Newborn Circumcision
We went to Dr. Selami for newborn circumcision. He is not only an expert in his field, but also a wonderful doctor with a great approach. He made a potentially stressful process very easy with his kindness and professionalism. Before the procedure, he performs an exam and makes the decision to circumcise, performing the procedure while soothing the child with breast milk. His love for his job and children is evident in every action he takes. We are so glad to have met him on our journey.

Testicular neoplasia
Our son was diagnosed with testicular failure after birth. We learned that he needed surgery to lower his testicle. When it comes to a child, especially an infant, it is a very distressing situation for parents. But we were very lucky to meet Dr. Selami. We trusted him from the first examination. He explained the situation to us so well with all the pros and cons that we had no questions left. Surgery might have been necessary, but he waited until the last moment, taking his time to send us for surgery. Our son ended up having surgery, but the process was very comfortable. We left the hospital with smiles. The surgery was very successful. On behalf of my wife, me and our son, I thank him for his smile, energy and professionalism.

Hypospadias and enlarged kidney
My son Tariq was born with hypospadias and enlarged kidney. While researching this problem, we consulted at least 7-8 professors. But with both heart and mind we chose Dr. Selami. He underwent two surgeries. Despite the success of the first surgery, my son's body did not accept the procedure. During this period, we cannot find words to describe the moral support Dr. Selami gave us. He approached us with such patience and compassion that our lost hope was revived. On August 29, he performed a second surgery with tissue grafting and the result was excellent. This disease is a very difficult process for both the family and the child, but the one reason we were able to go through the process most comfortably was Dr. Selami. We were always able to easily contact him and get answers to our questions. We are so glad our paths crossed.

Hydronephrosis, ureterocele and kidney anomaly
We found out about our son's kidney enlargement while he was still in the womb. Our son was one month old when we met the doctor. After an ultrasound, we learned that he had hydronephrosis (3rd degree) of both kidneys, ureterocele and 3 kidney anomaly. During this difficult period, our doctor was there for us with all his medical knowledge, compassion and sincerity. First, at 4.5 months old, he underwent surgery for ureterocele, which was very successful. Due to this surgery, the degree of hydronephrosis was reduced. Later, we found vesicoureteral reflux (3rd degree) during urination. During this period, we waited until 3 years and when the degree remained the same, bilateral injection surgery was performed. After the surgery, the DMR and hydronephrosis decreased to grade 2. At our last follow-up in July 2023, we saw that the injection had reduced the degree to 1. After that, all that was needed was continued monitoring and no more injections were needed. Again, we thank our doctor who has been by our side for 7 years and patiently and thoroughly answered all our questions. We are so glad we got to know him.

inguinal hernia
Our 2 month old baby had an inguinal hernia and we were very afraid. Our wonderful, experienced doctor performed a very successful surgery. We came to the hospital from far away, and he took such good care of us that he relieved all of our fears and panic. Even after the surgery was completed, he continued to monitor our condition closely. We are so glad we found Dr. Selami, may God bless him a thousand times over.

Hydronephrosis of the left kidney
We found out that Mohammed had enlargement of his left kidney back during a detailed ultrasound in the womb, and we were told that this was something we needed to monitor. When our baby was 6 months old, the decision was made to have surgery due to grade 3 hydronephrosis of the left kidney. Dr. Selami evaluated all ultrasound reports, did scintigraphy and carefully considered all options before deciding on surgery. By the way, our doctor is not only an amazing surgeon, but also an excellent pediatric urologist. He informed us so thoroughly about the surgery and the process and was so thorough in putting us at ease. You can rest assured that you will have no questions left. On the day of surgery, we trusted our child to his smiling and sincere face with complete peace of mind. After the surgery, he was in touch with us day and night, keeping a constant eye on all the details, which helped us through the process with ease. Muhammad is now 14 months old and at his last checkup, our doctor gave us the good news that he is over it. Our sweet, kind and smiling doctor, we are so glad you are there and that we met you. We are so grateful to you that we can't put it into words. If you have a need in this area, I would say never have surgery without getting a valuable opinion from Dr. Selami.

Hydronephrosis of the right kidney
When we came to see Dr. Selami, our son was only 37 days old and we did not have a complete diagnosis or information about treatment for grade 4 hydronephrosis in his right kidney. Our doctor's careful review of previous ultrasounds and scintigraphy, as well as his attention to the perinatologic findings in the womb, which had been ignored until now, led him to refer us to a pediatric radiologist, which corrected the misdiagnosis of a narrowed kidney. Thus, our son may have avoided an unnecessary surgery in his short life. Now, with our doctor's guidance, we will work together to treat our son's unilateral vesicoureteral reflux. Thank you for everything. We recommend other parents whose children suffer from kidney and ureter problems to at least seek his valuable opinion, as this is the right address.
