Ovarian cysts
I met Serkan Erkanli in 2018, I had ovarian cysts and since my cancer markers were high, the doctors I spoke to ( renowned in the field) recommended surgery. Serkan Erkanli examined me and told me that surgery might be the last option and that these cysts would go away on their own, but frequent follow up was necessary. As his professional experience gave me confidence, I listened to Serkan Erkanli and my cysts did indeed disappear. At the routine check-up I had in 2022, the cysts formed again and he recommended surgery as I was in menopause and there were cases of cancer in my family. The surgery was very comfortable due to his attentive attitude, detailed explanations, careful monitoring and psychological support before and after the surgery. I did not experience any pain or discomfort after the surgery, he kept me informed about everything with all patience and reassured me. He is a great doctor and a wonderful person. March 5, 2024.

fibroid removal surgery
This was my first experience with surgery. I had seen 6 doctors over the course of 2 years, I had been examined, had scans and tests but was hesitant to have surgery. Then, as a result of my search, I met Prof. Dr. Serkan Erkanli. He turned out to be a very experienced, well trained and reassuring doctor. Thanks to Dr. Serkan's detailed information, positive and calm approach, I decided to undergo the surgery and had a very successful fibroid removal surgery without any worries or anxieties. He personally checked on how I was feeling every day I stayed in the hospital after surgery. He is very disciplined, very professional and meticulous about his work. I am glad I had my surgery with Dr. Serkan, he saved me from a very big problem. I was very, very satisfied. If you want your surgery to be successful and without problems, I definitely recommend Dr. Serkan. I wish everyone many healthy days. July 12, 2023.

I went to Dr. Serkan in a stressful situation after the doctor who was seeing me informed me that I had a neoplasm and referred me to Dr. Serkan. He made our communication so comfortable that I trusted him and I had laparoscopic surgery, I had a myoma, I was already standing the second day after surgery with no pain. I wish every doctor was like him and successful and smiling, you are a great person Serkan Erkanli:) December 30, 2015

myoma removal
On May 30, 2014, I had surgery to remove a myoma. The myoma, like a balloon growing in the most unlikely corner of my uterus, was scraped out without damaging my uterus with exquisite skill. The surgery I had and the fact that the doctor did everything himself, right up to the post-op dressing, answering every question and giving clear information, was very supportive and reassuring. He is very professional and yet humble. I recommend him to everyone.

surgery
I am the daughter of an 80 year old woman. Unfortunately, we had a problem with our uterus. On recommendation we met Prof. Erkanli and his team. We feel very happy. I am talking about a wonderful person, both the trust he has in the patient and his relatives and his competence. Above all, I am talking about his humanity. Dear doctor, as my mother said, I wish there were more people like you in our world. Thank you so much for everything.... Serpil Aksoy (patient Kadriye Ustün) April 19, 2012.
