I recommend this doctor to everyone with a high level of professionalism.

Attendants: Nurses and junior medical staff are very attentive and caring. It is important to note that they paid attention to the smallest details, trying to make the recovery period after the operation easier for my mother. Postoperative care is organized at a high level.

 Consultants and Assistants: I especially want to highlight the work of Natalia, thanks to which we met Prof. Dr. Murat BEZER and Academic Hospital. Natalia, who was with us in online contact 24/7 and accompanied us with all sensitivity on all possible questions from the moment of the first consultation, during the stay in the clinic and after the stay in the hospital.

Many thanks also to Mihriban, without whom our stay at the clinic would have been much more difficult.

Natalia and Mihriban solved all organizational issues and were always ready to help. Their support has been a real gift to our family. In general, our experience at Academic Hospital left only positive impressions. This is a place where medical science is combined with sincere care for the patient. We are grateful to everyone who took part in the treatment of my mother, and we can confidently recommend this clinic to others.

What treatment for aseptic necrosis of the femoral head is provided in the hospital?

Treatment of aseptic necrosis of the femoral headAseptic necrosis of the femoral head (avascular necrosis, osteonecrosis) is a serious pathology of the hip joint caused by impaired blood circulation in the femoral head. It causes the death of bone tissue and the destruction of the joint.

The disease can develop gradually or rapidly.

It manifests itself in the form of pain in the hip area and limited joint mobility.

The disease is caused by many factors such as bone fractures, joint displacement, alcoholism, steroid use, cancer, atherosclerosis, HIV, autoimmune diseases, and others.

In 30% of cases, the exact cause cannot be established.

Pathological changes are conditionally divided into 5 stages. In the later stages, a person has complete destruction of the joints, which leads to disability.

In addition to the hip region, avascular necrosis can affect the joints of other regions: shoulder, ankle, and knee.

To diagnose the disease in the medical center, radiography, MRI, CT, osteoscintigraphy are used.

Depending on the progression of the disease, hospital doctors apply:

  • hip replacement;
  • osteotomy;
  • sparing arthroscopy;
  • stem cell treatment;
  • basic decompression;
  • bone grafting.

With complete destruction of the joint, arthroplasty is indicated.

Clinic surgeons use high-quality prostheses. The operation goes without complications. Positive results were recorded in more than 96% of patients.
