colloid cyst, hydrocephalus
We came to Prof. Altai and his team because of hydrocephalus caused by a colloid cyst. Because of the cyst, I had severe headaches, nausea and vomiting. Sometimes I could not walk straight. Prof. Altai and his team performed a successful and professional brain surgery. They performed an endoscopic surgery with minimal incision. In three days I was back on my feet. Two weeks later, I was back to normal life. It has been 2.5 months since the surgery and all symptoms have disappeared. Professor Altay is a wonderful doctor with outstanding knowledge, experience and human qualities. I can't thank him and his team enough. Once you meet them, you will feel confidence instead of fear.

brain tumor
Professor Altai operated on my husband for a brain tumor. He carefully monitored the process from start to finish and successfully supervised the follow-up treatment and medication. The surgery went faster than we expected and my husband was back on his feet quickly. I believe Prof. Altai is one of the best in his field and his follow up has been very successful.

rib fracture
Professor Altai operated on my mother twice because of a rib fracture. We were very satisfied with his work. He is a very good person and a wonderful doctor. I had recommended him to a family I know, and they were also satisfied. The surgery was on time and the healing process was just as he said it would be. My mother is now recovering well and there were no problems after the surgery.

brain surgery
Professor Altai is one of the most reliable and respected professors I know. I had a complicated brain surgery with him, and I was back on my feet in three days. It is now four and a half months after the surgery and I am under his care all the time. Professor Altai and his assistant are excellent specialists and I will continue to contact them.
